Israel's ambassador to Hungary on Tuesday urged the Hungarian government to investigate a mayor near the far-right party Jobbik a city northeast of the country, which ordered the hanging of mannequins in the likeness of Israeli leaders.
Mihaly Zoltan Orosz, Mayor of Erpatak was filmed ordering the hanging of mannequins with pictures of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former President Shimon Peres, in protest against the Gaza conflict.
"The leadership of Israel is at the service of the Antichrist," said Mihaly Orosz, you can hear in a video on the internet. He further said that the rejects the "efforts of Freemason Jews to rule the world", and that the "Jewish terror state" is "trying to obliterate the Palestinians."
"The Hungarian government must act now to stop these extremely dangerous acts" on Tuesday asked the Israeli ambassador in Budapest, Ilan Mor, in a statement.
"I am convinced that an investigation into this matter will begin as soon as possible," he added.
The Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the incident in a statement Monday denouncing the use of conflict by the mayor for "inciting hatred".
Erpatak mayor since 2005, Mr. Orosz is not a member of Jobbik, but is close to the extreme right party, the third political force in Hungary and known for his happy racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Roma discourse.
