The Hungarian government’s first priority is the rule of law; i.e., its obligations under the Schengen and the Dublin regulations and its responsibility to Hungarian citizens, who expect security and competence.

"To understand Hungary’s response to the migration crisis, it is important to consider its primary principles: compassion, legality and political responsibility.

The Hungarian government’s first priority is the rule of law; i.e., its obligations under the Schengen and the Dublin regulations and its responsibility to Hungarian citizens, who expect security and competence. Recent surveys that place public support for the government at 80 percent suggest that it’s fulfilling its domestic responsibility. Much the same can be said for the Hungarian government’s responsibility under Schengen and Dublin. For all that the building of the fence on the Serbian border has been criticized, these are Hungary’s obligations to its EU partners.

The mass migration of 2015 demands a deeper analysis, because the assessment adopted by many is simplistic. Neither economic considerations, nor compassion, nor the 1951 Geneva Convention offer a sufficient basis for a migrant policy. These overlook the cultural, historical and psychological experiences of the Hungarians.

The arrival of migrants involves three stages: reception, integration and then assimilation, even though this last stage is widely rejected by Western European elites who remain committed to multiculturalism."

Because they do not want to understand
If you do like Greece Hungary it would be wrong.
If neither you nor so then it would be wrong.
Mr. Ader President said that: it is at once a humanitarian, criminal and national security issues, and who forgets about any aspect of a serious political mistake.

There's no misunderstanding. Hungary isn't a democratic country anymore, but an autocracy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.. (Check out the examples of authoritarian states list)

Válaszok:

They do not misunderstand Hungary, they hate her. They hate every real collectivity.

" The Hungarian government’s first priority is the rule of law "

Absolutely good news Mr.Schöpflin !
We all know that there is no liberal democracy without the rule of law as the "first priority".

Válaszok:

For the rule of law you do not need "liberal" democracy.
Plane democracy is enough. Constitutional monarchy ditto.

Válaszok:

"plain". Sorry

Thanks for your source. It proves that you are wrong. Your comprehension of Englis is therefore dismal.

"Rule of law" in Hungarian is: "jogállam". Just like "apple" and "alma".
When you say "plane democracy is enough" you say we do not need "demokratikus jogállam".

Válaszok:

Precisely. Democracy is rule of law, for the simple reason, that the lawmakers are elected by the people for the people.

Válaszok:

Then you must have serious problems with all the western-type democracies...,among them with the present constitutional power system of our own state.

Válaszok:

Well, I don't know all of them. Some of them I know and do have some problems with them.

Válaszok:

Western-type states are all rule of law states. The rule of law makes a state power western-type.

Válaszok:

I googled your term "western-type states" and found nothing.
Congratulations for your invention made out of thin air.

Válaszok:

You should read Bibó,he will help you about what western-type state means.
