The following video shows a recent incident in Naples. A detachment of soldiers was in the process of controlling (stopping and checking) an immigrant, when suddenly they were surrounded by dozens of hooting youths. It’s not clear what caused the culture-enriching mob to finally disperse. Fortunately, there were no casualties.
Collectively speaking, this was a probe of the Italian security forces, and through them, the Italian state. Without central direction or planning, the migrants are testing the authorities, assessing their strength in order to determine the moment when it will become possible to overwhelm the soldiers and incapacitate them, thus turning the surrounding neighborhood into a no-go zone under Muslim control.
Naples: 30 Immigrants surround 5 soldiers to impede a stop
A short distance from the Naples Central Train Station, 30 attack the soldiers who were checking a man.
“Abandoned and betrayed”. That is how the inhabitants of the Vasto di Napoli quarter feel, who have published a video on Facebook to complain about yet another episode of violence on the part of foreigners, this time even at the expense of soldiers.
In the video (see), in the center of Via Firenze close to the station, a patrol of five soldiers, armed and tasked with Operation Safe Streets, are searching a man, on the ground, to check him out. Some foreigners come running from the right, then back off. Others arrive from the left. The soldiers, already surrounded, try to keep calm, but suddenly chaos is triggered. Shouting, shoving; someone tries to free the detained man. Then a young man in a green t-shirt intervenes, saying something that causes the thirty immigrants in revolt to disperse.
“Episodes like this occur every day in our quarter, and everybody pretends not to see,” complains the Committee of Vasco Quarter. “We feel alone and abandoned… We fear for ourselves and for our families! Enough now! Aggression even against the State.”
