It Doesn't Take Much To Push Europe Down That Slippery Slope...

Rightists strengthen hold on Swiss Parliament
After a campaign troubled by violence and widely criticized as racist, Switzerland's far-right Swiss People's Party strengthened its position as the biggest single party in Parliament on Sunday, according to initial electoral projections. [...]

The Swiss People's Party, or SVP, which campaigned on an aggressively anti-immigrant ticket featuring posters that showed white sheep kicking a black sheep off the Swiss flag, received about 29 percent of the vote and 61 of the 200 seats in Parliament, projections showed, up from 27 percent and 55 seats in 2003. It was comfortably ahead of the Social Democratic Party, which dropped from 23 percent of the vote to 19 percent and was projected with 43 seats, as opposed to 52 in the most recent Parliament.
The Muslims would do well to remember that Europe is always about one vote away from a pogrom. As the man said:

The dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe. - Tom Wolfe (Referencing French Socialist Jean-François Revel)
