NEO-NAZI TAKEOVER: Far-Right Hungarian Party Support Surges Across EUROPE

Neo-Nazi sentiments have been gaining strength across the EU. The European Commission is expressing “great concern” over the rise of anti-Semitic incidents across the block. RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky reports from Hungary where the far-right neo-Nazi party is currently enjoying a huge surge of support.

TWO Welsh European election candidates confirmed yesterday they will refuse to take part in a debate with fascist party leaders.

NO2EU – Yes to Workers’ Rights lead candidate Rob Griffiths and Welsh Green Party leader Pippa Bartolotti pulled out of a BBC Radio Wales debate in order to avoid sharing a platform with BNP and Britain First representatives.

Mr Griffiths and Ms Bartolotti will instead join a Unite Against Fascism demonstration outside the studios on Wednesday.

“I will not take part in any event which normalises fascism and treats its ideas as a legitimate part of the political spectrum”, said Mr Griffiths.

He added that it is a “tragedy” that British government and EU politics are creating “new breeding grounds for fascism” from France to the Ukraine 69 years after they were defeated in World War II.

Mr Griffiths’s stand comes after Britain’s First offensive party election broadcast (PEB) was aired on BBC Wales and ITV on Friday evening.

It included the slogan “Remember Lee Rigby” that the Electoral Commission has allowed to stand and will appear on ballot papers on May 22 and repeatedly stated “Enoch Powell was right.”

Almost 100 members of the public have already contacted the BBC to complain about the fascist propaganda since it was aired.

Protesters drive off far-right as Vona attempts to rally hatred in London

Anti-fascist campaigners struck a blow against the far-right yesterday by kettling supporters of the Hungarian neonazi party Jobbik inside Holborn Tube station.

A planned rally in Camden with Jobbik leader Gabor Vona, scheduled on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, was cancelled as more than 70 fascists were surrounded by protesters and forced to shelter in the station ticket hall.

After two hours they had to get back on the underground and reconvene at a dismal and last-minute gathering in Hyde Park.

Hundreds of anti-fascists gathered in the pouring rain outside the station at 12.30pm to protest against the arrival of Mr Vona, whose racist and anti-semitic political party is now the third biggest in Hungary.

There were tense scenes as fascists dressed in Hungarian colours and carrying flags attempted to leave to attend the rally but were pushed back by demonstrators.

The stand-off lasted around two hours with police forming a line separating the two groups.

The fascists’ numbers swelled as small groups appeared outside the station to attend the rally, which was supposed to start outside Holborn station. Police officers escorted them inside as protesters shouting “nazi scum – off our streets” surrounded them.

Hungarian Marta Berai attended the protest.

She said: “I am against this fascist development in Hungary. It’s terrible that it has developed like this. I was surprised – I didn’t know there were so many fascists in Hungary.

“It’s shameful.

“The Hungarian community in London are outraged.”

London Assembly member and former Labour MP Andrew Dismore spoke outside Holborn station after hearing that the meeting had been cancelled. Earlier this week he wrote to Home Secretary Theresa May demanding that Mr Vona be banned from holding the event.

He told the Star: “I think it’s been magnificent that we’ve been able to stop them. We’ve been able to stop the nazis peacefully and that’s what it’s about.

“We don’t want to get into fights with nazis we simply want them off our streets.”

After being forced to get back on the underground the Jobbik supporters re-emerged at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park, where police allowed a 100-person rally with Mr Vona to go ahead.

Unite Against Fascism (UAF) said the disruption of Mr Vona’s plans was a “good day for anti-nazis.”

The organisation’s joint national secretary Sabby Dhalu said: “UAF has played a central role in driving back fascism in Britain. Jobbik’s fascist hatred has no place in a modern society here or in the rest of Europe.

“Wherever fascists have a presence, racist, anti-semitic and Islamophobic attacks increase.”

AN AMERICAN PHILANTHROPIST CHALLENGES HUNGARIAN NEO-NAZI “JOBBIK” TERRORISTS

1 Aug 2011

OPEN LETTERS

Morvai

Krisztina Morvai, member of the European Parliament for the Jobbik nazi party. “In 1989 she was the first recipient of a British Government scholarship for students in central Europe and was presented with her award by UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher personally”, according to Wikipedia.

wrote an open letter to Eleni Tsakopoulos-Kounalakis, United States Ambassador to Hungary, on the occasion that the ambassador visited the headquarters of three parties but not that of Jobbik, on the night of the 2010 general election. This was answered by Richard Field, an American businessman, living in Hungary, the main financial supporter of the party Politics Can Be Different.

“Can anyone imagine Ms. Morvai as the president of the Republic of Hungary, the post for which her party nominated her? As it is, she is an embarrassment in Brussels.”

Theresa May should take a stand

Vona’s Jobbik party has a consistent record of Holocaust denial

Home Secretary Theresa May was guest of honour at the Board of Deputies of British Jews annual dinner last November, telling those present that the coalition government would “not tolerate anti-semitism in any form.”

She has the opportunity to make good on that pledge today by slapping a ban on Hungarian fascist leader Gabor Vona’s planned visit to Britain this weekend.

Vona’s Jobbik (Movement for a Better Hungary) party has a consistent record of Holocaust denial and hatred towards Jews and Roma who were the principal targets of nazi genocide.

A Budapest government ban on Jobbik’s Hungarian Guard movement paramilitary wing was confirmed in December by the European Court of Human Rights, ruling that its marches were intended to induce fear and lay the basis for an “essentially racist” legal order.

The ECHR also highlighted the Hungarian judgement that “the movement’s activities and manifestations were based on racial conflict between Hungarian majority and Roma minority,” which reflects fascist involvement in several murders of Roma.

However, despite ordering disbandment of the Hungarian Guard, the conservative government in Budapest has been half-hearted at best in its efforts to counter anti-semitism.

Hungarian Jews have threatened to boycott the official Holocaust memorial events this weekend in protest at its trivialisation by the Veritas historical institute, set up by the government in November.

Jewish umbrella body Mazsihisz demanded the removal of its director Sandor Szakaly, who recently referred to the 1941 removal of 18,000 Jewish refugees to the Kamenets-Podolsk death camp in Ukraine as “a police action against aliens.”

Jobbik leaders have been able to get away with calls for a special police force to deal with “Gypsy crime” and protests against the World Jewish Congress being held in Budapest, dubbing the delegates “Israeli conquerors” who should “look for another country in the world because Hungary is not for sale.”

Vona claims that his planned visit is to address Hungarians living in Britain on Sunday about national and European parliamentary elections due later this year.

If our government allows him a platform in London, he will attract a turnout not only from fascist-minded Hungarians but also from the flotsam and jetsam of Britain’s far-right that has been in free-fall in recent times.

This country’s own faded fuehrer Nick Griffin has already expressed his delight at forming an electoral pact for the EU poll with Jobbik.

Griffin‘s BNP made a tactical decision some years ago to mute its anti-semitism and put its jackboots and swastikas in cold storage in the hope of making an electoral breakthrough.

As that breakthrough has degenerated into a breakdown, he seeks to enthuse dwindling numbers of the faithful by aligning the BNP with openly murderous groups.

As Griffin himself put it, “there are a common core set of values.” These are visible and readily understandable.

It should be unthinkable for any mainstream politician to allow free entry to an undesirable such as Vona, especially when Holocaust Memorial Day is due to be commemorated on Monday.

If the words Never Again inscribed at Dachau concentration camp are to mean anything, there can be no question of allowing the vile racism that characterised Germany’s nazi regime to be spouted freely.

The Home Secretary should order the immigration authorities to ban entry to Vona and any other Jobbik leader coming to Britain.
