Swiss voters back ban on minarets

Swiss voters have supported a referendum proposal to ban the building of minarets, official results show.

More than 57% of voters and 22 out of 26 cantons – or provinces – voted in favour of the ban.


The building that once was the largest in the world, the Hagia Sophia, had minarets added to it after the Turks took over Constantinople centuries ago.

Interestingly, the person selected to take office as EU President tomorrow, Herman Van Rompuy, has publicly stated:

“The universal values which are in force in Europe, and which are fundamental values of Christianity, will loose vigour with the entry of a large Islamic country such as Turkey.”

The Swiss vote, following the selection of Herman Van Rompuy as EU President, seems to show that many in Europe are taking a negative posture towards Muslim growth in their lands.

This will cause problems, temporary cooperation, and disaster for the Muslims in the future according to biblical prophecies.
