The government of Oppenao (Verona), Italy, refused to build a mosque and is about to build instead a plaza in honor of author Oriana Fallaci, Italy's La Republicca reports.
On May 17, bulldozers destroyed the little building that was used as a preach room and which was thought by Oppenao's muslims to become a mosque.
The Oppenao mayor told journalists his citizens didn't want the mosque and they supported the idea of honoring Fallaci instead.
Oriana Fallaci is known for her fight against islam. She died of cancer in 2006.
Hahaha, fight on, Crusaders! Show them what we (some of us, anyway) are made of!! Put a crucifix on that building, too — keeps the demons at bay.
Whoa! Double whammy.
Not only are the mooselimbs not getting there mosque, but they are going to have to look at a building erected in the honor of a woman who was not afraid to call them the evil satanic cult that they are.
Hey Italians, better not park your Lamborgini on the street tonight.
OMG, knock me over with a feather!!
First good news out of Eurabia in maybe 5+ years.
I'm surprised this woman didn't die from her head being cut off... Or is that too insensitive?
Is there a building fund we can make donations to?
Music to my ears! I wish ALL governments would take that stand against Islam!
Excluding of course some first class cartoons.
Wowzers is this some good news from the Eyetalyans.
Oriana Fallaci was a rare brave soul in Europe. In her youth she fought as a partisan against the Mussolini Fascists and later fought Islam with pen and word. God Bless her!
Some friends just came back from Italy. They said there is Islamic graffiti all over our treasured antiquities.
This is the second-best bit of news I've read today.
(Ooops, can I say that?)
Good for them.
The same kind of terrorists who support Obama did this:
Never apologize for them.
Never appease them.
Ping me when “Onward Christian Soldiers” appears in a US church hymnal.
I love it!
In her later years she lived in Manhattan. Her trilogy of books at the end of her life was about how she felt about Islam as well as the Catholic Church (she was agnostic and socialist). Like only a few liberals such as Christopher Hitchens, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Ron Silver, she saw the greater threat that Islam posed.
In Italy, she was under threat of arrest for “hate” speech.
Robin: “Holy Jihad, Batman!”
Batman: “To the batboat, quickly!”
We could learn from the Italians.
I just wish our politicians had the brass to do so.
I must visit Italy soon!
I like this news!
Now wait a sec... that doesn't make sense to me... if there was an arrest warrant for her... why do they want to build a plaza in her name now?
There’s a difference between a local government and the national government prosecutor.
They realized she was right, very courageous, fought the islamization of Italy as she died of cancer
