Hungarian Jews flee to Austria amid upsurge of Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism in Hungary is causing an influx of Jewish immigrants to Austria, the head of Vienna’s Jewish community reportedly said.“I am pleased people are coming but the circumstances that force them to leave Hungary due to the political situation, due to anti-Semitism, don’t please me at all,” Oskar Deutsch, president of the Vienna Jewish community, is quoted as telling the Austrian Press Agency, APA.

    Hurry, the cattle wagons are leaving Budapest for Vienna! :D

    • Vidra

      More perceptions that Hungary isn’t a nice place to live, work or invest (regardless of the size of the Exodus), another Fidesz speech that they’re doing everything they can to stop anti-semitism and another token holocaust denier sent down to “prove” it – another senior Jewish leader then appears on the podium with Orbán or Navracsics or whoever to “prove” the confidence of the Jewish community in Fidesz – and so the game goes on and on.

        Good…Thanks…the only comment which matters,,,including mine.

      • Leto مؤدّب

        The constant creation of perceptions (like “Hungarian Jews flee to Austria amid upsurge of Anti-Semitism”) is a ticking bomb. Israel’s demographical situation is another, related ticking bomb.

        • Vidra

          I don’t think this story is being spun for domestic consumption, but I agree that playing the racism card is a dangerous game. And Israel certainly ain’t the land of milk and honey though I’m not quite sure what aspect of its demographics you’re referring to.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            No, this story is being spun for international consumption. But it’s got domestic implications.

            I meant that there will be more Arabs in Israel in a few decades than Jews.

          • szebbjovot

            More Arabs than Jews… sounds like the future of Hungary that awaits us in the EU.

            But off course, if an Arab enjoys living in Hungary, he is Hungarian, correct?

          • Leto مؤدّب

            No, someone’s enjoying to live in Hungary doesn’t make them Hungarian. Immersion in the Hungarian culture and feeling for the Hungarian nation does. Glad I could help.

          • szebbjovot

            An Arab is an Arab and a Hungarian is a Hungarian, glad I could have helped.

            The exception are the people of the Carpathians, that is different.

            Why don’t you tell this to Jobbik local councillor Adonis Kassab from Syria? ;)

            I don’t think a couple of hundred Hungarian Jews moving to israel would affect the balance between Jews and Palestinians there. Besides, what has this got to do with moving 200 km westwards? Hungary, Austria, Germany – it’s all Europe. Israel most definitely isn’t.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            This game is being played everywhere and it’s part of that bigger, long term one.

          • Vidra

            Excuse me, not all Jews are Zionists with unswerving loyalty to Israel, especially not European Jews. So this is more deflection from your side. Jews leaving Hungary for Austria has nothing to do with Fidesz unwillingness to purge its own party of racists and ensure the police and judiciary take hate crimes seriously but it’s all part of a Zionist conspiracy to subvert European values. If I’ve understood you correctly (and apologies if I’m mistaken), you truly are a rabid and pathetic silly, snobbish anti-Semite.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            Sorry to see it’s taken you at least half a dozen long sentences to draw your foregone conclusion, postcommie bastard. :)

            PS: Fidesz doesn’t need to purge its own party of racists at all and they do ensure the police and judiciary take real hate crimes seriously. Keep ranting. :)

  • szebbjovot

    I can sleep at night just fine knowing that this is happening.

  • Paul

    Ahhh the nazi twins szebbjovot and fleto…..Yep funny…..A few more of these headlines will force even the Epp to vote
    Fidesz out of the EU.

    Buuuut….where to get the money than?

    • szebbjovot

      Please dont confuse me with being a twin of Leto, thanks.

      And what is so bad about this? Some Jews who happen to have a Hungarian passport decided to leave the country. Whats the big deal?

      • Paul

        “Please dont confuse me with being a twin of Leto, thanks.”
        I will not..I promise…..sorry…(smile)

    • Leto مؤدّب

      “Epp to vote Fidesz out of the EU.”

      EPP, Fidesz, EU.. Is this confused state of mind going to be permanent now with you? ;)

      Think big, Dutch moron! How about “mice to vote Fidesz out of the Milky Way”? ;)

      • Paul

        “mice to vote Fidesz out of the Milky Way”?
        Would be great! They get my support.
        L.O.L.

        • Leto مؤدّب

          I’m sure these ambitious mice will appreciate your support which increases the probability of their success from 1 to ten googleplex to 1 to nine googleplex!

            Nezőpont poll shows Fidesz with sizable lead over united opposition
            The poll was conducted from January 22 to 25 with 1,000 eligible voters interviewed over the phone.

            L.O.L

            1000 “political correct” answers….dream on.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            Nope, “political correctness” (PC talk) is a so-called “left liberal” playground where you play your stupid and boring hypocracy games.

      • Paul

        “Think big, Dutch moron! How about “mice to vote Fidesz out of the Milky Way”?
        Look….. I do not like you….but this comment was great.

        • Leto مؤدّب

          ” I do not like you”

          That’s nice to hear. :) I’d worry if you did.

    • szebbjovot

      By the way Paul.

      Zsidesz is allowing a new Synagogue being built on land that was given to them for free on Csepel.

      Zsidesz wants to “emphasize” Holocaust education and set up a special Holocaust comitee for the 70 year anniversary.

      To sum up, Fidesz is Kosher and zionism oozes out of their ass, mouths and ears.
      Leto supports this without hesitation, just like all other Fidesz opinions.

  • Flyover099

    Gee, I hope this someday happens in the US. We need some peace & quiet and honesty brought back into our system after 100+ years of abuse.

  • stanlee98

    Wake me up when the last Jew left Hungary. The sooner the better.
    What Jewish activists call “anti-semitism” is a natural self defense.
    People are getting tired of their constant demands, more money and
    more freedom for them, so they can do whatever they want, without any
    repercussions, and silencing the opposition, even if it costs losing the right to free speech for Hungarians. An arrogant bunch those hostile Jewish organizations are.
    They want more rights than the majority, without any responsibilities.
    Jewish groups are like cancerous tumors, keep growing and destroying their hosts in the process. And we are required by law to love them unconditionally. It’s a sick world out there.

    • Elsbeth

      stanlee98–seems you have a lot more information than I do. Can you tell me, more specifically, what the demands are from the ‘hostile Jewish organizations’?

      • stanlee98

        Of course I do. Jewish groups want “reparation” money, and lots of it.
        They want scholars who research the so called “holocaust” to be locked up. They want their critics silenced, they want to eliminate free speech, they always want more rights than Hungarians. I’m all for equal rights, but some minorities refuse to settle for just being Hungarian citizens, they want to be special.

    Seriously? I know that Hungary is brimming with nasty anti-semitic assholes, but isn’t fleeing to freaking AUSTRIA kinda like a gay man fleeing to Uganda?

    • Flyover099

      “nasty anti-semitic assholes”
      There must be a reason why the country is brimming.
