Court orders Dieudonné to cut hate video

    Comedian Dieudonné was ordered by a French court last week to edit out two sections of a video he posted on his website and YouTube.

    In the section judged to contravene the French law prohibiting Holocaust denial, Dieudonné says: “I was born in 1966, so I wasn’t alive then… I don’t know anything about the gas chambers.

    “If you like I can organise a meeting with Robert” — a reference to the notorious denier Robert Faurisson.

    In another section, said by the court to incite racial hatred, Dieudonné insisted that he was “not an antisemite” before going to say: “I can’t choose between the Jews and the Nazis.”

    The case was brought by the Union of French Jewish Students. The comedian will be fined €700 for each day the video remains online in its uncut version.
