Mahommed Cartoons and the Northern League

The Northern League, the separatist party of the North of Italy, is campaigning with a series of T-shirts parading the (in)famous Mahommed cartoons.

This is a very unfortunate and serious mistake. They obviously underline once more their vulgar and violent way of doing politics; worse, they give further visibility to pooly crafted cartoons with the only intent of attracting attention.

This is the kind of allies that the right wing coalition managed to enlist. Add to that the neo-fascist party led by Alessandra Mussolini, niece of Benito, and you probably understand why the present government constitutes a threat to democracy in Italy, and this not only because of the leader of that coalition.
