Gomboes Hopes for Inter-denominational Amity Among Jews As Well As Christians

The hope that there will be interdenominational amity among Jews as well as Christians during the coming year is expressed by Premier Julius Gomboes of Hungary in a Christmas message to Hungarians in America issued through the Amerikai Magyar Nepsvava of New York.

Premier Gomboes, who was formerly the leader of the Hungarian anti-Semitic party, has repeatedly expressed his desire to treat the Jews on a parity with all other citizens of Hungary since he assumed office as Premier last September.

In his Christmas message, he declared: “In order to achieve Hungary’s rights, it is first of all necessary that our nation be united. As a believing Protestant, I fervently wish for interdenominational amity among our Christian as well as our Jewish citizenry. For I have known ever so many Jewish men of valor and other upright Jews, all of whom pray with us for the triumph of the Hungarian cause.”
