Swiss populist attack Islam
The referendum against minarets in Switzerland is pretty bizarre and islamaphobic.
I can imagine another religion from the Middle East having its 'alien' buildings banned by people who are essentially racists.
In fact I can think of two other religions.
I am critical of fundamentalist interpretations, well interps which are intolerant, homophobic and anti-women but I am not calling for evangelical churches to be bull dozed.
Populist far racists are whipping up hatred for political gain.
UKIP certainly contains people who believe that the Koran should be banned.
In Switzerland the right want to prevent places of worship exising
Its a religion get over it.
More here on the referendum.
