Italy’s prime minister issued a public apology after a member of Parliament from his party used anti-Semitic stereotypes. Last week, Guido Crosetto suggested that Jewish financial interests and “great Jewish and American Freemasonry” were behind a scandal involving the chief of the Bank of Italy, Antonio Fazio, who is under pressure to step down after being accused of discriminating against a foreign bank in a takeover battle. Crosetto’s statements drew sharp reaction from Italian Jewish leaders.
