Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff - Guilty Of "Hate Speech"," For Criticizing Islam

February 18, 2011

February 18, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - - On Tuesday, in another blow to what remains of freedom of thought in Europe, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was fined 480 Euros in an Austrian court for her criticism and characterization of Islam.

The verdict and fine is now on appeal.

As we noted in a November 22, 2010 piece Death Of European Free Speech - Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff's "Anti-Islam" Trial To Commence Tomorrow In Vienna

"Tomorrow morning, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff will stand trial in Vienna, Austria, accused of violating Europe's onerous "hate speech," thought control statutes.

Sabaditsch-Wolff has been accused of fomenting hatred against the Continent's Muslims, primarily by quoting verbatim from the Qur'an. If convicted she could face a stiff fine as well as prison time.

The trial has caused quite a stir among conservative defenders of free speech but has garnered almost no coverage from a complicit Western press.

As noted wag Pat Condell observed regarding this spectacle, "Europe today is a shining example of how to piss in your own drinking water..."

This is a monstrous moment in European jurisprudence. If the ruling is allowed to stand, Austria will have made the conscious effort to enforce the Shari'a principle, that criticism of Islam is a punishable offence, thus bringing Europe ever closer to the radical Muslim goal of Islamizing the West.
