What is so funny is that Israel could probably kick the ever loving crap out of Spain any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Like same day dry cleaning.....in by 9, out by 5.
Send in the IDF!!!
Notice that most antisemitism comes from the left not the right.
Spain is fast approaching the status of a 3rd World Country.
They have more unemployed than most African Countries. They have a useless Leftist Prime Minister who was literally put into power by Osama bin Laden. Aggressive secularism has become their new state-religion. They have implemented ridiculous socialist economic schemes that would rival China in the 1960’s or Zimbabwe in the 1990’s for stupidity.
This is why the USA must get out of NATO soonest. We must not become infected by such places.
The Spaniards are going to need to know how they “feel” about the Muslims in their midst in a very short while.
Same ol' same ol'. Jews--the all purpose scapegoat-- one size fits all, apparently.
No one expects the Inquisition. Its back?
Franco was the best thing that ever happened to Spain:
Overall, per some estimates, during World War II, Franco’s policies saved the lives of almost 200,000 European Jews.
“Spain emerged as one of the most anti-Semitic countries in the European Union in 2010”
I think the writer does not know history, not even Spanish history; because the history of a dominance of Spanish antisemitism begins in the year 1492.
In the web page at the following link is a map showing expulsions of Jews from various European countries from 1100-1600

That’s what happens when you elect a communist as your leader - same in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Russia, and Bolivia, to name a current few examples.
Moslems in, Jews out!
Next: the return of the Spanish Inquisition. Coming to a torture chamber near you.
This is understandable. Islam is the second-largest religion in Spain, and growing fast.
But just as Spaniards get smug about their self-perceived racial superiority, along comes a study which says that many Spanish anti-Semites actually have Jewish blood. An examination of the genetic signatures of the Spanish population shows that 20% of contemporary Spaniards have Jewish origins. As it turns out, far fewer Jews than previously thought complied with the Edict of Expulsion in 1492, by which the estimated 800,000 Jews in Spain were ordered to leave the country. Many of them simply converted to Roman Catholicism instead.
Many of those so-called conversos tried to blend in by adopting surnames that indicated trades or professions. One such Sephardic name is Zapatero, which means shoemaker.
It reminds of a funny story from WW2 about SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, known as
the Hangman. Seems subconscious concern over his ethnicity drove him to waste a mirror one night:
Heydrich's ruthless diligence and the rapid success of the SD earned him a quick rise through the SS ranks - appointed SS Major by December, 1931, then SS Colonel with sole control of the SD by July of 1932. In March of 1933, he was promoted to SS Brigadier General, though not yet 30 years old.
The only stumbling block occurred as the old rumors surfaced about possible Jewish ancestry on his father's side of his family. Heydrich's grandmother had married for a second time (after the birth of Heydrich's father) to a man with a Jewish sounding name.
Both Hitler and Himmler quickly became aware of the rumors which were spread by Heydrich's enemies within the Nazi Party. Himmler at one point considered expelling Heydrich from the SS. But Hitler, after a long private meeting with Heydrich, described him as "a highly gifted but also very dangerous man, whose gifts the movement had to retain...extremely useful; for he would eternally be grateful to us that we had kept him and not expelled him and would obey blindly."
Thus Heydrich remained in the elite Aryan order but was haunted by the persistent rumors and as a result developed tremendous hostility toward Jews. Heydrich also suffered great insecurity and some degree of self loathing, exampled by an incident in which he returned home to his apartment after a night of drinking, turned on a light and saw his own reflection in a wall mirror then took out his pistol and fired two shots at himself in the mirror, uttering "filthy Jew!"
At the time of the Inquisition, almost half the population of Spain was Jewish.
Many still have Jewish surnames, as do many who were expelled & went to S AmericA & other Spanish colonies.
It is a disgrace, & the Leftist Zapatero shares much of the blame for stirring up these ancient batters.
Barry must be planning a State Dinner for his fellow anti-Semite Zapatero.
Is this the afterglow of the glorious days of the Islamic Caliphate-and Cordoba? I seem to recall Christopher Columbus making some reference to the defeat of the Mahattmodans, somewhere in his diaries? Or was the Spanish form of Christianity the weaker brother to begin with? My reading of the letter that we suppose were written by the Apostle Paul
raised a Jew, trained as a Pharisee—his letter to the believers at Rome (Romans) suggests G-d has NOT cut/broken off
His beloved people.If G-d ain’t done with the Jews -Salvation must yet come from Jerusalem.And Jerusalem Not Spain will prove our salvation.
