The inauguration ceremony of the German Occupation Monument has been canceled

Monday, July 21, 2014

Responding to a question Minister of Prime Minister's Office János Lázár confirmed that taking into account the social debates of the last few weeks and the grief of the complainers based on misunderstanding the government has decided to cancel the inauguration ceremony of the Freedom Square monument in Budapest.

Lázár also remarked that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is expected to make an official statement regarding the monument later on Monday in which he outlines his position on the matter.

Lázár stressed that the purpose of the monument is to clearly engrave in stone and clarify to present and the future generations that "the deportation of Hungarian Jews - the Hungarian Holocaust - would not have happened without the German occupation."

However, there are other problems with the monument. Rabbi Zoltán Radnóti pointed out in his blog that mistake was made in the Hebrew inscription engraved in the memorial. In Hebrew, several terms are used to describe victims. In the inscription the wrong term was used, which referring to sacrificial animals.

Hebrew-speakers understand what the term refers to, but this term never used when referring to victims of the Holocaust because in Hebrew there is a separate term for Holocaust victims wrote the Rabbi on his blog.

Regarding the linguistic error Lázár noted that the nature of the error will be carefully examined and if it turns out that indeed a mistake was made we will ask for forgiveness and remedy the error.

I think we can be pretty sure that the government has been alerted to some planned evil event, should the inauguration happen. It cannot have been cowered by the handful of 'protestors' who have been littering Szabadság tér with their fusty old persons and vulgar notices. I wonder if we must now expect the destruction by vandals of this beautiful monument.

I've heard that too. A major provocation was planned by the usual suspects that's why the inauguration ceremony was canceled. The cancellation prevented these assets from launching an international media campaign against the government and open yet another front in the war on the nation.

Dear HungarianAmbiance,

Thank goodness for you! Big virtual hug.

Cowards... what was the point of this whole fiasco if you don't do a proper unveiling of it? Just defeated the whole purpose of the exercise and erased any meaning. A major provocation by whom? Senior citizen pensioners with canes and walkers?

'A major provocation by whom? Senior citizen pensioners with canes and walkers?'

Quite obviously not. Do you recall the foiled plan to launch a malicious international media attack on Hungary in the (faked) matter of having to evacuate Gipsies from Gyöngyöspata because they were in fear of their lives from the Magyar Gárda? Fidesz and Jobbik got wind of that, and a number of their members turned up in Gyöngyöspata. The place was bristling with international (anglosphere) journalists. This nasty attempted anti-Hungarian operation was soon tied to Richard Field ('businessman' then living in Hungary) and the LMP people.

Field was said to have financed the fake evacuation business. But nobody knew a thing about him. It soon transpired that he had some sort of real-estate business in Hungary, but it was much less than a successful enterprise. So where did he find the means to finance the LMP's birth and the fake evacuation? Since then, it has become public knowledge that Field is a front-man for George Soros.

Is the penny beginning to drop for you about who the (again foiled) provocateurs are likely to be in the present case? To nudge you a bit further: Who is the minuscule ethnic minority who took exception to the occupation German monument? And what is the self-interest this group sees this monument threatening? And how far do you think this minority is prepared to go protect that interest?

A further point: The better case would have been another false-flag operation like the one attempted at Gyöngyöspata. But the possibility also arises of something worse, like an assassination threat, or some sort of crowd-targeting violence.

And a final point: Fidesz did not baulk at the reconstruction of the István Tisza monument, nor at its unveiling ceremony, despite the vehement hatred of the said minority for this great man. So you can forget 'coward's'.
