Switzerland: UN Demands Yuman Rites for Muslims, But Not For Native Swiss

The comments by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Committee were made in conclusions on Swiss progress in implementing the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which is monitored by the body of experts.
Switzerland should “strenuously ensure respect of freedom of religion and firmly combat incitement to discrimination, hostility and violence”, the committee declared.
Among other recommendations, they said the Federal Commission against Racism should be strengthened to investigate all cases of racial discrimination and incitement to national, racial or religious hatred. Otherwise, an independent mechanism able to initiate legal action should be set up.
The committee said it was also preoccupied by reports of police brutality against people arrested or detained, in particular against asylum-seekers and migrants.
It said all cantons should create an independent mechanism to investigate complaints against the police. Ethnic minorities should also be better represented in Swiss police forces, it added.
While recognising the Swiss authorities’ “sustained attention” to human rights and measures undertaken since the last progress report in 2001, the body urged Switzerland to lift its remaining reservations concerning the treaty, to ratify the Optional Protocol – which establishes complaint and inquiry mechanisms – and to create a national human rights institution.
Other specific recommendations focused on better protection and support for asylum seekers, firearms, assisted suicide, combating violence against women, and compensation or reparations for forcible castrations and sterilisations conducted between 1960 and 1987.

Poster Carl from Vlad Tepes points out the inconsistencies:

The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), and the UN Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) which monitors compliance with it, function as islamist front organizations. This is because none of the following muslim countries have signed or ratified the ICCPR: Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Malaysia or United Arab Emirates.

The UNHRC lectures Switzerland on freedom of religion. Meanwhile, the Saudis prohibit Christianity, Jews, Buddhists, churches, temples, priests, bibles and crosses etc. (No Jew is allowed to travel or work in Arabia/ed) They also torture and murder anyone who preaches or converts to other religions. The Malaysians treat non-muslims as second class citizens by making them pay a “non-muslim” tax.

So the UNHRC fights for the freedom of Islam to spread into other countries, while allowing Islamic countries to go scot-free as they brutally persecute other religions and shut them out. It’s hypocritical BULLSHIT, and the UNHRC members should be egged and shouted down the next time they appear in public.

NO RIGHTS FOR ISLAM IN WESTERN LANDS, UNTIL ALL RELIGIONS HAVE RIGHTS IN MECCA

The comments by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Committee were made in conclusions on Swiss progress in implementing the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which is monitored by the body of experts.

Fooled again

rheinfelden

The Muslim community in Rheinfelden/Germany got approval to build a mosque with a minaret on condition that no loudspeakers be attached and that no amplified call to prayer would annoy  nearby residents. As soon as the building was completed, the muezzin started to wail and howl over 3 powerful loudspeakers and annoyed the hell out of the neighborhood. Now, because of the upcoming referendum in nearby Switzerland (a citizens initiative has already collected over 120.000 signatures against mosques and minarets) some think the muslims gave away the game to soon….

So, according to the latest news from Jihad Watch Germany,  the soldiers of Allah removed the loudspeakers (for now) since it was “childish and  thoughtless”. Lets see what they say after the Swiss had their referendum.

1009-nobelpreisMeanwhile, Muselmaniacs and their useful idiots in Switzerland go apeshit over the above posters. Some of the Cantons have refused to allow them for the usual hysterics about racism and xenophobia, while others have gladly distributed them throughout.

Here is the story in German:

Im deutschen Rheinfelden sorgen drei Lautsprecher an einem Minarett für viel Lärm – vor allem unter der Bevölkerung. Das «fahrlässige Vorgehen» spiele den Anti-Minarett-Gegnern in der Schweiz in die Hände, glaubt der Vorsitzende des christlich-islamischen Vereins in Rheinfelden.

Switzerland: Islam-wary Swiss may ban minarets

Calmy-Rey lets the cat out of the bag:

The trade with Arab countries is at stake! Can’t have that!  We can’t alienate the Arabs, what to do, what to do?

calmy-rey Therefore, the anti-minaret initiative is evil and must be nipped in the butt.
On Radio DRS  the Swiss Foreign Minister and Ahmadinejad-hussy Calmy-Rey spoke  against the anti-minaret initiative. The proposed ban on minarets infringes on freedom of religion and was also a danger for the economy and security in Switzerland. “It is as if we would ban church towers,” she said. (well, Calmy Rey already contradicts herself in the next sentence, because banning church towers is unlikely to result in terrorism/ed)

Another critical point was the backlash  in the Muslim world against  Switzerland, which the adoption of the initiative could trigger. With reference to the impact of the cartoon controversy in Denmark  the anti-minaret initiative  was also dangerous for the foreign policy and relations between Switzerland and other countries. Above all, trade with Arab countries is at stake and Switzerland can’t alienate the Arabs.

The Islamization of Switzerland

Minarets to be banned in Switzerland?

Islam Online whines:

The SVP and a small ultra-conservative Christian party launched a campaign last year to have the building of minarets banned in Switzerland.

The far-right parties claim that a minaret is not necessary for worship but is rather a symbol of Islamic law supremacy  and conquest which is incompatible with Switzerland’s legal system.

The move has shocked Switzerland’s 350,000 Muslims, many of whom have been campaigning doing da’awa for decades for more recognition for their faith.  >>More

Bunglawussi has more:

“An overwhelming rejection of the ‘minaret initiative’ would serve as encouragement to all Muslims in Switzerland. And treating Swiss Muslims as respected and loyal residents would enhance openness and mutual trust accelerate the Islamization in the country. It is crucial to  (dis-)continue to  cultivate a tolerant, multicultural and multi-confessional society, which would act as the foundation of our shared future. Swiss society as a whole would come out the winner.”  (We would be the losers. We don’t have a shared past and if we allow it, we won’t have a future/ed)

Emir Cengic reports on the referendum over the proposal to ban the construction of minarets in Switzerland, to be held later this year.

Switzerland Federal Council Decides in Favor of Minarets

                            

The trouble with this decision is that once again politicians ride roughshod over the concerns of  115 000  citizens who signed this petition against minarets. What is more disturbing is that once again  “Human Rights” are invoked and used to further the Islamization of the the Dar al Harb. There is no reciprocity in Islamic countries, where our concept of human rights is derided and replaced by the sharia, which doesn’t respect human rights at all. Some Islamic countries are signatories to  human rights agreements, but don’t plan to abide by them anytime soon.

The popular initiative against the construction of minarets has been submitted in accordance with the applicable regulations, but infringes guaranteed international human rights and contradicts the core values of the Swiss Federal Constitution. On 27 August 2008, the Swiss Federal Council recommended that the Swiss parliament reject the initiative without making a counter-proposal. If the initiative does not “infringe upon the core human rights that are recognised by all states and must be upheld by all”, in the view of the Federal Council, it is nonetheless irreconcilable with the various human rights that are guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and by the UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (UN Covenant II). It a press release, the Federal Office of Justice explains how the initiative

  • violates religious freedom and the discrimination ban
  • contradicts the core values of the Federal Constitution
  • ineffective in the fight against extremism, and
  • endangers peace between religions; hinders integration

The inititive has been a source of concern and indignation in Switzerland and abroad. The Federal Council acknowledged the initiative on 8 July, 2008, when it was submitted with almost 115’000 signatures, but, in a unusual move, had immediatekly voiced its opposition:  the “Federal Council will naturally be recommending that parliament and the electorate vote against the initiative”.

* This will be interesting:

114’895 Swiss citizens signed a petition to halt the construction of minarets. Under Switzerland’s direct democracy rules, that level of support is enough to trigger a referendum. The Federal Council recommended on Wednesday rejecting the ban when it goes to popular referendum in two months.

* Watch your government stooges: they sell out faster than you can  call them whores…

An update to this story:

 

The Federal Council recommended on Wednesday rejecting the ban when it goes to popular referendum in two months. 

The coalition government includes all major political factions except the right-wing Swiss People’s Party. It is the strongest in the country and most supportive of the ban.

The government says the proposal violates human rights and the Swiss constitution and would not help combat Islamic fundamentalism.

Supporters of the ban say the minaret is a symbol of Muslim conquest that challenges traditional order in Switzerland.
