First blood by the neo-fascists in Europe

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

Submitted by Ghulam Muhammed, Mumbai (India), Dec 1, 2009 at 08:00

The alarm in western capitals on Switzerland's vote against Minarets, is less to support Muslims' assimilation and more to register a public outing of the neo-Nazi trend that is gradually on the increase in UK, France and now in Switzerland. Yesterday, the Jews were the focal point for Fascist consolidation, today it is the Muslims and immigrants. Jewish commentators and analyst will have to temper their ingrained opposition to everything Muslim. The current phenomena in Europe's electoral scenario, should at least be very familiar to them.
