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.

Hungary PM asks EU to pay half of border protection costs

BUDAPEST, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban asked the European Union to pay half of the costs of the country’s anti-immigrant border protection, Minister of Prime Minister’s Office Janos Lazar said here on Thursday.

The prime minister made the request to the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker in a letter, asking the Brussels-based organization to cover half of the costs of the Hungarian anti-immigrant border protection, which is estimated at some 800 million euros ((952 million U.S. dollars), Lazar said at a press conference.

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.

European Union Tells Hungary and Poland To Accept Mass Migration Or Leave

The appropriate response to the EU demands.

France and Germany, along with a host of up to 21 other countries, are set to demand Hungary and Poland either accept migrants under the quota system or leave the European Union (EU).

The two nations have ignored Brussels’ insistence that they take migrants presently residing in great numbers in Italy and Greece. Public opinion in Hungary and Poland is also strongly against being forced to accept thousands of migrants from non-European cultures.
