Today, a bit about Elisabeth Sabatisch-Wolff - speaking out

Today, a bit of an introduction to another of the people being interviewed in November, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.

Who will it be, who takes on speaking out against things like Sharia? In one place, it's a retired physics professor. In another, it's an interior decorator. In Austria, the person who's become best-known is Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. 

Her father was a diplomat and she herself worked for years in foreign embassies. She got an intimate understanding of Islamic doctrines while living and working in Kuwait and Libya. 

When she came back to Austria, she decided to begin educating her fellow Austrians about what she had learned. 

There have been very interesting twists and turns, including speaking internationally ... and having charges filed against her, such as for "denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion." 

The outcome? For that, plus a photo, come to:

And now, all the best to all of us who care, 

Elsa

Who will it be, who takes on speaking out against things like Sharia? In one place, it's a retired physics professor. In another, it's an interior decorator. In Austria, the person who's become best-known is Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. 

Her father was a diplomat and she herself worked for years in foreign embassies. She got an intimate understanding of Islamic doctrines while living and working in Kuwait and Libya.
 

When she returned to Vienna, she decided to begin educating her fellow Austrians about the true nature of Islam and Sharia law.

Elisabeth had been giving seminars for a few years when, in 2010, she ran into legal trouble. She was charged with "inciting hated." Then at the discretion of the judge, a second charge was added: "denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion."

She had to face an expensive legal battle. Lots of legal costs: this was not something to play around with. The case came to court in 2011. The first charge (inciting hatred) was dropped and but not the second (denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion - what a crazy law!!!).
 

Elisabeth had a choice between prison and a fine. She chose the latter.
 

If she had to do it over, she would once again choose to speak out.

And she still speaks out, both as a speaker and as a civil liberties representative for B├╝rgerbewegung Pax Europa at meetings of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Warsaw and Vienna. As a speaker, she's been invited to Germany, the Netherlands, France, Britain, Denmark, Canada, and the United States. Plus, she's the chapter head for ACT! for America in Austria.
 

She's also a mother committed to staying home with her daughter, rather than trying to juggle career and motherhood.
 

A question her experience raises is: how do we speak out, if we live in a country with a law against "denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion."
 

Another question: how did Elisabeth start out? What made her recognize Sharia as negative? And what made it vital to her to speak out?
 

For that, come back
 the week of November 19
