Italian Multiculturalism goes up in smoke!

Have the people of Italy had enough?

When the Italian elections confirmed Silvio Berlusconi's reelection as Prime Minister in April, I was less then impressed, Mr Berlusconi was previously in power and did little but insult people, not that it was not entertaining, but he achieved nothing that was worthwhile.

Well a few things have aroused my interest, firstly the burning of the gypsy camps in Naples and the rounding up of a few hundred others around Italy, It seems that the local mafia took the lead in Naples and was applauded by the locals, whilst representatives of the state (police and firemen) were jeered and stoned by angry crowds.

A Roma web site reports that the UN is mute when asked about the riots in Italy.

I never used to know what real Gypsies were until eastern Europe began to join the EU, I used to think of them as romantic travellers, beautiful and sultry women, charming men and an edgy folksy but terribly nice culture.

Well, Having lived in London and travelled Europe, I can safely say that my former views have been replaced by a somewhat less flattering idea of what Gypsies are like.

Even in my local town, there are gypsies who try to sell The Big Issue, as if I want to read that pap, and another fella who plays a guitar really badly, and he has been doing that in the same spot for years! Although to be fair, at least those Gypsies are not aggressive like the ones in London, and they don't seem to drug their children either.

However, there is a connection between Gypsies and crime, when the Gypsies come to town, the crime rate strangely sky rockets, and then when they leave, the crime leaves too!

I can't say I blame the Neapolitans for their anger, when your government abandons you, sometimes you just have to make do!

Secondly, a mosque in Verona is to be raised and a garden square to be built in its place, named after Oriana Fallaci, the legendary 'Islamophobe' who cheated her fatwah!

It is encouraging that someone somewhere is successfully opposing the building, or in this case the development of another mosque, it would of been frequented by illegal immigrants, a succour to Islamic anti-Christian violence and a blot on that beautiful town. More immigrants would mean, more intimidation, more threats more violence all leading to white flight, which would just leave that place an Islamic stronghold.

This sort of thing needs to become more frequent, we need to keep what is ours, we must not allow the liberals to sell our birth right from out under us.

These two small stories, based in two separate communities in one European country, may not be call for much in the way of celebration, yet, but it is an encouraging start!

The hight of ignorance comes out in this appauling article by Tory Irish. A man who also turned into cheap savage dog, like the uneducated Italian savage dogs in Napels who lost their minds.
If only they woke up and realised what they are doing to a divine rich and beautiful culture with Asian roots, deep tradtions, beautiful music, loving families and innocent kids. A culture that has been stereotyped by outsiders for over 200 years.
So you, Tory Irish will be on the Romani media watch black list if you don't read the links below learn about Romanies and apologise to the Romani people for your absolutely discriminative racist article.

I have to agree with Yvonne Slee. I'm also Sinti and we don't like being romanticized any more than we like being demonized. It's just two sides of the same "other" coin. And no "Gypsy" does not inherently mean "itinerant". The vast majority of Gypsies have not been nomadic for generations. In response to your comment about a Gypsy woman drugging her children; did you actually see her give her children tranquilizers? If you didn't, it sounds like you're ASSUMING. The situation in Italy is too close to Nazi Germany for my comfort and any non-psychopath would agree. Please educate yourself so that we don't have to.
