Girl, 12, Attacked by Classmate, for Wearing a Crucifix in Italy

(ANSA) Terni, Italy,

A schoolboy of African origin attacked a 12-year-old-girl at a school in central Italy because she was wearing a crucifix on a neck chain, police said Friday.

The boy punched the girl violently in the back at the entrance to a middle school in the town of Terni on Thursday and the girl’s mother caught the boy, who subsequently told Carabinieri paramilitary police he attacked the girl because she was wearing a crucifix, police sources said.

The boy, who first attended the school some three weeks ago, had bullied the girl over the past four days, insulting her and picking on her in other ways all because she was wearing the crucifix, the sources said. Nevertheless police stopped short of charging the boy with any offense since he is a minor, the sources said.

Just a couple days ago an annual parade in a small town in Northern Italy was harassed by a group of Muslim school boys who assumed that the parade was an affront to them. They were made to apologize and were disciplined.

Nevertheless, these two events reveal a completely intolerant attitude among young Muslims. I have reported before that the younger generation of Muslims in Europe are more aggressively Muslim than their parents. 

They reveal how quickly and easily Muslims can be incited to violence, especially younger ones.

In my recent post - Islam Will Conquer the West, All of It the video link shows Muslims claiming that Italy will be the first European country to fall to Islam. It seems to be on its way. 

If you can't be a Catholic openly in Italy, where can you be?
