Segre cites celebrity chef among 24 'anti-Semitic' slurs

'Deafening silence on Palestine' says Rubio, hate says consul

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 9 - Holocaust survivor and Life Senator Liliana Segre has cited 24 people including an Italian celebrity chef for making the latest in a string of anti-Semitic attacks on her on social media.
    Segre, 92, said former semi-professional rugby player and DMAX TV channel chef Gabriele Rubini aka chef Rubio had slammed her for not defending the Palestinians in her recent remarks on Israel, which he called a "fascist" state.
    Rubio, 39, accused Segre of "a deafening silence over the plight of Palestine".
    Israel Honorary Consul Marco Carrai said Friday it was "disappointing that so many young people follow a figure who incites social hate like this chef," and added that unlike Rubio's many tattoos, the one on Segre's arm had been inscribed when she reached Auschwitz as a girl. (ANSA).
