Hun­gar­i­an Job­bik Par­ty Mem­bers on Parade

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.

“Iran and Hun­gar­i­an Par­ty Form Anti-Semit­ic Alliance” by Cnaan Lip­schiz [JTA]; Times of Israel; 3/11/2013.

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. . . .
