It is no secret that Hungary has become one of the safest countries in the world. While Western Europe opened its borders and accelerated its Islamisation during the migrant crisis, Eastern Europe did the opposite.
Western Europe’s governments actively try to cover-up migrant crimes but there’s no denying reality: in a lot of countries it’s a big problem and countries like Germany, Belgium and Sweden are even losing control over it.
Viktor Orbán puts Hungarians first and Hungary’s excellent border controls make our fear of terror almost absent
What a lot of people wouldn’t have dreamed of predicting for decades is now happening: An increasing number of people are not moving from Eastern Europe to Western Europe, but in the opposite direction.
The Dutch family Bastiaensen, who owned a vacation home in Hungary, realised that the city of Budapest was safer than their Dutch capital Amsterdam. The combination of Hungary’s lower taxes and the fact that there are no Muslims made them decide to immigrate to the country.
The family says Hungary’s prime minister is doing a great job: “Viktor Orbán puts Hungarians first and Hungary’s excellent border controls make our fear of terror almost absent.”
According to the family at least three hundred Dutch and Belgians have bought houses near the town of Csemö. “All our neighbours are Dutch and it’s pleasant to have other Dutch people near us.”
Two of my clients said that they were fleeing from refugees
Several estate agents confirm the experience of the family. Dutch estate agent Robert Kemers says that at least a thousand Belgians now live in Hungary and that since the start of the migrant crisis the number of inquiries is surging. “After every terror attack we see a spike in the number of website visits” he says.
It’s not just the Dutch and the Belgians, but also Germans and people from Scandinavia see Hungary as a safe haven within the European Union. “They come from Austria too” the estate agent adds. A Belgian estate agent says about it: “Two of my clients said that they were fleeing from refugees and that they needed a house in Hungary.”
Eight in ten people who call me say that they want to leave Germany because of its migrant policy
German estate agent Ottmar Heide tells somewhat the same story: Eight in ten people who call me say that they want to leave Germany because of its migrant policy.
With the continuation of Europe’s migration crisis and the return of ISIS from Syria, it is to be expected that migration from Western Europe to Eastern Europe will continue.
With a little bit of drama the question could be asked if these people are the first ‘refugees’ who have fled from Western Europe’s failed multicultural project to a safe haven in Eastern Europe.
