Hungary’s Orban Hosts Netanyahu, Vows to Squelch Anti-Semitism – Voice of America

| July 18, 2017

During a joint appearance Tuesday in Budapest, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban reassured Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he stands with the Jewish state against anti-Semitism. The meeting took place amid concerns that Orban’s right-wing government was stoking anti-Semitism. While standing next to Netanyahu on Tuesday, Orban sought to distance himself from comments he made last month in praise of Miklos Horthy, the Hungarian wartime leader and Hitler ally.

Peace Is Light-Years Away – Algemeiner

| July 14, 2017

If the leaders of the Palestinian Authority (PA) had invested as much time, energy and other peoples money in building a flourishing society as they do in the pursuit of death and destruction, there would be no need for outside efforts to broker peace between them and their Israeli counterparts. It takes only about 30 minutes to drive from the Muqataa compound in Ramallah to the Prime Ministers Office in Jerusalem.
