Anyone who has been to Rome cannot help but be overwhelmed by the history you encounter at almost every turn. Much of Western civilization traces its origin back to this ancient city. While it was the center of great evil under certain emperors who will be remembered for their wickedness, the city has been an incredible center of culture, the arts, and learning for thousands of years.
Of course, Rome is not unique in this. Great centers integral to the development of Western culture are scattered throughout Europe, something those of us in America miss. Yet it is a fact that for the perpetuity of our culture, these cities must be defended.
And the threat to these cities is real. Rome has just been threatened with annihilation by ISIS. In response, the mayor of Rome wisely closed her city off to all immigration. That other Western leaders would have the wisdom and tenacity of this woman.
“Thanks to the reckless antics of globalist leaders across the world, terror groups like ISIS are quickly gaining momentum towards their goal of establishing a global Islamic Caliphate. We’ve seen the horrifying results of these barbarians infiltrating countries across Europe posed as refugees, as terror attacks are now becoming a daily occurrence in places like the U.K. and Germany, as they’re now setting their sights on other westernized countries. But one badass female politician in the form of Rome’s mayor is grabbing ISIS by the balls, in a brutal proclamation that has liberals losing their minds and the rest of us giving this brave woman a huge pat on the back.”
Lest there be any doubt about the seriousness of ISIS’ intentions to wage a religious war against Christians, the following excerpt should make their goals clear.
“Here’s an excerpt of their manifesto, where their chilling plan for the city and people of Rome is laid out:
“It will be broken and defeated, just as all your previous campaigns were broken and defeated, except that this time we will raid you thereafter, and you will never raid us. We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.”
It is just these sort of threats of unspeakable violence that prompted the Mayor of Rome, who clearly is a responsible public servant, to take strong action.
“Knowing that her city is on ISIS’ target as terrorism begins to rapidly escalate across Europe, the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, is now taking a page straight out of Trump’s playbook, calling for an immediate ban to be put in place to keep these Christian-hating vermin out of her country.
“In a truth-filled tirade to the Italian government, Raggi is demanding that the government immediately halts immigration to the city, calling for a ‘moratorium’ on immigrants to her city saying, ‘I find it impossible, as well as risky, to think up further accommodation structures.'”
Islamic extremists and their foolhardy enablers on the left might refer to Mayor Raggi’s actions as a “crusade” against Islam. It is precisely the opposite. It is not the invasion of any Muslim lands nor an attack on Islam, but represents a defensive act to prevent ISIS and their affiliated Islamic jihadists from committing mass murder and destruction in her city.
That’s her job. We congratulate her and sincerely hope other Western leaders will develop the wisdom, strength of character, and dedication to their people that she displays before it’s too late.
