Actually, I am Swiss and I have to say that the vote does not represent 
Switzerland. In
fact, a lot of people didn't vote because they were sure it would never 
pass. They just
came out with an official analysis/statistics of the vote results and it 
shows that people
with higher education voted against the ban, that Christians voted for 
the ban and
atheists against it. Also, if you look at the outcome for each Canton 
(State), the rural
ones voted for the ban and the metropolitan/cosmopolitan ones against 
it. What happened
is basically what happened in Nazi Germany, a strong campaign for the 
masses and sadly
it worked.

I have several Russian friends and I have no idea what their view is on 
the subject. Russia
has several Muslim ethnic groups and with most there seems to be no 
problem (I'm excluding
Chechnya, even thought the conflict is more about power than religion).
