Marton Gyongyosi, deputy parliamentary leader of the radical nationalist Jobbik party, will tour nationwide to give lectures “about attacks on Jobbik and himself and the party’s foreign policy, with focus on its strong and true criticism of Israel,” Jobbik said on Friday.
Addressing Parliament last November, Gyongyosi called for a list of Jewish lawmakers and government members to be compiled, suggesting they posed a national security risk.
“Jobbik has been exposed to unprecedented attacks in Hungary and abroad … Relying on its huge lobbying and blackmailing potential, Zionism has deployed all its strength to launch a global campaign to discredit Jobbik,” the party said in a statement.
Jobbik also accused “Zionists” of creating a grand coalition of the ruling Fidesz party, the opposition Socialists, LMP and the Democratic Coalition while deploying its communication arsenal which, he said, had co-opted almost the entire media.
