Ban minarette, it is the expression of great democratic tradition. yes, of course. But does it have to be justified by the photos of church in Qatar. Qatar is autocracy existing only because of the presence of strong western military presence. It is a pity that Switzerland has to learn from autocrazies in middle east whose ruler are worst oppressors(and darlings of neocons) in the world. Any how swiss muslims are in a far better position compared to their compatriots in Bosnia and Serbia. Remember muslims in Srebrenisca were lured into their death in thousands by promise of protection by Dutch soldiers of UN mission who then hand over them to blood thirsty christian army of Serbs to be elevated to safest heaven.

Now that more and more christians in europe are rediscovering their Crusader past I won't be surprised if they vote in future to force muslims wear yellow cloths. Remember millions of muslims were wiped off from spain and forcibley converted to christianity at gun point. So muslims should be thankful that they are even allowed exist in europe now. Remember those who celebrate the democratic victory of banning minarets, similar things are happening in other democrazies as well. In many states of india, conversion to other religion is banned, i.e. maily to christianity. With the overwelming majority of hindus in india, and with the ascendancy of fanatics in the political arena in future they can ban construction of churches or even ban nuns walking in the street with their head covered. Also budging muslim democrazies like indonesia and malasia where you see more churches than mosques can vote to ban or demilish churches there. You will have to defend them as well if they do so. I wish Europe still have some sane people left.
