Minarets: Symbols of domination and conquest
SVP parliamentarian, Oskar Freysinger:
“..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.”
…the Peoples Party got “over the 29% they earned in October’s vote. This cements the party’s position as first political formation in the Swiss Confederation-a distinction they first earned in 2003. Since that time, the SVP’s share of the Swiss National Council has grown to 62 seats of 200. The second-place Social Democrats, meanwhile, dropped nine, to settle for 43.
The SVP took after Political Islam, as being thoroughly un-Swiss. Look at what the party’s platform doesn’t constitute ‘Swiss Values’:
… include genital excision, “crimes of honor,” polygamy, and discrimination against women. The party also speaks to freedom of conscience and opinion, while rejecting, in the tradition of Swiss secularism, “political claims of religious inspiration and their symbols.” This refers to minarets, specifically.
The party kicked off a signature drive in May to force an obligatory referendum banning minarets, which [the SVP] considers both an accessory of worship and a “sign of domination.” “Islam,” they write, “makes no distinction between Church and State, such that minarets become the expression of influence not only religious, but political, in nature. This conception is incompatible with Western secular tradition.”
* Damn right! Power to the Swiss, keep going!
Porco Allah: The italian Way of Stopping a Mosque
* From Al Reuters of course. If you object to the Islamization of Europe you have to be ‘Far Right’ or ‘Islamophobic’ you Nazi-white power supremacist, you!
Italy’s far-right Northern League has come up with some provocative ways to protest against the construction of mosques. One of its members, Senator Roberto Calderoli, has called for a “Pig Day” to demonstrate against a planned mosque in Bologna. In December 2006, protesters left a severed pig’s head outside a mosque being built in Tuscany. Their latest idea was to parade a pig around the site of a planned mosque in Padua last weekend to “desecrate” the property.
The woman leading the protesters is former deputy Education Minister Mariella Mazzetto, a Northern League member. She told the journalist: “We have blessed the ground that the city of Padua wants to transfer for the mosque … It is a question of defending Italian identity.” Muslims and non-Muslims joined in denouncing the protest.
(fuckwit) priest in Treviso has been allowing local Muslims to use his parish hall for Friday prayers for three years. “For me, they are all children of God,” Father Aldo Danieli told Corriere della Sera. But his bishop told him on Saturday he would have to stop the practice, since Church law said Catholic places of worship could not be used by other religions.
This probably won’t be the last time that the Northern League uses pigs to try to provoke Muslims. How should they react?
* Muslims cut throats, attack and bomb infidels and Jews, since when do they have to be provoked to do that? isn’t that how they always react? Isn’t that what their Islamic religion commands them to do?
* Now don’t act too surprised, they do it all the time. Its the Religion of Peace, don’t you know?
In an effort to get close enough to murder Benazir Bhutto, one of the Islamist attackers reportedly strapped his explosives to a one-year old infant.
Meanwhile, horrifying new details emerged last night of the attempt by suicide bombers to kill Ms Bhutto on her return home from exile last month.
Investigators from Ms Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party said yesterday they believed the bomb, which killed 170 people and left hundreds more wounded, was strapped to a one-year-old child carried by its jihadist father.
They said the suicide bomber tried repeatedly to carry the baby to Ms Bhutto’s vehicle as she drove in a late-night cavalcade through the streets of Karachi.
“At the point where the bombs exploded, Benazir Bhutto herself saw the man with the child and asked him to come closer so that she could hug or kiss the infant,” investigators were reported as saying. “But someone came in between and a guard felt that the man with the child was not behaving normally. So the child was not allowed to come aboard Benazir’s vehicle.”
Ms Bhutto is said to have told investigators she recalls the face of the man who was carrying the infant. She has asked to see recordings made by television news channels to try to identify the man.
