Required reading

I've just finished reading Oriana Fallaci's The Force of Reason, her follow-up to The Rage and The Pride. Both books should be required reading for all.

In Rage, pounded out in the weeks immediately following 9/11, Ms. Fallaci informs us of the extent to which Europe is giving itself over to Muslim extremism. In Reason, she expands on this theme, citing extensively work already done by Bat Ye'or in Eurabia.

The entire Western world owes Oriana Fallaci a debt of gratitude for her courageous work. With any kind of luck, more people in the West will read these two books and realize just how great a debt.
