Hungary's far-right Jobbik party holds anti-Jewish rally in Budapest (PHOTOS)

The Jobbik party are protesting against Budapest's hosting of the World Jewish Congress.

Hungary's far-right Jobbik party drew around 1,000 supporters to an anti-Jewish rally in Budapest Saturday, ahead of the World Jewish Congress meeting in the capital. 

The party — which regularly issues anti-Semitic statements — is the third biggest in Hungary, holding 43 seats in the 386-member parliament. 

Jobbik and their supporters claim that Hungary is being "bought up" by the Jews.

"The Israeli conquerors, these investors, should look for another country in the world for themselves because Hungary is not for sale," Jobbik chairman Gabor Vona told the crowd, which gathered near the parliament, Reuters reported

"Our country has become subjugated to Zionism, it has become a target of colonization while we, the indigenous people, can play only the role of extras," Jobbik parliament member Marton Gyongyosi said. 

Leaders at the rally also led prayers for the end of Zionism, and called on any of Hungary's public servants with dual Israeli citizenship to resign.

The protest took place despite an attempt by police to ban it; the motion was struck down by a Budapest court. 

"It was a very upsetting experience to see so many people there and to hear the speeches," said Michael Thaidigsmann, a congress spokesman who was at the rally Saturday.  

He called the protesters were "fanatics" who "do not represent mainstream Hungary."

The World Jewish Congress chose to hold their annual meeting in Hungary this year to demonstrate support for the Jewish community in Hungary, one of the largest in Central Europe, as well as to bring attention to the rising wave anti-Semitic movement on the continent, according to the Wall Street Journal

Truth telling about the khazars WHO ARE NOT JEWEISH, THEY ARE PAGANS, has always been called "Anti-semitism" which they encourage, just read the protocols where they encourage its use to advance their agenda against us horrible goyim, and yet, the zionists are the biggest anti-semites on the planet. They hate semites as evidenced by the video showing the khazars beating up on real Jewish people who are peacefully protesting in Israel. Real Jews have had to seek asylum in London and New York since its not safe for them to be in Israel anymore. The Zionist khazars are pagans and Luciferians and that is why we are seeing their satanism being spread across the planet and the pedophiling of children. THIS IS #5 OF THE DISINFO PROTOCOLS THEY DRAFTED TO NOT ADDRESS THE ISSUES, BUT TO NAME CALL, ESPECIALLY THE USE OF "ANTI-SEMITISM" ABOUT THE MESSANGER AND TAKE THE ATTENTION OFF WHAT THE ISSUE IS. THEY ARE SO BUSTED. The entire globe now knows what we did not know 20 years ago. TOO LATE, IT DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE. GOOD FOR HUNGARY FOR HAVING THE COURAGE TO STEP UP AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT.
