Oriana Fallaci Dies

ROME -- "Veteran journalist and writer Oriana Fallaci, a former war correspondent best known for her abrasive interviews and provocative stances, has died, Italian news reports said Friday. She was 76.

Fallaci, who had been diagnosed with cancer years ago, died in a Florence hospital, the Italian agencies ANSA and Apcom said. The reports said that she had been hospitalized for days.

Fallaci, a former Resistance fighter and war corespondent who was hardly seen in public, had lived in New York for years.

Her recent publications _ including the best-selling book "The Rage and The Pride," which came out weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001 _ drew accusations of inciting hatred against Muslims."

And caused Italy to bring her up on "hate speech" charges. Tsk, tsk-must'nt tick off the terrorists, that's not nice.
I haven't heard anything about her trial since this spring.
I believe it's still ongoing.

Damn, rest in peace, old gal...God knows you deserve it. They never gave you any peace when you were alive. But that's what happens when you damn the torpedoes and speak your mind, fearlessly.

I heard that she wrote to the pope a month ago telling him to condemn Islam. Maybe he took her letter seriously.

Hmmm, that's interesting!
Perhaps he did give her letter some consideration.
