Fallaci Can’t Go Home

Journalist/author/atheist Oriana Fallaci can’t go home to her native Italy because a jail sentence awaits her there for defaming Islam in her last book, The Force of Reason. Today in the Wall Street Journal’s Opinion Journal, she’s interviewed about the decline of the West. Fallaci says that Europe is killing itself. From the article:

“Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder,” the historian Arnold Toynbee wrote, and these words could certainly be Ms. Fallaci’s. She is in a black gloom about Europe and its future: “The increased presence of Muslims in Italy, and in Europe, is directly proportional to our loss of freedom.” There is about her a touch of Oswald Spengler, the German philosopher and prophet of decline, as well as a flavor of Samuel Huntington and his clash of civilizations.
She remains in New York, where she is safe from the Italian legal system.
