What Italy just did ‘out of respect’ for Islam will make you SICK…
As we reported earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is on his European victory tour in the wake of the landmark nuclear deal. With long-standing sanctions from Europe lifted as part of the deal, the Iranian leader is making his rounds to capitalize on billions of dollars in new business opportunities. Newsweek reported Italian officials said Rouhani signed contracts worth up to $18.4 billion on Monday.
Col. West wrote of the Rouhani’s trip that:
What we’re witnessing is described as dhimmitude, submission, and it will have a lasting effect, long after Obama has left office for the speaking tour…which I’m sure will find its way to Tehran.
And in addition to multi-billion dollar deals, there was another highly disturbing form of dhimmitude on display during the Iranian leader’s visit to Italy. In fact, in terms of symbolism, in some ways this is even more disturbing. It sent chills up my spine.
As the Telegraph reports:
Italy covered up marble statues of nude Roman goddesses in order to spare the blushes of the visiting president of Iran, who is on a visit to Europe to rebuild relations with the West after the recent deal on restricting its nuclear ambitions lifted years of economic sanctions.
With Italian businesses signing deals worth around 17 billion euros with Iranian companies, much was at stake and Rome was anxious not to offend the sensibilities of Hassan Rouhani.But the decision to encase the statues of Venus and other female figures from antiquity prompted outrage from some commentators and politicians.
