Full speech of V. Orbán : Will Europe belong to Europeans? 22 July 2017

And if I were to name the most important event, the most important Hungarian and European event of the past year – the twelve months since our last meeting – I would say that it is the strengthening of the Visegrád Four.
Looking at Budapest, we can see that from Vienna to Istanbul it is the point – perhaps the only point – which can claim to be a cultural creation. This is because Budapest – as you well know – is not just a city, but a Hungarian cultural creation: an imprint of the Hungarian genius embodied in architecture and city planning. So Budapest is the place which is currently proving to itself and the world that there’s no world event – be it a sporting or cultural event, or a religious event such as the International Eucharistic Congress – which it couldn’t host. Apart from the FIFA World Cup, which is another matter, there’s no major world event that is beyond Budapest’s capabilities. This is great knowledge, great strength, and a major promise for the future. I could also say that our capital is capable of more than just serving the Hungarian state.
This is why we’ve launched an armed forces development programme, and have recently started construction of the first factory for the Hungarian arms industry.
There are three areas in which it is not enough to support processes, but in which we need a shift in scale, and the move to a fast track. One area is demography, in which we haven’t even reached a break-even point. It is some improvement that for married couples – or male-female couples in general – the fertility indicator expressing the nation’s demographic situation has risen from 1.2% to 1.44%, and this is promising, but 1.44 is still very far from 2. In order to feel safe demographically, the average statistical ratio of children to Hungarian couples should be 2.1. In practice this is hard to implement, but this is the average figure we should have.
In the period ahead we must dramatically intensify organisation of the Hungarian community in the Carpathian Basin – and in particular its economic strength. And the third area in which we need a shift in scale is integration of modern technology into the Hungarian economy. To do this we must participate in the new industrial revolution much more actively than we do at present.

So much for Hungary. Now I would like to say a few words about Europe. I apologise if today I seem to be dealing solely in simplifications. It’s not that I’ve lost my appetite for intellectual nuance, but the fact is that it is also possible to talk about these things in such simple terms.

Over the next few decades the main question in Europe will be this: will Europe remain the continent of the Europeans? Will Hungary remain the country of the Hungarians? Will Germany remain the country of the Germans? Will France remain the country of the French? Or will Italy remain the country of the Italians? Who will live in Europe? This is a historical question which we must face up to today. As regards the specific situation – and this is quite telling about the world that we live in today – there’s no concrete, reliable information on the percentages of traditional indigenous Christians and the incoming Muslim communities living in Europe’s individual countries. In practice it is forbidden to gather information like this. And the data which is gathered is not adequate for us to predict what the future holds for us, as migrants, immigrants, are not evenly distributed throughout the different age groups. So the general figures say little about what awaits us. We should focus most on people under the age of 15, and also those between 15 and 45. From those figures we can project, we can calculate, what the situation will be like in each country in, say, 2050.

Sparing no money and effort, every year the Hungarian government commissions an extensive international survey in order to find out what the European people think about these issues. This is not about what their leaders think, because we know that. The suspicion is that the opinions of the people don’t coincide with those of their leaders. This year’s survey showed that, across the 28 European Union countries, 81% of EU nationals thought immigration to be a serious or very serious issue. At a pan-European level, 64% believe that immigration leads to increased crime, and 59% believe that immigration changes the culture we live in. As regards the performance of Brussels, 76% of European nationals say that Brussels’ performance on immigration is poor. When asked whether more power should be given to Brussels to resolve this situation, or if nation states’ powers should be strengthened instead, we find that 36% of European citizens expect a solution from Brussels and would give it more power, while 51% expect nation states to provide solutions. In Hungary, 25% of our fellow citizens – and this is not an insignificant number, as we’re talking about every fourth Hungarian – believe that more power should be given to Brussels. But luckily 61% of our fellow citizens think that Brussels should have less power, and we should even take back those powers that we previously transferred to it – or at least some of them.
So, whether we like it or not, in terms of respect for life, optimism, commitment, the subordination of individual interests and ideals, today Muslim communities are stronger than Christian communities. Why would anyone want to adopt a culture that appears to be weaker than their own strong culture? They won’t, and they never will! Therefore re-education and integration based on re-education cannot succeed.
The first is that Hungary has defended itself – and Europe at the same time – against the migrant flow and invasion, and this has cost us 260–270 billion forints. The EU has reimbursed a tiny fraction of this sum. I could also say that the EU shouldn’t speak of solidarity until they’ve paid the 250 billion forints that they owe us for defending Europe.
Now if we speak about the future of Europe, we must first state in no uncertain terms that in order for Europe to be able to survive and remain the Europeans’ continent, the European Union must regain its sovereignty from the Soros Empire.
