Italy: New mosque ban in Padua after Paris attacks

The mayor of Padua has said that no more permits will be granted for the construction of mosques in the northern Italian city in the wake of the shooting at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine, in Paris on Wednesday.

Massimo Bitonci, a Northern League member who earlier this year said crucifixes must be hung on the walls of all schools and offices across the Veneto city, said in a tweet on Friday: “No to new mosques”.

The mayor was quoted in Corriere as saying that unlike in the past, “the council will not grant any more public space for the construction of mosques and Islamic places of worship.”

He added that controls on private establishments used for worship will also be tightened…

    NOW you’re talking!
    It may be small, but it’s a start; and I’ll support any politician that wants to do a similar thing here.
    Lessee just how dramatically the whining maggots react to this relatively mild response.

      These anti-immigrant types are winning local elections, as in mayors. Be interesting to see what happens now.

    If the Muslims don’t like it LEAVE Italy now!

    A sensible first step. Let’s see it implemented in all the west.

      Yes, a good first step. Step 2: Ban Islam. Step 3: Ban Muslims.

    I heard this the other day on some news station when driving and almost ran off the road laughing. In the news the mayor was described as an extremist and a xenophobe with the standard slant that banning the building of more mosques was just terrible. I don’t know which station it was, but it was not the CBC and certainly not a Muslim or multicultural station. That shows how wide spread the sickness is within our MSM.

    We need many politicians in Canada like this, at the municipal, provincial, and even federal level! No more mosques! No more Muslim immigrants! No more Jihad!

    Far be it from me to throw cold water on this story but it’s a politician stating that. How often has a politician said one thing and then go about doing the exact opposite. I don’t like to say that politicians can’t be trusted but I’d rather buy a used car from achmed the dead terrorist then trust a politician. Or a muslim. Well, other then achmed.
    Wouldn’t it be really great if no more mosques were built anywhere in the west and the one’s out there would all implode. During prayer time……
