Payoff from Mussolini continues to enrich Catholic Church

From the guardian.uk

this is the headline:

"How the Vatican built a secret property empire using Mussolini's millions

Papacy used offshore tax havens to create £500m international portfolio, featuring real estate in UK, France and Switzerland"

all from Mussolini payoff:

"Behind a disguised offshore company structure, the church's international portfolio has been built up over the years, using cash originally handed over by Mussolini in return for papal recognition of the Italian fascist regime in 1929"

Wow.  just wow.  The Catholic Church continues to profit from the spoils of fascism, more than half a century after defeat of the fascist regimes in WWII.
