Brigitte Bardot: 'France invaded by sheep-slaughtering Muslims'
Ms Bardot, who is not now quite so beautiful, has already been given a two-month suspended prison sentence and a fine of 15,000 euros for saying the Muslim community was ‘destroying our country and imposing its acts’. She has been a prominent advocate of animal rights, and understandably therefore finds Eid al-Adha more than a little distasteful since so many sheep are slaughtered to commemorate Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael, which is even more of a waste when one considers that they are commemorating an event which never took place.
But France is home to 5 million Muslims, Europe's largest Muslim community, making up 8 per cent of France's population. Mr Bardot is Roman Catholic and slightly objects to this. Prosecutor Anne de Fontette told the court she was seeking a tougher sentence than usual, adding, "I am a little tired of prosecuting Mrs. Bardot."
Ms Fontette is, of course, under no compulsion to prosecute Ms Bardot at all, but she is evidently of a masochistic persuasion and has no understanding of genetics. It is difficult to see how the holding of any of Ms Bardot’s opinions constitutes a crime, or why her attorneys have not demanded to know what ‘race’ has been slurred.
But there is a certain demographic development in France which is resulting in a degree of Shari’a-creep, and the authorities would rather not have national icons like Ms Bardot drawing attention to the fact. French prosecutors and judges are therefore determining the guilt of those who do not accord with l’état, and acknowledging Shari’a principles in the process. It must also be observed that it is the French courts which are also now defining what constitutes a race.
The fanatical Islamists who insist on using bombs and bullets ought to observe this process, for violent jihad is evidently no longer necessary: the courts are delivering what is demanded, and they simply ought to be patient.
But Cranmer thinks that Ms Bardot should counter-sue for harassment, or take her case to the European Court of Human Rights. His Grace would be more than happy to begin a fund to help defray the costs.
