Czech President: EU ‘Cowards’ Supporting ‘Pro-Palestinian Terrorist Movement’ Over Israel in Jerusalem

(AFP) — Czech President Milos Zeman on Saturday accused EU states of being “cowards” in their response to his US counterpart Donald Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“The European Union, cowards, are doing all they can so a pro-Palestinian terrorist movement can have supremacy over a pro-Israeli movement,” said Zeman, presenting himself as a defender of Israel.

The 73-year-old Zeman, targeting a second term from January and who had Friday said he was happy at Trump’s controversial move, made Saturday’s comment before delegates attending the congress of the far right Freedom and Direct Democracy party, which opposes immigration and the EU.

Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday in a move that outraged Palestinian leaders, but which was hailed as historic by Israel.

Zeman said he had himself spoken in favour of Prague moving the Czech embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv on a visit four years ago — a proposal which met with a reserved political response in his homeland.

Following Trump’s announcement the Czech foreign ministry said it saw Jerusalem as the future capital both of Israel and a future Palestinian state and that Prague could only consider moving its embassy after consulting regional partners.

The EU’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini warned on Thursday that Trump’s move had a “very worrying potential impact” and could take the region “backwards to even darker times than the ones we’re already living in”.

Mogherini added that “the aspirations of both parties must be fulfilled and a way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states.”

  1. There are three countries who are standing firm in the defense of European as well as Judeo-Christian Civilization: The Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary. Seems like the people in these countries can remember the Battle of Vienna in 1683 and what an Ottoman horde (e.g., Muslims) can do when they occupy land and wage a war for over 150 years.
    Some people are going to be sorry they told all those “Stupid Pollack Jokes” during the 70’s.

  2. Those that were under the yoke of marxists still have it fresh in their memory. They see the creeping totalitarianism descending in western europe and want nothing to do with it. Good for them.

  3. another reason to drink Sobieski Vodka. Prince Sobieski of Poland was the Christian who led his “Winged Hussars” in the Defense of Vienna, against the hordes of Filthy Mohammedan Savages.
