    European Union continues to backtrack on these internationally- binding commitments to the Jewish people made by the overwhelming majority of EU members 94 years ago The European Union (EU) has concluded an unhappy 2015 with the introduction of racist and discriminatory labelling laws for Jewish goods and products originating from Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem. EU members Hungary, Greece and the Czech Republic have rejected these laws which have also been condemned in a bipartisan resolution presented to the US Congress. The EU’s Ambassador to Israel - Lars Faaborg-Andersen - has attempted to justify these labelling laws...

    The cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, who was best known for his work on The Deer Hunter and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, has died. He was 85. His business partner Yuri Neyman confirmed that Zsigmond died on Friday in Big Sur, California. The Hungarian-born Zsigmond helped define cinema’s American New Wave in the 1970s, through celebrated collaborations and a preference for natural light. He first gained renown for his collaboration with Robert Altman on the classics McCabe & Mrs Miller and The Long Goodbye. He was nominated for four Oscars: for his work on the Vietnam War epic The Deer...

    After nearly five years of negotiations and difficult compromises, with a ready to sign agreement for settling married couples' and registered partnerships’ disputes, Poland and Hungary outraged the 26 other member states during a public meeting of the Council of justice ministers on December 3rd by refusing to back it. Almost everyone reacted extremely sharply to the two states’ decision to renounce the deal, which affects at least 17 million European citizens and which determines which judge will have jurisdiction and which law will be applicable in the settling of assets disputes between transborder married couples or registered partnerships.

    Eastern Europe is leading the way to protect the continent against colonizers from Islamic lands. Hungary is in the forefront, having erected a fence that is patrolled around the clock by Hungarian police and military. There is also support along the border from Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Slovakia as these nations partner together to protect themselves. In this video, the mayor of Assothalom (a rural town in Hungary situated along the southern border shared with Serbia) speaks about border security. And he does not mince his words. He acknowledges that all of Europe must be protected and defended or everyone...

    The action-man mayor of Hungarian frontier town Ásotthalom has invited “all active Europeans” to visit the border fence his government created, so they can learn how to protect their own countries. Praising the remarkable success of the Hungarian border fence, which reduced daily illegal migrant incursions from some 10,000 a day to 30 in just the space of a week, mayor László Toroczkai acknowledged the fence hadn’t actually solved the European migrant crisis. Instead, blocking Hungary off had just shifted the migratory stream westwards to Slovenia. This is not an insurmountable problem for mayor Toroczkai — the rest of Europe...

"The question is when they migrated to the European Union." In his office at the Hungarian parliament, the prime minister points toward the flowing Danube. In another era, an aide notes, the Turks followed this river into the heart of Europe. Behind Orbán hang two maps: One shows a short stretch of Hungary's border with Croatia and another gives a panoramic view of the Balkans toward Turkey, from where hundreds of thousands of migrants...

What he got instead was a striking image of a meteor streaking across the sky. Komka set up his camera gear on an equatorial mounted tripod near the medieval castle of Salg, and took several long exposure shot of the night sky, hoping to get some good enough image of the 2015 TB145 asteroid. Sadly the spooky space rock was too faint and did not appear in his photos. But what he finally captured in one photo...

    Hungarian PM Viktor Orban isn’t exactly pro-migrant. In fact, he’s gone out of his way to let Europe know that when it comes to accommodating the hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers fleeing the war-torn Mid-East, Budapest isn’t interested. Here's what happened when refugees dared to test Orban's resolve when it comes to defending the country's newly constructed, razor wire anti-migrant fence: As we’ve documented extensively, Hungary’s move to close off its borders with Croatia and Serbia has triggered a veritable Balkan border battle wherein no one can quite figure out the best way to divert hundreds of thousands of...

The new border fences, which closed off Hungary from Serbia in September and continued around the border, finally cutting the country off from unwanted incursions from Croatia earlier this month have been so successful the number of illegal migrants has dropped off the charts. While last month up to 10,000 migrants a day illegally crossed into Hungary, now border controls have been fully implemented, that number has fallen to dozens per day.

Austria on Wednesday said it plans to build a fence at its main crossing with Slovenia, the first such barrier between two members of Europe’s document-free travel area, in one of the clearest signs to date of how Europe’s migrant crisis is undermining Europe’s institutions and sowing discord across the bloc.

Migrants who manage to squeeze through holes cut in a barbed-wire border fence and walk north eventually have to cross Route 55 where Hungarian police are ready for them. Backed by agents from Frontex, the European Union's border control agency, the cops stop dozens of migrants and refugees as they emerge from the forest. They point guns and shine bright lights into the faces of frightened Iraqis and Syrians. The refugees, mostly men, are instructed to sit cross-legged in the grass, at...

Two police officers and four migrants suffered minor injuries during scuffles, local authorities of the Pas-de-Calais region said. Around 100 of the migrants managed to walk as far as 15 kilometres into the Channel Tunnel during the mass break-in before police intervened to stop them getting any further.
