Berlusconi for President ’08

Too bad it can’t happen. He seems like the type of guy that wouldn’t put up with islamocrat lefties sympathizing with the enemies. I mean, he came out and said western culture is superior to that of islam.

The West is morally better than the Islamic world and will prevail, eventually. That in a nutshell is what Italian Prime M Silvio Berlusconi said while on a visit to the German capital Berlin. He made these comments in a conversation with journalists just before a press conference with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. Berlusconi literally said: We must be aware of the superiority of our civilisation, a system that has guaranteed well-being, respect for human rights and – in contrast with Islamic countries – respect for religious and political rights.”

The Western civilisation is superior, Mr Berlusconi added, because “it has at its core – as its greatest value – freedom, which is not the heritage of Islamic culture”. The Italian prime minister predicted that “the West will continue to conquer peoples, even if it means a confrontation with another civilisation, Islam, firmly entrenched where it was 1400 years ago”.
