Berlusconi says equidistance on Israel 'unacceptable'

Centre-right leader urges 'defence' of Jewish state

(ANSA) - Rome, October 19 - Former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi called Monday for the "defence of Israel" and said the international community is maintaining an "unacceptable equidistance" between aggressors and those attacked.
    "The defence of Israel today more than ever is the defence of the reasons for freedom, democracy and civil and religious pluralism," the media magnate said.
    Berlusconi condemned what he called "the very grave attacks harming Israeli citizens".
