The Rage and the Pride - Oriana Fallaci
Just finished this 'little book' by Oriana Fallaci... It's an excellent article she wrote after 911, about the islamic invasion of Europe, and more specifically Italy. Here's a little excerpt about 12 'impure men', all 'sons of allah' who were executed in Dacca Bangladesh in 1975:
"They executed them in the stadium, with bayonet stabs in the thorax, and at the presence of twenty thousand believers who sitting in the tribunes prayed Allah akbar, Allah-akbar. God is great, God is great... Oh, yes: I hear very well what you are thinking. The ancient Romans, you are thinking, those Romans of whom my culture is so proud, used to amuse themselves with watching Christians being eaten by lions. All over Europe the Catholics, those Catholics whose contribution to the History of Thought I acknowledge and respect, used to amuse themselves with watching the heretics burn alive. But a lot of time has passed by, in the meantime we have become a little more civilized, and even the sons of Allah should have understood that such things must not occur. Yet they do. After the impure young men, they killed a ten-year-old child who in order to save one of the condemned, his brother, had thrown himself on the executioners. Don't hurt him, don't hurt him. They crushed his head with the heels of the heavy boots."
