Reader feedback: Hungarians in Slovak-occupied Hungary

Re: Reader feedback: Hungarians in Slovakia should accept country as their own, Vol. 12 No. 35, Sept. 4-10

Why are we Hungarians in Slovakia at all? We are actually in Slovak-occupied Hungary. That is how 15 million Hungarians understand the situation, and why there is a problem in the first place. Thanks to the meddling of British and French imperialists, who never had any idea of the ethnic complexities of Central and Eastern Europe, today we see Hungarians in Slovakia and Serbia being victimised, intimidated and physically beaten up by mobs of Magyar haters.
