Christian Foundations?

Reader comment on item: Hungary: Not "Submitting to Islam"

Orban certainly sees many chess moves ahead. Though currently he and his party on the surface seem friendly to Jews, I'd feel much more secure if he acknowledged 'Judeo-Christian foundations' rather than merely 'Christian foundations' to the Hungarian way of life.

By erasing the 'Judeo' influence he is rewriting history very subtly to generations of youth whose parents and grandparents are likely to be very happy with this rewrite as many willingly assisted in the genocide of their Jewish neighbours.
