    Mr. Okamura, in the Czech parliamentary elections your SPD party gained 10.6 percent of the votes and became the third-strongest political force in the Czech parliament. European mainstream media are shocked about your success. What will be your first initiatives as a parliamentarian?

    I do not know why they are shocked — it is strange that traditional parties have crossed the five-percent limit despite the frauds and crimes that they have been committing so continuously for 27 years. Now it is time for the negotiation of the composition of Parliament’s leadership, and we all support others to qualify by supporting the National Referendum Act, which after 27 years finally gave citizens the right to vote – as the whole country wished for after November 17, 1989.

    The electorate in the Czech Republic were voting “right wing”, according to European media. How come? What are the main problems in the Czech Republic?

    I do not understand the question – what right wing? There have been mainstream parties that have destroyed and robbed this country and against them there are movements or parties that do not artificially divide into the right and left of the spectrum, but offer solutions to individual, concrete problems. And besides our SPD, the other two winners of the election, ANO and the Pirates, basically share elements of our SPD programme — a certain introduction of elements of democracy into our political system which, like most of Europe, is a party oligarchy. And the main problem of the Czech Republic, as elsewhere, is that there is no democracy, but only a make-believe democracy — because in a democracy, the main control and the last word lies with the citizen, not a politician.

    Why is the majority of the Czech population strongly against taking in migrants?

    Common sense explains it — we have almost no migrants from Muslim countries nor from Africa. We are the sixth most secure country in the world. But we see daily, how the migrations of the past 50 years have made Western Europe worse. It has brought criminality, hatred, parasitism to the social system and, worst of all, it turns out that instead of integration, Muslim migrants are being radicalized.

    According to the Jacobson and Decard International Survey of 2015, 35 percent of Muslims in the United Kingdom, France and Germany considered the use of violence justifiable to protect their religious beliefs. And for Muslims with a high level of religious fundamentalism it was up to 72 percent.

    No one can distinguish a terrorist from a non-terrorist. This is not possible, because every Muslim can become a radical and a terrorist. Would you give your kids a basket of apples that would have only one poisoned apple, but you do not know which one it is? Mrs. Merkel does. We in the SPD refuse it. Additionally, accepting migrants does not solve anything, on the contrary — it only increases the hope of other poor people in Africa and Asia, that we will take care of them. But it is impossible, the quota will not save a billion of the poor. It is necessary to eliminate war and misery in the countries from which people flee – not bring misery and war to us.

    The German media were writing that you are “anti-German” because of your criticism of the Berlin government. Are you really anti-German or anti-Merkel?

    I am struggling to connect — if I were anti-German, I would have to be a fan of Frau Merkel. On the contrary, I do not want the Germans to have Sharia law in their country, nor want the immigrants to burn and plunder whole city neighborhoods, as they do in other countries.

    How do you see Angela Merkel’s politics for Europe?

    It is the way to hell because it does not offer a good solution. If the forest burns, I do not extinguish it by taking home the burning trees. And, unfortunately, this is not just a German problem — a million migrants will demand legal family arrivals of several million of their family members as part of family reunification, and they will again be required by law to allow further legal arrivals of their other relatives.

    Everyone will be entitled to social assistance and from the statistics of Berlin senator Thilo Sarrazin, the whole world knows that Muslim communities lead to increasing crime and have the highest dependence on social benefits, combined with high birth rates. You, the Germans, unfortunately have given us the very reason why we should refuse quotas and the Muslim migrants. We learn from your mistakes and we wish you to “wake up” before your benevolence destroys you.
