Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff: Thoughts Before Trial
by Ned May
Tomorrow morning, Tuesday December 20th, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff will learn the results of her appeal to Austria's highest court.
As described in this space a few weeks ago (See Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3), Elisabeth was charged last year with "denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion" for asserting that "Mohammed had a thing for little girls." In February of this year she was convicted, and will have to pay a fine of up to €480. If she refuses to pay the fine, she may spend a maximum of two months in jail.
The court did not contest the truth of Mohammed's marriage to a six-year-old, nor the fact that the Prophet of Islam had consummated the marriage when his bride was nine. The judge could hardly disagree with these facts, since they are confirmed by authoritative scholars in all branches of Islam.
