Italy creating ‘Italian Islam’ by making new religion in line with ‘Christian tradition’

Italy is setting up a council of “Italian Islam” that claims to be bringing the religion into compliance with the country’s “Christian and humanist tradition”.

The reason for the controversial creation was not made clear in a statement by interior minister Angelino Alfano, although he did say provinces “concerned with immigration” would be involved.

Announcing the move on Tuesday, he said the Council of Relations with Italian Islam would be an advisory body aiming at furthering integration.

    How naive! When Islam arrives into a nation it doesn’t not adapt to the host culture instead when it grows in large numbers it assimilates the host culture into the vast Islamic collective. The Arabs are a prime example since their is no distinctive difference between a Moroccan, Algerian, Egyptian, Syrian or Saudi Arabian. Once these nations had distinctive and separate cultures and even languages however when Islam took over these nations became virtually indistinguishable. Or even to a greater degree there is no such thing as a Palestinian in the sense that most Jordanians are so called Palestinian.

    One idea for integrating Muslim immigrants into Italian culture would be to change the system of murdering innocent people. Currently Muslims murder people using various bombs and Kalashnikov machine guns. Italians could integrate Muslims more fully into domestic culture by teaching them the Sicilian mafia forms of murder: 22-cal pistols, garroting, and the like.

    • Ha! Actually what they’re doing looks something like “syncretism”. The RC’s tried it back in the colonial days with some of the Indigenous religions in Latin America. It more or less worked out (although you ended up with a bastardized version of both religions). Would be quite a bizarre approach today. And with political Islam I’m not sure you’re dealing with something purely theological in nature. Hence government involvement? Leave it to the Italians to come up with bizarre new inventions (Leonardo Da Vinci)!

          German women could start up a business to make Underwear that has a combo of Silk and a Pigskin waist band and patches on them .
          The muslim quranimal RapeFugees will rue the day they sexually assaulted those infidel women and touched pig skin to cancel out any express elevator to paradise even by Jihad suicide.
          Market anti- rape items such as pigskin Jackets,hats or coin holders that a muslim would have to touch if they assault a women .
          I doubt Merkel can , or will, get these muslim men to stop following the quran and treat infidel women as equals to STOP the rapes .

    That phrase “controversial creation” made me think of Frankenstein for some reason. I don’t know why…
