    A huge explosion has rocked the centre of the Hungarian capital Budapest sparking fears of a terror attack. At least two people are believed to have been injured with a large police presence at the city's Oktogon intersection. Reports say the blast may have been caused by a gas leak, but this has not officially been confirmed. Footage from the scene shows a queue of police cars rushing down the street with terrified people running in the other direction. Cops have cordoned off a large area around a shop at the corner of Kiraly Utca (King Street) and buildings have...

    Sweden’s embassy in Budapest has sharply rebuked Hungary after an official leaflet claimed that Stockholm and other European cities had become “no-go areas”. Flyers warning of “hundreds of no-go areas in European cities”, which highlighted Stockholm along with London, Brussels, Marseille, Berlin and the Copenhagen-Malmö area, were this month sent to millions of households in Hungary ahead of its referendum next month on EU refugee quotas, reports the Financial Times. The leaflets claimed that migrants have overrun hundreds of “no-go” areas in Europe which “the authorities cannot keep under control” and where “the norms of the host society (…) barely...

    Hungarian prison inmates are ramping up their production of razor wire, working around the clock as Hungary prepares to build a second fence on the border with Serbia to keep out refugees and other migrants. The razor wire manufacturing at the prison in Marianosztra, northern Hungary, has increased from two shifts earlier this year, to three. Besides its domestic use, Hungary has also sold or donated fence elements, including wire and steel posts, to other countries in the region, including Slovenia and Macedonia. "The inmates are manufacturing razor wire in three shifts a day, with 13 inmates in each shift...

    Hungary’s prime minister has called for the EU to “round up” illegal immigrants and deport them to guarded camps “on an island or North Africa.” The comments are likely to further inflame tensions with other EU governments who say Budapest’s ultra-hard line on migration flouts both international law and fundamental European values. Viktor Orban made the comments as he lashed out at Angela Merkel’s refugee policy, saying it was unfair for Berlin to try to distribute migrants across EU member states. This could be an island, it could be a coastal area in North Africa, but the security and supplies...

    Austria has begun laying a base on which a fence could quickly be erected along a 1.2 mile stretch of its border with Hungary, next to the crossing that hundreds of thousands of migrants used during a wave of arrivals a year ago. The preparations, which involve burying vertical pipes in the ground into which fence poles can be inserted, began on Monday, but a decision whether to put up a fence has not yet been reached, a police spokesman said. The fence near the crossing in the town of Nickelsdorf would be erected if Austria decides to activate tough...

    Hungary should be excluded from the European Union for anti-migrant policies that undermine EU values, including erecting a razor-wire fence, Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said, provoking a scornful riposte from Budapest. The unusually strong attack came three days before a crucial summit intended to project the bloc's unity after Britain's shock decision to leave. "We cannot accept that the basic values of the European Union are being so seriously breached," Asselborn told German daily Die Welt in comments published on Tuesday.

    Hungary plans to build a second fence on its southern border with Serbia that would enable it to keep out any major new wave of migrants, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday. Orban said the new barrier, to be built alongside the existing one, would strengthen defenses to respond if Turkey's policy on migration changed. If that happened, hundreds of thousands could appear at Hungary's border, he told public radio. "Technical planning is under way to erect a more massive defense system next to the existing line of defense which was built quickly (last year)," Orban said. Orban...

According to Hauser, there are hundreds of reports that these kinds of terrorist cells have infiltrated European countries, and “irrefutable evidence that there is an IS command structure in place” that will “likely” launch a coordinated attack on Germany. It appears ISIS took advantage of Europe’s generosity by concealing its fighters in the mass of people desperately seeking a new home. If this...

Speaking at a summer university in Baile Tusnad, Romania, the Hungarian leader tied increased security threats to increased migration and cited Trump's proposals at the Republican National Convention to combat terrorism. Orban is one of Europe's most outspoken politicians and has in the past upset fellow members of the European Union over policy.

Since July 5, migrants caught within 8 kilometers (5 miles) of the Hungarian border are being returned to the Serbian side of the razor-wire fence built by Hungary last year to stem the migrant flow. Police said 621 people were sent back to Serbia since the new rules took effect. One of the claims of abuse noted in the HRW report said men in a group of...

Respondents in Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Greece, and the United Kingdom all responded that they believe incoming refugees increase the risk of terrorism. Respondents in Hungary are most likely (at 76 percent) to believe incoming refugees increase the risk of terrorism, while respondents in Spain are the least likely to believe incoming refugees increase the likelihood of terrorism (at 40...

Although concern for the future of the EU may seem like hyperbole, nearly every member state has a political contingent in favor of leaving the union, and the successful Brexit vote may have just politically legitimized — and energized — those movements.

    It has mystified historians ever since. After a string of major victories, the Mongol army suddenly retreated from central Europe in 1242. Some scholars claim Mongolian politics forced the withdrawal, while others credit the strength of fortified towns in present-day Hungary and Croatia. But Europe could have been rescued by its own bad weather, an analysis of tree rings and historical documents concludes. The Mongol cavalry fed its horses on the grass of the Eurasian steppe, says Nicola Di Cosmo of Princeton University, one of the study’s authors. A warm climate in the early 1200s helped make the grasslands lush...

When the daily illegal border crossings were at 7,000 per day, Prime Minister Viktor Orban decided to erect a fence along the border to Serbia and Croatia. The result speaks for itself: When the fence went up Oct. 17, the influx went down to 870 from 6,353 only a day earlier. Illegal border crossing were steadily below 40 per day throughout the...

    Turkey is under growing pressure to consider a major escalation in migrant deportations from Greece, a top European Union official said Thursday, amid preparations for a highly anticipated summit of EU and Turkish leaders next week. European Council President Donald Tusk ended a six-nation tour of migration crisis countries in Turkey, where 850,000 migrants and refugees left last year for Greek islands. [...] Tusk was careful to single out illegal economic migrants for possible deportation, not asylum-seekers. And he wasn't clear who would actually carry out the expulsions: Greece itself, EU border agency Frontex or even other organizations like NATO....

    If we learned anything last September it's that Janet Yellen's reaction function now includes domestic and global financial markets. Well that, and we learned that Hungarian PM Viktor Orban isn't playing around when it comes to Europe's worsening refugee crisis. While everyone else in Europe was busy trying to figure out how to accommodate the millions of asylum seekers fleeing the war-torn Mid-East, Orban simply built a razor wire border fence. And then he built another one. And then, when migrants tried to breach his barriers, he met them with water cannons and tear gas. This was the scene: "Problem"...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel Tuesday criticized an eastern European proposal to close the Balkans refugee route and vowed to push for a plan with Turkey to reduce the influx, at an EU summit. Merkel, under heavy pressure at home to reduce arrivals, supports a plan under which transit country Turkey would seal its borders and then fly refugees to Europe where they would be settled under an EU quota system. However, most countries in the European Union have shown little enthusiasm for the idea, and the so-called Visegrad Four - Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary - have openly...

    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...

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. Unanimity...

    Even though French right lost Sunday, a counterrevolution is growing in Europe and America Right-wing, national-conservative parties are seeing stunning success and growth as Europeans become disillusioned with the politically correct, globalization-backing, pro-immigration and pro-EU European Establishment. The Front National in France, led by Marine Le Pen, dominated the first round of voting in the country's Dec. 6 regional elections, polling first in six of 13 regions and taking 27.96 percent of the vote. The party has seen its popularity skyrocket in the past few years, but during a second round Sunday it failed to win any region as moderate,...

    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...
