The leader of Italy’s Lega party, Matteo Salvini, was “criticized for swearing an oath of loyalty to the Italian people on a bible, saying ‘in my Italy, immigration has rules.’” Salvini sai: “In my Italy, immigration has rules, numbers and limits, as in America and Canada. According to you, the Gospel says welcome anyone? With 5 million Italians in poverty, the ‘next neighbour’ is in Milan, Naples, Turin, Rome.”
His critic was Roman Catholic Archbishop Gian Carlo Perego, a.k.a. the “bishop of migrants.”
Matteo Salvini is justified in his resolve to restore sensible immigration policies in Italy. Salvani stated rightly on Facebook that “immigration out of control leads to chaos, anger, social confrontation.” Last summer, Italy was overwhelmed with a flood of 13,500 African migrants within two days.
The mess in Europe has already proven the truth of Salvani’s statement, with the rise of go-zones, mass rapes, migrant violence, sharia patrols, and debt in the billions. Preventative measures against jihad attacks on crowds is an added exorbitant cost, and even worse have been the deadly jihad attacks in Europe.
Salvani stated a meaningful point:
Now I understood why on the left they are so angry, they would like to swear on the Quran.
Whether one supports Salvani as a leader or not, it could be said that the West has tolerated the intolerable in kowtowing to Muslims who seek to expand the scope and influence of sharia in the West. They are paving the way for the proponents of political Islam.
“Italian Populist Leader Slams Pro-Migrant Bishop: ‘The Gospel Doesn’t Say to Welcome Everyone,’” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, February 28, 2018:
Populist leader of the Lega party Matteo Salvini struck back at a pro-migrant bishop who attacked him for swearing an oath of loyalty to the Italian people on a bible, saying “in my Italy, immigration has rules”. Salvini promised to swear his oath of office on a bible last Saturday at a rally in Milan which drew the ire of Roman Catholic archbishop Gian Carlo Perego, also known as the “bishop of migrants”, Il Giornale reports.
“Here we are faced with a leader who contradicts himself with the Gospel and with the rosary and on the other hand he preaches the non-acceptance and refusal of the other: yesterday the southerner, today the foreigner,” Perego said referring to the Lega’s past as a northern separatist party.
In response to the criticism, Salvini said: “In my Italy, immigration has rules, numbers and limits, as in America and Canada. According to you, the Gospel says welcome anyone? With 5 million Italians in poverty, the ‘next neighbour’ is in Milan, Naples, Turin, Rome.”
At a rally in Padua on Monday, Salvini went further, saying: “Now I understood why on the left they are so angry, they would liketo swear on the Quran.”….
