AUSTRIAN POLITICIAN FACES JAIL TIME FOR ANTI-ISLAMIC SPEECH
Susanne Winter, a right-wing politician with the FPÖ party, stated that "in today's system" the Prophet Muhammad would be considered a "child molester". Winter who is running for a city council seat in the city of Graz, was apparently referring to Mohammed's marriage to a six-year-old child.
Winter stated that it is time for Islam to be "thrown back where it came from, behind the Mediterranean." She also stated, as have many others before her that Muhammad wrote the Koran in "epileptic fits."
EXCERPTS FROM SPIEGEL: "In an interview with the daily Österreich published on Monday, Winter continued the onslaught saying that child abuse is "widespread" among Muslim men and that Graz is facing a "tsunami of Muslim immigration." In 20 or 30 years, she warned, half of Austria's population would be Muslim.
"Her comments have resulted in a storm of protest in Austria, with politicians and commentators of all stripes taking Winter and her party to task. Austrian prosecutors are...looking into the possibility of filing charges against the 50-year-old politician for incitement."
