How amazingly and suicidally stupid of ‘Jewish organizations’ to buy in to the worst reasoning possible on the minaret ban and support the Muslims. It’s like cows supporting building abattoirs because they think it will help them build a greenhouse. A mosque is not an analogue for church or synagogue, and a minaret is not an analogue for a bell tower. Jewish liberals world wide seem to think that it shows character to imagine that the Muslims in Europe today are like the Jews of the 1930s, and defend them as if they were. Its insanely untrue. The Jews of Germany were the most integrated of Europe and maybe the world. They were in fact, merely Germans overall and were most certainly not rioting in the streets, constituting the majority of the criminal population and attempting to force Germany to live under Mosaic law.
Mosques preach the gospel of Jew hatred in sermons as part of the orthodoxy of Islam. It is a central dogma. No such analogy can be found in Christianity or Judaism and certainly not as it is practised today. Lastly, when invective is hurled at Islam, (and I do it as easily as breathing) it is not at a race or any group not defined by behaviour. For some reason people have lost the ability to discriminate between what racism is, and what healthy critique of behaviour is. Perhaps that is because for generations now, we are taught that discrimination itself, a thing without which nothing that lives can survive, is wrong.
Specifically, if a person decides to leave Islam as a bad set of ideas they can carry on as part of any other belief group they want. They no longer would be a recipient of my invective if that were to matter to them. However when Muslims repeat that oft used phrase about the last day and killing all the Jews, it makes absolutly no difference if that person is an atheist, agnostic, Buddhist etc. only that the label ‘Jew’ can be applied. In this, it is a real racism even if Jews are not a race. Islam is a belief system like Nazis (with whom it has a great deal in common) or Communism, another group that has slaughtered millions upon millions for its superstitious ideology. (And if you do not think communism is superstitious, read the Communist agricultural manifesto someday and try and grow something using it) but like Nazis or comunists, they are free to leave it and no longer wear that label as criticism of a belief based group is more than rational, it is the obligation of free people. For the Jews of the world to support Muslims in their plan for primacy of Switzerland and everywhere else using Mosques and minarets as footholds, is suicidally stupid and shows a dramatic lack of understanding of the real situation. Egyptian Christians however, who actually have lived with these kind of restrictions off and on since Moe and his slaughtering brigands swept through North Africa raping and killing and oppressing all the way like some kind of macabre Santa actually felt it was a little divine justice and point out the astonishing hypocrisy of the Muslim world for objecting to it.

Jews back Muslims on minaret ban
Citing religious discrimination, a diverse coalition of Jewish organizations is objecting to Switzerland’s ban of minarets on local mosques.
Swiss voters this week approved by a strong majority a referendum outlawing the construction of minarets. The measure, pushed by the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP), was supported by 57 percent of the population.
However, Jewish organizations, realizing that a crackdown on Islam could have repercussions for Jews as well, have come to the defense of Muslim worshipers, arguing that the Swiss’s move was unjustifiable.
Rabbi Pinchas Dunner, executive director of the Conference of European Rabbis, an Orthodox organization, said “a war on religious freedom cannot defeat Islamic extremists. The best weapon against radical Islam is support for moderate elements in the Muslim community and promoting interfaith dialogue.”
In contrast, the Anti-Defamation League tied the move to religious discrimination against Jews.
“This is not the first time a Swiss popular vote has been used to promote religious intolerance,” said the ADL in a press release. “A century ago, a Swiss referendum banned Jewish ritual slaughter, in an attempt to drive out its Jewish population.”
