She made sense....

Reader comment on item: Appreciating Oriana Fallaci

Submitted by Margaret (United States), Dec 19, 2013 at 16:53

"She was on trial twice in France in 2002 and was brought up on charges in Italy in May 2005. She was indicted under a provision of the Italian penal code that criminalizes the "vilification of any religion admitted by the state." Specifically, it states that The Force of Reason "defames Islam." One might therefore say that, wanted for a speech crime in her native country"

No wonder she said the west will lose. Europe is nothing more then dictatorship and for it gets what it deserves....
