BUDAPEST, Hungary (ChurchMilitant.com) - Hungarians are making their voice heard over what Prime Minister Viktor Orbán terms the "Soros Plan" for mass migration, a program drawn up by atheist billionaire and open borders advocate George Soros.
In October, Orbán's government launched a "National Consultation," a country-wide survey to gauge public opinion of its steadfast resistance to the European Union's migrant quota scheme, according to which members of the bloc must admit an ongoing stream of tens of thousands of Muslim migrants from the Middle East and North Africa.
The results are now in. The people of Hungary overwhelmingly reject the "Soros Plan."
In September 2015, Soros laid out the blueprint for this program, writing the European Union "has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future. And, to do that, it must share the burden fairly."
To finance the scheme, globalist financier proposed the European Union borrow money to provide €15,000 (or $16,800 in 2015 dollars) "per asylum-seeker for each of the first two years to help cover housing, health-care and education costs."
Since then, Soros has lavished $18 billion on what Orbán describes as "bogus civil society organizations" to implement his vision.
But Hungarians are having none of it.
Some 2.3 million responded to the National Consultation; overwhelmingly, they rejected mass migration into the country.
Addressing the results, Bence Tuzson, Minister of State for Government Communication, observed, "The participants of the National Consultation ... said no to the fact that Hungary's language and culture should change and lose significance. In addition to which they also did not accept the fact that countries that reject the 'Soros Plan' should pay some kind of fine," he added, referring to punitive measures against Hungary and its like-minded Central European allies being drawn up at E.U. headquarters in Brussels.
Tuzson said the results of the National Consultation would reinforce the government's determination to "fight to ensure that the opinion of the Hungarian people is enforced in both Europe and Hungary" and to make certain "the Soros Plan is not realized in any form."
On Tuesday, the Hungarian Parliament rejected the European Parliament's (EP) drive to implement a "limitless and permanent" migrant quota.
Hailing the move, afterward, Zoltán Kovács, undersecretary for public diplomacy and relations, published an essay blasting the EP for pushing ever-expanding quota parameters, noting "the decision would change irreversibly the continent's future."
Kovács reminded readers that in 2015, the European Commission, the bloc's main executive body, proposed resettling 40,000 migrants, distributing them proportionally among E.U. member states.
"That number quickly tripled, jumping to 120,000," he recalled, "but all the while, the proponents of this solution were insisting that it was just a one-time measure."
Now, the government spokesman pointed out, "Brussels is ... pushing forward with a proposal for a permanent quota system with no upper limit."
Additionally, Kovács observed:
The Hungarian Parliament, on the other hand, acting in line with the results of the latest national consultation, adopted today with a resounding majority a resolution that rejects the EP's regulation on the grounds that a mandatory quota system would change irreversibly the continent's future and culture. It also calls upon the government of Hungary to protect the country's interests against the European Parliament and E.U. bureaucrats. The European Union must respect Hungary's sovereignty and the will of its people.
"Over the last two years," the undersecretary added, "we've seen 27 terrorist attacks in Europe, claiming the lives of 330 people and injuring 1,300 others. It simply defies reason and common sense to insist on a permanent, limitless quota system without taking security into account."
In July, Prime Minister Orbán warned of a deliberate plan to de-Christianize Europe and transform it into a "mixed, Islamicized" society:
We are observing the conscious, step-by-step implementation of this policy. In order for this to happen, for the territory to be ready to be handed over, it is necessary to continue the de-Christianisation of Europe — and we can see these attempts. Priority must be given to group identities rather than national identities, and political governance must be replaced with the rule of bureaucracy. This is the aim of Brussels' continuous and stealthy withdrawal of powers from the nation states. This is the situation in Europe today.
During his address, Orbán drew a line between European norms, rooted in Christianity and those of the Islamic world. "It's obvious that the culture of migrants contrasts dramatically with European culture," he observed, and "Muslim communities coming to Europe see their own culture, their own faith, their own lifestyles and their own principles as stronger and more valuable than ours."
"Opposing ideologies and values cannot be simultaneously upheld, as they are mutually exclusive," the prime minister noted.
