London: Calderoli, Answer Illegal Islam with Crusades

Agenzia Giornalistica Italia, Jul 8

“Islam has to be declared illegal until Islamists are not prepared to renounce to those parts of their pseudo political and religious doctrine glorifying violence and oppression of other cultures and religions. Islam promotes hatred and we now, after having tried the way of love, have to answer with the crusades of western peoples who still remember the battle of Lepanto”, wrote Roberto Calderoli, Northern League coordinator, in an editorial published today on the party’s daily newspaper “La Padania”.

“Battles are not only won by armies but also by values, unfortunately we lost those values when we gave up our Christian roots, our identity, our culture. The West is losing its battle. A world condemning Oriana Fallaci and approving a judge who frees terrorists taking them for soldiers already lost the game. We are facing a real war where the enemy uses terrorism and we answer with flower power. Terrorism cannot be fought by offering peace but only by striking back the same way. Today we’re crying for the victims of London attacks together with their families and we suffer with those wounded, but tomorrow we have to fight back using the same arms”.

Calderoli also commented on the Italian presence in Iraq: “Tomorrow we’ll have to react also with a progressive withdrawal of our troops from Iraq, the resources employed in today’s peace mission could more usefully be employed to fight terrorism in our country. We have to get prepared to answer in the same language, maybe in this way we will win the war”.
