The communist faction of the Spanish government no longer even bothers to conceal its hatred of Israel, as we have seen today.
Without having published this week not a single message condemning the Hamas terrorist attack against Israel - in which more than 1,300 people were murdered, 120 were kidnapped and 3,200 were injured, according to data published by Israel-, this Saturday the far-left minister Ione Belarra has today accused Israel of "genocide" and has asked her socialist government partners to help her carry Israel to the International Criminal Court. As expected, the other Podemos minister, the communist Irene Montero, has supported Belarra's request, appealing to human rights.
In March 2021, the Spanish Parliament voted an initiative to subscribe to the European condemnation of the crimes of communism, a condemnation that recalled that "the Nazi and communist regimes carried out mass murders, genocide and deportations and caused a loss of life and freedom in the 20th century on a scale unseen in human history." This European condemnation was rejected with the votes of the parties that govern in Spain, the PSOE and Podemos, and their far-left parliamentary allies.
In case anyone wants to check it, here you can see what all the deputies voted for that initiative. Ione Belarra and Irene Montero voted against. That is, two far-left ministers who rejected a condemnation of the crimes of genocide committed by Nazis and communists, now they falsely accuse Israel of "genocide" for defending oneself from a terrorist attack. Far-left antisemitism should never have reached the government of Spain. If these two ministers are there it is because Pedro Sánchez put them and keeps them in their positions despite all their infamies.
