Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania, in coordination with Israel, today blocked a joint EU statement criticizing the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, Israeli officials and European diplomats told me.

WNU Editor: The media narrative on Hungary for the past few months is one of it becoming anti-Semitic under Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Hmmmm .... it makes you wonder on who are the real anti-Semites.
