Jan Hamáček, Social Democrat speaker of the lower house of the Czech parliament has stated that unlike the former government, "we will not uncritically approve every policy of the centre-right government of Benyamin Netanyahu." The statement was made to Isaac Herzog, Israeli Labour opposition leader, during his visit to Prague. The comments come as the new president of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, has accepted an invitation by his Czech counterpart Miloš Zeman to visit the country. The timing of the invite by Zeman has been criticized by some observers, who accuse the president of demonstrating an excessively simplistic unflinching support of Israel in light of the recent conflict in the Gaza Strip.
