Hungarian minister stands up to Jobbik's anti-semitism

The leaders of the Hungarian political party called Jobbik have been espousing anti-semitism for some time now, disgustingly enough. Fortunately, there's a government minister who's of Jewish descent who's stood up to them:
In a direct and valiant attempt to confront the recent anti-Semitic events that have plagued the Hungarian parliament, State Secretary of the Development Ministry Janos Fonagy revealed to politicians: “My mother and father were Jewish, and so am I, whether you like it or not."

The minster’s remarks came in response to last month’s calls by a far-right Hungarian politician for a list to be drawn up of all Jewish members of parliament and government.

“It is high time to assess many MPs and government members are of Jewish origin and who present a national security risk to Hungary,” said Marton Gyongyosi of the anti-Semitic Jobbik party, Hungary's third-largest political party, which holds 47 of 386 parliamentary seats.

Challenging the blatantly racist remarks, Fonagry said, "I cannot choose; I was born into this. But you can choose, and you have chosen this path," as he cautioned they would have to “bear history’s judgement”, The European Jewish Press (EJP) reported.
Thank goodness someone's got the guts to tell that Gyongyosi just what a disgrace he is. Gyongyosi should be expelled from their parliament for the way he's behaving.
