CWN Editor's Note: “Hungary has already suffered a major attack from Islam in the 16th century, and we have very bad memories because the Church was completely destroyed,” said Bishop András Veres, president of the Hungarian Bishops’ Conference. “Now, people fear a new shift towards Islam.” The prelate made his remarks after the European Parliament condemned some of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s policies.
