F d president erkänner terroristsamarbete

Italiens ex-president erkänner nu öppet landets
mångåriga samarbete med en mängd terror-
organisationer i Mellanöstern. Man köpte sig
"lugn" genom att acceptera att landet för-
vandlades till en arabisk terrorbas...
När kommer någon svensk politiker att "tala
ut" om vad som hände i Stockholm under Palme-
erans dystra tid.....
(IsraelNN.com) In a letter appearing in the weekend
edition of the respected Italian newspaper Corriere
della Sera, former Italian President Francesco Cossiga
revealed that the government of Italy agreed to
allow Arab terrorist groups freedom of movement in
the country in exchange for immunity from attacks in Italy.
Cossiga wrote that the government of the late Prime
Minister Aldo Moro reached a "secret non-belligerence
pact between the Italian state and Palestinian
resistance organizations, including terrorist groups,"
in the 1970s. According to the former president,
it was Moro himself who designed the terms of the
agreement with the foreign Arab terrorists.
Ironically, Moro later met his death at the hands
of homegrown Italian terrorists, the Red Brigades,
in 1978.
"The terms of the agreement were that the
Palestinian organizations could even maintain
armed bases of operation in the country, and
they had freedom of entry and exit without
being subject to normal police controls, because
they were 'handled' by the secret services,"
Cossiga explained.
As Interior Minister, Cossiga said that he learned
PLO members in Italy had diplomatic immunity
as representatives of the Arab League.
When he became alarmed by the heavy weapons
defenses installed around the homes of PLO
members living in Rome, the guards were
persuaded to switch to light arms.
Cossiga was later elected president of Italy from
1985-1992 and is today a senator-for-life in the
Italian legislature.
In his letter, the former Italian president also
linked the Arab terrorist groups of the 1970s
with the Italian far-left.
"The Palestinian organizations could even
maintain armed bases of operation in the country."
- Cossiga
According to Cossiga, he received a telegram from
the head of an anti-Israel terrorist group head-
quartered at the time in Beirut requesting the
return of one of their surface-to-air missiles
that had gone missing.
The missile was intercepted by Italian police while
being "driven on the streets by a well-known
ideologue of the extra-parliamentary left!"
Cossiga wrote.
In an article in Corriere della Sera the week before
Cossiga's admission, a former leader of the Popular
Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) also
claimed that his terror group and the Italian
leadership had reached an accord protecting
Italy from attack in exchange for Italian non-
interference in PFLP activities in Italy.
The former PFLP boss, Bassam Abu Sharif,
later became a senior member of the Palestine
Liberation Organization (PLO) and personal
advisor to the late terrorist leader Yasser Arafat.
While there were several terrorist attacks on
targets in Italy in the years following the alleged
"protection" deal, most of them could be traced
to Abu Nidal's terrorist organization. Abu Nidal
rejected the authority of the PLO leadership and
many of his attacks, including those in Rome,
were assassinations of PLO figures and other
Arab diplomats.
