- Hungary Matters
Menczer said: “We are a country with a statehood somewhat older than that of America … and even in the most primitive political disputes, they don’t argue that the Hungarian government would slam George Soros and his son because of their Jewishness.”
“We usually refer to [Soros and his son] as talented Hungarians, but the problem is that they use their talent for bad purposes: they support migration and war,” Menczer said.
“We support peace and we say ‘no’ to migration … that decision by Hungarian voters must be respected and it is a problem that the US ambassador doesn’t,” he said.
Menczer referred to the appreciation of international Jewish organisations, the prime minister of Israel and the Israeli ambassador to Hungary, suggesting that “Hungary is one of the best places in the world” in terms of security for people with a Jewish identity.
He added that anti-Semitism, on the other hand, “has never been such a great problem in the US as now”, with Jewish people only representing 2% of the population but suffering some 55% of hate crime cases. Fully 88% of Jews viewed anti-Semitism as a problem in the US, he added.
