I completely and totally oppose the Swiss vote. Saudi Arabia is not any kind of model for any enlightened community to follow. To the contrary we should be strong supporters of the rights of other minority religions in the diaspora because we are all potential victims of the majority. And this is clearly true in Switzerland, which banned shechita decades ago, and in which there is already a serious proposal to ban Jewish and Muslim cemetaries. We should listen to the European Conference of Rabbis; they know the situation in Europe far better than we do.
