The Swiss Move the Muslim Cheese, and the Muslims are Not Pleased

The Muslims are up in arms over the Swiss vote to prohibit construction of minarets in Switzerland. AOL News reported the following:

"The Swiss have failed to give a clear signal for diversity, freedom of religion and human rights," said Omar Al-Rawi, integration representative of the Islamic Denomination in Austria, which said its reaction was "grief and deep disappointment."

What, exactly, does Mr. Al-Rawi expect? The Swiss, after all, are infidels, are they not? I wonder what his reaction was when the Taliban destroyed Buddhist shrines in Afghanistan. Was that a signal for diversity? Is Iranian persecution of Jews and Christians a signal for diversity? Etc., etc.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

The pot calling the kettle black.

Also - you're confusing "muslim" with "muslim extremist." Or, you're suggesting that "muslim" is synonymous with "taliban."

You're also confusing "Austrian Muslim" with "Iranian Muslim Extremist."

Preemptively: Does my unwillingness to discriminate against all muslims based on the actions/beliefs of the extremist minority make me an antisemite? I'd say not. I'd say it makes me a good Jew.

The first step in the selection of the most effective concrete repair technique is diagnosing the cause of failure, and ensuring that the technique used makes the repaired area resistant to this original cause of failure. If this is not done, the repair will fail; it is also likely that the damage will be extended to the adjoining parts of the structure.
