Swiss vote to ban minarets

swiss vote to bank minaretsUPDATE: The Swiss measure has passed and will be written into the Constitution – no minarets in Switzerland!  I’m moving to Lake Geneva.

On Sunday, November 29, the Swiss will vote on a referendum to ban minarets in their country. The proposal is sponsored by the most popular party, which is deemed “right wing.” So-called radical feminists are backing the ban as well, because they view the minarets as male symbols – phalluses, obviously – and equate them with the Islamic oppression of women.

Raised in this debate is the quote from the Turkish prime minister Tayyip Erdogan, who stated that minarets were the “bayonets” of the Muslim religion, an obvious war term indicating the true intentions of Islamic global domination. Needless to say, such remarks are perceived as a threat to Western civilization, and rightly so. As one “local housewife” Julia Werner says:

“If we give them a minaret, they’ll have us all wearing burqas. Before you know it, we’ll have sharia law and women being stoned to death in our streets. We won’t be Swiss any more.”

The left, naturally, is “appalled” by this development, while a Swiss foreign minister expressed fear that the country would be terrorized if it votes yes on the ban!

The government, for its part, is worried about reprisals plunging Switzerland into the front line of the war against terror. Micheline Calmy-Rey, the foreign minister, said a yes vote “could make Switzerland a target for Islamic terrorism.”

In other words, “we are cowards who will not defend our culture against bullies threatening to dominate us through violence.” And what does this fear say concerning the rank-and-file Muslims who are complaining about “discrimination?” The obvious perception is that if we all don’t cave into them, they will terrorize us and commit violence against us.

Switzerland votes to ban minarets

Switzerland has voted to impose a blanket ban on the building of minarets across the country, backing an initiative by far-right politicians.

A clear majority of 57.5 per cent of the population and 22 out of 26 cantons voted to ban the towers or turrets attached on mosques from where Muslims are called to prayer.

Women lead Swiss in vote to ban minarets

A right-wing campaign to outlaw minarets on mosques in a referendum being held in Switzerland today has received an unlikely boost from radical feminists arguing that the tower-like structures are “male power symbols” and reminders of Islam’s oppression of women.

A “stop the minarets” campaign has provoked ferment in the land of Heidi, where women are more likely than men to vote for the ban after warnings from prominent feminists that Islam threatens their rights….


  1. Good for Switzerland
    It is about time the western world stood up and said no to other cultures immigrating to our countries and trying to turn them into the third world back waters they ran away from. If you want minarets and sharia law stay in YOUR country. How many Swiss have immigrated to the middle east and tried to impose their way of life (enlighted, civilized) on the 7th century whack jobs. It does not. happen. Our cultures are the way they are because of the European inhabitants who have progressed, who use their intellectual abilities . I almost hate to say that race has everything to do with it, but anyone who believes this not to be the reality of our world is just willfully ignorant. If multi-culturism is such a grand thing then immigrate to the middle east or africa. I guarantee you will not end up holding hands with people who consider you infidels and singing kumbya. It is time the occidental world said go home and do not come back EVER!!!

    YIPPIE – at least some people have their head on straight. Maybe they could talk to the US Gov’t & Congress and the rest of the western world? And lets not forget about the UN.

  3. So, let me make sure I got this straight – it was the women who had the [b]BALLS[/b] to stand up to Islamist bullshit? So, the men are cowards or what? The men should get a severe bollocking!

    Thank the goddess for these brave & courageous women who had the guts to stand up in protest against the women hating cult known as Islam. These women obviously recognize that they will never have equal rights so long as Islam is around. All women need to realize that.

    To the hotties in Switzerland, come to the US – I’ll fight for ya!

  4. Islam and Terrorism – Something I learned from by
    I was doing a Google Search not too long ago for Feb 15, 2003 when Howard Zinn had said there were massive protests. From the list or 100 results I saw something that looked interesting. It was a DOC file and so I downloaded it and used Word Viewer to read it. This is the first part:

    [quote]Islam and Terrorism
    An Address By: Dr. Labib Mikhail
    Symposium on Islam
    February 15, 2003
    The Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill

    I was quite honored when the Christian Coalition of America invited me to be part of this symposium on Islam. My subject is “Islam and Terrorism.” [/quote]

    And this is the part that surprised me because it is such a contrast of inequality that I think Acharya has already pointed out that our freedom of religious expression has been taken advantage of. Now here’s a quote just towards the end of that document.

    [quote]Meantime, I would like to say to the Muslims that there are major differences between Christianity and Islam. Christianity created free societies, where freedom of religion is granted. Muslims took advantage of this freedom and built hundreds of Mosques in England, in Australia, in Canada, and in the United States of America. While in Saudi Arabia, they do not permit the construction of even one church. In Afghanistan, during the reign of King Zahir Shah the only existing church, which had been built by president Eisenhower’s request of King Zahir, was demolished on May 17, 1970.[/quote]

    They seem to feel that rules that are unequal are okay. So I think we should do unto them as they have done unto us and make a rule that is the exception to the rule of allowing freedom of religious expression. You could call it an exception to the rule or qualifications to be able to reap the benefits of that rule.

    As you can see from the beginning part and because it was found via the date only “Feb 15, 2003” I was wondering how applicable the next quote is.

    [quote]While the Saudis distribute thousands of copies of the Koran in the US and elsewhere, they do not permit even one Bible into the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This is one major difference between Christianity and Islam.[/quote]

    I remember when going to hotels across the United States and even when I had a business trip around the world I remembered seeing the Bible in some of the places I was staying. So is it true that they still do this?

    1. re:
      😀 Sir

      so Umar Ibn el khatab Judge and order the christian to hit him and his father if he want
      for sure u can use the same google to search this if u don’t believe me

      1. Thank you. Christians in Egypt – the NATIVES of that country, long before Arab INVADERS slaughtered them and took over their land – are being persecuted [i]as always[/i]. In fact, the heat has been turned up considerably since the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi took power.

        Muslim Persecution of Christians ([url][/url])

        You may have a Christian friend, but you are apparently not aware of the horrendous suffering Christians have endured under the rule of Muslim invaders in their own country these past many centuries. Their history is akin to that of the Native Americans and other natives who were invaded and slaughtered, except that the Americans were wiped out mostly by disease, whereas wherever Islam went, its fanatics massacred the inhabitants themselves.

        If you would like to see how horrible Christians are suffering in Egypt ([url][/url]) because of Islamic fanaticism, I suggest you study the writings of Raymond Ibrahim. He also reads Egyptian Arabic, so feel free to contact him in your native tongue.

        Raymond Ibrahim, Specialist in Islam ([url][/url])

  5. Thank you. You can disagree, but everything I’ve stated here and elsewhere about Islam is true and factual.

    Although you yourself may live simply and ethically, you do so [i]in spite of Islam[/i], not because of it.

    Islam teaches hatred, violence, bigotry and supremacy – those are facts. Even during daily prayers, Muslims are making bigoted remarks against nonbelievers, including Christians. What you have taken away from Islam is up to you, but Islam is not “divine revelation” and has been forced upon you since birth, without your consent.

    Ask yourself how you became Muslim? Did you willingly choose to follow it, based on years of study as an adult? Did you study other religions first? Or was Islam compelled upon you since you were born, because your family is Muslim?

    And how did your family become Muslim? Probably at the point of a sword, centuries ago, depending on where you are from. Islam was spread mainly by violence, and your ancestors likely were raped and slaughtered into it.

    Islam also teaches slavery ([url][/url]), and its “prophet” had sex slaves, including children. Here is what Islam teaches:

    Honor killings
    Supremacy/global domination
    Limb amputations
    Genital mutilation
    Death to apostates
    Forced conversion
    Sex slavery and rape
    Women enslavement
    Wife beating
    Child marriage/rape
    Brutality against homosexuals
    Bigotry and hatred
    Robbery and pillage
    Extortion of nonbelievers
    Animal cruelty
    Prohibition of music/singing
    Destruction of pre-Islamic antiquities
    Etc., ad nauseam ([url][/url])

    Islam’s misogyny and sexism are outrageous, so please spare us the false apologies. Like I say, if you personally are treating women properly, you do so [i]in spite of Islam[/i], not because of it. Here is what Islam says about women:

    “They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

    “Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

    “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

    “A male shall inherit twice as much as a female.” Quran 4:11

    “Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses…” Quran 2:282

    “[Forbidden to you are] married women, except those whom you own as slaves.” Quran 4:24


    Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man. Muslim men can own sex slaves. ([url][/url])

    All one needs to do is look around to know that Islam teaches horrendously vile treatment of women. Again, spare us the insult to our intelligence with these false apologies.

    [img][/img] ([url][/url])

    What does the Koran say about women? ([url][/url])

    Instead of posting false apologies on a nonbeliever’s website, you can free yourself of this brainwashing and join the rest of humanity. Please feel free to go to this site, where there are many ex-Muslims with whom you can discuss these subjects: ([url][/url])

    Be sure to go to the forum there, as well as to read the articles, where you will find the truth about Islam, rather than the pabulum you have been fed.

    Good luck.
