One out of three Italians oppose new mosques, says survey

    According to a recent national survey conducted by the Italian Makno Consulting company and commissioned by the Italian government, one out of three Italians oppose the constructing of new mosques. The survey found that 31 percent of Italians are against the building of new mosques because they are afraid of possible terrorist attacks by radicals, and fear of intolerance towards Catholicism. While this number is substantial, non-Muslim immigrants showed even less tolerance than their Italian counterparts – with about 50 percent opposing the opening of new mosques.
