Iranian City, Elements of Hungary’s neo-Fascist Jobbik Party Allying

COMMENT: In an alliance of “Yockeyite” or Third Position character, a city controlled by the Hungarian Jobbik Party and an Iranian city have announced a cooperative agreement.

 Recapitulating Hungary’s fascist past to a considerable extent, the Jobbik Party on its surface would seem to have little in common with Iran, other than anti-Semitism.

In announcing the agreement, Jobbik leader Gabor Vona noted the West’s disagreements with Iran and indicated that he hoped the Jobbik/Iranian alliance would signal a beginning of an end to that antipathy.

The union does call to mind a number of variants of fascism uniting Western and Third World elements in an anti-American, anti-Semitic alliance. The doctrine espoused by Francis Parker Yockey, the “Third Position” (described in Miscellaneous Archive Shows M19 and M21) and numerous  “Red-Brown” political alliances encompass this dynamic.

Third Positionists, in particular, glorify Iran and the Shiite theocracy has, in turn, formed political alliances with European fascists of various stripes. Achmed Huber of the al-Taqwa bank embodies this type of political philosophy.

EXCERPT: The potholed streets leading to Tiszavasvari’s rusty train station offer no clue that this sleepy town of 12,000 in eastern Hungary is considered the “capital of Jobbik,” the country’s ultranationalist, anti-Jewish party whose name means “better.”

The first sign appears near the office of the mayor, Erik Fulop, the first of five Jobbik politicians elected to run a Hungarian municipality. Shortly after taking office in 2010, Fulop set up a twinning arrangement between Tiszavasvari and the Iranian city of Ardabil, and a sign in Hungarian and Farsi near the office celebrates those ties.

Observers say the announcement of the twinning arrangement was the first international event held in Hungary under Jobbik’s auspices and a mark of a growing partnership aimed at breaking through the isolation that both the party and the Iranian government are laboring under — Iran for its suspected nuclear weapons program and support for terrorism, Jobbik for its hyper-nationalism and anti-Semitism. . . .
