New Italian mayor, a member of the Secessionist League of the North party, halts plans to construct Mosque in the city of Italian city. Has Islamic “prayer center” bulldozed, names the once future site of the Mosque after a famous Italian conservative.
From International News…
This decision was taken by the committee of Oppeano (Verona, Italy), where yesterday morning a building used by Muslims for prayer was bulldozed. In its place, the Municipality will create a public square named after the writer of The Rage and the Pride, which promoted a bitter campaign against Islam.
The decision to raze the structure which had been opened by ONLUS [translator’s note: Organizzazione Non Lucrativa di Utilita’ Sociale, a non-profit registered Italian charity] “For the success of Muslims”, was taken by the municipal administration, which acquired the area for €70,000 in order to transform it into an open area for parking and green space.
“My citizens did not want this takeover,” explained the mayor, Alessandro Montagnoli, deputy of the Lega Nord, “above all because it could create problems of practicability and cohabitation with the residents.”
Site once earmarked for a large Mosque, will now be called Oriana Fallaci square. Fallaci is one of Italy’s most famous journalists, and one of Europe’s most famous female journalists. She joined armed Anti-Mussolini partisans at age 15 and became a professional journalist at age 16. In 1967 she became a war correspondent in Vietnam.
She once nailed Henry Kissinger to the wall so bad that Kissinger stated afterward, ” that was the single most disastrous conversation I have ever had with the press.”
She passed away two years ago and is now denounced by the left-wing European media. Before her death she became an icon of the Italian right-wing. At age 75 she was a victim of a campaign by Italian socialists to have her convicted of “thought crimes” for speaking out against Islam immigration into Italy.
She also rallied against illegal immigration in the United States. She recounted tales of her own horrifying experiences in Mexico and urged Americans to keep them out of the United States.
