BUDAPEST (Reuters) - When his government lost a lawsuit in the European Court of Human Rights last week over its detention and expulsion of two migrants from Bangladesh, Hungary's rightwing prime minister blamed the usual suspect: a billionaire in New York.  "It is a collusion of human traffickers, Brussels bureaucrats and the organizations that work in Hungary financed by foreign money," Viktor Orban told public radio on Friday. "Let's call a spade a spade: George Soros finances them." Across former Communist states of east and central Europe, leaders with a hardline bent have turned their wrath in recent months against Soros, a Hungarian-American financier who funds liberal charities and non-governmental organizations worldwide through his Open Society Foundations (OSF).

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban referred to Romania in an ample interview in which he is trying to argue that billionaire George Soros is not just behind recent protests in his country, but would even feed the pro-immigrant speech in the EU. He said there are a few states that want to preserve their "Christian identity", including Romania.

In an interview with Radio Kossuth, taken over by the Hungarian Government website , Viktor Orban says it is understandable why Soros people are protesting because they are "paid". Viktor Orban declared war on George Soros: Hungary has to fight back! Orban said Soros wants to get involved in the "composition of Europe's future population," in "population restructuring," as he wants to add foreigners from other parts of the world to the EU. Among the risks he called the terrorism and the parallel existence of Muslim and Christian societies in Europe. "I think he thinks we will mix," he said. "We should not be surprised that other nations in Europe, such as the Romans, mecedons or Albanians, are moving and trying to escape these Soros networks and their local affiliates. So this is the conflict that has reached Hungary today And in its center is the issue of migration.

The only question is why it has again become a priority topic now. The answer is that the EU wants to close the debate in June and wants to force new rules on migration and immigration that will apply to everyone. Some of us resist, especially the Visegrad Group, but also the Romans . There will always be countries that want to preserve their Christian cultural identity, while others no longer want to accept that. A decisive battle takes place here, "said Viktor Orban. At the end of April, a hearing will be held in the European Parliament on the issue of Hungary's position on the issue of migrant quotas. "This battle will be the most important topic in the next two or three months. I think that this is why the atmosphere started to get stuck in Hungary," the Hungarian premier said.

MAY 17, 2017 Billionaire philanthropist Soros demonized from Hungary to the U.S., recalling old anti-Semitic conspiracies JAPAN TIMES

WARSAW – A billionaire financier and philanthropist would be a source of great pride in most nations, a person many elected officials would want to cozy up to. Not George Soros. The demonization of the American-Hungarian billionaire and Holocaust survivor has spread from Hungary and Moscow across Europe and into the United States, with the 86-year-old increasingly accused by nationalists of using his money to force his liberal values — including support for refugees — on their societies. The accusations are not limited to those on the fringes. Elected officials are attributing all manner of sins to Soros, a political strategy that seems aimed at de-legitimizing projects that Soros has supported in Central and Eastern Europe痴 transition to democracy.

This groundswell began in late 2015 as large numbers of migrants and refugees were arriving in Europe. A far-right nationalist at an anti-refugee rally in Poland set fire to an effigy of an Orthodox Jew as a crowd chanted slogans against Islam and the European Union. The man said the Jewish figure represented Soros. It wasn稚 always this way. In 2012, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski bestowed one of the country痴 highest orders on Soros, thanking him for his contributions to a nascent democratic civil society after communism. Soros’ donations have advanced human rights, the rule of law, public health, LGBT and Roma (Gypsy) rights, education and even improved transportation.

Many of the leaders turning against him now — including Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban — got scholarships from Soros in the 1990s to study in the West or received research grants. Officials today are much more likely to accuse Soros destroying their countries. Liviu Dragnea, chairman of Romania痴 ruling Social Democratic Party, claims Soros and his work 塗ave fed evil in Romania.” Krystyna Pawlowicz, a lawmaker with the ruling conservatives in Poland, called him the 杜ost dangerous man in the world” on the Catholic broadcaster Radio Maryja. She said his foundations 吐inance anti-Christian and anti-national activities.”  Soros is also hated by conservative forces in the United States, who often describe him as 兎vil” or a 堵lobalist” who manipulates societies for his own gain.
