Bella Ciao!!! - Vittorio Arrigoni's Remains Reach Rome- and a Hero's Welcome

Vittorio Arrigoni's legacy will never die, he is not dead. His spirit and courage matter now more than ever.

Vittorio Arrigoni's body arrives in Rome, from Gaza.

(ROME / SALEM) - It seems we are still absorbing the images of the memorial procession for Vittorio Arrigoni in Gaza, and now we see what could only be described as a solemn yet glorious reception in Vik's home country.

His remains arrived at the Fiumicino Airport with many in attendance, as the photos below attest. Vik's kidnapping and murder in Gaza has left the world in shock, and a theory that Palestinians committed the crime without influence from Israel, is quickly losing ground.

He was too committed to Palestine, there is no way, as our writer Ken O'Keefe, a close friend of Vik's, said from the beginning.

It just doesn't make any sense, yet we know from pro-Israeli Websites that called for the death of Vittorio Arrigoni and other humanitarian peace activists from the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), that they would very much cheer his demise.

Their supporters have deluged our stories with reports about his death with comments that range from disrespectful to outright disgusting and evil, always in the name of Israel.

Vittorio Arrigoni's legacy will never die, he is not dead. His spirit and courage and hard work matter now more than ever, and we will never let the world forget this man, not for a second.

Vittorio was a great man, the IDF and Israel together are the purest expression of evil.
