Italian Jewish Leader Reveals Wave of Hate

ROME (JTA)—An Italian Jew-
ish community leader has disclos-
ed a wave of anti-Semitic litera-
ture, daubings of anti-Jewish slo-
gans on walls and threatening
phone calls to the chief rabbi of
Rome, Elio Toaff, and to other
prominent Italian Jews.
Renzo Levi, vice president of
the Union of Italian Jewish Com-
munities, said at a press confer-
ence that his organization attrib-
uted the hate activities to an
international movement, possibly
composed of extremists of the
right and left wings. Asked if he
suspected specific individuals or
groups, Levi said, "Yes, we do,
but we cannot prove our suspic-

Anonymous telephone calls
were made to Chief Rabbi Toaff
by a man who threatened, "To-
morrow you die." Sim il a r
threats were received by Aldo
Garosci, a Jewish journalist, and
Gianfranco Tedeschi, president
of the Rome Jewish community.
Levi said the threats followed at
least 16 incidents in 20 months
of anti-Semitic literature being
distributed and anti-Jewish slo-
gans being painted on walls in
12 Italian cities.
He said that vandalizing of Jew-

ish cemeteries in three Italian
towns last year and swastika daub-
ings on synagogue walls were
ominously similar to incidents in
West Germany, Holland, France
and Belgium. While the telephone
threats appeared to come from
right-wingers, slogans such as
"Jew equals SS" appear to be the

work of leftist extremists, he said.
