Comment: In our book, “The Nazi Roots of the ‘Brussels EU’”, we describe how Berlusconi is known to have been a member of a Nazi-linked masonic lodge known as “Propaganda Due” or P-2. Notably, therefore, Licio Gelli, P-2’s former grandmaster, was jailed in 1998 for corruption and fraud in connection with the Banco Ambrosiano scandal and has been openly described by the New York Times as “a known Fascist.” Some sources, including the New Zealand Herald and The Observer newspaper in the UK, have alleged links between P-2 and state terrorism. Others, such as the BBC, point to connections with the Mafia. Condemned by a Milan court in 2012 as a man with a "natural capacity for crime", over the years Berlusconi has been involved in more than a dozen different criminal trials, appeals and other investigations and faced accusations of fraud, bribery, illegal political financing, false accounting and Mafia connections.
