Back to the future, again: Jews as a “national security risk”

Is this 2012 or 1932? As reported by CNBC, the leader of Hungary’s third largest party has just used a televised session of parliament to call on the government to compile a list of all Jews in the country because, he says, they pose a “national security risk.” Does this sound familiar? Even today, respect for the most basic human rights cannot be taken for granted in Europe. (If you’re interested in this topic, see my other recent postings about neo-fascism on this blog.)
