YES!!!!!! Leader Of Anti-Semitic Party In Hungary Discovers He’s Jewish

I ordinarily don’t wish ill will on people but this makes my heart sing.

by EYDER PERALTA

It’s quite dramatic with an incredible plot twist: One of the leaders of Hungary’s Jobbik Party, which the Anti-Defamation League says is one of the few political parties in Europe to overtly campaign with anti-Semitic materials, has discovered that he is himself a Jew.

As the AP says, Csanad Szegedi had in the past railed about the “Jewishness” of the political class. According to the ADL, his party’s presidential candidate referred to Israeli Jews as “lice-infested, dirty murderers.”

For Szegedi all of this came to a screeching halt, when in 2010 a prisoner confronted him with evidence that he had Jewish roots. According to the AP, Szegedi tried to bribe the prisoner to keep him quiet, but rumors and innuendo reached a fever pitch by late last year and in June, Szegedi conceded that his mother was a Jew. According to Jewish law, that makes Szegedi Jewish, too.

Not only that, but Szegedi’s grandmother survived Auschwitz and his grandfather survived labor camps. 

More on this story, The Wall Street Journal  and the AP story is fairly exhaustive.

“The tabernacle of unity hath been raised; regard ye not one another as strangers. Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch.”  Bahá’u’lláh  (Baha’i)
 

Behold, how good and pleasant it is

when brothers dwell in unity! 

It is like the precious oil upon the head,

running down upon the beard,

upon the beard of Aaron,

running down on the collar of his robes! 

It is like the dew of Hermon,

which falls on the mountains of Zion! 

For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, 

life for evermore.

 Psalm 133
