Isto é perseguição religiosa: eles estão apenas a cumprir os preceitos do islão: querem castigar os que colaboraram na apostasia de um muçulmano. Tudo normal, na perspectiva muçulmana. Incitam os muçulmanos a não se integrarem na sociedade italiana: tudo normal: o que os muçulmanos devem fazer não é transformar-se em muçulmanos ocidentais, mas sim transformar o Ocidente no islão ocidental.
Enfim: há que ler sobre o islão para perceber que estes homens não são extremistas, mas zelosos muçulmanos.
ROME (AP) - Italian police on Friday arrested six Moroccan men suspected of inciting hatred against Pope Benedict XVI for converting a Muslim journalist in Italy to Catholicism.
Stefano Fonsi, head of Brescia police's anti-terrorism squad in northern Italy, said the suspects allegedly banded together and met privately with the goal of stirring up religious hatred against non-Muslims, including the pope.
The investigation grew out of security checks ahead of a pastoral visit by Benedict to Brescia in 2009, but authorities insisted that their probe revealed no plot against the pontiff or other terrorism aims.
Brescia Prosecutor Fabio Salmone said there was "absolutely no" indication that the group had attacks in mind. "I rule that out," he told reporters. "There wasn't even a plan" to organize attacks, he said.
In 2008, Egyptian-born journalist Magdi Allam angered some Muslims by becoming a Catholic. After being baptized, he changed his name to Magdi Cristiano Allam. He had built a career in Italy as a newspaper commentator and author attacking Islamic extremism and supporting Israel.
