On Sunday I co-hosted with Lisa BensonÂ a program on the Phoenix-based Salem radio networkÂ Lisa Benson Show on National Security. It was the first US interview with courageous free speech advocate Paul Weston after his release from jail in the UK. We also had on Elisabeth Sabaditsch -Wolf from Vienna and Sarah Stern of the Washington, DC basedÂ Endowment for Middle East Truth(EMET).
Stern addressed the demise of the Administration Final Status Negotiations, Secretary of State Kerry’s reprehensible gaffes about Israel devolving into a racistÂ Apartheid state if a deal failed and a comment on anti-Israel J Street’s campaign to join the JewishÂ umbrella group,Â the Council of Presidents of American Jewish organizations. The COPMAJO thankfully turned down J Street’s application yesterday.Â Stern also pointed out that J Street had supported efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate,Â the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Regime in Tehran through the National Iranian American Council (NIAC).
Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wollff coveredÂ the litigation against her free speech and seminarsÂ about Islamic doctrine and entanglements with AustrianÂ hate speech laws. She got convicted for reading Suras from the Qur’an about treatment of women and girls under Shariah, Islamic law. Ms. Sabadistch-Wolff will shortly arrive in Orlando, Florida to be part of the first US Prayer March against Persecution of Christians. She and her colleagues from the Citizens’ Movement PAXEUROPA and the International Civil Liberties AllianceÂ had exposed the myth of Islamophobia at the 2013 Meetings of the Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Warsaw in 2013.
Paul Weston of Liberty GB explained that following his arrest and incarceration in jail for several hours following the episode reading excerpts in Winchester,Â from Churchill’sÂ The River WarÂ Â Â that he was recharged under Article 4 of the Criminal code in the Uk for racially based incitement!!Â He had to post bail to be released from jail prior to a hearing.Â If the court hearing based on the new charges is successfully prosecuted in the UK law courts, Weston could serveÂ up to two yearsÂ in Jail. As pointed out by co-host Lisa Benson, it was as if Churchill hadÂ been arrested given what Weston read last Saturday in Winchester.
These are troubling times in the West.Â TheÂ Hon. Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) and PVV colleague Raymond de Roo, Â are to be commended for requestingÂ the Dutch Foreign Minister Timmermans to question Her Majesty’s Government in the UK about the denial of free speech and freedomÂ of LibertyGB leader and politician, Paul Weston.Â We know where Paul Weston stands on these vital issues in Faire Albion havingÂ interviewedÂ him forÂ The New English Review. Freedom in the UKÂ that he explainedÂ has been eclipsed by recognition ofÂ Islamic Law in more than 90Â Sharia Law Courts.Â That was also reflected in the promotion by UK Prime Minister David Cameron of the City of London as the capital of Sharia compliant finance placing trillions of euro dollar deals earning lawyers and brokers millions in fees. And, we might millions in obligatory Zakat contributions, one of which is following in the way of Allah, Jihad.Â Weston pointed out these troubling developmentsÂ whenÂ we asked him how widely recognized Islamic doctrine was in the UK. He ably respondedÂ to these questionsÂ informing the radio audience here in America and via internet to theÂ World. of how dark the circumstances had become in Britian.
ListenÂ to the Lisa Benson Radio show with Paul Weston, Elisabeth Sabaditsch- Wolff and Sarah Stern.
Bravo to Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon for rising to the defense of Paul Weston’sÂ free speech and liberty in the UK. Wilders’ own free speech and liberty have been attacked in March 2014Â givenÂ losses in Dutch local electionsÂ that stunned the ruling coalition government in the Hague Parliament. Â Dutch political leaders have failed to dislodgeÂ the Freedom Party (PVVs)Â discomforting their vaunted multiculturalism and appeasement of Islamic intimidation of free speech and both civil and human rights.Â Wilders and the PVV standing in polls taken in the Netherlands have vaultedÂ theÂ Freedom Party to the topÂ rank in the run up to the European Parliamentary elections to be held over the period fromÂ May 22 to the 25th.
Nevertheless, we need to support Weston’s liberty in the UK. Wilders and de Roon have led the international effort to defend WestonÂ and his party, LibertyGB.
Below are the questions that the PVV has raised with the Dutch foreign Ministers Timmersman regarding Paul Weston arrest and charges.
PVV questions Dutch Foreign Minister about arrest of British politician
Today, Dutch parliamentarians Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon (both PVV) asked the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Frans Timmermans, a number of questions about the arrest of British politician Paul Weston. You can read the questions below:
Parliamentary questions of MPs Raymond de Roon and Geert Wilders (both PVV) to the Minister of Foreign Affairs about the arrest of a British politician for quoting Winston Churchill:
1)Â Are you familiar with the articles “Paul Weston – Victim of Sharia: Arrested For Quoting Winston Churchill”Â andÂ “Arrested for quoting Winston Churchill: European election candidate accused of religious and racial harassment after he repeats wartime prime minister’s words on Islam during campaign speech”? (*)
2)Â Do you share our opinion that the arrest of the politician Paul Weston is a gross violation of freedom of expression and an example of dhimmi behavior? If not, why not?
3)Â Do you agree that this event is not unique, but is exemplary for the state of siege surrounding freedom of expression through the rise of Islamic censorship in the West? If not, why not?
4)Â Is it true that Paul Weston risks a two-year prison sentence due to simply quoting a passage from Winston Churchill’s book “The River War” about the militant character of Islam and the social decline that results from it. (**)
5)Â Are you willing to contact the British Minister of Justice and insist that no charges be pressed against Paul Weston? If so, will you keep Parliament informed of the British reaction? If not, why not?
6)Â What are you going to do to ensure that freedom of expression, both domestically and internationally, will not be sacrificed to Islamic intolerance?
7)Â Are you prepared to draw international attention to the danger that anti-racism laws and criminals laws on defamation of religion and/or groups are abused to silence criticism of Islam?
8)Â How do you intend to wage the fight for the preservation of freedom of expression, in light of the planned rapprochement to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an organization which aims for an international ban of blasphemy and which attempts to restrict freedom of expression in the West under the pretext of the fight against “islamophobia”?
