Prime Minister pledges protection for Jews in Hungary

Radical nationalist Jobbik’s MP, Márton Gyöngyösi's parliamentary address a week ago was unworthy of Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in Parliament on Monday.

The Prime Minister stated that Jewish compatriots would be protected. "As long as I am in this post, no one in Hungary can be harmed because of their faith, convictions or origin. I would like to make it clear that (…) we, Hungarians will protect our Jewish compatriots" he said, adding that Hungary has suffered dictatorship and nothing or no one will derail Hungary from the democratic conviction, the love of freedom and the unconditional respect of human dignity.
