Poor choice to lead a moral cause

Reader comment on item: The Swiss Ban on Minarets: A Possible Turning Point

Submitted by Richard S. Davis (United States), Nov 30, 2009 at 12:27

That it was the usually quiet, low-profile, un-newsworthy, politically boring, neutral Swiss who suddenly roared their fears about Islam only enhances their votes' impact.

Are you implying that because the Swiss are usually quiet and low-profile they aren't xenophobic racists? They quietly and with low-profile provided the Third Reich with cash for plundered Jewish assets, never asking where the gold was coming from. And then, in a quiet and low-profile way, they proceeded to steal whatever Jewish assets had been entrusted to Swiss Banks, an act akin to grave-robbing. The Swiss are surely completely unqualified to provide a moral compass for Europe.
