Neo-Nazi with his Jewish Grandmother

Csanad Szegedi, a leader of Hungary’s illegal neo-Nazi parliamentary party Jobbik has a Jewish grandmother.
"Since 2009, Szegedi has belonged to Jobbik-Movement for a Better Hungary (Jobbik), a nationalistic political party denoted by scholars and media outlets as anti-Semitic, anti-Roma, homophobic, and neo-fascist. Szegedi garnered copious media attention three years ago for attending the first session of the European Parliament clothed in the Uniform of Jobbik’s banned paramilitary arm, the Hungarian Guard."(1)

"The campaign to eliminate Jobbik from the Hungarian political arena has shifted into higher gears... Szegedi's grandmother, Magdolna Klein was deported to Auschwitz in June 1944. After returning from the camp, she married to Orthodox Jew, Imre Meisels who died in the '80s. Szegedi's grandmother is still alive."(2)
Barikad.hu, the rude neo-Nazi website (and also the closely related weakly Bar!kád)  of Jobbik published an interview with Szegedi who was explaining at great length that he was a "good Jew".(3)(a)

(a) As we have learnt from history, someone being hated by Nazis is not necessarily a Jew in reality. It is enough that a Nazi decides that you are one.
