The strength of DEMOCRACY is in Majority rule not support of minorities
Used indiscriminately, what you are talking about would just amount to mob rule.
It makes sense for majority rule amongst a group of people with a common interest or stake in a matter. People should not be voting on matters that do not concern them.
Americans do not get a vote on matters that pertain to Canada, because its not your business. If you did, your majority numbers would outweigh Canadian numbers. It would be unfair.
Similarly, within countries, it is stupid to have the entire country vote on matters that only involve a small portion of the population. It should be up to Muslims to decide what their places of prayer should look like. What business is it of any non-Muslim? If there are noise and height restrictions on buildings then they should apply to every building; not just those of a particular religion.
What you are talking about is not democracy, it is mob rule.

When were the Swiss asked if they wanted 400,000 muslims *if we even take that figure as true, as with most "official" estimates, the true figure would probably be much higher* suddenly dwelling within their borders- which Islamic country should we look to for encouragement, were the Swiss not "enriched" by their own existence, did they not have a relatively safe, stable, democracy and were so bereft that they required 400,000 Muslims to enrich their lives?
I think not, and they were never asked such questions, their traitorous elite allowed this situation to occur, and when finally asked they gave their opinion (and even that question was only on the aspect of minarets, look how the liberal apologists shriek about that)

I like that approach.
How are muslims enriching the lives of non-muslims?
Answer... not much.

This issue might be presented before the European court for human rights in Strassbourg, which could theoretically declare the initiative as void. Anyhow, we will see how this develops. The last word isn't spoken by far.

Why do muslims think they are above the laws of countries that are not Islamic?
Qur'an:9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."
Tabari IX:69 "Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah's helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us."
Ishaq:578 "Crushing the heads of the infidels and splitting their skulls with sharp swords, we continually thrust and cut at the enemy. Blood gushed from their deep wounds as the battle wore them down. We conquered bearing the Prophet's fluttering war banner. Our cavalry was submerged in rising dust, and our spears quivered, but by us the Prophet gained victory."
