While they don’t give the ethnicity of the rest of the students, we must assume they are mostly Muslims, as Islam is now the second largest religion in Italy.
In Italian schools now there are more and more foreign children. According to the most recent provisional data from the Ministry of National Education, there are 740,000 new foreigners registered in Italian schools for the new school year.
But in the “Four-leaf clover” primary school in Arcella, a district of Padua, a true record has been reached: of 66 kids, only one girl is Italian! A choice disputed by the mother of the girl who has denounced the disproportion and has criticised the educational policy of the institution.
According to The Morning of Padua, Eleonora Baccaro wrote to mayor Massimo Bitonci to get an exact response: “her protest is not linked to racial motives but to a concern that her culture cannot be oriented towards the Christian culture. A concern shared by all the teachers who regret the absence of linguistic and cultural mediators and denounced the difficulties in relations with the parents who don’t speak Italian either.”
According to the mother, the protest “is not based on racism or intolerance towards those who come here from far away.” The protest is “cultural and educational” in nature.
The mother says it is a question of “integration in reverse”, with her daughter forced to adopt to other cultures one way or the other, and to do without, for example, stories typical of the Christmas period.

AUSTRALIA: Gold Coast City Councillors have rejected a controversial mosque proposed for Currumbin Waters. Councillors voted 10 to 5 to scrap the application that had received a record number of objections in the lead up to today’s vote.
Gold Coast Bulletin
Currumbin-based city councillor Chris Robbins asked colleagues to refuse the mosque at today’s full council meeting. After a division was called, the vote was 10 councillors in support of Cr Robbins and five councillors against.
Those against her motion (and in support of the mosque) were Dawn Crichlow, Glenn Tozer, William Owen-Jones, Margaret Grummitt and Lex Bell. Those supporting her included Mayor Tom Tate and Deputy Mayor Donna Gates.
About 10 police officers were also there, after councillors Cameron Caldwell and William Owen-Jones received death threats for their support of the development.Another councillor, Chris Robbins, claimed she was threatened with gang rape and death from people opposed to the development via a social media website. Despite that, Cr Robbins led the call to reject the application, saying council had let down the community by not fully assessing the impact the development would have on them.
Residents have wildly celebrated the “win” outside the chamber, their cheers heard inside as councillors considered other planning matters. Cr Gates and Burleigh-based councillor Greg Betts spoke early to support the motion to refuse the application.
They were cheered by residents in a packed gallery. Many councillors who had publicly supported the mosque back-flipped and voted against it.
Both councillors Glenn Tozer and William Owen-Jones were unable to support Cr Robbins, given legal advice which suggested council would face an appeal from the mosque applicants.
Council had been asked to vote on a “material change of use” to allow Salsabil Charitable Organisation to convert a warehouse in an industrial estate at Currumbin into an Islamic place of worship.The plans for the 4768 square metre site triggered several protests from residents, some waving anti-Islamic signs, throughout the approvals process.A small number of anti-Islamic protesters gathered outside council chambers on Tuesday.
About 30 opponents of the planned mosque cheered and booed from the public gallery during Tuesday’s debate.Councillors from both sides of the debate expressed concern that the decision to refuse the application would result in a court appeal which could be costly for ratepayers.
A Gold Coast City councillor says she’s been threatened with gang-rape and death over a proposed mosque, and Facebook has been protecting the identity of her tormentors.
(Maybe they were threatening to kill her career? Or to show her what Muslims do to young white girls in the UK?)
Brisbane Times Chris Robbins says she has spent several weeks trying to get Facebook to reveal the identity of the creators of the “Stop the Mosque at Currumbin” page after it used a photo of her as its profile picture, claiming she was receiving money from unspecified Islamic backers, a claim she denies.
The photo was subsequently removed after Ms Robbins engaged a lawyer who threatened the social media website with defamation, but the page and user comments threatening her with violence remain. Ms Robbins said she was targeted by protesters after announcing council had received an application to build a mosque at an industrial site in Currumbin on the southern end of the Gold Coast.
“Horrific vilification, threatening all kinds of nastiness directed at me because I’d basically gone to the meeting and said council’s got an application for a mosque and we will be assessing it as we’re obliged to by law,” she said. “That essentially peeved some people who wanted me to stand up and say that at the end of the day this wouldn’t happen.”
Controversy over the proposed development has deepened after it received support at a council planning committee meeting on Wednesday. Queensland police are investigating after death threats were made against Cameron Caldwell and William Owen-Jones, two of the five councillors who approved the planning proposal.
The page published contact details for all five of the councillors after Wednesday’s meeting, calling them “traitors” and asking followers to contact them with their views.
Ms Robbins, who voted against the proposal on Wednesday, says the lack of accountability for the page’s authors is despicable and highlights how easily people can target victims through social media with little fear of consequences.
“I’m very upset that the social media platform has taken no responsibility,” she said. “If you want to make the people who posted to take responsibility for it, Facebook won’t tell you who they are. That’s what really peeves me because I would take legal action against those people for vilifying me. “I can’t take on Facebook. I don’t have the money to take on Facebook in the USA.
“Facebook is allowing those individuals to hide their identity and to vilify and libel and threaten people like me. That’s okay, I can handle it, but if I’m 15? This is a terrible thing.” (But you are NOT 15)
Ms Robbins, who believes there are some legitimate community concerns about the proposal, says a final decision on whether the mosque application gets approved will be judged on planning grounds and nothing else.
A group of radical young Islamic State supporters are now patrolling the streets of the German city Wuppertal. The ‘sharia police’ have been observed trying to stop Muslims from drinking, smoking, or gambling as well as harassing homosexuals and admonishing women for wearing short skirts or walking in public with a member of the opposite sex.
DW Police in Wuppertal are seeking ways to stop the group of men who have been seen patrolling the area around the western city’s main train station on several evenings recently. The bearded fundamentalists have declared the sleazy nightlife area of the city of 340,000 to be a “Sharia Controlled Zone.”
The young men, who are followers of Salafism, a puritanical form of Islam, walked around the area in orange traffic safety vests with the words “Sharia police” written in English on the back. They have also been observed distributing leaflets urging people to refrain from alcohol, drugs, gambling, attending concerts, watching pornography or visiting prostitutes.
Police stopped 11 men between the ages of 19 and 33 in Wuppertal on Wednesday night and they are now being investigated to see whether charges of illegal assembly could be brought against them.
