Blood libel

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

Calling this 'Fascism' or 'Nazism' constitutes blood libel.

It is merely healthy that the Swiss stand up against totalitarian, theocratic forces. Iran has predictably protested, for they want to export their terrible form of government everywhere, and hate opposing forces.

We Europeans did a lousy job at standing against fascism back in the 1930's. The Swiss referendum is an indication that we're learning our lessons and are resisting in due time. This is Good!
