European Court of Human Rights Affirms-No Freedom of Speech in Europe

Hat tip Gates of Vienna


It is one of the curiosities of Europe that citizens' rights in the EU member nations are decided by unelected jurists and bureaucrats in places like Brussels and Strasbourg who make decisions binding on citizens in Austria, Germany, Sweden and the rest of the member states.

So it is that the European Court of Human Rights, located in Strasbourg in a compound that more resembles a brewery than a court, has affirmed what was already known. When it comes to Islam  there is no freedom of speech. The ECHR has affirmed the previous conviction Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff of defaming Islam by Austrian courts.
