New English Review Press is pleased to announce the publication of our thirty-first book, The Truth is No Defense by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff:
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is a woman caught up in extraordinary times. She has been hectored, vilified, persecuted and prosecuted for the grave offense of telling the truth about Mohammed and his “marriage” to a very young child as related in Islamic sacred literature. Her case has exposed the grave danger to freedom of speech (and thus, freedom of thought itself) in Europe. She fought bravely in the legal arena through the Austrian courts and on to the European Court of Human Rights to defend her freedom (and by extension the rights of all Europeans), to freely voice her opinion. She lost.
In Europe, human rights are no longer thought to be intrinsic to the individual as a gift given by God, but are rather thought to be a gift of the state, which can be limited or revoked at will.
This is a dangerous development and it could be coming to America.
Her book serves as a warning call.
“The persecution and prosecution of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is an indication of the deep crisis Europe faces today, thanks to its own leaders. This is what totalitarianism looks like.”
— Robert Spencer, author of the bestsellers The History of Jihad and The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran.
“A brave champion of liberty in Europe, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has felt the full weight State prosecution for the “crime” of telling the truth.”
— Clare M. Lopez, Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C. think tank focused on national security issues.
“Sabaditsch-Wolff’s loss [at the ECtHR] is Europe’s defeat.”
— Stephen C. Coughlin, attorney, decorated intelligence officer and noted specialist on Islamic law, ideology and associated issues as they relate to terrorism and subversion.
