News from Hungary

Post by Ariel »

Hungary is in the European Union’s Schengen visa-free travel zone and as such an attractive destination for tens of thousands of migrants entering Europe through the Balkans from the Middle East and Africa.

In the first six months of this year, the number of migrants crossing into the EU via Hungary’s border with Serbia exceeded 66,000.

Hungary is planning to build a 4-meter high fence on its border with Serbia “as fast as possible” to stop the flow of migrants, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said last week, while Prime Minister Viktor Orban said the country did not want to take in any economic migrants and would consider as refugees only those who were escaping a potential conflict in one of Hungary’s neighboring countries.
Riot breaks out at Hungarian migrant camp,” July 5, 2015

A conflict of a religious nature between two refugees (a turkish and an afgan) at the Debrecen camp was allegedly behind the riots that happened on a nearby road on Monday afternoon. About 100 migrants staying at the refugee camp in Debrecen, in eastern Hungary, started throwing stones at cars passing by on road 471 and beating the vehicles with sticks, according to eye-witnesses.

Later, police said one officer took a hit from a stone and was slightly injured. Police appeared in raid gear and managed to drive the refugees back into the camp, behind a fence where they remained in a line, facing police and shouting, the correspondent said. The conflict turned violent after 2.30 pm when two refugees engaged in a row over religious (islam) matters, the local county police said.

The argument turned heated and “hundreds of others” joined in, including a man who allegedly “stamped his feet on the Koran”, police said, citing eyewitnesses. Another witness said one refugee took the other’s Koran, which contained 200 euros hidden among the pages. Police spokesperson Erika Demeter said the refugees blocked the nearby highway, lit rubbish bins and threw stones at cars passing by.

Fully 154 police officers were sent to the site and police used tear gas to disperse the group. Nobody was hurt, Demeter said but one man was arrested in connection with the events. The camp has been sealed off temporarily and migrants are allowed only to enter the premises, the correspondent said. Police presence remains high by the camp, he added.

Wasted effort. It won't stop the swarming. Nothing will.

Notice that these refugees/ migrants are all military age young, able bodied men who probably already have families, clans, tribes whom also will have to be admitted at one point to Europe.

Immigrants of Doom
In the mid-sixties, the West accepted the suicidal doctrine of multiculturalism as its official approach to the problem of immigration. This resulted in an endless stream of immigrants from third world countries pouring into Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia, subsequently displacing the native populations and creating both social tensions and an unsustainable financial burden.

Uncontrolled immigration has contributed to a dissipating economy, disturbing crime statistics, a high rate of unemployment among natives, swollen welfare rolls so out of control they are practically bankrupting Western countries, and has even led to an unprecedented wave of terrorism. But the gravest problem of massive immigration, that which dwarfs all the rest, is the supplanting of the native populations of Western countries with people who quite often do not share those values that were and are the cornerstone of Western Civilization. Moreover, they often come to the West with the intent to destroy it. The sharp growth of the number of immigrants often openly hostile to the West, combined with the distortion of traditional Western values by liberals and leftists pose a serious threat to the very existence of Western civilization.

The truth is simple: immigration builds cheap houses but ultimately destroys the country.

This book reveals the stunning facts that our governments and media attempt to conceal.

One thing wrong in that quote: immigration doesn't build cheap houses. Daily we hear politicians whining on about the housing shortage in the UK and the lack of "affordable housing". Its not a housing shortage, it's a population surplus, If all the immigrants in the country were to vanish overnight, they'd be just about giving houses away the next morning.

I guess you are right. I feel sorry for the people in Hungary. Hungary is not a rich country and cannot support thousands of people. Families are being thrown out onto the street, if they cannot help them, then they don't need immigrants. It is a shame that the Hungary government is condemned over the anti-immigration issue.

And a Serbian PM is 'shocked' at Hungary's plan for this migrant fence He is afraid that the migrants will stay in Serbia.
"Building walls is not the solution. Serbia can't be responsible for the situation created by the migrants, we are just a transit country. Is Serbia responsible for the crisis in Syria?"

New arrivals in the Hungarian capital will for the month of July be greeted by English-language billboards bearing welcoming - if slightly bemusing - slogans, such as "Come to Hungary by All Means: We're Already Working In London!”

Image
While the official, Hungarian-language slogans include “If You Come To Hungary, Do Not Take The Jobs Of Hungarians”, and “If You Come To Hungary, You Must Respect Our Laws,” the spoof versions say "Please Excuse Our Empty Country, We've Gone to England," “If You Come To Hungary, Bring Another Person With You,” and “If You Are Prime Minister of Hungary, You Must Keep Our Laws.” Mr Kovács said he is planning billboards for his campaign supporters in London, Vienna and Berlin promising lower wages in the UK, adding that migration away from Hungary is a much bigger concern for most Hungarians than immigration into the country.

Hungary's capital, Budapest has one of the lowest prices for renting accommodation in all of Europe, simply because they have a huge housing surplice, because a lot of people went to live and work elsewhere in Europe, England being very popular, because most younger Hungarians speak some English from school.

Building this fence is a window dressing exercise, much like the "blind" border guards just before the fall of the Berlin Wall. They ignored the thousands of East Germans escaping to Austria, but because there wer guards, the East German government could not accuse the Hungarians of helping people escape.

The border between Serbia and Hungary is quite short. What is to stop migrants to simply walk round it, using crossings from Croatia or Romania instead?

The Hungarian prime minister is very much against immigration into his country, but not against the notion that they go elsewhere in Europe, and he is strongly opposing the idea of taking a quota of immigrants from other countries in Europe. Despite of this, because of its location and leaky borders, there are a lot of immigrants in Hungary. His view is that they need to be contained in camps and made to work to pay for their food.

So I DO believe he does not want any immigrants to come to Hungary other than from Europe, he likes people to come with money to retire there or come for a holiday, drinking the excellent wine... , but he made a stance against the immigration quota idea from Brussels, like almost all other Eastern European countries, so he is seriously worried now he will he lumbered with large numbers of people he cannot conveniently give a ticket to go to Germany, Holland or Sweden as the Greeks and Italians do.... And unlike places like the Poland or the Baltic states, he is right on a major migration route, so people will come, if he wants them or not.

You were right Manfred, that the fence would not stop the migrants.

Syrian migrants cross under a fence into Hungary at the border with Serbia, near Roszke, August 26, 2015.
Hungarian police use tear gas against migrants in city of Roszke

Unrest broke out at a migrant reception center in Hungary on Wednesday as police struggled to deal with an influx of refugees arriving from Serbia. Local television showed tear gas being fired.

Police rounded up 300-400 migrants at the border area of Roszke and addressed them through megaphones, according to a Reuters reporter at the scene.

A police spokesman said that some 200 migrants at the reception center had refused to be fingerprinted.

Dozens of migrants crossed over to Hungary on Wednesday, underneath a border fence set up by authorities to keep them out of the country, AP reported.

"We raised the fence and crossed it now. We were here from yesterday. We are now without, we are very hungry, there's no food, there's no medicine for children, there's nothing. We are so tired, frankly," said Odei, a Syrian refugee from Daraa.

The chief commissioner of Hungarian police, Karoly Papp, said on Wednesday that police were preparing six special border patrol units of an initial 2,106 officers to be sent in depending on the situation on the Serbian border. They would be equipped with helicopters, horses, and dogs.

Hungary also outlined plans on Wednesday to send the army, mounted police, and dogs to its southern border in an attempt to deal with the migrant crisis.

Government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said parliament would debate next week whether to deploy the army.

"Hungary's government and national security cabinet...has discussed the question of how the army could be used to help protect Hungary's border and the EU's border," Kovacs said.

A total of 1,300 migrants were detained on Wednesday, according to Reuters. Meanwhile, a record 2,533 migrants were caught entering Hungary from Serbia on Tuesday.

Hungary has requested more European Union funds as it struggles to deal with the surge of migrants pouring into the country. The prime minister's chief of staff told Magyar Hirlap newspaper on Tuesday hat more cash is needed – and claiming that what has already been doled out was done in a humiliating way.

The country is erecting a 3.5-meter-high fence along its border with Serbia in an attempt to deter migrants from crossing onto its territory. It aims to complete the barrier by November.

Budapest also plans to tighten penalties for illegal migration and trafficking.

According to Hungarian authorities, more than 140,000 migrants have entered the country from Serbia this year. The numbers have soared in recent weeks, as Greece and Macedonia also struggle to control the influx of refugees.

Hungary is seen as a gateway for the migrants, as it is part of the EU's borderless Schengen zone. From there, the refugees - most of whom hail from Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan - can travel to more affluent western and northern European countries.

Not a very good fence after all. Farmers know that if they want to keep the foxes from their hens, they have to dig the fence well into the ground.

Hungary is sending wrong message to jobless and homeless Muslims.

It is advertising that we have lots of jobs and empty houses as our young people have migrated elsewhere in Europe.

Orbán: “Force will be used to protect border if Erdogan opens gates”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has declared that Hungary would be forced to “use force” at its southern border to protect the European Union if Turkish President Erdogan makes good on his promise to ‘open the gates’ and ‘flood’ Europe with migrants.

“If Turkey sets off further hundreds of thousands on top of (existing migrant flows), then we will need to use force to protect the Hungarian border and the Serbian-Hungarian frontier and I do not wish for anyone that we should need to resort to that,” Orbán said.

In 2015, Orbán built a steel barrier on Hungary’s southern border with Serbia to put an end to the Balkan migration route after hundreds of thousands of third-world migrants made their way to Western Europe from the Middle East during the migrant crisis.

Turkey is now holding a gun to the EU’s head. Erdogan and other top officials have continually threatened to flood Europe with the nearly 4 million Middle Eastern migrants currently held up in Turkey.

In August, Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu said, “We are facing the biggest wave of migration in history. If we open the floodgates, no European government will be able to survive for more than six months. We advise them not to try our patience.”

And last week, following widespread criticism of Turkey’s military incursion into northeast Syria from various EU member states, Erdogan once again threated to ‘open the gates’.

“We will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way,” Erdogan said during a speech to Turkish lawmakers.

Following Turkey’s threats, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis urged NATO to increase its naval patrols in the Aegean Sea to prevent an onslaught of illegal migrants landing in Greece.

This week, during an interview with Hungarian state media, Orbán said: “The next weeks will decide what Turkey does with these people,” . “It can steer them in two directions: take them back to Syria or set them off towards Europe.

Turkish President Erdogan is set to visit Budapest early next month.

‘Isis leader who beheaded imam and ordered dozens of killings’ on trial in Hungary

A suspected Isis military leader is on trial in a Hungarian court, accused of terrorism and crimes against humanity.

The 27-year-old Syrian, identified as F Hassan, was charged in September after an international investigation led to his capture in Budapest’s main airport at the end of last year.

Mr Hassan deserted from the Syrian army in 2011, then joined Isis sometime before 2014, prosecutor Andras Urbanyi told the court. He became commander of an Isis unit and actively recruited members, Mr Urbanyi said.

He allegedly participated in the murder of dozens of people near the city of Homs in 2015.

“In May 2015 Hassan’s unit was ordered to capture an area rich in artefacts near Homs,” Mr Urbanyi said. “Hassan was to draw up a death list, naming those to be executed out of revenge or to intimidate locals. The list was approved by Isis leaders.”

His brigade went door to door, pulling and murdering individuals on the list either with gunshots or knifing, Mr Urbanyi said. Others were forced to gather at the town’s main square.

“At the square they were forced to witness an execution. The local imam was beheaded. Hassan and an accomplice severed the imam’s head with long, seesawing motions, then held up his head to the crowd.”

Six women and one child were among at least 25 people killed by the militants.

Mr Hassan, cuffed on his hands and feet and accompanied by a dozen heavily armed counter-terrorism agents, gave a detailed testimony of his upbringing, family and his subsequent migration to Europe.

He denied involvement in the crimes, claiming not to have been in Syria when they took place.

“Your honour, I committed nothing, I just want my family,” he told judge Gergely Miko. “I was not even in Syria in 2015. I was in Turkey, never to return to Syria.”

Mr Hassan's father told the court that his son had been jailed in Syria for refusing to join Isis.

His attorney, Janos Kelen, echoed Mr Hassan's claim that his client was not in Syria at the time of the incidents, asserting that Mr Hassan was illiterate and incapable of leading units and organise killings.

Mr Kelen disputed that a video of the execution, shown in court, featured Mr Hassan. Witnesses did not personally see the atrocities, he said, while a lie detector test was conducted illegally, without a defence attorney.

The lawyer said Mr Hassan had tried to kill himself while in prison. Mr Hassan claimed he had been mistreated by police and feared being poisoned.

Mr Hassan had obtained refugee status in Greece, before being apprehended in December at Budapest's Ferenc Liszt International Airport when he and a female companion were found to have forged personal IDs.

Hungary’s PM: We don’t see these people as refugees, we see them as Muslim invaders

In an interview with German newspaper Bild, Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orban called the migrant crisis an invasion.

He said: “We do not consider these people to be Muslim refugees, we regard them as Muslim invaders.”

“One has to cross four countries to arrive from Syria in Hungary”, Orban said. “Those people do not run for their lives but seek a better life. The refugees should have requested admission in advance, but instead they had breached the border illegally.”

According to Orban what Europe has seen was not a wave of refugees, but an invasion. He mentioned that he never understood how in a country like Germany the chaos and the illegal crossing of borders could be celebrated as something good.

The Hungarian prime minister rejected the idea that his country should accept people from Muslim-majority countries. “We believe that a large number of Muslims inevitably leads to parallel societies, because Christian and Muslim society will never unite,” he said.

Orban added that Germany’s SPD leader Martin Schulz should have more respect for his country. Schulz earlier criticised Orban’s visit to a CSU party conference in Germany. Schulz said that Orban’s refugee policy can be considered as “dangerous”.

Top Hungarian official says 100,000 migrants gathering on Balkan Peninsula

A top government official in Hungary has warned that over 100,000 migrants have gathered on the Balkan peninsula and have the potential to flood Europe and give rise to a crisis similar to the migrant crisis of 2015.

Speaking at a press conference over the weekend, Hungary’s State Secretary Szilárd Németh said that although “the situation is still under control” it’s beginning to look like the big crisis in 2015”, Hungary Today reports.

Nemeth, during his address, confirmed that around 100,000 migrants have gathered mostly on the West Balkans, saying that if they are “let loose on the Hungarian border, there could be big trouble, and we must prepare for that possibility.”

Last Friday, Hungary police announced that they had discovered two underground passageways used by migrants to illegally enter into Hungary from Serbia. Shortly after the discovery, dozens of migrants were arrested in the village Asotthalom, where the tunnels were found.

During an interview on Kossuth Rádió on Sunday morning, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s chief security advisor, György Bakondi, said that although the increased presence of migrants has mostly been seen on Hungary’s border with Serbia, “an increase in illegal activity has been registered on the Croatian, Romanian and Ukrainian borders as well.”

Last week , Hungarian security forces intercepted 600 people trying to cross into Hungary from Serbia compared to about 80 in the same week in 2018.

So far this year, 11,808 people are said to have attempted to enter Hungary illegally, with 2,418 attempts being made this month alone.

"Ottoman Hungary was the territory of southern and central Medieval Hungary which was ruled by the Ottoman Empire from 1541 to 1699."
Looks like Hungarians don't have historical amnesia. Like other western countries.

How many Americans know about the Barbary pirates? 1801-1805
I bet they don't teach this in History lessons If they teach history at all.

Violent, organized group of illegal migrants tried to invade Hungary at Röszke

Early this morning, border guards fired warning shots to deter a mass of migrants from illegally crossing the border.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán attended a coordination meeting at the Ministry of the Interior in the morning with the Migration Working Group. The meeting came after a group of some 50-70 migrants had attempted to break through Hungary's border fence with Serbia at the southern border station of Röszke earlier that morning. Hungarian national police issued a short statement at 7:22 a.m. saying that "a larger group of migrants attempted to illegally enter Hungary in Csongrád County, but police stopped them. The few who managed to enter Hungary were detained by police, and one border guard had to fire several warning shots."

At a press conference following the incident, György Bakondi, the Prime Minister’s Chief Security Advisor, said that “a violent, organized group of migrants tried to invade Hungary at Röszke.” Police blocked the first attempt and arrested a man. But this was only the first wave, and shortly thereafter a group of nearly 70 people tried to cross the gate, shutting down the border crossing, which would otherwise have been open between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

At dawn, there were three armed guards who immediately called on the migrants to return. When they disobeyed, one of the guards fired three warning shots, and a large number of the migrants then turned back.

“The Serbian-Hungarian border is under severe pressure, with more than 3,400 people having tried to enter Hungary illegally in January alone,” said György Bakondi, adding that “Illegal groups are still gathering now; this one was a blatantly aggressive and violent group.”

Minister of Interior, Sándor Pintér, said that he had recently been at the border and that there was information that migrants would try to break in at several places. The Minister found that the Hungarian police were prepared and ready to protect Hungary’s borders. “No one can enter Hungary individually or in a larger group. The police proved this, and this is the basis for Hungary's security,” he said.

Sándor Pintér said that the signaling system was working and everyone was arrested. However, they would nevertheless investigate what had happened and, if necessary, changes would be implemented within ten days.

While crossing into Hungarian territory at night, the migrants severely damaged the wire fence on the concrete cordon separating the border; a section of the wire mesh – more than 10 meters in width – had been cut off from the fence posts. The concrete cordon separating pedestrian and motor traffic was damaged as well.

Incidents like the one this morning point to an alarming direction: illegal migration pressure at Hungary’s southern borders is on the rise.

Hungary: Military boats deployed to Tisza river to defend Europe

Image

The Hungarian government has deployed military boats to patrol the river border with Serbia to stop illegal border crossing into the country through the Tisza river, a key point of entry for migrants trying to make their way into the E.U.

Hungarian officials say that close to 100 migrant invaders are attempting to cross into Hungary illegally from Serbia and Romania every day. The military has deployed 500 soldiers alongside Hungarian police to put a stop to it, the BBC reports.

“If they come in groups, they always have leaders. They have excellent equipment. We found night-vision goggles, and even a ground sensor,” Hungary’s Deputy Minister of Defence Szilárd Németh told Euronews during a recent interview.
“Fence cutters, spades, maps, lists of addresses, taxi numbers – they have them all. They are very well prepared to cross the border of Hungary,” Németh added.

Last week, Hungarian border police managed to push back a group of 50 to 70 migrant invaders who stormed a vulnerable section of border fencing along the Serbian border.

Commenting on the border breach, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s chief security advisor, György Bakondi, said: “A violent, organized group of migrants tried to invade Hungary at Röszke. The Serbian-Hungarian border is under severe pressure, with more than 3,400 people having tried to enter Hungary illegally in January alone.”

“Illegal groups are still gathering now; this one was a blatantly aggressive and violent group,” Bakondi added.

Last, month Secretary of State of the Ministry of Interior Károly Kontrát noted that in 2019, 17,200 illegal migrants were stopped trying to enter Hungary. Kontrát has also warned that the number of migrants gathered on the Balkan Penninsula had reached 100,000, and had the potential to spark a migrant crisis similar to what was seen in 2015.

At the beginning of the year, the Hungarian government announced that it would be doubling the number of soldiers deployed to its borders.

Hundreds of migrants bused back to Serbia after amassing at Hungarian border

By ARTHUR LYONS

Serbian police on Friday morning bused 500 to 700 illegal migrants from Africa and the Middle East back to asylum centers in Serbia after they had amassed at the Hungarian border on Thursday night.

Image

The migrants, most of whom were Syrian, Afghani, Yemeni, Moroccan, and Palestinian, arrived at the Kelebia-Tomba border crossing last night when they started to protest and attempted to enter Hungary, Balkan Insight reports.

As the caravan gathered at the Serbian-Hungarian border, they were met with barricades and Hungarian border guards who were determined to stop them. Hours later, Serbia’s Defence Minister, Aleksandr Vulin, visited the group and said that had been manipulated and “brought here by false promises that someone would open the border for them”.

Vulin accused NGOs of encouraging the migrants to make their way to the border without any guarantee that they would be able to cross into the European Union.

“It is a shame that some groups mislead the migrants in Serbia with falsified news and rumors that Hungary has opened its borders,” Vulin said.

Not long after, in the early hours on Friday morning, Serbian authorities collected the convoy of migrants, placed them onto buses, and transported them back to asylum centers further inside the country.

The ordeal comes about a week after Hungarian border police managed to push back a group of 71 migrant invaders who managed to push through a vulnerable section of border fencing along the Serbian border.

In January alone, the Hungarian government reported 3,400 illegal entry attempts.

Orbán: “It’s forbidden to say so in Europe, but migration is an organized invasion”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán – the only head of state in Europe who’s been willing to take any real action to stop the ongoing migrant invasion of Europe – on Thursday spoke of the mounting migratory pressure on Hungary’s southern border.

Following a routine inspection of Hungary’s border fence with his Slovak counterpart, Peter Pellegrini, Orbán said that Hungarian authorities have started to prepare for an expected increase in the number of organized migrant caravans attempting to enter the country illegally as the weather improves, Remix News reports.

During an impromptu press conference, Prime Minister Orbán took the opportunity to express his gratitude for Slovakia’s support, saying: “This is hard work which we would have a hard time doing without help and our allies.

Orbán also took the opportunity to slam the lying, international press for broadcasting a grossly distorted image of the ongoing migration crisis which simply does not correspond to objective reality, arguing that 95 percent of newly arrived migrants are military-aged men.

“It’s forbidden to say so in Europe, but this is an organized invasion,” Orbán said.

So far this year, more than 5,000 migrants have attempted to enter Hungary illegally, with many of them showing up in large organized caravans.

The Hungarian Prime Minister has argued that the migrants are being supported by organizations that claim to be ‘humanitarian’ NGOs but which operate like people smuggling groups. These organizations have substantial financial resources and noteworthy logistical capabilities, Orbán added.

Orbán also mentioned that the Hungarian secret service was closely monitoring the situation, and from the intel that they’ve acquired it’s clear that the illegal migration is being assisted by “half-human trafficking organizations calling themselves NGOs”.

Earlier in the month, Hungarian border police managed to push back a group of 71 migrant invaders who stormed a vulnerable section of border fencing along Hungarian-Serbian.

Last week, Voice of Europe reported that Serbian police bused 500 to 700 illegal migrants from Africa and the Middle East back to asylum centers in Serbia after they had amassed at the Hungarian border.
