Italian Senate Blocks Islamic ‘Adoption Jihad’

The Italian Senate has ratified the Hague Convention for the protection of foreign minors but rejected the application of its Sharia adoption provisions, which envision the application of Islamic law regarding guardianship of minors.

“This remains the most serious attempt to accept and introduce principles of Islamic obscurantism into Italian law,” said Senator Maurizio Gasparri, president of il Popolo della Libertà. “It is disgraceful that someone is trying to impose subservience to Islam by welcoming these uncivilized laws.”
