Thank You, Mr. Grillo

vitaleby Guido Vitale*

When Italian Jewry speaks with one voice, we are heard loud and clear and even a populist leader, like comedian Beppe Grillo, fails to make people laugh.
Faced with our complaints about his anti-Semitic ravings, the artist was left with no arguments. All he could muster were insults and incoherent babbling.
And in conclusion he confronted Italian Jews with a threat: “You must change your press office”. We would like to give him our heartfelt thanks. The value of our work at the press office of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities could have received no more convincing recognition.
