Ditto that. See the interview/profile in The New Yorker from earlier this year for further evidence of what a force she was. May we heed her warnings. R.I.P.

We shall not like upon her look again.

Oh, yes we will, and we will honor her by doing so.

"A [Muslim] man who has had sexual relations with an animal, such as a sheep..."

LOL! Call me naive. I thought this was a myth. Guess it can get lonely in the vast wasteland of the desert.

Another tribute here from Debbie Schlussel...

Oriana Fallaci, R.I.P.: Brave Fighter Against Nazis, Islamofascism



By Debbie Schlussel

Some of the best writer/researchers on the truth about extremist Islam and jihad didn't start out that way.

One is Joan Peters, who wrote "From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine," an excellent book that answers Israel's critics. The book is so well done that Alan Dershowitz plagiarized Peters' research for his rehash of it in his "The Case for Israel." Peters originally set out to write an anti-Israel, pan-Arabist tome, but her research showed her the opposite view was the correct one.

Then, there is Oriana Fallaci, the Italian writer. When I was growing up, Fallaci's unwavering leftism put her among Israel's most vocal, vicious non-Arab critics in journalism and one of the Islamists' best friends in the world of the printed word.


Oriana Fallaci, RIP
Then, one day, she finally saw the late--perhaps, way too late. But she certainly did try to make amends for it, in a couple of books and countless articles on extremist Islam.

Fallaci's essays, columns, and articles over the last several years were so spot on and well written that my father would constantly send them to me, even though we knew that before this new era of her enlightenment she was the Islamofascists' useful idiot in friendly interviews with the likes Yasser Arafat--she called the terrorist murderer "charming" (though, at least, in an interview with Ayatollah Khomeini, she attacked Islam's lack of women's rights). Fallaci's newer work was the truth she had denied for so long.

For that, Islamofascists repeatedly tried to silence her, stop the publishing of her material in countries like France, and she was put on trial. They don't have the free speech in Europe that we have here.

It's ironic because Fallaci--at the age of 10 in 1939--joined her father in the anti-fascist freedom fighter resistance against the Nazis. She lived to see them defeated early in her life. But she did not live to see the new Nazis--Islamofascists--defeated. And she warned that they may win, in her books, "The Rage and the Pride," and "The Force of Reason."

Unfortunately, in the era of her best work--her exposes on Islam's extremist takeover of Europe--Fallaci was not only on trial for her work, her health went through its own trial. She was struck with cancer.

Sadly, today, Oriana Fallaci passed away at 77. Oriana Fallaci, Rest In Peace.

“A man who has had sexual relations with an animal, such as a sheep, may not eat its meat. He would commit sin.”

Wow. I had no idea she had passed away.

There are no fatwas in heaven. Rest in peace.

I had not heard of her passing. A sad day ... from whence shall our aspiring essayists learn shadow of the old trade, now that a most brilliant light has been extinguished?

She was a great and courageous lady, a voice crying in the wilderness.

If you want a good laugh shop her ideas on the subject to the President and the leaders of Congress and see how they run. Our leaders are just as transnational as Europe's and wouldn't hesitate to put someone like her in jail at the behest of Arabia if they could get away with it.

"“Refusing to admit that all Islam is a pond inside which we are all drowning, in fact, is against Reason. Not defending our territory, our homes, our children, our dignity, our essence, is against Reason Accepting the silly or cynical lies which are dispensed to us like arsenic inside the soup is against Reason.”

She had to put on a chador to get an interview with Ayatollah Khomenei. Once in his presence, she tore it off, and he stormed out. This story was in her obituary in Britain's Guardian which was rather nasty, accusing her of "Islamophobia."

To: All

I will pick up the torch and carry it whither I may, as best as I can!

I am a Westerner and a Christian. My Judeo-Christian culture is the greatest and most advanced that the world has ever seen.

Furthermore, my country and my culture owe ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER to alla-uzza, the black hearted moon-rock wannabe deity otherwise known to all GOOD and EDUCATED human beings as SATAN, the great Deceiver, the Roaring lion seeking whom he may devour - nor are we indebted to any follower of his through the past 1300 years for anything other than RESTRAINING human peace and human progress

For which we have a blood debt to be accounted for.

Which shall be exacted from those purveyors of evil, murder, mayhem, blasphemy, perversion and deception!

A plague of all plagues upon the rotten soul of the misbegotten son of a leprous camel, the FALSE prophet mohammad the backstabber, mohammad the paedophile, mohammad the liar and adulterer, buggerer of small boys, molester of tied-up goats...

A curse of the most High G_d upon the nations who advocate or tolerate, {or shelter those who do either} genocide against the Jews, His chosen people...or Christians - forgiven, grafted into the vine and adopted by His grace.

His name is Elohim - it has never been 'alla'

Our civilization will not only survive, it will prosper more effectively the fewer of your kind there are in the world.

We do not even so much as need a wax figurine of any of you to serve as a reminder. We would rather forget your uniquely SICK worship of death and violence and repression; we would rather forget you.

Tomorrow I believe I will clean my guns and sharpen my knives, for sheer joy, whilst my mind occupies itself with thoughts unspoken.

Every day, I will sharpen my mind - for, since I do not live underneath the mindless jackbooted heel of muhammadanism, my worthless face ground into a useless prayer rug five times a day - it is my prerogative to think for myself and be responsible for my own actions - both to my neighbors, and to the True G_d of Heaven and earth!
