Here, via Atlas Shrugs, is the second Speaker Spotlight for our FDI conference at CPAC, Jihad: the Political Third Rail: What The Are Not Telling You:
Freedom Defense Initiative - register here
Help make it happen - contribute.
Our inaugural event for FDI is fast approaching, February 19th -- and if you haven't registered or made it your business to get your infidel ass to CPAC for this totally non-CPAC event, then you are still hopeless.
The infiltration is so vast and so deep, that CPAC, the Conservatives' largest gathering in America, does not address jihad. Last year I had to bring Wilders there on my dime (with the help of Spencer, Horowitz...).
This year after Obama, it's worse. There is actually a panel called "You've Been Lied To: Why Real Conservatives are Against the War On Terror," and that's it.
Here's event. I will be highlighting each speaker as we move closer to the Day.
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is an Austrian human rights and anti-jihad activist. A diplomat's daughter, she was a child in Iran during the Islamic Revolution of 1979, and later lived in Iraq, Kuwait and Libya. During the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, she was among the Austrian citizens who were kidnapped and held hostage. Today, Sabaditsch-Wolff is an international representative of the Citizens' Movement Pax Europa.
Her extensive knowledge about Islam and the political implications of Islamic doctrine earned her an invitation to teach the Austrian political party FPÖ about the nature, structure and strategies the West faces from Islam.
An unprepared reporter from the Austrian magazine "News" attended the seminar, and was so frightened by what she heard that she wrote a major reportage about 'political hate speech' at the seminar, and reported Elisabeth to the Austrian authorities for the crime of 'hate speech', quoting statements from the seminar.
Late in 2009 she was charged with "hate speech" under Austrian law for statements she made during a seminar on Islam. It was another attempt to silence by brute force those who speak out accurately about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism.
Sabaditsch-Wolff explained: "I want to preserve Europe and its democratic and secular values. Islamic doctrine discriminates against women and non-Muslims. Islamic law, or shariah, cannot be reconciled with democratic principles and universalhuman rights."
Sabaditsch-Wolff added: "There are powerful groups who are working towards the Islamization of Europe. That is a fact. What can we gain from closing our eyes and ignoring this? 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?"
Noting that she is being prosecuted for statements about Muhammad's marriage to a nine-year-old when he was in his fifties, and Muhammad's exemplary status for Muslim men even in this, Sabaditsch-Wolff emphasized: "In every Islamic system you find thathuman rights of young girls are in grave danger. Look at Saudi Arabia. Look at the former socialist South Yemen. When Khomeini came to power he lowered the minimum age for girls to get married to nine years." Non-Muslims fare no better: "The Islamic world leads in discrimination against religious minorities. Christians are persecuted and discriminated against in all Islamic countries. You have to remember that the Christian culture is not one that immigrated or is foreign; it is indigenous. There is a complete ban on building churches in Turkey. And now Erdogan speaks of discrimination against Muslims in Switzerland? Where are Muslims being discriminated against in Switzerland? The European elite allows the Islamic countries to walk all over themselves while bowing down to them."
"I am a mother and a feminist," says Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. "I want my daughter and my niece to grow up in freedom and dignity. I want the same for all Austrian citizens, and that includes Austrian Muslims."
While the case against the Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders is higher profile, Elisabeth's case is of the same fundamental nature: it is a battle between fear and superstition on the one hand, and rationality and open debate between free citizens on the other.
