Kissinger later wrote that it was “the single most disastrous conversation I have ever had with any member of the press”.

Fallaci was born in FlorenceItaly, on 29 June She later received a certificate for valour from the Italian army.

Whether it comes from a despotic sovereign or an elected president, from a murderous general or a beloved leader, I see power as an inhuman and hateful phenomenon I have always looked on disobedience toward the oppressive as the only way to use the miracle of having been born.

Oriana Fallaci

Fallaci began her career in journalism during her teens, becoming a special correspondent for the Italian paper Il mattino dell’Italia centrale in For many years, Fallaci was a special correspondent for the political magazine L’Europeoand wrote for a number of leading newspapers and the magazine Epoca.

In Mexico City, during the Tlatelolco massacreFallaci was shot three times by Mexican soldiers, dragged downstairs by her hair, and left for dead. Her eyewitness account became important evidence disproving the Mexican government’s denials that a massacre had taken place. In the early s, Fallaci had a relationship with the subject of one of her interviews, Alexandros Panagouliswho had been a solitary figure in the Greek resistance against the dictatorship, having been captured, heavily tortured and imprisoned for his unsuccessful assassination attempt on dictator and ex-Colonel Georgios Papadopoulos.

Panagoulis died inunder controversial circumstances, in a road accident. Fallaci maintained that Panagoulis was assassinated by remnants of the Greek military junta and her book Un Uomo A Man was inspired by his life. During her interview with Henry Kissinger, Kissinger stated that the Vietnam War was a “useless war” and compared himself to “the cowboy who leads the wagon train by riding ahead alone on his horse”.

During her interview with Ayatollah Khomeinishe addressed him as a “tyrant”, and managed to unveil herself from the chador:. I still have to ask you a lot of things. About the “chador”, for example, which I was obliged to wear to come and interview you, and which you impose on Iranian women I am not only referring to the dress, but to what it represents, I mean the apartheid Iranian women have been forced into after the revolution.


They cannot study at the university with men, they cannot work with men, they cannot swim in the sea or in a swimming-pool with men. They have to do everything separately, wearing their “chador”. By the way, how can you swim wearing a “chador”? None of this concerns you, our customs do not concern you.

If you don’t like the Islamic dress, you are not obliged to wear it, since it is for young women and respectable ladies. This is very kind of you, Imam, since you tell me that, I’m going to immediately rid myself of this stupid medieval rag. After September 11,Fallaci wrote three books critical of Islamic extremists and Islam in general, and in both writing and interviews warned that Europe was “too tolerant of Muslims “. The first book was The Rage and the Pride initially a four-page article in Corriere della Serathe major national newspaper in Italy.

She wrote that “sons of Allah breed like rats”, and in a Wall Street Journal interview inshe said that Europe was no longer Europe but ” Eurabia “. Fallaci died on 15 Septemberin her native Florencefrom cancer. She was buried in the Cimitero Evangelico degli Allori in the southern suburb of FlorenceGalluzzoalongside her family members and a stone memorial to Alexandros Panagoulisher late companion. Fallaci twice received the St. Vincent Prize for journalism Romanzo ; and Prix Antibes,for Inshallah.

She received a D. She was honored for the “heroism and the values” that rendered her “a symbol of the fight against Islamic fascism and a knight of the freedom of humankind”. The Annie Taylor Award is annually awarded to people who have demonstrated unusual courage in adverse conditions and great danger. David Horowitzfounder of the center, described Fallaci as “a General in the fight for freedom”.

On 8 DecemberFallaci was awarded the Ambrogino d’oro [Golden Ambrogino]the highest recognition of the city of Milan. She also received the Jan Karski Eagle Award. The state of her health prevented her from attending the ceremony. She wrote in a speech: My current well known health situation prevents me from traveling and receiving in person this gift that for me, a woman not used to orianaa and not too keen on trophies, has an intense ethical and moral significance”.

Nencini reported that the prize was awarded as Fallaci was a beacon of Tuscan culture in the world. So far my pencil stopped at the image of the camel, but my next attempt will surely be better”.

Fallaci received much public attention for her controversial writings and statements on Islam and European Muslims. Fallaci considered Islamic fundamentalism to be a revival of the fascism she fought against in her youth, that politicians in Europe were misunderstanding the threat of Islam in the same way that their s equivalents misunderstood the threat of German fascism; she denied that “moderate Islam” actually existed, calling it a mendacity.

Fallaci received criticism as well as support in Italy, ee her books have sold over one million copies.

Protest organizers declared, “We have done it for Oriana, because she hasn’t spoken in public for the last 12 years, and hasn’t been laughing in the last 50”.


Italian Minister of Justice Roberto Castelli rejected the request on the grounds that the Constitution of Italy protects freedom of speech. In MayAdel Smithpresident of the Union of Italian Muslimslaunched a lawsuit against Fallaci charging that “some of the things she said in her book The Force of Reason are offensive to Islam”.

Smith’s attorney cited 18 phrases, most notably a reference to Islam as “a pool that never purifies”. The preliminary trial began on 12 June, and on 25 June, Judge Beatrice Siccardi decided that Fallaci should indeed stand trial beginning on 18 December.

Fallaci became, in her last years, staunchly socially conservativeopposing abortion except for rapeeuthanasia, same-sex marriage, and gay adoptions. On 3 JuneFallaci had published on the front page of an Italian daily newspaper a highly controversial article titled ” Noi Cannibali e i figli di Medea ” “We cannibals and Medea’s offspring”urging women not to vote for a public referendum about artificial insemination that was held on 12 and 13 June Although an atheist, [29] Fallaci reportedly had great respect for the Pope and expressed admiration for his essay titled “If Europe Hates Itself”.

In the June issue of Reasonlibertarian writer Cathy Young wrote: Christopher Hitchenswriting in The Atlanticcalled the book “a sort of primer in how not to write about Islam”, describing it as “replete with an obsessive interest in excrement, disease, sexual mania, and insectlike reproduction, insofar as these apply to Muslims in general and to Muslim immigrants in Europe in particular”.
