Anti-dhimmitude in Italy as Jacques Lefranc gets a new job. However, I still wish he were President of the European Union.

MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s right-wing Northern League wants to hire as its Paris correspondent a French editor who was sacked for printing caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad, party member and Reforms Minister Roberto Calderoli said on Friday.
Jacques Lefranc, editor at newspaper France Soir, published cartoons that first appeared in a Danish daily and triggered protests by Muslims around the world.
“He is certainly a person with the courage to tell things the way they are, rather than write what his boss tells him,” Calderoli told reporters at a Northern League support rally in front of the Danish consulate.
La Padania, the Northern League’s newspaper, also printed some of the offending cartoons on Friday under the headline: “… no one will fire me!” One of the caricatures showed the Prophet wearing a turban in the shape of a bomb….
“This is only the tip of the iceberg of the religious war Islamist extremists have declared on us,” Calderoli said, surrounded by a handful of party members waving flags.
