Hungary fence

Border protection and security cannot be assigned to those who would be happy to tear down the border fence, the state secretary of the Cabinet Office said on Sunday.

Hungary has not insisted on protecting its borders for centuries to give this right up now at a negotiating table to those who do not consider this very important, Csaba Dömötör told public radio.

The politician said

the Salzburg EU summit had shown that border protection has become the new focus of the debate on migration.

He said a proposal had been presented at the meeting “with the aim that member states should give up their right to border protection” and assign it to Brussels and Frontex, the EU’s border and coast guard agency.

“This is unacceptable to the government for several reasons,” he said. Partly because Hungary is able to protect its borders, and partly because many politicians in Brussels do not actually want to protect the borders but support migration, he insisted.

Dömötör reiterated the government’s position that if a member state believes it cannot protect its borders, that country should be offered assistance. But the right to border protection must not be taken away from member states who are capable of doing this themselves, he said.

The state secretary said there were other Brussels-backed plans as well behind the proposal on border protection that he said would support migration rather than stop it. He said one of these was “taking away our right to decide who is a refugee and who is an economic migrant”.

  1. The red-green city council of Vienna refuses to place a monument for the Polish king Jan Sobieski III, who as the leader of Christian armies in 1683 had crushed the Turks at the gates of Vienna. This symbol would supposedly disturb the understanding between cultures. Hungary, which opened its borders to the West as the first communist country in 1989, is much worse off with the EU procedure for violations of democracy. Poland should come next. The EU ship sinks, the escalation continues. Will the most prominent opponents of Brussels soon write another chapter of European history? The year 1683 is considered the end of the Ottoman expansion in Europe that started in the Balkans before the conquest of Constantinople (1453). Poland-Lithuania and Austria-Hungary had been able to prevent the Islamic advance on the old continent in numerous wars before that. From the 18th century, Russia then appeared on the scene and contributed to the final expulsion of the Turks – apart from the Islamic enclave of Istanbul – from Europe. The Bulgarians owe their independence to the Russian Tsar Alexander II, who liberated them from the Ottomans in 1877. This fundamental knowledge is not known to all political suckers. The western multiculties ignore the contribution of Eastern Europe in the fight against aggressive Islam and try to dismiss it as abstract empire competition. The crusades are quickly used as a counter argument or the fable of the so-called Orbán dream of a Greater Hungary. Also Poland (1956, 1970, 1980) and Hungarians (1956) have contributed decisively to the fall of communism through multiple bloody national uprisings. Even before Glasnost and Perestrojka took root in the Soviet Union (1985), the Polish Solidarność movement was already fighting the military dictatorship of Jaruzelski. Perhaps without this bloody sacrifice the old GDR would still exist in which a certain Angela Merkel Sauer would lead an insignificant existence. Millions of people remember the dramatic television images of the flight of the East Germans via Hungary to Austria in 1989. Thereafter the events followed each other at a rapid pace: the fall of the Berlin Wall, German reunification, the demise of the Soviet empire without a shot was fired. The battle slogan “We are the people!” Now heard in the German streets is still coming from this time. Who actually knows that everything started at the Hungarian border fence? Whoever believes that history repeats will recognize two parallels with the past. Poland and Hungary have put themselves in combat mode regardless of their basic positioning towards Russia. This time against the mighty Brussels and its brutal migration dictation. The courageous Visegrád countries receive populist support from the Balten, the Western Balkans and recently from Austria and the EU heavyweight Italy. Against this neither the NGO billions of Soros, nor defamation, nor artificial mass protests from the decent or threats of withdrawing EU money. The opponents, unlike the current ones (Greece, Bulgaria, Romania) and future EU lightweights (Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo), do not expect to sell their sovereignty for a few billion euros and are consistently opposed to the attacks. Not in the least because the strong governments know that the majority of the people are behind them. In an escalation with Brussels, at the end of which the exit from the EU paradise would be, Polexit and Hexit, Poland and Hungary would hardly have any economic disadvantages to fear. European concerns do not want to lose outlets to China and would put strong pressure on Brussels. On the contrary, the demonstrated impotence of the EU, of which not only the strong British say goodbye, could provide new candidates. Just like the domino effect in the Eastern Bloc in 1989.
    At present, the time for a political-economic turnaround in Europe is favorable. The change of power would hardly disturb the big brother from Washington, who is currently thinking about his relationship with the old continent and threatening a trade war with China (probably?). If this reversal would occur, then Budapest would have to become the seat of the European Parliament instead of Brussels, and then the European Court of Justice would no longer have to sit in Strasbourg, but in Warsaw.
    Another final word: alleged crises often turn out to be chances afterwards – not only the people at the fair know that. What sounds utopian may soon become reality – just think of the case of Soviet Communist armed to the teeth.
