NAHC condemns antisemite comments made in Hungary

The National Alliance of Hungarians in Canada (NAHC) was shocked to learn that a member of the Hungarian Parliament, Márton Gyöngyösi, has made the following comment on the 26 November 2012 session of the Hungarian Parliament:

“…it is time to assess that how many people living here (in Hungary) and especially in the Parliament or in the Government are of Jewish origin, who might mean a certain homeland security risk for Hungary.”

In accordance with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom as well as universal human rights, the National Alliance of Hungarians in Canada strongly condemns any discrimination based on race, religion, ethnicity, as well as any form of anti-Semitism. The NAHC views every human being as equal and intends to stand up for every discriminated person or community in this spirit.
