Okamura backtracks on anti-Islam provocation
Tomio Okamura, MP and head of the Czech opposition Dawn of Direct Democracy who recently called on Czechs to bother local Muslims by walking pigs close to mosques, today said he would not put out such a call on Facebook because it downplays the real danger of radical Islamism.
He reacted to the Dawn leadership's condemnation of Okamura's views.
"Such an article including pigs and kebabs unnecessarily belittles the issue and plays down the real weight of the danger. That is why I would definitely formulate it differently," Okamura said.
