Hi, folks. While Pope John Paul II said - in italian - something like "you, the Jews, are the ELDER brothers of we, the Christians", Mr. Berlusconi misinterpreted ELDER brother with BIG brother, which has another significance. However, I doubt Mr. Berlusconi has ever read Orwell's 1994. He's simply poorly educated. Trust me.
from the article: Berlusconi: We mourn Gaza victims just as we cry over Holocaust
