Terrorism. Threatened journalists of roman daily Il Tempo
In a phone tap they are defined as “miscreants that Allah, sooner or later, will hit and destroy.” Chiocci’s column. Solidarity from MPs
Miscreant journalists that Allah, sooner or later, will hit and destroy “in this life or the next”. With these words, an Italian ISIS convert, in a phone tapping, speaks of the journalists of the newspaper “Il Tempo” in Rome, who reacted by making known to have suffered numerous other threats in the past two years, some received in writing, others by phone calls which can be traced back to exponents of Islamic fundamentalism who live in Italy, and of having “binned them”.
The mnews was given by the known journalist Gian Marco Chiocci, editor of the newspaper, through a column published on Friday, July 3rd, 2015 on the front page with the headline “The more they threaten the more we’ll push forward.”
The news was given by the known journalist Gian Marco Chiocci, editor of the newspaper, through a column published on Friday, July 3rd, 2015 on the front page with the headline “The more they threaten the more we’ll push forward.” Chiocci provides an overview of the inquiries and the scoops of his newspaper, many of which relate to “Muslim radicalism” at home, and confirms the will to continue on the same path without listening to the calls for prudence. Specifically, he refers to the threatening words contained in a phone tap attached to a recent court order.
After the publication of the column, some MPs, of which among others: Mara Carfagna, Deborah Bergamini, Maurizio Gasparri and Lucio Malan (FI), Fabrizio Cicchitto (NCD), Giuseppe Esposito (NCD-UDC), Simone Valiante (PD) – have expressed solidarity with the editor and his journalists.
“We are not afraid and we are not reckless. We do not want police protection – Chiocci wrote – and we go hunting for news. We dig, we find, we write. Fearlessly. As in the case of Fatima (née Maria Giulia), who began flirting with ISIS and was tracked down by Il Tempo who first told her story of a convert to Islam and to the blood-lusting cause of the al-Bagdhadi. In the phone taps attached to the ordinances from before yesterday, it is possible to hear Fatima rail against those who (Il Tempo) told her story three days after the infamous massacre at Charlie Hebdo. She defines us as miscreant journalists who Allah, sooner or later, will hit and destroy ‘in this life and the next.’ The latest demonstration that we have hit the mark”.
