Hungary opens office for the persecuted Christians from the Middle East

707

Hungary has become the first ever country in the world to open an office in order to specifically address the burning matter of persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Europe. This unparalleled move was explained by Hungary’s Minister for Human Resources, Zoltan Balog as Hungary “has become the first government to open an office specifically to address the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Europe.”

Hungarian Minister Balog also said: “Our interest not only lies in the Middle East but in forms of discrimination and persecution of Christians all over the world. It is therefore to be expected that we will keep a vigilant eye on the more subtle forms of persecutions within European borders.”

This move was heralded by Hungary’s right-wing Premier Victor Orban’s effort to highlight the issue in the European Union maintaining that Europe must be focusing on succoring Christians ahead of other refugees as millions of Muslims are pouring into Europe.

“If we really want to help, we should help where the real problem is.… We should first help the Christian people before Islamic people,” said Hungary’s Prime Minister. He further questioned do Western governments “really want to help” those suffering true persecution? For if they did, not only would taking in “Christian people before Islamic people” be the most humane thing to do; it would also benefit Western nations as well.
