Rome Jewish leader denies attacking 5-Star's Grillo

Rome, March 22 - The president of Rome's Jewish community on Friday denied calling the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) led by comedian-turned-politician "more dangerous than the Fascists". "I have never said that Beppe Grillo's movement is worse than the Fascist one, nor have I thought it," said Riccardo Pacifici, responding to an interview recently published in the Israeli Haaretz newspaper. Pacifici expressed shock at what he said were "false thoughts" about Grillo and the 5-Star Movement that were attributed to him. But he added that in general the group he heads vigils over the numerous comments that were posted on Grillo's blog since these were reminiscent of the extremist leftist and rightist culture, comments which are often hostile to Jews and Israel.
