Hungary Olympic Committee gets Sochi terrorist threat

Russia Sochi Terrorism
BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The Hungarian Olympic Committee said on Wednesday it had received a letter containing a terrorist threat ahead of the upcoming winter Olympic Games in Sochi and that it had heard of others to other countries.

Committee chairman Zsolt Borkai told the national news agency said the Hungarians were taking the threat seriously, had notified the International Olympic Committee and the Russian organizers. He added he had knowledge of other countries' Olympic committees receiving similar threats.

HOC Secretary General Bence Szabo told the daily Nemzeti Sport that the IOC also received a similar letter, adding that an investigation has already begun.

"The information is true, unfortunately," Szabo said. "A letter written in Russian and English was received at the HOC's international e-mail account, threatening the Hungarian delegation to Sochi with terrorist acts.

"They also told us we had better stay home... Obviously the HOC will not make the decision on how seriously to take the threat or, God forbid, to stay away from the Olympics."

The Hungarian Olympic Committee's top officials could not be reached by Reuters immediately

They did not say if this threat came from Russia. It could have come from any of the neighboring countries which were created out of Hungary after WWI. The illegal Trianon treaty which displaced 2/3 of Hungary's population and 2/3 of it's territory. Now the neighboring countries want to do away with Hungary, forceably assimilating the Hungarians there and treating them worse than we have treated African Americans or Latinos.....

Hungary is a independant country and should never take such threats seriously, these people are
pathetic morons who need to be caught and shot on sight, I have faith that our Russian friends
will protect all the visitors attending the Olympic games.

It's also high time that muslim countries do more to wipe out radical islam before the entire Middle East has alienated itself from the rest of the world.
