Ghulam - do you know what fascism means?

Reader comment on item: The Swiss Ban on Minarets: A Possible Turning Point
in response to reader comment: A 'neutral' Switzerland is no longer neutral

If the banning of NEW minarets (not mosques, not religious practices) is fascism, so what would you call the treatment of Christians in any given muslim dominant state world wide? IN Turkey, supposedly the most "modern" muslim state, it is prohibited to build churches or to renovate them at all! In the mosques in Europe they preach intolerance and hate, all of this captured on tape. The mosques often get names from muslim conquerors who slayed thousands of Christians in Constantinopel. The Quran is not tolerant to other religions, Mohammed wasn't and 99% of muslim states aren't. So why should this kind of behaviour be protected in Europe? No other religion has a problem with the way we in the west live. Only Islam. That is why they get sanctioned. No Kristallnacht coming. On the contrary, the count of antisemitic acts in Germany is growing with the number of muslim immigrants. Greetings to Mumbai, where muslims consciously targeted a jewish center and abused and murdered its inhabitants
