Reclaiming Our Rights


Pages: 1 2

[Editor's note: the following is a speech given by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff to the English Defense League on February 5th, 2011 in Luton, England.]

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am delighted to be here in Luton, the birthplace of the English Defence League.

Native Lutonians are living at Ground Zero of the attempted Islamic takeover of England. Your resistance is an inspiration to everyone in the European Counterjihad. It is a privilege to have been invited to this historic event.

As most of you know, I have been charged with hate speech in Austria, and my trial is currently underway.

What were the charges against me?

The original charge was “incitement to hatred.” On the second day of my trial, the judge at her own discretion added a second charge, “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion.”

Guess which religion that was?

The second charge is a more serious one, and makes it more likely that I will be convicted.

Those were the charges. Now, what was my crime?

My “crime,” ladies and gentlemen, was to tell the truth about Islam. To quote the Koran and the hadith. To cite the official texts of Sharia. To explain that Islam tells men to beat their wives, and that Sharia requires the amputation of limbs for theft.

In my seminars I explained that Islamic law sanctions the mutilation of the genitals of little girls. It demands that anyone who leaves Islam be killed.

In short, my “crime” was to educate my fellow Austrians about what Islam really means, as prescribed by Islam itself.

Telling the plain truth about Islam in its own words insults Muslims. How bizarre is that?

The EDL’s mission statement describes it as a “human rights organisation.” Its primary goal is to restore the civil rights of ordinary English citizens. In recent years these rights have been systematically eroded by the tyrannical multicultural ideology of the state. Islam would not have been able to establish its oppressive presence in England if the civil rights of Englishmen had not already been taken away.

I share your concern with human rights. If we do not reclaim our basic rights — including the most important right of all, the right to speak freely — our civilization will be destroyed. All of our great institutions, including democracy and the rule of law, are made possible by the fundamental human rights that we all used to take for granted.

These rights are now being deliberately destroyed. The legal case against me is evidence of that fact, and so are the cases against Tommy Robinson, Guramit Singh, Geert Wilders, Lars Hedegaard, and all the other brave people who have spoken out against Islam and then been prosecuted for it.

The rights which are being taken away from us are our God-given rights. They were not granted to us by our governments.

People here in England are very fortunate, because their rights were firmly established long ago. For many centuries Englishmen have claimed — and successfully fought for — the rights of free speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of conscience, and all the other rights that were eventually identified as universal.

    Bravo!

    I just hope that we can learn from the follies of our Western European Allies, and stop this internal 'jihad'. It was awesome of the UK's PM, David Cameron, to bash 'multiculturism'. The U.S. ought to start granting amnesty to the free thinking, courageous individuals from Austria, the Netherlands, etc., who face prosecution for telling the truth.

      l listened to the whole Cameron speech. ln fact he didnt say very much at all – and he was constantly describing those who condemn islam as right wing and fascist. lf anything he was very soft on islam despite his so called condemnation. l dont trust him. Most politicians are not worthy of trust. Their main concern is getting elected and staying elected once theyve been elected. Usually policies and everything else are subordinated to those aims. He wont be the one who leads us out of the wilderness.

    You can add in Michael Savage (US radio talk show host) as well for being black listed from entering the UK for speaking the truth. He is some how lumped in with murderers, terrorists, thieves, skin heads….etc. Thanks Elizabeth, you are a courageous woman and have my thanks for fighting against this scourge of western society.

  • BS77

    Add Elisabeth S Wolfe to the list of heroic, outspoken critics of the idiotic leftist social agenda….open immigration, multiculturism, "diversity" and passive submission to honor killings, terrorists, jihadists, thugs and the hostile ingrates who are ruining England, France, Denmark etc etc……The men of the West must awaken and protect their women and children—yes, it is just that basic. THe left counsels appeasement, shrugging apathy and mega tolerance: a recipe for disaster.

    You have my best wishs! Hopefully we will only have to use words! However? Read Sepoy Mutiny from India in 1857. Theres more but it is important not to trust any Muslim. Sorry! I know its harsh but its better to be safe than dead!

  • Dennis

    As BS77 has said in his comment, "The men of the West must awaken…"

    So, to place that thought in a more dramatic context, please view and listen:

    I ask all Muslims who consider themselves moderate, rational thinking individuals to expose those who wish us Americans and Westerners harm, subjugation, and slavery in their Theocratic society. Unfortunately, you moderates will be dragged into the maelstrom as apostates. Think of your children and grandchildren…the extremists use the children as walking bombs.

    The decision is yours – freedom and life or slavery and death.

    When the truth is outlawed, only outlaws will tell the truth…. and I suppose I must now be either a liar or an outlaw. Courage, honor and integrity or a happy face sticker from the regime? What to choose, what to choose….

  • Chris

    We must take heed of what these few brave people are saying – our very survival depends upon it. Thank God for Elisabeth and the others. Pray God we follow their lead.

  • Ray

    Islam should not be immune to criticism – no religion should be simply because its a religion, and Islam has caused more evil in modern times than any other religion. Many have been killed in the name of Christianity, but at least Christianity claims to be a religion of "turn the other cheek". Judaism has preached extermination of enemies, but I have never heard any Rabbi advocate that in modern times. This is a really big contrast to Islam.
    Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is to be commended, especially since she stands out as one of the few who speak their minds on Islam in a country where she gets punished for it.

    Really interesting speech, sometimes truth and saying what you think can really get you in trouble.
