A Referendum Isn't Necessary

Mark Krikorian writes:

The Wall Street Journal story on the Swiss minaret vote had a great quote in it, from a Jamal-on-the-street interview in Turkey (the source of most Muslims in Switzerland):

Cavid Aksin, an Istanbul metalworker, was angered that the referendum coincided with the end of one of the most important religious feasts in the Muslim calendar. "I think Turkey should have a referendum on whether to close down its churches," he said.

You mean churches like Hagia Sophia? Or the Armenian Church of the Holy Cross? Or the Halki Seminary? After 1,400 years of closing down churches, the gall is unbelievable.

It also show how Muslims see Christianity - as a political force, like Islam.

 And the Swiss government does Islam's work for it:

"Minaret ban 'a security risk' - Swiss Minister"

(BBC uncritically reports)-

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/8388793.stm

 The Swiss Minister does not point out that, if there is a security threat, it comes from Islamic jihadists against the Swiss people.

 So, the 'multicultural' conclusion is:

The West should always yield to the demands of Islam, on the grounds of 'security' ( i.e. Western cowardice).
