War of words erupts

Alessandra Mussolini hits back Libya


Dictator Mussolini’s granddaughter says Libyans would still be on 'camels' if it hadn't been for her grandfather.


ROME - Italian MEP Alessandra Mussolini stoked an increasingly bitter row with Libya on Friday, saying its people would still be riding camels if the country had not been occupied by fascist forces under her grandfather, dictator Benito Mussolini.

Mussolini was speaking after Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi threatened further attacks on Italians if Tripoli's compensation claim for decades of colonisation remained unheeded.

"If it hadn't been for my grandfather they would still be riding camels with turbans on their heads," said Mussolini, whose far-right political group has signed a pre-election pact with Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi ahead of April 9 polls.

"They are the ones who should be paying us compensation, because it was a positive colonisation. Fascism exported democracy, as well as roads, houses and schools," she said.

Relations between the two countries have dipped sharply after Libyan rioters razed the Italian consulate in Benghazi on February 17, ostensibly over an Italian minister wearing a T-shirt satirising the Prophet Mohammed.

Kadhafi said in a televised speech on Thursday that while the violence was regrettable, it was a result of the "accumulated wrongs since 1911, of repression and injustice suffered by the Libyan people under Italian occupation."

He called on Italy to "compensate the Libyan people for the deaths and refugees (of the colonial period), to avoid a (social) explosion against its interests, its companies and its nationals."

Italy had already occupied Libya for more than a decade before Mussolini came to power in 1922.

That's what everybody said about her grandfather. It was commonly said of him that "His brains made him Mussolini, but his lips made him Duce."

She is also still a fascist, just like her grandfather.

This is the pot calling the kettle black.

She is right that they exported a lot of their culture to the region; however, they did definitely not export democracy to the region.

On a side note: wouldn't it be actually better for us if they had never advanced farther than they were with our help; I wonder how much trouble a bunch of people with swords and camels as opposed to guns and cars could of caused?

I have family in Florence that still votes Fascisti. Before you condemn them, you should look at their party platform. They are their to combat the REAL Socialists and Communmists in government (These aren't pansies like the Dems here in the states, the left in Italy is truly destructive)

Like it or not, the Fascists help put Berlusconi in power. He's our strongest ally behind Blair.

Sorry, in my book fascists are way better than socialists, communists, or islamic theocratists....

You go girl, take Italy back...

I'd hit it hard enough to knock the Brownshirt right off of her.

I'd tear it up like Patton through the Afrika Korps.

The neighbors would think artillery was inbound.

Nice DSL's, too. I bet she could suck a rifle grenade through a Garand barrel.

Apparently Ms. Mussolini has a decent amount of nudie pics from her younger days.

Thank you, Google.
