Posted on 10/22/2010 1:10:04 PM PDT by Nachum
Jewish Italian MP Fiamma Nirenstein was reconfirmed this week as Vice President of Italys Foreign Affairs Committee. In addition, she was also appointed an official consultant on Israel and the international Jewish communities by Italian Foreign Minister Frattini.
Earlier this week, Nirenstein commented on Christian leaders who criticize Israel yet ignore violence by Arabs. She pointed out that Islam does not like Eastern Christians: it has forced them to flee and now they account for only 6% of the population in the Mideast, and added that the only country where the number of Christians has grown is Israel, where 163,000 Christians live today, a number which is expected to grow to 187,000 by the year 2020. In Muslim countries, on the other hand, Christians are on the wane, but the 50 churches present in the Holy Land seem not to notice. They prefer to dump on Israel, where they enjoy full freedom of worship and expression, said Nirenstein.

Wow, these Europeans are quick thinkers.
Islam is also the greatest failure of religions and theocracy. It is the number one breeder and perveyor of hate. Has it made anyones lives better? Where are the inventions and innovations? Where are the benefits? All the hate has generated is a new way to blow up themselves and others. Too bad they have to include the “others”
The fact that they are even saying this says something about them. When was the last time one of elected officials made an official statement. Certainly not Hildebeast.
I know I know she is not elected, but you know what I mean. So flame not.
Where’s that pic of Captain Obvious
I wonder what her first clue was?...................
"Son, THAT is NOT news. THIS is the news."
Noooooooooo?!! (In Andy Kaufman's Latka voice)
Did they also know that:
Pope Remains Catholic
Bears Still Live in the Woods
Man-made Global Warming is a Hoax
Generalissimo Francisco Franco is Still Dead
Well, you have to give her credit for saying something - though it be obvious. PC thought is so entrenched in this Nation, as in most of the West - that facts can't be stated.
Juan Williams mutters some straightforward observations and he gets fired. So I give this Italian politician credit. It might be obvious - but she's bucking the PC gestapo to say it.
Italy’s MK Fiamma Nirenstein:”Islam Does Not Like Christians”
What a stupid comment. islam calls for the death of ALL Infidels so certainly Christians would be on that list.
People around this world better soon get a clue before it is too late!
Grazie, capitano ovvio.

It would be well to note that Italy's former outspoken and accomplished reporter, Orianna Fallaci, was one of the earliest cases of an outspoken opponent of Islamic takeover of Europe to be persecuted by Islamofascists. According to Wikipedia (link above),
"In 2002 ... the Islamic Center and the Somal Association of Geneva... sued Fallaci for the allegedly 'racist' content of [her book] The Rage and The Pride. [A] Swiss judge issued an arrest warrant... and requested the Italian government to either prosecute or extradite her. Italian Minister of Justice Roberto Castelli rejected the request on the grounds that the Constitution of Italy protects freedom of speech.
"In May 2005 ...the Union of Italian Muslims launched a lawsuit against Fallaci charging that 'some of the things she said in her book The Force of Reason are offensive to Islam' ... most notably a reference to Islam as 'a pool that never purifies.' ...Consequently an Italian judge ordered Fallaci to stand trial ...on charges of 'defaming Islam'... Fallaci accused the judge of having disregarded the fact that [president of the Union of Italian Muslims] had called for her murder and defamed Christianity.
"In France, some Arab-Muslim and anti-defamation organisations such as MRAP and Ligue des Droits de l'Homme launched lawsuits against Oriana Fallaci charging that The Rage and the Pride and The Force of Reason... were 'offensive to Islam' and 'racist.' "
Ms. Fallaci, who was approximately the equivalent of Barbara Walters in having access to and interviews with high-level world figures, endured these years of chilling legal battles over free speech while battling lung cancer. If I recall correctly, she died before these trials could take place.
Islam is to Chritianity as the Left’s notion of men as wife beaters is to women. The Islam problem is real and large, much more than the wife beaters.
THIS JUST IN:
NPR fires Fiamma Nirenstein!
Dang. With an attitude like that, she’s never going to get a gig on NPR.
You beat me!
So much for that NPR commentator post that was waiting for her ...
What’s that ... Captain Oblivious?
