Paris Attacks Confirm Fallaci's Islam Insights

Paris after Muslim gunmen attacked the offices of magazine Charlie Hebdo

These are some of the things that Oriana Fallaci wrote after 9/11. So little has changed that she could have written them now, after the Paris attacks, which also confirm how right she was.


The enemy is in our home

The canard of "moderate" Islam, the comedy of tolerance, the lie of the integration, the farce of multiculturalism continue. And with that, the attempt to make us believe that the enemy consists of a small minority and that small minority lives in distant countries. Well, the enemy is not a small minority. And he's in our home. He's an enemy that at first glance does not look like an enemy. Without a beard, dressed in Western fashion, and according to his accomplices in good or bad faith perfectly-assimilated-into-our-social-system. That is, with a residence permit. With the car. With family. Never mind if the family is often made up of two or three wives, never mind if the wife or wives are constantly beaten up, if he sometimes kills his blue-jeans-wearing daughter, if sometimes his son rapes the 15-year-old Bolognese girl walking in the park with her boyfriend. He is an enemy that we treat as a friend. Who nevertheless hates and despise us with intensity. An enemy whom in the name of humanitarianism and political asylum we welcome in thousands at a time, even though the reception centres are overflowing, bursting, and we no longer know where to put him. An enemy whom, in the name of "necessity" (but what necessity, the necessity to fill our streets with peddlers and drug dealers?), we invite through the Olympus of the Constitution. "Come, dear, come. We need you so much." An enemy who turns mosques into barracks, training camps, recruitment centres for terrorists, and who blindly obeys the imam. An enemy who, thanks to the free movement required by the Schengen Agreement, roams at will across Eurabia, so that to go from London to Marseille, from Cologne to Milan or vice versa he doesn't have to produce any documents. He can be a terrorist who moves around to organise or put into effect a massacre, he can carry all the explosives he wants: no one stops him, no one touches him.

The crucifix will disappear

An enemy who, right after settling in our cities or countryside, engages in bullying and demands free or semi-free housing as well as the right to vote and citizenship. All of which he gets easily. An enemy who imposes his own rules and customs on us. Who attacks the teacher or the principal because a polite schoolgirl kindly offered to her Muslim classmate a rice pancake with Marsala, namely "with a liqueur". And-careful-not-to-repeat-the-insult. An enemy who from kindergartens wants to ban - indeed bans - Nativity scenes and Father Christmas. Who removes the crucifix from the classrooms, throws it out of the windows of hospitals, and defines it as "a naked little corpse put there to scare Muslim children". An enemy who in Britain stuffs his shoes with explosives in order to blow up the Paris-Miami jumbo flight. An enemy who in Amsterdam kills Theo van Gogh, guilty of making documentaries about the slavery of Muslim women, and after killing him opens his belly and sticks into it a letter with the death sentence of his best friend. The enemy, finally, for whom you will always find a lenient magistrate, ready to release him from prison. And whom Eurobean governments (note: this is not a typo, I just mean Eurobean, not European) don't expel even if he is illegal.


  1. Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, released a statement condemning the Charlie Hebdo attack, which he characterized as terrorism, but also called for unity in the face of violence.

    “Freedom of expression and opinion are a cornerstone for any democratic society," Al Hussein said, and those who try "to divide communities on grounds of religion, ethnicity or any other reason must not be allowed to succeed. The rule of law also requires that we seek to arrest and punish those directly responsible for carrying out, planning or acting as accomplices to specific crimes and do not attach blame to any wider group."

    He continued, "If this attack is allowed to feed discrimination and prejudice, it will be playing straight into the hands of extremists whose clear aim is to divide religions and societies. With xenophobia and anti-migrant sentiments already on the rise in Europe, I am very concerned that this awful, calculated act will be exploited by extremists of all sorts."

    The New York Times reports that the attack has come at a "dangerous moment" in Europe, citing the rise of Islamophobic rhetoric and a growing far-right movement which has launched virulent attacks against the continent's immigrant communities, with special ire shown towards those from north Africa and other predominantly Muslim nations in the Middle East. According to the paper:

    As for the killing of Charlie Hebdo staff by two or three gunmen, I hold my head high and say that even though I don't sanction, encourage, or endorse what they did, I'm not going to shed any tears for the vicious, racist, and malevolent victims who were the target of their excess. If a drug dealer gets run over by a car in my neighbourhood, I'm not expected to do a #Je_Suis_Drug_Dealer hash tag on twitter. I have more self-respect than that as a human being and as a Muslim. I do feel some pity for the Charlie Hebdo staff. I feel sorry that they chose to live a life of hate and die a death of hate, and that they could not find the stuff of human goodness in their hearts to do something better than be the Pharonic slave driver whipping the poor Hebrews of French society under their lash. I think there should be a uniform policy against publication of material that hurts religious feelings. Freedom of speech is all very well but with freedom should come responsible behavior or laws to ensure responsible behavior. There are limits to freedom of expression. These guys TRESPASSED them. They paid the fine for doing so.

    The vast majority of terrorist attacks on US soil have been by non-Muslims. The vast majority of terrorist attacks in Europe have been by non-Muslims. And Muslims are more often the victims of terrorism. The Muslims today are a demonized underclass in France. A people vilified and attacked by the power structures. A poor people with little or no power and these vile cartoons made their lives worse and heightened the racist prejudice against them. Even white liberals have acted in the most prejudiced way. It was as if white people had a right to offend Muslims and Muslims had no right to be offended? The difference was, when white people were offended, they had the state, white corporate media and the threat of a right wing mob to make their point — Muslims had nothing.

    1. Iftikhar,
      Why should there be a uniform policy against publication of material that hurts some idiot's feelings?
      Just because some fool feels hurt does not make him right.
      Why cannot Muslims adjust themselves to the essential principles of a civilized society?
      Surely, you do not expect educated Westerners of all colours, not just "white people," as you put it, to start showing deference to Santa Claus and the tooth-fairy?
      If Muslims cannot accept that non-Muslims consider Allah and Mohamed to be ridiculous and malevolent fictions from the literal Dark Ages they should leave the West and make their futures elsewhere.

    2. Westerners of all colours ?
      That is the reason the west is in decline.

    3. What Mr Akhtar is saying is that free speech should be cancelled and hurting the feelings of totalitarians should be punishable by death.

    4. He's one of the fuckwits of society which we need to deal with.

  2. Enza: I will be replying to the long-winded, deceitful creature called Iftikhar Ahmad here after I compose a reply. But, thank you for reprinting Oriana Fallaci's prescient warnings about Muslims. I shall be passing the link to this column on to innumerable friends and allies.

  3. Enza - Thank you for the article.

    Iftikhar Ahmad - I hate the flagrantly evil belief system known as Islam because it demands of its followers that they murder or enslave anyone who disagrees with them.

    Despite cowardly evasion by much of the media of evil acts committed on a daily basis on behalf of Islam, the evidence for such acts pours in from around the world.

    Whether it's whipping someone in Saudi Arabia for insulting Islam or slaughtering Christians in Nigeria or demanding and inflicting death for apostasy in Pakistan or machine gunning journalists in Paris or...,on and on, no amount of cheap half wit lies can cover up the evil.

    That some Islamics do not commit such acts may reflect the possibility that they retain the tiniest shred of human decency or that they are simply too cowardly to plunge into the Islam drivern orgy of murdering anyone who disagrees with you.

    Witness the followers of Islam who, if not busy murdering Christians and Jews, will find religious fulfillment by killing members of another Islamic sect.

    The world is at war. It's being fought intellectually and morally, and sometimes as a 'shooting war', between those who value freedom and individual rights and those, particularly followers of Islam, who worship slavery and death.

    The war will go on until one side or the other simply ceases to exist.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. Iftikhar Ahmad’s response was so riddled with lies and crudely constructed taqiyya that I would be all night rebutting each and every one of his bilious assertions. I shall save a thorough trouncing of his rant for a special column on Rule of Reason. So here I shall just dwell on his last paragraph, which states that, in opposing Islam and its murderous depredations, the West is engaging in a “race war.”

    Mr. Ahmad should know better, better than most of our politicians. Islam is not a race. It is totalitarianism in the guise of a primitive religion whose adherents are “Arabic,” black, Asian, and white. . “Islamophobia” is not a synonym for “racial bigotry.” It is a term, coined by Islamists, for a fear of Islam, the phobia being a fear of being a murdered victim of Islamic jihadists, whatever their ethnicity. I might remind Mr. Ahmad that Boko Haram in Nigeria has slaughtered thousands of fellow blacks in the name of Islam, and the Chechnyan jihadists wage terrorism on fellow white Russians in the name of Islam.

    Mr. Ahmad prefaced his comments with an argumentative fallacy: an argument from authority. I will dwell on that in my column. However the person he quoted was “Prince” Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the Jordanian representative to the U.N. He omitted the honorific “Prince.” That’s a sign of “disrespect.” I think the Prince should decree a fatwa on Mr. Ahmad’s head.

    Mr. Ahmad should repair to Amazon Books and look up my two novels about the insidious designs of Islam, “The Black Stone” and “We Three Kings.” My “Islam’s Reign of Terror” is a chronology of Islam’s most recent depredations, together with an examination of why Islam is evil, totalitarian, and profoundly irrational, on a par in its anti-reason “logic” as is Nazism. All are available as print books, as audio books, and on Kindle. They sell every well. Or, if Mr. Ahmad isn’t in a bookish mood, he can read my two most recent columns on Islam on Rule of Reason: “Paris: City of Darkness” or “The Establishment’s Anti-Reality Check,” both pegged to the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

    Any one or all of my suggestions to Mr. Ahmad should have him sputtering angrily like Donald Duck.

  6. I think it is a great for hundreds of thousands and millions tomorrow to stand up to islamic terrorism. But, I don't get the impression the attitudes towards islam and its followers have changed. The elites and media have been repeating the same narrative. The terrorism is caused by poverty, racism, oppression these people have suffered from the west. Hopefully, more and more citizens are seeing beyond this narrative; such as PEGI DA in Germany. The terrorist attacks will continue until we get rid of the no go zones, stop giving in to their demands, and cease unrestrained islamic immigration. Although a couple of commentators in US radio stated this cannot be done because of secret agreements and money from wealthy muslim nations. Similar to what Bat Yeor stated in her book Eurabia. My final thought is the Pope was probably right in November when he visited a WWI italian military cemetary. We are close to the beginning of WW3 and this time they will come for the christians. I don't want my daughter and grandaughters to be moslems.

  7. Ahmad, I'm going to cut to the chase, because I'm not interested in playing your little word game. You posture as an offended innocent member of an unjustly maligned Great Religion of the World.

    You are not.

    Your Allah does not exist. Your Muhammad probably did not exist, but if he did he was no "holy prophet" but a savage marauding warlord consolidating his power by swooping down on the camel caravans of those he intended to subjugate, having learned that the success of his "religion" would come through the terror of the scimitar. You are riding through life with him, bouncing along atop your camel, pausing occasionally to venture behind a sand dune, and you are not able to use your bare left hand for much of anything because of what you do with it there. For centuries to come, this pattern of behavior will alter very little except to be augmented by the technology you acquire from your more advanced enemies at the same time your "holy men" continue to jabber nonsense a third-grade science class could refute. However, you and your fellow denizens of the "umma" have forgotten who has the scimitars -- and the kalasnikovs, underwear bombs, sticks and stones -- and who has the nuclear arsenal. I sincerely hope you will give those of us in the truly civilized world reason to remind you of that some time in the not too distant future -- because this madness has gone far enough, too far in fact -- and that when the smoke has cleared you will be one less problem with which we have to concern ourselves. At the very least I hope to see you shipped by the millions -- because you savages really should not be allowed on planes -- back to whence you that you can return to the joys of your own "culture" and stop trying to destroy ours.

    By the way, since either it was omitted from your education or you just think you can continue to jerk the kuffar guilt reflex around with it, Islam is not a "race". It is a pernicious ideology that has been allowed to rampage through the West for far too long.

    That's about it, Ahmad. If you are "offended" by this, rest assured that I do not give a rodent's

    Have a nice day.


    1. What famous non-Muslims said about Islam and Prophet Muhammad PBUH

      Napoleon Bonaparte

      I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of Quran which alone are true and which alone can lead men to happiness.

      Sir George Bernard Shaw

      I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity.

      I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today.

      H.G. Wells

      The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behaviour, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it… Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity.

      Phillip Haiti

      During all the first part of the Middle Ages, no other people made as important a contribution to human progress as did the Arabs, if we take this term to mean all those whose mother-tongue was Arabic, and not merely those living in the Arabian peninsula. For centuries, Arabic was the language of learning, culture and intellectual progress for the whole of the civilized world with the exception of the Far East. From the 9th to the 12th century there were more philosophical, medical, historical, religious, astronomical and geographical works written in Arabic than in any other human tongue.

      R. Bosworth Smith

      He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without Pope’s pretensions, Caesar without the legions of Caesar: without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue; if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammed, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports. He cared not for the dressings of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life.

      Sarojini Naidu

      It was the first religion that preached and practised democracy; for, in the mosque, when the call for prayer is sounded and worshippers are gathered together, the democracy of Islam is embodied five times a day when the peasant and king kneel side by side and proclaim: ‘God Alone is Great’

      Dr. William Draper

      Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born in Mecca, in Arabia, the man who, of all men, has exercised the greatest influence upon the human race… To be the religious head of many empires, to guide the daily life of one-third of the human race, may perhaps justify the title of a Messenger of God.

      Thomas Carlyle

      The lies (Western slander) which well-meaning zeal has heaped round this man (Muhammad) are disgraceful to ourselves only.

      A silent great soul, one of that who cannot but be earnest. He was to kindle the world, the world’s Maker had ordered so.

      A. S. Tritton

      The picture of the Muslim soldier advancing with a sword in one hand and the Qur’an in the other is quite false.

      De Lacy O’Leary

      History makes it clear, however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myths that historians have ever repeated.

    2. All the admirers of Mohammad the Bandit, Rapist, and Killer, cited by Ahmad as first-line authorities on Islam: Sir George Bernard Shaw: Fabian Socialist.; Napoleon: tyrant, power-luster; H.G. Wells: Fabian Socialist; Guy Phillip Haiti: thug, killer; R. Bosworth Smith: delusional historian, Orientalist; Sarojini Naidu: Gandhi cohort, political power luster; Dr. William Draper: a better photographer than historian; Thomas Carlyle: collectivist, early socialist; De Lacy O’Leary: Orientalist, romantisizer of Islam and Arab culture. I raise my PHOOEY against your PBUH.

  8. Enza: See my column, "A Reply to a Muslim Caliban" here.

    I see that the jCaliban is back. It's all about him, isn't it? Quoting from "authority." Can't come up with anything original.


    I'm sure Fallaci, a fellow-traveler of the Zionists, would have approved of a little home-grown artistry to bolster public support for the next neo-con adventure. Perhaps these attacks - Sydney, Ottawa, Paris - are the lead-up to the much desired attack on Iran, stymied in the past by Obama.
