  • Writer and Journalist Oriana Fallaci dies at 75

    Yesterday in Florence ...
    Maybe not too well known in the Anglo-American countries her works had a considerable impact in her native Italy, but also certainly in Germany, Austria, France and other European countries. This sometimes controversial writer who as a young woman fought the N.azis as a partisan during WWII ranked high among the important minds of the second half of the 20th century. She wasn't easily fed by simplistic explanations and a constant pain in the neck for autocratic decision makers in Italy and elsewhere (ask Henry K.!).
    We'll surely miss Oriana! Please bother to check her up in Wikipedia and see her impressive list of publications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriana_Fallaci

    In France she was too much known for his book about Islam ......

      At the first European Social Forum, which was held in Florence in November 2002, Fallaci invited the people of Florence to shut up every shop and stay in the houses and compared the ESF to the Nazi occupation of Florence
      This amused me. Had she lived in Britain, she would no doubt have written for the Daily Mail!

        She was a strong woman with a sharpened mind, I've no doubt.
