Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi said the real security threat to Europeans is illegal migration rather than far-right extremist groups.
Speaking in Strasbourg, after a European parliamentary plenary on “Terrorist threats posed by far-right extremist networks defying the democratic constitutional order", Hidvéghi said left-wing parties “have been trying to prove for months that the largest danger for Europe are far-right extremists”. Noting that the number of crimes perpetrated by migrants was growing all over Europe, Hidvéghi pointed to a case in Germany in December, when a migrant stabbed two young women, killing one of them. MEP Ernő Schaller-Baross said the EP was “again” implementing double standards by only reacting to far-right atrocities. He called for a united European stance against all groups expressing their political opinions through violence.
