Hungarian PM Tells German Conservatives: ‘2018 Will Be the Year for Restoring the People’s Will in Europe’

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán has told a conference of German conservatives in Bavaria that 2018 will the year “the people’s will” is restored in Europe, as eurosceptic, anti-mass migration leaders take the fight to the globalist establishment.

The Fidesz leader was a guest of Bavaria’s Christian Social Union (CSU), which sits with Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) at the federal level in Germany but is markedly more conservative than its nominally ‘centre-right’ sister party.

Hungarian PM Orban says George Soros will interfere in election, vows to stop him

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has vowed to use all the means at his disposal to counter the influence of George Soros, warning that the American billionaire is planning to interfere in next year’s elections in the country.

In an interview with Kossuth radio on Friday, Orban again accused Soros of attempting to undermine Hungarian institutions and society through his network of NGOs and pro-immigration stance, and revealed that the Hungarian intelligence services had compiled a report on Soros’ activities.

“We want a different future, and… it was my duty to enlist all possible tools of the state, including intelligence, the secret services, legal and public debate,” Orban told listeners. “Therefore, we ordered an intelligence report on the composition, workings and Hungarian and European influence of this Soros machinery… Hungary’s very existence is at stake.”

Viktor Orban goes Star Wars on EU ‘migrant invasion’

He went on to say that the ultimate goal of the massive inflow of migrants into Europe consisted of depriving it of its Christian and national identity. The prime minister then stressed that Europe should remain “safe, fair, civic, Christian and free” and should regain the splendor he said it had before embracing multiculturalism.

Christian Hungary on Collision Course with European Union’s Islamic ‘Blackmail’

BUDAPEST – In a time when most of Europe is in the grips of atheism, there is a nation where Christianity seems to not only be holding its own but some say is thriving.

Imagine a government that is unabashedly Christian, that thinks Christian values are worth defending; that wants to protect and even nourish the family.

Welcome to Hungary.

Israel Overrules its Ambassador to Hungary on Anti-Soros Ads

An anti-Soros campaign reading “99 percent reject illegal migration” and “Let’s not allow Soros to have the last laugh,” July 5, 2017 in Budapest, Hungary. A call by the Israeli ambassador to Hungary for an end to the billboard campaign against George Soros wasn’t meant to “delegitimize” criticism of the Hungarian-American billionaire, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said Sunday, July 10, 2017.

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY — A call by the Israeli ambassador to Hungary for an end to the billboard campaign against George Soros wasn’t meant to “delegitimize” criticism of the Hungarian-American billionaire, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said Sunday.

The ministry’s statement was in response to a Facebook post by Ambassador Yossi Amrani, who said the Hungarian government’s billboards not only evoke “sad memories, but also sow hatred and fear.”

The ministry said the “sole purpose” of the ambassador’s statement was to express Israel’s rejections of anti-Semitism and support “Jewish communities everywhere in confronting this hatred.”

“In no way was the statement meant to delegitimize criticism of George Soros, who continuously undermines Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself,” the ministry said.

Poland, Hungary terror-free by rejecting refugees

The leaders of Poland and Hungary have not succumbed to pressures to admit an influx of refugees inside their borders – a policy that has yielded no terrorism problems, unlike many of their European neighbors who have been plagued by jihad at the hand of Islamic migrants.

Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo made her opposition to accepting migrants loud and clear in a statement she delivered between England’s Manchester bombing killing 22 and last weekend’s London Bridge attack killing seven.

Hungary Unveils New Electrified Border Wall, Watch Towers, Guards With Machine Guns

Though detractors of President Donald Trump’s border wall concept have been critical of the idea that a wall would actually stop illegal immigration through America’s porous southern border, the Hungarian wall has reportedly reduced illegal crossings into the country by a whopping 97%, with a significant change seen within the first 24 hours after it was installed.

I don’t recognise Viktor Orbán as a ‘tyrant’

The western media’s portrait of the Hungarian leader as an enemy of democracy and an antisemite isn’t just puzzling, it’s disgusting

The possible closure of the Central European University in Budapest has unleashed waves of denunciations directed at the Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orbán, in western media. Orbán has been accused of leading an “assault on freedom” in the New York Times, while one Guardian writer has summoned up the spectre of Munich 1938.

Let’s go over a few facts many west of Vienna seem unable to understand. Hungary is a democracy. It has a wide range of political parties (a lot more than, say, the US, which is only one party away from being a one-party state). It has free and fair elections. It has a parliament that passes legislation. The quality of legislation can vary greatly, as in any democracy, but like most legal matters that is a matter of keen debate. If citizens are unhappy about the legislation, they hold demonstrations, as they have been doing.

Odd to see this in the Guardian.
