Bardot guilty of race hate

Brigitte Bardot was convicted yesterday of "provoking racial hatred" for claiming Muslims would, one day, cut the throat of everyone in France. Bardot, 63, was fined pounds 2,000 and ordered to pay for publishing the judgment in three newspapers. She has campaigned against the observance in France of Islamic festivals which require ritual throat-cutting of sheep and goats but her comments have become political, making a connection between ritual sheep-killing and the seemingly random murders committed by Islamic fundamentalist terror groups in Algeria. She is married to a former official of the far-right National Front.
