In 2009 he said that: "I love Hungary, I love Hungarians, and I prefer Hungarian interests to global financial capital, or Jewish capital, if you like, which wants to devour the whole world, but especially Hungary." He later said that, it was only a response to a Shimon Peres speech in which Peres said that his country aims to "colonise" Hungary when he spoke of Israel's investments abroad, Peres said that Israel was "buying out Manhattan, Poland, Hungary..."[1][2]

Molnár also claimed that the language of instruction in Jerusalem schools was Hungarian and they were "learning the language of their future homeland." His party did not denounce his statement but simply said it was "embarrassing." Adding that he would not even consider ousting Molnár from his party or parliamentary faction, as the remark "did not violate the party's bylaws.".[3] However, in 2010 he was excluded from the Fidesz, due to these remarks. Instead of him, a Lebanese-origin doctor, Pierre Daher became the Fidesz candidate. Molnár later also claimed that pregnant Roma women deliberately try to induce birth defects so they can give birth to "fools to receive higher family subsidies. I have checked this and it’s true; they hit their bellies with a rubber hammer so that they’ll give birth to handicapped kids." In 2011, he denounced roma women at the Hungarian police authorities.[4]
