EuropeNews: Der Präsident von Tschechien, Milos Zeman, der die Botschaft der tschechischen Republik von Tel Aviv nach Jerusalem verlegen will, sagte, das Attentat in Brüssel gehe auf das Konto des Islams, nicht des Islamismus. Prague Post berichtet, dass er der islamischen Ideologie und nicht den religiösen Fundamentalisten die Schuld gibt an dem Mord an vier Menschen in einem jüdischen Museum in Brüssel. Zeman sprach in einer Rede anlässlich des 66. Jahrestags der Unabhängigkeit Israels von einer heimtückischen Tat. Er werde sich nicht von Randgruppen den Mund verbieten lassen. Im Gegenteil, er glaube, dass die Fremdenfeindlichkeit und der Rassismus oder Antisemitismus genau der Natur der Ideologie entspringe, auf die diese fanatischen Gruppen bauen. Einer der heiligen Texte des Islams rufe zum Töten von Juden auf, sagte er.
Czech Republic president, Milos Zeman, who is considering moving the Czech Republic embassy in Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital in Jerusalem, said, “Islamic ideology rather than individual groups of religious fundamentalists, is behind the kind of violent actions similar to the shooting attack at the Jewish Museum in Brussels that killed four People„.
Prague Post: Zeman’s speech sharply condemning “the hideous attack” was posted on his official website today. Zeman took part in the celebration of the 66 years of independence of Israel.
“I will not be calmed down by statements that it is only small marginal groups. I believe, on the contrary, that this xenophobia and this racism or anti-Semitism stem from the very nature of the ideology on which these fanatical groups rely,” Zeman said. He said one of the sacred texts of Islam calls for the killing of Jews.
Zeman said he would also sharply criticize fanatics who planned to kill the Arabs. “However, I have heard of no movement calling for the massive murder of Arabs, but I know about an anti-civilization movement that calls for the massive murdering of Jews,” he said.
Zeman is known for his criticism of international terrorism and its links to Islam. He repeatedly called for resolute opposition to violent terrorist actions during his official visits abroad. Zeman said he attended the reception held on Israel’s Independence Day out of “solidarity with a friend.”
