Hungary pledges to crack down on antisemitism

    The deputy prime minister of Hungary, Tibor Navarcsics, has promised that his country will no longer tolerate antisemitism.

    Hungary has one of the largest and oldest Jewish communities in Europe but has seen a steady rise in antisemitic incidents.

    This year, the world Jewish Congress asked Hungary to do more to combat the problem.

    Mr Navarcsics said on Tuesday at a conference on European antisemitism: "We cannot allow, especially knowing our own responsibility, antisemitism to gain strength in Hungary."

    The deputy prime minister added: "We will crack down with legal means if necessary and, where we can, make sure through political means, that Hungary remains a republic of good men."

    In Hungary’s most recent recorded case of antisemitism, bars of soap were nailed to the fence of the main synagogue in Szeged, on September 17.

    The far-right Jobbik party regularly vilifies Jews and Israel, and holds 43 out of 386 seats in parliament.
