  • Paris Attacks Confirm Fallaci's Islam Insights

    These are some of the things that Oriana Fallaci wrote after 9/11. So little has changed that she could have written them now, after the Paris attacks, which also confirm how right she was. ~~~~~~~ The enemy is in our home The canard of "moderate" Islam, the comedy of tolerance, the lie of the integration, the farce of multiculturalism continue. And with that, the attempt to make us believe that the enemy consists of a small minority and that small minority lives in distant countries. Well, the enemy is not a small minority. And he's in our home. He's...
  • Geert Wilders in Rome: Defending the West from Cultural Relativism and Jihad

    The American Thinker ^ | March 26, 2011 | Andrew G. Bostom
    Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders made a seminal address yesterday evening (March 25, 2011) at the Annual Lecture of the Magna Carta Foundation in Rome, Italy. As is his wont, Wilders presentation moved far beyond the timorous platitudes about the most obvious (and dangerous) failures of cultural relativism belatedly echoed by Western European leaders Angela Merkel, Nicholas Sarkozy, and David Cameron. Wilders demands that the West acknowledge the jihad-both cultural and military-being waged against it openly and incessantly by institutional Islam, Muslim nations, and the global umma. The Dutch Parlaimentarian concludes his eloquent and informative speech by insisting that four concrete...

    This is a long piece but it does have underage sex and bestiality in it. So enjoy! The other day I had an e-mail from M J Murphy, who blogs as Big City Lib, saying only this: I think you owe Dr. Miller an apology. There followed a link to a post called Steyn Gets Punked By 28-Year Old Literary Hoax: Remember the kerfuffle between Mark Steyn and journalism professor Dr. John Miller from a few weeks back? Dr. Miller accused Steyn of taking material for "America Alone" from illegitimate sources like the infamous Little Green Book: Sayings of the...

    “You go f**k yourself,” said Oriana Fallaci to no one in particular in a recent New Yorker profile. “I say what I want.” And she did. Latterly, she said what she wanted about Islam, on which subject most of us feel constrained to be more, ah, circumspect. And what she wanted to say to Islam boiled down pretty much to: go fuck yourself. She scorned Muslims for their habits of reproduction, of evacuation, of female genital mutilation. She developed obsessions both arcane – who really invented sherbet (the ancient Romans, not the “sons of Allah”) – and unhealthy, if not...

    [translation thanks to Gates of Vienna] Oriana Fallaci Square in place of the mosque VERONA — Goodbye mosque. In its place, Oriana Fallaci Square. This decision was taken by the committee of Oppeano (Verona, Italy), where yesterday morning a building used by Muslims for prayer was bulldozed. In its place, the Municipality will create a public square named after the writer of The Rage and the Pride, which promoted a bitter campaign against Islam.

    In 1985, when I first saw this photograph of Oriana Fallaci - or La Fallaci, as she referred to herself - I was a student at the Iowa Writer's Workshop: a displaced East Coast girl, unhappy in the cornfields among my cutthroat fellow students. I remember staring at Fallaci's surly expression, her dark nail varnish and burning cigarette, and thinking she was beautiful. Her deep-set eyes had a lived-in look: She saw the world for what it ws and did not give a damn how it regarded her back. Seeing this sophisticated Italian, I realized how out of place I...

    ROME - An Italian journalist and self-described atheist who died last month has left most of her books and notes to a pontifical university in Rome because of her admiration for Pope Benedict XVI, a school official said Saturday. Oriana Fallaci had described the pontiff as an ally in her campaign to rally Christians in Europe against what she saw as a Muslim crusade against the West. As she battled breast cancer last year, she had a private audience with Benedict, who was elected only a few months earlier, at the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo. In one of...

A lot of people miss Oriana. God bless you all. Claudia

    I am a bigot, a Klansman "with higher-thread-count sheets," the "enemy within," part of "the rotten core of American extremists" who are making it harder for moderate Muslims "to recapture their own faith." So says Ralph Peters, retired military man, establishment conservative and eternal optimist. In a commentary in the September 7th New York Post, Peters went postal on those who believe (in his words) "that Islam can never reform, that the violent conquest and subjugation of unbelievers is the faith's primary agenda." Us Islamophobes fantasize about the "Protocols of the Elders of Mecca," imply that Muslims are "evil and...

    Hallo everybody! I write today in the name of some Italian web site ( and As you know, last week the Italian writer Oriana Fallaci passed away. You know for sure how much I loved and I still love her. Well, some people in Florence want to dedicate to her a Street or a Square. But the Major of the city (a commie, by the way) said no. I ask you to send him an e-mail asking to intitolate a Street with the name of Oriana Fallaci. We have already done it and we're asking to everybody to join...

    Oriana Fallaci (1929 - 2006) was called a leftist. Oriana Fallaci was called a fascist. I do not believe in the Left or the Right. I believe in the wet grass under my stockened feet soaking my skin. That is very much reality; that is not the symbolism of semantics. Labels are what men and women pin on each other as they seek to define the truth in their own minds. Fallaci was very much herself, whatever she believed in, and like most of us, her beliefs likely changed over time, with the ebb and flow of crisis and chaos,...
  • Critics seek to undermine Pope's influence, Cardinal Ruini suspects (He Also Praises Oriana)

    Catholic World News ^ | 9/18/2006 | n/a 18 ( - Cardinal Camillo Ruini has announced that he thinks the international outrage surrounding Pope Benedict's speech in Regensburg is being fed-- especially in Italy-- by people who seek to damage the Pope's authority. "We deplore the misinterpretations-- which are not lacking in our own country," the cardinal said at a September 18 meeting of the leadership of the Italian bishops' conference. He promised that the Italian bishops would stand firm with the Pontiff, in the face of attacks that reflect a serious misreading of the Pope's actual text. Cardinal Ruini said that he was "surprised" that many...

    I envision her as a Viking warrior, whose body is sent to the gods on a fiery barge with all the honors due. Oriana Fallaci was outspoken, courageous, dedicated, talented, passionate and honest – in her personal life and in her writings as a journalist, reporter and novelist. And now she's gone. The call, early Friday morning, brought me the news I dreaded. Oriana Fallaci had died at 3 a.m. in a private clinic in the city of her birth, Florence, Italy. She was 77. She is survived by siblings and their children. I cried. I felt I knew her...

    NEW YORK--Even as Oriana Fallaci breathed her last through lungs marinaded in enough nicotine to sink a ship (leave alone a birdlike creature who weighed no more than 80 pounds at best, pearl necklace included), protests rumbled in the Muslim world over a recent utterance by Pope Benedict XVI in which he faulted the prophet, Muhammad, for exhorting his followers to spread Islam by the sword. Effigies of the pope have been torched by mobs, although the irruption has also included unintended drollery; a spokeswoman for the Musharraf dispensation in Pakistan observed yesterday that "anyone who describes Islam as a...

    Fallaci died yesterday, September 15, in Florence, Italy.In her memory, I offer an introduction to Ms Fallaci that I delivered on November 28, 2005, at a Center for the Study of Popular Culture event honoring her, chaired by David Horowitz. Her talk that evening, at the 3 West Club in New York City, was latterly incorporated in her book, The Force of Reason. I believe this was her final public appearance. It is my great pleasure to introduce Oriana Fallaci to you.Born in 1930 in Florence, Italy, she was brought up in an anti-fascist family and her father was...

    Depressing Times Oriana Fallaci, RIP, the Pope, and a Sad Age Rarely has the death of a public intellectual affected me as much as the passing of Oriana Fallaci. I never met her, and only received a brief note once from her accompanying a copy of The Rage and the Pride. The story of her career is well known, but her death, at this pivotal time, was full of paradoxes and yet instruction as well. Radical Islam is, among other things, a patriarchal movement, embedded particularly in the cult of the Middle-Eastern male, who occupies a privileged position in a...

    FAREWELL, LA FALLACI I never really thought cancer would get Oriana Fallaci. She seemed so full of fire in the last few years that one assumed any tumor would shrivel and burn inside her. No doubt the legal harassment from her enemies and their appeasers in European justice systems took some toll. But she lived to finish a brace of books unique in their rollercoaster combination of facts and passion. Here's what I had to say about The Force Of Reason in Maclean's a few months ago: Over in Sweden, they’ve been investigating the Grand Mosque of Stockholm. Apparently, it’s...

    Oriana Falacci was not a favorite with the PC crowd. She made no bones about her loathing of what she called Eurabia. This was no latter-day Crusader readying for the onslaught of the Islamic invader. As she saw it, the incursion had already taken place, and post-Christian Europe was the worse for it. When she died last week she bequeathed to the world a series of books, some luminous, some overwrought, but all written with an ardent mind and heart. Falacci’s last volume, The Force of Reason, uses a litany of radical Islam’s recent crimes—anti-Semitic and anti-Christian screeds, beheadings, explosions,...
