Czechs Mourn the Tragic Loss of Ambassador Ivo Zdarek in Islamabad

Prague - The Czech ambassador to Pakistan lost his life yesterday in the terrorist attack on the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad. Ivo Zdarek (November 6, 1960 - September 20, 2008) studied in the United States at Stanford University and was also educated at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations and in Prague at Charles University. He previously served as the Czech ambassador to Vietnam. It is unfortunate that the terrorists who killed him along with many others in this senseless bombing will receive more news coverage than a man like Ivo Zdarek who devoted his life to diplomacy and international goodwill. It is past time for the Islamic world to reign in its fundamentalist terrorists, just as the Christian world must transcend its own fundamentalism. Both are dangerous if not outright evil elements in the world and can only lead to tragedies such as the one in Islamabad yesterday. Nothing good will ever come of such extremism or the fundamentalists who promote it. Another sad day for the Czech Republic and for the world.
