Muslim group to deploy 'Jewish star' at Bern rally
by Meritxell Mir
The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland (ICCS), a conservative Muslim group, has chosen a symbol reminiscent of the Jewish Star of David for a planned protest against Islamophobia this weekend.
Around 2,000 people are expected to participate in the 'Day against Islamophobia and racism', a mini-festival organized by ICCS in the capital Bern that will run from 2 to 5pm on Saturday.
In an attempt to draw parallels between the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany and Muslims in the Switzerland of today, many participants will wear t-shirts and stickers with the word 'Muslim' framed by a yellow star.
