Slovakian Prime Minister Calls Muslims Unwelcome in His Country

One hopes that Saudi Arabia steps up to bat for these huddled masses:

The Italian navy says it has recovered seven bodies from an overturned migrant ship off the coast of Libya. A further 500 migrants who were on board were rescued safely.

A statement from the Italian navy Wednesday says the Bettica patrol ship was responding to a migrant ship in distress when the vessel flipped, sending migrants into the sea. …

In Slovakia, meanwhile, the prime minister said Wednesday his country is not a suitable place for Muslims to live because they could change centuries-long traditions.

In an interview with the local press agency TASR, Robert Fico said he doesn’t want to have “tens of thousands of Muslims” in Slovakia.

His country is also a vocal opponent of a compulsory EU plan to redistribute refugees in member states and is suing the EU over it.

Fico charges the Muslims would change Slovakia’s traditions, which have “been present here for centuries.”

    If things don’t work out for this guy in Slovakia I would be willing to support him for Emperor of Canerduh.

    But I just saw Dion on tv in Egypt say that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. How can the Liberals be wrong. Everyone in Canada loves the Liberals.

    • That Dion is some kind of genius let me tell you.

        Climate change is man-made, and causes terrorism. (How do you say that with a straight face ?)

      You just saved yourself from two years in jail.

    • … says Dion.

      I’m waiting for that twit to accidentally kill himself while combing his hair.

      He is so empty-headed.

      Dion is an evil treasonous piece of crap

        And one whose face I would never tire of punching.

    No civilized country is a suitable place for Muslims to live.

    • WalterBannon

      No planet is a suitable place for Muslims to live.

    We have loved every minute we ever spent in Slovakia and Slovenia. It’s wonderful to have so many friends and business associates in neighbouring Hungary, which we visit frequently. Side trips to Slovakia have always been a high point of such vacations.

    Up the Slovaks!!

    Eastern Europe suffered horrific depredation at the hands of the Ottoman Empire well into the 1600’s. I suspect Mr. Fico is as much concerned about centuries old Islamic practices and traditions as he is about those of Slovakia. 350 years seem like a long time to North Americans, but Europeans have much longer cultural memories, and more respect for their own cultures as well [well, maybe Eastern Europe, anyway…]

    • Justin St.Denis

      You are correct in specifying Eastern Europe.
