Czech Republic President Milos Zeman will run for another term. He confirmed this fact during a meeting with key backers this week. He is an outspoken opponent of Muslim immigration and a opponent of EU policies.
His spokesman, Jiří Ovčáček, caused consternation in Brussels when he tweeted that “Trump protects his country, he’s concerned with the safety of his citizens. Exactly what EU elites do not do”, shortly after the U.S. president first introduced travel restrictions on asylum seekers and nationals of certain countries identified as a terror risk by the Obama administration, reported Breitbart News.
Here are some notable quotes on the migration issue as well as gun control.
“If European countries accept a wave of migrants, there will be terrorist groups among them, of which also a Libyan minister has warned.”
“By accepting the migrants, we strongly facilitate Islamic State’s expansion to Europe.”
“Muslims should remain in the countries where they live [and] they should work in them, and they should not go to Europe, where they do not want to work.”
He encouraged Czechs “To arm themselves against terrorists”, as in Israel, where “almost every man walks with a machine gun over his shoulder” and perpetrating Paris-style attacks on the ordinary public is much more difficult.
“The experience of Western European countries which have ghettos and excluded localities shows that the integration of the Muslim community is practically impossible.”
“Let them have their culture in their countries and not take it to Europe, otherwise it will end up like Cologne.”
