We have said a number of times before, we condemn the killing of people regardless of who committed the crime. Everyone is entitled to remember his losses. But we do not want double standards! We reject to be called guilty nation! We reject every attempt to use the issue of the Holocaust to whitewash Israel's foreign policy.
The Holocaust is the greatest national trauma for Hungarians said János Martonyi, Minister of Foreign Affairs at the conference organized by the Tom Lantos Institute on antisemitism and on Jewish life in Europe, in Budapest on Wednesday.
We have to be prepared because in the upcoming national election campaign and in the next year's Holocaust commemorative year the topic of the Holocaust will even more frequently be on the agenda as a campaign theme as before. Unfortunately, the upcoming events are not designed to be peaceful memorials, but to win political gains and to hammer the guilty nation mantra. Therefore, I ask everyone who is intelligent enough to see through of these schemes to be careful, cautious, and recognize the provocative intent behind these events, and don't give in to provocations. Do not give ammunition to those who have been attacking patriotic Hungarians from day one.
We have said a number of times before, we condemn the killing of people regardless of who committed the crime. Everyone is entitled to remember his losses. But we do not want double standards! We reject to be called guilty nation! We reject every attempt to use the issue of the Holocaust to whitewash Israel's foreign policy. We refuse to cooperate with those who have blood on their hands and in the business of destroying other nations and want to lecture us on humanity and compassion. We reject the idea to make Israeli political and economic colonization of our country a taboo topic. We reject any attempt to highlight the tragedy of the Holocaust thus suggesting that it was the only and the biggest tragedy of our nation!
We also want to remember and will remember of our losses: the Trianon tragedy, Hungary's World War II Christian, civilian and military casualties, the suppression of the 1956 revolution, the atrocities committed under communism and the half a million Hungarians that left the country in the past 24 years. We are going to remember with dignity, quietly without provoking anyone. Because we don't want to rule anyone, only remember. Our goal is to build a better future, and not to harm anyone; what we want is a better life for ourselves.
