Italy Rejects Libyan Interference in Cabinet Decisions
Could it be the Italians are starting to rouse from their slumber, and are getting fed up with islam??
(CNSNews.com) – Silvio Berlusconi has yet to take office after being re-elected Italian prime minister, but already the conservative politician faces the possibility of new tensions with some in the Muslim world.
A prominent organization in Libya headed by Muammar Gadaffi’s son has called for the incoming government in Rome not to appoint as a minister a politician whose views on Islam have angered Muslims in the past.
Roberto Calderoli served as reforms minister in Berlusconi’s last government, but he resigned under pressure in February 2006 after deadly riots at an Italian consulate in Libya’s second city, Benghazi.
Libyans who attacked the mission were angry because Calderoli had during a television program displayed a T-shirt depicting one of 12 cartoons satirizing Mohammed, the Muslim prophet, that were at the time at the center of an international furor.
Calderoli, a leading member of the anti-immigration Northern League party which is part of Berlusconi’s center-right coalition, could return to the cabinet after the coalition’s unexpectedly comfortable Apr. 14 election victory. Berlusconi is expected to be sworn in later this week for a third term as prime minister.
Eleven people were killed and dozens injured when Libyan security forces clashed with rioters throwing rocks and bottles and trying to torch the consulate in Benghazi on Feb. 17, 2006.
The incident was among the most serious to erupt during a period of protests across the Muslim world over the publication in Danish newspapers of the “Mohammed cartoons.” People were also killed in protests in Nigeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
The Benghazi rioting occurred after the Gadaffi International Foundation, headed by Saif al-Islam Gadaffi – the Libyan leader’s son, and seen by some as a likely successor – issued a statement drawing attention to Calderoli’s T-shirt appearance and calling for protests.
At the weekend, the foundation issued a new statement through Libya’s official JANA news agency, pointing to the possibility of Calderoli returning to the Italian cabinet.
It accused the Italian politician of being “the true killer of the Libyan citizens” who died during the rioting.
Right. Italy is responsible for muslims with no emotional self control rioting and getting themselves shot by Libyan security forces. Just like American Foreign policy is responsible for making muslims strap on a bomb vest, walk into a public area full of civilians and detonating. Just like Europe was responsible for muslim moors invading, occupying and establishing a caliphate in Spain that lasted 800 years.
I am so glad Qaddafi cleared that up for me. I am now fully wiser, knowing that Italy is responsible for muslims in Libya rioting over a politician in Italy showing a t-shirt depicting a cartoon of the pedophile muhammed.
