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

I think this assertion of moral equivalence is shocking. After al, Hungary joined EU voluntarily, is happy to receive economic aid. Yes political pressure is strong but the EU is not about to send tanks to Budapest, are they?

as for ideology itself, while western Europe may be too liberal for Hungarians' liking, it is a far cry from totalitarian communism.
