If I remember well in Switzerland the 'brith mila' is forbidden. I have no problem with that. If I would have a problem with that I would emigrate to Israel. By the way I totally disagree and would forbide "women Circumcision ". However, the real question is what happens at the public sphere. Jews should not be obliged to shave and Muslims women should not be disturbed if they want to wear the jihab ( not burqa) in the street. However, in PUBLIC schools and public office, the state has the right to determine that no religious symbols are permitted. That is the reason that there are private schools that in some cases might be subsidized by the state in order to condition the values that are imparted. You can learn about Islam, however, the Iman must have the consent of the state. In present times there is a backlash against multiculturalism in Europe which in some cases takes an exaggerated perfile. The same happens in Israel. It will fade away, and what will hopefully unfold is a new social contract by which "everybody is welcomed to the club"... that means no racism.... but the public sphere is dominated by an hegemonic public culture, Under that national culture there are, and there will be synagogues mosques and churches ( as in israel) . All free to practice their rituals which do not contrast with the hegemony of the national public culture preserved by the majority. The minority has the right to protest through peaceful and legal means. That is the meaning of liberal rights. No problem with this.
