Israel’s media is biased, the Hungarian nationalist party Jobbik told The Jerusalem Post on Friday.

Replying to a request for an interview with party leaders sent by the Post earlier this year, a party spokesman said that his organization has had “negative past experiences concerning the Israeli media” and asserted that “we cannot hope for a non-biased interview.”

Hungary’s third-largest parliamentary faction, Jobbik has been described as a “neo-Nazi” party and “a fundamental threat to Hungary’s democracy” by the World Jewish Congress.

Earlier this year Jobbik chairman Gabor Vona accused President Shimon Peres of praising Jews for buying property in Hungary.

“The Israeli conquerors, these investors, should look for another country in the world for themselves, because Hungary is not for sale,” Vona told supporters during a protest in May.
