During a United Nations conference on counter-terrorism in Vienna, Austria, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó named the large migration strategy championed by the UN a “serious threat” to mankind. The foreign minister (shown here in another UN venue) noticed that the UN should spend more of its money on preventing global terrorism and move resources from its mass migration techniques to do so.
“We are calling on the UN to include the fight against terrorism in its budget, to spend more on the global fight against terrorism and less on migration, for the benefit of all the world’s citizens,” Szijjártó reported.
While nobody should actually desire the UN to adopt any part in the global combat against terrorism (or another type regarding the use of force), Szijjártó constitutes an excellent point. With its existing migration program, the UN Global Compact for Migration, the UN is exacerbating the problem that its counter-terrorism discussion professes to deal with by working to, fundamentally, legalize illegitimate immigration, albeit in non-binding form.
Szijjártó aimed this out himself in 2018: “The goal of the UN Global Compact for Migration is to legalize illegal immigration, which is totally unacceptable and violates the sovereignty of member states, including that of Hungary.”
When the compact was ratified in December of 2018, just five nations — the United States, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Israel — voted against it. Twelve nations, including Australia and Italy, abstained.
Szijjártó proceeded to indicate the connection between mass migration and at the very least 30 different terror strikes ever since the 2015 migrant emergency in Europe. The Hungarian Foreign Minister organized various methods, which he feels would reestablish European safety. Those ways included the defeat of ISIS, national conditioning borders, helping communities that are escaping terrorism, and inquiring the United Nations to understand terrorism as a menace to be confronted.
Well, thousands of European citizens have been murdered by so-called asylum seekers since 2014.
The minister rightly declared that the UN’s financing and guidance of mass migration proposed “a very serious threat to the whole of humanity.”
Szijjártó has additionally been highly critical of EU policy on migration. In September of last year, he stated that the EU wanted to “cram mandatory migrant quotas down the throats of European countries.”
There has been a great deal of strain on Hungary and other member states on the EU’s external border to unwind border regulation and let migrants deluge all over the border. In March of last year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel even said, “Member states on the external border of the EU must give up their national competencies in order to give Frontex [the EU’s border and coast guard agency] truly comprehensive competencies.”
The EU has been proposing to implement punitive sanctions on Hungary over its demanding immigration policies since 2015 when the migrant emergency commenced.
But, thus far, Hungary has retained sturdy, even building border fencing on its southern border in contravention of stated EU policy. And it proved helpful, with the stream of illegal immigrants decreasing from nearly 140,000 in 2015 to approximately 5,000 a year currently.
But Szijjártó has also expressed that the UN policy is way more harmful because of its ambitious worldwide reach. “The UN compact is more dangerous, however, because it has a global initiative, meaning it will have a greater effect than [European] policy and represents a risk to the whole world.”
The United Nations holding a conference concerning how to handle terrorism is akin to a farmer responding to the escape of his livestock. It’s just sound judgment that on the list of approaches to ending terrorism or the escape of livestock includes shutting down the door. Yet, in the UN’s scenario, at the very least, this option is never even deemed.
It appears as though the most common-sense reasoning about unchecked immigration is coming from places like Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic. Why would this be so?
Probably, it’s because they are areas that had been within the ruthless control of an organization outside their very own borders, the Soviet Union. Maybe they are extra sensitive to the notion that such a thing could happen again, this time under a globalist organization like the United Nations.
