'Islam is INCOMPATIBLE with Western life' Czech leader warns of more Cologne-style attacks

Czech Republic president Milos Zeman said that it is “impossible” to integrate Muslims from the Middle East into European societies because their core values are too dissimilar to those of Western populations.

In an outspoken interview the veteran left-winger blamed the New Year’s Eve rapes in Cologne on “Muslim culture” and said people who want to live according to Islamic law should not move to Europe to settle.

His controversial remarks come amid growing fury in neighbouring Germany over a string of refugee sex attacks, with a poll today revealing nearly half of Germans now openly fear newly arrived migrants.
