The point is the Mr. Fini did not JUST visit Israel on official duties on 2003 . He paied SIX official trips to Israel during the first Berlusconi government while Minister of Foreign Affairs and at least a couple later on. There are countries out there which never got an Italian State visit. He puts his men in some boards of israeli companies. He was the only politician of a certain level to defend the Wall while being built. He approved the Gaza slaughter . Albeit haughty as a personality, he is cheek-in-tongue and pat-shouldering with a few hard-liners Italian Jews. This is all quite bizarre for a man who was siding with fascist mob and who twenty years ago claimed in public that "Mussolini is the greatest stateman of the century". This is an opportunistic politician with no values and no personal opinion other then his own ambitions.
