The Jewish community in Torino, Italy, has demanded the dismissal of a high school teacher who has been teaching students that Israel has no right to exist and that it should be removed from the map, Israel Radio reported on Thursday. According to the community's complaint, the teacher has voiced support in his classes for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's calls for the destruction of Israel and has recommended that his students read Hitler's Mein Kampf. The Italian Education Ministry has opened an investigation into the matter. The head of Torino's Jewish community, Tolio Levy, said that the teacher's actions reflect a wave of anti-Israel sentiment that has become prevalent in the city.
