Prague, Jan 5 (CTK) – President Milos Zeman´s statement that the Muslim Brotherhood organised the mass migration in order to gain control over Europe is absurd, Ondrej Beranek, head of the Oriental Institute of the Academy of Sciences, told CTK yesterday.
Tomas Pojar, former Czech ambassador in Israel, said Zeman´s view seems to be a conspiracy theory rather than reality.
However, both Beranek and Pojar admitted that the migration may be controlled.
“(The Muslim Brotherhood) cannot declare war on Europe, it does not have enough forces for it, but it can prepare a growing migrant wave and gradually gain control of Europe,” Zeman told public Czech Radio (CRo) on Monday.
“It is hard to comment on an absurd statement. It may be more interesting to ask why the president helps spread this rumour,” Beranek said.
Beranek said he believes Zeman wants people to become afraid because only a few people know what the Muslim Brotherhood is doing.
Pojar said there seemed to be forces that controlled and supported the mass migration, but “there is no single organiser.”
Beranek said the refugee wave to Europe may be caused by a deliberate policy of some parties.
But it was far more probable that it was organised on the state level than by “a movement that was forced underground and whose real power is almost null at the moment,” he said, referring to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Pojar said there were many other Islamist movements that promoted the introduction of the Sharia law in the Middle East or Europe.
Zeman told CRo that the Moroccan foreign minister told him that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to gain control of not only the whole Muslim world, but of the whole world as such. He said the Crown Prince of the United Arab Emirates told him that the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella organisation of all Islamic terrorist groups.
“Based on these two information sources, Muslims and leading Arab politicians in both cases, I believe that the invasion is organised by the Muslim Brotherhood using, naturally, the financial means of a number of states,” Zeman said.
In reaction to the above statements, Beranek said one must keep in mind that the Muslim Brotherhood is considered an enemy of the state in many countries.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a fundamentalist Islamist organisation founded in 1928 in Egypt, from where it has spread to the whole Arab world. Its aim is the creation of a state implementing Islamic laws. In Egypt, this Sunnite organisation has been outlawed since September 2013. Russia, Saudi Arabia, Syria and the United Arab Emirates and other countries consider it a terrorist organisation.
