Zeman: Accepting refugees plays into Islamic State's hands

Zeman: Mass migration organized by the Muslim Brotherhood

Czech president says that migration is part of a planned gradual takeover of Europe

Czech President Miloš Zeman said that the mass migration of refugees from the Middle East into Europe is organized by the Muslim Brotherhood.

In an interview broadcast live from Prague Castle on Czech Radio Plus (ČRo Plus), Zeman said that the Muslim Brotherhood cannot start a war against Europe, but they can gain control of the Continent through gradual migration.

“They do not have the power to start a war in Europe, but what they can do is prepare an increasing migration wave and by degrees dominate Europe, just like they have done in some Western cities, where already policemen are afraid to go at night,” Zeman said.

The president cited as a source of his information Moroccan Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar, who Zeman said recently claimed the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to dominate not only the entire Muslim world, but not the entire world.

Another source Zeman mentioned was the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates, whom he claims called the Muslim Brotherhood called an umbrella organization of Islamic terrorist groups.

“On the basis of these two sources of information, in both cases from Muslims and from prominent Arab politicians, I believe that this invasion is organized by the Muslim Brotherhood, of course, using the funds from a number of states,” Zeman said.

Zeman also criticized some European politicians for welcoming refugees and reiterated his notion that young men leaving Syria and Iraq should fight the Islamic State rather than come to Europe.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a Sunni organization founded in 1928 in Egypt and has claims to be based on political activism combined with Islamic charity work. It supporters can be found throughout Muslim countries.

It has been controversial and in 2003 Russia banned it as a terrorist organization. As of 2015 it is considered a terrorist organization by the governments of Bahrain, Egypt, Russia, Syria, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

Zeman’s comments extended beyond the refugee crisis and also touched on the Czech Republic and its drawing of EU funds. He was critical of the country failing to draw Kč 35 billion, and said that if somebody stole that amount they would end up in court.

Zeman is the first directly elected Czech president, having been elected by popular vote in 2013. Previously, he was prime minister from 1998 to 2002.
