Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban unabashedly lashed out at the EU “elite” during a speech, referencing them as “serial failures” and specifically pointing out that Angela Merkel is failing to protect German citizens from jihadist terror. Orban called for a radical overhaul of the EU as it continues to lose its sovereignty.
Unsurprising, the article below (along with others) slammed Orban for his speech as an “astonishingly savage tirade”, with further adjectives including “menacing”, “reproachful” and “stinging”.
Orban stated of the EU:
It is unable to protect its own citizens, it is unable to protect its external borders.
It is unable to keep the community together, as Britain, the United Kingdom, has just left.
What more is needed for one to openly declare that Europe’s political leadership has failed? It is unable to achieve a single one of its goals.
And he added, as was noted on Jihad Watch yesterday, that migration “increases terrorism and crime.”
Given the barrage of news reports of jihadist attacks, what, pray tell, is savage, menacing, reproachful and stinging about Orban’s words? His words are undeniably politically incorrect, but they are truthful. What the West does not seem to fathom is that everyone needs to come together to fight jihad and political Islam, including Muslims of good will who sincerely oppose these phenomena. It is the left that has created the worst kind of us-versus-them narrative. Muslims are not being picked on when Westerners demand resistance to jihadist incursion and challenge Muslim communities in the West to step up in this fight as well.
The article below also states:
“However, he found himself in hot water today after describing migrants as “poison” at a press conference – remarks human rights campaigners denounced as “disgusting and xenophobic.”
Not all migrants are “poison”, but Orban is clearly exasperated, and he should be. What’s more “disgusting” is the intensity of the outcry against Orban’s demanding a solution to jihadist terror; a terror that is so barbaric that its followers deliberately blew up a baby that was strapped with explosives during a terrorist training session to test the explosives and recently slit an elderly priest’s throat during a mass in France. The Islamic State has just released the video of the gruesome murder.
The crime surge in Europe includes rapes, assaults, murders, thefts and arsons. The more shocking victimizations outside of Europe, such as the inhumane treatment of Yazidi sex slaves, brutal persecution of Christians, widespread bloodshed and anarchy, etc. have begun to spill into Europe, and Orban has condemned the failings of European leaders in allowing it to do so. The Islamic State is living up to its promise to infiltrate the migrant stream, and has been campaigning to expand lone wolf attacks.
These so-called “human rights campaigners” are more concerned about political correctness than about human rights.
Last year, migrants were rioting at the Hungary border, amid condemnations of the Hungarian government from leftists, when the country decided to erect a temporary fence upon the news that some 30 million refugees could be headed into Europe. Orban issued a stern warning “to belligerent Brussels bureaucrats over migration, saying that other European nations would come around to Hungary’s no-nonsense way of thinking as the reality of regular terror attacks set in”. And they will — or commit continent-wide suicide.
THE BITTER divisions ripping the European Union apart intensified today as Hungary launched an eviscerating attack on Brussels over migration and taunted Angela Merkel for failing to protect German people from Islamist terror.
In an astonishingly savage tirade the country’s leader Viktor Orban described the EU elite as serial “failures” and openly goaded struggling western European nations, describing them as “stagnated and incapable of change”.
The hardline Prime Minister called for a radical overhaul of the European project, decrying the growing loss of sovereignty to Brussels as a disaster and “one of the greatest threats in Europe today”.
And he issued a stunning rebuke to Mrs Merkel on migration, blaming recent terror attacks on the mas influx of refugees and saying Hungary no longer looked up to its near neighbour as a paragon of stability and common sense.
Mr Orban’s stunning broadside comes at a time of unparalleled acrimony amongst EU countries, who are falling out over everything from the Brexit result to how to deal with the Eurozone crisis.
At the heart of Europe’s malaise is the fast-approaching point of no return on federalism, where members will be forced to choose between the creation of a United States of Europe or a return to a loosely allied trading bloc.
And the Hungary PM was clear where his nation will stand as he railed against the “undemocratic” EU Commission which he blamed for driving a wrecking ball through the life chances of hundreds of millions of young Europeans.
In a speech laced with menace and reproach he had particularly scathing words for the founding nations of the EU, who he described as an “old Europe” which were being left behind by newer, more dynamic members.
His stinging description of western Europe as “stagnating” will hit home hard in France, Germany and Spain, where economic growth has tanked and unemployment rocketed.
In an openly divisive move he contrasted their woes with the “prosperous” east – dubbed “New Europe” – which he called “viable, full of energy, capable of renewal, and seeking answers to new challenges”.
And he issued a tough warning to belligerent Brussels bureaucrats over migration, saying that other European nations would come around to Hungary’s no-nonsense way of thinking as the reality of regular terror attacks set in.
He said: “We must make it clear that our problem is not in Mecca, but in Brussels. The obstacle for us is not Islam, but the bureaucrats in Brussels.
“We would be able to deal with Islam if we were allowed to deal with it in the way we think we should.”
In a withering putdown he also dismissed the EU elite’s delusions of grandeur, insisting that post-Brexit the bloc had ceased to be a “global player” and was now struggling to be of significance even in its own region.
Pointing to Brussels’ totally ineffectual role in the Ukraine peace process – which has been led by Russia and the US – he said that Britain’s decision to leave had “ended” the bloc’s attempts to be an international influencer.
And in a scathing assessment he said: “It is unable to protect its own citizens, it is unable to protect its external borders.
“It is unable to keep the community together, as Britain, the United Kingdom, has just left.
“What more is needed for one to openly declare that Europe’s political leadership has failed? It is unable to achieve a single one of its goals.”
Migration, he argued, “increases terrorism and crime” and “destroys national culture” in a thinly-veiled swipe at Mrs Merkel’s decision to roll out the red carpet to millions of people from the Middle East.
Citing the recent terror attack in Munich, Mr Orban said Hungary had “always looked upon Germany as the western guarantor of our security” but added that “this quite clearly no longer exists” following a spate of Islamist attacks in the country…..
