Hungary anti-Semitism: MP condemned over 'list of Jews'

During a debate on the conflict in the Gaza Strip, Mr Gyongyosi, deputy group leader of Jobbik, said it was time to "assess how many MPs and government members are of Jewish origin and who presents a national security risk to Hungary".

Jobbik, an opposition party purporting to protect Hungarian values and interests, also has three MEPs in the European Parliament. The party has been linked to uniformed vigilantes who say they are safeguarding public order in areas with large Roma (Gypsy) communities.

The statement from a government spokesman on Tuesday said the government took "the strictest possible action against every form of racism and anti-Semitic behaviour" and did "everything in order to ensure that malicious voices incompatible with European norms are driven back".
