Viktor Orbán: naive and self destructive immigration politics rules in the EU
by Dalma Tóth
2016 September 16.
According to the Prime Minister the summit in Bratislava was a failure because it failed to change the immigration politics of Brussels.
Viktor Orbán, after the informal meeting of union member states, attended a news conference, where he spoke about that it is continues the “self destructive and naive” immigration politics of the Union and they talked about more about migrant quotas and the acceleration of their distribution, than stopping the migrants outside of the Schengen zone.
He believes the next opportunity to attempt any change in the EU politics is in Vienna on September 24, where the countries of the “Balkan route” are going to meet. He will suggest a correction of the existing failing migration politics there, but he is not sure it will achieve any success.Hungary can do one thing: have a successful referendum to support our efforts to change the immigration politics of Brussels.
Viktor Orbán at the same time stated it is a success that the EU countries agreed, Bulgaria must receive financial help. They made concrete headways about the assistance, which is good news as the costs of defense is significant and the pressure continues to increase on their southern border.The Prime Minister expressed that the best news of the summit was: the V4 group (Visegrad Four: Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary) were the only countries, that brought concrete suggestions how to reform the EU, what should happen and explored how to make nation level cooperation more successful while keeping it voluntary with less friction. It shows – he explained – the meeting between the V4 Prime Ministers was very successful.
He stated the members of the summit accepted a schedule which shows the main stages of the process which will crystalise in a document next year in Rome and will end the self-evaluation process after BREXIT. In this document the V4 will represent a strong and clear opinion – he added.
According to Viktor Orbán, Germany and Greece are the two key countries which are crucial to solving the present crisis. Until Germany does not have an upper limit for accepting migrants, it will continue to draw masses there. Greece should finally show its compliance with the Schengen rules and stop all the illegals entering Europe. Until these two countries change their politics, we can only do one thing: continue to work within the Schengen/Dublin regulations and stop all the illegals with the use of law and force.
The Prime Minister explained: from the Hungarian point of view, there was a more positive result of the summit. For now, the question, if anyone following the example of the Brits the answer was NO, right now all states decided to try to find answers for their problems within the framework of the EU.
He touched on: Hungary suggested new policies for non-EU member states to handle the increasing tensions in the area and to compensate for EU’s failing influence.
Viktor Orbán said: today the registration centers and camps lack of military support outside of the EU and that is why Hungary supports a unified EU Army. Multiple countries supported the notion to coordinate better between the armies of the state members.

The Prime Minister stated: solidarity has many forms in Europe and it is an oversimplified way to say: “If someone accepts a migrant, it is a show of solidarity, if someone does not, it is merciless.” We must look at who sacrifices what to make Europe more safe, how much it spends on it, what efforts they make for safety.
He thinks Hungary is one of the most compassionate countries because if it would not defend the external borders of the EU, that would cause serious problems in other countries. Hungary accepts the extra costs of that, as we defend not only ourselves, but all other nations in Europe.
The PM emphasized: For many in Brussels are not clear on the issue that the case of the migrants are not simply a humanitarian question, but there is a serious consequence about the identity of the destination countries and that applies for the ones just transit states too. Hungary wants to keep its identity!Viktor Orbán, answering a question, explained that in the summit Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel stated his government has a different opinion than Jean Asselborn, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Luxembourg, and he is not representing the official point of view of his country. Asselborn on Tuesday made a statement to the media, suggesting Hungary temporally or permanently should be excluded from the European Union because this is the only way to keep the values of the European community.
Also in an answer another question, he said that conservative political thinking means the return to our roots, the old European values we left behind and this distance is what causing our failures.
Epilogue from translator:
I did read many concerns about Hungary’s support for an EU army. With the suppression of free speech and other dictatorial manifestations in Germany and other EU states this sounds very scary and misguided. But if we think about the fact the EU and its Globalists allies already have a suppressing army called NATO, which was already employed once again a state struggled with Muslim invasion: Serbia.
So why would this army would be any different than the existing NATO? To explain this let’s go back in time a bit and look at Hungary, when Orbán’s party Fidesz first achieved a 2/3 majority, it gave them a unique opportunity to rewrite the Hungarian basic law, which was created in the 50’s and it was essentially a communist manifesto. Now the Hungarian basic law states the country’s Christian roots making the spreading of Islam against the constitution there! There are several other changes happened but you get the idea.
NATO operates on old and outdated principles which can be abused easily. A new army would have a new declaration of purpose and directives to handle its operations. If Orban and V4 succeed then it will be a defensive army against the Muslims. Of course if the other side succeeds then we will have an oppressing army (which we kind of already have: NATO).
But I agree with most people: it is dangerous game. Germany’s leaders are still very strong, the smear campaign continues against Orbán and all other V4 leaders and their countries. For now the force of darkness is still strong. All eyes are on the US elections now. It sometimes even feels like Orbán is just trying to say some things nicely and politely enough so Merkel and her gang not pounce on Hungary and decide on some military intervention to right all the wrongs which the “fascist dictator of Hungary” caused in their plans.
Also I believe – and this article proving that – the failure of the EU looks unstoppable. We will hear more conferences, summits and other meetings in the upcoming months, but this is now the end game. I am afraid a civil war is coming, which will be bloody. What will happen if USA stays under Globalists influence (Hillary) and NATO/EU soldiers will join the fight on the side of the invaders against their own population?
I feel like living in 1938 again and watching the Nazis marching with their torches, burning books and I am thinking to myself: this will not end well! I feel so helpless and angry at the same time… How dare they did this to my beloved continent and I fear for my country, my people and my family!
