A fascist voice from Spain

By Khalid Amayreh in occupied Palestine

"Jose Maria Aznar, the former Spanish Prime Minister, is reported to have called on western countries to protect and defend the Apartheid Israeli regime, despite the latter’s Nazi-like policies against the Palestinian people and other peoples of the Middle East.

Aznar reportedly argued that “if Israel goes down, we all go down.”

Israel is our first line of defense in a turbulent region that is constantly at risk of descending into chaos,”

Aznar, a key ally to former President Bush in the war against Islam, added that “to abandon Israel to its fate at this moment of all moments, would merely serve to illustrate how far we have sunk and how inexorable our decline now appears.”

Aznar’s argument seems strikingly similar to arguments made by the defenders of the South African apartheid regime before its ultimate downfall. Then we were told repeatedly that abandoning the apartheid regime would remove the last vestige of civilization and enlightenment in Africa....."
