WASHINGTON, D.C.– With 16,000 people in the room waiting in anticipation for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech, an unlikely figure surprised the crowd at the 2015 AIPAC (America-Israel Public Affairs Committee) Policy Conference. Czech Republic President Miloš Zeman warned about the rise of Islamic terrorism around the globe, describing how the Muslim Brotherhood has had a hand in creating almost every Islamic terror group worldwide.
Czech Republic President Miloš Zeman told the crowd that the world must stand with Israel and the worldwide Jewish community.
“The Czech Republic is the best friend of Israel all over Europe,” said Zeman. “Sometimes it is important to remember the history,” he added, before discussing how the Czech people have been friends to the modern state of Israel since its inception in 1948.
Zeman revealed his prognosis for the future battles against worldwide terrorism, and gave recommendations on how to defeat the threat posed by Islamic fundamentalism.
“But now we face the future, and it is more important,” the Czech President stressed. “There is [a] growing wave of so-called international terrorism, that I always say [is] Islamic terrorism.”
President Zeman recommended that the West employ a “two-step” process in order to “fight this growing wave.”
Zeman added: “The first phase… is expression of solidarity… now we all must say, ‘I am a Jew.’ Ani Yehudi. But this is not enough. Of course, your discrimination is our discrimination. Your victims are our victims. But, our society is too hedonistic, too consumption oriented. And there is cowardness and appeasement… It is not enough.”
“What I propose is [a] systematic and coordinated fight against the bases of Islamic terrorism. I was informed that cover organization is Muslim Brotherhood. The chief of Al Qaeda is [a] member of the Muslim Brotherhood. The chief of [the] Taliban is a member of Muslim Brotherhood. The same with Hamas, the same with Hezbollah, the same with Al Nusra, and so on.”
“So, what I propose is a coordinated action of international community if possible under the umbrella of [the United Nations] Security Council… Superpowers have many conflicts, but one common enemy: Islamic terrorism,” concluded Czech Republic President Miloš Zeman.
