Russian writer at Bloomberg: Hungarians are xenophobic and old
Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2018

And, according to Leonid Bershidsky writing at Bloomberg, they better get with it because they will demographically die if they don’t admit young Muslim migrant workers.

That is the gist of a too long opinion piece at Bloomberg. I’ve snipped just a bit of the article entitled:

Hungary Is Winning Its War on Muslim Immigrants


Is Hungarian Zoltan Kovacs “xenophobic” or a realistic observer of the present and past!


Orban’s Hungary… fiercely against a certain kind of immigrant.

“We’ve been living next to Islam and with Islam for 500 years and we know it’s not going to integrate,” government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs told me in an interview this week. “We treat it as a civilizational problem.”
According to Kovacs, Muslim immigrants create “parallel societies” in the European countries that receive them, and Hungarians want none of that. Indeed — though it may be the result of relentless government propaganda — according to a 2016 Pew Research study, 72 percent of Hungarians have a negative view of Muslims in their country, compared with the EU average of 43 percent.

Sounding exasperated Bloomberg writer Bershidsky opines as he wraps up with this:

The best other European countries can do is demonstrate that Muslim immigrants can be successfully integrated to society’s benefit. It’s a long game, but if it goes well, hard evidence will eventually convince those who don’t understand yet that, unaided, Europe’s aging demographics are unsustainable.

And, my response: what if Muslim integration doesn’t go well elsewhere in Europe (it doesn’t show promise now!)? It is a big IF!

And, frankly given a choice of dying via an aging proud Hungarian population and dying by becoming a Muslim/Sharia dominant country, I would take the former over the latter. Wouldn’t you!

Read it all here (if you feel like it!).

They're also over here. At least with Brexit, we'll be able to offload them and empty our jails.
