Voters in Switzerland have approved a ban on the construction of minarets on mosques. Local media called the apparent prohibition a “slap in the face” to the government, which opposed the ban.
Maybe Muslims will take a hint and leave Western countries that don’t want them there. Before they are forced to leave.
Supporters of the proposed ban say minarets represent the growth of an alien ideology and legal system that have no place in the Swiss democracy.
One of the arguments by those DHIMMIS against the ban is that it will provoke Muslim extremism, a religious boycott by wealthy Muslims, as well as Muslim protest violence. These are similar to the consequences two years ago after a Dutch cartoonist published a caricature of the Muslim prophet Mohammed with a bomb in his turban.
Projections a week ago showed that less than 40 percent favored a minaret ban, but exit polls revealed that nearly 60 percent of the voters supported it. Backers of the ban said the minarets are a symbol of militant Islam. Muslims comprise approximately five percent of the country’s population, more than double the number in the 1990s.
Swiss Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf, who opposed the ban, told theSwissinfro.ch website, “Its supporters say they are against minarets. But they want to fight what they consider creeping Islamization and Sharia law.” (As they should) ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS
