BUDAPEST - A far-right Hungarian priest said an "anti-Zionist" demonstration will be held in Budapest on the first day of the World Jewish Congress' General Assembly.

Lorant Hegedus Jr., a Calvinist priest and member of the ultrarightist, anti-Semitic Jobbik party, announced that an "Anti-Bolshevik and anti-Zionist people's gathering" will be held in the Hungarian capital on May 4, the first day of the WJC annual assembly.The WJC announced last month that it would hold its 2013 annual assembly May 4-6 in Budapest to show solidarity with Hungary's Jews, who are facing what organizers called "exceptionally strong" anti-Semitism. WJC rarely holds its congress outside of Jerusalem.
