Czech ambassador to Riyad Jiří Slavík was summoned to the Saudi Foreign Ministry on Sunday to hear a complaint about President Miloš Zeman's anti-Muslim statements, daily Lidové noviny (LN) writes today.
Zeman, commenting on a recent attack in the Jewish Museum in Brussels, said Islamic ideology was behind similarly motivated violent attacks.
"One of the articles of the Hamas movements says: 'Kill every Jew you see.' Do we really want to pretend that this is just an extreme?" LN quotes Zeman as saying.
