Prime Minister

Prime Minister Zapatero of Spain has come out with a blistering criticism of Israel, saying they are using "abusive force." He then showed his solidarity with the cause of the Palestinians by donning a Kaffiyeh.

You know, like Arafat used to wear.

Like the terrorists wear.

And, what is the Palestinian cause with which Zapatero feels solidarity? Both the PLO Charter and the Hamas Charter unequivocally call for the destruction of the Jewish state. So, that's what Zapatero is calling for.

Do not believe that he is not sophisticated enough to know what those charters say.

I am a big, dumb sales guy at a medium-sized company in Souther California. I am not a political sophisticate. I am not paid to understand geopolitical events.

But, I friggin' know what the Palestinian Charters say. You think Zapatero doesn't?

He does, my friends. He does.

He's just another blip in the long tradition of European anti-Semitism.

Oh, and get this. Zapatero also warned Israel that their behavior has hurt relations with Spain. I guess that means Israel can't count on any help from the fearsome Spanish military which was defeated when the Jihadis bombed a train station in Madrid.

That's right, one bombing of a train beat the entire Spanish military into defeat. And, the funny thing is, there weren't even any Spanish military stationed on the train.

Just hearing about the bombing scared them so bad they ran away.

Oh, here's some more info of which I wasn't aware previously. Apparently, Zapatero has quite a history of anti-Semitism:

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Prime Minister of Spain and Secretary General of the Socialist Party, arrived to power at a time nobody expected, not even inside the Party.

Keen on populist tirades against the United States "Dickhead Bush" and "Ketchup Queen Kerry", his whole campaign did not bring much attention until the moment Al-Qaeda decided to blow up Madrid trains, killing almost 200 people and bringing to an end Spain's membership of the West.

From that moment on, everybody knew nothing would be the same, and Spanish Jews knew there were hard times ahead. Prime Minister Zapatero has not disappointed them.

'Understand Nazis'

Although many experts had foretold of the imminent disappearing of European Jews, nobody expected such a virulent explosion of anti-Semitism in Spain, not even under a Leftist government.

The first signal came on Monday, 5 December, when during a dinner with the Benarroch family, Zapatero and wife began claiming what Vidal Quadras, member of the European Parliament, described on the radio as "a tirade of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism".

By the moment the Benarroch couple had left the table to express their regrets, Zapatero was explaining his lack of surprise about the Holocaust: according to the people present, Zapatero claimed to understand the Nazis.
