The Swiss vote on the 29th of November, 2009 turned the popular initiative against constructing minarets into a law with a 60% majority of voters. The vote reflects xenophobia and the negative image of Islam or Islamophobia held by the proponents of the initiative. This fear has to be dealt with by psychologists and sociologists.
