  • Benjamin Netanyahu visits Hungary as PM Viktor Orban's

    HUNGARY, 2017/07/18 Thank you, Prime Minister Orbán, for this very warm welcome. I am honored to be the initial Israeli sitting prime minister to have an official visit to Hungary. It’s completely astounding that it didn’t happen before. It’s about time. And it’s wonderful to be here on this initial time. At the same time as I come to Hungary, the initial thing I think about, before anything else, is that Hungary was the, in a lot of ways, the birth of modern Zionism, the movement that led to the establishment of the modern Jewish national because in Hungary was born our modern Moses, Theodore Herzl. And I intend to visit on this visit the site of his home. It is probably inconceivable to think of the Jewish national, the National of Israel today, if it weren’t for that man born here in 1860, who envisioned the rebirth of the Jewish national and who saw in his mind’s-eye as well the great challenges that would be posed anti-Semitism. He thought that this from presently on was the best solution for the Jewish people.
