Flags of Israel were displayed in the Italian parliament in show of support for the Jewish State and to protest against the terrorism of Hamas.

In a tweet posted to Twitter after he addressed a rally in support of Israel in Rome, last week, Matteo Salvini, leader of the right-wing Northern League and a former Deputy Prime Minister said, “I expect a clear stance from the Italian government, for them to have the courage to say that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are terrorists: they do not want peace but destruction. #IsraelUnderAttack.”

In an interview with Israel Hayom, Salvini reaffirmed his total support for Israel and its right to self-defense.

“I had the opportunity to recognize and appreciate the Israeli people: a generous, supportive, welcoming, and industrious people. I express my support for the children, families, older people, and soldiers under threat for years from missiles, attacks, and Islamic violence. I hope the Palestinian refusal to recognize the legitimacy of the Jewish state will come to an end.”

“It’s self-defense. What is unacceptable is the silence and hypocrisy of European institutions, the UN, and many governments in light of this unacceptable violence,” Salvini, who has received death threats, added.
