I would guess that Oriana sighed and then laughed when she saw this....I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

If "artists" today had any real courage, they would start an exhibit featuring depictions of Islam in all its bloody splendor. "The Prophet" with his hands dripping blood; a smug smiling countenance before a background of rape, fire, and brutality; a Boschean garden of earthly villainy; all these are images of Islam, no more insulting to that gutter religion than Serrano was to Christianity.
But today's artists, all their braggadocio notwithstanding, only have the guts to attack something safe, to pile on the bandwagon of anti-Western thought and bore yet another generation with their self-loathing cliches.

It would be interesting to follow the money. I find it difficult to believe that this "artist" can support himself by selling his art. How much do you want to bet that some group or country is supporting him and telling him what kind of crap to "create".

Someone needs to photo shop Giuseppe Venezianos severed head and send it to him. Show him what the consequences of appeasement to Muslims will get him.

the weakness and perversity of the American way of life.
Rendered by people who have probably never been to America, and who can't see the log in their own eye.

Oriana Fallaci nails Islamofacism in her writings and Europeans know it. In my mind, every American and every westerner should read Fallaci's 'The Rage and the Pride' - one of the most insightful books ever written on the coming storm with Islam.
Fallaci's background gives her a powerful vantage point that spells out exactly what Islam is now doing to the west.

More proof that Islam worships violence and death.

Oriana has much more courage than this painter. Apparently more talent as well.
Boycott Italian wines as your personal response to this fine artistic affront. (We ruined the state-sponsored French wine industry by doing that.) Discourage the rich sponsors and let Fallaci draw anti-American doodles on the sidewalk. And stay away from Milan, ugly place anyhow.

(DO NOT read to the end of this tagline . . . Oh, $#@%^, there you went and did it.)
"Although I find the picture of Fallaci decapitated deeply offensive, I have no plans to attack the Italian embassy,"
Of course not. Like all decent people everywhere, you recoil in disgust and that's it.
Frankly, I recoil in disgust at the stupid male blow-up doll that's got the Muslims worked up again.
I also recoil in disgust at female blow-up dolls. I suppose they satisfy some need somewhere...fortunately not mine. (I can think of a helluva better way to spend the energy, time, and money. Most of us can.)
