Famous Jesuit Seeks Hungarian Citizenship Because of Orban's Immigration Policy

Ex-Caritas chief for Egypt and former "Caritas Internationalis" Council for North Africa and the Middle East: "The West and the Pope do not know the true nature of Islam"

Budapest-Wien (kath.net/KAP) The well-known Jesuit Henri Boulad has been one of those voices for years, warning against a spreading Islam. A few weeks ago, the long-standing Egyptian Jesuit Provincial and director of the Jesuit Cultural Center in Alexandria has now accepted Hungarian citizenship. In order to support the restrictive migration policy of the Hungarian head of government, Viktor Orban, and to exert a corresponding influence on the European immigration policy. This is what the 85-year-old Jesuit from Alexandria declared in an interview for the Hungarian weekly newspaper "Heti Valasz", the text of which was published by the Austrian magazine "Kirche In" in his current May issue in German. 

During an Egyptian visit to the Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister, Zsolt Semjen, Boulad said that he wanted to be granted citizenship. The request was made by decree. In the middle of March the Jesuit spoke the oath at a ceremony in the Budapest Parliament. With the assumption of Hungarian citizenship, he wanted to "signal that the country led by Viktor Orban has made the right decision on the issue of the migration crisis that threatens the existence of Europe," said Boulad. "I would like to (...) fight for the future and for the Christian values on the side of the Hungarians and Viktor Orbans," explained the Jesuit.

In principle, support for refugees and poor is "right and good," said Boulad, " The Church had adapted itself to the views of the French Islamologist Louis Massignon (1883-1962), for whom mystical Sufism had meant the essence of Islam. Islam, however, historically chose not the "Meccan," but the "Median," path that still determines it: "The surprises of the Koran, which appeal to unbelievers with violence and jihad, are from the Medina period [The prophet Mohammed, note], the tolerant, msystic surprises of the Mecca period."  "Rome," said Boulad, "does not understand this, and the Christians of the East, who know Islam from the inside, are not asked, they are put to the side." According to the Jesuit, the Catholic Church is based on the expertise of "Experts in Paris, Berlin, or America who are regarded as great Islamic scholars, whose views are purely academic," and thus "fell into the trap of the Christian-Islamic dialogue, which in reality resembles a dialogue of pigeons." Boulad sees this dialogue, even after 50 years, "is still at its starting point."  Big announcements about reforms in Islam have hardly any consequences. 

The Jesuit also complained that there is little dialogue with him either, and French and Canadian bishops have banned him from entering in their countries. "Masses of moderate and intelligent Muslims and Muslima think like me. They are trying to destroy Islam to save Muslims and Muslims," Boulad said in the interview. The Liberals of Islam are "faithful to the beauties of their religion. In order to preserve and defend them, they want to free themselves from the imposed dictatorship."

Hungary's Prime Minister: "A Europe Governed by Christian Values Would Regenerate"

Edit: Hungary has been challenging the established order now for some time, invoking St. Stephen, King of Monarchy, and attempting to abolish abortion. What else is in store? Also, remember, this man isn't Catholic, but protestant, but he's defending a Catholic order all the same.  The following is an attempt to translate the article from InfoCatolica with some help from google:

The presentation of the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, at the XIV Congress of Catholics and Public Life on "Hope and Christian Response to the Crisis", did not disappoint the expectations of the public, with a standing ovation that broke the silence that had followed his conference. Orban said that European economic depression does not respond to a "situation", but is a result of a crisis of spiritual order. Specifically, what is happening in Europe is the result of the forgetfulness of Christian values ​​that were the basis of their prosperity.

(CEU / InfoCatolica) The Hungarian Prime Minister wondered how it was possible that the collapse of the European dream of union based on Christian beliefs was still driven by them. "The European crisis," he said, "has not come by chance but by the carelessness, neglect of their responsibilities by leaders who have questioned precisely those Christian roots, that is, the driving force that allowed European cohesion, family, work, credit ... These values ​​were the old continental economic power, thanks mainly to the development which in those days was done in accordance with principles."

As an example of the economic collapse that led to the crisis, he cited a change in direction of the credits previously granted to persons accredited, as responsible, but have come to offer to those who were not. There was a credit, yes, explained Viktor Orban, but even this was subject to the "standards" of Christianity. Thus, in a "Christian Europe" the excesses that caused the current difficulties, would not have been possible, he said. "A Christian Europe would have noticed that every euro is worked for. A Christian Europe would not have allowed entire countries sink into slavery to credit."

Loans with usury, uncollectible lead to debt slavery

He recalled how the Old Testament prohibited usury and how the Church has always rejected the abusive charging interest ... until the Reformation which gave way to greed, so that now the credits have been stripped of their moral dimension and entire countries have become enslaved by debts. "The yoke is no longer the sword to become debt," he added. This has become a more acute crisis in which political leaders have begun to forget the human aspects to be forced to pay the debts of the former, who in turn, have safeguarded their personal interests placed in large companies or institutions after "a career" in politics, said the prime minister of Hungary. The new leaders look with scorn and mock Christian values, especially for the defense of life, family.

The Example of Hungary

Orban has stated his belief that behind every successful economy there is "some kind of spiritual driving force." "A Europe governed according to Christian values ​​would regenerate" stressed in the light of this reasoning."

He gave the example of his country, Hungary, explaining that a poor country like Hungary with a legacy of communism and where the average pension is 250 euros, has begun to rebuild morally. Calling to mind that their first king, St. Stephen offered the crown to the Virgin Mary, dying without issue.

Your new constitution is based on the dignity, freedom, family, nation, fidelity, and love, with the express obligation to help the poor. That is, it is based on Christian values, something that has deeply angered the European left that came to condemn in the Parliament in Strasbourg , because it wants to make Europe a continent where atheist family concept is replaced by individualism.


As a result of his own experience, Viktor Orban proposed a renewal of culture and politics based on Christian values ​​and, more precisely, in the description that St. Paul makes where charity rejoices with the truth. "We must make our that message and not see another way ..." Orban said at the end of his lecture, enthusiastically acclaimed by the audience for a few long minutes of applause.
