The EU has tolerated Viktor Orbán for too long. It has to take a stand now

The Hungarian leader’s latest target is Budapest’s critical, multicultural Central European University. His illiberal ideology must not be allowed to spread

Didn't know the despicable Arthur Finklestein was still around.  Unfortunately, the even more despicable Sebastain Gorka is.

Hard to get past the assumption riddled first paragraph and then when one does it leads to more supposition and speculation. A fine example of anti-Russian propaganda. It even includes a prominent Jewish name in the speculation as the cherry on top of the whipped emotion.

Jewish has nothing to do with it.  The guy has a long history of working with such lovely folks as Ronald Reagan, Jesse Helms and Netanyahu.

Carry on with the ongoing conspiracy theories in a multitude of threads. Strange they all say that Putin is a puppet master and Trump and various and sundry Jewish financiers follow his bidding. Of course the Jewish part is merely coincidental and not to be discussed in polite company.

Which Jewish financiers?  George Soros?  The right's bete noire.

You keep missing the point, it doesn't matter which Jewish person because the Jewish person is just a dog whistle.

So let me seeing, accusing Putin of interfering to elect Trump, whose advisors include neo-Nazis Bannon and Gorka, is anti-Semitic dog whistling because the name Finklestein is used even though Finklestein happened to be involved?  Should they have just left him out of the story because his last name is Finkelstein?  Or changed it to Smith?

Maybe they shouldn't print speculation and innuendo but they do. You couldn't see a propaganda mill if it bit you in the nose.

Hungary should learn from the errors of the West. Mixing cultures will not lead to a higher quality of life but to a lower one.

As a resident of Montreal, I must disagree strongly. Mixing cultures has been our strength, not our weakness.
