Sadly, anti-Semitism in modern Italy is only a TINY FRACTION in comparison to the anti-Semitism that is rampant in the nations neighboring Israel. Of course, many of the "journalists" and "human rights activists" who ritually condemn Israel (and ignore the xenophobia, chauvinism, and glorification of violence within Arab/Islamic, and specifically Palestinian, nationalism) were born and raised in European countries with such deeply ingrained cultural traditions of anti-Semitic accusations. It's sad that Jews -- and now their lone state, Israel -- have been so demonized for so long. The hypocrisy is sickening.
