Frontpage Interview's guest today is Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, a free speech activist who was charged last year in Austria 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. Just recently, on December 20, 2011, her conviction was upheld by the higher court. If she refuses to pay the fine, she may spend a maximum of two months in jail. She grew up and lived in Muslim countries and experienced Islam first-hand.
FP: Ms. Sabaditsch-Wolff, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
I would like to talk to you today about your trial and where it stands now. But let us begin with a bit of background about yourself.
