As noted here several times in the past, Czech President Miloš Zeman is often outspoken in his politically incorrect opinions about immigration and Islam.
Below is an interview with President Zeman from
Blesk, a well-known Czech tabloid, that was published after the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Many thanks to Gemini for the translation:
Zeman on Muslims: If they do not conform, deport them!
Muslims who won’t conform to the customs of their new homeland should be deported, President Zeman stated in the interview conducted for Blesk.
“Everyone should be living in his homeland. It is something different to travel and discover other cultures than to live in one’s homeland and work for its prosperity. I think that those people should live and practice their religion in their homelands and shouldn’t try disturbing common life in countries that have a different culture,” thinks Zeman.
He also added that even if radicals are born in western Europe, they still belong more to Muslim lands like Algeria, Mali etc. “There is some genetic connection,” he elaborated. “A Czech remains Czech even if he lives in France. Although, in the case of Czechs, the different culture is not a problem. A Czech, such as Milan Kundera, for example, is able to adapt well in France. People from those lands lack aforementioned ability. This is not a critique as such, it is an observation,” he added.
According to Zeman, it all depends just on the willingness to adapt. “I would tell them: Unless you can accept rules laid down by your host country — while killing journalists certainly is not accepting them — go back home, to your homeland,” he concluded.
