Prime Minister of Hungary will visit the Wailing Wall

In Jerusalem Hungary’s PM declares ‘zero tolerance’ for anti-Semitism

Under Netanyahu's leadership, ties with Orban have warmed, prompting criticism from the local Jewish community over the Hungarian prime minister's attacks on Jewish billionaire George Soros, which critics say toy with anti-Semitic stereotypes, and his past praise for a former Nazi ally.

"You have stood up for Israel time and time again in global forums", Netanyahu said.

"I know what you are doing against anti-Semitism".

A year ago, Netanyahu made the first trip to Budapest by an Israeli prime minister since the fall of communism in 1989, thanking Orban for "standing up for Israel in worldwide forums". It could endanger the world. "It could endanger Europe, it could endanger the world, it certainly endangers us and our Arab neighbours".

Orban has cast himself as champion of a Christian Europe and adopted a tough stance against the influx of African and Muslim migrants to the continent, campaigning for re-election on a relentless anti-migration policy. Orban, re-elected earlier this year, has been at the forefront of keeping migrants from war zones such as Syria out of Europe since the crisis became particularly acute in 2015.

Orban's first visit in Israel follows a trip to Budapest by Netanyahu in 2017.

"Under Orban's leadership, Hungary has broken free of the shackles of democracy".

Mondelēz said that, if successful with consumers, it will look to apply the same approach to other Cadbury Dairy Milk products. Mondelēz worldwide is launching a range of lower sugar options of some of its most popular chocolate bars in the UK.

According to Channel 10, Israel's Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer and other Israeli officials have met with members of the Trump administration "on a number of occasions" to encourage establishing stronger ties with Hungary under Orban. Critics of the compromise with Poland contend Netanyahu appeared to capitulate to the claim that Poles were only victims of the Nazis.

The protesters had also chided Yad Vashem for hosting Orban.

Opposition lawmaker Yair Lapid, whose father was a Hungarian Holocaust survivor, scorned Netanyahu ahead of his meeting with Orban.

The trip comes a day after reports in the Israeli media that, under Netanyahu's orders, Israel has lobbied the United States administration to "open doors" to Orban's government, which has traditionally been kept at arm's length due to its ultra-nationalist stances and the prime minister's embracing of what he has termed an "illiberal democracy". On Friday, before returning to Hungary, he will visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City.

Budapest believes the Israel visit is "an important step in dispelling the charges of anti-Semitism in Hungary and the Orbán Government".

Amnesty International in Israel organized a protest against Orban's visit to the memorial, rejecting "restraint toward the words of praise for anti-Semitism, for racism and anti-democratic persecution".
