US House Rep says Orbán “in leading role in battle against anti-Semitism”

Visits

In general, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his government take a lot of flak on civil rights issues and the recent flap about a monument to the Nazi “invasion” of Hungary in 1944 hasn’t helped matters. But Orbán is hearing at least one voice in support, namely that of US House Representative Mario Diaz-Balart (R.-Fl). 

In a statement to Speaker of the House John Boehner, Diaz-Balart commended Orbán’s effort in combatting anti-Semitism in Hungary.

According to Diaz-Balart, “Hungary has stressed a ‘zero tolerance policy’ toward anti-Semitic attitudes” under Orbán’s leadership “and has focused on law enforcement and legal measures, Holocaust education and remembrance, and support for Jewish cultural renaissance in Hungary.”

The rep noted the recent 50% raise in pension support for survivors of the Holocaust and claimed that “Orbán is taking a leading role in the battle against anti-Semitic voices in Europe and throughout the world.”
