Czech President Milos Zeman on Saturday accused EU states of being "cowards" in their response to his U.S. President Donald Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
"The European Union, cowards, are doing all they can so a pro-Palestinian terrorist movement can have supremacy over a pro-Israeli movement," said Zeman, according to AFP.
The 73-year-old Zeman, targeting a second term from January and who had Friday said he was happy at Trump's controversial move, made Saturday's comment before delegates attending the congress of the far right Freedom and Direct Democracy party, which opposes immigration and the EU.
Zeman added that he had himself spoke in favor of Prague moving the Czech embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv on a visit four years ago.

Impossible to see that with rose-colored glasses.
I think it’s fascinating the same countries in WW-II screwed by Germany and the CCCP have come forward to ally with Israel. Sudetenland-Czechoslovakia and now HAMAS and all Islam uses Sudetenland strategy to push Israel back in to the sea which will neverhappen.
Ironic, because after WW II, when Czechoslovakia got back its sovereignty and before it became a Soviet satellite, they kicked out all the Sudeten Germans, sent them back to Germany on the rails.
Those that they didn't murder.
