From your link to Pravda.ru

A group of Muslim immigrants wants to force Switzerland to abandon the current flag - a white cross on the red background. They say that it violates the rights of the representatives of non-Christian confessions.

So a group. Please define this group.

There are groups in the US who want the rebel flag to be the national flag.

Another non-issue.

Things like what? Separation of church and state? Already have it.

Things like some group wanting something that is never going to happen?

So what.

It still is, only now it's a neo-Soveit Russian nationalist rag that has not quite the journalistic integrity of the National Enquirer.

Seriously, it's a hoot. I actually know some of the people that run it, like Timi Bancroft-Hinchely. He's a raving lunatic LOL.

How do you "force" Switzerland to do something by "proposing" something that Swiss voters would be able to vote for, or against?

If you are so "All American" how come you don't recognize Democracy when it's right in front of your face?

I'm getting very scared. Muslims could take over the U.S. and override our constitution and culture. But what can we do? Prevent Muslims from entering the country unless they convert to Christianity? Start a holy war? How do we protect ourselves from this coming invasion where our children will be raped and forced to bow to Allah?
