    In connection with the attacks in France, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that Hungarians knew Muslims because they had lived with them for 150 years.

    He said that if a country allowed them entry, it must learn to live with them and their religion. This is why, despite pressure from Brussels, Hungary no longer wants to allow the entry of Muslims or migrants.

    “If we don’t want to see this in Hungary, we must not let them in”, declared the Prime Minister, adding that in addition to the few already present, “we do not want to let in new ones, and especially we do not want to allow the arrival of migrants.”

    He said his country should not allow Brussels to force rules on Hungary “which we don’t want and would inevitably will lead to our funeral”.

    “The future of Africans is in Africa, and the future of Hungarians is in Hungary. We help them do whatever we can to help them live better in their country, but we do not support them to come to Hungary,” he said.

    Orban said that Western Europe must accept the protection of borders. Previously life had been calm and safe and now Europeans have to fear for their loved ones.

    He added that European notions of freedom of expression may be debatable, but there was certainly no reason for someone to kill people in a church, even if there had been a legitimate wrong. Orban may have been alluding to the fact that while Holocaust denial is punishable by law in many European countries, attacking Christians and Muslims is not.

    “It is a despicable sin to take the life of another just because he does not agree with you,” the Hungarian leader said. “We need a spiritual foundation from which sovereignty sprouts, which in Hungary is the language and culture.”

    On behalf of the Hungarian people, Orban offered his condolences to the French nation after the Thursday Muslim terrorist attack, according to the Hungarian news agency MTI.

    “Today’s and recent weeks’ attacks have clearly shown that our common European culture, lifestyle and values have become the targets of extremist terrorism,” the Hungarian prime minister pointed out.

    Orban reassured the French head of state of Hungary’s support during these difficult hours. “We are ready to unite forces to protect traditional European values and the traditional European form of life,” the prime minister wrote in his condolence message.

    Orban has meanwhile demanded that Vera Jourova, Vice President of the European Commission, resign.

    “According to the vice president, in Hungary a ‘sick democracy’ is being built, and in addition she insulted EU citizens of Hungarian nationality by saying that they are not in a position to form an independent opinion. These statements are not only a direct political attack against the democratically elected Government of Hungary that has become commonplace, but also a humiliation to Hungary and the Hungarian people. The former is inappropriate, the latter is unacceptable.”

    He added that these statements were in contradiction with the Commission’s role as a neutral and objective institution enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty. They are a blatant violation of the principle of friendly cooperation and prevent any meaningful dialogue between Hungary and the vice president.

    “Those who violate the Treaties cannot pose as the defenders of rule of law and European values. The statements of Vice President Vera Jourova are incompatible with her current mandate, therefore her resignation is indispensable. Meanwhile, the Hungarian Government suspends all bilateral political contacts with her,” Orban informed President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.

      Considering what has happened in Nice, Lyons, and other places over the past week, Hungary is well-advised to implement its ban on Muslim entry as quickly as possible. As Orban rightly said, the Hungarians know the Muslims well as the Ottomans ruled most of the country for a century and a half, only being expelled after the Battle of Vienna (1683). Right now the main problem with Muslim illegals, however, is not that they might want to settle in Hungary (although left to their devices, they will get around to that), but to use the country as a road for their ongoing invasion of Europe. Syrians, Iraqis, Pakistanis, Afgthans, Bangladeshis, and the rest of the detritus of the Middle East have been weaponized by Turkey’s Erdogan and allowed to move across Greece and the Balkans to Europe. Thankfully now some European leaders are doing something about it on their own. They can expect no help from Brussels or Berlin.

        And they will get no help from the UK government either who are addicted to and dependent on that vast flow of Arab money into their coffers and the economy, mainly from that Vatican of Islam Saudi Arabia, for their support of Muslim interests and ambitions in the UK.

          It is very sad to say that Britain is damned and doomed, it is truly a lost cause now. Has been ever since Powell was politically crucified instead of being appointed PM, at least.

        Yet Orban repeatedly speaks of friendship and more with Turkey and other Turkics, and even backed the Turko-Azeri assault on Artsakh, ie Islamist jihadis against Christian Armenians:

    Seven dead after Corona vaccination in German old people’s home

    MiesbachThe most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was "only" the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.

    Referendum in Switzerland could end government-imposed Covid restrictions

    GeneveSwitzerland will hold a referendum that could stop the government from imposing lockdown measures. The country has not introduced a lockdown like many other European countries, but has instead - like Sweden - mainly emphasized personal responsibility. In terms of the spread of infection and the number of deaths, it is about the same as in Sweden.

    The fire in the Lipa migrant camp

    The Bosnian "refugee" camp near Lipa burned down on December 23, 2020. The timing is suspicious since one inevitably thinks of Moria and the consequences. What better way to soften European hearts shortly before Christmas Eve in order to achieve a similar effect? However, the Lipa case has some deviations from Moria, but none of them can really be explained.
