LONDON — There are only four minarets in Switzerland: one for every hundred thousand Muslims in the country. Swiss Muslims keep a low profile, so as not to excite the numerous people in the country who hate and fear them. But since those people are numerous, a political party can prosper by demanding a referendum on whether further minarets should be banned in Switzerland. With luck, that will provoke protests and demonstrations by Muslims.
There is only one nuclear power station under construction in Iran, at Bushehr, and none that is operational. The fuel for the Bushehr reactor will be supplied by Russia, under a contract that was signed long ago. So when the Iranian government orders 10 new uranium enrichment plants for reactors that have not even been designed yet, you may safely
assume that it is trying to provoke an attack on Iran.
