* Hungary ??: Fidesz group leader Gergely Gulyas gave a lengthy interview to Hungarian channel ATV, discussing a number of internal policy affairs, the “Soros plan” and relations with Germany.
1. Speaking of the ‘Soros plan’, Gulyas reminded that the Hungarian-born billionaire himself published an article entitled “Here’s my plan to solve the asylum chaos”. “So the Soros plan exists. We can debate about its influence and effect, but if one can read, then it’s hard to debate about whether the plan exists at all”, he added.
The Fidesz politician stressed that George Soros is not only a symbolic figure of pro-immigration policies, because “he pursues active lobby activity against Hungary. He called Hungary a mafia state and he maintains serious pressure in the European Commission, the Parliament, the NGOs and the press he dominates to support migration and slander Hungary”.
2. Regarding Germany he said it’s not known yet when and what kind of government will be formed in Berlin, but Fidesz maintains relations with its allies, CDU and CSU. Gulyas pointed out that the resentment of the German press towards the Hungarian government negatively influences German public discussion, but inter-party relations are good.
“70-80% of the German press is left-wing or green. They look with honest and blatant hate on all the values the Hungarian government represents, the importance of Christian roots, real conservative family policies, the appreciation and protection of traditional family model, the Europe of nation states,” he added.
** There is no doubt the German media, which championed Merkel’s Open-border experiment, despises Viktor Orban. They should be careful of their words. Germany has been the biggest beneficiary of the efforts of Orban and the Central European Defence Cooperation (CEDC) to close the Balkan route. Where do they think all the illegal migrants want to settle? The Baltics?
The CEDC is a coalition of seven Central European nation states (the four Visegrad nations, Austria, Croatia, Slovenia) that actively works to protect the region from illegal migration. Macedonia, which is not a member, also played a key role.
The Balkan closing pre-dated the much over-hyped Merkel-Erdogan Pact and was the key to reducing the migrant demand for Greece by closing the route to the preferred destination of Germany. Obviously, from the actions of the migrants, they do not want to be stuck in Greece or Serbia.
It’s quite easy for the German government to discuss mythical caps when others in Central Europe are securing their borders.
Onward V4! Ignore the noise from Brussels and keep protecting Europe. ??
