One of my heroes, Oriana Fallaci, just passed away. Fallaci was a skilled and fearless journalist and, later in life, an even more fearless critic of militant Islam and those in the West who collaborated with it. Europe is in a sad state, and will soon be in a terrible one, because its leaders chose to oppose Fallaci and others who warned of its disastrous fate long ago. There aren't nearly enough like her, and now there is one less. God bless, Oriana, and rest in peace.
