Oriani Fallaci, anti-dhimmitude activist, RIP

oriana_fallaci_young.jpgOriana Fllaci has died. A hero devoted to upholding the values of Western Civilization. A voice of warning in Europe's wilderness.

We hope Europe will wake up, but doubt it.

WaPo:

Veteran journalist and writer Oriana Fallaci, a former war correspondent best known for her abrasive interviews and provocative stances, has died, Italian news reports said Friday. She was 76....

Fallaci, a former Resistance fighter and war corespondent who was hardly seen in public, had lived in New York for years....

Her recent publications _ including the best-selling book "The Rage and The Pride," which came out weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001 _ drew accusations of inciting hatred against Muslims.

What WAPO fails to mention is the reason for the Italian journalist being in New York. She was in exile from a country which has enacted draconian hate speech laws. Fallaci's crime was for "defaming Islam".

She will be missed. Hat tip: Tom
