A mayor of a city in Hungary has accused Israel of being behind the terror attacks in Paris last month, but was quick to offer an apology after a recording of his comments was leaked to local media.

Speaking during a November 16 council meeting over the expansion of a nearby refugee camp, Szentgotthárd Mayor Gábor Huszár said: “Everyone should just take my word for it. What happened in Paris is clear evidence that certain business circles, dare I say business circles which are likely backed by the Jewish state, are trying to pit Christian Europe against the Muslims.”

According to media in the country, Huszár was trying to placate concerns over the expansion of the refugee camp by arguing that the Muslim refugees were not to blame for the November 13 Paris terror attacks that claimed the lives of 130 people.
