nationalist government in Hungary
has indicted Hungarian Communist militia leader Bela Biszku for war crimes
committed against Hungarian patriots during the 1956 uprising against
the indictment, Biszku was a member of the Hungarian Socialist Worker’s Party
central committee and the Provisional Executive Committee, who organized
thugs and killers to root out political dissent in the wake of the Soviet
invasion that ended the uprising. According to the indictment, Biszku directed
the killing of the three civilians at the Budapest Western Station on December
6, 1956, directed a massacre of women and children in the city of Salgotarjan on December
8, 1956, and covered up the activities of Bolshevik death squads, which he was
apprised of in report issued April 9, 1957.

Hungarian patriots seized Budapest
and began hanging the Jewish Soviet commissars. The Soviet
Union responded with tanks. In the struggle that followed, 25,000
Hungarians and 7,000 Russian soldiers died. The Soviets then conducted a general
purge of Hungarian nationalists.
Hungarian Jobbik party won control of parliament, and began renationalizing Hungary and its
economy. Hungary has quickly
paid off its debts to the IMF, and is considering bringing charges against the
government officials who drove Hungary into debt and began selling
its people out to austerity. Jobbik has also advocated withdrawing Hungary from
the European Union.
arrest may be the first in a changing Europe, as nationalist parties make gains
across Europe. The nationalist Austrian
Freedom Party recently made huge gains in the Austrian parliament. The French
National Front may emerge as France’s
largest party in a series of pending elections, after winning a 56% majority in
an important southern French department. And, even in staid multi-culturalist Britain, the anti-EU, but not nationalist, UK
Independence Party has been contending to become Britain’s third largest party.
War II, both Allied and Soviet forces in Europe
committed atrocities, killing millions and dispossessing tens of millions more.
While much of the World War II generation is dying, the generation that
perpetrated the Communist war crimes of the 1950’s is very much alive--and ripe
to spend their last years in prison, like so many persecuted German soldiers. What is sauce for the goose may turn out to be sauce for the gander.
