Rome, 19 September. (Adnkronos) – “ ‘I’ll cut your throat’, ‘I’ll stab you’, ‘die’, ‘you and Salvini must die’, ‘you’re worth burning’, ‘I’ll kill you’, ‘I’d suffocate you’, ‘explode’ , ‘I’ll break your face’, ‘it’s going to end badly for you’, ‘you disgusting bitch you have to die’ and then threats to my children ‘if I catch him there’ll be problems’, ‘I hope to catch him on the street’ and more delusions like ‘or you’ll become Muslims like us or there will be no place for you’ and the inevitable ‘allah akbar’. The reason? My speech in Strasbourg in the European Parliament last week with the ‘No to the Islamic headscarf’ t-shirt. My motivated firmness evidently bothered me. I receive dozens and dozens of messages of this nature from Muslim users on social media and via email, in Italian, Arabic and other languages.” This was reported by League MEP Silvia Sardone.
“For years – she adds – I have received threats, increasingly crude and serious, for my positions on illegal mosques and for my opposition to the Islamic veil. I have been reporting them to the competent bodies for years. I want to be clear: I will continue to express my ideas and opinions in Italy and in the institutions in which I am elected, with my head held high and without fear. I will continue to say that the European Union must not promote the Islamic headscarf in its communications as an instrument of freedom and integration because I instead consider it an instrument of submission for women. I will continue to fight for the many women who want to be free and not oppressed for religious reasons. I will continue to denounce the growing Islamization of Europe, the spread of Muslim ghettos and Islamic courts that want to impose sharia. I will continue to report the worrying setback on our identity and our culture. I will continue to denounce the danger of illegal Islamic centers in our territory where the funding and what is preached are unclear.”
“I will continue to reiterate – concludes Sardone – that Europe must not renounce our values and human rights so as not to offend Islamic communities. These threats, for the umpteenth time, will not bend me. In the face of an Islam that is taking up space in Europe, opposition is more than ever a duty.”
