The Terrorism Threat: No opening to Islam, Statement by the Northern League

12 June 2013


“The arrest of Anas El Abboubi is yet another demonstration that Islamic extremism has taken root and is a looming threat. Radicalism is increasingly widespread among those who grew up in our country; even though they apparently seem to have accepted our rules of civil coexistence. While the policy underestimates phenomena of this kind that could cause disastrous consequences for our security and our future, despite the scarcity of resources, we thank the police station in Brescia who were able to intervene. The fear is that their work will soon be resized and disheartened by the government’s next steps on immigration, security and justice.” Said a statement by the provincial secretary of the Northern League Fabio Rolfi and the communications manager of the Northern League David Caparini.
