Anti-Islamic Italian author in new legal fight

forzaThe author foresees a “clash of civilisations” such as that defined in Samuel P Huntington’s 1998 work of that name. But, she adds, “it annoys me even to talk about two cultures, to put them on the same plane”. Her main theme is that Muslims are engaged in a plot to conquer her native continent by immigration, transforming it into what she dubs “Eurabia”.

“Europe becomes more and more a province of Islam, a colony of Islam,” she writes. “In each of our cities lies a second city: a Muslim city, a city run by the Koran. A stage in the Islamic expansionism.”

(A useful article on the Oriana Fallaci case, though the case is hardly “new” and Huntington’s book was published in 1996.)
