    Correct, there is inherrent inequality on the basis of religion.

    And why was that Iranian complaining about the Swiss? Switzerland is not a state controled by religious fanaticism or fundamentalism last time I checked... Couldn't there be another reason they want to scrap the Minarets?

    The reason or reasons are probably as complicated as the Swiss psyche. We're a very odd lot here. An anomaly by European standards. This article I read the other day is totally spot on. We tried to fix an inexistent problem and created a whole bunch of new problems in the process, which we'll probably set out to fix eventually in ways that everyone else will disaprove of or misunderstand :

    This part is so essentially Swiss it's not even funny :

    The prevailing Swiss attitude is both conservative and liberal: on the one hand everything should stay the way it is, on the other everyone should be able to do what he or she wants.
