Hungary Posts Warning Ads in Mideast Papers

Thousands of refugees continued to arrive in the Balkans today, despite the Hungarian government posting ads in Lebanese and Jordanian newspapers warning them that entering the country illegally is a crime punishable by imprisonment.

In a full-page advertisement in several newspapers, including Lebanon’s leading An-Nahar and Jordan’s Al-Rai, the government said ‘the strongest possible action is taken’ against people who attempt to enter Hungary illegally.

This afternoon Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban followed up the ads with incendiary language, insisting that Europe’s borders are threatened by the refugees, who he claimed were ‘breaking down the doors’. He subsequently granted the Hungarian army additional powers to deal with the crisis.

is it a coincidence the former puppet countries of the USSR, having gained a modicum of freedom, want nothing to do with the invasion?
