Omar Adam Sayfo is a PhD candidate at the University of Utrecht, and foreign affairs columnist at Hungary’s pro-Orbán Demokrata weekly. His most recent piece, published on Mandiner.hu has been translated into English for Hungarian Free Press by Christopher Adam. The article offers a glimpse into the thinking of supporters of Hungary’s Orbán government, when it comes to issues of racism, Islamophobia, liberalism and the West.

The new club’s arrogance and hatred don’t consider the fact that Hungary isn’t the only country questioning the choices of the past 25 years, but all of Central Europe is!

The walls are going up all over Europe. In Hungary, they take the physical form of razor and barbed wire fences, like much of the old iron curtain.

The like of this has never happened before. We are allowing in – indeed transporting in – hundreds of thousands of people in an unregulated manner from regions in which the European Union is at war.

On one side are politicians like Angela Merkel, Jean-Claude Juncker, Barack Obama and Pope Francis. On the other are Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orbán, Marine Le Pen, Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.

The accusations against Central Europe are both false and hypocritical. The present surge of mass migration is predominantly a result of Western power politics.

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.

This is an unendurable state of affairs. No matter what sort of humanitarian approach may be cited, it is insane to allow completely unknown individuals to wander around Europe with no real restrictions.

This is the game perfected in the Middle East. This is Pallywood, or how to manipulate a media already hungry for sensation, a media already adept at twisting the truth. Sacrificing their own misery and inhumanity, sacrificing their innocent and unguarded children, the actors in Pallywood attempt to extract as much as possible from unwitting audiences around the world. Until recently, we Europeans, we Hungarians were able to witness these bizarre scenes only on the ten o’clock news. But now its pounding at the gates. Quite literally.

The existing stereotypes about passive, home-bound, religious Muslim women will certainly undergo a fundamental transformation now.

The conclusion from the Australian experience is that those who benefit most from tough border protection are the immigrants who come here fairly and legally.

For at least half a century, the U.S. has taken in the vast majority of the world's refugees. Isn't it somebody else's turn, now?

It’s a little unfair to condemn Hungary for callous — even racist — treatment of migrants when those doing the condemning bear far more responsibility for the crisis. Yes, America, I’m talking about you.

Hungary is not explicitly a poor country. But it is a frustrated and frustrating place — with its “seen better days” culture, antiquated manias and obsessions, barely functioning bureaucracy, tepid economy and corrupt politicians.

The refugees become a prop for Viktor Orban , the Hungarian prime minister, who has a fondness for dramatic scenes.

There's often a morsel of truth in what former US Ambassador to Hungary Eleni Kounalakis says. For example, as she writes in her recent New York Times Op-Ed that on August 27th, the Austrian police did really find a freight truck on the highway to Vienna carrying 71 dead people. Sadly, this is the only point that Mrs. Kounalakis got right. Let's see, what really happened, why it happened and if it really has anything to do with Hungary or the Hungarian past.

Calling the mostly Muslim refugees a threat to Europe’s “Christian roots,” Orbán has given voice to the fears of other European conservatives too shy to say such things aloud themselves.
