He’s got a point.
Czech Republic President Milos Zeman had a few choice words over the weekend about the Syrian refugee crisis, and they are sure to have President Barack Obama fuming.
Zeman said the current influx of refugees into Europe is an “organized invasion,” and the young men choosing to leave the war-torn area should instead remain behind and “take up arms” against the Islamic State group.
“I am profoundly convinced that we are facing an organized invasion and not a spontaneous movement of refugees,” Zeman said, according to Breitbart.
While it is understandable to have compassion for the elderly, those who are sick and children seeking asylum, it is not possible to have the same understanding for young men who should be defending their homeland against jihadists, Zeman said.
“A large majority of the illegal migrants are young men in good health, and single. I wonder why these men are not taking up arms to go fight for the freedom of their countries against the Islamic State,” Zeman said in a message to the Czech Republic Saturday.
Zeman also said that by choosing to leave, the young men are strengthening the Islamic State.
This isn’t the first time Zeman has spoken out about the waves of refugees crossing Europeans borders. Over the summer, he suggested using the army to help control the situation and secure Czech borders.
He has also expressed fears about refugees practicing Shariah law and putting it before the laws of his country, a legitimate concern for every nation facing heaving migration.
Zeman’s comments make sense as it has been reported that among the thousands of refugees crossing borders every day, roughly half of them are male.
Obama wants us to believe that the population of refugees consists of helpless widows and orphans but the reality is otherwise.
