Maltese Social Solidarity Minister defends antisemitic comments by consultant

Maltese Social Solidarity Minister Michael Farrugia said that “everyone has the right to their personal opinion” after an adviser, Charlie Azzopardi, wrote on his personal Facebook page: “The Jews are the real terrorists. Wherever they go, there is bloodshed and war”. Columnist Mark-Anthony Falzon filed a complaint with the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality, saying that Azzopardi’s comments were irreconcilable with the brief of the Social Solidarity Ministry: “Azzopardi’s role as consultant to the ministry is no longer tenable and I call on the minister to sack him.”
