Seeing The Effects of Mass Migration in Western Europe Turns Young Poles Populist

In a piece perpetuating the perception of annual independence day celebrations in Poland as a “far right” festival, Britain’s Guardian newspaper has inadvertently identified an unexpected side effect of European free movement of labour — the growth of populist-right ideas among young Poles.

Rather than right-wing views becoming more prevalent among those ‘left behind’ by globalism and the breaking down of borders — a common trope repeated about a perceived lack of education among Brexit voters by sneering remainers — anti-mass migration views may actually be encouraged in Eastern European nations by their best travelled and internationalist citizens.
Trying to find sense in the continued growth of nationalist, populist politics in central and European nations including in Poland — which saw a 60,000 strong independence day march in the national capital Warsaw Saturday, the Guardian quotes Aleks Szczerbiak, a professor of politics at the University of Sussex who explains going abroad and seeing life in Western Europe had the opposite effect.The academic said: “It was long assumed that young Poles would come to the west and become more secular, multicultural and liberal, and that they would re-export those things back to Poland. But instead their experience of the west seems to have reinforced their social conservatism and traditionalism in many ways.”
The paper also quoted the remarks of former member of the Polish parliament Krzysztof Bosak, who now organises for the National Movement — an organisation the Guardian calls “ultra nationalist” — who explained the experiences of many Poles living in Western Europe turned them away from liberalism. He said: “So many young people travelled to work in western countries, and then came back and told their friends and families what was going on in western Europe.
“They told them about the process of exchange of population, by which people of European origin are replaced by people from Africa and Asia, and about Islamisation.”
Although Saturday’s march has been variously described in Western media as far-right and even white nationalist, the organisers and Polish government has rejected the claims.
Rejecting the idea that the march was dominated by radical elements as “purely incidental” and “unwarranted”, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement of the march: “It was attended by thousands of people who wanted to peacefully manifest their patriotic feelings. For Poles, who differ in their opinions but who share the same values like freedom, like allegiance to their Independent Homeland, the march was a big occasion to celebrate.”

Islamists Barge Into French Monastery During Prayers, Demand Nuns Convert To Islam

Two Islamist men barged into the Carmelite Verdun monastery late last week during evening prayers in which they told the nuns to convert to Islam or go to hell.

The two men were described as being in their thirties and both sporting beards and are said to have prayed in Arabic while the nuns were conducting their evening prayers. The pair also signed the guestbook of the monastery writing “Allah u Ackbar” though there were no reports of any violence taking place L’Est Républicain reports.
Bishop of Verdun  Jean-Paul Gabriel Émile Gusching said commented on the matter saying, “they prayed in Arabic during Vespers,” and added, “They presented themselves as harbingers and told them: if you do not convert, you will go to hell.’
On Sunday both men were arrested and later brought before Verdun prosecutor Guillaume Dupont who said, “They will be summoned to the verdict court of Verdun to be tried at a hearing on April 28, 2018, at 8:45 am for aggravated voluntary violence.”
Dupont said that the charge is related to psychological violence and if convicted the pair could see a 45,000 euro fine and the possibility of three years in prison.
Abdelkrim Aïtelkaid, Imam of Verdun, said that one of the men was a recent convert to Islam having only become a Muslim three or four months prior. He condemned the actions of the pair saying, “It is not normal. We are not going to violate the sacredness of a place of worship.”
The authorities were particularly diligent regarding the incident due to the fact that last year a priest in Normandy was killed by radical Islamic terrorists who barged into an early morning mass. The Islamists initially took Father Jacques Hamel hostage but later decided to slit his throat after delivering a sermon in Arabic from the pulpit of the church.
Islamisation has become an increasingly prominent topic in France with some Muslims, like those in Clichy, choosing to pray in the street to protest the government closing an illegally occupied building that they had used as a mosque.
Last week over a hundred French conservative politicians interrupted the street prayers by singing the French national anthem and getting into minor physical confrontations with the Muslim worshippers.

Germany, Austria: Imams Warn Muslims Not to Integrate

by Stefan Frank
  • "While outside the mosque there is constant talk of integration, the opposite is preached inside. Only in rare instances are parts of the sermon -- or even more rarely, all of the sermon -- translated into German... [fostering] social integration into an internal ethnic environment, and thus ethnic segmentation." — Constantin Schreiber, author of Inside Islam: What Is Being Preached in Germany's Mosques.
  • "Politicians who repeatedly emphasize their intention of cooperating with the mosques, who invite them to conferences on Islam, have no idea who is preaching what there." — Necla Kelek, human rights activist and critic of Islam, human rights activist, in the Allgemeine Zeitung.
In the debate on migrants in Germany and Austria, no other term is used more often than "integration." But the institution that is most important for many Muslim migrants does not generally contribute much to this effort — and often actively fights it: the mosque. That is the finding of an official Austrian study as well as private research conducted by a German journalist.
In late September, the Austrian Integration Fund (ÖIF), a department of the foreign ministry published a study, "The role of the mosque in the integration process". For the purposes of the study, employees of the ÖIF visited 16 mosques in Vienna, attended several Friday sermons and spoke with the individual imams — that is, if the imams were willing to have a conversation, which was often not the case. The result of this, according to the ÖIF, is that only two of the mosque associations foster the integration of their members. The report applauds a Bosnian mosque association that also runs a soccer club. During the discussion, its imam said: "Every country, as with Austria, has its rules and laws and -- something I always stress -- it is our religious duty to comply with these standards and to integrate accordingly."
With regard to gender roles, in all of the mosques they visited, the authors were struck by the almost complete absence of women at Friday prayers:
"Only three of the mosques... provide women with their own space, which is reserved for them and actually used by them. If they exist at all, most of the mosques make the women's areas on Fridays available to men, too."

Separated by Ethnicities

With few exceptions, the Viennese mosques are organized along ethnic lines:
"There are Turkish, Albanian, Bosnian, Arabic, Pakistani and other mosques, in which sermons are generally held exclusively in the respective national language. Only in rare instances are parts of the sermon — or even more rarely, all of the sermon — translated into German."
Thus, the mosque associations are "closed spaces in terms of ethnicity and language." That difference fosters "social integration into an internal ethnic environment, and thus ethnic segmentation." In eight of the 16 mosques surveyed, this trend is further reinforced by "widespread and openly-propagated nationalism."
One mosque, run by the Turkish Milli Görüs movement, stood out as particularly radical. Milli Görüs is one of the largest Islamic organizations in Europe and is closely associated ideologically with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to the report, the imam in the Milli Görüs mosque "openly advocates for the establishment of a politically united Ummah under a caliphate." He attributes unrest in Islam to fitna ("upheaval") brought into the Islamic community from the outside. According to the authors of the study, the imam "sees himself surrounded everywhere by enemies of Islam, who want to prevent the Islamic community from dominating the world as foretold in prophecies." In all three sermons that were heard, the definitive issue was the unity of Muslims: Muslims on one side, the "infidels" on the other. According to the study, some of the imam's statements indicated a "hardened worldview driven by conspiracy theory," such as: "Forces situated outside the Ummah have done everything in their power to undermine Ummah-awareness of the Ummah itself."
The conclusion of the study states:
"In summary, it may be said of the 16 mosque associations surveyed in this study, that with the exception of mosques D01 [one of the few German-speaking mosques] and B02 [the aforementioned Bosnian mosque], they do not actively promote the social integration of their members. At best, they do not prevent it from happening. For the most part, they have an inhibiting effect on the integration process."
According to the study, six of the 16 mosque associations examined (37.5%) pursue "a policy that actively impedes integration into society and to some extent exhibits fundamentalist tendencies." Half of the 16 mosques examined "preach a dichotomous worldview, the pivotal tenet of which is the division of the world into Muslims on one side, and everyone else on the other." Six of the mosques were found to practice "explicit denigration of Western society."

Admonitions against Life in Germany

Similar observations were made by German journalist Constantin Schreiber who, in 2016, spent more than 8 months attending Friday sermons in German mosques. Schreiber, fluent in Arabic, is well-known as a moderator of Arabic television programs, in which he explains life in Germany to immigrants. He published what he experienced in these mosques in a book that has been a bestseller in Germany for months: Inside Islam: What Is Being Preached in Germany's Mosques.
Schreiber introduced himself to the mosque associations as a journalist, disclosing that he intended to write a non-fiction book about mosques in Germany. Only a few imams were willing to agree to an interview. In one instance, he was told that speaking to him was "prohibited". In general, the imams with whom he was allowed to speak, spoke practically no German. "Apparently it is possible to live in Germany for many years with your wife and children, and still not even be capable of buying bread in German," Schreiber writes.
A frequent subject of the sermons Schreiber heard in the mosques consisted of admonitions against life in Germany.
"Time and again, such as in the Al-Furqan mosque [a Sunni Arab mosque in Berlin] Muslims seemed committed to the idea that they are some sort of a community with a shared destiny: 'You are a diaspora! We are a diaspora! ... They [Germans] resembles a torrent that annihilates you, which obliterates you, and takes away your values and replaces them with its own values'."
In the Sunni-Turkish Mehmed Zahid Kotku Tekkesi mosque in Berlin, in his Friday sermon the day before Christmas Eve, the imam warned against the "greatest of all dangers" – the "Christmas peril": "Anyone who emulates another tribe becomes one of them. Is New Year's Eve ours? Are Christmas trees part of us? No, they are not!"
The imam in the Al-Rahman mosque in Magdeburg compared life in Germany to a path through a beguiling forest, Schreiber continues. Its charms had the power to entice Muslims to stray from the righteous path, to lose their way in the "thicket of the forest" until they are "devoured by the wild beasts residing in the forest."

The State Has No Clear Overview

What caught Schreiber's attention even while planning his visits, was the lack of transparency surrounding mosques in Germany. To begin with, there is no official directory of mosques; no one can say with any certainty just how many mosques there are in Germany. The private website is the only such registry. "So German authorities," says Schreiber, "rely on lists compiled by a private individual, who is very obviously characterized by a certain fundamental ideological attitude." In addition, as the registry depends on voluntary reporting for its entries, it is doubtful that mosques that wish to remain undetected would be registered there. Schreiber considers it unlikely that the list is even close to complete or up-to-date:
"I came across mosques that are entered in the list but have not existed for some time. Or newly opened mosques that are not recorded anywhere, and neither the intelligence services nor regional authorities are aware of their existence."
Moreover, Schreiber's request to the city of Hanover revealed that German authorities apparently feel inhibited about providing information concerning mosques in their own city. An employee of the local authority wrote in an email: "Please, give me more precise information as to your intended use of this list. We do not want to have these institutions subjected to general suspicion."

Fear and Silence

One surprise was the defensive reaction Schreiber encountered from people whose professions actually demand candor and cooperation. As Schreiber wanted to make sure that in translating the sermons he would not mistranslate any of the statements, he contacted what he says is one of the most prestigious translation agencies in Germany:
"I was asked to send in one of the transcribed sermons for review, to estimate the effort and costs. My request was subsequently refused. The text was deemed to be outside the 'normal field of work' of the translators, with no one confident enough correctly to translate this 'type of text'."
The search for a translator for the Turkish sermons also proved difficult: "The mere fact that I was interested in this subject resulted in the immediate accusation that all I really wanted to do was instigate 'Islam bashing'."
Schreiber was also confronted with a wall of resistance when he looked around for German scholars of Islam so that he could discuss the contents of the sermons with them. University professors -- whose salaries are paid by German taxpayers -- refused to provide information about something that relates to their own specialty.
"For many months, I directed requests to Islamic studies faculties with whom we had frequently conducted interviews in our role as editors. One university held me off for months with the excuse that they were still searching for the right counterpart. On December 16, three months after my first inquiry, the professor of Islamic studies wrote me that there was now too little time to schedule a conversation. When I responded that if need be, I could still offer an alternative date in early January, I did not receive another answer. Several other university professors told me to send them the sermons, which I proceeded to do. Thereafter, I did not receive any more responses, even to follow-up requests."
According to Schreiber, this effort constituted an "interesting experience", as otherwise, scholars of Islamic studies and Islam experts "are very obliging in offering to be interviewed on current political issues." That openness does not exist, however, when it concerns sermons in German mosques: "Many experts avoid me after receiving my inquiries, while calls and emails consistently remain unanswered." One Islamic scholar indirectly advised him to drop the project, as it could supposedly "widen the gulf." Why? Because, according to this scholar of Islamic studies, "even liberal and tolerant readers could easily find these texts to be extremely incomprehensible and strange, as well as 'crude'."

Unsuspecting Politicians

Schreiber's conclusion about the sermons he heard, is:
"After 8 months of research, I have to say that Mosques are political spaces. The majority of the sermons I attended were aimed at resisting the integration of Muslims into German society. If the issue of life in Germany was raised, then it was primarily in a negative context. Frequently, the imams described everyday life in Germany as a threat and urged their communities to resist. The common feature of almost all the sermons is their appeal to the faithful to shut themselves off and to keep to themselves."
In "virtually every mosque", Schreiber noticed "scores of refugees who had not been living in Germany very long." They too had been warned against adjusting: "While outside the mosque there is constant talk of integration, the opposite is preached inside."
The danger of this approach is demonstrated by the murder of Farima S., an Afghan woman who was murdered in the Bavarian town of Prien. Eight years ago, she renounced Islam, adopted Christianity and, two years after that, fled to Germany. On April 29, she was murdered by an Afghan Muslim in broad daylight. While a number of Muslims living in the town attended the funeral, the mosque associations pretended that the murder did not concern them. Karl-Friedrich Wackerbarth, the pastor of the Evangelical parish of Prien, where Farima S. was a member, asked the associations to condemn the crime. In October, half a year after the murder, he responded to an inquiry from Gatestone Institute: "Unfortunately, to this day," he said, "there has been no reaction."
Wackerbarth suspects that the Islamic associations do not want to make a pronouncement against fatwas by Cairo's Al-Azhar University, and others, according to which "apostates" [those who renounce Islam] are to be killed.
This situation raises the question as to why the German government hopes that mosque associations will help them solve problems. Recently, the well-known human rights activist and critic of Islam, Necla Kelek wrote:
"Politicians who repeatedly emphasize their intention of cooperating with the mosques, who invite them to conferences on Islam, have no idea who is preaching what there."

Claim: Authorities Failing as Birmingham Faces ‘Tsunami’ of Child Sex Abuse


The UK’s second city, Birmingham, could “explode” in a “tsunami of child sexual exploitation” with ruthless men even using tasers on young girls to facilitate gang rape, a politician with knowledge of the area warned.

Conservative councillor Des Flood suggested that parents could have been kept in the dark about the dangers faced by their children.
“I am worried there is a tsunami of child sexual exploitation waiting to explode across this city,” the representative of the Bartley Green ward said, according to the Birmingham Mail.
His was criticizing Birmingham City Council’s handling of child sexual exploitation after West Midlands Police arrested a suspected gang member for three schoolgirl rapes. He was bailed on every occasion, however.The Birmingham Mail claims that 14 suspected gang members had been arrested for alleged sex offences against under-age girls.
Mr. Flood continued: “Young people, especially girls, are being sexually exploited on a daily basis. Some of this sexual exploitation is clearly linked to gangs.
“Schools are a vital part of our eyes and ears in the local community, on the ground, to identify vulnerable young people, especially in terms of concerns about child sexual exploitation.
“I know of cases whereby local schools in our community have done their duty and referred serious cases of child sexual exploitation about pupils to children’s services.
“But these schools nor their parents and carers have been invited to multi-agency child sexual exploitation meetings.”
He told another Councilor that the situation was a “disgrace,” adding:
“Can you please ensure that no further child sexual exploitation meetings take place in this city which involve school pupils without the schools and, indeed, parents and carers invited to be an equal partner at the table?
“I still believe there is a serious failing in sharing information amongst agencies, especially with regards to children’s services.”
Councillor Flood also told the meeting he had heard from residents other appalling claims which had never been included in official children’s services reports.
“I know of reports where residents have reported that young girls have been tasered and gang-raped,” he said.
“This information appears to have been diluted and not shared in reports.
“I know of one young girl who has had three social workers within the space of two months, two within the same month.
“I believe there are serious gaps that need to be closed, that vulnerable young people in this city, especially girls, are falling through the gaps.
“Is there an institutionalized attitude in children’s services to keep a lid on sharing information and therefore diluting the seriousness of child sexual exploitation against vulnerable children in our city?”

Three German Cities Ban Asylum Status Migrants From Settling

The German region of Lower Saxony has barred migrants with asylum status from settling in three of its cities claiming that they want to prevent problems with integration.

Migrants with asylum status will not be allowed to settle in the cities of Delmenhorst and Wilhelmshaven in the future according to the Lower Saxony Ministry of the Interior. The two cities join the city of Salzgitter which was the first city to ban the future settlement of asylum status migrants last month Die Welt reports.
According to the ministry, the move is, “an extraordinary measure aimed at preventing the social and social marginalization of immigrant refugees.”
All three cities had previously requested aid from the regional government in Hannover complaining that they had received too large a share of asylum status migrants in contrast to their populations.
The regional government also announced plans to give the municipal governments access to a €10 million fund called the Secondary Migration Emergency Program, which will be used to fund integration projects. The “secondary migration” is a term used by the government to describe the movement of migrants who leave asylum homes after their asylum claims are approved.
The complaints of the municipalities are not the first time smaller cities and towns have spoken out about the number of migrants they have received. During the migrant crisis, several small towns were made to house a large number of migrants relative to their population.
The village of Sumte, also in Lower Saxony, was forced by the government to take in a thousand asylum seekers in 2015 despite only having a total population of several hundred.
Some have even argued that placing large numbers of migrants into rural Germany could be a positive thing for a variety of reason including countering the population stagnation of rural communities.
Last year Karl-Friedrich Thoene from the infrastructure and agriculture ministry in Thuringia said, “there can be no parallel societies in rural areas,” and added, “The village community is the ideal chance for integration.”
The settling of migrants in smaller cities has not been without problems. Last year, the city of Bautzen erupted into violence when migrants and locals fought on the streets.

Germany: 440,000 Migrant Drifters Fuel Surge in Homelessness

Homelessness in Germany has dramatically worsened with the onset of the migrant crisis, rising by 150 per cent to 860,000 between 2014 and 2016.

The rise was driven in large part by the addition of some 440,000 vagrant migrants to the books, Zeit Online reports.
The Federal Working Group for Homelessness (BAG W) statistics were extensive but not comprehensive, being based on a survey of some 176 facilities and services providing temporary accommodation to the homeless.
“Immigration has dramatically worsened the overall situation, but is by no means the sole cause of the new housing shortage,” insisted Thomas Specht, Managing Director of BAG W.The agency does not appear to provide any information on the ethnic background of the 420,000 non-migrants.
On top of the figures for people registered as homeless and in temporary accommodation — possibly including migrants who are convicted sex offenders at risk of re-offending — Germany also has at least 52,000 homeless sleeping on the streets.
This represents a rise of one third since 2014, with migrants from within the European Union represented disproportionately.
Indeed, such migrants make up 50 per cent of all homeless in some cities — a situation which lines up with the British experience since the EU extended Free Movement rights to Romania and Bulgaria in 2014, leading to an influx of begging gangs, often Romany Gypsy in origin.
Breitbart London reported in January 2017 how so-called ‘rough sleepers’ were up 50 per cent in England over a two year period, with around a fifth of them identified as migrants.
BAG W does not expect the situation in Germany to improve any time soon, with Specht predicting a further increase of around 350,000 from 2017 to 2018, raising the current figures to 1.2 million, unless there are “massive efforts” by federal, state and local governments.
Whether these efforts might include a reduction in the annual inflow of migrants is unclear, as Chancellor Angela Merkel — who suffered substantial losses in Germany’s recent federal elections — appears to be resisting attempts by potential coalition partners to make her agree to a hard cap on immigration.

Germany: 200 churches damaged and Christian symbols destroyed in just one region

Christianity has been in Germany for over 1,000 years without this kind of thing happening. Why is it happening so often now? Could it have something to do with the massive influx of Muslim migrants who believe that Jesus will return and “break the cross,” and that the idea that Jesus died on the cross is an insult to the majesty of Allah (Qur’an 4:157)? Could it have to do with the massive numbers of new arrivals who believe that their god told them to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60)?
“Germany: Two hundred churches damaged and Christian symbols destroyed in just one region,” Voice of Europe, November 14, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
In a rare candid moment, German media reported at least 200 cases of damaged churches in the region of Bavaria alone every year.
In addition, attacks on summit crosses are also increasing in the region’s mountains. Crosses on several mountain tops have been toppled and destroyed with axes or saws.
There’s a growing anger among the indigenous German population over the attacks. Some people think Islamists are behind it.
But the attacks on churches and summit crosses are not isolated cases; for months, attacks on Christian symbols have been reported from several Bavarian cantons.
There have been reports of desecration from Pentecost, Längental and from the “Prinzkopf” which lies between Sylvensteinstausee and Tyrol.
Some repairs of historic churches can cost tens of thousands of euros. It’s an attack on people’s faith and communities suspect there is a religious motive behind it, e.g. Muslim migrants might be trying to sow fear in the population.

Majority of Germans Favour Snap Election as Merkel Coalition Talks Stumble

Germany remains without a new government as coalition talks following the September vote falter, and as frustration over potential partners’ inability to come to an agreement desire among the voting public for another election grows.

A strong majority of 68 per cent of polled Germans now favour a snap election if the so-called ‘Jamaica coalition’ fails to materialise, reports Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen.
Just 29 per cent of Germans oppose another election — and even if the present coalition talks succeed, just 50 per cent said they favoured it taking power.

The idea of a fresh set of elections has been labelled as a “disaster” for Germany’s mainstream parties, as admitting coalition talks had failed “would be a signal of the incapacity of democratically elected parties”, Senior CDU politician and current Schleswig-Holstein Minister President Daniel Günther has said.
Germany, Civey poll:

CDU/CSU-EPP: 29% ↓
SPD-S&D: 20% ↓
AfD-EFDD: 14%
Slamming “extremists” who would stand to benefit from a second vote, the politician may have been making a reference to the populist Alternative for Germany party, which has already surged in the recent vote to become the third largest party in the Bundestag.
The proposed coalition between the Christian Democrats and their Christian Social Union partners, the Free Democrats, and the Green party is so called because the party colours of the participants resemble the Jamaican flag, but even after negotiations lasting late into Thursday night carried on into Friday morning, there was no apparent progress.
While the major disagreements between the parties on issues like mass migration and climate issues — both key areas for the left-wing Green party — have yet to be resolved, the talks have also stumbled on financial matters.
The latest voting intention poll shows Merkel’s CDU on a 17-year record low at 29 per cent, and the Alternative for Germany two points up on their already record-breaking September election result at 14 per cent.
The parties passed their self-imposed deadline for completing coalition talks Friday morning, when Merkel had said she would have given the nation an answer on the future of their government.
While Merkel continues to fight for her reign as Chancellor to extend to a historic fourth term, Breitbart London reported in February that 64 per cent of Germans wanted to see a new chancellor in the now passed September election.

Battle for the West: Hungarian PM Says ‘Silent Majority’ Will Prevail Over ‘Globalist Elites’ and ‘The Soros Empire’

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán has launched a stunning denunciation of globalism, declaring that the “true spirit of the age” points to a resurgence of conservative values centred on country, family, and tradition.

The Hungarian premier’s drew battle lines between a “silent majority” of ordinary people who “provide for their families, love their homelands, and insist on their Christian roots” on the one hand, and the “globalist elites, the bureaucrats who serve them, the politicians in their pay, and the agents of the Soros-type networks that embody their interests” on the other.
“We should realise that the soothing melodies pouring out of the speakers of powerful global corporations and global political organisations – siren voices encouraging breezy irresponsibility, frenzied consumption, and boundless self-indulgence – are not at all the same as the spirit of the age,” he said.
“Under the soft blanket of dreams laid down by the global elite, one finds the cold, hard reality of life.
“We see tens of millions of Europeans working hard and struggling day in, day out to keep themselves and their families afloat.

“We see how they yearn for security and order.
“We see how they cleave ever more firmly to their cultural identity, and fight every day for every square metre of their normal European life,” he said.
Orbán said the globalists understand tides are turning against them, “and therefore they’ve invented the magic word ‘populism’ to denigrate all that is national, popular, Christian and civic — but they repeat this magic word in vain; their incantations are in vain, and their political voodoo is in vain.
“Reality, flesh-and-blood people, real-life instincts, real human desires, dreams, and hopes will conquer the globalist elite still ruling Europe today. And they will make Europe – and within it Hungary – great again.”
The Fidesz leader contrasted the Hungarian ideal of the productive citizen, tied to his neighbours by the bonds of national identity rather than race or social class, with the globalist ideal of Homo Brusselicus — Brussles Man — “wrenched out of their cultural, national, religious and gender identity … a new type of human being for a new age”.
Orbán suggested this was part of a process in which some European countries have “decided to forsake Christianity, and to forsake their own national identity. They want to enter a post-Christian and post-national era” — the so-called ‘United States of Europe’.
“It is well known that we Hungarians have no desire for empires – and especially not for their viceroys,” he said.
“Today an empire is threatening us once again. We stand in the way of a plan which seeks to eliminate nations … We stand in the way of a financial and political empire which seeks to implement this plan – at whatever cost.
“Let’s not beat about the bush: in order to implement the ‘Soros Plan’, across the whole of Europe they want to sweep away governments which represent national interests – including ours.”
Orbán said NGOs tried to George Soros, the billionaire open borders campaigner, “have penetrated all the influential forums of European decision-making.”
He described how they “operate like the activists of the Department for Agitation and Propaganda of the old Soviet Communist Party. We old war horses recognise them by their smell.
“Although the Soros troops use somewhat more refined methods, they nonetheless want to tell us what to do, what to say, what to think – and even how we should see ourselves.”
The former anti-communist campaigner explained: “Migration is not the goal of the Soros Plan, but merely its means.
“Millions of people in … are being encouraged to come to Europe; indeed they are even being transported here, in order to debilitate nations and deliver the coup de grâce to Christian culture.”
“Let’s also talk candidly about the fact that the Soros Plan also seriously endangers the security of our everyday lives,” he concluded.
“In Europe’s [multicultural] countries, acts of terrorism have become regular occurrences, crime rates are increasing, violence against women has escalated, and anti-Semitism is emerging again.
“This is what we must prevent, and this is the threat against which we must defend the country. So when we say that we must defend Hungary, we declare that we must defend work, our families, security, the authority of our laws, our achievements … we must also defend our future.
“What we did not tolerate from the Soviet Empire we shall not tolerate from the Soros Empire. We shall defend our borders, we shall prevent implementation of the Soros Plan, and eventually we shall win this battle.”
