Beware the Islamization of the West:

Advancing the Criminalization of Free Speech

Posted By Christine Williams On December 5, 2010

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is facing criminal charges in Austria for “hate speech” following a presentation she made about Islam at a seminar.  In her talk, the Act for America member and chapter leader condemned political Islam–not Muslims– with its spreading influence across Europe.  According to Elisabeth:

Islamic doctrine discriminates against women and non-Muslims. Islamic law, or shariah, cannot be reconciled with democratic principles and universal human rights.

She further warns in an interview:

Even Libyan leader Muammar Ghadafi says: “There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without swords, without guns, without conquest. We don’t need terrorists, we don’t need homicide bombers. The 50+ million Muslims [in Europe] will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.” A head of state confirms what our politicians deny. What else has to happen until we finally get it?

As Elisabeth stands trial, her defense lawyer invokes expert witnesses:  Robert Spencer, Wafa Sultan and Hans Jansen.  In this travesty of a court proceeding, Elisabeth, who is of a quiet demeanor endures the rod for all of us in the name of freedom.  She suffers interrogation by a judge who scrutinizes her every word about Islam, questioning her like she is a foremost expert on the subject.

The criminalization of offending Muslims has resulted in the threat of a witch hunt against those who dare to express an opinion that is deemed offensive to Islam. Multicultural countries like Austria and Canada remain particularly vulnerable. German Chancellor Angela Merkel stirred controversy for recently pointing out the shortcomings of multiculturalism.

The cases of Geert Wilders and Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff are not in isolation and will become the norm until all Westerners unite to resist and root out the advancement of dhimmitude that has already beset our democracies. In January 2009 Austrian politician and member of the Freedom Party, Susanne Winter, was convicted on charges of incitement because of so-called anti-Muslim statements she had made:

“In today’s system” the Prophet Muhammad would be considered a “child molester,” apparently referring to his marriage to a six-year-old child. She also said that it is time for Islam to be “thrown back where it came from, behind the Mediterranean.”

For her opinion, Winter was sentenced to a 3 month suspended prison term and a 24-thousand Euro fine. Three months before this conviction, her son Michael, a former Freedom Party Youth Leader was also convicted of the same crime.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) drafted by the UN in 1948 is insidiously being replaced by the 1990 Cairo Declaration of Human Rights which affirms the Ummah and asserts the place of mankind as “vicegerent of Allah on earth,” leaving the universality of human rights dubious and setting the stage for global governance of a political Islam, rife with an all out assault on free speech.

The OIC has repeatedly called into question the Western right to free speech on the grounds that it incites religious bigotry, hatred and violence against Muslims.  In March, the UN Human Rights Council finally passed a resolution to restrict free speech.

While we are not obligated to support the messages of individuals who offend Islam, we have a duty to fully support their right to deliver their messages.  How many times have others insulted the name of Christ without fear of a fatwa being declared against them or otherwise being prosecuted by the courts?  How many people that have offended Christianity faced the fate of  Theo van Gogh and are living under police protection like Ayaan Hirsi Ali?

Elisabeth’s question –  “what else has to happen until we finally get it?” –  is an outcry that we all need to heed lest we lose what our founding fathers established, and what many young men and women have gone to war and lost their lives to protect:  our democratic rights and freedoms.  To turn a blind eye is not an option.
