Italy: Prime Minister resigns, blasts anti-mass Muslim migration Salvini, government collapses

The Italian government has collapsed following Salvini’s pulling his support from the government. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte resigned as he was set to face a vote of no confidence brought about by Matteo Salvini’s Lega Party.

At the center of the rise of “populist” movements in Europe has been the hijrah and Islamic supremacist incursions.

Conte blasted Salvini, accusing the Interior Minister of “political opportunism,” and “slammed Salvini for various issues including his use of religious symbols, a critique often deployed by members of the Roman Catholic clergy hostile to Salvini’s anti-mass migration policies.” Meanwhile, that is exactly what the Pope of Islam has been doing in counseling the Catholic flock to fling open Europe’s doors to unrestricted mass immigration, because in his view, it is the Christian thing to do. And the Pope’s views are not without opposition within the Church. Cardinal Robert Sarah — prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments — compared “the modern influx of Muslim migrants to the invasions of barbarian tribes that ultimately brought down the Roman Empire in a.d. 475.” Sarah also issued a warning about Muslim migration and the subsequent destruction of Europe, and cautioned that “it is a false exegesis [interpretation of scriptural text] to use the Word of God to promote migration. God never wanted these rifts.” This is exactly what Pope Francis has been doing for quite some time, while the Vatican remains walled up, and the Pope remains surrounded by security.

Salvini stands firm and unapologetic about defending Europe’s tradition and Christian identity, which is rooted in the principles of human rights for all, equality before the law, and individual freedom. Salvini has made specific reference to defending Europe from an “Islamic caliphate,” stating:

For our children, to leave behind an Islamic caliphate with sharia law in our cities is not something I want to do and I’m going to do everything in my power to avert this sad ending for Europe.

Now that the Italian government has collapsed, the next steps are up to Italian president Sergio Mattarella, where he will either call an election or form another coalition. Lega Senate leader Massimiliano Romeo has warned that should the Lega party be forced out of the Italian government, Italy would be “harmed…. lose sovereignty. And we would return under the thumb of Merkel.”

“Italian PM Resigns, Attacks Populist Salvini As Government Collapses,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart,

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has resigned, forcing the collapse of the populist coalition between the Five Star Movement and Matteo Salvini’s Populist-right Lega (League).
The Italian PM was set to face a vote of no confidence brought by Salvini’s party after the Five Star Movement overwhelmingly opposed a recent vote on the Italian-French TAV train tunnel project.

On the floor of the Italian senate, Mr Conte blasted Salvini, accusing the Interior Minister of “political opportunism,” according to a report from Italian newspaper Il Giornale.

“Government crises are faced in Parliament, not in the public squares,” Conte continued and slammed Salvini for various issues including his use of religious symbols, a critique often deployed by members of the Roman Catholic clergy hostile to Salvini’s anti-mass migration policies.

While he announced his resignation as Prime Minister, Conte said that he hoped Italian President Sergio Mattarrella would not choose to hold a snap election, saying it could block current reforms.

“I announce that I intend to complete this institutional step in a coherent manner. The President of the Republic will lead the country in this constitutional passage. I take this opportunity to renew my thanks for the advice he has always given me,” Conte said.

The decision on the way forward for the Italian parliament now rests with the Italian President who, along with being able to call new elections, could call on the Five Star Movement (M5S) to form another working coalition.

Some have suggested that the M5S could partner with the establishment left-wing Democratic Party (PD) but others, such as Lega Senate leader Massimiliano Romeo, say that such a move would only help funnel even more votes to Salvini’s party…..
