The great Orianna Fallaci has passed away; may she rest in peace

Orianna Fallaci, a feisty and fearless journalist and author, passed away (due to cancer) in Florence.

Just as September 11, 2001, affected us all, it affected her, prompting her to publish two books that have been scathing criticisms of militant Islam and spineless Westerners. They are The Rage and the Pride (Wikipedia’s article on this book) and The Force of Reason (Wikipedia’s article on the book).

Michael van der Galien wrote:

Although she now has died, her books / writings will live on. She has left a gigantic legacy, one that will continue to have an impact on millions and millions of individuals.

Quite true. I hope her example will prompt others to follow her example and be fearless in saying what must be said.

May she rest in eternal peace and may she live on eternally in our minds, through her works, and by her example.

I am very impressed by the tributes being paid to her on the dexteroblogosphere. To read some, here are what I could find:
