The anti-immigration Northern League party - political allies of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi - is piloting a bill through parliament to impose strict regulations that will effectively block the construction of nearly all mosques.

Estimating that permission for a new mosque or prayer hall is granted somewhere in the centre of world Catholicism every four days, Northern League parliamentarian Andrea Gibelli said: 'I consider this to be an unfettered colonisation of our culture.'

Mr Gibelli, the author of the bill, said mosques discourage integration and 'are often places of cultural indoctrination, sometimes linked to international terrorism'.

The League has already used its control of Berlusconi’s interior ministry to push through tough new laws against illegal immigrants - even introducing a state of emergency in Italy.

The League’s anti-Muslim protests have often made headlines, such as when Roberto Calderoli, now a cabinet minister, walked his pet pig on a proposed mosque site to defile the soil.

The League bill would ban mosques from being built within a half a mile of a church, oblige imams to speak Italian, link the size of the mosque to the number of the congregation and forbid muezzins from using loudspeakers to call the faithful to prayer.

It will ban minarets and, crucially, give the final word to local residents via a referendum - which would effectively mean no new mosques in League-dominated areas of the north.

Comment
This will certainly not be to the liking of the New World Order. Here is a comment from the economical criminal member of the US Council on Foreign Relations and founder of the European council on Foreign relations, George Soros:

EUObserver 17 Sept. 2008: "Billionaire philanthropist and financier George Soros has said at a top-level EU conference on the problems facing Roma people in Europe that he supports legal action against Italy over recent anti-Gypsy measures, particularly the fingerprinting of adults and children.

Certainly, fingerprinting, racial profiling and so on is unacceptable and, I believe, illegal, and I hope that the European Court of Justice will take up the case and declare it illegal," the Hungarian-born founder of the Open Society Institute said on Tuesday (16 September) in a press conference at the first "European Roma Summit" in Brussels, an event jointly organised by the European Commission and the Soros foundation.

And his illuminist (explanatory statement) colleague, José Barroso, president of the EU Commission, supported his view.
Of course. For a man/organisation is recognised by his/its partners.
