Pilar  Rahola (above) is a Spanish politician, journalist and activist and member  of the far left. Her articles are published in Spain and throughout some  of the most important newspapers in Latin America. She  writes:

Why don't we  see demonstrations against Islamic dictatorships in London, Paris,  Barcelona? 

Or demonstrations against the  Burmese  dictatorship? 

Why aren't there  demonstrations against the enslavement of millions of women who live  without any legal  protection? 

Why aren't there  demonstrations against the use of children as human bombs where there is  conflict with  Islam? 

Why has there been no  leadership in support of the victims of Islamic dictatorship in  Sudan

Why is there never any outrage  against the acts of terrorism committed against  Israel

Why is there no outcry by the  European left against Islamic  fanaticism? 

Why don't they defend Israel's  right to exist? 

Why confuse support of the  Palestinian cause with the defense of Palestinian  terrorism? 

An finally, the million dollar  question:Why is the left in Europe and around the world obsessed with the  two most solid democracies, the United States and Israel, and not with the  worst dictatorships on the planet? The two most solid democracies, which  have suffered the bloodiest attacks of terrorism, and the left doesn't  care. 

And then, to the concept of  freedom. In every pro Palestinian European forum I hear the left yelling  with fervor: "We want freedom for the  people!" 

Not true. They are never  concerned with freedom for the people of Syria or Yemen or Iran or Sudan,  or other such nations. And they are never preoccupied when Hammas destroys  freedom for the Palestinians. They are only concerned with using the  concept of Palestinian freedom as a weapon against Israeli freedom. The  resulting consequence of these ideological pathologies is the manipulation  of the press. 

The international press does  major damage when reporting on the question of the Israeli-Palestinian  issue. On this topic they don't inform, they  propagandize. 

When reporting about Israel  the majority of journalists forget the reporter code of ethics. And so,  any Israeli act of self-defense becomes a massacre, and any confrontation,  genocide. So many stupid things have been written about Israel, that there  aren't any accusations left to level against  her

At the same time, this press  never discusses Syrian and Iranian interference in propagating violence  against Israel; the indoctrination of children and the corruption of the  Palestinians. And when reporting about victims, every Palestinian casualty  is reported as tragedy and every Israeli victim is camouflaged, hidden or  reported about with  disdain. 

And let me add on the topic of  the Spanish left. Many are the examples that illustrate the  anti-Americanism and anti-Israeli sentiments that define the Spanish left.  For example, one of the leftist parties in-Spain has just expelled one of  its members for creating a pro-Israel website. I quote from the expulsion  document: "Our friends are the people of Iran, Libya and Venezuela,  oppressed by imperialism, and not a Nazi state like  Israel." 

In another example, the  socialist mayor of Campozuelos changed Shoah Day, commemorating the  victims of the Holocaust, with Palestinian Nabka Day, which mourns the  establishment of the State of Israel, thus showing contempt for the six  million European Jews murdered in the  Holocaust

Or in my native city of  Barcelona, the city council decided to commemorate the 60th anniversary of  the creation of the State of Israel, by having a week of solidarity with  the Palestinian people. Thus, they invitedLeila Khaled, a noted terrorist  from the 70's and current leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation  of Palestine, a terrorist organization so described by the European Union,  which promotes the use of bombs against  Israel. 

This politically correct way  of thinking has even polluted the speeches of president Zapatero. His  foreign policy falls within the lunatic left, and on issues of the Middle  East he is unequivocally pro Arab. I can assure you that in private,  Zapatero places on Israel the blame for the conflict in the Middle East,  and the policies of foreign minister Moratinos reflect this. The fact that  Zapatero chose to wear a kafiah in the midst of the Lebanon conflict is no  coincidence; it's a  symbol. 

Spain has suffered the worst  terrorist attack in Europe and it is in the crosshairs of every Islamic  terrorist organization. As I wrote before, they kill us with cell phones  hooked to satellites connected to the Middle Ages. An yet the Spanish left  is the most anti Israeli in the  world. 

And then it  says it is anti Israeli because of solidarity. This is the madness I want  to denounce in this conference. 


I am  not Jewish. Ideologically I am left and by profession a journalist. Why am  I not anti Israeli like my colleagues? Because as a non-Jew I have the  historical responsibility to fight against Jewish hatred and currently  against the hatred for their historic homeland, Israel. To fight against  anti-Semitism is not the duty of the Jews, it is the duty of the  non-Jews. 

As a journalist it is my duty  to search for the truth beyond prejudice, lies and manipulations. The  truth about Israel is not told. As a person from the left who loves  progress, I am obligated to defend liberty, culture, civic education for  children, coexistence and the laws that the Tablets of the Covenant made  into universal  principles. 

Principles that Islamic  fundamentalism systematically destroys. That is to say that as a non-Jew,  journalist and lefty I have a triple moral duty with Israel, because if  Israel is destroyed, liberty, modernity and culture will be destroyed  too. 

The struggle of Israel, even  if the world doesn't want to accept it, is the struggle of the  world
