    I read about this yesterday, and it comes as no surprise at all to me. The Swiss are historically pretty nationalistic and highly value their country's image and symbolic culture. I'm not offended in the least.

    Then you probably aren't offended when the Saudis ban bibles and stuff. That's nationalistic too.

    Hey Scarecrow, here's something fun! Replace every instance of "Muslim" and "Islam" with "Jew" or "Judaism" in your posts and see how it works out! It might look familiar. Fun stuff!

    Just checking.

    What about when they kill Christians?

    (I'm just in a fighting mood, having bumped into Scarecrow).

    Am I offended when they kill Christians? Not personally. Do I think it's "right"? No. Saudi culture is what it is. Now- if they come here and start killing Americans, regardless of religion? I will be highly offended.

    And in nations unfortunately dominated by Islam, women are REQUIRED to wear them.

    So much for their freedom of choice, eh?

    Well, I'm sure that reflects your views, but I'm not a Nazi and can't do what you obvioiusly like to do.

    Also, the last time I checked, Judaism doesn't require their women to hide in portable tents when out in public, nor have I seen too many Jewish terrorists stealing airplanes and murdering thousands of Americans with them.

    You know of any such incidents?
