|Read Book Ù The Rage and the Pride ⚤ With The Rage and the Pride Oriana Fallaci breaks a ten year silence The silence she kept until Septembers apocalypse in her Manhattan house She breaks it with a deafening noise In Europe this book has caused and causes a turmoil never registered in decades Polemics, discussion, debates, hearty consents and praises, wild attacks With her well known courage Oriana Fallaci faces the themes unchained by the Islamic terrorism the contrast and, in her opinion, incompatibility between the Islamic world and the Western world the global reality of the Jihad and the lack of response, the lenience of the West With her brutal sincerity she hurls pitiless accusations, vehement invectives, and denounces the uncomfortable truths that all of us know but never dare to express With her rigorous logic, lucidity of mind, she defends our culture and blames what she calls our blindness, our deafness, our masochism, the conformism and the arrogance of the Politically Correct With the poetry of a prophet like a modern Cassandra she says it in the form of a letter addressed to all of usThe text is enriched by a dramatic preface in which Oriana Fallaci reveals how The Rage and the Pride was born, grew up, and detachedly calls it my small book In addition, a preface in which she tells significant episodes of her extraordinary life and explains her unreachable isolation, her demanding and inflexible choices Because of this too, what she calls my small book is in reality a great book A precious book, a book that shakes our conscience It is also the portrait of a soul Her soul No doubt it will remain as a thorn pierced inside our brains and our hearts An earlier book by Fallaci, written in the wake of the September 11 attacks Surprising in its venom and lack of coherence Fallaci may have given vent to her own hatred of Islam but, like The Force of Reason, which I read earlier, this book cannot be regarded seriously as an argument Aside from some factual errors, it completely dispenses with any notion of objectivity to present a position which is almost embarrassing in its one sidedness If we were living in the 1930s and the subject was Je An earlier book by Fallaci, written in the wake of the September 11 attacks Surprising in its venom and lack of coherence Fallaci may have given vent to her own hatred of Islam but, like The Force of Reason, which I read earlier, this book cannot be regarded seriously as an argument Aside from some factual errors, it completely dispenses with any notion of objectivity to present a position which is almost embarrassing in its one sidedness If we were living in the 1930s and the subject was Jews rather than Muslims, Fallaci would be a definite forerunner of Hitler s anti semitism In fact, her treatment of Muslims echoes some of Hitler s positions on Jews Embarrassing that a Western intellectual who actually remembers World War II quite well should come up with such a screed Embarrassing and troubling The late Italian journalist and political interviewer Oriana Fallaci has always been noted for her hard hitting, trenchant social criticism, and for some The Rage and Pride could be seen as nothingthan an angry rant in the wake of the 9 11 atrocities Sometimes we may think, write, or say things in the heat of the moment when emotions are running high that we later regret Well, Fallaci is having none of it She doesn t hold back, and had nothing to apologize for She writes wholeheartedly The late Italian journalist and political interviewer Oriana Fallaci has always been noted for her hard hitting, trenchant social criticism, and for some The Rage and Pride could be seen as nothingthan an angry rant in the wake of the 9 11 atrocities Sometimes we may think, write, or say things in the heat of the moment when emotions are running high that we later regret Well, Fallaci is having none of it She doesn t hold back, and had nothing to apologize for She writes wholeheartedly in her scathing attack condemning the war being waged by Islamic zealots like the now rotting in hell bin Laden Now here s the thing, if she can be called a racist, which she constantly was, and I agree with about 90% of what she has to say here, does that then make me one it seems nowadays just about everything is deemed racist, like voting for a white person to win one of those stupid TV talent shows, or not employing someone from an ethnic minority Maybe it s simply down to the fact the other applicants were better suited Just for the record, not that I should feel like having to defend myself like did Fallaci, but I do happen to have friends from different cultures This book isn t an attack on multiculturalism or Muslims but on the ever so real threat posed by Terrorism and all the hate that goes hand in hand with it Added to her fury is that the west is partly to blame, where certain Countries seemed to be half asleep or just turning a blind eye bearing in mind this is 2001 when dealing with known Islamic extremists There are many things here I just won t bother going into detail on, in case Fallaci s views starts to rattle a few cages But this is for me at least the free world, and it s great I get to voice my opinion here without the threat of being stoned to death in the morning This is a brave, honest, and unflinching piece of writing Sure it s controversial, but only for those who refuse the truth She basically had the guts to write openly what millions of others at the time were just thinking but afraid to say With a rare courage and honesty, Oriana Fallaci shinest the light of the truth and candid scrutiny on her country and the world breaking a ten year silence after the horrific terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001.A modern day version of Emile Zola s J Accuse, Fallaci steps in boldly where most fear to tread, exposing the truths that all of us know but all fear to speak Fallaci writes that this book was an effort to open the eyes of those who do not want to see, to unplug the ear With a rare courage and honesty, Oriana Fallaci shinest the light of the truth and candid scrutiny on her country and the world breaking a ten year silence after the horrific terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001.A modern day version of Emile Zola s J Accuse, Fallaci steps in boldly where most fear to tread, exposing the truths that all of us know but all fear to speak Fallaci writes that this book was an effort to open the eyes of those who do not want to see, to unplug the ears of those who do not want to listen, to ignite the thoughts of those who do not want to think She does this admirably She attacks Islamic fundamentalists and the arrogance of the politically correct elite whom she refers to as the cicadas.Fallaci was a teenage partisan during the Second World War, fighting Mussolini s Fascist regime in Italy and was an intrepid journalist for decades, covering many wars and struggles Fallaci writes of the frightening Islamic terror network which is growing like a cancer in Europe, protected by the politically correct Left, who manipulate or deny the evidence.She writes of her pride in her Italian culture and swears that if Moslem terrorists destroy any of her countrie s landmarks and treasures I swear It is I who would become the holy warriorWar you wanted War you want As far as I am concerned war is war and war will be Until the last breath If their werepeople like Fallaci in the West and Israel, we could certainly win the battle against the Islamo Nazis and their cheerleaders on the international left.Fallaci aptly points out the reasons for Islamic terror Dont you see that all these Ousamas Bin Laden consider themselves authorized to kill you and your children because you drink alcohol, because you don t grow the long beard and refuse the chador or the burkah, because you go the theater and to the movies, because you love music and sing a song, because you dance and watch television, because you wear the miniskirt or the shorts, because on the beach and by the swimming pool you sunbathe or almost naked or naked, because you make love when you want or with whom you want She also attacks the politically correct hypocrites of the left who in the name of Humanitarianism revere the invaders and slander the defenders, absolve the delinquents and condemmn the victims, weep for the Taleban and curse the Americans, forgive the Palestinians for every wrong and the Israelis for nothing.You HAVE to read this book if you want to understand the great struggles the world is faced with at the dawn of the 21st century Well, I respected the author s passion blind passion, intolerant passion and the literary style was good But she was racist And demagogic And arrogant And disrespecful She identified the caleidoscopic world of Islam and its multiple cultures with only one possible Islam that of the female mutilation in Somalia and the fanaticism of Osama bin Laden.Nevertheless, there s something I admired Fallaci was out speaking her heart, absolutely ignoring the politically correct In a world ful Well, I respected the author s passion blind passion,

politically correct In a world full of hypocrisy, that s something I appreciated Just because of that, I would have rated her book withthat just two stars only that, by doing so, I would feel I might be cooperating with her racist message
