Italian Author On Trial For "Defaming Islam"

Italian author to be tried for defaming Islam

Italian author and veteran journalist Oriana Fallaci goes on trial Monday, charged with defaming Islam in a 2004 book. Fallaci, who lives in New York, was not expected to attend the hearing in Bergamo, northern Italy.

Muslim activist Adel Smith filed a lawsuit against Fallaci, charging that some passages in her book, "The Strength of Reason," were offensive to Islam. Smith's lawyer cited a phrase from the book that refers to Islam as "a pool ... that never purifies." [That's putting it mildly]
Fallaci told The Associated Press last year that "I have expressed my opinion through the written word through my books, that is all."

Sooooooooooo...what was the reaction to her "defaming islam"? An exhibit of a CARTOON (remember the mohammed cartoon riots?) of her...beheaded. Such a peaceful religion that islam.

“In Europe, we are seeing the birth of a movement that is looking to silence those who don’t follow a single mindset, within which it is forbidden to speak ill of Islam….” much more is gonna take for Europe the World to say enough is enough?

I'm offended that muslims are so easily offended. Can I sue them?

Come on, you paleoconservative Neanderthal. The thread title made it sound like she's being charged with a crime. Anybody can sue anybody ova anything! Of course this Smith person (what kind of Islamic name is that anyway?) could always get a fatwa against her.
