Muslims Plan "Parallel Parliament" In Switzerland

Muslims Plan "Parallel Parliament" In Switzerland

http://www.stonegateinstitute.org/28...nt-switzerland

"Leading Islamic groups in Switzerland are seeking to establish a single national representative body that will enable all of the country's Muslims to "speak with one voice."

The organizers say their new "parliament" will be called "Umma Schweiz" and be based on the principles of Islamic Sharia law. The headquarters of the organization will be located in Basel with "representatives" in all 26 cantons (or "states") of Switzerland. The first "test vote" of Umma Schweiz will be held in the fall of 2012; the group will be fully functional in 2013.................."

See what 5% gets ya'.

Please hold the "It will never happen here" rhetoric.

A liberal court will make it happen..

In September 2011, for instance, an immigrant group based in Bern called for the emblematic white cross to be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol it "no longer corresponds to today's multicultural Switzerland.".

Minarets spoiling your view of Edelweiss dotted Alpine meadows and daily caterwallerings to let the neighbors know you've got a ferret clamped to your testicles and you'd like to share the pain is one thing, this would be something else if it went beyond the idea of an organization which would merely speak for the Muslim community as a single voice.

We'll see.
