This is not the first time, IIRC. I thought there was a plot/threat in 2001-2002 too. Ah here’s one: “After a bomb was found among the steeples of the Cathedral in Milan, vigilance has been strengthened for fear of an attack 20 December 2000 by Giovanni Paplato” http://www.endex.com/gf/buildings/ltpisa/ltpnews/2000/ltpitln122000.htm and 2004: “ Wednesday, 25 February, 2004, 20:04 GMT Terror suspects arrested in Italy

Milan’s Duomo cathedral may have been a terrorist target, reports say Italian police have arrested three North Africans suspected of plotting to bomb Milan’s metro and a cathedral in the north of the country.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/3487162.stm

They hate figurative art, Christianity and Europe, This cathedral is one of the most beautiful & famous in the world. It will be a dark day when Muslims rule Europe, and it looks like it will happen, given immigration and demographics. They dont even have to be a majority. Just large enough they can threaten with ease, and I’m excluding “ordinary” terror here. They have taken over neighborhoods, cities and at least one nation.

Islam: Why does this word keep coming up when terror cells are mentioned?

Bigotted western reporters, those few right-wing scribes and cableTV jockies, you know.

My policy would be this:

If you destroy a church/cathedral we destroy two mosques.

I wonder if the U.S, Israel or India will be the one to smash that Rubiks cube with the pet rock in it?

"Milan's Duomo is the second largest Catholic cathedral in the world: only the cathedral of Seville is larger (St. Peter's Basilica in Rome doesn't count because it's not a cathedral). It is 157 meters long— 40,000 people can fit comfortably within."

Of the top of your head, you don't know the great cathedrals of Europe.

Maybe. I’ve only been there seven or eight times. And hung over.

"It will make a nice mosque."

Yeah, once they pull down all those statues, many of which are structurally integral, physically carved from supporting walls and turrets.

Won't be the first time. I remember seeing a Cathedral in --- I think it was Alkmaar, Holland? ---- where hundreds of statues of saints were pulled down and smashed -- by Calvinists.

These thrifty folk didn't want to spend the money for scaffolds to get up to the higher tiers and pull down the ones near the roof, so they left them there. Turned the church into a cheese warehouse. The 16th century: not the best of times.
