Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi told the Palestinians on Wednesday that "as it is right to cry for the victims of the Holocaust, it is right to express sorrow for the Palestinian victims [in Gaza]."
...Berlusconi, who before his visit to Israel had called Israel's settlement policy "a mistake" which could be an obstacle to any future peace agreement, told a news conference Wednesday that he understands the importance of halting Israeli settlement expansion, which he termed "a basic condition to launching productive negotiations."
He also renewed his call for a type of Marshall-plan for the Palestinians.
"I urge all countries to support the Palestinian economy. There will be no peace without prosperity," he said.

Berlusconi, Not Much of A Friend
Israel has been celebrating Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi's visit.
Berlusconi? Isn't he the Italian politician with the public sex scandals that made Bill Clinton look like a saintly, model husband?
Just because Berlusconi claims great "love" for Israel doesn't mean that his policies towards Israel are good for us?
His actual policies are pro-Pseudostan aka Palestine sic and bode very dangerous for Israel's continued existence.
