CR: Jewish groups protest promotion of intolerance

Via the Prague Daily Monitor:

The Jewish Federations' Community, the Prague Jewish Community and the Jewish Museum yesterday protested against what they called fomenting of intolerance in the Czech Republic in reaction to a speech Czech Muslim Lukas Vetrovec has given in the mosque in Brno.

An audio with the speech has appeared on the Internet.

Jewish organisations' leaders say Vetrovec's statements are militant and pose a threat, mainly to Jews.


Lukas Lhotan, a Czech moderate Muslim who has posted Vetrovec's speech on the Internet, said he considers the Jewish organisations' reaction an appeal for the resignation of the local Muslim leaders who are responsible for the toleration of Islamist extremism in the Czech Muslim organisations.
