Wising up in Switzerland

Switzerland may be among the most anti-Semitic countries on earth, but they sure are learning how to deal with their Muslim problem.

You will recall that about a year ago, Switzerland passed a law banning new minarets from being constructed in the country. Now, Switzerland has passed a law to automatically deport foreigners convicted of crimes.
Swiss national broadcaster SF1 said 52.9 percent of voters backed the initiative in Sunday's referendum, a plan proposed by the nationalist Swiss People's Party (SVP).

A counter-proposal put forth by the Swiss government, which would make expulsion dependent on the length of a prison term rather on an arbitrary list of offenses, appears to have been rejected by most voters, according to preliminary results. Currently, decisions to expel foreigners convicted of serious crimes are made on a case-by-case basis.

The initiative, which would apply to foreigners convicted of crimes like murder, rape or trafficking in drugs or people, has been criticized by human rights groups and legal experts, who said it could disregard international anti-discrimination treaties and the free movement of peoples under European Union law.

Switzerland, while not an EU member, does allow EU citizens to take residence without special permission.

Foreigners make up more than a fifth of Switzerland's population of 7.7 million, and according to official figures are disproportionately charged with crimes.
The Swiss are not willing to allow themselves to be overrun by Muslims. Would that England and France and other countries in Europe had the same desire to decide to live in a western society before it's too late to decide.
