Refugees bring anti-Semitism to Europe, warns senior Hungarian minister
A senior Hungarian Cabinet minister warned that refugees entering Europe are anti-Semitic to defend his government's tough stance on admitting them.
Janos Lazar, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's powerful Cabinet chief, delivered the warning Thursday during a news conference in Budapest, the news site NOL reported.
"Refugees entering Europe now are strongly anti-Semitic," he said in explaining why his government was blocking the vast majority of people from Syria and Iraq from entering the country. "Where there are large numbers of immigrants, there is greater anti-Semitism — France and Germany, for example," Lazar said. He also claimed Hungary has low levels of anti-Semitism.
