Italy: EU Aid Should Be Tied To Christians’ Rights – FM

January 3, 2011 Stratfor:
EU aid should be reduced or eliminated for countries that do not protect Christian minorities, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said Jan. 3, ANSA reported. Twenty-one Coptic Christians were killed in Alexandria, Egypt, during a church bombing Jan. 1. Italy cannot stay “isolated” in the battle for Christians’ rights and must shift from monitoring to action, Frattini said. The European Union should work with and encourage countries that respect Christians’ rights, he said. Italy will present a resolution on religious freedom to the United Nations; the resolution is supported by the European Union, and several non-EU nations have expressed “great interest.”

  1. “Italy will present a resolution on religious freedom to the United Nations”

    I love the Italians but they haven’t got the memo yet with regard to the UN and Islam.

  2. Italy is also the only nation that doesn’t recognize Islam as a religion, they say until Saudi and other Moslem nations let other religions into their nations and let them be free to seek converts Islam will be banned in Italy. I wish other nations would do the same.
