  • Geert Wilders in Rome: Defending the West from Cultural Relativism and Jihad

    03/27/2011 1:36:36 AM PDT · by Scanian · 6 replies
    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...

    “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...

    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...

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."

    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,...

"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.

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...

    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,...

First we honor the life of Oriana Fallaci, that famous and courageous Italian writer, who devoted most of her last years to warning Europeans against the threat to European culture and freedom from the Islamic invasion that is taking place there. Many of her pleas were directed at Pope John Paul II, who was so instrumental in bringing down the Soviet empire, but who gave few outward signs that Islamic fascism greatly concerned him. Oriana died today of...

    Europe is facing a great conspiracy to destroy its civilisation, enslave its peoples, and use it as a base for the conquest of the world. The conspiracy is hatched by Muslims with a diabolical strategy in which mass immigration to Europe and high birth rates once they have settled there are the key weapons. That, in summary, is the theory that Italian journalist and author Oriana Fallaci exposes in her new book "The Force of Reason". This is a sequel to her 2002 book, "The Rage and The Pride", which amounted to an outpouring of deeply felt anger against Muslims...

She is dying of cancer. And now she is going to go on trial for “defaming Islam.” The complaint comes from Adel Smith, president of the Muslim Union of Italy, who was never charged with defaming Christianity after he referred to a crucifix as a “miniature cadaver” during his 2003 efforts to have depictions of Christ on the Cross removed from Italian schools.[1] He has amassed a reputation...

Fallaci, who lives in New York, was not expected to attend the hearing in Bergamo, northern Italy. Muslim activist Adel Smith filed a lawsuit against Fallaci, charging that some passages in her book, "The Strength of Reason," were offensive to Islam.

Last year, a judge ordered that she stand trial on charges of violating an Italian law that prohibits "outrage to religion."...

Apparently, it's the one-stop shop for all your jihad needs: you can buy audio cassettes at the mosque encouraging you to become a martyr and sally forth to kill "the brothers of pigs and apes" -- i.e. Jews. So somebody filed a racial-incitement complaint and the coppers started looking into it, and then Sweden's chancellor of justice, Goran Lambertz, stepped in. And Mr. Lambertz decided to close down the investigation on the grounds that, even though the porcine-sibling stuff...

    When Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of the noxious South Park, see a taboo, they hasten to break it. So they were sure to weigh in on the controversy over those Danish cartoons depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad. The animated South Park, featuring foul-mouthed children, had long presented Jesus as a sympathetic but comical character. The creators were fresh off a series savaging Scientology as a cult of child-molesters. So Islam was ripe for ridicule. But at the climax of the two-part series—in which the politically correct citizens of South Park literally buried their heads in the sand so...

In these days of Muslims the world over calling for the deaths of those who have “insulted Islam,” anyone who wants to see Oriana Fallaci beheaded need look no further than the Galleria Luciano Inga-Pin in Milan, which is exhibiting Giuseppe Veneziano’s “American Beauty” from January 19 through March 18. This is a series of paintings designed to highlight the “weakness and perversity of the ‘American way of life.’” It accordingly features straightforward, if somewhat lurid, portraits...

    After spending most of the last century fighting against fascism, Oriana Fallaci continues to demonstrate the enduring grip of Orwellianism: she is to be tried in Italy for thought-crime. For spending her childhood fighting Hitler and Mussolini, and for dedicating the last four years of her life to rousing the West to the danger posed by Islamofascism, she more than merits designation as FrontPage Magazine’s Woman of the Year. Oriana Fallaci has rebelled against fascism most of her life. She is not an ideologue, bound to implement any given ideology. Hers is a defensive mission. She is, by her own...

    2. ORIANA FALLACI Kudos to Oriana Fallaci -- the gutsy, outspoken Italian journalist, author, and fearless champion of human freedom -- who has been named winner of the Annie Taylor Award by the Center for the Study of Popular Culture for "exceptional courage against great odds and in the face of great danger." Fallaci, 75, has been fighting the good fight since 1944, when she joined the Italian anti-fascist resistance at age 14, and she has spent most of her life combating and exposing tyrants and murderers from Mussolini and Hitler to Stalin, as well as modern-day oppressors. In recent...

    “We are gathered here tonight,” announced David Horowitz, “to honor a warrior in the cause of human freedom.” Oriana Fallaci, who received the Center for the Study of Popular Culture’s Annie Taylor Award in New York Monday evening, has been a warrior for human freedom ever since she joined the anti-fascist resistance in 1944, at age fourteen. For over six decades, she has fought against those she has labeled “the bastards who decide our lives,” opposing all forms of tyranny and oppression, from Mussolini and Hitler to Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. She amassed a fearsome reputation as...

We are gathered here tonight to honor a warrior in the cause of human freedom. This was once a description of the American identity itself. We are a nation born in liberty and bound to defend it. And so we did in World War I and World War II and then in the Cold War, rescuing...

    I was at a tribute sponsored by Center for Popular Culture (David Horowitz) honoring Oriana Fallaci, the Italian Journalist now living in NYC who has come out strongly against Islam in the post 9/11 world. Attending were Daniel Pipes, who introduced her, Robert Spencer who will be writing about the event in Frontpage, Norman Podhoretz, Frank Gaffney, Phyllis Chessler, John Fund of WSJ, Josh Gerstein of NY Sun, and assorted other who I probably did not recognize. It was an honor to be there. Fallaci is very sick and near death. But you would never know it from the fire...

    Why Oriana Fallaci Received a Papal Audience Part of Benedict XVI's Talks With Intellectuals, Says Auxiliary Bishop ROME, SEPT. 6, 2005 (Zenit.org).- An auxiliary bishop of Rome explained why Benedict XVI granted a private audience to Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci. The Pope's meeting with the 76-year-old journalist -- who has stirred controversy since Sept. 11, 2001, because of her pointed criticisms of Islam -- took place discreetly Aug. 27 in the papal summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, in the hills south of Rome. News of the audience was revealed days later by Italian news sources -- neither Fallaci nor the...

    Vatican, Aug. 31 (CWNews.com) - Vatican officials have confirmed that Pope Benedict XVI (bio - news) met with the controversial Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo on August 27. Although the meeting was not intended to be publicized, friends of Fallaci leaked news of the writer's meeting with the Pontiff, and the Vatican verified the reports. Fallaci has been an outspoken critic of immigration trends in Europe, saying that the demographic trend amounts to an "Islamic invasion." She currently faces charges in Italian courts for allegedly insulting the Islamic faith. Fallaci, who suffers from cancer,...

From the Italian blog Eddyburg (via Romanwanderer) comes the latest...

    On his deathbed, Pope Gregory VII (1020-1085) is reported to have said, "I have loved justice and hated iniquity; therefore I die in exile." Gregory's words might just as well be attributed to his fellow countryman Oriana Fallaci. Wanted for a speech crime in her native Italy, Europe's most celebrated journalist now passes her days in exile in an upper Manhattan townhouse. In May, Fallaci was indicted under a provision of the Italian penal code that criminalizes the "vilification of any religion admitted by the state." Specifically it is charged that her latest book The Force of Reason (due out...

In her mid-70s, stricken with a cancer that, for the moment, permits only the consumption of liquids--so yes, we drank champagne in the course of a three-hour interview--one of the most renowned journalists of the modern era has been indicted by a judge in her native Italy under provisions of the Italian Penal Code which proscribe the "vilipendio," or "vilification," of "any religion admitted by the state." In her case, the religion deemed vilified is Islam, and the vilification was...

    I've read this article. I adore Oriana Fallaci. I've always adored her. There are two turning points in my life: one was September 11th and the second one was September 29th 2001. When I saw the two tower fell down I understood that there was something wrong in the world, and I started to love America because of her love of Life. September 29th I read for the first time the article "The rage and the pride" by Miss Fallaci. I undertood what is the wrong of our world. Since that day, Oriana is me. Her words are mine. I...
