Italy Report: ‘More Immigrants = More Crime’

by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
Breitbart, 23 Nov 2016

There is a direct correlation between the number of immigrants entering the country and the rise in the crime rate, according to a report published Wednesday by the Italian daily, Il Giornale.

In its front page report titled “More Immigrants = More Crime,” the newspaper cited results from a recent study conducted by the Confcommercio group on the statistical connection between crime and immigration.

The report found that in a determined area, if the number of immigrants increases by 1 percent, the crime rate in the same area goes up by 0.4 percent.

Moreover, the study revealed that among Italian citizens there are 4.3 convicted criminals per 1000, while among legal immigrants the rate is nearly double, at 8.5 criminals per 1000. More alarming still, among illegal immigrants the crime rate soars to more than 50 percent (148 criminals out of every 247 persons).

One of the more troubling discoveries of the study was that for the first time, the crime rate in the north of Italy, which has the highest concentration of immigrants and asylum seekers, is surpassing that of the south.

Including loss of revenue, costs for personal injury, insurance and expenses for defense systems, crime has cost Italian businesses 26.5 billion euros in 2016, according to the study. In particular, illegal itinerant vendors account for 8.1 billion, dining in restaurants without paying 5.6 billion, counterfeiting 3.5 billion and shoplifting 3.6 billion, the study noted.

Official data from the National Institute for Statistics (ISTAT) and the Interior Ministry also register an increase in more serious crimes, such as extortion, usury and threats, which increased from 22 crimes per 1000 businesses in 2010 to 24.1 per 1000 in 2015.

According to the study, one Italian business owner out of 10 active in trade and services in 2016 received threats or intimidation for the purpose of extortion, and 61 percent ended up paying rather than face repercussions.

The study, which comprised 900 businesses, found that the most targeted sectors are the food industry (14 percent) and public services (12 percent). More than one in four business owners has reported a deterioration in the security level of their business since last year, a figure that is accentuated particularly in the northeast and the south of the country.

Speaking at a Confcommercio conference this week, Carlo Sangalli, president of the group, said that “counterfeiting, illegal vendors, extortion and robberies have cost Italians 180 thousand jobs.”

Sangalli has called on the government for more stringent enforcement and penalties “against all forms of lawlessness.”

As Breitbart News reported earlier this week, Italy is on the verge of overtaking its record year for immigration. Since January 1, more than 168,500 migrants have landed on Italian shores and daily arrivals continue in the hundreds.

  1. It is unbelievable that Italy does not take a more active stance in stemming this incoming tidal wave of ‘refugees’, migrants or whatever they are best called. These people, by their own admissions, coming from highly unstable parts of the world, have blind belief in a system which thoroughly mixes its ideology, religion and ‘law’ into one big mess called Islam. There is a reason that where Islam proliferates, there follows either iron fisted autocracies or chaos, or both.

    I continue to marvel that many of the incoming Muslims show little to no gratitude, complaining constantly about their living conditions in their host countries, available food. In watching one video, a few of them from Africa, with gleeful though demented smiles, kept saying ‘money, money, money’, that that is why they have come and that’s what they expect to get.

    They have no respect for the laws of the countries that they are coming into, want to change the system in which they live in their host countries, but of course have absolutely no idea how to go about that, other that to seek out and get as much as they possible can. These crime statistics are startling. Italy and other European countries could do a great deal to stem the tide, those coming by water, simply turn those boats around and send them right back from whence they come.


  2. A major problem is arising in the UK with more and more Muslims, doing what they do best, ‘protesting’, Muslims demanding Sharia law. Sights such as these will become more common.


    Enjoy reading your – ‘nail-on-the-head’ – posts, Richard.

    ANGOLA – (copied + pasted) from Google:
    ”Angola has a population of more than 18 million, while the number of Muslims in the country is not thought to exceed 50,000, most of them foreign nationals from West Africa. All of the 86 churches and sects recognised by the government are Christian.
    The Angolan state does not recognise Islam”

    Hey! Thinking about this for a minute …
    If a group of Christians wanted to build a place of Christian Worship (in let’s say) Saudi Arabia – than I fully expect that the consequence of (attempting) to do so would be the same as in this (next) YouTube video.

    N.B. More than 80 mosques – (no doubt built with Saudi money) for (about) half-a-million Muslims … ‘over-kill’ or what?

    Wikipedia doesn’t say how many Christian churches there are in Angola … but with a little basic arithmetic I am willing to bet that the actual numbers are disproportionate for the total of 80 mosques for 500,000 Muslims to the factor of the population of Christians in the population of Angola and Christian churches to serve this community.

    In my opinion they (Muslims) are bare faced cheeky buggers that are hell bent on their programme of domination – in ALL aspects of our lives – and that would include ‘swamping’ their adopted country with bloody Mosques!

    This next link is a very interesting – but a mega Big link – so maybe you would want to save it for a stormy weekend when you can’t get out for a beer?


    • Thanks for sharing the link Richard, I’m watching Mosquebusters which is featured on the site, a YouTube video .. the speaker is right, many people just throw up their hands, he is talking about Muslims blocking people’s driveways and their general arrogance, many think there is nothing that can be done, so they do nothing to confront the situation. But the speaker and others sympathetic to this view about encroaching Islam are working to do something about it, non violently. Scary too as he pointed out that in Europe generally, where Muslims are present, their numbers are doubling every decade, so if if ‘only’ 4% of the population is currently Muslim, wait another ten years or so for a possible doubling.

      I am stunned still when reading articles as I did recently, about those Muslims in Iraq who feel marginalized, certainly no one would want to be persecuted, but then the article shows a picture of a married couple with 8 children! And naturally, there is no talk about controlling their own numbers, is the concept of contraception even acknowledged? It is no wonder there are so many so called ‘refugees’, their own countries don’t have enough resources to support them. The ultimate welfare ‘queens’, looking for unending support from Europe, North America! The Aussies have wised up on this, working toward strictly limiting numbers of those incoming.


  4. @ Richard Mather. Thanks very much, Richard and for the link. I’ve decided that on our turkey day, as the link you shared may be ‘unsettling’ to stomach and spirit, to postpone viewing for a day or two 🙂 But I will definitely be taking a look.

    I say your math is just right, 80 mosques for 50,000 Muslims, quite overkill. I noticed something in the video link, the imam basically says that in small numbers, there is not much to fear with Islamic populations … and therein lies the rub, when their numbers get higher and higher, there is proportionately more violence and their attempt to try to change the country & political system in their host countries.

    Perhaps the Admin or others can help with this. Within the past year or so, I heard about an author who notes something profound, the correlation between the percentage of Muslims in a country, and the increasing threats to that country. For example, when the population of Muslims in a country is very low, say 1-2%, they are quiet, in the background. At about 5%, they become more active politically. At around 10%, they are much more vocal, lots of protesting … and as the percentages increase in any country, there is much more cultural conflict. As they reach majority, as they did in African nations which were once Christian, they become completely intolerant of other religious or belief systems, become violent on unbelievable levels. The author of the book had studied this for many years, comparing societies as the numbers of Muslims increased. Very troubling stuff. I can’t recall the author’s name at the moment.


  5. Fortunately I saved this, as the original article has disappeared …

    ‘In the book, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, written by Dr. Peter Hammond, he explores the topic of the impact that an increasing Muslim population has on that society. The lists below illustrate the Muslim population status of countries around the world, and exactly what changes to the societies can be expected according to Hammond.

    The book as well as the author are controversial, but the topic is definitely something that needs to be explored and understood. From the book:

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

    United States — Muslim 0.6%

    Australia — Muslim 1.5%

    Canada — Muslim 1.9%

    China — Muslim 1.8%

    Italy — Muslim 1.5%

    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

    This is happening in:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%

    Germany — Muslim 3.7%

    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

    Spain — Muslim 4%

    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for

    Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

    France — Muslim 8%

    Philippines — 5%

    Sweden — Muslim 5%

    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:

    Guyana — Muslim 10%

    India — Muslim 13.4%

    Israel — Muslim 16%

    Kenya — Muslim 10%

    Russia — Muslim 15%


  6. Part two …

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%

    Chad — Muslim 53.1%

    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and ***ya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%

    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

    Egypt — Muslim 90%

    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

    Iran — Muslim 98%

    Iraq — Muslim 97%

    Jordan — Muslim 92%

    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

    Pakistan — Muslim 97%

    Palestine — Muslim 99%

    Syria — Muslim 90%

    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

    Somalia — Muslim 100%

    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.


  7. THIS illustrates just how fooked up Islam is.
    Giving license to RAPE little girls is WRONG
    but NOT if you are willing to marry the victim.
    >>> ???SAY WHAT??? <<<
    Which set of Mad Mullahs thought this one up?
    Luckily for the little girls in Turkey there are at least 'some' –
    – Turkish citizens who are appalled by this suggested edict.

    And now I hear that Erdogan is threatening\blackmailing the EU by saying that if Turkey is denied membership of the EU he will (sic) ''open-the-floodgates'' and overwhelm us with the economic migrants – (that we are paying Turkey to contain) – in a fit of pique!
    He wants 'free movement without borders' throughout Europe for all Turkish citizens.

    I am left wondering which is worse … being flooded with economic migrants throughout Europe to 'sponge-off-our-welfare-system?' – or – Being flooded with citizens from Turkey throughout Europe to 'sponge-off-our-welfare-system'?
    And make a Rod for all our backs by adding to the mountain of utter shite that has now become the norm in Europe!

    This is surely a lose – lose situation. I am going to beat your brains in – but you have a choice – you can have a lump hammer – or you can have a ball pin hammer.

    Actually, I just flipped a coin. If we say economic migrants (over the Turks) then at least we have a chance of repatriation – but if we say the Turks, then, as they will be members of the EU we will have a legal obligation to uphold and the Law and the Law will side with Turkey :o(

    Sorry that my post is off topic as this original item related to Italy and –
    – ''A direct correlation between immigrants and the rise in crime rate''
    But I have a spleen that was in much need of venting.


    • @ Richard Mather. It’s stunning that we’ve come to this place in the road, choosing one of two awful options … that of allowing in more dangerous freeloaders who come by boat or any way they can smuggle themselves in, or by so called legal ‘immigration’ with tons of Indians (the kind from India!) getting a free pass to the EU. Just like the huge influx of Muslims with Merkel, she is also the one instrumental in waving the carrot at Turkey.

      Ok my vote, how about neither option, there are enough Islamists in Europe already!


  8. ‘COLUMBUS, Ohio — An Ohio State student drove a car into a crowd outside a classroom building Monday morning, then got out and slashed at people with a butcher knife, sending 11 people to the hospital in what authorities said was a planned assault.

    University public safety officials identified the student as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who neighbors said belonged to a large Somali family living in Columbus.’

    One more member of the Dirtbag Express strikes again in America, hmm, what a ‘surprise’, yet another Muslim whack job!
