Refugee centre meets local resistance

A new refugee centre will open near Vámosszabadi in Gyor county in August, despite intense local opposition, Immigration and Citizenship Office head Zsuzsanna Végh confirmed yesterday.

She told a heated town meeting that renovation of the property will be complete in two or three weeks, and that the first refugees are expected to arrive in August.

The hundreds of local residents present interrupted her speech with whistles, boos, shouts and chants.

Végh said the about 200 people who will be accommodated at the centre on the outskirts of the town will pose no risk to public health nor public safety. Most refugees are fleeing war zones with their children, she said, adding “criminals cannot reach you”.

    “Warlords have made Somalia a death chamber for gays and lesbians.”

    I am completely convinced the Fidesz/Jobbik monsters will send refugees
    like these ( running for their live and gay) …back to a certain death.

    (BTW in 1956 my grandparents supported the Hungarian refugees wherever they

    • Leto مرب

      You are right, we can’t expect anything better from those crazies. After decades of other countries assisting Hungarian refugees…

      • ViktorOrban

        The big difference is: to give shelter to these people is a burden; to give shelter to Hungarian refugees is an honor.

        • Leto مؤدّب

          Now why would that be an honor? That’s a racist statement!

    • Guru

      Wait a minute, Paul. Hungary is, as you said, no longer a democracy. So why would people be fleeing from one dictatorship to another? They should all instead be going to the no. 4 greatest country in the world, the Netherlands! Everything is so great there, so not a single person seeking refuge should be rejected, even if they pour through by the hundreds or thousands every day. Everybody wins!

      • Paul


        Guru…I try to respect you. I really do.

        So let’s take a shortcut.

        Any moral problems with this, or not? A simple yes or no will do.

            Pure libertarian BullShit meant for feeble minded idiots. No references to cite the studies and jumping to questionable assumptions to frighten low esteem racists.

            Here’s a more reliable source explaining the same thing. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19592372

            “The country’s Crime Prevention Council reported that Sweden had 46 rapes for 100,000 residents. The U.K. was a distant second with 23 rapes per 100,000 residents”

            Yes Sweden has more than 30 times the number in India, which recorded about two offences per 100,000 people.

            And we know that Indian women are fully secure to walk their streets and nothing will happen to them…?

          • Janos

            No more links my Israeli friend. Please!

          • Leto مؤدّب

            szebbjovot, I respect you but it’s time for you to retire.

        • Guru

          Oh please, typical liberal scare tactics. Not allowing gay marriage = executing gays for being gay, right? I’m sorry, am I missing something here? Are gays denied the right to exist in Hungary? Was it just an animal lovers’ parade that passed down Andrassy last Saturday?

          Stop trying to make this argument about the right to life, as so many “activists” like to spin it.

    • Leto مؤدّب

      Under UN conventions, Hungary shouldn’t accept any refugees from Somalia at all since they must have passed a “safe” country. If they are “gays and lesbians” then especially not. Feel free to give asylum to the fags fleeing from our cosy little Hungarian dictatorship, too, you stoned Dutch faggot. 🙂

      • Sándor Rózsa

        Stop smiling Orban jobbagy.

        • Aussie

          Good on you mate!

      • Janos

        Where did you hear that? You are painfully misinformed. Or, you try to mislead your fellow citizens.

      • Paul

        “you stoned Dutch faggot”

        Leto the creep:
        I do not use drugs…and
        I am not gay.

        Stupido…who is according to unnamed sources
        just a disgusting degenerated paedophile

      • Bacsi

        The united nations and the red cross arranges where they go you fucking moron! Based on which countries have the capacity to take them. The Somali refugees are waiting in camps in those neighboring safe countries for now, until they get distributed. It is done this way to ensure the neighboring countries are not overwhelmed by extreme amounts of refugees all at once. I thought you were a genius?

        • Leto مؤدّب

          According to UN rules, Hungary is not obliged to accept refugees from Somalia.

          A quote from the site of the UN Refugee Agency:


          “B. Safe Country of Asylum

          11 According to this use of the concept, asylum-seekers/refugees may be returned to countries where they have, or could have, sought asylum and where their safety would not be jeopardized, whether in that country or through return there from to the country of origin.”

          PS: You thought wrong yet again, I’m not a genius.

  • szebbjovot

    We all know who these refugees will be, opportunist criminals with names like Abdul and Achmed who will abuse the local population.

    • MagyarViking

      Now, now, The Greatest NameShifter of them all, Vona, will not be happy over that post then his best friends are just Abdul and Achmed, now when Jörg is no more than a stiff, a rather cold and bony such

      • Leto مؤدّب

        Vona is innocent!

    • Leto مؤدّب

      Or extremists like you who are racist but also support Israel. You don’t make sense girlfriend!

    • Janos

      You can’t spell and very likely can’t read.
      You express uneducated and racist views while waiving the Israeli flag. You must be confused because you are confusing all of us.
      What are you? Hungarian or Israeli?

    • szebbjovot

      I meant to say Ahmed. My father’s name was Abdullah. It’s embarrassing, my Arabic is so rusty.

  • HuFreedom

    This refugees are not wanted.

    Hungary is not a dumping ground for refugees.

    • Leto مؤدّب

      Hungary is not a dumping ground but it’s been a dumpster since the Fidesz dictatorship started my postcommie friend.

    • Janos

      Dude, Austria and Sweden take 10-100-times more than Hungary. These poor people’s worst nightmare is ending up in a homo- and xenophobic country with no economy.

      • szebbjovot

        More like a 1000 times as many.

  • HuFreedom

    The Fidesz Zionist regime is really quickstepping to open these dubious “refugee centers”, aka immigrant and colonizers who will never return to their homeland.

    Who is paying for these centers?
    The EU?

    • Leto مؤدّب

      Yes, and without the EU the Hungarian government would also collapse you postcommie bastard.

  • Janos

    In a year or so we’ll see Orban, Matolcsy and co. moving into these centers.

    • szebbjovot

      That’s possible.
