Hungary pledges it won't tolerate anti-Semitism

BUDAPEST - Hungary will use all political and legal tools available to crack down on resurgent anti-Semitism in the country, the deputy prime minister said on Tuesday, in one of the government's boldest statements yet on the issue.
"We cannot allow, especially knowing our own responsibility, anti-Semitism to gain strength in Hungary," Tibor Navracsics told a conference on European anti-Semitism in the parliament building in Budapest.
"We will crack down with legal means if necessary and, while we can, we will make sure through political means that Hungary remains a republic of good men."
