Islam Does Not Recognize Swiss Neutrality

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

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Dec 3, 2009 at 15:45

It would seem here that a closer reading of the article to better understand what happened in Switzerland would be necessary before taking the tact that Swiss neutrality is at some jeopardy from fascist mentalities for wanting to limit the influences of Islam in a predominately (for now) Christian country. For fascism to be truly at work in taking over a country, it is the government that takes control away from the people that sets the course for a fascist takeover, and not the people deciding they still want their freedoms (America – take note).

Kristalnacht was the invention of the Nationalist Socialists to finally undermine the true democratic government in place, doing so with ease for the circumstances the post-WW1 Germans found themselves in. And we must remember also that the Islamic clerics were, for the most part, sympathetic with the Nazi movement, especially in the Middle east, where there are pictures of the Mufti of Jerusalem consorting with the SS to eradicate the Jewish presence there.

So, does this not sound like the Swiss should be prudent in expressing their sentiments while they still can, or is it not truly the intent by the Muslim mindset, as broadcast the world over, to cover Switzerland in minarets and eliminate Swiss neutrality for sure under shari'a law?
