Berlusconi Praised Mussolini for “Having Done Good”

Former Prime Minister of Italy, infamous Silvio Berlusconi has managed to get himself into hot water again with his outrageous statement, defending Benito Mussolini at a ceremony to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

He said the fascist dictator made an alliance with the Nazis, because probably he feared Germany’s potential expansion, The Telegraph reports.

He also praised Mussolini for “having done good” other than implementing the racial laws which he described as part of the requirements of the alliance with Germans.

After the country’s disastrous experience in the war, new laws were enacted to forbid the defense of Fascism. Now, some demand that Berlusconi be prosecuted for promoting Fascism.

Shortly after the outrage to the statement by the political leaders and the Italian Union of Jewish Communities was publicized by the media, Berlusconi claimed that the political left was trying to exploit his comment about Mussolini for their election campaign.

Under Mussolini’s regime over 6,000 Jews were killed, and more than 7,000 were deported to death camps.

This is not the first time Berlusconi has disclosed sympathy towards the Fascist leader. In 2010, he told the world leaders at a Paris conference that he had been reading Mussolini’s journals; years earlier Berlusconi had claimed that Mussolini “never killed anyone.”

Berlusconi also has an insidious record of criminal allegations, including mafia collusion, false accounting, tax fraud, corruption, bribery of police officers and judges, and a sex scandal involving solicitation of sex from minors. He has been found guilty of providing false testimony in 1990 but was not imprisoned due to expiration of the statute of limitations. He was either acquitted or charges were dropped for the other lawsuits.

The media mogul is running for the Parliamentary in the elections that will be held in Feb. 24-25, after the 4 year ban to hold public office was over. The band was instituted due to a fraud conviction in 2012. He has not made his mind yet on whether he will be seeking a fourth term as premier.
