    I'm still wondering why the Western Europeans are more keen on sanctions upon Russia, and especially Hungary, and Poland, rather than upon Israel.

    Hungary, and Poland haven't done much wrong in comparison to Israel shooting into crowds, and it's inhumane buffer zone with armed guards who shoot at Palestinians, then there's Israel's jailing of African refugees.

    As for Russia, it's striking in Syria, just like Israel has. (Might be one offense for both sides)

    But, ultimately the sanctions upon Russia come from invading a Russian majority territory of Crimea, as opposed to Israel since 1948 oppressing, and still stealing from Palestinian majority lands.

    Poland has vowed to protect Hungary against EU sanctions, one day after the Polish president belittled Europe in a speech.

    "Poland will vote against any sanctions on Hungary in the forum of European institutions," the Polish foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday (12 September).

    The European Parliament's vote, earlier the same day, to trigger a sanctions procedure against Hungary over its violations of EU values and rule of law, was "disturbing" the Polish ministry said.

    "Every EU member state has the sovereign right to implement internal reforms that it considers to be right," it added.

    The statement comes after the European Commission last year launched the same punitive procedure against Poland for the same reasons.

    Well, it's hardly surprising that sanctions get put more upon enemies than friends, isn't it?

    In terms of Hungary, it's different than what the US does. This is an "internal matter".

    The little i know of it Poland is saying No Sanctions on Hungary who is denying 'muslim' entry to Hungary . EU was trying to punish Hungary for not exhibiting 'stupid euro immigration values' and sounds like POLAND can VETO and say No Sanctions allowed . If i understand . Good for Poland , Hungary , the Italians and a few others i have heard about [Czechs maybe] that are working against 'muslim' entry to their lands .

    That's like saying the Republicans don't see the Democrats as enemies because they're in NATO and the US.

    Should the time ever come, Hungary would have Poland's back.
