Waiting for reconquista

Spain's Prime Minister Zapatero owes his electoral success to the 3/11 train bombing in Madrid. Maybe that explains why he donned a Palestinian—style scarf and criticized Israel. Or maybe he has already surrendered in his heart to reconquista, the sworn goal of bin Laden and many other Islamists to re—take Spain for the Dar al Islam.

Either way, it is disgusting.

Update: Photo here. And even worse news:

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.
