Where is the outrage over this massive fence to keep bad immigrants out?

There is nothing like a bit of Euro hypocrisy.

This week has seen worldwide outrage against President Donald Trump and his temporary ban on people entering the United States from seven mostly Muslim countries.

There have been demonstrations across the globe and a petition here trying to stop the President’s State visit to the UK has been signed more than 1.8 million times.

As an observer of international politics for many decades, I believe that Trump’s move to ban certain Muslims from travelling to the U.S. is inept, morally wrong and, above all, a propaganda gift to violent Islamic organisations such as Isis and Al Qaeda.

That said, I am utterly appalled by the behaviour of many of those who are condemning Trump.

Most egregious is the hypocrisy of the leaders of many EU countries, including Angela Merkel and her cheerleaders among the British liberal elite. Their hypocrisy turns my stomach.

For the truth is that their anger over the new President’s ban is outrageously two-faced.  

Let me spell out the facts. Many European politicians treat migrants — and, in particular, Muslims — more disgracefully than they are being dealt with by Trump.

For example, Hungary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, wants to build a ‘massive’ fence to stop refugees crossing into his country from the East. He calls migrants ‘a poison’ that Hungary ‘won’t swallow’.

Why hasn’t he been subjected to the kind of chorus of opprobrium from those European liberals who greeted Trump’s move to tighten America’s borders? Why have fellow EU leaders not shunned Orban as a racist and a xenophobe?

Instead, he is seen as a valued colleague and friend. His Fidesz party is in the same political grouping in the European Parliament as Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrats. They work together at European summits, planning a common strategy.

Yet this man is much more bigoted than Trump. But do we ever hear talk of banning Orban from travelling to Brussels?

Was there a whisper of dissent when he visited London in November to see Theresa May? Does Nick Clegg make strident Commons speeches about the pernicious Hungarian?

Of course not.

Not a mutter, not a murmur, not a mention.

The objectionable Orban is not alone. The Prime Minister of neighbouring Slovakia, Robert Fico, said last year that Islam had ‘no place’ in his country. He speaks of the need to ‘monitor every Muslim’ and won’t let a single Muslim refugee enter his country.

With other chilling views — such as describing journalists as ‘dirty, anti-Slovak prostitutes’ — he almost makes Trump sound like an Islington Leftie.

Again, where are the denunciations of this man (who has the gall to call himself a Social Democrat) from Mrs Merkel, Labour’s Yvette Cooper, who this week urged the Government to have the ‘guts to speak out’ over Trump’s immigration ban, the liberal Left or the Guardian newspaper?

I have searched hard and I can’t find evidence that European leaders have ever criticised Prime Minister Fico, whose country took its turn last year to assume the EU Presidency.

As for Jeremy Corbyn, despite saying he is ‘not concerned about numbers’ of migrants, he (along with his fellow Socialist, President Francois Hollande of France) is a member of the same European political group as the virulently anti-immigration Slovakian prime minister.

Incidentally, Hollande’s criticism of Trump has been ferocious, while Corbyn has joined the clamour for Trump’s State visit to Britain to be cancelled.

Yesterday, I scoured the internet for any condemnation by either Hollande or Corbyn of their bigoted fellow European Socialist party leader. I couldn’t find even a veiled criticism of an inflammatory man who has vowed to stop Muslims ‘destroying the cultural identity of Europe’. It is very plain that a double standard is operating.

Whereas bigotry from European leaders is tolerated, Trump is demonised for fulfilling his campaign promises.

No one does hypocrisy quite like a socialist.

The bottom line is this, Islam is not compatible with Western liberal ideals, freedom of speech and tolerance. They are intolerant
