"Multiculturalism means the coexistence of Islam, Asian religions and Christianity. We will do everything to spare Hungary from that," he said in an interview with daily Napi Gazdasag."We welcome non-Christian investors, artists, scientists, but we don't want to mix on a mass scale."Orban, whose governing Fidesz party is losing ground in the polls to the far-right, anti-immigrant Jobbik party, has clashed with European counterparts over his isolationist views.At the European Parliament in mid-May, he criticized as "bordering on insanity" EU proposals for migrant quotas drafted in response to thousands of deaths among asylum-seekers trying to reach Europe across the Mediterranean in increasing numbers.[Multiculturalism doesn't work in Hungary, says Orban, Reuters, June 3, 2015]
Interestingly, the Reuters article features a picture not of Orban, but of a young child holding a sign saying "Let's Keep Hungary Diverse."
Of course, Hungary is not especially diverse. Orban knows once it is diverse, the problems are much harder to remove. But the real question is—why is this sign in English? Look for American and EU pressure on Hungary to continue if Orban sticks to his patriotic policies.
