This article is very telling and disturbing. The double standard by the Muslim world is appalling. In the Muslim countries it's rare for Christians to have full autonomy. The heart of Islam, Saudi Arabia, fully suppresses Christain expression. Yet Muslim leaders cry foul when a non-Muslim nation bans only one particular structure that is associated with the more theocratic aspect of Islam.
And, what does the Swiss minister in this article fear? She states that this is a security risk to have enacted this ban! It sounds as if she fears inciting Muslim reactionaries. In other words, we in the West should bow to terrorism.
