    Well this seems to be the fruition of false fears. The Muslims in Switzerland were making no grab for political power, they merely were just living their lives. Even during this campaign, they denied support from Muslim nations.

    This is a sad day for tolerance and freedoms in Switzerland.

    I expect there is a reason why the sources are given in such small lettering.

    I don't gather what you are saying

    Sharia law is being pushed in nations around the world, and once in place all is lost, and other Religions will be no more than a memory because history will be changed and it will one be as if it never existed.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Tex,

    You've yet to prove that Islam is anymore dangerous than any other system of beliefs.

    Right. I've given you 3 times the amount of violent directives in the Qur'an than any other major religion. I've given you real life terrorists who have killed thousands using that religion to kill others. I've given you Muslims who have grown up in Western Countries with good jobs and steady paychecks turning to Islamic Fundamentialism killing more people. I've given you multiple examples of Muslims pushing for Sharia law in Western Countries. I've given you more terrorist attacks committed by Muslims than any other major religion in the past 50 years alone and still you claim they are all the same.

    The only thing you have proven is that denial is a powerful weapon.
