    RENOWNED Swiss politician Daniel Streich, who rose to fame for his campaign against minarets of mosques, has embraced Islam.
    A member of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP) and a well-known politician, Daniel Streich was the first man who had launched a drive for imposition of ban on mosques minarets, and to lock the mosques in Switzerland. The proclamation of Streich’s conversion to Islam has created furore in Swiss politics, besides causing a tremor for those who supported ban on construction of mosques minarets.
    Streich propagated his anti-Islamic movement far and wide in the country, sowed seeds of indignation and scorn for Islam among the people, and paved way for public opinion against pulpits and minarets of mosques.
    But now Streich has become a soldier of Islam. His anti-Islam thoughts finally brought him so close to this religion that he embraced Islam. He is ashamed of his doings now and desires to construct the most beautiful mosque of Europe in Switzerland.
    During his confrontation, Streich studied the Holy Quran and started understanding Islam.
    He wished to be hard to Islam, but the outcome was otherwise.
    SubhanAllah (Glory be to God), you want to attack Islam?

    Excellent news. However such conversion is nothing new as Islam's most staunchest enemies eventually embraced it many times in the past.

    Banning minarets =/= being against islam.

    It's unlikely, but surely you could be Islamic and still against overt religious shows. I don't care about Islam, I like Islam even, but I disagree with Minarets, massive churches and synagogues...anything. Laicite is far better.

    But on this specific bloke...WTF?!? This is insane...I don't quite know if I believe it...or want to believe it...

    Better than living with death threats I suppose, in the way that other opponents of Islam have...
    E.g. Salman Rushdie, or Geert Wilders, or the Dutch cartoonist (who was nearly murdered a month ago,) or Theo Van Gogh....




    The path of least resistance is to convert.

    But now Streich has become a soldier of Islam.
    Other religions' people are called followers. Islam's are called soldiers. I think that tells everyone all they need to know.
