Thanks for the ping. I have watched Oriana Fallaci for a long time. The lady can write. Perhaps such clear passion was once typical of more people. I am most impressed that her views are based in the authority of her own extraordinary experiences, and by the insights that have moved her from the anti-fascist left to where she is now. However, I do not believe it is appropriate to lump all Moslems into one monolithic threat. For example, I am thinking of Anwar Sadat (on whom be peace).

I have just finished reading Fallaci's book, The Rage and The Pride. I highly recommend it, in fact I have just ordered several copies for friends. A quote from her...

The fact is that America is a very special country, my dear. A country to really envy, yes, a country to really be jealous of. And for reasons which have nothing to do with her richness, her immense power, or her military supremacy. Do you know why? Because America is a nation that arose from a need of the soul, the need for a Patria, and for the most sublime idea ever conceived in the West: the idea of Liberty married to the idea of Equality.
