    The Fratelli d’Italia [Brothers of Italy] is not represented in the new government of Italy, but Meloni supports the policies of Matteo Salvini and the League party.

    Meloni’s proposal for an anti-Soros law in Italy, is modeled after the one recently passed in Hungary.

    “In Italy, people still invite George Soros to speak in public. They call him a philanthropist, but we are talking about a speculator,” she said.

    Meloni explained that in 1992 Soros cost Italy billions of lire in speculation to enrich himself, something that Italians should keep in mind.

    Soros warned that trying to punish Rome for voting for “populist parties” would undermine the EU and increase the popularity of the anti-EU League party and the Five Star Movement.

    “He is worried about the government voted in by the Italians.And we hope that in the future he will be very worried, because the government will do its work as we wish, to pass the law proposed by the Brothers of Italy to prevent Soros and his ilk from financing non-governmental organisations that favour illegal immigration,” Meloni explained.

    “Because their object is to render nation states ever weaker so that speculation will triumph.” She added: “Soros, we want you to worry, because we are proposing an anti-Soros law.”

    Matteo Salvini, League leader exposed the Soros plan to voters in March. He said the Open Society Foundation funded NGOs to agitate for illegal immigration, the liberalisation of drugs and attacking traditional gender roles and family values.

    Salvini said Soros would like to see the end of men and women so that everyone could become only a number without a history or identity. “They are stealing our dreams!” he told a meeting of the Scuola di Formazione Politica.

    “They are very well organised and rich enemies,” Salvini added. He said history is repeating itself with an Islamic invasion of Italy similar to what the country suffered during the 15th century.

    Soros meanwhile implored EU leaders to be careful of Italy to avoid the “disintegration” of the open-border European project.

    “The EU is threatened by Trump’s America, Putin’s Russia, Erdogan’s Turkey and Assad’s Syria. Inside, Poland and Hungary are undermining the values on which the EU is based, but Italy is emerging as the most pressing challenge to its sustainability.

    “The disintegration of Europe is no longer a figure of speech; it is a harsh reality,” Soros told the media.

    After France and Austria closed their borders, migrants found themselves stuck in Italy. But EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker blamed Italians instead. “Italians should take care of poorer regions of Italy,” Juncker said.
