The Palestinian leadership and the Arab League are enraged by the opening of the de facto Czech Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem. The Palestinian Authority called the opening of the Czech diplomatic mission "a blatant attack on the Palestinian people and their rights."
Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic are in breach of the European Union law by refusing to take in migrants under the bloc's mandatory migrant quota scheme, the top EU legal adviser says. According to Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston, who advises the European Court of Justice (ECJ), the members countries of the bloc have "no legitimate security grounds to reject the quota scheme" that proposes to settle hundreds of thousands migrants arriving in Europe.
The Czech parliament passed a resolution last Tuesday condemning the Israel boycott movement as antisemitic.
The non-binding resolution calling on the government to stop funding to groups promoting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish State, was adopted with overwhelming support from the deputies in the country's Lower House, receiving 120 votes in favor and 20 against.
One key part of the so-called Steele Dossier on Donald Trump was a reference to Trump lawyer Michael Cohen attending a summer 2016 collusive meeting in Prague to seek Russian help for Trump's campaign.
It's something Cohen repeatedly has denied, including under oath. Cohen not only denies such a meeting, he denies EVER having been to Prague. While Cohen has been prosecuted for some lies under oath, he has not been charged -- so far -- with lying about Prague.
Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis told the European Union that his country will not take another economic migrant. Refusing to submit to the EU's demand to accept immigrants crossing into European outer borders, the Czech Prime Minister refused to acknowledge any responsibility for foreign migrants. "I went into politics mainly to look after Czech citizens," he said
Dubbed by the mainstream media as the "Czech Donald Trump," Babis has joined Hungary's Orban in rejecting the EU-mandated migrant resettlement plan. As part of a massive "migrant resettlement scheme," Brussels wants to relocate hundreds of thousands immigrants crossing into European outer borders. "We have lost four years foolishly debating quotas. In short, the message being sent is that Europe is open and that we have to care for everyone who comes illegally and will disperse them amongst us," the Czech Prime Minister said last month.
It is being reported by Barak Ravid of Israel's Channel 10 news that Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania blocked a joint European Union statement criticizing the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
