In an extraordinary case of European dhimmitude, the trial of Goddess Fallaci for 'defaming Islam' started yesterday. The Jawa Report has the best coverage here. Read it all, I insist. I saw Fallaci at her last lecture here, read that too.
I predict that the only sound you'll hear coming from the left is deafening silence. The left abandoned true free speech some time ago. A pity, really. There was a time when even the most despicable communist or child molester could count on help from the ACLU to defend his rights.
Clarity and Resolve, a must read BTW:
Just another chunk of the Italian soul being sold for a pittance to the multicult/death cult consortium.
The trial opened Monday in Bergamo, Italy, and quickly was adjourned, according to the Associated Press. It is set to resume June 26. The 75-year-old Fallaci, who also suffers from cancer, faces a possible three-year prison term.
This is the first time a judge has ordered a trial for "defamation of Islam," and some other judges are concerned.
Some intellectuals in her home country also have expressed contempt toward Fallaci. A Milan art gallery featured a portrait of a decapitated Fallaci in a recent exhibit of Giuseppe Veneziano's "American Beauty," a series of paintings designed to highlight the "weakness and perversity of the American way of life." Spencer calls the display an illustration of the "deep affinity between the Left and the forces of global jihad."
