Hungarian Jews May Use Force to Stop Jobbik Protest

The Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (Mazsihisz) is considering sending people to physically prevent Hungary’s ultra-nationalist Jobbik party from holding a rally at a former synagogue on next Friday.

Jobbik, which holds 43 of 386 seats in the country’s parliament, is planning the rally in a building in the city of Esztergom which had once been a synagogue. The Jewish community in the city was killed during the Holocaust. The Jobbik party leader, Marton Gyongyosi, had demanded that the Hungarian government make a list of citizens with Jewish ancestry who might post a security risk to the country.

Holding the rally at the former synagogue would be an “unworthy, ugly, and cynical desecration of the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and the sentiments of the survivors,” Esztergom’s Socialist Party chairman Tamás Gál wrote in a letter to the town’s mayor.

Meanwhile, the Rabbinical Council of Europe (RCE) has announced its plans to hold a conference in March that will cooperate with the Hungarian government. “In the past few years, the voices of anti-Semitic ideology have become louder in the country. The conference is aimed at showing support to the Jewish community, and to the majority of Hungarians who experience with fear the negative developments,” RCE Director-General Rabbi Menachem Margolin said in a statement.

  1. Things keep getting worse regarding the Jews in every sector. It’s just as evil today as it was when hitler was on the scene.

  2. JoAnn Morris says:

    Pray G-d to protect the Jews in Hungry.

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    Actually, The Hungarian government should investigate these people to see if they and their family served the axis government and finally prosecute them for crimes against humanity and have them also tender the death camps – keeping them clean.

  4. Europe will once again be the Jewish people's graves if they do not leave now. Time to let Europe rot in its own prejudiced filth.

  5. Marton Gyongyosi wants to make a list? Well, he just made the sh*t list, along with Hitler and everybody else that should have been flushed a long time ago. It's 2014, and instead of flying cars and a cure to cancer, we still have people like this in politics? Are we living in the year 2014 or the year 14?

  6. Is not Hungary in the EU?, what are saying or doing the EU?, they are also together with Hungary?.
