Thank you for posting this thread. I plan to order Oriana Fallaci books. So sorry to hear she lost her battle with cancer.
May she rest in peace. She was truly a warrior.
Rest in peace, Oriana.
I hope her words reverbate for some time. She was a massively small woman.
Bump for later.
Her name Oriana means Golden Dawn. And she indeed was "golden".
I wouldn't say so much that she "has gone to Valhalla" as in a slain warrior since she didn't die in combat BUT I wouldn't doubt that she could go there to BECOME a Valkyrie. For she was a LIVING Valkyrie during WWII when she "aided escaped Allied soldiers reach safety" (as opposed to taking the fallen/dead to Valhalla).
Early in her life she fought against Nazism/Fascism & in later years she continued that by verbally fighting islamofascism.
The following sentiment comes to mind...
"For those who remember her, remember her well, for those that DON'T they can rot in Hell."
Which the name Hell comes from Norse goddess 'Hel' who ran their underworld. Also, considering that Norse Hell is said to be a very cold frozen wasteland I think the enemies she had been fighting by the pen being of the middle eastern origins where it is very hot...I think that a frozen wasteland would be the worse Hell for them compared to a fiery pit.
