Hungary’s Prime Minister has claimed that ‘Christianity is Europe’s last hope’ after accusing politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris of causing the ‘decline of Christian culture and the advance of Islam’.

During his annual state of the nation speech, Viktor Orban said his government will oppose efforts by the United Nations or the European Union to ‘increase migration’ around the world.
In a passionate speech, he claimed that Islam would soon ‘knock on Central Europe’s door’ from both the west and the south.
Orban, who is seeking a third consecutive term in April’s elections, called for a global alliance against migration.
In his speech, he insisted that Western Europe is being overtaken by Muslims, before claiming that ‘born Germans are being forced back from most large German cities, as migrants always occupy big cities first.’
He made the claims as his right-wing populist Fidesz party began campaigning for an April 8 election in which it is expected to win a third consecutive landslide victory.
He is popular in Hungary but is increasingly at odds with mainstream European Union politicians.
