Anti-Semitic Politician Discovers He’s Jewish

It seems like an episode of the Dave Chappelle show: An up-and-coming leader of Hungary’s virulent anti-Semitic party got the shock of his life when it was uncovered recently that he is of Jewish descent.

Csanad Szegedi was notorious for his anti-Semitic comments about Jews, accusing them of “buying up” the country, claiming Jews were desecrating national symbols, complaining about the “Jewishness” of other politicians, and referring to Israelis as “lice-infested, dirty murderers.”

He started his career in 2007 as a founding member of the Hungarian Guard, a group that modeled itself after a pro-Nazi party called the Arrow Cross, which briefly governed Hungary at the end of World War II and killed thousands of Jews. Though the Hungarian Guard was banned by the courts in 2009, Csanad was already a rising star in Hungary’s far-right Jobbik Party, the only party to openly campaign with anti-Semitic imagery and messages.

After Csanad was confronted by a convicted felon with evidence of his lineage, Csanad tried to bribe the man to keep the revelation a secret, but he didn’t take the bait. To top it off, not only is Csanad Jewish, but he’s the descendant of Holocaust survivors. When he confronted his grandmother, she revealed that she was, indeed, in Auschwitz and Dachau and was the sole survivor in her extended family. She hid the truth, she explained, because anti-Semitism is still alive and well in Hungary. Not surprisingly, Csanad was sacked from all of his positions and forced to resign from Jobbik.

When the team at 4Zion heard about Csanad’s predicament, we thought we’d throw him a bone, and so we brainstormed a list of things Csanad should do as he attempts to adjust to his new life as a Jew.

    None of that story is funny! People being murdered and tortured is NEVER funny. It’s not even a “Jewish” issue… The common denominator is evil that looks to kill ALL of us! I support and LOVE ISRAEL. but murder is a human / Satan issue.

    Csanad Szegedi–is not fully racially Jewish–in fact he doesn’t look Jewish at all.

    And let’s not forget there were many Jews who supported and worked for the Nazi’s–and some Jews of the Third Reich were given honorary Aryan status–because they were such good Nazi’s!

    The history of the Jews is one of Godless rebellion amongst most of them–with only a small number being of God.

    “After Csanad was confronted by a convicted felon with evidence of his lineage” It is irrelevant to the story whether this man is a felon or not!

    That is the love of God in his humorous way; too funny who knows it culd be for such a time as this in that particularregion….for Israel and God’s people…a modern day Saul that may turn to Paul as he was on the road to Damacus.

    It goes to show that you should never judge people out of bigotry, because you could be a part of the ones you judge. I love how my Lord makes us see the error of our ways. Ironically we are all descended from the Jewish people in one line or another, so how can we judge one another on who we are?

    Now is the time to show this man the love of God, Jewish or not. God works in mysterious ways. Who knows what He has in mind for this man. He has lost his job and suddenly is someone he hated. How very painful.

    I pray for God to bless Israel. I can only say that the time has come for this man to return to his roots. He will find a loving God awaiting for Him. Maybe this man will become a revolutionary for speaking for the Jewish people.

      I agree with you. G-d works in mysterious ways! Only He knows the heart of this man and what he is called to do for the Jews!

    Perhaps a rite of passage known as bar mitzvah? He should be proud to be a Jew. They are direct descendants of the son of God, Jesus. He should also start apologizing to all of Jewish descent. However, I would forget about Mayor Michael Bloomberg, he is not a true Jew.

    I love the To Do list. There are a lot of contradictions about israel for example being such an advance country… how is it possible that you have poor people in Israel?

      Poverty will always be with us until Jesus comes back to rule this world, What is happening today all over the world is a sprititual battle between Satan and God.We are created in God’s image and He wants to be our Father but Satan wants us also
