The local government of Teplice, a spa town in the Czech Republic, is again handing out flyers to guests from Arab countries who appear not to understand the behaviour expected of them by local people, Radio Praha reported.

The local government of Teplice, a spa town in the Czech Republic, is taking steps to ensure that cultural differences between residents and their Middle Eastern guests are not a source of friction this summer, Czech news website Radio Praha reported.

The area’s warm springs and health spas have proved a hit with Arabs, but their behaviour has pleased local people less. As a result, for a second year, the authorities are distributing leaflets in Arabic which explain local customs and rules.

“We are all used to people bathing in the pool in swimming costumes and swimming trunks, which cover the body but are made from an appropriate material adapted for this purpose. We have had Arab women swimming in their ordinary clothes. We want to avoid this kind of situation,” Teplice deputy mayor Hynek Hanza explained.

As well as causing a stir at the swimming pool, local residents also complain that Arab guests leave trash in the town’s parks, and are noisy at night.

“The leaflets show where the town’s children’s play areas, squares and parks are located so that Arab guests don’t just congregate in one place, which can cause problems and clashes with the locals,” Hanza said.

The flyers, which have been distributed with the help of tourist agencies, also feature helpful diagrams to get key messages across, such as the need to observe the speed limit.

Last year some Middle Eastern emigrants who have been living in the Czech Republic for a long time helped to bridge the cultural gap, by putting up signs in Arabic, and picking up litter.

Abbas Ikhaf, a Syrian emigrant who has lived in the Czech Republic for a long time, acted as an assistant to the authorities by explaining local customs to Arab guests, who seemed better able to take the advice on board from a fellow Arab speaker.

Ikhaf, who is taking on the responsibility again this year, said that some “multicultural days” which also take place in Teplice are a good chance to build bridges.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
