Czech President Milos Zeman, known for his anti-migrant comments, on Saturday called the current wave of refugees to Europe "an organized invasion", and that young men from Syria and Iraq should instead "take up arms" against ISIS."I am profoundly convinced that we are facing an organized invasion and not a spontaneous movement of refugees," said Zeman in his Christmas message to the Czech Republic released Saturday.He went on to say that compassion was "possible" for refugees who are old or sick and for children, but not for young men who in his view should be back home fighting against jihadis.A recent survey showed that nearly 70 percent of Czechs oppose the arrival of migrants and refugees in their country.
