There is less Islamist radicalization in Italy than other countries, Premier Paolo Gentiloni said after meeting Italy’s commission on radicalization Thursday. The commission on Islamist radicalisation has found that “radicalization paths develop above all in certain places, in jail and on the Web, more than in other places that we may have followed a lot in the last years or decades”. He said “we must work on jails and on the Web, for prevention”.
We must say no to those who equate immigration with terrorism, Gentiloni said. He said the government’s aim was to combine reception policies with “rigour” in repatriations. Lorenzo Vidoni, chair of the commission on radicalisation, said that in Italy “there are a growing number of women and minors being radicalised”.
So, in other words, Gentiloni is saying not to blame immigration on radicalization. That they do not come to Italy as radicals but once there they are radicalized in prisons. Why are they in prisons…what crimes have they committed before radicalization and isn’t that enough to warrant keeping them out.
Gentiloni is another political leftist who is simply giving lip service to wanting to tackle the refugee problem. By his very words he has admitted that the problem is two fold: these people are committing crimes and a percentage are becoming radicalized. Why does Italy have to take this chance. What kind of a government does not take care of it’s people first.
Obviously, the Gentiloni regime will be business as usual for Italy.
