Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is seen reading The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray on Facebook.
“If we do not clearly state what is happening to Hungary and why it is happening, then no one will understand. And if we do not understand it, then we cannot make a sound decision three weeks from now,”
Orban writes, referring to the upcoming elections.
Douglas Murray’s book “is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth-rates, mass immigration and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive change as a society”, the book’s profile page says on Amazon. “It includes reporting from across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who appear to welcome them into the places which cannot accept them”.
The Strange Death of Europe has just been published in Hungarian too. The fight against illegal migration is the central topic of Orban’s campaign ahead of the parliamentary elections in April, the prime minister warned of the consequences of immigration – parallel societies, crime, terrorism – on numerous occasions.
Speaking at the state ceremony on Hungary’s national holiday on Thursday, Orban said:
“Day by day we see the great European countries and nations losing their countries: little by little, from district to district and from city to city. The situation is that those who do not halt immigration at their borders are lost: slowly but surely they are consumed”.
