Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban launched another attack on billionaire investor George Soros Saturday, saying he works with European Union leaders to establish a “new, mixed, Muslimized Europe.”
Orban vowed to continue Hungary’s efforts to block Soros and the EU from increasing Muslim migration to Europe during a speech in Romania. Hungary opposes immigrants “who could change the country’s cultural identity,” Orban said, adding that “Western European Christians will always be able to find security” in his country.
Orban and Soros have traded barbs for several months as Hungary strives to halt the billionaire’s operations in the country.
The government has accused Soros of pushing for a one million migrant influx to Europe through his NGOs. Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for Orban, recently told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the war against Soros has become “a matter of national security.” (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Hungarian Gov’t Steps Up Fight Against Soros)
“The Hungarian standpoint is that illegal migration is clearly a matter of national security,” Kovacs told TheDCNF. “We shall mobilize the political and legal power of the Hungarian state against anyone who undermines the security of Hungary – regardless of their origins, religious affiliation or wealth.”
EU has threatened to imposed unprecedented sanctions against Poland over reforms to its judicial system. Orban promised to defend the Poles against any legal action from the EU.
“The main target of the inquisition, the example of national governance to be weakened, destroyed and broken is Poland,” Orban said during a televised interview Saturday, according to Reuters. “Hungary will use every legal possibility in the European Union to be in solidarity with the Poles.”
