The genocide of Christians is “a votive offering of the West” for oil

dav

The secretary of Foreign Affairs for the Philippines has told a panel discussion attached to the 74th Session of United Nations General Assembly that the persecution and killing of Christians throughout the world is a “votive offering of the West” to ensure oil supplies.

Participants of the panel related that “80% of people killed because of their religious beliefs are Christian and the number of Christians hurt or displaced is on the rise.

Hungary’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Peter Szijjarto, stressed that “In global politics, the fact that Christians are being persecuted is being ignored,” and that the Hungarian government is “fighting against the perception that Christianophobia would be the last acceptable form of discrimination.”

Since 2017, Hungary has provided $40 million to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Szijjarto said direct aid has been given to Catholic bishops eager to help Christians stay in their homes and encourage others to return from exile elsewhere.

“The bishops ask us not to invite people to settle in Europe because that contributes to fulfilling the goal of terrorist organisations to eliminate the Christian community,” he said.

Hungarian funds have been used to rebuild 1,000 homes on the Ninevah Plain in Iraq and reconstruct 33 Christian churches in Lebanon, he added. Four schools are being built in Iraq and Syria, and Hungary is covering the medical expenses of the three largest Christian hospitals in Syria.

Szijjarto said more than 50,000 Christians have either returned home or been able to stay in Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Ethiopia because of the Hungarian aid.

Ambassador Ghady El Khoury of Lebanon revealed that Christians now comprise just 5% of the population of the Middle East, down from almost 20% in the last century.

Big Families First in Hungary

“Hungary’s ever increasing support for families by the government is creating an environment where marriages and families are flourishing and abortion numbers are dropping, one of the country’s ministers advised a recent international conference on life and family.

The support has caused abortion numbers to plunge by more than a third of what they were in 2010 (40,449 to 28,500). It has also caused a plunge in the number of divorces (23,873 in 2010 to 18,600 in 2017) and a surge in the number of marriages (35,520 in 2010 to 50,600 in 2017).

‘A precondition of the medium and long-term social development and the sustainability of Hungary is a lasting turn in demographic trends,’ Katalin Novàk, Hungarian Minister of State for the Family, Youth and International Affairs, said.

‘The objective can be achieved with a stable, complex, targeted and flexible family policy that is capable of adapting to changing needs and conditions,’ she added.”

March 4 Life Europe – Budapest, 23rd July 2016

March4LifeEurope

On 23rd July, 2016, a European March for Life is due to take place in Budapest, attended by representatives of countries throughout Europe.

The parade will begin with the midday Angelus bells ringing out to commemorate the victory of Christian Europe over an Islamic invasion force at Nándorfehérvár (Belgrade) in 1456. The march will start in the square named after Saint John Capistrano, a hero of the battle, and will end on Saint Margaret’s island in the River Danube in the heart of the Hungarian capital.

The march will be the main public event in a weekend-long programme of activities in defence of unborn children to protest against the immoral and anti-Christian brutality of abortion and the disastrous demographic impact of murdering literally millions of unborn Europeans.
