Fidesz Government: words and deeds

"It is unacceptable if the dignity of any European citizen or community is hurt. Therefore the Hungarian government will take action against anti-Semitic provocation or manifestation of any kind. There is no place for argument on this issue: the Jewish community can count on us."1 - says Mr. Csaba Hende,2 Minister of Defense of the Republic of Hungary at the 11th Annual Herzlya Conference3 on Israel's national security.
This speech may be compared with an actual case documented in a previous post of us: It is not Nazi that seems to be.4 As the Hungarian proverb says: "He preaches water and drinks wine."
