Milan will be 'Islamised' if leftist mayor elected, warns Berlusconi
http://www.adnkronos.com/IGN/Aki/English/Religion/Italy-Milan-will-be-Islamised-if-leftist-mayor-elected-warns-Berlusconi_312048604921.html

Days ahead of a key run-off vote for mayor of Milan, Italy's prime minister Silvio Berlusconi warned the opposition centre-left would turn his hometown into an "Islamic" city overrun by Roma Gypsies and other immigrants.

"Milan can't become, on the eve of the Expo 2015, an Islamic city, a city of Gypsies, full of Roma camps and swamped by foreigners, a city that gives voting rights to immigrants in municipal elections," Berlusconi said on Monday.

"I don't think that we Milanese consider it a priority to build a beautiful mosque," Berlusconi said in a message posted to the website of his ruling conservative People of Freedom (PdL) party.

The leader of Italy's largest centre-left opposition Democratic Party Pierluigi Bersani met Berlusconi's inflammatory remarks with an ironic putdown. "Your words are laughable..you're going to need to wear a burqa to avoid people recognising you in the street," he jibed.



Ol' Berlusconi keeps working that anti-immigrant, anti-diversity card. I guess he has to keep his coalition buddies in the far-right Northern League happy.

2. So... what does he plan to do about it?
How is he keeping the Muslims out? What is it he's doing that the left-wing wouldn't do to meet this horrifyingly racist goal of reducing the Muslim population?
