Robert Fico, the Slovak prime minister

Leftist Slovak prime minister seeking 3rd term with a pledge to bar Muslims from settling in the country

Slovaks began voting in a general election Saturday that polls show will hand firebrand leftist Premier Robert Fico a third term in power on the back of staunch anti-refugee rhetoric.

Arguing that jihadists masquerading as refugees could infiltrate the European Union, the populist leader has insisted on “monitoring every Muslim” in predominantly Catholic Slovakia after November’s attacks in Paris.

His anti-refugee policies have echoed EU hawks like Czech President Milos Zeman, Hungarian Premier Viktor Orban and Poland’s Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

“We’ll never bring even a single Muslim to Slovakia, we won’t create any Muslim communities here because they pose a serious security risk,” Fico told thousands at a rally in Bratislava for his Smer-Social Democracy (Smer-SD) party, days ahead of the vote.

    Back in the day, when I was wont to visit Slovakia, noticed the occasional Muslim famliy – invariably because of the attire of the Muslima. Not many of them, even then. Good on the president, defending his country’s culture against the invaders.

    • I have been there years ago, when they still were part of Czechoslovakia, but don’t remember seeing Muslims. Their major problem were gypsies, responsible for pickpocketing and other similar crimes. After the fall of communism the problem became even worse. Adding Muslims to the mix may have explosive consequences.

  • “We’ll never bring even a single Muslim to —, we won’t create any Muslim communities here because they pose a serious security risk.” Every European leader should be making this pledge, which is perfectly reasonable and wise.

      It’s a little late for that, most European major cities have a majority muslim population in the 0 to 10 year old age.
