Hungary: Mass Migration And Terrorism Go Hand In Hand


Mass migration is responsible for terror attacks in Europe including the slaughter in Nice that killed 84, say Senior Hungarian politicians including Viktor Orbán’s Cabinet Office chief.

Talking on Hungarian radio yesterday Cabinet Office chief Antal Rogán pointed to recent terror attacks in Europe and said “illegal immigration and terrorism go hand in hand”, and that it was “quite clear” that the “terrorist perpetrators” of recent attacks including those in Paris were “illegal immigrants”, reports the ORIGO news service.

Reinforcing the Hungarian government’s line towards the continental power bloc, Mr. Rogán expressed his opinion that it was time for the European Union (EU) to enact a radical change on refugee policy and to stop mass migration. He said the present system incentivises immigration, exacerbating the crisis — and Western European states had failed to integrate immigrants, reports Daily News Hungary.

Mr. Rogán said migration to Europe should now be halted, and that the people of Europe shared this view — however “Brussels does not want to hear the voice of the people”. In contrast to the EU, he said Hungary was ready to listen to the views of the people and so the nation is to hold a referendum on migrant policies in October — a vote that is expected to overwhelmingly back closing borders.

The Cabinet Office minister’s comments came just hours after remarks by the leader of the ruling Fidesz’s parliamentary leader Lajos Kósa, who slammed European leaders after the Nice attacks. Remarking on Europe’s propensity to light candles and create Twitter hashtags after terror attacks, the parliamentarian said: “Expressing condolences is no longer sufficient. Europe has changed once and for all. Brussels should give up its position focusing on removing barriers to immigrants.”

Clearly exasperated at the repeated terror attacks that have so far failed to elicit any meaningful response from Western European governments, he asked: “What else must happen for the European Union leaders in Brussels to recognise that their migration policy is untenable?” Mr. Kósa said all recent terror attacks in Europe were linked to migrants and “radical Islam”, reports Hungary Today.

Hungary is one of a small group of Central and Eastern European conservative, Christian states, known as the Visegrad Four, that also includes Slovakia, Poland, and Czechia. The comparatively low-population, low-GDP nations have been in the vanguard of resistance against the prevailing migration policies of the dominant Western European nations like France and Germany, who have used the devices of the EU to threaten Hungary and others with significant fines if they don’t agree to accept forced mass migration.

Breitbart London reported the comments of Interior minister Mariusz Blaszczak of fellow Visegrad nation Poland, who like his Hungarian colleagues said that in the wake of the Nice attack that multiculturalism, political correctness and mass migration are responsible for Europe’s terrorism problem.

Mr. Blaszczak said: “Authority should uphold the right and the freedom and security of citizens”, and remarked that had Poland not enjoyed a change of government from a centre-left to a traditionalist conservative one in a landslide election last year, their country would have been flooded with migrants, too. He said: “Already we would have thousands of immigrants from the Middle East and Africa… newcomers from Africa and the Middle East simply do not integrate.”
