Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Dec 9, 2009 at 18:10

─▒ dont think you can go to referendum for every subject in democracies. great majority of europeans would prefer a complete ban on islam if asked in a referendum. there is a great hate of culturally over protective europeans.but is this democracy. you cant ask everything to people in a referandum.what will happen to basic human rights..

racizm is the illness of western people. islamofobia is a cultural racizm. on the other hand if really eu can ban islam completely for the individuals,actually this may not be so bad for the muslim world. this may bring democracy to arab countries and unite the middle east. what a dream to imagine all these huge wealth transfer back to our region and putting to jail all those kings and dictators of imperializm.so go on. really ban islam completely please.
