    The series of anti-Christian initiatives will allow the Apulia region to open up to tourism from the Islamic world.  This is the intent of the “Muslim-friendly” project, promoted as part of the Apulia Destination programme.

    A public notice has called for “the presentation of project proposals aimed at defining the promotion plan of the Apulia ‘Muslim Friendly’ tourism offer”. The Italian left clearly believes that the crippling economic consequences caused by the Coronavirus emergency, will be addressed by Islamic tourism.

    An overall budget of 90 000 euros including VAT, has been set aside for promoting projects that include overnight stays, guided tours, tourist packages and catering. These projects must take into account “the particular needs of Muslim tourists, who, according to recent sector research, are constantly growing in number, as well as having peculiarities that make them also qualitatively very interesting for the Apulian territory”.

    Giorgia Meloni, leader of the Brothers of Italy, a national conservative party, on Twitter commented on the Apulia Promotion Plan. Among the various prescriptions are separate swimming pools between men and women and staff dressed appropriately (no miniskirts but rather burqas), and a series of other anti-Western rules.

    Meloni said Italians were “paying with public resources to get Islamized”.

    The leader of the League Matteo Salvini, gave an ironic explanation taking into consideration the flurry of landings that continue to affect Italy. “Actually a priority … Given the multiplication of landings of small boats, barges and even sailing ships on the most beautiful coasts of Salento, I would say that they are on the right track … Poor Apulia, this left is a disgrace.” Apulia’s coastline is longer than that of any other mainland Italian region and therefore particularly vulnerable to migrant landings.

    Clearly worried about the controversy they had ignited, the Apulian authorities decided to withdraw the anti-Christian call.

      The fact that the plans of Apulia’s leftist PD (“Democratic” Party) government were shelved when Salvini, Meloni, and others in the center-right publicized them shows how concerned the center-left is in the run-up to the upcoming elections. Four regions held by leftists, namely Apulia, Campania, Marche, and Tuscany, are among the seven that will be having regional elections. Apulia seems the most vulnerable, but Lega and other center-right candidates are likely to do in the other three regions. The leftist bastion of Tuscany may be the hardest target, but Campania will be a challenge for the center-right as well.
