    Major Migrant Crisis in Europe (1819)

    As the US threatens to push humanity towards the brink of WWIII, the EU is reaping the fruits of “terribly short-sighted” Western policies in the Middle East, North Africa and Ukraine for the benefit of US geopolitical ambitions, the VP of the International Relations Committee at Hungary’s parliament, Jobbik Member Marton Gyongyosi told Sputnik.

    Vasily Raksha — The conflicts and turmoil in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria have triggered an unprecedented immigration to Europe, which poses an “enormous challenge” to its civilization, Jobbik parliamentarian Marton Gyongyosi told Sputnik. Additionally, he believes that the fall of the Soviet Union ushered in a new era in the history of the whole world and Europe in particular, when European integration started to exclusively serve the purpose of “extending the US sphere of influence as much as possible into the Eastern Europe.”

    “The US caused this problem in the neighborhood of Europe and then leans back criticizing European countries for not dealing with the problem efficiently.”

    Therefore, those accountable for the development of the crisis should be apportioned the responsibility of resolving, whereas Hungary was not a part to those destructive events and shouldn’t have to bear the burden of dealing with refugees.

    The internal EU problem is that the bloc has not formed a unified policy of dealing with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of people, Gyongyosi said, adding that EU countries have been split on the implementation of the Schengen agreement.

    The treaty prescribes that the member states must protect the zone’s common borders, and this is the apple of discord: Hungary’s Jobbik party insists on “physical protection of the border,” which presumes security forces and fences – an idea that Germany, France and Austria find intolerable.

    Since the sides have not reached a compromise, Jobbik suggested the government must tear the Schengen agreement apart and focusing solely on securing Hungary.

    “The Schengen agreement is dead.”

    The second point fostered by Jobbik is to process refugees as soon as possible and transport them to Austria, as the overwhelming majority of them are not going to stay in Hungary.

    However, this is another sore problem. If Hungary registers asylum-seekers as the first country of their arrival, then Germany sends them back “to the country where they are not welcome.”

    But why aren’t they, by the way?

    “We can’t integrate them.”

    The Jobbik lawmaker explained that Hungary should first completely integrate Gypsies, who account for up to eight percent of the population, into the society before considering taking in new people.

    Gyongyosi criticized Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy for inviting refugees while “50 percent of  Spanish youth are unemployed.”

    Moreover, the parliamentarian asserted the idea that countries should have the right to choose their social model freely. He underscored a historical difference in the ties of European countries with African and Asian nations.

    “My country has never had colonies and has never exploited others and should not have a bad conscience for what it has done in the rest of the world.”

    He opposed the desire of the leaders of EU countries, Germany in particular, to impose their refugee policy on other member states as the only correct one.

    “We have a different historical context and we want to preserve our society in the way it is and we don’t’ want to see any immigrants coming from Sub-Saharan Africa or from the Far East.”

    Gyongyosi outlined several threats that migrants could pose to Hungary.

    First, they come from countries like Afghanistan, mired in military conflicts for decades, where even children know how to shoot.

    “Even a child there knows how to assemble and disassemble an AK-47, and I would not feel comfortable standing close to a person with such skill.”

    A lot of incomers have no IDs, they simply call themselves ‘Syrians’, taking advantage of Europe’s welcoming attitude to the immigrants from that country. But who can guarantee that they are not members of ISIL, the Nusra Front or another terrorist organization plotting an attack in Europe, Gyongyosi wondered.

    Second, they may carry a virus. “A serious virus has already been brought in Hungary by refugees,” he reported.

    He also disapproved of immigrants’ disrespect towards Hungarian laws.

    Personally Gyogyosi feels compassion toward refugees.

    “My heart was breaking down when I saw the picture of that small child lying on the shores of Turkey.”

    Gyongyosi said that he was surprised with migrants going as far as Hungary and even further, because in his opinion, Syrian refugees should gladly find shelter in countries nearby.

    “If I were a real refugee, I would look for the closest safe country and I would be more than happy to enjoy the hospitality of the Turkish nation and wait for the time when I can return to my home country.”

    Asylum-seekers are not satisfied with conditions in Austria and go to Germany, where they later stage a protest demanding relocation to Sweden, which discredits the very meaning of the word “refugee”, the lawmaker added.

    The parliamentarian said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel surprisingly attempted to revive the policy of multiculturalism that she had declared “failed” five years earlier.

    But the governors of German free states (regions) revolted against Berlin dumping Merkel’s approval ratings.

    He called on Hungary’s foreign partners to stop imposing their refugee principles on Budapest. The country wants to keep its social order and will ask for migrants if needed. He urged the EU to leave Hungary alone.

    Gyongyosi concluded by warning that a flawed migration policy could destroy Europe by the end of the current decade. Meanwhile, he argued that the real culprit for the turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as in neighboring Ukraine, was the United States.

    “The US uses its biggest puppet, the EU, for economic and commercial goals and NATO for the military.”

    The lawmaker elaborated that Washington has been creating a “cordon sanitaire”, stretching from the Baltics across Turkey, the Middle East, Afghanistan and the Pacific to seal off its main political and military rival Moscow and its economic rival Beijing.

    And this is the exact reason why the US incited conflicts in Iraq and Syria and is fueling one in Ukraine, Gyongyosi opined.

    “Geopolitical warfare had already began”, the lawmaker, said referring to the clash of US and Russian interests in Ukraine and Syria.

    Washington has been backing the Euromaidan turmoil since day one, employing all the power of media propaganda and planting puppet figures like Mikheil Saakashvili in Kiev. Amid the discussion about whether Ukraine is East or West, the US is trying to extend its sphere of influence to Ukraine. As for Moscow, the lawmaker said that Russia correctly resorted to diplomatic methods of protecting the Russian-speaking Donbass population, which had been subjected to military oppression by Kiev.

    Budapest must also step up diplomatic efforts to protect some 200,000 ethnic Hungarians living in “Ukraine under the threat of a chauvinistic puppet government in the hands of the US.”

    “The US and Russia are already waging indirect warfare in Syria.”

    Russia’s stepping into the Syrian conflict was “a clever move”, the lawmaker said, adding that Moscow and Tehran practically declared war on ISIL. In his opinion, the legitimate President Bashar Assad is the guarantor of stability whereas the opposition groups are destabilizing the situation.

    He said that the opposition Syrian Army and ISIL fought side-by-side when they snatched the ancient city of Palmyra from Assad and then started infighting.

    The picture is now strictly black and white:  you either stand with Assad and stability or support opposition and instability. There’s no third alternative, Gyongyosi said.

    “Russia and Iran are fighting evil but the West is dragging its feet. Why? Perhaps they invested too much money into the conflict. ISIL is the creation of the West. And it couldn’t have come into existence without [the US] destabilizing Iraq.”

    The politician said that it was obvious that Russia is the ultimate target of NATO and the US seeks to plunge the Kremlin into a war in Ukraine. He emphasized that the two horrible world wars had begun in Central Europe, and it is likely that the third world war may begin there as well.

    After the Wales summit in September 2014, NATO stopped disguising its aggressive plans and started provoking Russia by moving weapons to the East, and the recent decision to open several command centers in Europe ranks among its provocative actions.

    Russia in its turn has a legitimate right not to welcome foreign troops at its borders, the diplomat said. But what would the US do if Russia deployed rockets in Mexico in response to the NATO expansion?

    The countries of Central Europe should not get in the same trap again, as “if Russia reacts, we will be the primary targets and we will sustain great damage, whereas the US is an ocean away.”

    “We will be in the epicenter of the clash of civilizations.”

    But is there any chance to avert the catastrophe? According to Gyongyosi, the Cetral European countries should send clear messages to NATO that they do not want to participate in an aggressive organization.

    “If it doesn’t help, Hungary should secede from NATO and maintain a neutral position.”

    Psychological warfare is playing a growing role, he added, citing how Iraq was publicly accused of having weapons of mass destruction that were never found. But the fake reason instilled by the media was enough to invade the country.

    The same is true for demonizing Russia and Iran.

    “They presented Iran as a devil with horns and a trident, with all those Ayatollahs and scary beardy men, but it is now the same Iran with the same Ayatollahs and we see that this is a peaceful country with good opportunities.”

    The pretext of developing nuclear weapons by Tehran was used to keep NATO anti-missile defense systems in Europe.

    “Ii is the most ridiculous argument I have ever heard”, he said, stating the NATO’s real target is Russia.

    The Western sanctions are from the same basket of restrictions aimed at curbing Russia’s capabilities. Gyongyosi said that if the EU sanctions damage Russia and backfire against Europe, then there is someone else turning the reciprocal deterioration into an edge.

    “There could be only one explanation… The strings are being pulled, and they lead somewhere in the direction of the US.”
