How well thought out this banishment is.
While we're at it, let's ban church spires, funny statues on top of Hindu temples and Chinese style rooves.
I now nominate Switzerland as the Malaysia of Europe (I previously said somewhere that Malaysia is the Homer Simpson of countries).
The Swiss are afraid of Muslims. Too often I encounter a similar sentiment here. It's utterly depressing.
Let me try to describe a scene that is ingrained in my mind since my last trip to Indonesia. Be warned it is very terrifying.
I found myself in a small village / community in part of Jakarta where the original Jakartans live - the Betawi.
The fun fair is in full swing. It's a very small amateurish affair that's pitched on a small communal patch of land, nevertheless the local village kids are having a great time playing the quaint games.
The smallest kids are learning how to 'fish' at a tiny blow up rubber pool. Using magnetic hooks to fish the small colourful plastic toy fish up. A parent or two is on hand to help them out if they need help but soon they're merrily fishing away.
Shivering in your boots?
The Swiss tell us more about the Swiss than anyone else after this ban on minarets. Shameful.
