Disturbing conclusions from the U.S.: A senior government official has made astounding statements about the ban on minarets in Switzerland. Before the assembled world press, he explained clearly that the Federal Council was working to overturn the result of the referendum. The Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (EDA), according to the “Sonntag” newspaper, reacts with surprise.

In his statement as the head of the Human Rights Division in the U.S. State Department, Michael Posner, told the media the following on Wednesday, when the conversation turned to alleged harassment of Muslims in Western Europe

“The Government of Switzerland – and I’ve spoken repeatedly with their representatives -. Is now working hard to overturn the ban (on minarets.)”

In effect, this meant that Swiss Muslims would again have the right to build minarets, he said, according to the newspaper “Sonntag”.

The Swiss Embassy in Washington would, according to the Journal, not comment on this statement. Behind closed doors, it has been referred to as a likely misunderstanding – because ultimately the Swiss Federal Council does not have the legal means to ignore the result of a valid referendum.
The Swiss Foreign Ministry has learned about Mr. Posner’s statements, responded the spokeswoman Carole Wälti to “Sonntag”. Posner’s comments, that there have been efforts by the Swiss government to lift the ban on minarets, are baseless. There have also been “no talks held with Michael Posner,” added Wälti.

  1. Michael Posner’s Human Rights First, if it ever served any practical purpose in the way of defending real human rights, must have gone the way of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, both of which have thrown women, gays and their human rights under the bus for the sole purpose of becoming useful idiots for the forces of islamization.

  2. The problem with most diplomats is they fail to follow one basic rule. One must put their brain in gear bbefore opening one’s mouth.

  3. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch both have nice sounding names, but both have almost always worked to further the goals of the left, now the left supports Islam in their fight against the west so both of them do also. Always remember actions speak louder then words.

  4. Here is Michael Posner, at 5:00, thanking representatives of such paragons of human rights such as China, Libya, Qatar, Egypt, Cuba, Nicaragua and Iran for all the load of camel dung they’ve dumped on the US at the UN inHuman Rights Council.

    You simply cannot make such qurap up….
