Italy to fight anti-Semitism in cyberspace

After Toulouse attacks, Italy cannot just dry its tears and move on, says Italian Integration Minister. The Italian government plans to introduce new legislation to beef up measures countering anti-Semitism and hate speech in cyberspace. Italian Integration Minister Andrea Riccardi told Jewish leaders at Rome’s main synagogue during a meeting Monday that he was working with the country’s justice and interior ministers to “give a clear response to those who disseminate hatred via the Internet.” Riccardi said he planned to introduce measures that could allow the postal police to block racist websites and also target regular visitors “to these shameful web pages.”
