1. It's A Mystery To Me What Jews Still Do In Hungary
Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (12.02.12)
2. yeah, a few thousand protest. And?
Gabor ,   Budapest, Hungary   (12.02.12)
The far right party got 800 thousand votes (17%) in the last elections and they remain the same, or even more popular today. Hungary is going down for sure.
3. Actually we do pose a national security risk.
Miron ,   USA   (12.02.12)
to those who dream of Sharia states, to those who dream of "pure democracy" with those impure condemned to death, to those who demand Ierushalaim of Israel. In other words, we do have a trouble with Barak Obama as a nation.
4. Never again, till the next time
Tarbouche ,   aswan   (12.02.12)
Rwanda, Darfur, and so on World learned nothing, and when Iran and Nasrallah scream genocide the world just watches, amused.
5. wow surprised to see
k ,   US   (12.02.12)
I thought the only thing Europeans protest is Israel and minorities, surprised to see so many out to protest this political group
les ,   canada   (12.03.12)

7. Pretty ironic
Giora Me'ir ,   USA   (12.03.12)
Considering the fascist nature of the current Israeli government. Direct descendents of Jabotinsky, and the terrorists and murderers of the Irgun and Lehi.
8. hay lets invite iran into NATO
ADAM ,   CHICAGO   (12.03.12)
its easy to become a member.
9. Europeans giving up fascism???
Gunnar ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (12.03.12)
Not likely. Hasn't history taught us that?
10. Bright Day in the History of Hungary
Hungary Looks Up!   (12.03.12)
The history of Hungary is littered with dubious characters. Today it ended. Free Hungary stood up, and ended the Nazi hegemony.
11. Christian sects
Uri ,   Israel   (12.03.12)
The truth is that the main organizers and the vast majority of the participants (besides the Jews) were protestant christian sects, very active in proselytizing Jews. Very few average Hungarian people were threre...
12. The neo nazi problem in Hungary
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (12.03.12)
is a very complicated question. Alongside 100000 jews - included myself - live about 800000 gypsies or romas. These latters mean a serious threat for everydays' life of hungarians. Gypsies unemployment rate is 90%, a lot of criminals are among them and a very high birth rate caused fears and alarms in many hungarians. The previous leftist government did nothing in the gypsy problem. So as a result a lot of people voted for the neo nazi Jobbik who promised an urgent solution. Only a very small faction of Jobbik members are antisemites, but among the leaders there are descendants of old fascists families who are inciting against the jews. The trouble is not so big as it seems to be from abroad.
13. Response to Uri
Marjun ,   London UK   (12.03.12)
Uri, so those 'protestand christian' what you call sects, yet may just be main stream Christians, whether procelytizing or not, are not 'average Hungarian people' ? How do you know?And you would rather they did not support you then?
14. To No. 12
Betram ,   Londion, UK   (12.03.12)
So, thank goodness the Roma have have taken the heat off the Jews. As the 'poor whites' of the the southern states of the US discovered, there is always comfort in having a outgroup - the African-Americans - with an even lower status. We Jews have long memories when we need them and short ones when we do not.
15. shocking
dk ,   manchester   (12.03.12)
im shocked!!!
16. Correction to No. 14
Bertram ,   London, UK   (12.03.12)
I should have said 'We Jews have long memories when we want them.....(etc.)', not 'need them'.

18. They are suspicious and rightly so ,...
split ,   US   (12.03.12)
Hungarians had not forgotten the Communist regime led by Béla Kun (Béla Kohn) that had drenched their country in blood during 4 1/2 months of 'Hungarian Soviet Republic' before being overthrown by popular forces in 1919 ,... To have a control over post WWII Hungary Stalin installed a regime run almost entirely by Jews. At the top of Communist terror machinery Matyas Rakosi, Ernest Gero, Michael Farkas and Joseph Revai. The AVH, a Hungarian equivalent of the NKVD, was headed by Gabor Peter also a Jew. Their departments were staffed by their fellow trusted Jews creating a situation that eventually lead to an uprising and national tragedy in '56 ,...
19. They welcomed the Ottomans, Habsburgs and Soviets,...
