Orianna Fallaci: 1929 - 2006

We've lost a true warrior in the fight for Western Civilization. Orianna Fallaci was a great woman. Unafraid to speak what needed to be spoken. Whether it was about the fascism of 1930's Europe or the fascism of Islam currently waging war on Western Civilization.
ROME -- Oriana Fallaci, the Italian writer and journalist best known for her abrasive interviews and provocative stances, has died, officials said Friday. She was 76.

Fallaci, who had been diagnosed with cancer years ago, died overnight in a private clinic in Florence, said Paolo Klun, an official with the RCS publishing group, which carried Fallaci's work. Klun said Fallaci, who lived in New York, had come back to her hometown days ago as her condition worsened.

Fallaci's recent publications _ including the best-selling book "The Rage and The Pride," which came out weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks _ drew accusations of racism and inciting hatred against Muslims.

"The Rage and The Pride," sold more than 1 million copies in Italy and found a large audience elsewhere in Europe.

Her next essay, "The Strength of Reason," accused Europe of having sold its soul to what Fallaci
described as an Islamic invasion. It also took the Catholic Church to task for being what she considers too weak before the Muslim world.

Describing Europe as "Eurabia," Fallaci said the continent "has sold itself and sells itself to the enemy like a prostitute."

"Europe becomes more and more a province of Islam, a colony of Islam," she wrote.The current invasion, Fallaci went on to say, is not carried out only by the "terrorists who blow up themselves along with skyscrapers or buses" but also by "the immigrants who settle in our home, and who, with no respect for our laws, impose their ideas, their customs, their God."

She was not married and had no children. Information on funeral arrangements was not
immediately available.
Rest in peace, Orianna. May your words be remembered and may the above all be heeded. Other rememberances and tributes can be found at:
