Reformed pastor Loránt Hegedűs pointed out that Israel calls its aggression in Gaza self-defense, and tries to disseminate this lie through the controlled media. A significant part of the Hungarian media is complicit in this, with a few exceptions. The media manipulating the news by suggesting that the two sides are equal in strength, but this is far from the truth.
Loránt Hegedűs said it was scandalous that the religious leaders of the country remained silent in the face of this atrocity and didn't condemn the bloodshed in Gaza and calling attention to the Ten Commandments.
Gábor Vona, the chairman of Jobbik said, we gathered, here to night because we shared the planet with the victims and war criminals. Hungarians are suffering from the same assets as the Palestinian people. How many times do we have to demonstrate to end the Palestinian Holocaust asked Vona? He had a few words to the counter-demonstrators as well: Are they here because they agree with the Israeli aggression in Gaza or with Israeli citizens that dance with joy after a Palestinian child was murdered? He believes some of the scums came because of their bad conscience others because of hatred. He then, turned to the people attended the demonstration by saying everyone imagine that one of his loved ones is killed by an Israeli bomb - this is a Palestinians reality.
What kind of war is that where one party is supported by billions of dollars, and the other party is deprived even of clean water and medicines asked Vona?
The Jobbik chairman then, remarked that many people fear if Jobbik comes to power the country would be ruined because of its stance on Israel. "But I wouldn't want to be prime minister in a country where everything is measured in terms of money," he said. Vona then, raised the question: where are the churches, why don't they raise their voices against the atrocities in Gaza? Where are the Hungarian "celebs"? – abroad many well-known entertainers stood up against the Israeli aggression In Gaza.
The Hungarian political "elite" either supports the Israeli aggression, or remains silent, or makes meaningless statements on the invasion of Gaza - said Vona. He then, recalled an incident a few years ago when allegedly, someone looked angrily at Rabbi Schweitzer on the street of Budapest; then, President János Áder rushed to the Rabbi asking for forgiveness.
The Jobbik president announced that Jobbik will write a letter to the national parties of the European Union asking their views on the Israeli aggression of Gaza. Jobbik especially, would like to know the opinion of the Austrian Freedom Party and the National Front of France. Jobbik calls for boycott of Israeli goods, and will table a bill in Hungarian parliament asking the government to break all diplomatic ties with Israel until an independent Palestinian state has been created.
After the speeches, the crowd marched to the Palestinian embassy, where Palestinian ambassador to Hungary Marie Antoinette Sedin joined the protest. Fighting back tears, she thanked that so many people came to support the Palestinian cause. She said in two weeks 4,500 Israeli bombs dropped on Gaza causing eight hundred Palestinian casualties, of which seventy percent were civilians. Currently, there are 4,800 injured people treated in hospitals and 3,000 buildings have been destroyed.
People are not safe anywhere - in their homes, in mosques, in schools or even hospitals said the ambassador. Israel waging a war against the Palestinians and calling it self-defense, in the meantime call the Palestinians terrorists. Gaza is a 360 square kilometer piece of land, where 1.8 million people crowed together and surrounded by eight-meter high walls said the ambassador.
This conflict has been going on since 1948, and the world idly watching that civilians are murdered in their homes. She then, quoted the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, who said ten minutes would be enough to plot the 1967 borders, then peace negotiations could start. The Palestinians need a country where they can live in peace, only after can the conflict be resolved explained the ambassador.
After the ambassador's speech protesters placed hundreds of candles at the embassy building as sign of solidarity with the Palestinian cause.
