Italy rejects ICC equivalency between Israel and Hamas

Italy foreign minister says it is “unacceptable” to equate the Israeli democratic government with the Hamas terror group.

The comments are Antonio Tajani’s first on the International Criminal Court prosecutor’s request for arrest warrants for the leaders of Israel and Hamas.

“It seems to me truly singular, I would say unacceptable, to equate a government legitimately elected by the people in a democracy with a terrorist organization that is the cause of everything that is happening in the Middle East,” Tajani tells a TV show.
