Try Not To Piss Off Oriana Fallaci.

I'm just starting the Fourth Chapter of The Force of Reason, and all I can say is, I Love Oriana Fallaci.
This woman has more balls than most any man in Europe today. She may be tougher than most American men, she is tougher than most American Liberals. The reason is not a lack of fear, it is something more important. She is afraid of the growth of Islam, the bowing down to Islam, by the left, and the tolerance of Islam by people who should know better. It is just that she's not afraid to say what needs to be said about Islam and those who help it.
From the end of the first Chapter:

What sense would there be in destroying the treasures of a society that in the substance already belongs to them? A society where the Koran in the new Das Kapital. Mohammed, the new Karl Marx. Bin Laden, the new Lenin. And September 11 the new Taking of the Bastille, of the Winter Palace.

Powerful stuff, made all that more troubling by the fact that as I'm readng this book on the bus last night, I was doing so in the line of vision of a woman in a chador. Now I wasn't sure she saw what I was reading, but she was staring a hole thru me and my little blue book.

I'm not done reading it, but I can say that from what I've read, BUY IT.
