Far-right party in Hungary wants Israel boycott
Protesters shout 'Executioners of Tel Aviv!' and 'Child Murderers' Jobbik party says Hungary should suspend diplomatic ties with Israel until Palestinians achieve independence.

The far-right Jobbik party says Hungary should suspend diplomatic ties with Israel until Palestinians achieve independence.

 

 

Speaking Thursday to several hundred protesters attending a rally near the Israeli embassy, Jobbik president Gabor Vona also called on a boycott of Israeli-made products.

 

The crowd later marched to the Palestinian embassy where Ambassador Marie Antoinette Sedin called for peaceful coexistence between a Palestine state and Israel, and thanked the protesters for their support.

 

Vona rejects accusations that Jobbik, which won 20.3 percent of the vote in April's parliamentary elections, is anti-Semitic. Organizers at the rally could be seen asking people to refrain from repeatedly shouting slogans like "Executioners of Tel Aviv!" and "Child Murderers!" - though many still did.
