Q.

The Swiss army recently approved an arrangement for Muslim soldiers.
The regulations cover both dietary customs (not eating pork) and hours of prayer. Muslims make up practically 10% of the manpower and they are all immigrants, mostly from Nigeria and other poverty ridden African countries. Next you will hear a train blown up in Switzerland, a busy square bombed there etc. Your comments pls?

If I am not mistaking Switzerland is the first country to ban Minars on mosques!

They are giving these concessions to their hired soldiers only to which I think they have no option for.

Bye the way did you know that Switzerland is the only country on this planet which never fought a war! And thats why it is more surprising that they need an Army at first instance & secondly how can they expect loyalty from outsiders for their nation!

Sire, tht's why they said Nigeria, and AFRICAN countries. I can bet u my privates that Sudan, Libya, Somalia- to name a few arent in the list. Most Muslims armed factions in AFrica fight over warlordism more so than theocracy. And in that respect ala warlordism- a Muslim is no better than a Sikh or a Buddhist.

I could find u Muslims in a dozen African locales that don't subscribe to theocracy. Swiss are not taking people from Pakistan, Middle East or from Chechnya.

And I think it is grossly unfair to compare Muslims from Africa 2 Muslims from Middle East. If u look at "Jihadist" AFrica, which is a negligibly small percent of Islamic Africa- u will note dat all of those groups r headed by a Middle East faction. Even in Chechnya the leader was Ibn Al Khattab, a Saudi Arabian national. Osama Bin Laden's from Saudi 2. All of the hijackers of 9/11 were from Saudi.

Forget the Swiss, I encourage u to look up FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION on the internet. These guys basically accept any fo ...more
