Of course, that Swiss political party should not use any unkind words or pictures in its campaign to limit immigration. Many thoughtful people, however, understand that many Swiss people are concerned that too many immigrants (many of whom do not share traditional Swiss political, religious, or social values) many endanger the stability and tranquility of that beautiful, peaceful, and prosperous nation.

Switzerland is not neutral anymore. Sweden is much better!

Zurich is fulled of snotty upper class and racism is rampant there!

Switzerland is not a racist society against immigrants. We would love immigrants from Canada, Australia, the U.S., Japan, France, Scandinavia, but we don't need people from backward states like Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey, Somalia, Arabia, besides what can these sub-humans offer us?

Sorry to disagree profusely Pierre (and due to ignorance, really wondering who the subhuman is??) Im a canadian living in small town switzerland with a swiss boyfriend, and despite living in many cities world-wide, switzerland is an xenophobic hot bed. Many swiss hate and openly chastise americans (which makes many equally unwelcoming towards canadians (unable to differentiate the differences in culture). The german speakers also hate the french speakers and vice versa. Theres always exceptions as Ive met many lovely swiss, but overall life for foreigners is challenging.

Small is beautiful. Xenophobia towards "Big" is a side affect. Little dog Switzerland barks, big dog U.S. bites. None of them is better than the other. The target of the black sheep poster has absolutely nothing to do with US or Canadian citizens in Switzerland. Xenophobia towards the American subcontinent rather comes from the left wing, from those who hate the U.S. because of the Republicans et al...

Xenophobic,Theysaphobic,You`re aphobic. Come on now.
We Canadians make the biggest effort in correcting others if we`re mistaken for Amies.I use the term Amies because that`s what the average ciizen(not nessasarily Swiss)in Switzerland calls them.There`s a love/hate thing going on everywhere.Can you honestly call all Canadians liberal minded and cosmopolitan?
But you wouldn`t catch me living in Kriens any more than in Thunder Bay.
Interesting...the Swiss have meeting centres in all major cities, the Amies have "The American Club"the English have their "English Forum" and all the other ethnic groups have a meeting place, except....you guessed it Canadians.
We tend to just tag along with anyone!

You're a stupid person, Pierre Maeder. Why are these people sub-humans in your concepts? do you have some studies ? what do you do in your life ? I think you're a poor person without personality, without caracter, maybe a criminal.Maybe you need to.........just to open your mind. Try to find a swiss girl.They like to........with "sub-humans".Do you know why? ask them...

You're wrong Timothy and American. All money here in Switzerland comes from development crountries. Switzerland doesn't have anything except chocolates. They must shut up and acept all foreigners.If our money doesn't stay here anymore, Switzerland disappear.

If Around the world and For you are unhappy in Switzerland then let them pack up and book a direct flight to Mogadishu or Mecca.
Now regarding For you's comment about "our money", the only reason your leaders trust their money in Swiss hands is probably because it is money earned thru corruption and also they do not have faith in their financial system.

Hey Pierre Maeder,

Your words are senseless. Just because certain indivicuals live in third world countries, it makes no sense of you to say that these guys are "sub-humans" and can make no difference. If you consider "just" reading the western world's history, it were the muslims who originated from the eastern world to make such great discoveries on which the western world is successful today. The crime rates are so high in the western world including switzerland, are not in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt or Turkey. Furthermore, these "sub-humans" are actually the ones who can change alot of things in Switzerland.

LEARN HOW TO TRUST OTHERS, YOU LOSER!

Maaz Inam what the hell are you doing in 'crime infested' West? I wonder why punks like you have left behind the paradise of mohammad and are trying to be smart in western forums.
Shame on you, kafir, pack up and off to Dhaka or Karachi.

It is already too late for Switzerland and way too late for the rest of Westen Europe. Remember the end of the Roman Empire. The west is collapsing from within - societies are being willingly given away to anyone... Who cares whether you become poorer with no foreigners - you will be safer.

By the way I am a foreigner in Switzerland but I look around the once beautiful city of Geneva and despair - its already gone to the dogs....

Pierre says: I am a Swiss Banker based in Cyprus and highly educated and successful in life.
> Yeah, a swiss banker based in Cyprus???? Swiss Bankers are in Switzerland as you cannot have a Swiss Bank with all the licences and be based in Cyprus. Or you are a drug dealer or one of those scammers based in scam country like Cyprus.
Disappointed: Geneva is not dirty because of foreigners, there's no money left to clean the trees and chemein forestiers where nobody goes. if you live in switzerland, you know what i mean.
When i was a kid they even clean the trees to "waste" money or to "keep people busy". Later some of the people called Switzerland: "Le paradis des travailleurs" "Workers' paradise". Now Switzerland has to work as there are more countries with what some on this forum call "subhumas" who work harder.
That's capitalism baby, and no free lunch anymore and no cheap oil, grains etc...
European and US have difficulties adapting to that."subhuman" want their share of capitalism.
Now Switzerland is bitching with Russia, Iran and in a couple of years they'll come whinning like babies.
enough said....
Life goes on...

Ok I am not racist, but I have to say that I dislike most of the people that Pierre Maeder describes as sub-humans. It's nothing personal, but years of hate. As far as imigration We should have a United Europe that does not allow outsiders to come in-(With a few exepsions)
