Ao que parece, a sessão terminou quando a juíza falou de «descriminação de crenças religiosas».
O que virá a ser isto? Será crime descriminar um mandamento para matar os infiéis do mandamento de amar os inimigos?
O julgamento prossegue em Fevereiro (o sistema judicial austríaco parece ter semelhanças com o português: a coisa tem ar de estar para durar; muito diferente do holandês, a julgar pelo processo Wilders).
THE STATE OF AUSTRIA VS. ELISABETH SABADITSCH-WOLFF PART II
Elisabeth’s trial for “insulting a religion” resumes today, Henrik Clausen from EuropeNews will be feeding the Tundra Tabloids a live feed directly from the courtroom in Vienna. The trial is set to proceed at 9:00 this morning, 10:00 Finnish time. The Gates of Vienna has posted the state’s specific charges against Elisabeth, here.
THE TT’S LIVE BLOGGING OF THE TRIAL BEGINS:

Defence hands over the translation of relevant parts of Reliance of the Traveller. The judge verifies basic personal facts about ESW, then proceeds directly to playing the seminar tapes. Noise is quite audible in the recordings. This goes to the heart of our problems with terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism, and will be reproduced in part here.
First issue taken up is the Muslim Brotherhood and its extensive political influence in Austria and Europe, and their desire to implement religious rule (Sharia) where possible, and the use of terrorism to pursue this objective. The lamentable lack of strong, moderate voices from Islam.
The Hadith is quoted, for it consists of what Muhammad did and said, the ideal for pious Muslims and the foundation for Sharia law, which basically codifies Quranic commandments and behaviour described in the Hadith into what is today Islamic law.
ESW: There is no Islam without Sharia, that cannot be separated. Sharia-based societies have been known for many centuries, and still exist today. The aim is to establish an order of society similar to that Muhammad had decreed and exemplified. The ultimate aim of Islamists today remains the same: To implement Sharia as widely as possible, ideally throughout the world. Sura 9:5 is an example of these:
Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islâmic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and give Zakât, then leave their way free. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful
11:00 Next mentioned is Taqiyya – the permission and/or obligation to lie towards non-Muslims when doing so will further the cause of Islam. Quran, Bukhari and Muslim scriptural references are given for this. Also described in detailed in Reliance of the Traveller chapter 8.
Dr. Rami interrupts, asking for a clarification of the relevance of this passage. There seems to be a difference from the transcript. PowerPoint presentations are brought out to clarify.
The religious sanctioned lying is difficult for our politicians to handle. It is not clearly described in the Quran, is mainly based on Hadith, drawn on Muhammads’ tactics against his enemies.
Some discusssion with the audience follows. References are made to a variety of Quran verses, and the principle of abrogation in Islam.
11:00 Dr. Rami interrupts to point out that the quiet, factual tone of the seminar demonstrates that this is not hate speech, but an educational setting going through relevant documentation.
Dr. Rami also hightlights the question from the first seminar, if it would remain legal to say ”Islam is bullshit”, pointing out that this was not a statement of fact (visual ‘quoting’ had been used by ESW to indicate this). The relevant seminar recording is selected to be played next.
Back to the seminar tapes. Euro-Islam is discussed. ”Muslims hate us”. Elisabeth is heard saying: Who here would dare go in the street with a sign: ”Islam is Bullshit!”?
The judge discusses the charges, and the statement that the conduct of Muhammad is exemplary for Muslims, including the problem of Muhammad marrying a 6-year old girl, and what exactly that would be called today, if not paedophilia.
Dr. Rami interrupts the playback, pointing out that the purpose of playing the tapes has been accomplished, namely demonstrating that the sessions were scholary, throughoutly documented, and in no way constituted ”incitement to hatred” or similar.
Judge Neubauer adjourns the hearing, scheduling the next one for February 15th at 10:30.

NOTE. The judge has introduced a new point: discrimination of religious beliefs, the lawyer was not prepared for this point to be raised. That’s why the trial is over for now, with it being scheduled to resume on Feb 15.
