Incitement Watch: Pipes Appreciates ‘Spirit’ of Islam-Hater

November 30, 2005


ACTION REQUESTED:

http://www.nysun.com/article/23705

Frail, slight, and dying of cancer, Oriana Fallaci told a Manhattan audience on Monday that she hates Islam and fears that Muslim immigration poses a greater danger to the West than Islamic terrorism.

The Italian journalist and author, who came out of retirement after September 11, 2001, to sound the tocsin on what she viewed was a clash of civilizations, said in a lengthy speech that she doesn't believe in the existence of moderate Islam.

"There is no such thing as good Islam," she said, crouching over a microphone, her voice tobacco-cured, her English heavily accented. She compared the Koran, the Islamic holy book, to Hitler's "Mein Kampf" and said she opposed the notion of dialogue between followers of Islam and other religions. . .

She received a standing ovation when she was introduced and slightly less enthusiastic applause when she finished speaking. Some of the audience had left during her speech. . .

Daniel Pipes, who was also in the audience, said he appreciated her "spirit" but said her position was too extreme.
