Our Christian civilisation is at stake in the upcoming European parliamentary election,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said at an event presenting the election programme of his ruling Fidesz party.
The European parliamentary election will decide if the European Union has “pro-migration or anti-migration” leaders in the future, whether “Europe continues to belong to the Europeans or to masses from another civilisation; whether we can save our Christian, European culture or give up the ground for multiculturalism,” Orban said in his address.
The prime minister said that “discontent with Europe’s elite is mostly rooted in their treatment of migration”. What Europe is facing is not just a migration crisis but a migration of peoples in the historical sense, he suggested. Europe, he went on to say, could stop massive migration “but it has not even made an attempt; the European Union’s incumbent leaders support and encourage migration.”
