    Doubtless there are some antisemitics in Hungary. In which country are there none? However the sins of the few........

    But
    "The (Hungarian) government is always quick to refute this (antisemitiism), saying that Jews in Hungary are safer and freer than in western Europe. "Open threats and attacks on Jewish people, the likes of which happen today in Germany are unimaginable in Hungary," Orban recently wrote.

    And
    According to a 2018 study by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), Jews in Hungary felt safer than in other EU countries. Only 13% worried about becoming the victim of an anti-Semitic physical attack. By comparison, 58% of Jews in France feared this and 47% of those living in Germany.

    And
    It was an Orbán Government that made Holocaust education a mandatory part of the national curriculum and saw to it that our new constitution specifically identifies the Jewish community as a constituent part of the Hungarian nation.

    And
    Hungary does not need to guard, with on occasions armed guards, synagogues as is found to be necessary in some of Western Europe (including London on occasions)

    It's a bit rich for Individual A to declare Individual B 'innocent', without addressing all the bile he himself posted about "blackmail" " run on a currency" "democracy-capture" "corrupt lobbying".

    If perhaps you think that you spouted those tropes because you are ignorant, rather than prejudiced, then the last three paragraphs of this might give you a clue why you might make people feel "trigger sensitive". Or something.

    Nicely put by Jonti:
    And there in lies the problem..
    This whole episode on this thread shows the potential problem with discussion on the internet. It is so much easier to get a point across in person as you are also sending so many signals as to how you are saying something. Words alone rarely paint a full picture.

    Please folks, any chance we could stick to talking about green building? There's plenty of other places where anyone can air their political beliefs.

    Nothing like stepping into a minefield as a learning experience. Thanks for it. Even when thinking I'm on the 'right' side, there's always more levels of unconscious bias at work, it seems.

    There is a thread category of 'Politics' so this discussion is not IMO totally out of court. And we all had our 2d worth about Brexit didn't we. Just as long as we all stay within acceptable friendly limits.
