Inciting race hatred
The Glamorgan Gazette reports that the BNP has been blamed for inciting racial hatred after a mosque was attacked with racist graffiti. The BNP's European leaflet is pinpointed for creating an atmosphere of hatred. Muslims going to prayers on Bank Holiday Monday found the mosque daubed in blue paint with words like 'kebab', 'KKK' and 'Self Pity' as well as references to the Iraq war. The sickest part of this whole incident however was the comment by a BNP spokesperson. He is reported as saying that Muslims themselves may be responsible in a bid to "discredit the BNP". I am still speechless.
