Márton Gyöngyösi, pro-Iranian Jobbik MP attended US Intelligence, Terrorism and Cyber Security briefing

Hungarian politicians often visit Canada and the Unites States. Lately, serious questions have been raised about their activities: Do these politicians represent a security risk?

Thirty-nine year-old Mr. Márton Gyöngyösi is an MP representing Jobbik, Hungary’s neo-Nazi party, in the county’s Parliament. He is pro-Iranian and his party does not hide its contacts with Iranians. It is also long suspected that Tehran has provided financial support for Jobbik. Ms. Krisztina Morvai, Jobbik’s representative in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, met the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in 2009. She assured the Iranians: “We absolutely support prosecution of Israeli war criminals.” (Read Ms. Morvai’s statement in the Tehran Times.)

Mr. Gyöngyösi also organized a pro-Iran demonstrations at the US and Israeli Embassies in Budapest. In a speech he declared: “The Persian people and their leaders are considered pariahs in the eyes of the West, which serves Israeli interests,” … “This is why we have solidarity with the peaceful nation of Iran and turn to her with an open heart.” (Mr. Gyöngyösi’s speech with English subtitles.)

Congressman Robert Pittenger is the Chairman of the Congressional Taskforce on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare in the US House of Representatives. He hosts an annual Intelligence-Security Forum for foreign MPs. The sessions are led by former NSA Directors, House Intelligence Committee specialists, House Judiciary and Homeland Security experts. The goal of these briefings is to develop focused and effective strategies with the closest and most trusted allies of the United States.

In 2015 Hungary sent a four person, four party parliamentary delegation: Mr. András Schiffer (LMP), Mr. Gergely Gulyás (Fidesz), Mr. Tamás Harangozó (MSZP) and Mr. Márton Gyöngyösi (Jobbik). Yes, Mr. Gyögyösi represented Jobbik on an Intelligence-Security Forum to discuss intelligence, terrorism financing, and cyber security to counter Islamic extremism. (Pittenger report 2015-16.)

Needless to say, we are speechless. How did pro-Iranian Mr. Gyöngyösi get an invitation to a confidential US Security Forum? We will ask this question from Congressman Pittenger and also raise the issue with Hungary’s Ambassador to Washington, Ms. Réka Szemerkényi and the State Department. (Read here the Economist’s piece about Mr. Gyöngyösi.)

In the past we published several articles about far-right Hungarian operatives in North America and their frequent contacts with Hungary’s diplomats. We didn’t get a satisfactory explanation why accredited Hungarian diplomats embrace and support far-right activists and their local surrogates. Why did Ambassador Réka Szemerkényi brief a Jobbik delegation in Washington? Why did Consul General Mr. Ferenc Kumin receive a Jobbik delegation in New York? Why do Hungarian taxpayers support far-right events in Canada and the US?

Hungarian diplomats simply refuse to answer questions and make no effort to curtail far-right activity in North-America. In fact, they continue the usual doubletalk: willingly condemning neo-Nazis with words while supporting them with actions.

Just like the noted historian Mr. László Karsai, I consider Jobbik a neo-Nazi party. Jobbik supporters like to call themselves “radical nationalists”. They filed a lawsuit against Mr. Karsai but was unable to prevail in Hungarian courts. The western media also considers them neo-Nazis. (Read about Jobbik’s lawsuit here in Hungarian.)

In the next couple of month we’ll publish a series of articles about kuruc.info, Hungary’s decade-old, Jobbik-run neo-Nazi portal which is registered in California. We’ll take a hard look at the far-right propaganda activities of the Hungarian Government’s Kőrösi Csoma Program and of Hungarian language radio stations operating in North-America. We also plan to report about the financial activities of the Hungarian Initiatives Foundation.

Stay tuned.

  1. Hungarian diplomats simply refuse to answer questions and make no effort to curtail far-right activity in North-America.

    Not that they would have too many possibilities to do such thing, but maybe they should courtail the racism rampant on ATV – by the way, on a 1-10 list of Péter Kende on being visibly Jewish, where would you put yourself?

  2. Jonathan Pollard.

  3. Gyongyosy should be behind bars. Or, better, under a guil. M Mmkotine. I sob when I hear of these people. They will make Hungary a dying country. Help!

  4. I think Mr Lazar makes a typical thing-if you are Jew, you must support and defense the Sate of Izrael. I am Jew too in Hungary, but not support the foreign politic of Netanauh. And not forget: Obama denoted as accupation Izrael’s foreign politic against Palestines in UN. The Jobbik is a neo nazi party, OK, but there were a lot of war crimes in Palestina ib the past. Shooting an unarmed teen, ’cause he throwing rocks? Watch please the movie of Soul Exodus! I could be a Jew, without support Sate of Izrael!

    Akos Fellner a decent Hungarian Jew makes my day. I glad there are some anti-zionist jews speaking against the hatemongering, destruction, and evil propaganda which is manipulation of Jewish community caused by those Zionist and those Zionist-like minded criminals who should be put behind bars along with those scum ISIS minded terrorist whose main goal is the destruction of civilisation.
    And finally we have Akos here who does not support the state of Israel very good reasons. Because Israel is not a state but a name given to those people who descended Isaac and Jacob called Bene Israel or Bani Israil which means “family or tribe” of Israel.
    Akos, remember you are free to express what you think is right, Dont let these criminals lead you to their destruction.
    After all we are sons of Abraham.

  6. I am happy that I made you happy. So bad news, that after Netanjauh’s speech in UN the Palestinian guy’s attack in Jerusalem. This confirmes Netanjauh’ cailms about the danger of Palestinian terror. War makes only war.

  7. Kalasz Musztafa says:

    Or maybe it was mossad bribing someone with mental illness to do the dirty work as excuse for Israel to attack Palestine again. This tactic has been done many times. That’s why I Dont trust Hamas, ISIS and like-minded groups because they not fighting for real cause but for someone’s agenda. We never really know who they work for and its all because US, Israel, Qatar and Saudi Arabia been financing and training these groups. Which means its a very unreliable proxy groups.

  8. Kalasz Musztafa says:

    The other thing I like to tell you Akos is that hard line extremist like ISIS and Zionist are responsible for destruction of Holy and sacred sites in the middle east that are sacred for Judaism, Christianity and Islam, one fine example is the sacred tomb of Prophet Yunus (Jonah) was dynamited and bulldozed in Mosul. Prophet Yunus (Jonah) is the prophet that was swallowed up by a whale. Even Prophet Daniel’s tomb was destroyed but I’m not 100% sure. My point is that even Prophets, saints and other pious people’s graves and tomb are not spared from those extremist groups’s terrorism. Doesn’t matter those who present or that who are not present in this world, both of them suffers from this evil act.

  9. “Akos Fenne” dogoly mar meg! Micsoda egy Kopni vallo iszakos lehet maga! Iryon tatar-ul mert Angol-Ul nem tudd!
    Those pictures above are of typical anti Semite Hungarian barbarians – bacon fed hooligans each – and this jerk who wants to comment – my cat just used his comment as cat litter!!!

  10. Kalasz is a trouble making idiot -that is not his name and don’t even credit “Akos fenne” as a Jew – the poorest Jew is educated, intelligent “with it” – this excuse of a human being is going under false names to get on this forum- he should not be allowed again- his opinions are just that: ” every asshole has a hole” so does this jerk… if he has any Jewish background I can say this: your family didn’t suffer enough (yet)!

  11. Kalasz Musztafa says:

    George, what you mean Jewish family didnt suffer enough yet? Are you referring this to a Zionist Jews or the anti-zionist Jews?
    First of all im not a trouble making idiot, its those Hungarian-bashing zionists who write all the negative articles about Hungarians and Hungary who are the trouble makers.
    If I were to rule Hungary, I would either have them locked up, confiscate their Hungarian citizenship and Dont even let them set their foot in Hungary again, not even for a holiday. These Zionist-minded have committed enough treason and sedition on Hungary.

  12. CuriousGeorge says:

    Yes! I was a Zionist Jew born in Hungary to survivors of the Holocaust, as a student, I was taunted by the Hungarian children ( the anti Semitic feelings bred in them at their mother’s breast milk), to ” go home to Palestine”! Well, we did! And our 5,777 years old homeland is developed, sophisticated, protected by our beautiful soldiers, but most of it all by our mighty G-d!

  13. Kalasz Musztafa says:

    George, Hungarians aren’t anti-semitic, this anti-semitism is very new concept that is foreign to Hungary which has only appeared in the last century or 2 but before that there weren’t any. Yes there was anti-judaic or anti-khazaric feeling which still exist till today, but that is not anti-semitism. Anti-semitism only exist in Hungarian parties and far-right movements. The Hungarians have semitic origins because the first Magyar (Bashkir) tribe was a semitic tribe which makes sense. A DNA testing was done on the Bashkirs of Bashkiria/Bashqortostan and their genetic shows an Israelite-Scythian-Turkic descent which means they are Semitic. Secondly Magyars did intermarriage with Ottoman Turks, Kurds and Arabs who did have semitic origins. Magyars always mixed with people from the middle east. Marriage with Slavic, Germanic or other foreign people is still considered as disgrace in Hungarian tradition.
    Thirdly Dont ever mention Almighty God protecting the state of Israel when its coming down to killing innocent unarmed Palestinian, Lebanese and Syrian women and kids and teenagers. Because God does not support genocide. When the time comes, all Muslims will be united under new Ottoman Turkey and will reconquer Palestine and neither the US nor China nor even Russia will be able to stop it. Not even Saudi Arabia, you Zionist will be left with nothing, not even a support from a decent Jews.

  14. Kalasz Musztafa says:

    The other thing I want you to be aware of George is that Muslims like Turks and Arabs did intermarried with Exilarch jews who trace bloodline to Prophet King David of Israel. When the Muslims reconquer the holy land of Palestine thats when the Lost tribe of Israel will return to their home in Palestine. These lost tribes are not Jewish but Muslim Israelites.
