The Italians birth rate crashed in the late 60's and has been way, way below the replacement rate ever since. Currently, Italy's fertility rate is about two-thirds of the replacement rate, but that rate depends in large part on the fertility of the immigrant population: people such as the Libyans who have about three-times as many children as their Italian "sisters." No wonder the Pope sucks up Muslims: the Vatican will soon be a fortress within a Muslim state.

Will the Italian response to the crisis of population implosion work? Almost certainly not. They're gonna increase the child allowance for poor people. Since the immigrants from Africa are the poorest people in Italy, the new policy will simply hasten the replacement of the Italians by people from elsewhere.
The immigrants are mostly good people, no doubt, but they're not Italians. That's a good thing, according to Barack Obama who just visited England to tell the British people that their national sovereignty is "obsolete." In Obama's view, the ethnic cleansing of the English from their great cities — genocide, that is — is a good thing.
