dc.description.abstract Oriana Fallaci is one of the most controversial character of early twentyfirst century. Journalist and writer, veteran of many wars, became famous with the aggressive and passionate interviews with world leaders – from the Ayatollah Khomeini to Lech Walesa. After years of silence, an Italian writer announced on the pages of “Corriere della Sera” article “The Rage and the Pride”, in which attacks Islam and calls for the defense of western civilization. Introduced on 29 September 2001 and was the beginning of an intensive campaign against Islam. This article gave rise to the first work devoted to issues of contemporary Islam with the same title. Its quite a spectacular return to the scientific discourse, Fallaci explains that there are moments in life when silence becomes a sin, and the speech is imperative. Its message for modern civilization and Western Europe continued in the following books: “The Force of Reason” and “Interview with my self. Apocalypse. These three studies describe and analyze Islam, which for Fallaci is a great threat to the Christian Old Continent. Openly, bluntly presents an apocalyptic vision of a Europe which is happening in her eyes. Opinions about her and her work are different. Some love her and praise, others criticize and accuse of racism and promote hostility toward the Arabs. Also, critics are divided on the artistic value of her work. For sure, however, caused much confusion in the modern world with their original ideas and they are worth to discuss. Oriana Fallaci believes that she flows upstream and dares to say things, which are thrown out of the official discourse. In her view, this kind of taboo is Islam and its followers. Fallaci presents the current situation in Europe in terms of conflict. On the old continent compete Western civilization with Islamic civilization. Due to cultural differences and lack of shared values is not possible to coexistence and conflict is almost inevitable. In connection with the crisis of values and the negative natural increase, Europe is steadily losing its influence, which place is taken by the Muslim culture. Fallaci believes that the policy of multiculturalism promoted heavily defeated. Muslims do not want to accept European values, do not respect our rules and traditions, and openly express their hostility toward Western civilization. The password of the defenders of the Muslim minority, that there is a moderate Islam is one big bluff.
