Oriana Fallaci Dies
Richard Fernandez writes "The darkness came and yet the darkness claimed her not."
Michael Ledeen remembers Fallaci as the lioness she was.
As a child during World War II, Oriana Fallaci stood with the Brits and resisted Fascists in her native Italy. As a woman and a journalist she dared to confront and expose evil and powerful men. As an atheist, she revered Christianity's gifts of reason, love, and freedom. And as a defender of Western Civilisation, she attacked the murderous irrationality of violent Islamists and spoke bluntly about her concern that immigration was threatening Italy's freedoms. Italy intended to imprison her for daring to speak her mind.
We remember her courage and passion and words of warning.
HERE we examine the threat posed by violent Islamists, and suggest our response.
