Czech Prez: ‘Spread of Radical Islam in EU Candidate State Bosnia Funded by Saudi Arabia’

by VICTORIA FRIEDMAN16 Oct 2017

President of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman said there is a risk of Saudi Arabia-funded radical Islam spreading to European Union candidate state Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Speaking at a Visegrád Group conference on integrating Baltic nations into the EU, President Zeman said: “All four presidents have clearly agreed that, in particular, there is a risk of further spreading of radical Islam in Bosnia. I am glad that my colleagues have pointed out that this spread is largely funded by Saudi Arabian sources.”
Hungarian President János Áder, Slovak President Andrej Kiska, and Polish President Andrzej Duda agreed with Zeman that these funds do not serve to enrich Bosnia-Herzegovina or neighbouring countries, but rather to invest in mosques and minarets, which may trigger an outbreak of ‘religious intolerance’.
...
The four Central European presidents met at the Szekszard conference in Hungary, where they agreed to support EU expansionism.
However, they expressed their reservations about the Muslim-majority Bosnia-Herzegovina and disputed former Serbian territory Kosovo, who are both considered “potential candidates” by the EU, entering the European bloc, with Slovakia being amongst the member-states to have denied recognition of Kosovo as a country in 2008.
In 2016, Breitbart London reported that Bosnia, which has the highest per-capita ratio of foreign Islamic State fighters of any European country, has become a “safe-house for radicals” and enjoys a “stable terrorist infrastructure”.
...
However, the EU is resolute on integrating the unstable region after instructing Balkan leaders to ‘embrace‘ their EU future – despite a recent political crisis in Macedonia, growing hostility between Serbia and breakaway Kosovo, an opposition boycott of Parliament in Albania, a failed coup attempt in Montenegro, and growing tensions between Bosnia’s ethnic groups.
