Muslims insulted by Swiss rejection? Too bad.

Peace and love to Christians and Jews!

They’ve got their head diapers in a knot over in the sandpile because of the Swiss vote against further building of minarets.

An  “insult to Muslims”, wails one Egyptian cleric,  while the Organization of the Islamic Conference, calls the vote a “recent example of growing anti-Islamic incitements in Europe by extremist, anti-immigrant, xenophobic, racist, scare-mongering ultra-right politicians who reign over common sense, wisdom and universal values.” Boo hoo.

The only Christian church I’m aware of in the land of the religion of peace and tolerance is a tiny one in Qatar, opened in 2008 and built without bells or, God forbid (so to speak) a cross. Saudi Arabia not only bars churches, it confiscates bibles and burns them when it finds them. Etcetera, etcetera. So until they show the same tolerance they demand from the west, I’ll tell them to pound sand.

    It sounds like they get their talking points from left wing groups in the West. I would argue that most of the scare-mongering politicians are in the Middle East, not Switzerland. The same goes generally for ultra-right wingers although maybe we could dig up a few way back in the hills.

    Religion of any kind is a scam for the masses….just a longer-running Madoff scheme, like Santa and the Easter Bunny and tooth fairy…and Sesame Street

    Plenty of alleged Jews and Moslems and Germans (many of whose ancestors may have been Nazis) are perfectly happy adopting residency in Geneva for tax purposes….and the lil Swissies are happy accepting their capital and taxes, as they have for centuries

    i tend to agree with your sentiments regarding the vote, however, here’s a link with pictures of lots of churches in the muslim world. i assume they’re mostly ancient and i can’t imagine new ones being built right now, but still…

      That’s what’s so sad about our modern times, Kate – the Muslim world used to be a hugely tolerant place with Christians, Jews, and everyone else living and worshipping alongside each other. Not the case now.

    CF, at 9:42, replace “the Muslim world” with “the Republican party” and you’ve got an equally accurate observation.
