Oriani Fallaci, anti-dhimmitude activist, RIP
Oriana 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.
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....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".
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.
She will be missed. Hat tip: Tom
