Vatican And Italy's President Sergio Mattarella Square Off Against The Forerunner To The Antichrist Salvini On Migrant Boat Standoff
“A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops gathered from several nations, will fight against the true Christ, the only Saviour of the world. He will shed much blood and will want to annihilate the worship of God to make himself be looked upon as a God. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Vatican teams up with Italy's President Sergio Mattarella:
Italy’s President intervenes to end migrant boat standoff
Italy's President Sergio Mattarella contacted Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to express his concern about the plight of the 67 migrants rescued at sea and brought to the Sicilian port of Trapani. The Interior Minister Matteo Salvini had earlier refused to allow the migrants to disembark until an investigation determined whether any of them had violently threatened their rescuers to prevent them being returned to Libya.
The Diciotti coast guard ship pulled into the port of Trapani in Sicily after taking on board the migrants from an Italian-flagged oil rig supply tug that rescued them on Sunday off the coast of Libya.
Latest standoff over migrants
The dispute over what happened next to the migrants was the latest standoff since Italy’s populist government took power last month. After receiving President Mattarella’s phone call, Conte ordered the migrants be allowed off the ship and they finally disembarked on Thursday evening.
NGO's and Church appeals
Earlier on Thursday, the United Nations and NGOs had urged the Italian authorities to allow the migrants to disembark from the Diciotti ship to receive care.
The aid groups said the refugees and migrants, among them women, children and adolescents, had been at sea for at least four days and appealed for the urgent activation of primary health care starting with minors and vulnerable people.
For his part, the Bishop of Trapani Pietro Maria Fragnelli had called for "rapid solutions" to save lives. Source
