Italian author to be tried for defaming Islam
By ASSOCIATED PRESS
ROME

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] :rolleyes:
Fallaci told The Associated Press last year that "I have expressed my opinion through the written word through my books, that is all."

“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….” :tape:
