A Hungarian mayor who accused Israel of being behind last month’s terror attacks in Paris apologized after his comments became public.

Gabor Huszar, mayor of the western Hungarian town of Szentgotthard, said during a committee meeting of his rightist Fidesz party, the ruling party of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, ahead of a council meeting on November 16, “What happened in Paris is clear evidence that certain business circles, dare I say business circles which are likely backed by the Jewish state, are trying to pit Christian Europe against the Muslims.”

    If I was Prime Minister of Israel I wouldn’t share ANY intelligence with Europe. These idiots are so busy hating the Jews that they don’t realize they are already at war with Islam.

    The Hungarian Mayor is just another low-life Anti-Semite. After he makes a vile accusation of blame against Israel for the Paris attacks he says a phony sorry. Jews should avoid Hungary in every possible way. Especially, do not visit, do not buy Hungarian goods of any sort.

      every country and nationality has its share of morons. this particular specimen is no different than any other euro-trash that blames everything from climate change to male pattern baldness, on “the jooz”. anti-semitism is deeply ingrained, and there’s very little that can be done to make them like us, but maybe the wave of moslem migrants will help a little – boycotting everybody at the drop of a hat certainly won’t.

      eventually, jobbik will mismanage the economy that they promised to fix, and run out of excuses, and get voted out. in the meantime, let’s hope they don’t do too much damage. at least the party felt it was necessary to apologize, and that’s a start.
