PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONNAIRE!

1. George Soros wants to convince Brussels to resettle at least one million immigrants from Africa and the Middle East annually on the territory of the European Union, including Hungary.

Soros has been working for many years to change Europe and European societies. He wants to achieve his goal by the resettlement of masses of people of different civilizational backgrounds. When presenting his plan, he put it this way: “[T]he EU has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future.” (Project Syndicate, September 26, 2015). The European Parliament represents a similar position. They supported relocation programs and the establishment of immigration routes. (2015/2342. (INI))

2. George Soros, alongside leaders in Brussels, also plan to have the member states of the EU, including Hungary, take down the border protection fences and open the borders for immigrants.

Well-guarded borders mean effective protection against illegal immigration. It is no coincidence that the dismantling of the border protection fences is an important goal of the Soros plan. This way, borders would open to illegal immigrants. The billionaire said that “our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle” (Bloomberg Business, October 30, 2015). Certain leaders in Brussels have also heavily criticized the border closure. The commissioner for migration stated in June that it was not a good solution if member states erect fences on the outer borders.

3. Part of the Soros plan is that Brussels would redistribute immigrants who accumulated in Western European countries into Eastern European countries in particular on a mandatory basis. Hungary would be required to participate in this.

George Soros wrote the following about the redistribution of immigrants: “If it doesn’t become permanent and mandatory feature of the common European asylum system, it will fall apart.” (Financial Times, July 26, 2015) In 2015, in Brussels, a decision was made that Hungary, as a first step, would be required to accept 1294 immigrants. Then, in 2016, the European Commission made a proposal to make it possible to redistribute an unlimited number of immigrants (IP/16/1620.). In harmony with George Soros’ proposal, the European Union Agency for Asylum is being established, which further weakens national authority over the issue of immigration. If resettlement quotas become effective, Hungarians will not have a say in whom they live together with in the future.

Do you support this point of the Soros plan?   YES /NO

4. Based on the Soros plan, Brussels should require every member state, including Hungary, to pay 9 million HUF in mandatory state aid for every immigrant.

According to Soros, significant amounts should be spent on immigrants. “The EU should provide EUR 15,000 per annum per asylum-seeker for the first two years to help cover housing, health care, and education costs – and to make accepting refugees more appealing to member states.” (Project Syndicate, September 26, 2015). According to the billionaire, this sum should be paid from loans. Soros proposes that taxes should be raised to pay the loans back. The billionaire would raise the value-added tax and taxes on gasoline and tourism. Last year, in Brussels, Soros also recommended that the EU, in order to overcome the migration crisis, should decrease agriculture and cohesion funds for Central European countries.

5. George Soros wants to achieve that migrants received lighter sentences for the crimes they commit.

George Soros, funds numerous organizations with significant amounts that assist immigration and defend immigrants who have committed unlawful acts. Such is the Hungarian Helsinki Committee which argued with regard to the prohibited crossing of the border closure that “the application of heavy legal consequences with regard to unlawful entry is concerning.” Another Soros-funded organization, Amnesty International, demanded numerous times that Ahmed H be set free, the man who was sentenced for attacking Hungarian policemen defending the border with stones. Amnesty would even have the Hungarian state pay compensation.*

Do you support this point of the Soros plan?   YES /NO

6. The goal of the Soros plan is to push the language and culture of European countries in the background in order to make the integration of illegal immigrants faster.

George Soros writes in his book titled “Open Society” that the “decline in the authority of the nation states is a welcome development.” Soros has also spoken openly that we must not give up our conviction that migration is benefiting Europe. He has called upon non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and companies to become sponsors of immigration. He also said the continent should finally take active steps to establish open societies. In some European countries and multinational companies European and Christian symbols are voluntarily removed so that they don’t “hurt the sensibilities of the immigrants.”

Do you support this point of the Soros plan?   YES /NO

7. It is part of the Soros plan to launch political attacks on countries objecting to immigration and strike them with harsh punishments.

The biggest obstacles in the execution of the Soros plan are the governments that make a stand for national independence and make moves against illegal immigration. The reason Soros cannot bring one million immigrants into Europe yet is that there are government that protest against it. The Hungarian government fulfills the Schengen Agreement when it protects the borders and builds a fence to impede the execution of the Soros plan. Soros and Brussels decisionmakers attack our homeland because of that. According to a proposal of the European Commission, member states that do not participate in the resettlement program would have to pay a 78 million HUF penalty for each migrant (2016/0133. (COD)). A Hungarian worker would have to work for decades to earn that much.

Do you support this point of the Soros plan?   YES / NO

Notes on the official translation

I did this translation because I found that the official version the government promotes in Hungarian has cut back on the nastiness in wording. Just at places where it may slip everyone’s attention.

* Mistranslations include:

  • The official translation back to English claim they quoted Soros’ book as “decline in those powers [of the sovereign state], ought to be a welcome development.” – which in fact reads “the decline in the authority of nation states” in the Hungarian translation of the letter.
  • The English version of the letter claims the Soros-funded NGOs protest “strict legal consequences” of unlawful acts by migrants – whereas the Hungarian original, by the Helsinki Committee refers to overly “heavy consequences”. Ahmed H – who was mentioned in the letter – was charged with ‘terrorism’ because he organised the breakthrough of refugees through the border after weeks in limbo and without communication. Not exactly the same gravity as the charge of “throwing stones” as the letter claims.
  • Instead of “masses of people with different civilizational background” (in the Hungarian version), the official verson suggested “different cultural background” in the English translation. Someone must have paid attention in class about Huntington.
  • For some reason, Soros and “Brussles decisionmakers” are “attacking national sovereignty” in the official translation but “national independence” in the Hungarian one. Maybe they also have tanks somewhere…
