Switzerland: Swiss People’s Party Reveals Anti-Minaret Poster Campaign

GENEVA – The Commission Against Racism said on October 7 that an anti-minaret poster campaign by the Swiss People’s Party defamed the country’s Muslim minority and could threaten public peace, the AFP reported on October 7.  The poster depicts a woman wearing a burka against a background of a Swiss flag upon which several minarets resembling missiles are erected, and is aimed at getting the population to vote for a ban on minarets in Switzerland in a referendum scheduled for November 2009.

  1. I applaud your frank presentation of this and related matters. Oh that the media in Britain were so frank, and so dedicated to upholding the ethic of freedom of expression. Well done to you! Keep it up and don’t ever be browbeaten into silence.
