PM Orbán: The government wants “a Hungarian Hungary and a European Europe”
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán says “immigrant countries” constitute the biggest threat to European values and migrants coming to Europe endanger the freedom of religion, women’s equality and the fight against anti-Semitism
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán says “immigrant countries” constitute the biggest threat to European values and migrants coming to Europe endanger the freedom of religion, women’s equality and the fight against anti-Semitism.
The prime minister made the remarks at the 11th national congress of the Alliance of Christian Intellectuals and added that the human rights of illegal immigrants enjoyed preference over the will of European citizens, who do not want to accept all illegal migrants.
PM Orbán said the government wants “a Hungarian Hungary and a European Europe”, which is only possible “if we also accept that we want a Christian Hungary in a Christian Europe”.
The prime minister said it was important to defend Christianity to protect the forms of human existence that have sprung from it such as human dignity, family, the nation and the churches.
He said Christian politics is based on a thousand-year-old law that Hungary cannot survive without human dignity, healthy families, a strong national bond and solid religious ties. "It is a conviction of the government that what is good for Hungarian Christians is good for Hungary as well," the prime minister said.
PM Orbán also said US financier George Soros' plan to import migrants to Europe is so that he can turn central European states into immigrant countries with mixed cultures and populations. “It would simply be intellectual suicide” for central Europeans to take over western European liberalism, he said.
Hungary would become an “immigrant country with a mixed culture within the foreseeable future.” Hungary would also be home to terrorism and there would be no border protection, he said.
“The government is ready to defend the future of Christian Hungary," PM Orbán said. “Everyone, in Brussels too, must acknowledge that we will not become an immigrant country.”
Hungary believes that “immigrant countries” are taking a wrong turn in foreign policy. They have lost control of their borders and exposed themselves to a modern-day mass migration, PM Orbán added.
