Translator says she rejected request to translate for Netanyahu during Italy visit

An Israeli translator says she has turned town a request to translate for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to Italy this weekend.

“It’s not only that I don’t share Netanyahu’s political view, but because his leadership is extremely dangerous to democracy in the State of Israel,” Olga Dalia Padoa writes on Facebook. “More so, if I agree to cooperate in translating his remarks, my children won’t forgive me.”
