US agrees with Hungary’s stance on protecting Europe’s Judeo-Christian heritage

Levente Magyar said the US understood the value-based debates European politicians are having on the protection of the continent’s Judeo-Christian heritage

Foreign ministry state secretary Levente Magyar has revealed that the United States government agrees with Hungary’s stance on protecting Europe’s Judeo-Christian heritage.

During a two-day visit to Washington this week, Magyar said the US understood the value-based debates European politicians are having on the protection of the continent’s Judeo-Christian heritage. “This is also the focal point of debates in the United States,” he said.

Addressing the annual AIPAC conference, Magyar spoke about whether the European Union’s migration policy contributes to the rise of anti-Semitism. “Over here they agree that unchecked immigration leads to a rise in anti-Semitism,” he said.

Magyar also underlined that the “pro-Israel members of the American Jewish community know and appreciate that Hungary has opened a foreign trade mission in Jerusalem”.
