From The Malta Independent July 02, 2001
You Maltese are responsible for an ignoble massacre which I have personally witnessed over the past years, ever since I started
to encourage people to visit foreign lands except Malta.
This year alone I have taken 75 to Pantelleria, 39 to the
Isole Pelage and 46 to the Eolian Islands. I told my clients that the Maltese have no respect whatsoever for nature.
I can assure you that when I told them, and showed them films and photographs of the massacre of birds that fly over Malta,
many became very angry.
I am now working to get many travel agencies to boycott your island and I am already succeeding.
Perhaps Malta is still a lovely place, but the Maltese, the way they behave and defend those who fire on birds, are
uncivilised people who do not merit anything except scorn.
