“The Government trusts that those opposed to immigration will achieve a majority at the European Parliament (EP) elections, because as a result the security of the European people would come to the fore instead of the quota system”, Chief Security Advisor to the Prime Minister György Bakondi said on Hungarian M1 television’s Saturday evening current affairs program.

Mr. Bakondi said he expect the end of the debate on the quota system from a new European Parliament with a different composition. “The migrant quota is a call to action for immigrants, as is the fact that the EU is incapable of expelling people who are not eligible for asylum or who are incapable of integrating”, he stressed. He said that in his opinion solidarity with people in need can mean nothing other that taking help to where it is needed. “This is exactly what Hungary is doing, and it does not recognise any concepts that are not included in the community’s basic treaty”, he stated.

With relation to the anti-Semitic attacks in Germany, Mr. Bakondi pointed out that in contrast to the official claims, the attacks are indeed linked to immigration. “According to the German authorities the vast majority of perpetrators are not Muslim, whereas they previously claimed that their religious affiliation isn’t even kept on record”, he added. “Hungary has a policy of zero tolerance with relation to anti-Semitism, and acts with equal rigor against all crimes of this nature, irrespective of the perpetrator’s ethnicity”, the Chief Security Advisor declared.
