    Exclamation Swiss Minaret Ban Spills Over Europe

    Swiss Minaret Ban Spills Over Europe

    CAIRO A Swiss ban on the construction of mosque minarets is echoing across Europe, with calls in the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy for referendums to ban the Muslim symbol.

    "We will call upon the government to make a similar referendum possible in the Netherlands," Geert Wilders, the leader of the far-right Dutch Freedom Party, told Volkskrant daily Monday, November 30.

    Swiss voters backed Sunday a referendum initiated by the far-right Swiss People's Party (SVP) to ban the building of new minarets in the country.

    The referendum was forced under Swiss regulations after the SVP collected 100,000 signatures within 18 months from eligible voters to ban the minarets.

    The party claims that minarets are a symbol of Shari`ah and are thus incompatible with the Swiss legal system.

    "It's the first time that people in Europe have stood up to a form of Islamisation, said Wilders.

    What can be done in Switzerland, can be done here."

    Wilders, a far-right lawmaker, is notorious for his attacks against Islam and Muslims.

    He released in March 2008 a 15-minute documentary, entitled "Fitna" or sedition in Arabic, accusing the Noble Qur'an of inciting violence.

    The documentary drew international condemnation and was blasted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as "offensively anti-Islamic".

    Wilders had also called for banning the Muslim holy book, describing it as "fascist."

    He has also called for a halt to immigration from Muslim countries and a ban on the construction of mosques in the Netherlands.

    No to Minarets

    In Belgium, the right-wing Vlaams Belang said it would submit a decree to the Flemish regional parliament to ban minarets in the country, reported Agence France-Presse (AFP).

    The far-right party said the minarets damage their surroundings' existing cultural identity."

    The anti-immigrant Northern League also called for minaret ban in Italy.

    "Switzerland is sending us a clear signal: yes to bell towers, no to minarets," League member and minister of administrative simplification Roberto Calderoli said.

    "The flag of a courageous Switzerland which wants to remain Christian is flying over a near-Islamised Europe," added Mario Borghezio, a Euro-MP for the Northern League.

    The Northern League is widely accused of racism with many critics calling it the BNP of Italy, a reference to the British right-wing party.

    Its election campaign played on issues such as immigration, crime and economic and cultural fears from immigration.

    Portraying itself as a defender of Italy's Christian roots, it started its mission in Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconis new government in May 2008 with bringing down a mosque in the northern city of Verona.

    Last year, the League rejoiced the success of its campaign to halt the building of a mosque in the northern city of Bologna.

    Last year, League MP Mario Borghezio burst into a church in the northern city of Genoa shouting anti-Islam statements.

    O you who have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves, for they will not spare you [any] ruin. They wish you would have hardship. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason. 3.118

    And they say they are not at war with Islaam.
    Deeds are your money on the day of judgement , make sure you collect plenty now.


    Say (O Muhammad SAW):"I am not a new thing among the Messengers (of Allh) (i.e. I am not the first Messenger) nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am but a plain warner." (Al-Ahqaf 46:9)

    What is so special about having a minaret?

    Is it not prohibited to build a extravagant masjid?

    Will a masjid not be considered a masjid if it has no minaret?

    Does anyone have any evidences on this issue?

    This isn't really unique to Europe or a lot of other places, in fact. I was more scornful or the apparent disconnect between banning shaping concrete in the shape of a minaret and somehow stopping "extemist" islam ( or whatever they are afraid of).

    It's NOT about minarets.



    It's about Climate Change.
