Yes, 57 percent voted against a piece of architecture. And many Jews liked it, as a matter of fact. See for example the reaction of the head of the Swedish Pirate Party. Jewish activists like Henryk M.Broder, the porn writer, argues against Islam in the same way, not to mention Ralph Giordano, an important Jewish thinker in Germany. Anyway, it was a majority, but not a bog one and the Swiss are at a moral low anyway as far as strangers are concerned. See the Ghaddafi affairl, the victories of right-wing parties etc. So it is less an architecture problem but a general problem of civilisation. But it happens in a democracy and nobody ever wanted to restrict any other rights of Muslims, that do allready live in that ccountry, except this architecture thing.
