Next week prime minister Viktor Orban travels to Israel.
Next week Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban makes his first visit to the state of Israel. This symbolic and diplomatic event, considered against a consistent record of pro-Israel support and concrete measures to confront anti-Semitism in Hungary, should bring closure to the myth, popular among the Left, global Jewish organizations, and in the world press, of Hungary’s contemporary anti-Semitism. Instead of derision and conjecture, Orban deserves praise for his zero-tolerance policy on anti-Semitism and commitment to protecting all Hungarian citizens, including Hungary’s Jews.
David P. Goldman has written a bracing defense of Viktor Orbán’s government, insisting that Hungary is one of the friendliest places in the world for Jews and that any leader in his right mind would oppose the political machinations of George Soros.
Writing in the conservative journal First Things on Friday, Goldman observed that the irresponsible accusations of anti-Semitism leveled against Prime Minister Orbán hinge upon his vigorous resistance to Mr. Soros’ attempts to work around the democratic process to push Hungary in the direction of open borders.
Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has blamed the “hypocrisy and political correctness” of EU leaders on migration for enabling terrorism in Europe.
Mr Szijjártó levelled the accusation during an exclusive interview with Breitbart’s Amanda House, after she asked him how Hungary had avoided some of the problems countries such as Germany and Italy have encountered since the onset of the migrant crisis.
Brussels fears Hungary because it refuses to bow to imperial technocracy.
According to the political establishment that runs the EU, Hungary has become a xenophobic, authoritarian society. The Hungarian government and in particular the prime minister, Viktor Orban, are continually denounced for their alleged violations of EU values. The mainstream Western media have picked up the message that it is okay to hate Hungary. They give the impression that Hungary is a totalitarian and viciously anti-Semitic society in which critics of the regime are silenced and the government dominates the media.
Hungary’s parliament has passed a law that could see anyone helping illegal immigrants claim asylum in the country imprisoned. The ‘Stop Soros’ law is named after Hungarian-born billionaire and open-borders advocate, George Soros.
The law was voted on in the Hungarian parliament on Wednesday, where Viktor Orban’s right-wing Fidesz party holds a two-thirds majority. Under the law, individuals who aid migrants, informing them about the asylum procedure or “providing financial or property benefit” will be liable for a 12-month prison sentence. NGOs working with migrants will need to seek licenses and will see the scope of their work severely restricted.
Follow the money and the ideology. That was the message of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán (shown) in a recent interview, as he stated that Europe’s population was purposely being replaced by venal ideologists — such as billionaire George Soros — who hope to profit from the continent’s “ruination.” Moreover, he warned that another “high tide” of mass Muslim migration was nigh.
The Hungarian government has outlined its ‘Stop Soros’ legislative package, which will punish NGOs and activists facilitating illegal immigration.
George Soros is considered one of the main drivers of mass migration by Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán, with the billionaire financier accused of lobbying the European Union to open its borders and funding ‘civil society’ organisations which help illegal migrants to infiltrate the bloc.
In light of the 29 terrorist attacks carried out in Europe by people with a migrant background over the past three years, discussing migration in the context of security is indispensable, the Hungarian foreign minister said in Brussels after a meeting of EU foreign ministers and trade representatives on Tuesday.
Zsolt Semjen, Hungary’s deputy prime minister, called the annual pilgrimage to Csiksomlyo (Sumuleu Ciuc) in Transylvania, Romania “a spiritual powerhouse” on Saturday.
“Great many Hungarians, irrespective of their religious affiliation, gather here year by year to reinforce themselves in their national identity and Christian mission,” he told reporters after the Pentecostal holy mass had been celebrated.
After a huge electoral victory that saw his party win a two-thirds super-majority, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán has announced tougher immigration rules and his vision of a Hungary built on “Christian democracy”.
The Hungarian leader announced his new plans in a radio broadcast on Friday, saying: “We are building a Christian democracy. An old-fashioned Christian democracy whose roots are in the European tradition, where human dignity is essential and where there is a separation of powers,” newspaper Ouest France reports.
