Former hostage in Iraq to run in elections to ‘defend Christian identity’

Salvatore Stefio, a former hostage in Iraq, plans to run in Italy’s upcoming elections on April 13th and 14th under the right wing La Destra party to defend Christian Identity. Stefio was one of four Italians abducted near Baghdad in 2004 while working as a security guard. “I am with La Destra to reaffirm the right to defend the Christian identity and civilisation against the threat of Islamic fundamentalism” said Stefio. He is planning on leaving the post-fascist Alleanza Nazionale party run by Gianfranco Fino, whom Stefio says has strayed with their intent on bringing the Quran into schools and letting Muslim citizens run in the country’s elections.
