Largely as a consequence of Kun's 133 days in power, the counterrevolutionary government of Admiral Miklos Horthy
was both anticommunist and anti-Semitic, communists and Jews being, in the traumatized minds of many Hungarians, interchangeable identities; that was something that John never forgot.
Netanyahu has also formed a close alliance with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has lavished praise on Miklos Horthy

He has been engaged in a similar bromance with Viktor Orban, the ultra-nationalist prime minister of Hungary, who barely veils his Jew-baiting and has eulogized Miklos Horthy
, a Hungarian leader who collaborated with the Nazis.
By the 1930s, Hungary, under its "regent" Admiral Miklos Horthy
, former commander-in-chief of the Austro-Hungarian navy, had become increasingly dependent economically upon Germany, which led to the rise of the Nyilaskeresztes Part--Hungarista Mozgalom ("Arrow Cross Party--Hungarist Movement), an ultra nationalist, pro-German party backed by Hitler.
Last summer, just before Netanyahu went to Budapest for a summit to meet with Orban as well as the leaders of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the Hungarian prime minister praised Miklos Horthy
, who was Hungary's leader during World War II when 600,000 of the country's 800,000 Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.

He's on the record as saying Miklos Horthy
, the Hungarian leader who cooperated with the Nazis, was an "exceptional statesman".
Its leader, Admiral Horthy
, went along with Hitler's anti-Semitic policies, sacrificing rural Hungarian Jews while protecting most urban Jews, especially those in Budapest.
