'the foreigners'' is always the hottest topic in Switzerland for debate ! The Swiss People Party (right wing) won the Federal elections after launching a xenophobic racist campaign. 4 years ago, Swiss people voted against a referendum called '' Nationality Facilitation '' the subject of this referendum was to give Swiss nationality to the third generation of the resident foreigners ( to the foreigner who was born and lived in Switzerland and his father before him was born and lived in Switzerland ). Thus, the racism and xenophobia in Switzerland are FACT (proved), not something to argue about !

If you ask a Swiss why is that ? he will answer '' we don't want extreme islam in switzerland '', hehehe but they are big liars, because Swiss people are racist from long time ago, there are many films show bad did they treat the italian and spanish immigrant workers before 1980, they abused them and treated them as slaves. in addition, how Swiss did treat the jews during the II world War? Switzerland refused the jews refugees and sent them to the Nazi German camps to gaz them, and helped Hitler to take care of the Stolen Jewsih Gold, kept them into the Swiss dirty secret accounts, after the war, Swiss banks used this gold in many investments.

And anyway, there is absolutely no extreme islamists in switzerland, arabs and muslims who live there are rich and well educated ( most often: saudi princes, diplomats, investors, students and researchers ), because life in switzerland is very expensive and it is a small multilanguage country.

Swiss always reply '' no we are not racist, look at countries like pakistan and iran, we are better '', hahahha they compare themselves with some retarded islmic countries, yes they are better than these countries, but does Switzerland deserve to be called '' a democratic modern country ''?!!! the answer is NO.

In my opinion, if you are a foreigner '' don't live in switzerland ''( only if you want to save money and if you are sure 100% that you'll get a good job ''.

STOP immigration now in Australia. Europeans from albania, kosovo, kazakhstan, yugoslavias, serbs ashould be banned too.

?? Have you been to Switzerland? While it may be true that racism still exists here, it is more an idea of change that most fear. Zurich however is the most multi-cultural city in Switzerland (with the exception of Geneva) and plenty of immigrants thrive there.

Head out to the farmlands and you may well experience some closed mindedness however not really in Zurich. Get your facts straight. And as for snotty upper class people, hit any major city i.e. Paris, Rome, Zurich, London and you are there are going to be snobby assholes.. Its called social status and it exists everywhere.

Buy a book.

Oh don't worry about Zurich. Their not nearly as bad as the smaller cities and villages in and around Switzerland. Still they have not caused a million deaths like americans have in the Mid East.

I think it's funny that you defend Switzerland against being racist by calling South and Central Asians "Sub-Humans." Could there be a better example of Swiss racism in this blog?

I am an immigrant in Switzerland. I came here with a job as an engineer. However I believe immigration should be limited. That means immigrants should be allowed only with specific conditions. They should serve the society they live in. In other words illegal immigrants or immigrants who come in for their own benefits (I.e. Marrying Swiss people for citizenship etc) should not be allowed. They must serve the society they live in! Letting in people for such low reasons leads to "unelegant" misunderstandings and situations. My friend was recently attacked by a middle aged Asian woman with no apparent
reason. It turns out her husband was looking at
her and the woman got jealous... Is this right? NO! This is because Switzerland, being tolerant, lets in everyone without expecting cultural integration from them. Expecting a minimum if cultural integration from the people who come in is the minimum!
All these online marrying sites and importing women from abroad (on further investigation it was found that the woman was "brought" (illegally??) from Thailand) are having a negative influence on the tranquillity of the country.

Btw: my friend who was attacked is a beautiful down to earth Swiss and WAS tolerant with foreigners... This event changed her opinion on immigrants and now she feels Switzerland is polluted with "online revolution" through which men "buy" women online and bring them here with no will on their part to integrate... They probably just want the easy life that the country offers WITHOUT offering much to the country... In many cases they stay with the guy until they have the swiss citizenship and then ask for separation. Please correct me if I m wrong.... And remember I said "most" and not "all" cases.
Could one solution be to ask the Swiss guys to be happy with their own women? I mean... They are gorgeous too! Why look so far away for someone who just wants to put threir hands down your pockets?
