CZECH REPUBLIC: “Should we fear Islam” debate in Czech Senate turned stormy after one speaker compared Islam to totalitarian regimes such as Nazism or Communism
In response, the ambassadors of several Muslim countries walked out in protest. The debate raised emotions and things came to a head when lawyer Klára Samková, a former member of the Block against Islam, took the stand to say that Islam should not be feared, but should be fought. She said:
Czech Radio “Islam is a totalitarian ideology that hides behind religion and abuses the fact that the Euro-American legal system is based on freedom of religion. It is a totalitarian ideology that is anti-human, anti-civilization and essentially the same as Nazism, Fascism or Communism.”

Irish Times Samková’s words reflected the policies of Czech President, Milos Zeman, who has built a huge wall on the border with Serbia to keep out the flood of Muslim invaders. At a rally, Zeman denounced members of Prague’s liberal elite “who assume the right to tell us what values we should be upholding”.
“They assume that citizens are like play-dough that can be shaped in a way that is convenient for the manipulator. But . . . we think independently and we reject the media manipulation in connection with the Muslim refugee crisis.”
Having previously warned that Muslims will impose brutal sharia law wherever they settle, Zeman defended every Czech’s right “to express his or her free opinion . . . without being silenced or labeled or abused as alleged extremists, xenophobes, Islamophobes, racists or fascists.” Zeman says things most other leaders wouldn’t dare:
Though the Czech Republic has few Muslim asylum seekers and is not on the main migration route to Germany, polls shows that almost two-thirds of its people oppose taking in rMuslim refugees.
Thousands of Czech citizens support their prime minister in saying “no” to the Muslim invasion.
