This is evident aggression.

Really? How can a democratic vote inside a country, that has no effect outside its borders, be "aggression"?

Churches also have special features both spacial and decorative that express Christianity, would Moslems ban the building of churches then in response to this erratic and unreasoning act?

Muslims already ban the building of churches (not just church steeples) and have been doing so for hundreds of years. They didn't need any act to respond to. How about you and I travel to Saudi Arabia and count the churches? It won't take long.

Do not blame our holy warriors now to destroy churches and hunt down Christians in volatile places as Lebanon, Iran and Iraq.

Your beloved holy warriors have been doing that for years.

This reaction is slow, but certain and you will see the damages churches and christians will get soon

The reaction was incredibly quick, considering we've seen plenty of damage to churches and Christians since long before the Swiss vote.

Will the ban include the pyramids and places like istanbul and Taj Mahal

No. Since when does Switzerland create building regulations for outside its borders?

What about the minerate of Alexandria one of the wonders built by a Macdonian and the many Cleopatras needles....

What about them?

Salah Ali, aren't you miserable living in infidel Norway? Elections. Equality. Democracy. Girls in school. No beheadings in the town square. No amputations. Can't remember the last stoning. Sounds very depressing. Wouldn't you be happier in an Islamic paradise like Libya, Pakistan or Saudi Arabia? They're only a plane ride away.
