There's a lot that she talks about in this book, but I think I understand her best when she points to "the presumption and assumption of holding the Truth by the Left. Its dogmatism" as the unforgivable sin of the Left.
Meaning this: They want to put us in an intellectual ghetto of inferiority, where freedom of speech would be irrelevant, useless, since we would be outside society altogether. It is a Holocaust of the soul.
Sep 25, Natan rated it it was ok Shelves: current-events. Read the Hebrew translation. This book is like a long, long, emotional, rant, despite its name. I think it probably does more damage to its cause than help because the hysteric tone makes it that much easier to criticize. That's a pity, because Fallaci writes about important topics in today's world, and her basic idea is true - Europe is or maybe has been turning into Eurabia with the assistance, whether intentional or not, of an unholy alliance of weak governments, ultra-left intelligentsia, t Read the Hebrew translation.
That's a pity, because Fallaci writes about important topics in today's world, and her basic idea is true - Europe is or maybe has been turning into Eurabia with the assistance, whether intentional or not, of an unholy alliance of weak governments, ultra-left intelligentsia, the media, the Church, Muslim immigrants and governments, terrorist organizations and anti-Semites. The best part of the book is probably the epilogue, where she gives her theory as to why it happened although I don't go to the extent of blaming calculators and electric stoves , and why, maybe, there still is hope, at least in America if not in Europe.
Apr 14, Josh Kienzle rated it did not like it Recommends it for: not really anyone. This book is not what I expected. It was really racist and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. An incredibly biased, racist, one-sided and selective account. Reading it was a real challenge, but not in a positive sense of the word. Jun 09, Robert Bor rated it it was amazing. It is a rare thing for passion to jump right off the pages of a book to touch the heart of the reader. For Oriana Fallaci, it is but second nature. She seems incapable of writing without passion.
Her entire work is impregnated with righteous anger and bare, honest emotion. But make no mistake, lucidity suffers none of it. The history of this woman, regrettably deceased in after her final struggle with cancer, is illustrious. Before she became a writer, she gained renown as an interviewer, th It is a rare thing for passion to jump right off the pages of a book to touch the heart of the reader.
Before she became a writer, she gained renown as an interviewer, thoroughly grilling powerful men among them Kissinger, Arafat and Khomeini with questions many would not even dare think of. She just posed them, not accepting any evasive maneuvers. Christopher Hitchens eulogizes her in his article , bringing to life a powerful, passionate woman.
Not that her struggle with cancer diminished any of her fervor. Almost on the contrary. She blasted away, as if this was the last chance to save the civilized world from the double threat of islam and the multiculturalists. Which it well might have been. Mrs Fallaci vividly describes how the stream of newcomers to her native Italy have changed the landscape. Contrary to most western immigrants and a lot of non-western immigrants, islamic immigrants do not integrate very well, if at all.
Instead, the followers of the islam demand that their surroundings adjust to their islamic law, the shariah. The examples she comes up with are from the beginning of this century. If anything happened in between, it is that these examples have become much more pronounced now than they were back then. Instead of standing up to these demands made by the followers of the islam, they are facilitated. The group of people guilty to this behaviour consists mostly of socialist, communist oriented people, although the right did not confront this "wisdom", effectively approving the approach. The movement to take in other cultures has grown to religious proportions, no longer susceptible to reason, nor logic.
It just trundles on, a slow unstoppable behemoth. And woe those who dare to oppose the Creed. A mark of shame is pinned on you, leading to social pariahood. The author herself has experienced this, as do many nowadays who oppose jihad. The book contains a lot of anecdotes, even one not so flattering about the late heavyweight boxing champion, Cassius Clay aka Muhammed Ali. Obviously, Mrs Fallaci has travelled a lot and has spent her time well to overthink the things she has seen and experienced.
The book reads pleasantly and for those who dare to open their eyes and See it contains a clear, coherent view of the events that are happening to us in Europe right now. Ravaged by cancer, Mrs Fallaci still found the strength to demand of us to grow a spine, find our inner courage, the same courage our ancestors drew upon, and stand up to the third totalitarian threat to Europe, right after Fascism and Communism; Islam.

In recent years she made h How symbolic is it that Oriana Fallaci, Italian journalist and author, passed away on the same week that Pope Benedict made his remarks about Islam, sparking the fury of Muslims worldwide and forcing him to make several public apologies to soothe the "hurt feelings" of the world's second-biggest religion. In recent years she made headlines mostly as a result of her tireless tirades against the Islamisation of Europe or "Eurabia" in her words. In "Reason", Fallaci tells the readers about the numerous death threats she received as a result of her comments in the first book.
She identifies herself with Master Cecco, who was put to the stake by the Inquis ition on account of his beliefs and heretical writings. Fallaci writes with passion but does not allow this passion to shadow the "force of reason" when examining the trends in her homeland. She writes in the first person, often addressing the reader directly, and I found her Italian to be fascinating and rich.
I wonder how many of the offended Muslims, who attacked Christians and burnt down churches, paused to think how by their actions they are proving the accuracy of the Byzantine emperor's observations As Harris puts it, "a cult of death is forming in the Muslim world". Aug 12, Stoyan Stoyanov rated it did not like it Shelves: political-science-politics. Why did I do this to myself?
I guess because I am doing research on the monotheistic religions and somehow came upon this book in the library. This is an utterly atrocious diatribe against Islam. Fallaci may have had some legitimate points to make about cultural anxieties caused by mass Muslim migration to Christian Europe. However, she surrenders any shred of legitimacy or, indeed, coherence, in this over-the-top rant. I am surprised someone actually published this. If you seek serious argument Why did I do this to myself? If you seek serious argument, stay away from this book.

In molti amano "prendere le distanze" dall'ultima Fallaci, quella senza elmetto, ma impegnata comunque in una guerra per lei di vitale importanza. Ammiro chi ha il coraggio di andarle contro, ma non chi "prende le distanze", come se l'Oriana fosse stata portatrice di un virus riprovevole. Sono gli schiaffi che si danno a una persona che sviene per farla tornare cosciente, schiaffoni sonori che non servono per ferire ma per risvegliare. La Fallaci ha avuto il coraggio di dire le cose come stanno, di fare a pezzi quell'odioso perbenismo e quell'atteggiamento politically correct che quasi tutti assumono quando si parla di Islam.
Coloro che con sdegno bollano questo libro come il rantolo di una vecchia razzista incattivita, sono misteriosamente incapaci di ammettere che nel mondo esiste un problema che non viene affrontato seriamente, per paura di offendere la barba di Maometto e i suoi infiammabili seguaci. Feb 13, Daniel rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone. Oriana Fallaci is my new hero! It feels so refreshing to learn that there are more people who think like me and I don't live alone among blind fools, coz in these days I had that feeling more and more often.
This book looks out at some really painful social and political issues, and it's hard not to feel anger and resentment of what has happened in Europe lately. Even more, our po Oriana Fallaci is my new hero! Even more, our politicians encourage it by accepting in our lands more and more of the so-called refugees every year. Its outrages how in present days this disease has spread in every European country. For example, here in Germany the situation is out of control, with every Main Street in the cities looking like ghetto. There is a massive wave of Muslim Honor Killings during the last two years, but it seems that nobody pays attention.
Also, it seems that no one remembers the New Year's Eve mass rapes in Cologne, which took place in front of one of the most emblematic cathedral n Europe. The biggest paradox is that in this same cathedral, and like in many others in Germany, you can buy bright orange scarves with the loud sign "Welcome Refugees! I wonder if the victims or their relatives had such orange scarves and whether they still wear them with the same pride. There is still much more to say about it, but I will stop here. I can only hope that in a future America and Russia will be so welcoming to the European refugees, as we are now to the muslims.
Feb 28, Izabella Kosiba rated it it was amazing. I am completely speechless. Well, not completely, but let's just say that my breath has been taken away which is why I have resorted to pass on my words through this keyboard. I'm not usually the person who is interested in non-fictional books, especially ones that involve political affairs. But, since this book was passed on to me as a great recommendation, I thought why not? And although the cover of the book was just in plain, solid colour which didn't give me enough to judge the book by Wow.
And although the cover of the book was just in plain, solid colour which didn't give me enough to judge the book by its cover I know, its terrible but I do it , it was something about the author, that compelled me to read the first page. Oh Fallaci! What have you done to me?! With her strong voice and character, at no means does she hold back her thoughts, opinions and beliefs - as an aspiring journalist it is who I exactly strive to be - to confess my truth with no filter onto white, crisp paper. Although I do not agree with all of Fallaci's disputes and statements, I do believe that her message should be conveyed onto today's generations.
Throughout my confused and often-aided-with-a-dictionary-reading of the book, my mind often trailed from the words on the page to the question: If Fallaci would see the state of today's World, today's Europe That we have betrayed her, betrayed humanity? Her hopes gone with the wind due to our ignorance and subjection to one perspective and one perspective only? This book really makes you think and think once again about your present, the people you converse with and the silent terrors that creep behind our backs.
Jul 26, Renee rated it liked it Shelves: islam , politics-current-events-history , religion. Oriana Fallaci is very angry and that comes across loud and clear in her second book of a three book series, The Force of Reason. So loud and clear that I had to literally put down the book several times before finishing it because that anger was so infectious.
Finishing this book was very difficult for me - I was struggling with it for over half a year. Fallaci writes very passionately, and you can't deny that she suffered a lot of hardships because of her beliefs. But her experiences made her views very unjust.

If you really hate the idea of Muslims flowing into Europe, this book will give you more points to use in debates, or the situations described in the book will simply infuriate you. If your opinions are more moderate, like mine, this book may rep Finishing this book was very difficult for me - I was struggling with it for over half a year. If your opinions are more moderate, like mine, this book may repulse you with the amount of pure hatred and one-sidedness. Yes, Fallaci had some strong arguments, but the arguments were presented deep in emotions and ad-persona shaming.
On one hand, it was informative, but on the other, I've decided not to read anything Fallaci wrote any more, as I had to shrug and take a break every few pages to look at rainbows and ponies to remind myself that there are good things too. Riprende i concetti di la Rabbia e l'Orgoglio. Forse un po' troppo catastrofista ma certo corretta nel suo esame della storia recente che ha portato alla definizione di Eurabia. Brava Oriana!

Cualquier persona interesada en el conflicto de Medio Oriente y la amenaza del Islam radical, debe leer este libro. Mi appello alla Ragione. E insieme a Mastro Cecco che di nuovo sale sul rogo acceso dall'irragionevolezza ti dico: bisogna ritrovare la Forza della Ragione. Si definisce una moderna Mastra Cecca che, seguendo le orme del suo predecessore bruciato al rogo per le sue scomode opinioni, anni dopo finisce lei stessa al rogo per il suo punto di vista sull'Islam e l'Europa.
In bilico tra saggio e denuncia, La forza della ragione ci invita stavolta ad abbandonare la rabbia e a tornare a fare spazio alla Ragione, l'unica guida sicura in un mondo allo sbaraglio.
