A Hungarian political party widely viewed as fascist and anti-Semitic could finish second in national elections on April 6.
“Jobbik, the Movement for a Better Hungary,” is already the third largest political party in Hungary and a second place finish behind ruling party Fidesz in less than three weeks could vault Jobbik into a coalition government.
According to the Hungarian political site, Politics.Hu, support for Jobbik among Hungarian voters has risen to 16 percent.
While Jobbik describes itself as "a principled, conservative and radically patriotic Christian party," it has been labeled as fascist, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and anti-Roma by journalists, scholars and political figures in Hungary.
Jobbik also dislikes evangelicals who support Israel. Hungary’s largest evangelical church has launched a Hungarian Facebook page called Vote Against Jobbik.
Rev. Sandor Nemeth, the pastor of Faith Church in Budpaest, which has 60,000 attendees, calls the April 6 election “a crucial day,” because Nemeth says Jobbik views “Jews and the pro-Israel, Evangelical Christian community as their top enemies.”
He said Hungary’s Christians “need the help and support of all our friends and sisters and brothers in Christ.”
Pastor Nemeth is calling for an outpouring of “likes” on their Facebook page from everyone who supports tolerance and freedom, and especially from Christians and supporters of Israel, to show strong opposition to Jobbik.
