Over at Gates of Vienna, Baron Bodissey has posted a video which features Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Woff (photo above) , who stands criminally accused of insulting Islam in Austria. Her trial begins on November 23, 2010. She faces three years in prison if convicted.
As I watched and listened to her speak both in German and fluent English, I was struck by the intellect, courage and depth of this remarkable woman. The crimes for which she is being persecuted by a spineless dhimmi government are that she quoted from the Koran in public forums and expressed her objections to the despotic nature of Sharia (Muslim law), particularly with respect to the systematic oppression of women and non-Muslim men that is endemic within Muslim states. You can watch the seven-minute video by clicking here or on this link, http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2010/10/we-are-elisabeths-voice.html :
“The fact that I have to stand trial is a fact. There is nothing th-, th-, I won’t get out of it. But it’s not yet sure when…”
Can you picture in your mind a criminal trial of your next-door neighbor for speaking up with appropriate language and factual evidence in a city council meeting about his objections to anything? I cannot either. But there are now criminal proceedings in progress throughout Europe against citizens and elected officials who have gathered the courage to stand up and speak against the Islamization of their countries.
Q: And what was your fault? I think you quoted the Koran? So, umm, what’s, what’s the problem?
A: I don’t know what the problem is. It seems that some people do not appreciate, ah, a, a non-Muslim, ah, quoting verbatim from the Koran. Ah, what I did was, quoted ah, Suras, I quoted from the Sharia. I quoted from the Sunna. Ah, I even told, ah, my audience which Koran I actu-, which Koran translation I used. Ah, apparently some people from the elite, ah, do not appreciate that….
Indeed. They want to put her into prison.
…Ah, apparently you have to convert, ah, t-to Islam to, in order to ah, quote from the Koran and not be accused of hate speech…”
And following your conversion you can enjoy all of the benefits accorded a female Muslim in a Sharia state – being subject to beatings at the hand of your husband, not being allowed to drive a car (Saudi Arabia), not being allowed to leave your home without a male family member, not being allowed to vote – and looking forward to caning and death by stoning if you are accused of adultery.
