Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi appears to be making good on his promise to deal with crime and immigration, launching a nationwide police sweep just weeks after taking office.
Yet critics say they are worried it will target people who legally live and work in Italy.
Frustration with illegal immigrants turned to rage last week when an angry mob attacked a Roma gypsy camp outside of Naples.
In Europe, kidnapping children was considered legal for most of 1500AD-1750AD. On one condition - you had to kidnap Roma Gypsy children! More than 25,000 children kidnapped. No problem. Everybody sleeps peacefully at night. Switzerland was doing this till 1973!
Roughly, between 1500 to 1750, it was legal in Europe to hunt human beings. Yes! Just like hunting for deer in India, or hunting buffalo in Africa or fox-hunting in Britain. Yes! You could hunt human beings. As long as the humans you hunted were Roma Gypsies.
On 16 September 1986, as Elie Wiesel addressed a wide range of audience in his Nobel Peace Prize speech, he stated "I confess that I feel somewhat guilty towards our Roma friends. We have not done enough to listen to your voice of anguish. We have not done enough to make other people listen to your voice of sadness. I can promise you we shall do whatever we can from now on to listen better" (Tanner 1997). Elie Wiesel confirms that he feels only somewhat guilty and will do his best to listen - just like Europe and the world does once in a while and complete indifference rest of the time.
Roma Gypsies are Indians
The Roma Gypsies came to Europe 1000 years ago, from India - and are till today considered outsiders. They are not allowed to lead their lifestyle - and the Gypsy community is accused of all misdeeds. It is the same Gypsies who civilized Eurpe with their music. Today, the West desperately hides the fact that Western classical music was derived and grew from Gypsy music.
