Oriana Fallaci spent years reporting

Oriana Fallaci spent years reporting from the Arab world and established her reputation by having the nerve to tell the truth about what she saw with her own eyes. She is a paragon of political incorrectness. I vividly recall reading an interview with her in which she discussed Yasser Arafat’s unmistakable pedophilia. (The internet has been abuzz for months with speculation regarding the uses of the ever-present Wet Wipes that appear in photographs of Arafat in his compound.) Ms. Fallaci has written a book regarding the Islamic war on the West that has made her a celebrity (and a defendant) again in Europe. She is now in Washington promoting the publication of her book, and the Washington Times has an interesting account of her remarks at an appearance yesterday: “Italian author slams Islam’s ‘hate’ for West.”
