ht Prime Minister Viktor Orbán claimed the population of Europe is being replaced and that financial speculators like US billionaire George Soros are hoping to profit from the 'ruination' of the continent.
In a discussion on the growing number of migrants flooding into Balkan countries on public Kossuth Radio on Friday, Orbán warned that Europe was seeing a new wave of migration.
He claimed it was necessary to fight Soros and his 'army' to prevent a 'multicultural Europe' because 'we do not want to mix with others.'
In response to press reports that Soros' organisations are in every Balkan country, Orbán declared: 'It's worth fighting against a force that is stronger than us – against a force like George Soros and his army.
'We've played a role in this network being exposed, as we brought it out into the open, and now they have to openly state their goals. They want immigration.
'The replacement of populations and peoples is under way in Europe, partly because speculators like George Soros can make large financial profits.
'They are set on the ruination of Europe, because they're hoping for large profits.
As well as profits, Orbán also insisted that an ideological motivation for the creation of a multicultural Europe.
He said: 'On the other hand, there is also an ideological motivation: they believe in a multicultural Europe; they don't like Christian Europe; they don't like the traditions of a Christian Europe; and they definitely don't like Christians.
'They believe that if they mix us with some other kind of people we'll be more beautiful, we'll look better, and Europe will be a better place in which to live.
'We, however, do not want to mix with others.'
He added that the current rising tide of mass migration poses a challenge for Hungary's neighbours.
'We are indeed seeing signs of a new migration wave, of a rising tide following a low tide; it's rising now, and this poses a challenge,' he said.
'We've managed to ensure that now every migrant knows that they shouldn't follow the path marked by the signpost pointing to Hungary.
'This is good, but it won't protect our neighbours, and as we also need stable neighbours we must provide them with help.'
It comes after Orbán's government proposed legislation, to be voted on later this month, which would criminalise the act of helping asylum-seekers.
Leading Hungarian non-governmental organisations denounced the so-called 'Stop Soros' package of bills that could see activists and lawyers jailed.
The measures would allow courts to pass criminal sentences including jail terms of up to one year on individuals for aiding asylum-seekers.
Representatives from prominent local NGOs called the proposals 'an attack against human rights defenders'.
Parliament should 'drop the idea of criminalising our work which is in solidarity with asylum-seekers and refugees', Julia Ivan, head of Amnesty International in Hungary, told a press conference outside parliament.
'We do what we have to do, we are not criminals,' she said.
The government says the laws are aimed at persons helping undeserving migrants to acquire refugee status, for example if those persons were not in immediate danger before entering Hungary, or who entered the country illegally.
Named after the liberal Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros, the measures are the government's latest broadside against the 87-year-old, who has long been accused by the fiercely anti-immigration Orbán of facilitating migration into Europe.
The run-up to a parliamentary election in April, which Orbán's ruling Fidesz party won by a landslide, was dominated by anti-migrant and anti-Soros messaging on pro-government media.
After the vote, Orbán vowed to clampdown on NGOs, whose staff he called 'Soros mercenaries'.
According to Marta Pardavi, co-chair of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, a group providing free legal aid to asylum-seekers, Stop Soros is meant 'to stigmatise, intimidate, and sanction human rights defenders' work'.
The measures are 'unacceptable,..and should have no place in a democratic country that is run by the rule-of-law', Pardavi told the press conference.
The UNHCR refugee agency has also called on the government to withdraw the plans.
They 'would significantly restrict the ability of NGOs and individuals to support asylum-seekers and refugees', it said in a statement.
The EU's rights watchdog, the Venice Commission, has also begun a probe into the laws' compliance with EU values, and is due to give its opinion later in June.
The NGOs have pledged to use all legal means to challenge the legislation, depending on the final version approved by parliament, including bringing cases before the Hungarian constitutional court and the EU courts.
NGOs bringing so called refugees into Europe are nothing more than people smugglers and should be jailed now, those people who have been attacked , raped or trafficked should sue them through the courts for every penny they have.
