Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban launched another attack on billionaire investor George Soros Saturday, saying he works with European Union leaders to establish a â€œnew, mixed, Muslimized Europe.â€
Orban vowed to continue Hungaryâ€™s efforts to block Soros and the EU from increasing Muslim migration to Europe during a speech in Romania. HungaryÂ opposes immigrants â€œwho could change the countryâ€™s cultural identity,â€ Orban said, addingÂ thatÂ â€œWestern European Christians will always be able to find securityâ€ in his country.
Orban and Soros have traded barbs for several months as HungaryÂ strives to halt the billionaireâ€™s operations in the country.
The government has accused Soros of pushing for a one million migrant influx to Europe through his NGOs. Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for Orban, recently told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the war against Soros has become â€œa matter of national security.â€ (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Hungarian Govâ€™t Steps Up Fight Against Soros)
â€œTheÂ HungarianÂ standpoint is that illegal migration is clearly a matter of national security,â€ Kovacs told TheDCNF. â€œWe shall mobilize the political and legal power of theÂ HungarianÂ state against anyone who undermines the security of HungaryÂ â€“ regardless of their origins, religious affiliation or wealth.â€
EU has threatened to imposed unprecedented sanctions against Poland over reforms to itsÂ judicial system. Orban promised to defend the Poles against any legal action from the EU.
â€œThe main target of the inquisition, the example of national governance to be weakened, destroyed and broken is Poland,â€ Orban said during a televised interview Saturday, according to Reuters. â€œHungary will use every legal possibility in the European Union to be in solidarity with the Poles.â€
