Church representatives warn against radicalism

Church representatives have called on the Czech public not to succumb to radicalism, despite feeling anger towards the Islamist terrorists. The head of the Czech Catholic Church Dominik Duka, along with the leader of the Ecumenical Council of Churches Daniel Fejfar, and the head of the Jewish Community Petr Papoušek have expressed their solidarity with the families of the victims of this week's attacks in Paris. They say it is necessary to insist on the basic rules of open society, especially on the liberty of speech, on mutual respect of religions and cultures and on finding ways of mutual coexistence.
