* We reported this earlier here, but the Swiss are actually serious about it and seem to ignore the howling from the left and Al Bebeceera.
They do mean business:
The largest party in Switzerland’s Parliament, the Swiss People’s Party, is campaigning to ban the building of minarets on mosques, for the simple reason that they are political statements of Islamic supremacism:
Swiss move to ban minarets.
The BBC, of course, is aghast at this “extreme paranoia.” Never mind that the Islamists themselves say the minaret is a symbol of dominance.
“We don’t have anything against Muslims,” said Oskar Freysinger, member of parliament for the Swiss People’s Party. “But we don’t want minarets. The minaret is a symbol of a political and aggressive Islam, it’s a symbol of Islamic law. The minute you have minarets in Europe it means Islam will have taken over.”
Mr Freysinger’s words may sound extreme, even paranoid, but this is a general election year in Switzerland, and the campaign against minarets is playing well with voters. A recent opinion poll for one Swiss newspaper found that 43% of those surveyed were in favour of a ban on minarets.
“We have our civil laws here,” insisted Mr Freysinger. “Banning minarets would send a clear signal that our European laws, our Swiss laws, have to be accepted. And if you want to live here, you must accept them. If you don’t, then go back.”
* A far left professor adds the usual mental flatliner:
Professor of Islamic studies Reinhard Schulze warns that any hint that Muslims are not peaceful might result in violence. Better to let them have the minarets, so they don’t hurt us.
It’s a harsh message for Swiss Muslims, many of whom were born in Switzerland. There are fears that the campaign against minarets will provoke growing resentment against Swiss society.
* You don’t say! Who are those fearful people? Sheeple?
“I think Swiss Muslims will be angry and bitter over this,” said Reinhard Schulze, professor of Islamic Studies at Berne University. “And we know that anger and bitterness among a community can lead to radicalisation, even to militancy.”
* No doubt Reinhard Schulze has nothing to kill and die for like the Jihadists. No doubt Reinhard Schulze, like most on the far left, sees nothing wrong with an alien cult perverting his country, his civilization and the laws of the land.
Will the left ever learn to tolerate their own society?
Of course, mosques and minarets don’t come on their own: Its a package deal:
Teaching Children to Hate & Kill
Increasing Anti-Dhimmitude in Europe:
Will the Islamophobia never end?
According to studies done by the Catholic University of Louvain-La-Neuve in Belgium, half of all Belgians would like to see the misogynistic symbol of Islamic oppression of women banned: ‘50 pc of Belgians want headscarf ban’.
The researchers, of course, conclude that this is due to “racism,” and re-education must be increased until the mindcrimes stop.
LOUVAIN-LA-NEUVE â€“ One in three people in Belgium is bothered by women wearing headscarves in public places. Just over half even would prefer that they be banned in certain places. Intolerance and racism are at the root of these negative views on headscarves.
This was the conclusion drawn by the religious faculty’s centre for psychology at the Catholic University of Louvain-La-Neuve after two studies into the Belgians’ attitude towards headscarves.
Some 69 percent of those asked see the headscarf as a sign of oppression and 53.3 percent thinks wearing one goes entirely against modern western values. Some 44.6 percent are disturbed by someone wearing a headscarf at school.
The researchers said that this study is evidence that society still has a long way to go in the fight against racism and intolerance.
