    Swiss Leader Calls for Jewish Cemetery Ban

    BERLIN (JTA) -- A mainstream Swiss political leader is calling for a ban on separate Muslim and Jewish cemeteries.

    Christophe Darbellay, president of the Christian Democratic People's Party of Switzerland, made the statement in a television interview Tuesday, two days after Swiss voters passed an initiative to ban minarets.

    The anti-minaret initiative came from the opposition ultra-conservative Swiss People's Party and other right-wing political organizations. Critics say Darbellay is starting a "crusade" to attract voters by proposing similarly xenophobic measures.

    Mainstream politicians and religious leaders across Europe have reacted with dismay to the anti-minaret vote.

    According to the Swiss online daily Tagesanzeiger, Darbellay also wants to ban the wearing of burkas, head-to-toe veils worn by some fundamentalist Muslim women.

    Darbellay reportedly said that existing cemeteries would not be affected by a ban, but that there should be no separate cemeteries in the future.

    The Swiss People's Party called for crackdowns on expressions of Muslim fundamentalism in 2006. Observers said the demand for separate cemeteries is an escalation.

    Politician apologizes for calling to ban Jewish, Muslim cemeteries

    A Swiss politician has apologized today for calling for a ban on Jewish and Muslim cemeteries two days after the country voted to outlaw minarets on mosques.

    "I am sorry. I didn't mean it like that," said Christopher Darbellay, president of the Christian Democratic People's Party of Switzerland, a centrist party and the smallest member of the government coalition.

    "It was about the principle that we all belong to the same Swiss society," he added.

    In his call for the ban, Darbellay said, "I don't imagine that in this country, every religion or sect can have a separate cemetery in every town. It wouldn't be manageable to make these exceptions. ... Principle requires that one does not distinguish on the basis of origin or religion."

    Darbellay has also called for a ban on burkas or veils worn by some Muslim women.

    What is so xenophobic about mixed cemeteries ? it doesn't get more multicultural then that...

    No, do not ban separate cemeteries, just do what most muslims do, send the corpse to be buried in the land where they came from, i do not know what jews do but they can do the same and go with them.

    Indeed, one would almost think that the editor and journalist of that piece wants segregation . But maybe the political leader who made this statement is trying to get the result of the minaret-referendum undone by making this kind of statements.

    I'm for adopting the custom that we sprinkle all cemeteries in our lands with pig blood. This would be our custom, and unassailable without the complainer being denounced as a hate-filled anti-Germanic racist bigot. If anyone doesn't like it, they should go elsewhere.

    The idea to ban Muslim cemeteries came before this, uttered from the mouth of a SVP politician:

    "Forced marriages and other things like cemeteries separating the pure and impure – we don't have that in Switzerland and we don't want to introduce it," said Ulrich Schlüer, co-president of the Initiative Committee to ban minarets.

    Liberal neocons, that's what they are.

    "It was about the principle that we all belong to the same Swiss society," he added.
    Nah, you don't. Muslims and Jews have nothing to do with being Swiss.

    Principle requires that one does not distinguish on the basis of origin or religion."
    Which ones? The globalist, we are all equal principles? Moron.

    "Forced marriages and other things like cemeteries separating the pure and impure – we don't have that in Switzerland and we don't want to introduce it," said Ulrich Schlüer, co-president of the Initiative Committee to ban minarets.
    Nah, let's separate the pure from the impure.

    These idiots need to realize screaming about them not integrating is like treating cancer with Aspirin. Ban foreigners and that solves it. How thick do you have to be to realize that?
