Postcard from Positano

first_imgYou can’t hasten through Positano. Nor can you sprint through any part of Amalfi Coast, located in southern Italy – be it Sorrento, Salerno, Capri or Positano. Once you are off Naples, the coastline plays havoc with your emotions. Miles together, the beauty of the undulating coastal landscape leaves you enthralled. Clear blue water kissing gentle white breakers, gulls flocking in groups, drifting white clouds – absolutely intoxicating. No, you cannot race through any of these destinations. You must arrive with enough time and be prepared to write a postcard every day. Also Read – Oman – Beauty with an address Sorrento There are two types of fast trains from Rome to Naples. The state-owned national rail Trenitalia, and Italotreno run by a second railway company. We bought tickets on Italo online. At Roma termini, the announcement of departure came only 10 minutes before the scheduled boarding time. And, before we could finish a cup of coffee and short nap on board, we were in Naples! Garibaldi station at Naples Rail Terminus is one level below and tickets to Sorrento can be purchased here and further at a tobacconist. Though the train is shabby and slow, the beauty in motion outside the window more than compensates for the mild discomfort. Also Read – CANADA: A traveller’s delightAfter Rome, a cosmopolitan, tourist-infested city, the train journey from Naples to Sorrento is refreshingly local in flavour. After many small one minute stops, came Pompeii. A group of tourists got off to see the ruins, desperately clutching umbrellas and cameras together while stepping into the drizzle. The train was nearly empty now. At the far end of the compartment, two men in their forties were talking animatedly. One of them noticed that we were listening to their conversation and asked, “India?” I nodded. “Not many Indians come to Amalfi Coast, you will like it,” said the one with the dark glass and an Italian cap. I said, it is my second visit to Naples, though I have not gone beyond. Conversations are easy to initiate, offering you gentle welcome and warmth. Sorrento railway station and the city have nothing in common. The shabby station gave way to a beautifully manicured city, which unfolded as we drove to our hotel in a Mercedes van, driven by a middle-aged soft-spoken Italian driver, happy to introduce us to his resident town. Our hotel on Via Capo was on the edge of the cliff, allowing a spectacular view of the Gulf of Naples. Without wasting any time, we walked our way to the ferry station to take a boat to the Island of Capri. At Capri, harbour buses leave every half-an-hour to Anacapri, the top of the mountain. Anacapri allows a breathtaking view of the gulf. You can sit in a restaurant by the cliff, order some white wine and nibble at the olives in the freshly prepared salad. From atop the cliff, boats to Blue Grotto and around the island looked like tiny toys, leaving trails of white spume behind them. By evening, the weather had cleared and we were back to Sorrento by the last ferry. As we walked down the quaint streets of Sorrento’s popular square, we were sure that we have not experienced anything as pretty as this little town. Buildings and shops complement each other in architecture, aesthetics and design. Locals are tourist-friendly, always ready to guide you around. Sparkling clean roads are filled with high net worth European and American tourists, who spend a good amount of time in the city, soaking in the good weather that they so dearly miss back home during autumn. Sorrento has everything to offer – a beautiful coastline with an active harbour, pretty apartment blocks, a majestic square with cosy shops and restaurants, departmental stores and big shopping malls, art galleries and up-market hotels. Positano We took a bus from Sorrento to Positano that fits 16 passengers. Smaller vehicles though also manoeuver well through narrow winding roads adjoining the coastline. On one side of the road is the rocky mountain while on the other side is a sharp drop of 1,000 meters into the Tyrrhenian Sea. As the bus takes sharp turns, you see villas perched at the top of the rocky mountain. Most of these are owned by celebrities, either Italian or Hollywood movie stars or millionaires from Europe. Occasionally, there are shops selling fruits and juices by the road. You can park and pick up something to cool off while enjoying the magnificent view of the coast. Far away, on the right, was a small island with a large villa. The guide pointed out and informed that this was once owned by Jacqueline Onassis, widow of the famous Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis. Jacqueline died of cancer in 1994. Half way to Positano is the town of Amalfi, after which the entire coast has been named. We stopped by for a sandwich and coffee. The panoramic view of the city from the pier, with twin rocky mountains as the backdrop, is a photographer’s delight. We took a short boat trip to see the expanse of Amalfi coast and the city. On the far left, as you face the beautiful city, is the famous villa of Italian film artist Sophia Loren, gifted to her by her husband Carlo Ponti. The steps from the sea go right up to the villa and also offer a gliding lift to take guests who do not want to walk up. As you approach Positano, along the way are shops with scooters parked outside. Once off the bus, you walk down the narrow by-lanes of the picture postcard town. Shops along the lane are among the prettiest you will see anywhere in the world. Clothes, laces, hats, art galleries – all retail outlets lined up one after the other to entice you. We took the lane that takes you to the church and then finally to the beach. Positano has a black sand beach, created from the volcanic ashes of Vesuvius among others. We walked all the way to the water and then turned around to see the picture postcard town. The first thing that strikes you in the multi-coloured dome of the church. The colours of the houses perched on the mountain vary from white to light yellow to yellow to light pink to dark pink and to end with deep red. All of it together appears like a patch work of watercolour creatively arranged by an artist. So beautiful and breathtaking – you cannot take your eyes away; you will wonder about who perceived the idea of this settlement on a mountain which looks so unreal. At the day’s end, we checked into a small boutique hotel where our room had a tiny but pretty balcony, overlooking the vast expanse of Tyrrhenian Sea. Wrought iron table and chairs were laid out for guests to soak in the beauty and tranquility complementing the view. After a day full of hectic activities, we finally settled down, stretched our tired legs, ordered some tea and looked ahead into the horizon. From the hotel terrace, atop the hill, the sea looked calm and boats static, as if the world just stopped still. The silence around was overpowering, lending a sense of emptiness, a vacuum that you don’t want to escape from.last_img read more

Morocco Worlds Oldest Library Opens to Public

Taroudant – King Mohammed VI is expected to soon inaugurate the reopening of Morocco’s University of Al Qarawiyyin library in Fez, according to The National. The library is the world’s oldest library.Founded 12 centuries ago by Fatima Al Fihri and nestled in the old medina of Fez, the library will open to the public for the first time in its history.Fez native architect Aziza Chaouni, who specializes in restoring old buildings in a sustainable manner and is also a trained engineer with degrees from Harvard and Columbia, is leading the restoration of the old library. According to the same source, Chaouni said she was pleasantly surprised when the Ministry of Culture approached her in 2012 to work on the project, despite having grown up in the city.“I knew about the mosque, but never even knew there was a library there,” she said.The architect is doing her best to convince those in charge to open an exhibit room to show the decades-old manuscripts.The library is home to many rare manuscripts, which are kept in a secure room, “with strict temperature and humidity control.”“The original manuscript room door had four locks,” library curator Abdelfattah Bougchouf said. “Each of those keys was kept with four different people. In order to open the manuscript room, all four of those people had to physically be there to open the door.”The curator added that now “all of that has been replaced with a four-digit security code”.According to Abdelhadi Tazi, PhD, in his doctoral proposal, Fatima Alfihri, known as Ummou Al Banin, meaning “mother of sons,” dedicated her wealth with the approval of the Idrissi king Yahya I to build the mosque for her community.The mosque was later turned into a school to serve as a university hosting many world renowned thinkers and scientists.The historic university of Fez is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest degree-granting university in the world. Moreover, UNESCO considers Al-Karaouine to have been a university since its founding. read more

Syria UN agency warns violence near refugee camp endangering thousands of Palestinians

“UNRWA is extremely concerned about the safety and protection of Syrian and Palestinian civilians in the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk in Damascus, where since early afternoon today, intensive armed conflict has been ongoing between armed groups present in the area,” Chris Gunness, spokesperson for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), said in a statement. UNRWA is demanding all parties respect and comply with their obligations to ensure the protection of civilians in the camp and called for an end to the fighting and a return to conditions that will enable its staff to support and assist Yarmouk’s civilians. Some 18,000 civilians, including some 3,500 children, reside in Yarmouk and are at extreme risk of death, serious injury, trauma and displacement, said Mr. Gunness.“The intense armed clashes put these children at risk of serious injury and death. The lives of these children must be protected,” he added, emphasizing that people have “suffered enough during Syria’s pitiless conflict.”Earlier this week, on Tuesday at a donors’ conference in Kuwait, governments pledged a total of $3.8 dollars to help the millions of people affected by the four-year Syria war, including Palestinian refugees. read more

Free Google Maps API deemed anticompetitive in France

first_imgIn a very bizarre ruling, Google has been found guilty of unfair competition and anti-competitive behavior in France because it offers the Google Maps API for free. That’s right, free is unfair. Bottin Cartographes is a mapping solutions company, but they offer maps for a fee. So when Google came along and offered a similar service to businesses without the costs involved, you can understand why Bottin was a little upset. The company’s response was to sue Google for unfair competition in the Paris courts.Bottin argued that Google was only offering Google Maps for free so as to gain control of the market. In other words, they suggested free was only a short term policy and that Google will be switching to a paid service in the future, once companies like Bottin have disappeared.The judge agreed that Google was trying to remove the competition and found in favor of Bottin. Google France has been ordered to pay damages in the amount of $600,000 to Bottin, as well as a further fine of around $20,000.This is not the end of the matter though, as Google intends to appeal the verdict. The company believes a “free high-quality mapping tool” benefits everyone.More at AFP Matthew’s OpinionOn the face of it this looks to be a misunderstanding by the judge and Bottin that Google intends to switch Google Maps over to a paid-for service. On the consumer side that isn’t likely to ever happen. However, Google does have a Google Maps API for Business, which you pay for.The question is, has Google offered business users the paid-for version of the API for free? If so, then Bottin did have a case and it’s easy to understand why the judge ruled as he did. The business version of the API does offere enhanced features you can’t get in the free API, and that is what Bottin likely offers with its paid maps.If Google is offering Google Maps API for Business with the charges dropped, then it’s unlikely an appeal will work. That is, unless they guarantee the Business API will never be switched to a paid service in the future.last_img read more

Leaked Microsoft Surface Pro starting at €809 in Germany

first_imgThe Surface RT seems to be selling like hotcakes, but many would-be buyers are holding out for its Intel-powered sibling, the Surface Pro. It’s not available yet, but that hasn’t stopped online retailer Notebook.de from adding two SKUs to its system and pricing out the 64GB Surface Pro at €809 and the 128GB model for €100 more.Converting those figures directly won’t give an accurate picture of what the Surface Pro will sell for in the U.S., but they might help us take an educated guess. Considering that the 11-inch, 64GB MacBook Air sells for €1049 in Germany and $999 in the U.S., it seems as though the Surface Pro could fall somewhere in the $699 to $749 range. And since an extra 32GB of storage for the Surface RT costs $100, the bump from 64GB to 128GB on the Surface Pro could easily tack on another $150.As always, these figures need to be taken with a healthy dose of salt. Microsoft hasn’t revealed anything official yet, and there’s an additional reason to be doubtful about Notebook.de’s listing. It originally claimed delivery dates of three two four weeks, but most industry sources say that the Surface Pro won’t start shipping until January. Based on that kind of “optimism,” it’s very possible that these folks are simply throwing out a reasonable-sounding figure and hoping that Surface enthusiasts are willing to plunk down their pre-order cash.Notebook.de has since revised the listing, which now says what we’d expect: “currently no delivery date given by supplier.” No one’s going to start shipping the Surface Pro before Microsoft, so it might be a good idea to hang on to your cash and keep watching the Surface website (and Geek.com, of course) for more news.More at The Windows Clublast_img read more

Archaeologists uncover new Yupik artifacts near Quinhagak

first_imgAt a site near the Southwest Alaska village of Quinhagak archaeologists are racing against time to uncover Yup’ik artifacts before the effects of climate change cause them to erode into the sea. The old village continues to reveal artifacts that give a glimpse into the daily lives of Yup’ik people hundreds of years ago.The crowning artifact found this season, says Rick Knecht, the lead archaeologist and a professor from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, is a mask — half human, half walrus — in nearly perfect condition. It’s wrapped in several layers of plastic as Knecht keeps the mask damp and cool in a refrigerator at base camp.“It’s got amazingly lifelike contours with the cheek bones, and the nose, and the forehead and so on. Beautifully carved out of wood, and as you can see it’s got two little conical tusks that represent that transformation into a walrus. And these are in fact made out of walrus ivory. It’s got a little beard here, and half of it are human hairs and then on the other half are sea mammal hairs, maybe walrus whiskers,” said Knecht.Knecht says the mask could have been a used by a Shaman. He unearthed it, about five miles outside Quinhagak, on the edge of the Bering Sea, where archaeologists have spent the six field seasons scraping dirt from the remains of a 500-year old Alaska Native sod house. Today’s discovery of a wooden bowl gives another clue about how Yup’ik people lived.“On the bottom of the bentwood bowl is an ownership mark left by the person who carved that and these ownership marks were inherited between families. We have about six or seven ownership marks we see consistently throughout this site, which we believe was a very large sod house divided up into compartments which were domestic spaces for women and children,” said Knecht.His team has found tens of thousands of household items, jewelry and weapons, among other things. The dig is composed of what’s left of an entire village at the site of the ancient community of Arolik.The objects look much younger than the centuries they’ve endured. That’s because they’ve been encased in permafrost. Wood and leather items can survive for hundreds of years. The oldest objects date as far back as seven hundred years.Unseasonably warm temperatures at the dig site– nearly 80 degrees- create another set of variables for the crew to deal with. Conditions that Knecht say are driving the crew to work as fast as possible before more washes away.Dig site. Photo: Daysha Eaton/KYUK.In the early 1600s, right around the time that Shakespeare was publishing plays and poems in England, Knecht says, these people were crafting art too: carving intricate ivory jewelry and weaving baskets. Then, in the middle of the 17thCentury, says Knecht, their communal, sod house was attacked and burned.Carlotta Hillerdal is a co-investigator with Knecht on the project. Back at the dig, she points to a burnt orange streak running along the dark soil of the dig’s dirt wall.“This site was abandoned around 1640. So that’s where we have the kind of orange and black soil that you see in the wall over there that we dug. That’s the roof of the last phase of the structure that stood here that was burnt down and abandoned,” said Hillerdal.The evidence at the site corresponds with local Yup’ik lore about the ‘bow and arrow wars,’ a time of fighting between tribes during an earlier climate change that strained resources.Those are stories that Yup’ik elder Annie Cleveland knows. She says, when she was a girl, she remembers walking on the beach just outside of her village and finding old spears and human remains along the shore.“When my grandmother and I used to walk down the beach to get some driftwood or pick berries we used to find spear-anek (spears) and maybe a human bone and skull and we used to put the bones back up there and dig a little bit and cover them,” said Cleveland.That spot where she and her grandmother kept reburying things has turned into the dig called Nunalleq, meaning ‘old village’. Cleveland says the project is bringing to life history for Yup’ik people in her village and giving them a sense of pride. The Native corporation in Quinhagak eventually wants to develop eco-tourism around the site, but rapid erosion has made getting artifacts out the priority.As they dig, researchers are finding that the village is larger than expected. With the new discoveries they’ve tacked on another season of fieldwork to unearth more history before it’s too late.The archaeologists will ship the artifacts to Scotland for study and preservation before they return them to the region. Tribal leaders say they will eventually display them either in Bethel or Quinhagak.Archaeologist, Rick Knecht will give a talk about the Quinhagak Archaeology dig on Thursday from noon to 1 p.m. in room 118 at the Kuskokwim Campus of UAF in Bethel.last_img read more

Government flayed for meagre hike in support price

first_imgBhimadolu: Farmers under the auspices of AP Rythu Sangham criticised the Union government for meagre increase in the support price for crops. Addressing the media at CITU office here on Thursday, the farmer leaders said that compared to the rise in capital investment in farming, the hiked support price was much less. They reminded that the BJP government had promised to increase the support price as per recommendation of Swaminathan Commission.

Hes Been A Texas Supreme Court Justice For A Month Now Jimmy

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneGov. Greg Abbott swears in Jimmy Blacklock to replace Don Willett on the Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2017. Blacklock previously served as the governor’s general counsel.Jimmy Blacklock is new to this — so new that the card outside his Texas Supreme Court office still has the old occupant’s name on it; so new to the court that even his extensive collection of law books has yet to completely fill the wood shelves of his sunny office on the Capitol grounds; so new that the velcro hanging strips stuck on his walls do not yet bear decorations.   Blacklock, 37, has experience with the law — he boasts stints in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, the state attorney general’s office and as general counsel to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. But 2018 marks the first year he’ll sit on the bench. And it will also be his first time running a campaign — at least since his successful bid to lead the Yale Law Republicans (an uncontested race, as he recalls).Abbott appointed Blacklock to the state Supreme Court last month to fill a seat vacated by former Justice Don Willett, who left the state court to join the federal 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Willett’s term expires at the end of this year, thrusting Blacklock immediately into a partisan campaign to keep the new post.In that race, he’ll have to walk a familiar but ill-defined line, one his predecessors have become accustomed to treading. On the bench, he’ll be expected to serve as an impartial arbiter of justice — but on the side, he’ll have to wage a partisan campaign to keep his seat in an increasingly polarized state.Abbott gave him considerable room for error by selecting — and expressing his strong support for — Blacklock just before the filing deadline for the 2018 elections. That helped keep the field clear of Republican primary challengers, including one who had initially announced plans to run upon Willett’s confirmation. But Blacklock’s long-term future still requires a delicate balance that all judges in Texas must strike: Lean your weight too far on one side of that line and you risk your prized impartiality, or at least the appearance of it; fall off toward the other and you could fall out of favor with the Republican base.While working for Abbott, Blacklock fought on behalf of Texas leadership on many of the state’s most divisive partisan issues, including abortion, same-sex marriage and the Affordable Care Act. Now, he says he’s ready to transition from advocate to arbiter.“Most everybody who comes to the bench having been a lawyer has worked on all kinds of issues and advocated for all kinds of clients,” Blacklock said in an interview last week. “When you take that hat off and put on the judicial robe, you swear a solemn oath to the Constitution, to perform that role fairly and impartially — to look only to the laws and the Constitution.”But Blacklock has already put toes on either side of that line. On his website, he touts his “conservative record” advocating for the “right to life,” the Second Amendment and religious liberty. He also pledges to “never exceed the limited role assigned to the judiciary” — to take each case on its merits “accurately and impartially.”In the last several days, Blacklock’s website has undergone numerous changes, including the removal of phrases like “lifelong conservative Republican” and “Republican from a young age,” as well as references to his work as a Republican precinct chairman and election judge. A page titled “Jimmy’s Conservative Record” — a link that used to appear on his website’s home page — is no longer prominently featured, though the page remains live.Blacklock said Monday that he and his staff “just needed to simplify and streamline the website.” And while Abbott is helping him politically, Blacklock’s old boss isn’t helping him project impartiality. Last month, Blacklock joined Abbott at the annual “Texas Rally For Life,” where the newly-minted justice’s presence was unusual, although not unheard of. More striking were the governor’s remarks about his appointee.Abbott had already praised Blacklock as something of a known quantity. In November, he said,  “I wanted to make sure that the person I appointed was going to make decisions that I know how they are going to decide.” But before a crowd of several thousand in Austin, the governor added specificity to that praise.“I don’t have to guess or wonder how Justice Blacklock is going to decide cases because of his proven record of fighting for pro-life causes,” Abbott said.That was a disturbing statement for some lawyers, legal ethicists and judges — especially given Abbott’s past as a Texas Supreme Court justice himself. The Texas Supreme Court rarely hears abortion-related cases. Even still, any indication that a judge has pre-decided an outcome could cross a bright legal line.“The governor should know better. The governor is essentially saying: ‘Let me tell you, this guy will always rule in a certain way,’” said James Alfini, the former dean of South Texas College of Law Houston and the co-author of Judicial Conduct and Ethics, a guide for judges. “And that’s wrong. Just plain wrong. He’s basically destroyed any image of impartiality on that issue that he might have.”In his undecorated office last week, Blacklock walked those statements back on behalf of his mentor.“What I take the governor to mean — what I know he means — is that, because I worked for him for many years, he is confident that I mean what I say when I talk about my judicial philosophy,” Blacklock said. “I will be the kind of judge who looks only to the text of the Constitution and the text of the laws, and does not go beyond that to impose my own personal views on these cases.”Blacklock’s difficult position is nothing new. Partisan judicial elections in Texas have long drawn criticism, with some of the harshest words coming from former and sitting justices themselves. Texas is one of just seven states that elects Supreme Court justices in partisan races.In recent years, there have been several legal and legislative challenges to the current system. Just this week, a case went to trial in federal court over the issue, questioning whether the statewide system of judicial elections dilutes the voting power of Texas Latinos.Nathan Hecht, the state Supreme Court’s current chief, criticized partisan elections in his 2017 State of the Judiciary speech, saying “judicial independence is the casualty” of an increasingly harsh political climate. And Willett, Blacklock’s predecessor, was one of the most vocal critics.“Our imperfect system requires judicial candidates to put on their game face, get over their delicate sensibilities, and run unabashedly the way Texas law defines them: as politicians,” Willett told the San Antonio Express-News in 2012. He added that “how you run should never impact how you rule.”But even Willett ran explicitly partisan campaigns himself. In a 2012 campaign ad, Willett touted his reputation as the state’s “most conservative justice,” and “the judicial remedy to Obamacare.” He also said he “fought the liberals” who wanted to remove the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.Blacklock wouldn’t weigh in on the system of partisan elections — when asked, he chewed on his words carefully and highlighted the need to balance judicial independence with accountability to voters.“This is the system we have in our Constitution,” he said.Whatever he thinks of that method, it will shape his work off the court — and he’ll be expected to keep it from affecting his work on the court. “The main challenge is balancing the important work of the court with the demands of the campaign,” Blacklock said. “I swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution by applying the law to these cases to the best of my ability. That has to be my primary focus at all times — even though I’m running for office.”“It doesn’t leave time for hanging things on the walls,” he said with a laugh.last_img read more

Jewish meeting highlights antiSemitism in Hungary

first_img Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Objections have also been made to the government’s failure to step up against a growing cult around Admiral Miklos Horthy, Hungary’s autocratic leader from the 1920s through most of World War II. Horthy statues and busts have been unveiled in several towns.JEWISH LIFE IN HUNGARYRonald Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, says “there is much more Jewish life but there’s also more hatred, more anti-Semitism” in Hungary. He fears Jews will start to leave the country if things fail to improve.Rabbi Slomo Koves of the Chabad Lubavitch Community also mentioned the deteriorating public discourse in Hungary but highlights some of the new laws meant to crack down on hate speech. While listing examples of expanding Jewish life in Hungary _ new schools, reopened synagogues, popular cultural festivals _ he warned against drawing too close parallels between anti-Semitism now and that of the Holocaust era.“We are holding far from that and I don’t like these types of metaphors because they are pretty dangerous,” Koves said. He said he preferred to focus on educating youth about the Holocaust while depending on the new laws to counter anti-Jewish outbursts. Top Stories Even if he was more critical, Lauder was also hopeful that the atmosphere will turn for the better for the estimated 100,000 Jews in Hungary, the third-largest Jewish community in Europe.“If Hungary had less anti-Semitism, it could blossom,” Lauder said.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

With an overwhelming majority in Parliament, Orban has pushed to centralize power, expanding his and his party’s control over the media, the central bank and other institutions.ATTACKS IN HUNGARYIn past months vandals have damaged Jewish cemeteries and Holocaust memorials and sprayed swastikas on synagogues in Hungary.The chairman of the Raoul Wallenberg Association, which promotes tolerance, was also beaten and had his nose broken by thugs at a Budapest sports stadium. Thugs attacked Ferenc Orosz on April 28 after he asked them to stop shouting the “Sieg Heil” Nazi salute during a soccer match. Although Orosz is a Calvinist, he said his attackers believed he was Jewish. The men also poured beer on Orosz’s 21-year-old son. Police are investigating the case.BOOKS AND STATUESOrban’s government has also drawn criticism for adding authors linked to anti-Semitism to the country’s school curriculum. Among them is Jozsef Nyiro, a writer who served as a lawmaker in the Hungarian parliament during its World War II alliance with Nazi Germany. BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) – Right-wing extremists shout Nazi salutes and attack a man they believe is Jewish. Black-booted militants frighten aging Holocaust survivors. Writings of authors linked to a pro-Nazi regime are recommended reading for school children. Hungary is seeing a rise in anti-Semitism, something the prime minister is now vowing to fight.Prime Minister Viktor Orban told a gathering of Jewish representatives Sunday that anti-Semitism is “unacceptable and intolerable.” The meeting of the World Jewish Congress is being held in Budapest to draw attention to a rise in anti-Semitism in this Eastern European country. Here’s a look at recent developments: Sponsored Stories BLACK BOOTSMuch of the recent trouble began with Hungary’s 2010 election, when disillusioned voters made the extremist right-wing party Jobbik the third-largest force in Parliament. Though Jobbik doesn’t have the power to pass laws, it gained a stage for its anti-Semitic _ and anti-Gypsy _ rhetoric.Jobbik lawmaker Marton Gyongyosi called last year for lists to be drawn up of government members and lawmakers with Jewish origins, claiming they could present a “national security risk.”The party also had an affiliated militia, the Hungarian Guard, whose members marched in black uniforms reminiscent of the Nazi era, intimidating Roma and elderly Jewish Holocaust survivors in Budapest and in villages. Orban’s government banned the Guard but its members still show up at Jobbik events.On Saturday the party staged an “anti-Zionist” demonstration to protest the presence of the World Jewish Congress. A police attempt to ban the rally was overturned by the court. “Only a show of strength is effective against the unscrupulous Zionist advance,” Gyongyosi told 1,000 people at the rally.THE PRIME MINISTEROrban’s party, Fidesz, competes for some of its votes with Jobbik and has been accused during three years in power of doing too little to fight Jobbik’s anti-Semitism. Recently, however, Orban has taken several steps, like a ban on certain public uses of Nazi and communist symbols such as the swastika and the red cross, and tighter controls on hate speech.
