Iranian Foreign Minister Confirms Swiss People's Fears of Expansion of Islam in Switzerland

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Dec 9, 2009 at 11:32

In expanding on the premise that Islam is on the continuing move to expand its influences the world over, an earlier expression of labeling the Swiss population reluctant to embrace further symbols of Islam as fascist by some of a Muslim mindset prompted my response that only as a government takes away the liberties of a democratic people is there the move toward fascist sensibilities in trying to obtain control of a country. In that vein, the observation that the fascists of the Second World War embraced Islam as a means to employ tactics for the anti-Semitics efforts of eliminating Jews from Europe in the same way in the Middle East was well documented then, as it is today.

Moderate forms of Islam will eventually give sway to the more fundamental enforcement of shari'a principles as the process continues to its inevitable conclusion. As the Swiss government either moves to invalidate the endorsement or outright concede to the Islamic pressure to permit the continuing construction of masjids with their prayer towers in Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe, we shall come to the full realization that any resolve to limit or minimize such expansions of the Islamic onslaught will be met with every ounce of contravening resolve from the Muslim quarter necessary to complete the second invasion of Islam started hundreds of years ago.

And should we wonder why, or why not? For it is seen that every part of the world has softened the strength of the true message of Jesus Christ with religious tableau, pomp and circumstance, muting with increasing restrictions the expression of the true Gospel, the only power remaining that could be the strength to oppose Islam. Really, there should be no wonder. Further, it will be seen that the forces that oppose the return of the Messiah, told of in the prophecies of Daniel and John , are in fact, the ones we see today.

The Swiss population (not the government, it needs to be differentiated) have partially seen the perceived threat, and in the mindset of protecting the neutrality they have been so keen to do over the years, stemming the advancement of Islam by voicing support of a ban on any further building of prayer towers is the only resort that appears prudent in preventing the lossof their neutrality to shari'a law, which has never been neutral wherever it is being enforced.

And if one does not think that Islam takes exception to efforts against its expansion, then let the words of the Iranian envoy rings in its truth, that such actions are taken as a threat to Islam, to which they will respond in due measure, eventually in nuclear terms.
