    As a politician known for his anti-Semitic attitude, Csanad Szegedi was caught by surprise when he discovered his own Jewish roots.

    (BUDAPEST, Hungary) — As a rising star in Hungary’s far-right Jobbik Party, Csanad Szegedi was notorious for his incendiary comments on Jews: He accused them of “buying up” the country, railed about the “Jewishness” of the political elite and claimed Jews were desecrating national symbols.

    Then came a revelation that knocked him off his perch as ultra-nationalist standard-bearer: Szegedi himself is a Jew.

    Following weeks of Internet rumors, Szegedi acknowledged in June that his grandparents on his mother’s side were Jews — making him one too under Jewish law, even though he doesn’t practice the faith. His grandmother was an Auschwitz survivor and his grandfather a veteran of forced labor camps.

    I don't see the connection. Not saying that Jews are bad or anything, but there's no logical connection between the news story and the revelation.

    Should a person stop bashing Nazis just because he found out that his grandparent was a Nazi? If he really fervently believes in what he says and is not saying it just for publicity, he will continue the Jew-baiting.

    Well, his lack of consciousness of his family background reveals his intellectual carelessness if not outright dishonesty (it reeks of opportunism if you ask me). For someone who likes to preach about the evils of other people (Jews) he should have examined first his own lineage before he made a living out of spouting attacks against it. An acknowledgment (not necessarily an apology as it's not his fault that he is born partly Jew) would have been in order so that his followers are made aware of that part of his lineage.

    Descent returns to bite!

    If a persons' parent(s) were Nazis and one hates Nazis even so, that person should openly say this parent(s) were Nazi, but they were wrong.

    And then that person, with a clear conscience, go bashing Nazis.

    Just my view!
