Pope warns of lurking anti-Semitism in Hungary trip

Pope Francis warned of “lurking” anti-Semitism in Europe during a visit Sunday to Hungary, where he met populist Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Speaking to Christian and Jewish leaders, Francis said that the threat of anti-Semitism is “still lurking in Europe and elsewhere,” according to the BBC. “This is a fuse that must not be allowed to burn. And the best way to defuse it is to work together, positively, and to promote fraternity,” he said.

Orbán’s government has been accused of fanning the flames of anti-Semitism, as well as Islamophobia and homophobia. In 2017, his government faced heavy criticism for posting thousands of billboards around the country featuring a picture of financier George Soros, who is Jewish, and the slogan “Let’s not let Soros have the last laugh.” Orbán has dismissed allegations of anti-Semitism leveled against him.
