“We must stand up and reclaim our ancient liberties.”

Below is the text of the speech given today in Luton by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff:

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.

It is not the same in my country. We Viennese have a proud history, first as the seat of the Holy Roman Empire, and later as the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. But, sad to say, universal human rights came late to Austria, and their roots are shallow. Not only that, the Austrian Empire was the prototype for the modern multicultural state, with its patchwork of ethnicities and official languages.

To make matters worse, in 1912, when Bosnia was incorporated into the Austro-Hungarian empire, my country recognized Islam as an official state religion. The law establishing Islam in Austria is the very same law under which I am being prosecuted.

So the right to free speech in Austria is neither deeply rooted nor greatly respected. But this is not the case in England.

Any Englishman who asserts his right to free speech is not breaking new ground. He is reclaiming what has already been his for centuries. The rights of free speech, free assembly, and self-government are among the “ancient liberties” of Englishmen. Any government that interferes with those liberties is tyrannical and illegitimate.

It’s worth remembering that your cousins in the American colonies rebelled against King George III because he usurped those very same rights. The colonists who formed the United States of America began by demanding their ancient liberties as Englishmen.

This is what we all must do. In these degraded and perilous times, we must stand up and reclaim our ancient liberties.

This is why I support the EDL. I stand behind any group that resists Islamization by peacefully invoking its right to speak freely about the evils of Islam.

I was prosecuted for informing ordinary people about the reality of Islam. Educating our own people is our most effective strategy to use against sharia.

For that reason, I advise you not to burn the Koran, but to read it. Only by studying what Islam stands for will we learn how to face it down.

Know your enemy. We do not fight him with knives or guns, but with the pen, the microphone, the video camera, and the printing press. Understanding what Islam means is our greatest weapon in the struggle against it. We do not need any intimidation or bullying, because the truth is on our side.

Samuel Johnson once said, “Courage is the greatest of all virtues, because if you haven’t courage, you may not have an opportunity to use any of the others.”

In the deadly times that lie ahead, courage will be required of ordinary men and women who refuse to submit to the tyranny of Islamization. Hate-speech prosecutions and shotgun attacks are only a mild foretaste of what is in store for us.

Col. Allen West, one of the most stalwart soldiers of the Counterjihad, always signs his emails with the words “steadfast and loyal”. We too must remain steadfast and loyal to one another in the coming struggle.

Never give up. Never give in.

We will never surrender!

I am ever surprised at how many of my non-blogging friends know nothing about Elisabeth.

The mainstream media blackout on her plight is very effective. 🙁

Free People of the World, Unite!
Against Jihadi Genocide
Free Will and Candor will Prevail
Against the bloody Muslim Hell

We Choose the Freedom of the Thought
To Muslim Beast we Bow Not
Each individual is precious
Responsible he’s and courageous

Let the Thousand Flowers blossom
Fear Not the vile Colossus
We will smash it into dust
Overcome the Lies we must

Against the darkest Muslim Night
We Choose our Might and we are Right
We’re Free as long We Do No Harm
We care and tend for our young

We stand Opposed to the Oppression
To weak and gentle our Protection
The wicked Lies reject we must
In God of Truth we put our Trust.

Wow!

Now, tell us what you REALLY think!

Great speech! ;-D

4 Islam Mohammad February 15, 2011 at 2:19 pm

The following story is a true story, and is referenced in more than 12 Islamic references. The story has undisputed facts that will remain facts, but people’s judgment and analysis of these facts, will differ greatly according to the standards they apply to these facts. During certain periods of human history, people were killing and eating other people, and were having the highest pride and honor in doing that. Although this is a very short story, it displays many things about the teachings and the nature of Islam and Mohammad.

The story is about 8 men that came tired and in need of care to Mohammad [Good Prays and Appeases Upon Him], and he invited them to become Moslems and they accepted Islam, to be safe. Then Mohammad ordered them to drink the urine of camels (as medicine) and to drink the milk of camels, which they did. Before the end of the day, they changed their minds and converted from Islam. They escaped very early in the morning and killed the slave that was caring for the camels and took the camels with them. Mohammad sent his people after them and they brought the 8 men and the camels back to him. Mohammad himself, cut their hands and feet and gouged their eyes and left them to die.

Notes:
1-
2- The prophet Mohammad, treated the men this way because they changed their minds and did not believe in him as a profit or in Islam as a religion, and converted from Islam. Torturing, killing, and terrorizing people, are the methods used up until now to prevent people from discussing their views about Islam and Mohammad, and to prevent them from converting from Islam.
3- Mohammad invited the 8 men to become Moslems, because Islam forbids Moslems from dealing, sheltering, or caring for non-Moslems. It is the opposite, that Islam orders Moslems to kill non- Moslems as a guaranteed way to go to heaven and to enjoy on earth what they can capture from the killed persons.
4- It is well known that Mohammad drunk the urine of camels believing that it is a miraculous medicine, which God revealed to him. The sources mentioned here did not state if Mohammad was drinking the urine fresh or was collecting it in special containers for his own use and the use of the Moslems.
5- Islam imposes on all Moslems the duty to follow exactly what Mohammad was doing, or they will be considered converts and must have their hands and feet cut and their eyes gouged and finally killed, as Mohammad did to the 8 men.
6- It is the duty of Moslems to follow Mohammad example and provide enough supply from the urine of camels as an effective medications for treating all Moslems around the world, as an alternative to the medicine made by the countries of non-Moslems, which could be tainted with the pig’s meat or fat, which is against the teaching of Islam. Providing enough supply of camel’s urine, should be the responsibility and the privilege of the Moslems in the Arab Peninsula, because they have abundance of camels. Providing camel’s urine as a medication will make every Moslem proud of this achievement and could be a financial hit to the drugs’ companies owned by non-Moslems.
7- Cutting the hands and feet of the people that fight Mohammad or convert from Islam, is also imposed by the Koran [Elmaeda (5:33): The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger, and endeavor to spread corruption on earth, that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. That is the disgrace they deserve in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom.]
المائدة (5:33 ) إ ِنَّمَا جَزَاءُ الَّذِينَ يُحَارِبُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَسَادًا أَنْ يُقَتَّلُوا أَوْ يُصَلَّبُوا أَوْ تُقَطَّعَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُمْ مِنْ خِلَافٍ أَوْ يُنْفَوْا مِنَ الْأَرْضِ.

Yes, I have heard of this before.

Mutilation of human beings is an evil and disgusting practice. It has happened in many societies; by now, Judaeo-Christian civilization has just about completely abandoned it, but the same is not true of Islamic societies.
