‘Christianity is Europe’s last hope’ says Hungary’s nationalist Prime Minister as he calls for renewed crackdown on extremism.


The Hungarian Prime Minister has said that ‘Christianity is Europe’s last hope’ after accusing politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris of causing the ‘decline of Christian culture and the advance of Islam’.

In his annual state of the nation speech, Viktor Orban said his government will oppose efforts by the United Nations or the European Union to ‘increase migration’ around the world.

In a passionate speech, he expressed his concern that Islam would soon ‘knock on Central Europe’s door’ from both the west and the south. In his speech, he insisted that Western Europe is being overtaken by Muslims, and warned ‘Christianity is Europe’s last hope. Our worst nightmares can come true. The West falls as it fails to see Europe being overrun.’

He emphasised more; ‘Absurd as it may sound the danger we face comes from the West, from politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris,’ Orban said to loud applause. ‘Of course we will fight, and use ever stronger legal tools. The first is our ‘Stop Soros’ law.’

Orban, who is seeking a third consecutive term in Hungary’s April elections, called for a global alliance against migration.
