According to this, a Muslim lobbying group in Bern has called for the white cross to be removed from the Swiss National Flag, because it’s a Christian symbol which “no longer corresponds to today’s multicultural Switzerland.” This group plans to “launch a nationwide campaign in October to ask Swiss citizens to consider adopting a flag that is less offensive to Muslim immigrants.”
Let me just state for the record that I love the American flag with all my heart and soul just the way it is, but right at this moment, I’m kinda wishing it had a cross on it just so it would PISS OFF MUSLIMS WHO WOULD DARE CRITICIZE A NATIONAL FLAG.
The VP of this lobbying group said that “it is necessary to separate church and state” because “Switzerland today has a great religious and cultural diversity. One has to ask if the State wants to continue building up a symbol in which many people no longer believe.”
I don’t know about you, but I want to punch that VP in the face. She claims that Switzerland needs new symbols with which everyone can identify. What a total bunch of crap.
Thankfully, this entire proposal has much of the politicians balking, regardless of their political affiliation. But it’s expected that all of the growing anti-Muslim sentiment in Switzerland is going to get worse because of this.
Muslims in that country now number around 400,000, which is still just 5% of the population, but they’re becoming more and more demanding about having their Islamic faith recognized. Sounds familiar, huh? *Cough* Ground Zero Mosque *cough*. The last thing in the entire world that they want is to melt into any sort of pot. Assimilation simply isn’t part of their game plan.
Unless, that is, you’re talking about assimilating YOURSELF into the Islamic culture. That, of course, they’re completely ok with.
Stay strong, Switzerland.
