    Italians this week cheered the electoral defeat of a mayor who signed a deal with George Soros to turn the tiny island of Lampedusa into a gateway to Europe for migrants travelling from Africa. “Thank you, you have eradicated the Lampedusa cancer,” read graffiti sprayed across walls on several streets of the small island with just 6,000 residents after voters ousted Mayor Giusi Nicolini.

    Italian defence group Leonardo SpA on Sunday unveiled the new fighter attack version of its M-346 advanced trainer, saying many air forces had already expressed interest in the planes, especially in Asia and South America. Leonardo, which presented the new fighter variant at the Paris Air Show, said the M-346 fighter would be equipped with the Grifo multi-mode fire control radar, also built by Leonardo. It said the new fighter was designed to help different air forces meet their needs rapidly by building on a common base. "The M-346FA is of interest to many international customers, specifically in the Far...

    The Military Ordinariate in Italy, which is immediately subject to the Holy See, "allows" Communion for remarried divorcees in direct contradiction to the New Testament and Catholic doctrine. This break with the Faith of the Church is sanctioned in a guideline, published by the Ordinariate. It contains an introduction by pro-gay and pro-divorce Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, the president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts.

The operations took place amid a brewing conflict between the Libyan Navy and various NGOs. On Sunday, the Navy announced it had driven a number of NGO vessels out of Libya’s territorial waters and...

    Crammed on to a ship with a normal capacity of 600, almost 1,500 migrants arrive in Italy after being rescued from rickety vessels in the Mediterranean. Their nightmare ended as they landed in Naples yesterday after being forced to endure an extra two days on board because of the G7 summit in Sicily. The nearest port to where they were picked up was on the island, but the vessel was not allowed to dock there because of the tight security in place for the meeting of world leaders. ** Last week a leaked intelligence report said 6.6million are waiting to...

    AVOLA, Sicily — It was a far cry from the rotting fishing boats and overstuffed dinghies that carry so many thousands of migrants precariously to Italian shores. The family of six had paid about $96,000 (all figures US) to travel from Afghanistan to Turkey. The last leg of their journey, a cramped week's sail through the Aegean and Mediterranean seas aboard a cerulean 50-foot yacht, the Polina, piloted by three Ukrainian skippers, cost $7,000 a head. It dropped them in Sicily in relative style. As migrants go, this was luxury class. It was not the first time that Carlo Parini,...

  • Where to Buy Michelle Obama’s Trendy One-Shoulder Top (Barf alert - she's vacationing in Italy)

    The ever-polished Michelle Obama stepped out this weekend in Montalcino, Italy, and gave us the best inspiration for a vacation style to steal for the summer. The former First Lady wore a pink one-shoulder shirt from Teija, a Finnish designer who trained under Christoper Bailey at Burberry before creating her own label. The shirt added a playful note to Michelle’s post–White House wardrobe, which has largely consisted of tea-length dresses and cashmere cardigans. She complemented the look with cropped white jeans, simple flat sandals, and gold hoops. This chic top is the perfect piece to wear all summer: It...
  • Europe's Leaders: Shielding Themselves from Reality

    Gatestone Institute ^ | May 23, 2017 | Judith Bergman
    Shielding heads of state from seeing the consequences of the policies that they themselves have forced on the entire European continent represents a staggering new level of hypocrisy. Why do the citizens of Europe need to 'broaden their horizons,' while the people in power protect themselves from the reality they themselves imposed on everyone else? This attitude, far from democratic, borders on the atmosphere prevalent in Europe during the bygone days of Europe's absolute monarchs. While it is true that "everyone knows about our prosperity and lifestyle," the answer to that problem is not fatalistically to sit back and wait...

    The Obamas were spotted touring the city of Siena, Tuscany on Monday but it was the former first lady who grabbed everyone’s attention with her wardrobe. Michelle Obama’s off-duty look has apparently gone off the shoulder as she bared plenty of skin in a white strappy top with high-waisted pants. Her husband opted for a more polished shirt and pants as the couple stepped out of the Duomo di Siena, the Siena Cathedral, the Daily Mail reported.

    Italy’s Court of Cassation ruled on Monday that a Sikh man was not allowed to carry a knife considered sacred by his religion in public. Migrants have a duty to conform to local values in the society they choose to move to, the court said, even if those values are different from in their home country. The kirpan, a small knife or sword, is one of five religious articles many Sikhs carry with them at all times. But the legality of carrying the curved knife in public has been debated in several countries where Sikhs are a minority. Denmark became...

    The Italian government on Thursday dissolved four town councils due to evidence of mafia infiltration. The affected towns were Laureana di Borrello, Bova Marina, and Gioia Taura, all located in Reggio Calabria at the toe of Italy’s boot, as well as San Felice a Cancello in Caserta, Campania. […] Government-appointed commissions will take over council duties, the ministry said, and local elections scheduled for June 11th will no longer take place in two of the Sicilian towns. […] In 2016, the government disbanded the local council of Corleone because of suspected mafia infiltration of the Sicilian town which helped inspire...

    Europe’s establishment breathed a sigh of relief after the pro-European Union centrist Emmanuel Macron was elected French president this week. But another populist storm is brewing in Italy, where the euroskeptic 5 Star Movement has remained strong. Fueled by discontent with slow growth, high unemployment and disillusionment with mainstream politicians, 5-Star has won local elections in Rome, Turin and elsewhere, partly on the strength of its leaders’ call for a referendum on Italy’s use of the European single currency. Pollsters say about 30% of Italian voters support the movement founded by comedian Beppe Grillo, a level of popularity that has...
