This does not sound plausible in light of the fact that the original
protest came from the Hungarians in Transylvania in the first place!
Why would they raise such an international alarm over what you describe

This is the first time I've heard your version of the story.
It needs a bit of corraboration before I take it more seriously than the

Well, PERCEPTIONS are REAL to those who have it.  But why do you think
it was only perception and it was not real?  I know it was REAL in 1967,
so why couldn't it be so 10 years earlier?  Mind you, I am not blaming
the Jews for that.  After all, most of the earlier processing was due to
their own Jewish charitable organizations, such as JOIN.  But I can see
how the ones stuck in the camps could have percieved it that it was
delaying their own admittance in host countries.

I think you are contradicting yourself here when you admit that the mob

With or without Ceausescu's efforts, my comment is still true.  And it
was true in 1918, the year when Ceausescu was born, as well.

Dealing with smaller areas, where the Romanians are in minority would 
mean creating ethnic enclaves.  We have enough examples of how this
creates far more problems than it solves.

The real solution is local autonomy for _everybody_.  Unfortunately, HDRU
(UDMR/RMDSZ) didn't want to join its efforts to the rest of the opposition
to achieve this goal and preferred to fight alone for a solution only for
the Hungarian minority.  They will never succeed, even if the opposition
will win the next elections.

Brilliant.  Have you ever heard of the party called Hungarian Democratic
Union of Romania (or something like this, the Hungarian initials are RMDSZ).
This party represents the Hungarians in Romania and _none_ of its members
is Romanian.  This party won about 7% of the votes at the last general
elections and has a corresponding number of seats in the Romanian

   I don't think it is that diffrent and this is why:
     1.  When/How a subculture comes to exist has no effect on how they react 
to the political situation as long as they are the same in other respects.  
This means that the law in the US is ment to prevent a subculture that cannot 
interact or will not interact with the larger culture because of a language 
     2.  This situation could exist in Romania where hungarian communities 
keep to them selves and dont even learn Romanian.  NOTE:  I am not claiming 
this is the case now (it may be but I don't know) but it is the argument that 
I was speaking of.

   Now that I have made that argument I would like to point out that I don't 
think that the threts posed by such a subculture (in the US)are of large enugh 
magntude to warrent all the ngeative effect of the bill in question.

Not that I disagree with you main point that a seprat transylvania as Wally 
was referring to is unrealistic.  But, I do disagree with this point.  The 
very nature of eastern europe and europe as a whole is one of sepratism.  
America was populated by so many ethnic groups that the lines dividing them 
blended and a new culture was born.  In europe a German moving into a difrent 
country will live with Germans there and in 100 years their children will 
still be looked at by them selves and others around them as german. The same 
is true of almost any culture in europe.  I would say that the sepritism in 
canada is not a result of american culture but of european culture that is 
trying stay european.

I dare him also. Concerning the "autonomous province" of Quebec, the Anglo-
oppressors were able to utilize the imports, aka "ethnics" to keep the
country whole. Much to the chagrin of the Anglos, they will have to raise
the immigration quota here. The sweet irony is that Canadian-borns don't
know how to keep their country whole, so they have to import outsiders to
save us from ourselves. Tibet has imported a lot of Chinese and this serves
to keep Tibet "autonomous." within China.

I was last in Romania in 1982, the time after British forces had just 
relieved Galtieri's forces of their responsibilities in the Falklands 
(which was a very big talking point then), visiting relatives in
Kolozsvar and Csikszereda (in your mentioned Harghita). I've since confined 
my visits to Hungary. The paranoia in Romania was surrealistic; Hungary was 
already considered *The West* by all *Romanian citizens* I met then. Has 
anything really changed?

Dear peoples of Hungary.

For 20 years now, I have been able to enjoy your rich culture in Canada 
and *wonderful* food.  I am the son of a hungarian immigrant into canada 
who moved in the 50's.  Something has been bothering me for a few years 
now (mainly since my mother's death)...

My mother's side of the family is predominaty british, and they all seem 
to not include me and my father in family activities "due to our ethnic 
culture".  I am not even allowed to see my cousins anymore.

Has anybody had to face this inhumanity?  How do I deal with it.  I get 
so angry just thinking about it, but I rely on my ability to teach math 
and computers as tutoring at my college in Owen Sound, Ontario.

Could I get some helpful advice from anybody out there?

Are you implying there are no homosexual Russians?

I think that's very narrow minded of you.  Homosexuality, while more 
popular in America, is not an exclusively American phenomenon.

Now that Communism has loosened up media censorship in the former Soviet 
Union, Russians can enjoy pornography, pedophilia, sodomy, and all kinds of 
American indoor sports!

I would think the gay community would take a nod from the Billy Gramm 
crusade and use this opportunity to force their lifestyle on unsuspecting 

In much the same way they have forced it on us here in America.

A similar "vote" did take place in 1919 in Alba Iulia. For some reason, 
Romanians living in Transylvania did not like to be part of Hungary. 

Looks very similar to the situation in Quebec. It is difficult for a 
national group to be part of a country where the central governement
decides what national standards  apply to education, culture, 
telecommunications, etc.

This is, of course, pure fabrication. 

Hunagry's assistance (as well as Poland's) was considered by Nazi
Germany to be essential in 1938 to the final carve up of Czechoslovakia.
Of course Hunagry took the opportunity to conquer southern Slovakia and 
to overrun the newly independent Ruthenia.

When Operation Barbarossa began, Hungary joined, but needed to convince 
Hitler to be incorporated, since the original plan had been for HUngary
to remain "neutral".

(See Shirer's book on the rise and fall of the Third Reich, for example)

It should also be noted that Hungary and Croatia were the last nations
still fighting together with Nazi Germany --- as late as May 1945. Every
other ally, coerced or otherwise, had "jumped ship" by then.

As odious as Nazi Germany is in retrospect, it was not seen as such in i
the 1930's by many nations. I have heard (but I do not know whether this
is true) that A. Hitler was "Time"'s Man of the Year sometime (1936?).
Certainly Hitler's Germany was viewed very positively in the anglophone world
for its firmly anti-Communist stand and many nations soughht to curry favour.

Hitler's Germany was seen by Horthy's Hungary as a natural ally. All this
is perfectly understandable, even to those who do not agree with such
political thoughts. Thne objecvtions are to the grounds for such
collusion and allegiance, not to the fact of them per se.

What is contemptible is the denial of these facts. Any honourable person 
would admit that Horthy's Hungary had backed the wrong horse.
