Truth Was My Crime
Truth Was My Crime
A Chilling Case of CensorshipElisabeth 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 the Muslim prophet Mohammed and his "marriage" to a very young child, as related in Islamic sacred literature. She fought bravely in the legal arena through the Austrian courts and eventually the European Court of Human Rights to defend her freedom (and, by extension, the rights of all Europeans) to voice her opinion. She lost, and her case has exposed the grave danger to freedom of speech-and thus, freedom of thought itself-in Europe and, ultimately, the rest of the free world. Truth Was My Crime, an updated, revised version of her 2019 book The Truth is No Defense, recounts her life's odyssey, beginning when she was a young child living in a number of Muslim countries. No stranger to the customs, traditions and doctrines of Islam, Sabaditsch-Wolff is only too aware of its harsh prejudices. Her book serves as a warning call for America and other countries whose cherished freedoms are under attack. Despite the looming danger and her ordeal in the Austrian courts, she is optimistic that truth and freedom can prevail over intolerance and injustice. In America, she sees hope, because in America, freedom still rings among the millions who understand the threat to their God-given right of free speech. Her book is a wakeup call for all who cherish the U.S. Constitution and the freedoms it guarantees. It is also a warning. Speak now. Refuse to be muzzled. Resist while you can, or surrender. Freedom of expression is the basis for all freedom. There is no other freedom without it.
