Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff at ACT! For America 1
One week from today Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff will go on trial in Vienna for “hate speech” — or, more precisely, for “denigrating religious teachings” — in a lecture she gave as part of one of her informational seminars about Islam.

Criminal procedure in Austria does not allow her or her attorney advance access to the tape of her seminar that was recorded by NEWS ( the Austrian newspaper which publicized her seminar, and which prepared the transcript which will being used against her in court). As a result, the entire tape will have to be played during the court session, which means that the proceedings may take more than one day.

Elisabeth is using the seminar transcript to prepare a point-by-point rebuttal of the charges filed against her. She will demonstrate that her statements represent an accurate account of sharia as established through a consensus of the scholars of Islamic law. Reliance of the Traveller by al-Misri, the most authoritative treatise in the Shafi’ite School of Islamic Law, will be one of her primary sources.

Elisabeth's Voice (small)Elisabeth’s Voice, the international initiative to provide funding for Elisabeth’s legal defense, has been an enormous success. Depending on how many days the trial takes, and how many levels of appeals will be necessary, she may now have enough in her fund to cover most of her legal costs.

To all those who contributed: we owe you an enormous debt of gratitude for your willingness to help Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff fight for the cause of free speech in Europe.

The list of participants in Elisabeth’s Voice has grown so long that I have put it below the jump. I included every link I could find, but I know I must have missed some. If your blog is not on the list, and you publicized Elisabeth’s case (including a link to her defense fund website), please send us an email so that you can be added to the roll of participants.

Elisabeth’s Voice:


Readers who wish to donate to Elisabeth’s defense fund should visit the Save Free Speech site. The defense fund is not under her control, and disbursements from it will be made solely to pay her legal fees.

    They should be honest abot this and just charge her with Blasphemy under Shari’ia. Let’s face it, if you went around Europe arresting Europeans for denigrating Christianity, they’d have to rent Austrailia as prison space. There’s onle one religion that gets this kid-glove treatment from the Left (and the Left are the only ones in the West enforcing Blasphemy laws).

    You’ve pretty much hit the nail on the head. And the reason the left supports all large-scale evil political and/or “religious” movements was covered in my previous thread about why modern-day liberals are always 100 percent wrong.

    The liberal elites are hoping for the same deal that the House of Saud has — they get to do whatever they like, and the muslims get to control the proles.

    @ Rodan:

    They are all on the Left. Socialism is a Leftist doctrine, whether it is National Socialism, or International Socialism. And Socialism is evil. Deeply evil. It isn’t the only evil in the world, but it is wone of the greatest. It has caused more human misery than almost anything except Islam. It is no wonder that the two are in alliance now.

    The PLA keeps making advances. You know where they got the technology from, hint: here! What I laugh at is how it says Western analysts are shocked. Yeah a 5,000 year old civilization should never be underestimated.

    China’s New Drones Raise Eyebrows

    ZHUHAI, China—China is ramping up production of unmanned aerial vehicles in an apparent bid to catch up with the U.S. and Israel in developing technology that is considered the future of military aviation.

    Western defense officials and experts were surprised to see more than 25 different Chinese models of the unmanned aircraft, known as UAVs, on display at this week’s Zhuhai air show in this southern Chinese city. It was a record number for a country that unveiled its first concept UAVs at the same air show only four years ago, and put a handful on display at the last one in 2008.

    The apparent progress in UAVs is a stark sign of China’s ambition to upgrade its massive military as its global political and economic clout grows.

    This explains why Progressives get 40% opf the vote at a minimum.

    Nearly 1 in 5 Americans had mental illness in 2009

    CHICAGO -- More than 45 million Americans, or 20 percent of U.S. adults, had some form of mental illness last year, and 11 million had a serious illness, U.S. government researchers reported on Thursday.

    Young adults aged 18 to 25 had the highest level of mental illness at 30 percent, while those aged 50 and older had the lowest, with 13.7 percent, said the report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration or SAMHSA.

    Luddy got exposed as a copy and paste Jew. These Yeshiva students think he’s a fake and NOT Jewish. SOmething I’ve suspected for a long time.

    Another point to consider is these European “hate speech” laws came into being during the post Nazi era and were written to suppress resurgence of that evil. Right or wrong then,these same laws are now being used to establish the superior position of another fascist ideology,islam.How perverse.

    @ vagabond trader:

    That is the problem when you violate natural rights. It will always come back and bite you. You either have freedom, or you have oppression. Notice that I’ve never called for the Koran to be banned (regarded with the same respect one regards Mein Kampf, but neither book is banned in the US, nor should it be). Burn it, don’t ban it! :evil:

    It is a pity someone doesn’t have a sock, to go over and put the link in the “Links” tool and paste it around until they get banned.

    Gtg, time to go work the cash register.

    We haven’t gotten much foot traffic in the store lately. Everybody’s waiting for Black Friday. The news people are projecting that Black Friday will be very active, but that consumers will hibernate after that until it gets closer to Christmas.

    I tend to concur. I’m not seeing any readiness to spend for the holidays in the consumers I see.
