Hungarian MP arrested for burning Israeli flag during rally

PanARMENIAN.Net - Independent parliamentarian Balazs Lenhardt was detained by Budapest police on Friday, Dec 14 evening for burning an Israeli flag at an anti-Zionist demonstration in the Hungarian capital.

As The Jerusalem Post reports citing Hungarian daily Politics, a hundred of demonstrators participated in the event organized by the Guardians of Carpathian Homeland Movement and the Guard Federation held in front of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry.

Demonstrators shouted anti-Semitic slogans like "Filthy Jews" and "To Auschwitz With You All."
