Jerusalem, July 1 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta on
Monday said "the Shoah is an open wound which tears the land of
Jerusalem and will always concern us".
Speaking during a visit to Jerusalem, Letta cited late
Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini - who once said "it is not enough
to be against, it is necessary to be for the Jewish people" -
and also noted that 'anti-Semitism is a cancer of humanity and a
threat for the peace of all populations".
"We must not and do not want to ever let our guard down,"
especially "at a time when the germs of anti-Semitism appear in
our beloved Europe," Letta said after visiting the Holocaust
memorial in Jerusalem.
The premier said he will attend ceremonies in the fall
commemorating the 70th anniversary of the deportation of Roman
Jews.
"This year, which marks the 70th anniversary of the
insurrection of Warsaw's Ghetto will also mark the 70 years
since the deportation of Roman Jews, following the degeneration
sparked by the racial laws.
"I will attend on behalf of my government the commemoration
of the latter and other initiatives organized by Jewish
communities".
