Ainda a Fallaci

Vejamos, então, o que diz Christopher Hitchens - esse guru pronto-a-servir da direita-pensante, sempre chamado à conversa quando se fala do Islão - acerca da última e triste fase de Oriana Fallaci:

Written in the hot flush that overtook her on September 11 [CH refere-se a Raiva e Orgulho, editado em Portugal pela Difel], and originally published as a screed in the Milan daily Corriere della Sera, this is a sort of primer in how not to write about Islam. Fallaci claims in her introduction that in order to shorten the diatribe for newspaper purposes she "set aside the most violent passages." I wonder what those passages can have been like; the residue is replete with an obsessive interest in excrement, disease, sexual mania, and insectlike reproduction, insofar as these apply to Muslims in general and to Muslim immigrants in Europe in particular.

Vale a pena ler integralmente o texto publicado na Atlantic (a original, obviamente...) para se perceber o tipo de disparates e generalizações sem sentido que vemos todos os dias nos blogues portugueses.
