Földi: Merkel as a woman is ‘unfit for war’

Concerning the “immigration issue” it must be noted that “Europe is at war,” and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel should resign as one needs to question, “when has a woman ever won a war?”, László Földi, former Hungarian secret-services official, told state-owned Kossuth radio yesterday.

Földi believes that “Europe needs to be protected as Europe is under attack”, and in an emergency situation “a completely different set of rules needs to be established”.

According to the former official, who was head of operations at the Office of Information, Merkel is completely capable of “running a continent”, however, in the current situation, steps need to be taken that are “free of emotions” and follow “crystal clear” logic. Merkel is an obstacle to creating a “universal concept” based on "the logic of protection", Földi said in his radio interview.

István Kovács, strategic director of the Center for Basic Rights, spoke on the same radio program and said that “it will pose a big problem if we are at war, because the European Union has no army; it is not prepared for the current situation”.

Kovács did not agree with Földi on the resignation of Merkel, but the two did agree that the current crisis can only be solved by defending Europeʼs outer borders. 

Kovács added that current regulations “give ample rights to migrants and very little rights to the state”.
