Minaret, a symbol of Islamic supremacy

Reader comment on item: The Swiss Ban on Minarets: A Possible Turning Point
in response to reader comment: Ban of Minarets is religious intolerance and not going to help on broader issues

Submitted by Ugri (Finland), Apr 24, 2010 at 07:54

Minarets solely a matter of urban planning? An issue of environmental aesthetics? Opinions to that effect have been presented by various city officials. (The Swiss got it right.) A very cunning taqiyya-kitman approach to the matter, this attempt to negate the religious meaning of minarets. And when we speak about Islam we must keep in mind Islam's true endeavour: world domination. A fact Jalal Ul Deen perfectly well knows. I warmly recommend this text by 'Fjordman':
