Final Word from Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Karel Schwarzenberg declared in early 2011 as foreign minister that it was time to conduct a reasonable dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood. It's not a group of young revolutionaries, he said, but rather a bunch of grandpas his age and older. Keeping with his indulgent attitude toward the group, he said that it was nonsense for Miloš Zeman to claim yesterday that the migration wave is being organized by the Muslim Brotherhood. It's not hard to understand why far more Czechs will side with Zeman than Schwarzenberg on this. Zeman provides concrete sources for his information (Moroccan and UAE officials), whereas Schwarzenberg says that Zeman should go talk to some refugees to learn why they are fleeing from their homes. Zeman speaks in terms of global interests and causality; Schwarzenberg assumes that simple people always understand what is behind the circumstances that drive them to do what they do.
