The new Fallaci book, treatise really, is a MUST READ, yesterday. We must put it on the bookshelves of our children and our left-wing-war-loving (always under the guise of peace) professors.
The censure and legal proceedings against Fallaci in Eurabia is incomprehensible. It is beyond the grasp of the American mind.
I mean Switzerland. That Switzerland where the sons of Allah are now more numerous and more arrogant than at Mecca. And where in 1995 the Article 261b of the Criminal Code was written for their benefit. (The Article which allows a Muslim immigrant to win any ideological or private lawsuit by invoking religious racism and racial discrimination. [As in] "He- didn't- -chase-me- -because- -I'm- -a- thief- -but- because- I'm- a- Muslim"
Quoting the Article 261b, in fact, through the Swiss Embassy in Rome in November 2002 the Berne Federal Office of Justice [oh these names, these euphemisms -Atlas] dared to ask the Italian government to extradite me or to open legal proceedings against me for the content [of her book] The Rage and The Pride. Proceedings requested by Muslim groups like the Islamic Center of Berne, the Somali Association of Geneva, the SOS Racism of Lausanne and Islamic immigrants living in the town of Neuchatel.[...]
Judgments, they said, sustained by ideas which "endanger public peace [that fucking word again, they use that word like a $2 whore - Atlas] and generate hate among those who believe in the clash of civilizations".
The request was denied because the Italian constitution guarantees the right to free thought but what was even more incredulous was this;
[...] Switzerland is not the only country where I risk to end behind bars. Most of Europe, in fact, has become a possible threat. Do you know why? Because the European Union exercises a perversion called European Arrest Warrant. And the European Arrest Warrant is a mandate which not only permits any European country to arrest and keep in jail any citizen belonging to the Union: it is an abuse which permits to impose the extradition from his or her own homeland.
This is staggering. For criminals and felons, it's one thing. But for the crime of thought?
America must pay attention and stop assigning so much credence to the EU. They are fini. Finished.And stop pandering to the notion of liberal guilt. Read this so that you better understand the liberal pathology.
Of course the sick irony is Fallaci has been indicted by a judge in her native Italy under provisions of the Italian Penal Code which proscribe the "vilipendio," or "vilification," of "any religion admitted by the state." And so she resides in the states.
Interestingly enough, Fallaci seemed perplexed that a leftist Jewish association "Licra" supported a trial against her in Paris. A trial promoted for xenophobia, blasphemy, instigation to hatred of Islam. She should not have been shocked. These Jews here and here are Jews in name only, I assure you, it's right vs.
The book is riveting. It's truth unadorned. So let this serve as a warning, I continue to excerpt this book, and Cassandra will not be talking to the wind. She will be heard, she will be given voice and her voyage will not have been in vain. The union must be saved. To be continued, count on it.
EURABIA UPDATE: Infidel Bloggers Alliance wrote in tonight that the Telegraph relieved editor Sarah Sands of her duties as editor after only nine months. Now she is claiming that she was released because of an article that she published unfavorable to Islam
Sarah Sands was fired as editor of the Sunday Telegraph on March 7, 2006.
Now she claims that it was because she published an "Islamophobic" article... which was later yanked!Sarah Sands will be replaced by Patience Wheatcroft as editor of The Sunday Telegraph.
Infidel Blogger Alliance has much more on the story.
The Sunday Herald reported that Sarah Sands had been removed but gave no reason for her departure from the Telegraph.
Infidel Bloggers has that original article. It was also republished at the Coalition Against Global Terrorism. The article was later removed from the Telegraph UK site because of concerns of "legal action".
