Edith Bruck lambasts her fellow anti-Israeli left-wingers

November 8th, 2023

A pro-government commentator sees Hungary’s oft-criticised stance against unlawful mass immigration as vindicated by Bruck’s criticism of left-wingers siding with the Palestinians against Israel.

In Magyar Nemzet, László Szőcs quotes excerpts from the writer Edith Bruck’s interview with Corriere della Sera where she acknowledges that despite having always been a left-winger, in Italy he sees the right-wing Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her deputy, Matteo Salvini as the ones who care for the safety of Jews, in the face of mounting anti-Semitism. Edith Bruck was deported by the Nazis from Hungary in 1944 and settled in Italy afterwards. Szőcs admits that Bruck is a critic of the Hungarian government. Nevertheless, he sees her words as vindicating Hungary’s long-standing opposition to uncontrolled mass immigration into Europe, as it is Muslim immigrants, often supported by the Left ‘in their blindness’, who represent a physical threat to Jews in Europe.
