Inciting Nazi speech on Tiszaeszlár in the Hungarian Parliament

An inciting racist and anti-Semitic speech was given on 3 April 2012, after the agenda in the Hungarian Parliament.(1) Zsolt Baráth, representative of Jobbik, a Nazi party that's existence is obviously violating the Paris Peace Treaty,(2) reiterated and brought up-to-date in five minutes the racist accusations of the "Hungarian Dreyfus affair", the Tiszaeszlár blood libel(3) of 1882-83 that were deemed unfounded and refused by the independent court already that time.

Although Baráth's speech was censured by János Fónagy, secretary of state of the Fidesz party, he missed mentioning that this speech was a proof of Jobbik's being a Nazi organisation and that this should be followed by the proscription of the party.

Hungary has by now become probably the only country of the world where in case of such a speech other members of the Parliament do not leave the chamber immediately. How can representatives considering themselves democrats share a room with Nazis at all?
