Swiss elections only the first step

Reader comment on item: The Swiss Ban on Minarets: A Possible Turning Point
in response to reader comment: First blood by the neo-fascists in Europe

"Jewish commentators and analyst will have to temper their ingrained opposition to everything Muslim." Why? First of all, why do you think that opposition to "everything Muslim" comes from Jews? The rest of us are perfectly able to have an opinion on our own. The Muslims make it very difficult for us to make that a positive opinion. Anyone who takes Islam seriously (whether Muslim or not) sees that it is in stark opposition to the core European values. Islam and European enlightenment or Christianity will not be able to live and prosper peacefully side by side. That is why no-one who takes Europe or the West seriously and likes living here the way it is, will have to temper anything. The Swiss ban on minarets shows that the people of Switzerland realizes that - and so should everyone else.
