Hungarian town hangs effigies of ‘Jewish terrorist’ leaders

The mayor of a town in eastern Hungary held an event, hanging effigies of the prime minister and former president of Israel to protest the war in Gaza.

Mihaly Zoltan Orosz, who has been mayor of Erpatak since 2005, tells The Associated Press that the “Jewish terror state” is trying to obliterate the Palestinians and says he opposes “the efforts of Freemason Jews to rule the world.”

Hungary’s Foreign Ministry condemns the mayor’s actions, saying he is using innocent victims of the war “to spread hate-inducing propaganda.”

An online video of Saturday’s event shows an executioner, with a black hood over his face, kicking chairs out from under the puppets of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former president Shimon Peres, each tied to a gallows.
