|00:03||Hello, Minister. —I’m right here. Speaking of what happened in New Zealand,|
|00:06||don’t you think that in Italy the problem of right-wing-extremism is being underrated lately?|
|00:13||Also thinking of the Traini case, which you and others labeled as isolated case,|
|00:18||but that deals with an ideology that is becoming more and more aggressive?|
|00:25||The only extremism that is worth of attention is the Islamic one.|
|00:30||The right-wing and left-wing extremisms remain nostalgic fringe groups outside of space and time,|
|00:38||which fortunately are monitored by intelligence agencies|
|00:44||we can count on, and provoke our moral condemnation.|
|00:51||Obviously any kind of violence from people of any political hue is stopped, sentenced and jailed.|
|00:59||But speaking of extremism, half of the acts I sign,|
|01:02||as Minister of the Interior, deal with fighting Islamic extremism.
