“At the meeting on Sunday, according to state media, Orban even handed the Pope a provocative gift: A copy of a letter from a 13th-century Hungarian king to then-Pope Innocent IV, asking for Rome’s help to defeat an onslaught of foreign invaders — an apparent reference to Muslim invaders in the 21st century,” reports CBS News.
Interestingly, at this meeting, the Pope condemns growing anti-Semitism in Europe, yet fails to link it to the mass importation of Jew-hating Muslim migrants.
ZeroHedge (h/t Nita) Balazs Orban, Deputy Minister for the Prime Minister’s Office described the historical importance of the letter on Twitter. “PM Orbán presented a letter to Pope Francis that King Béla IV wrote for Pope Innocent IV in 1250,” he wrote.
“The King warned of the looming threat of the Tatar (Muslim) invasion and called for the unity of Europe. He was ignored. 35 yrs later Hungary fended off the Tatars with great bloodshed.”
However, Pope Francis is unlikely to change his mind and this was emphasized when he told a crowd in Budapest that Hungarians should “extend their arms to everyone,” referring to migrants and refugees.
Orbán has repeatedly warned that Europe’s native population decline is a “sickness” and that population replacement via mass Muslim migration represents “demographic suicide.”
Hungary Today As the Prime Minister posted the picture about the meeting with the Pope, his Facebook page has blown up. Hundreds of comments have been posted about the two person’s political views in the question of migration. Most of the comments are against the pope as once he said the migrants are gifts of Europe and we should not close the gates. Tellingly, two days ago the Hungarian Prime minister announced Hungary construction of additional border walls in preparation for an even bigger migrant wave.
