    “pejoratively known as Gypsies”

    Rubbish – that is their centuries-old name in the Hungarian language, there is nothing derogatory in it.

    “I contrasted that with the statement the French foreign minister [Alain Juppe] made after the attacks last year on the Jewish school in Toulouse. [Juppe] said an attack on a French Jew is an attack on the republic.”

    I suppose it would have been a much more revealing comparison that, in contrast to France, such armed murderous attacks have NOT been committed against Jews in Hungary, so there is no need to go at the same length as in France…..
