Dr. Pipes , you wrote: "She also has legal headaches. 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, Europe's most celebrated journalist now lives in exile in Manhattan."

It is clear when the Western democracies punish its own citizens for telling the truth about Islam as vilification of that religion, they deserve to perish as will be the outcome in this struggle against Islam. If the government suppress truth, it is involved in coverup but, truth will always tiumph in the end, no matter how much time it takes.

It wa plainly digusting to note that the Italian government would bring this trumped up charge against Oriana Fallaci!! Are there Islamists working in the government who want to convert Vatican into a mosque???
