Storm Track Infiltration: Is Switzerland Getting Muslims Goat?

Like most of Europe, Switzerland is increasingly becoming a target for Islamists. But unlike other European nations, Switzerland is proactive in protecting its culture especially when it comes to the Swiss Peoples Party (SVP).

Recently, the SVP, the largest party in the Swiss parliament, launched a campaign to have the building of minarets banned. From the BBC:

<font color="blue">They claim the minaret is not necessary for worship, but is rather a symbol of Islamic law, and as such incompatible with Switzerland’s legal system. Signatures are now being collected to force a nationwide referendum on the issue which, under Switzerland’s system of direct democracy, would be binding.

Supporters of a ban on minarets say they have no intention of preventing anyone from practising their faith. "We don't have anything against Muslims," said Oskar Freysinger, member of parliament for the Swiss People's Party. "But we don't want minarets. The minaret is a symbol of a political and aggressive Islam, it's a symbol of Islamic law. The minute you have minarets in Europe it means Islam will have taken over." </font color>


Now that’s some level headed logical thinking but not surprising since the Swiss have always been a pragmatic bunch. They need more of that thinking in Europe today. Realizing that the practice of Islamism is not Islam but an attempt at political and aggressive Islam is the correct way to view what the Islamists are doing in Europe and in the USA.

Here’s some more level headed thinking from the SVP.

<font color="blue">The campaign poster was blatant in its xenophobic symbolism: Three white sheep kicking out a black sheep over a caption that read “for more security.” The message was not from a fringe force in Switzerland’s political scene but from its largest party.

The nationalist Swiss People’s Party is proposing a deportation policy that anti-racism campaigners say evokes Nazi-era practices. Under the plan, entire families would be expelled if their children are convicted of a violent crime, drug offenses or benefits fraud.

“We believe that parents are responsible for bringing up their children. If they can’t do it properly, they will have to bear the consequences,” Ueli Maurer, president of the People’s Party, told The Associated Press.</font color>

Parents responsible for their children’s behavior? How novel.
