Italian Justice Minister Roberto Castelli understands February 24, 2006

From Clarity and Resolve:

I wonder if Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will also ask his Justice minister to step down for offending Islamosupremacist sensibilities.

(AGI) – Rome, Feb. 23 – “I am convinced that today Islamic extremist terrorism is a threat to our civilization on a par with that of Nazism”. These were the words of Justice minister Roberto Castelli on ‘Radio anch’io’.

“The matter is that of understanding”, Castelli said, “what road to take: that of the surrender, or even of complicity as the left has chosen, or the path of claiming our values, the right to our freedom”. For the Justice minister, “it is clear that the defence of values brings with it sacrifices”. Of course, there is the need for “caution and responsibility”, but “we are dealing with the clarification inside the CDL of where caution and responsibility become surrender”.

Castelli stressed that the problem to be faced isn’t only of a political nature, but also of a historical one, and compared the current situation with that of Europe at the end of the nineteen thirties, “when it was a case of dealing with the extremely serious threat of Nazism”.

The Islamic threat to Europe is indeed on a par with Nazism, and is actually more severe due to its insidiousness and its alliance with the leftocratic bloc so prevalent in European states.

The Justice Minister is correct – it is a matter of understanding.  Not as the left would whine, “But we have to understand the cultural differences and not offend …”.  No, this is understanding, as he said, what road to take – Surrender or Freedom.  That’s what this boils down to at its core. 

Very simple choice.

Australia’s Treasurer Peter Costello gets it too.

How does one reach Minister Roberto Castelli in order to do school project? My son Santino was interested in writing a story about his life.
