Netanyahu to Hungarian president: “worried about antisemitism in your country”
In view of the rise of the radical rightist party Jobbik, the third largest in Hungary, Prime Minister Netanyahu called on Hungarian President János Áder to vigorously combat any manifestation of antisemitism. “There is a lot of worry in Israel and in the Jewish world regarding the renewal of antisemitic phenomena in Hungary,” Netanyahu said to Áder during a meeting the two of them held in Jerusalem. “It is important to uproot these dangerous phenomena before they spread.” President Áder stressed to Netanyahu that he fervently opposes any manifestation of antisemitism.
