Paris attacks fuel Swiss fears of Islamisation

ust 48 hours after the killings at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine, around a dozen people in Zurich formed a branch of the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West, or Pegida, movement that started in Germany last autumn and has seen its support soar since the French attacks. (Although it should be said that anti-Pegida demos have attracted even bigger crowds).

The new Pegida offshoot wasted no time in announcing its first demonstration in an undisclosed location on 16th February. It also published a manifesto on facebook that calls among other things for a ban on burkas and resistance to “a political ideology that is anti-woman and stresses violence”.

“We have to stop Islamisation in Switzerland,” an anonymous Pegida Switzerland leader told the Sunday paper, SonntagsZeitung. “This is about being able to continue living by Christian values in Switzerland”…

    “We have to stop Islamisation in Switzerland”

      If they shut off migration NOW, there might be a chance. At this rate it’s looking bad. I was imagining that the Muslims would patiently bide their time, keep a low profile, and eventually win a “demographic jihad”.

      But lately, with all these local “events”, their P.R. could not look worse and people are getting fed up.

  • Just a thought

    If the Swiss can’t stop ’em, no one can…

  • It’s a reasonable fear.

    Face it! In a few generations, we’ll will be in full scale civil war against the Islamists.

    Europe for Islamic Apartheid! No More Garbage Bags.
