Anti-Semitic Hungarian Party Could Win Big. Christians Ask for Help


A Hungarian political party widely viewed as fascist and anti-Semitic could finish second in national elections on April 6.

“Jobbik, the Movement for a Better Hungary,” is already the third largest political party in Hungary and a second place finish behind ruling party Fidesz in less than three weeks could vault Jobbik into a coalition government.

According to the Hungarian political site, Politics.Hu, support for Jobbik among Hungarian voters has risen to 16 percent.

While Jobbik describes itself as "a principled, conservative and radically patriotic Christian party," it has been labeled as fascist, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and anti-Roma by journalists, scholars and political figures in Hungary.

Jobbik also dislikes evangelicals who support Israel. Hungary’s largest evangelical church has launched a Hungarian Facebook page called Vote Against Jobbik.

 

Vote Against Jobbik

    Go to Vote Against Jobbik and like the page to help support the push against the anti-Semitic, anti-Evangelical party in Hungary.

 

Rev. Sandor Nemeth, the pastor of Faith Church in Budpaest, which has 60,000 attendees, calls the April 6 election “a crucial day,” because Nemeth says Jobbik views “Jews and the pro-Israel, Evangelical Christian community as their top enemies.”

He said Hungary’s Christians “need the help and support of all our friends and sisters and brothers in Christ.”

Pastor Nemeth is calling for an outpouring of “likes” on their Facebook page from everyone who supports tolerance and freedom, and especially from Christians and supporters of Israel, to show strong opposition to Jobbik.

Psalm 83 is being fulfilled. O God, Do not keep silent; See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. "Come, they say, "let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more." With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you...the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab, and the Hagrites, Gebel, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot. Make them like Tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind...... The Most High will deal with the enemies of Israel.

Get the Christians and Jews out to vote.Get them praying for their country. We will join them in prayer, but don't look to our government for help.

David, it may come as quite a surprise to you but the Jews are not particularly popular in many parts of the world, not only Hungary. It may come as a great surprise to you to learn that their is a great Anti-Sematic movement in New York City. World wide Anti-Semitic movements are neither unique nor unusual.
