freelogoOur objective is to provide English speaking readers interested in Hungary with a well balanced view of political activities in Hungary by featuring contents from various printed and online sources together with our own commentaries. We are convinced that Hungary is built on all sorts of different ideas, thoughts and opinions and, despite of the new Media Law, our aim is to provide an alternative and reliable source of information – contrary to the one-sided press of the government – for those who want to hear the voice of a free Hungary.

Viktor Orbán's Declarations and Reality

The biweekly newspaper Új Élet of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Hungary (Mazsihisz) published an article about what is tolerated in Hungary in the issue dated March 1, 2014, under the title of "Zero Tolerance,". For example, in February of 2014, neo-Nazis marched in the town of Székesfehérvár, which is less than 40 kilometers from Felcsút, where Prime Minister Viktor Orbán resides. During their raucous meeting, the participants shouted that the real Holocaust was not the annihilation of the Jews, but rather the bombing of Dresden.

n the Orbán government-affiliated ECHO TV statements by the journalist Ferenc Szaniszló were broadcast in early March: "Hungary must prepare, whether it wants to or not, to again incorporate the Carpathian-Ukraine region. ...If the Russians provide us with a fait accompli and offer to return what ours was for many centuries, how will we respond? Will we leave the decision up to our masters in Brussels and Washington?...In Hungary only treasonable national Socialists, fascistic liberals, left-wing extremists and anti-Semitic Zionists favor the European Union ....Russians and Hungarians in the Ukraine are the suffering subjects of national Socialist and fascist-liberal oppression".

A civilized society would not permit such an individual in the proximity of a microphone.

On February 19, 2014 Viktor Orbán wrote to Mazsihisz: "You are well aware that my past and my present governments have declared zero-tolerance to anti-Semitism ..."

Who can believe that?
