(Daily Alert)

Matteo Renzi, 39, the former mayor of Florence who was sworn in on Saturday as Italy’s prime minister, may bring Italy, already one of Israel’s key allies in Europe, even closer to the Jewish state. “The main problem of the area is Iran – if we don’t solve that one we will not be able to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” Renzi said during a 2012 debate. Renzi also voiced doubts about the Palestinian bid for membership in the UN and criticized Italy’s decision to follow other EU countries in voting in favor. (Ha’aretz)
