Italian minister blasts Muslim protesters' prayers

ROME (Reuters) - Italy's defense minister warned the country's Muslims to stop further "provocations" after thousands held prayers in public squares in Milan during pro-Palestinian demonstrations over the past week.

Ignazio La Russa, from the right-wing National Alliance, said he did not oppose protests or want to deny anyone the right to pray, but called the public prayers a challenge to peace.

"I say enough of the provocations of Islamists in Milan," he told Il Giornale newspaper on Sunday. "In Milan, a legitimate demonstration ended in a deliberately provocative mosque under the open sky."

Thousands of Muslims knelt with their heads bowed to the ground in prayer before Milan's central train station in one of several pro-Palestinian protests on Saturday.

A week ago, Muslims held prayers in front of Milan's central cathedral, angering right-wing politicians in the overwhelming Catholic country who called it an affront to Christianity.

Muslim leaders later apologized, saying no offence was intended. There are about 1 million Muslims in Italy, making up almost two percent of the population.

"What would have happened if a group of Christians gathered together to pray with a rosary before Mecca? They probably would have been stoned," said La Russa, who described himself as a practicising Catholic who attends Mass almost every Sunday.

Milan's deputy mayor issued a similar warning to Muslims, saying four protests in seven days was too much.

"Enough with pro-Hamas marches now," said Riccardo De Corato. "Milan is not a province of Gaza and has no intention of reluctantly instituting this type of 'Gaza Saturdays.'"

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's center-right coalition, which includes the hardline anti-immigrant Northern League, has clashed with Italy's Muslim community in the past.

It irked Muslims last year with plans to block the construction of new mosques in Italy.

Protests against the Israeli offensive continued in Italy on Sunday, with 3,000 people marching through the center of Naples. Another 1,000 held hands to form a human chain and march through Rome's historic center to demand an end to violence in Gaza.

I commend the government of Italy, or at least those government ministers willing to stand up & finally say, enough! In the end, protests are one thing, but making them an almost regular occurrence & making them over into religious affairs, amounts to pushing one's religion onto others. The minister who said no Muslim nation would permit Christians to do this, was exactly right. In fact, in most Muslim nations. the majority of other than Muslims are even afraid to admit they are not Muslim for fear of reprisals. And reprisals are a regular occurrence in those countries. Deaths, serious injuries, are typical, not occasional. To demand people in the west accept regular protests & religious events while knowing religion in other nations is forbidden, amounts to demands the world bow to one faith at the expense of all others.
The issue for most westerners is Islam demands all bow to it & respect it, while it disrespects all others. And Islam is a law & a religion wrapped up in one oppressive system. While in most western nations religion is separate from government.
We do not want religion & government mixed. We have fought against that & many have taken that position to an extreme. Asking all to accept Islams demands is unacceptable.
I wish the people of Italy luck. They take the correct stance for humanity, but Islam will make its violent opposition known.

When it comes to Islam it is a one-way street.

It's only a one way street to the muz and the appeasers that tolerate their crap. I've got a feeling that it won't be long, in western countries, before the muz feel the backlash. It's happening more and more already. Won't be long....and the asshats have it coming.

I very heartly needed to read something like this. I'm glad that there is one country in this world that isn't afraid of saying what needed to be said. And that one political person is correct what he had said about Catholics saying the rosaries in Mecca, it wouldn't be tolerated, they would be killed or forced to convert.

Muslims: Integrate 100% in Europe or move to Gaza.

It's about time someone stood up to these pedophiles. Islam is an atrocity that should not be tolerated.

As far as I can tell from here in America, the only countries where the politicians are brave enough to stand up against the Muslim cockroaches are Israel, Italy, Denmark and possibly Finland.

Even Australia is now caving in to Muslim demands.

Western countries need to stop all immigration of Muslims else they will end up like England, France and The Netherlands and become overpopulated with evil Muslim cockroaches.
