Socialist Pedro Sanchez Becomes First Spanish Prime Minister To Be Sworn In Without A Bible

For the first time in the history of Spain, a Prime Minister is sworn in without the Holy Bible and the Holy Cross. Spain, a fervent Catholic country since the 1st century, has publicly succumbed to the New World Order’s evil forces, which have been brainwashing their people for decades. It is heart-breaking to see how entire cultures and their ancient traditions are being taken over by Communism.

Pedro Sánchez became the first Spanish prime minister to be sworn in without a bible or a crucifix on the table before him on Saturday, a day after the stunning parliamentary defeat of his predecessor.

The 46-year-old socialist formally took up his post as Spain’s prime minister after he successfully ousted Mariano Rajoy, who lost a no-confidence vote in parliament over a corruption scandal within his party.

According to royal observers, King Felipe has relaxed the protocol on such swearing-in ceremonies for officials since taking up the throne in 2014, meaning Christian symbols are now an optional element.

And since becoming the leader of Spain’s socialist party (PSOE), Mr. Sánchez has taken a combative approach to the country’s Catholic Church, which enjoys a privileged position despite the Spanish state officially being secular.

In his manifesto when running for the party leadership in 2017, Mr Sánchez promised to renounce treaties signed by the Vatican and Spain in 1979, under which the Catholic Church was guaranteed funding through a share of taxpayers’ money, exemption from paying certain levies itself and state funding for religious instruction in state schools, among other privileges.

To make any legislative changes, however, Mr. Sánchez will need to convince at least two other parties to support his plans as PSOE only has 84 members of the 350-strong Congress.

In that programme, Mr. Sánchez described his goals as “self-financing for the Church” and the removal of religion from the syllabus in state schools.

Mr. Sanchez now also faces the difficult issue of how to respond to the independence crisis in Catalonia, and the question of his approach to negotiations regarding Gibraltar in the build-up to Brexit.

The no-confidence vote he brought against conservative leader Mr. Rajoy was supported by the Left-wing Podemos, the largest Basque party and two Catalan pro-independence formations, a coalition which will not be easy to assemble on a regular basis.

Talks between the outgoing Spanish government and Britain had stalled over the thorny issue of border security with Madrid demanding to police Gibraltar’s airport.

Héctor Gómez, PSOE’s international relations secretary, told The Telegraph that he was expecting a “flexible” approach from Mr. Sánchez’s government over Gibraltar to ensure that a positive agreement can be reached “as quickly as possible”.

“We want a consensus solution that has no negative impact on the dynamics of the local populations and the daily flow of people crossing the border,” Mr. Gómez said, noting the importance of Gibraltar to the economy of the towns on the Spanish side of the frontier.

“We are committed to a deal that prevents the border becoming an obstacle after Brexit.”

Pedro Sanchez “I Will Rise To All The Challenges”

Bye-Bye, Spain! Their new puppet, Pedro Sanchez has been “elected” as Spain’s new Prime Minister after Mariano Rajoy is forced out of office. Doesn’t anybody remember that Pedro Sanchez was invited to attend Bilderberg’s conference in Austria in 2015? It is NOT a coincidence that he is now in charge, it is simply part of the great evil plan. And he is a “socialist” aka communist.

Socialist leader Pedro Sanchez will become Spain’s seventh prime minister after a no-confidence vote in parliament unseated Mariano Rajoy’s conservative government.

Sanchez vowed on Friday to address the “social emergencies” of the country’s citizens after years of austerity measures.

The 46-year-old, who is the head of Spain‘s largest opposition party (PSOE), could be sworn in by King Felipe VI as early as Saturday. He is expected to appoint his cabinet over the coming days.

For Sanchez, it has been a strange turn of events over the past two years – from losing the leadership of his party to becoming prime minister.

When PSOE lost heavily in the 2015 parliamentary elections and his bid to become prime minister the following year failed, Sanchez’s political future did not look so bright.

However, Sanchez’s political resurrection has been swift since returning as PSOE leader in May 2017.

The passing of the no-confidence vote, which was proposed by Sanchez, means that he will become the head of government, despite his party having only 84 seats.

In his new role, he will be under pressure to resolve a secession crisis in the Catalonia region, keep a strong economic recovery on track and shield his 139-year-old party from the rise of liberal and leftist opponents Ciudadanos and Podemos.

“I am aware of the responsibility I am assuming, of the complex political moment our country is going through and I will rise to all the challenges with humility and dedication,” Sanchez said after the vote.

Sanchez studied for a masters in economic policy in Brussels and he has worked in the European Parliament and the United Nations.

He has committed to respecting the European Union‘s fiscal rules and has already endorsed Rajoy‘s budget. His weak hand in parliament means he is also unlikely to rescind any of the structural reforms the conservatives passed.

I am aware of the responsibility I am assuming … and I will rise to all the challenges with humility and dedicationPedro Sanchez

‘Persistent and daring’

Sanchez was first elected as party leader in 2014, coming from the party’s backbenches as a relative unknown.

The economics lecturer, whose nickname is “Pedro el Guapo” [Pedro the beautiful], was expected to use his charisma to lead a new era for the PSOE.

The PSOE has struggled to carve out a role in the new fragmented political landscape that emerged from the worst economic crisis since the Spanish civil war of the 1930s and ended four decades of a stable two-party system.

Sanchez lost two national elections to Rajoy’s People’s Party in 2015 and 2016.

The wounds inside the party have remained profound and Sanchez has relied on the strong support he enjoys from the party’s grassroots rather than its elite, something which could make it harder for him to form a strong government.

His supporters say he has a calm personality and a talent for compromise. Opponents say he lacks charisma and a clear political vision.

The avid athlete and basketball fan is married with two daughters. Spanish newspaper El Pais wrote on Friday about the “miracle of Doctor Sanchez”, characterizing him as “persistent and daring”.

New Spanish PM – Where does he stand?

Here’s a breakdown of Sanchez’s positions in a number of key issues:

Catolonia: Sanchez has said he will seek dialogue with the new Catalan government, but added that any negotiations must abide by the constitution, which stresses the unity of the Spanish nation.

Economy: He has said he will respect the already passed 2018 state budget, while also vowing to address the “social urgencies” of the Spanish people after years of austerity under Rajoy’s conservative government.

Politics and society: Sanchez has promised to build consensus among political parties to “transform and modernize” Spain. He has also said he will be willing to call general elections, although he did not specify any timeframe.

The European Union: Sanchez is considered to be a passionate pro-European politician supporting Spain’s EU membership.

COMMENTARY: Freemasonry In Spain – Why Did General Franco Hate The Freemasons So Much?

General Franco knew how harmful the Freemasons and their direct link to International Jewry were but was certainly unaware of the fact that the Jewish Cabal had taken over The United States long before he came to power. Both Franco and Hitler fought Communism with all their might, but little did they know that the country they so much admired – The United States, would be the one to backstab them both helping Communism continue its expansion to this date. “Freemasonry in Spain: Why did General Franco hate the Freemasons so much? | In English,” Source: elpais.com

It’s never too late. That was the spirit in which Spain’s freemasons held their recent annual assembly in Madrid, welcoming representatives of lodges from all over the world. The meeting came after a number of other major events organized by Spain’s Grand Lodge in recent months, all part of a bid by an organization that was once ferociously persecuted by General Francisco Franco to rebuild its reputation and establish that it isn’t, and never has been, a danger to the country.

After Franco died, there was arguably greater resistance to legalizing the Freemasons than there was to allowing the Communist Party to operate.

During his 40-year dictatorship, Franco was fond of referring to the “Jewish-Masonic conspiracy,” even doing so in his final speech, given from the balcony of the Royal Palace in September 1975, less than two months before his death. With the dictator out of the way, Spain began its slow transition toward democracy, as political parties, labor unions, and religious movements were all legalized and civil rights restored. All except for the Freemasons, that is, who had to wait until 1979 to be legalized, and only then after the High Court had overruled the Interior Ministry’s initial refusal to allow them to be registered.

Franco, a devout Catholic, was not alone in his mistrust of the Freemasons: in 2005, Pope Benedict described masonry as a sin; and interestingly enough, his successor, Pope Francis shares this view, despite his liberal tendencies. “On this earth toward the end of the 19th century, the conditions for the growth of young people were dreadful. This region was filled with masons, priest-haters, anti-clericalists, and Satanists,” declared the Argentinean pontiff at a meeting of young Catholics in Turin last September.

A few weeks later, a Spanish bishop suspended a priest for being a mason, while the Catholic Church’s Infovaticana magazine accused the organization of a range of crimes, including murder. Spain’s Grand Lodge brushed off the incidents in a humorous article in its publication, El Oriente, pointing out that the founders of three of the world’s biggest car manufacturers – the Chrysler brothers, Henry Ford and André Gustave Citröen – were all masons: “Criticism of the conspiracy is correct,” ran the article. “Do you want a real argument to feed anti-masonic feeling? Without Ford, the Chrysler brothers and Citröen, there would be no traffic jams.”

Nevertheless, some of Spain’s institutions are doing their bit to help restore the reputations of masons who suffered under Franco. In January, Madrid’s College of Lawyers rehabilitated the memory of 61 members who were expelled in 1939. In the wake of Franco’s victory in the civil war that year, dozens of Freemasons, some of them well-known figures, were either exiled, imprisoned or, in some cases, shot.

In 2005, Pope Benedict described masonry as a sin, a view his successor Pope Francis has shared

Which partly explains why Spain’s Senate this year invited members of the country’s Grand Lodge to take part in official acts as part of the United Nations’ International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, although it did so at the insistence of Isaac Querub, the president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Spain, who had previously called on the upper house to invite Grand Master Óscar de Alfonso Ortega and the head of the Spanish masons’ Grand Council, Jesús Gutiérrez Morlote.

In fact, even some senior members of the Catholic Church are taking a more forgiving position. Italian Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Papal College for Culture, recently published an article in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s daily newspaper, entitled “Dear Brothers in the Masons,” calling for dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Freemasons.

It has to be said, though, that in the four decades since Spain has returned to democracy, the Freemasons’ efforts to be accepted have met with mixed fortunes. At the most recent World Conference of Regular Masonic Grand Lodges, held in San Francisco in November 2015, Óscar de Alfonso Ortega told delegates: “Our country occupies a particular place in the history of persecution we have suffered, but that isn’t where the enigma lies. The masons who visit us, who take their status as such in their own country for granted, realize that democratic Spain has made no effort to restore the honor of this institution.” The theme of Spain’s Grand Lodge for 2016 is “Let your actions, not your words, speak for you.”

De Alfonso Ortega attended the San Francisco conference bearing an unusual responsibility: aside from representing Spanish masons, since last summer he has presided the Ibero-American Masonic Confederation, one of the most important regional Masonic organizations in the world, with around 10,400 lodges in 25 countries and a combined membership of 350,000. “For Spanish masons, who number just 3,000, aside from being an honor [this responsibility] will help strengthen our Order here and internationally,” he says.

The masons who visit us realize that democratic Spain has made no effort to restore the honor of this institution – Grand Master Óscar de Alfonso Ortega

Fall 1958, the Pardo Palace in the outskirts of Madrid: Franco’s official residence. Two US senators, along with a high-ranking military man, are received by Generalissimo Francisco Franco. Their mission is to sound out the dictator about a possible visit by the then president of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower. What kind of reception would he get? Franco is delighted at the prospect, and begins expanding on the need to eradicate once and for all the Communist threat, and is willing to help the United States in its fight against the Soviet Union, hoping to win the support of the West in the process – after all, it had only been admitted to the United Nations in December 1955. Carried away in his euphoria, Franco also declares that Freemasonry must also be done away with. At which point, one of the senators politely interrupts: “Sir, President Eisenhower is a Protestant, I’m a mason, and my colleague here in the Senate is Jewish. We would all be in jail if we lived in Spain.” The military man, Eugene Vidal, an old-school Yankee blueblood and head of aeronautics at West Point military academy, drove home the point with a certain degree of sarcasm: “No, no my dear sir, I’m also a Mason and I too would be shot here.” The story of the meeting was told many years later by US writer Gore Vidal, the son of Eugene Vidal and the grandson of another US senator, Thomas P. Gore.

Franco was reportedly livid, but the prospect of parading through the streets of the Spanish capital alongside the leader of the free world was too much to resist, and he kept his views on the freemasons to himself after that. Eisenhower finally visited Spain in December 1959.

Of course, it was not just the masons who Franco felt threatened his vision of Spain: he had only just allowed the first Protestant churches to reopen, despite the vociferous opposition of the Catholic Church. By the late 1950s, a few Jewish families had also cautiously returned.

Six of the Second Republic’s prime ministers were masons, among them Manuel Azaña

What the United States perhaps was unaware of, and that has largely been overlooked in Franco’s long list of crimes, is that the dictator had already virtually eradicated masonry from Spain. Some historians have wondered why Franco loathed the movement so much: some have speculated it might have been because his brother and father, both of whom he is said to have hated, were Masons, and that he had been rejected by a lodge. The Masons have always been associated with anti-clericalism and liberalism, both anathemas to Franco. What is beyond dispute is that in 1936, when he launched his uprising that led to the civil war, he made the 6,000 or so masons in Spain one of his prime targets. Once in power, legislation was soon passed outlawing freemasonry, and some 18,000 trials were held that led to firing squads, long prison sentences, and exile, along with the seizure of all property belonging to anybody convicted of belonging to the Freemasons.

After Franco died, there was arguably greater resistance from Spain’s institutions to legalizing the Freemasons than there was to allow the Communist Party to operate.

There was a time when the masons were both numerous and powerful in Spain. There were 151 masons among the 470 parliamentarians who made up the first legislature of the Second Republic in 1931. Little wonder that Franco described the Republic as a masonic operation. Six of the Second Republic’s prime ministers were masons, among them Manuel Azaña, along with 20 ministers and 14 undersecretaries. A further 21 masons served as generals in the army.

Freemasons had played a key role in the French Revolution and the Enlightenment in the years running up to it. Napoleon belonged to the order, as did George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt. In Latin America, Venezuela’s Simón Bolívar, Mexican president Benito Juárez and Cuban independence leader José Martí were also Freemasons.

VIDEO: What’s Really Happening to Catalonia – Subversion, Balkanization

What is happening in “Cataluña, Spain” and in the rest of the world, is exactly what Michael Black exposes in the following video. Today’s cover of Russian Television, controlled by Putin published ‘Breaking News’ which read:  CATALAN PARLIAMENT: SPANISH GOVERNMENT MEASURES ARE A ‘COUP’. Wasn’t he supporting the ‘unity’ of Spain? Why this subtle propaganda now ‘insinuating’ that the application of article 155 of the Spanish Constitution is a ‘coup’?

The Government is applying the Constitution to end this non-sense while offering the Cataluñan Government to call for legal elections in six months. But, could the separatists be against this because they know they would never legally win the independence? Carles Puigdemont, the President of the Cataluñan Government seems too relaxed about his illegal maneuvering and keeps pushing his independent agenda further. He knows he has the total support of the international Jewish media,  Russia and Israel.

Catalunya and Israel

COMMENTARY: Catalan Independence Advocate Looks To Israel, Germany For Funding

How will Catalunya survive if it separates from Spain? Who loves chaos, wants destruction and has all the money in the world? You guessed it right! Israhell. Let’s face it, the Jews are simply NOT happy with Spain, there are too many Catholics for whom the family unit and tradition are sacred. They need to destroy this. The ‘independentistas’ movement is mainly comprised of brainwashed useful idiots and Zionist puppets. The Jews told us many centuries ago, they destroy from within and this is exactly what they are doing. Cataluña will end up separating from Spain and this will be the beginning of a domino effect in Europe. 

 

Catalunya and Israel

“Catalan independence advocate looks to Israel, Germany for funding,” Source: jpost.com 

Israel and Germany may be key to initially financing a Catalan state independent from Spain, a judicial advocate for a sovereign Catalonia has recently suggested.

Barcelona High Court Judge Santiago Vidal said in the November-December edition of the local Delta magazine that the “facts indicate” that within three years a Catalan state could establish independence through “legal, political and peaceful means.”

Without initial membership in the European Union, an independent Catalan state could not appeal to the Central Bank of Europe to finance its debts, said Vidal, a member of a pro-Catalan independence expert group.

“But there is a solution for this,” Vidal said in the interview adding that “another state with solvency, basically speaking of Israel and Germany, will serve as our temporary bank.”

Vidal downplayed the interviewer’s doubts over whether it was “risky” to believe Israel would back a country seeking independence, given the Palestinian issue.

He stated that “the Palestinian issue is characterized by violence. Whereas, the Catalan issue is characterized by civic lessons, pacifism and the doing of good things that we are giving to the whole world. And this is something the Israelis like very much.”

Vidal gained attention in October when he faced possible persecution over his said pro bono work drafting a Catalan constitution proposal.

He noted in the interview that between 2016 and the end of 2017 “a judicial constitution would be presented for this new state, with or without a deal” with Madrid.

A long-standing breakaway movement in Catalonia, which accounts for one-fifth of Spain’s economic output and has its own distinct culture and language, grew in strength during the recent years of deep recession.

A flood of rejoicing people, a sea of striped red and yellow flags, a forest of posters, a few “middle fingers,” and one simple message: “Catalonia is Europe’s new country.” That is how the largest independent demonstration ever held in Barcelona looked recently.
The carnival atmosphere at the gathering – held on Catalonia’s national day, the Diada – was mixed with strong feelings that this is a historic moment. About one-fifth of the population of Catalonia – 1.5 million people – participated in the demonstration. They wanted to prove that the independence of the region with the greatest economic power in Spain is no longer an exotic idea that preoccupies only the margins of Catalan politics. Recently published surveys have proven that there is no mistake here: There has been a dramatic reversal in public opinion: 51 percent of Catalans now want to say “Adios, Espana” (only 19 percent are opposed).

When you add to that the fact that Xabi, Iniesta and Messi, Barca players, are already decked out in a uniform (their second one, for the time being ) in the colors of the Catalan flag; when you include the warnings that government leaders in Madrid hastened to dispatch to Barcelona, and the urgent call for national unity issued by King Juan Carlos – then it is clear that the Iberian kingdom is in real danger.

In order to understand that, we have to follow the money. In Madrid the acute recession, the declining economy and the 25 percent unemployment rate led to the great Indignados protest; in Catalonia, they led to a strengthening of the separatist movement, whose support has doubled since the outbreak of the crisis. The Catalans are tired of “carrying the poor regions of Spain on their backs.” They claim that 9 percent of their annual GDP – about 16 billion euros – disappear into the coffers of the central government in Madrid. They feel that they are being robbed and are demanding to collect their own taxes.

But according to the separatists, “It’s the economy, stupid” is only one of the issues. The main problem is the alienation of the central government. “Our honor and our freedom are central to the awakening,” says Alfons Lopez Tena, the leader of Catalan Solidarity for Independence and one of the leaders of the separatist movement, in a phone conversation. “Even without the economic crisis we would win a majority now.”

He and his Catalan colleagues accuse the conservative ruling Popular Party and its socialist predecessor of acts intended to undermine their language and their culture; they claim that by its actions the Spanish establishment has put an end to the “state of autonomies” that was established in Spain after the fall of Franco. Last week Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy summarily dismissed the Catalans’ demand to collect their own taxes, providing yet more proof of the fact that he wants to exploit the crisis to restore Spain to the era of centralization, claim the Catalans.

The boomerang is already on the way: The Catalans will give their answers to Rajoy on November 25, the day of the early elections, which were announced this week by Catalan President Artur Mas, and are meant to bypass the Spanish constitution and serve as a national referendum on the independence of the region.

The hot potato will soon end up in the lap of the European Union. The paradox is that despite the euro crisis, the supra-national umbrella that the EU provides to its members encourages separatist movements to dismantle the veteran national edifice and replace it with a framework that allows for self-determination within the European meta-framework.

Spain will not easily give up its crown jewel, but Lopez Tena is losing no time in making a promise that Europe’s new member state will be very friendly to Israel. In that too it will separate itself from its rival in Madrid. And here is another message. Just as Catalonia will soon be the state of the Catalan people, Israel is first and foremost the state of the Jewish people. There is no future for a binational state. The latest victory of the separatists in Quebec, Canada, the continuing efforts to dismantle the Belgian kingdom, and the national referendum to take place in Scotland in 2014 are only a few examples that prove this. Neither a federation nor a confederation, nor autonomy, nor cantons.

Binationalism is dead. Visca (Viva in Catalan) Israel, Visca Catalonia.

Almost exactly five years ago, in September 2007, Spain’s King Juan Carlos paid a visit to Catalonia. Hundreds of separatists staged a turbulent protest against him. Some burned likenesses of the Spanish monarch. The separatist protest dovetailed with another noisy event – the satirical weekly El Jueves published a racy caricature of the king’s son, Prince Felipe, having sex with his wife. As though that were not enough, Catholic and conservative forces in Spain issued calls for the annulment of the monarchy. The monarchy became a viable political target; suddenly, the future of the institution seemed cloudy.
Right around this time, another Iberian “king” paid a visit to Israel. This was Jordi Pujol, who is known as “King Pujol” in Catalonia; for almost a quarter of a century, he headed affairs in the autonomous region, converting a land that was trampled and oppressed under the Franco regime into the country’s most prosperous area. During his visit, “the father of the Catalan nation” who retired in 2003 as the region’s president, explained to Haaretz that the Catalans were fed up with the country’s central government. They were angry about their region’s outdated infrastructure and felt alienated by the way the regime in Madrid put obstacles in their path, blocking Catalan bids for more autonomy, Pujol added.
Pujol, who is now 82, always preached and acted in ways that accentuated Catalan distinctiveness, yet he long opposed Catalan independence, dismissing that goal as an absurdity. His “subjects” sided with that outlook, for the most part. For this reason, Pujol emphatically told Haaretz, “No danger is posed to the unity of the Spanish kingdom. There is no danger now, and there won’t be for the next 50 years.”
Yet kings are not always endowed with the gift of prophecy. Some 1.5 million people, about a fifth of Catalonia’s population, turned out three weeks ago for the largest independence demonstration ever to be staged in Barcelona. One of those participants was a certain Jordi Pujol. His successor, Catalan Prime Minister Artur Mas, decided last week to hold regional elections in November 2012, two years ahead of time. His goal is to turn the elections into a referendum on Catalan independence. Officially, the Spanish constitution bans such a referendum.
Conducted against the backdrop of Spain’s acute economic crisis, polls released around the time of the huge demonstration in Barcelona indicate that 51 percent of Catalans currently support separation from the kingdom. Only 19 percent of Catalan respondents oppose independence. Does this mean that the economic crisis that has toppled close to a dozen governments in Europe might actually bring about the collapse of one the European Union’s member states?
Alfons Lopez Tena, one of the main leaders of the separatist movement, has no doubts on this issue. Speaking in a telephone interview with Haaretz, Lopez Tena, who heads the Catalan Solidarity for Independence party, stated emphatically: “Within two to five years, Catalonia will be an independent state.”
For 21 years, Lopez Tena was a member of the Convergence and Union (CiU) party, which was headed by Pujol and is now headed by Mas. He quit this party two years ago and founded a new, more militant party.
“The CiU didn’t do enough on behalf of independence and to improve our status in Spain,” he explains. “The moment it joined the regional parliament, in 2010, our party won four seats; I expect that the party will now strengthen itself dramatically. That’s because unlike past elections, this campaign will focus on the question of independence, and not on social issues. We’ve proven that we take a hard line on this [independence] issue.”
Q: Support for the separatist movement has doubled since the economic crisis erupted in 2008. Do you owe your popularity to the millions of unemployed workers and an economy that is likely to shrink another 2 percent this year?
“It would be a mistake to attribute our popularity solely to the economic crisis. That’s just one of many topics. The main subject is the attitude displayed toward us by the Spanish central government. It relates to us as a minority that doesn’t deserve equal rights. Our honor and freedom is what stands at the center of this awakening of the separatist movement. Even had the economic crisis not occurred, we’d still win a majority today. Catalans today are united: We literally have no common language with the Spaniards.”
Q: In the business community, many believe that Catalonia cannot survive on its own, owing to its great dependence on Spain.
“That’s a completely erroneous view. Our exports are equal to those of Spain, while imports are double those of Spain. Our GDP is equivalent to that of Israel or Denmark and double that of Slovakia, for example.”
Q: “Catalonia, the newest state in Europe” was the lead slogan of the recent independence demonstration in Barcelona. But Spain is liable to veto Catalonia’s inclusion in the EU and an EU spokesman has clarified that the organization is not set up in a way that would allow it automatically to accept for membership a state that has splintered from one of its member nations.
“All of the Catalan parties want to become part of the EU. Since we are today part of that organization, we believe it will accept us as a full member. The statements made by the spokesman you mention have been denied [by EU officials]. The EU did not express opposition when the question of Flemish independence was under consideration; nor did it call for Scotland to scrap the referendum it plans to hold in 2014, which could lead to its departure from the United Kingdom.”
Q: Historical experience teaches that separation is a contagious phenomenon. What sort of connections do you maintain with other separatist movements in Europe, and outside of the continent?
“We have close connections with the Flemish, and recently the possibility of devising joint  strategy with the SNP (Scottish National Party) was discussed at a joint conference that  included Basque, Sardinian and Corsican participants. We don’t have any connection with Kosovo or any other Balkan state that was on the other side of the Iron Curtain, and whose culture is unlike that which developed in Western Europe. We have forged contact with Quebec – the separatist movement in Quebec is a model for us. But in contrast to the situation in Canada (and Britain), Spain does not allow us to stage referenda about independence. Thus, we need support from the EU, the United States and the international community as a whole.”
Q: Unlike the Basque movement, you have never resorted to violent struggle. Might this change, should Madrid frustrate your campaign for independence?
“We would under no condition follow that [violent] path. That’s not how things are done in a democratic country. We initiated cooperation with the Basque only after members of that movement decided two years ago to abandon the use of terror. Before that time, we only conducted unofficial talks with them, and in these talks, we urged them to desist from the use of terror; we made it clear that in the absence of such a renunciation of violence, we would not collaborate with them.”
Q: The population of Spain as a whole is considered very pro-Palestinian, but in Catalonia, particularly among separatists, many figures are very supportive of Israel. Why is this so?
“Israel sought independence and gained it. It revived its language and has for 65 years dealt with the hostility of the nations surrounding it. That explains our support of Israel and the Jewish people. On a personal level, I define myself as being pro-Israel and pro-Zionist.  These are views I inherited, in my family. I well remember the concern that filled our house at the time of the Six Day War. I was a boy at the time, 10 years old, and we all prayed for Israel’s survival.”
Q: But today the Palestinians are the ones seeking independence.
“At least half of the members of my party are members of the Catalan Friends of Israel Association. Israel is a democratic state, and we support the steps it takes for survival and the survival of the Jewish people. We have no intention of criticizing what its government does. We seek cooperation with Israel, and we hope it will support our independence movement. It is clear that an independent Catalonia will be a close friend of Israel – there’s no doubt about that.”

VIDEO: Proof Of Israel Behind The ‘Independence’ Of Cataluña

This is an excerpt about Spain, taken from our recently published book titled: “Challenge Your Knowledge” by ZionistReport.com – “The Iberian Peninsula located in the extreme south-west of Europe, only fourteen kilometers from the African continent, provides Spain great strategic value. It extends into the Mediterranean on one side and acts as an intersection on the path to Africa and America on the other. From 1936 to 1939 the Spanish Civil War took place. General Francisco Franco a fervent Catholic was in power and ruled Spain for thirty-six years. He defended Spain against communism and received support from Germany and Italy, while the Spanish Communists received support from the Soviet Union and Mexico. The atrocities were carried out publicly by communists and were so horrendous that the communist groups were called, The Red Terror.

After the civil war and once Franco had finally defeated Communism, The Bilderberg Club, who was pulling the strings behind the scenes, began working to bring Juan Carlos de Borbón, as King of Spain to help with the transition of government after a lengthy Franco leadership. General Franco wanted any sign of communism eradicated from Spain. However, The CIA, which was created in 1947, had Franco very well controlled, they were afraid that once Franco would leave power, the Spanish people would rise against any sign of communism left and the party would not be able to come back, so they decided to help keep Socialism underground, until the time was right.

The CIA kept Franco under strict control and well protected, their objective was to secure the free use of Spanish territory for military purposes. They later began choosing military officers for the Francoist regime, who would serve international Jewish interests. They wanted ‘young socialists’ that could be used as a permanent source of information, on the activities of the communist opposition in Spain. So, they ordered for Socialists not to be detained, only the communists. The police were instructed to look the other way, and many times they would help sneak in socialist propaganda, as well as internal documents that the socialist party (Partido Socialista Obrero Espanol ‘PSOE’), would be able to distribute throughout the country. This entire plot was handled from the CIA in The United States.

Kissinger helped during ‘Operation Lolita’ that prepared Juan Carlos de Borbón to succeed General Franco. Immediately after Juan Carlos de Borbón is proclaimed King of Spain in 1975, he is invited to an official ‘diplomatic’ trip to the United States. Ever since the King has always been instrumental for the CIA and has helped put pressure from La Zarzuela (the King’s residence) on the successive governments of the Transition after Franco.   

In 1975 Adolfo Suarez becomes Spain’s first ‘democratically’ elected Prime Minister after Franco. Suarez was against having Spain join NATO and its ties with Israel. But, years later, once the ‘socialist party’ PSOE with newly elected Felipe Gonzalez wins the elections in 1982, on that same year Spain joins NATO, which was a corollary for the entrance into the European Union. We clearly see here that everything Franco had fought for was lost to the socialist/communists, and we see today how the Spanish Communist party is the third largest in the country. Spain has sold out to communist ideologies.”

The Spanish Civil War was a BLOODY WAR against the expansion of Communism. They called Franco a dictator, but in reality, there was no other option but to remain in government until the time was right. Hitler and Mussolini fought against the same enemy and we all know how history has paid them back. Ever since the Spanish Civil War, Cataluña has remained infested with Communists and backed by the tribe, it has been pushing for ‘independence’ for the sole purpose of destroying the unity of Spain. International media is helping with its communist brainwashing propaganda. This is an excellent video, that must be SHARED and made VIRAL if possible.

The actual ruling party in Spain is also in bed with the Jews as well as the rotten Monarchy filled with parasites, but both act as being opposed to the independence and ‘pretend’ to ‘protect democracy’. The people have good faith, they are very patriotic, they stick to tradition and the family unit, and they are confused but they trust the actual government. They do not know that all these criminals are in bed together. As usual, the only ones being hurt are the people, meanwhile, they sit and watch while a great country like Spain is being destroyed from within.

Israel - Catalunya

COMMENTARY: Israel Not Only Supports But Applauds The Dismembering of Spain

Who can doubt at this point in time that the Jews are behind the so-called ‘independence of Catalunya’. There is no way they could have so much economic and media power if it weren’t for their ‘friends in crime’ from Israel. What we are seeing happening in Spain is the work of Communism. Do NOT let anyone tell you differently.

Google translation of the original article posted below:

By Saiid Alami * / (R) .- The patriarch of CiU (currently PDeCAT) in Spanish democracy, Jordi Pujol, has never hidden the predilection he has always felt for Zionism. Pujol told me at a meeting with journalists held in Barcelona during the preparations for the 1992 Summer Olympics that he felt Zionist. And he said it defiantly, without being asked, and knowing that among the journalists present we were a large group of Arab media correspondents that had arrived from Madrid.

More than 15 years after that meeting of Arab journalists with Pujol, on October 28, 2007, Pujol appeared before his Zionist masters in the Israeli Knesset and delivered a servile speech that oozed submission to his patrons, who are the owners and of Wall Street. This Spanish reduced in size version of Berlusconi of the decade of the 80’s, occupied the position of president of the Generalitat, triumphed as banker to later fail, in the 80’s (that Banca Catalana, disappeared in 1984)

Phrases such as: “The basic idea of being the chosen people, I think, has been a very powerful factor for the people of Israel” and another: “Having the conscience of a chosen people – chosen by God – “Give an idea of the adulation done by this man who works for Zionism, insisted and emphasized that the Jews are a chosen people” by God “, which he repeated several times throughout his intervention.

This can be understood as that Pujol recognizes that the people of Catalonia, the rest of Spain and the rest of the world are “vile” compared to the “people” of Israel. Would Pujol or Artur Mas (former president of the Catalan Generalitat) dare to stand before the people of Catalonia and say: “Catalans, recognize once and for all that you are a people of much less rank than the people of Israel …. do you deserve my admiration? “ Do you dare the separatist leaders who both cackle their admiration for Zionism and for Israel to say that same in speeches before the Catalans? Do they dare to acknowledge to their Catalan voters, who have been deceived for decades, that they are actually Zionists and therefore put Israel’s interests above the interests of the Catalans, as is the case with all Zionists in the West? Those American congressmen who recognize that they are Zionists put on their websites that they are in Congress to serve the interests of Israel. Would the leaders and deputies of the CiU dare to be so brave, leave the closet, and declare the same? Because if their souls are trapped by Zionism and by Israel, as they themselves recognize, what the heck are they doing in Catalonia? The answer is simple: to serve the interests of Israel, and everything has its price, of course, that is how all the Zionists of the West, true mercenaries of Israel, work.

Pujol acknowledged before the Israeli Knesset, in that shameful speech, that he is deeply Zionist, from his tender age and the hand of the founder of Zionism, Teodoro Herzel, through his book entitled “The Jewish State”: ” I said, I did not just come into contact with Judaism. Also in a certain sense and especially with Zionism. And not superficially. With only 17-18 years I read (Der Judenstaat) of Herzel “. The Catalan ex-president is undone in his speech in enumerating the books and texts of Zionist authors that he read from a young age, soaking up a criminal ideology and deeply racist, as he recognizes with his concept of “people chosen by God.”

Being a Zionist, like the Pujol, Artur Mas, Puigdemont, PDeCAT and ERC, is to be racist (The UN recognizes Zionism as a racist ideology in General Assembly resolution 3379 adopted on November 10, 1975), is to ignore the rights of the Palestinian people, is to approve and be complicit in the countless massacres perpetrated by Israel in Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan, is to approve the expulsion of their land from the Palestinian people, is to reject the countless United Nations resolutions that do justice to the Palestinian people and condemn Israel, is to support the apartheid policy that constitutes the backbone of Israel and to be complicit in its implementation against the Palestinians, is to reject international legality and to stand against the world community which it recognizes without the inalienable rights of Palestinians. To be a Zionist is to be all this and much more. Being a Zionist is no longer gratuitous, for it forces the conscience of the countless crimes and atrocities of Zionism to be burdened and to be an accomplice of each and every one of them. Today in the 21st century, it is not a matter that admits discussion, because Israel and Zionism have already lost the power they once had in the 20th century to lie, distort and confuse public opinion.Pero todo

More. Radical Zionist

But all this seems to be of little care to Pujol, much less to Artur Mas, his favorite pupil in the racist and hate-filled Zionism discipline, an ideology which the ex-president of Catalunya assumed during his tenure. He used to hide it very well, at least until June 20, 2012, when he declared during a trip to the States: “With a vision bigger than the strictly European, I want to associate Catalunya with at least Massachusetts and Israel. ”

When Mas visited Israel over 4 days in November 2013, he refused to meet with any Palestinian official, even refused to answer any questions that have to do with the Palestinians at the press conference he staged on that visit. Not only this but he dared to do what no responsible European or American have dared to do: visit the old city of Jerusalem (East Jerusalem) that is recognized by all countries of the world, without exception, as a city occupied, as established by international law led by the UN.

With that visit to the future capital of the Palestinian state, Artur Mas attacked, intentionally the Palestinian people, disregarding their nationalist sentiments at heart, he fills his mouth with a nationalism that is remote from Israel.

A spokesman for the Palestinian National Authority, Xavier Abu Eid, much more diplomatic than I (demanded of the post) declared to respect, on November 14, 2013, that “consciously or unconsciously Mas helped legitimize an occupation that they recognize all official international organizations ”

(http://ccaa.elpais.com/ccaa/2013/11/13/catalunya/1384373691_470071.html).

In these same statements Abu Eid goes further and says: “We know that Mr. Mas is not a leader of a State. However, and regardless of his status as autonomous president, international law governs for all. What the president of the Generalitat has done is a serious fault. “ In fact, he virulently ignored the Palestinians, both the people and their perennial tragedy, and the officials of the Palestinian National Authority.

In a speech at the University of Tel Aviv, during his visit, Mas said that Catalonia had chosen Israel as a “model” to follow and as “a partner for innovation.”

The former president of the Generalitat, in his eagerness to lick the boots of the Israelis, came to say in that speech that the Catalans “have Jewish origins.” What did he mean by this phrase so false and full of lies? Maybe put Catalonia at the feet of Israel? Let him explain what he meant by that phrase if he dares.

In an attempt to misrepresent and falsify, a ridiculous Artur Mas stressed that Catalonia “welcomed many Jews who escaped the horror of Nazism in the last century.” Useless attempt to rewrite history. At that time (1939-1945), General Franco was in charge of the government, and those responsible for the Generalitat during the Second Republic had fled from Spain. That is to say, if the Jews of whom Artur Mas spoke achieved asylum in Spain was thanks to the Franco regime and not to the Catalan nationalists, who then had no authority.  

It is striking that this attitude adopted in November 2013, so inclined to Zionism and Israel and so hostile towards Palestine and the Palestinian tragedy, has completely reversed its position publicly displayed in July 2011 when he received in Barcelona the president of the Palestinian National Authority, Mahmud Abbas. Then Mas told reporters that “Palestine and Catalonia are two old nations that, according to this historical tradition and in accordance with this concept of a people and a nation, we perfectly understand those people who wish to live in freedom, peace, and prosperity” Mas said, comparing Catalonia and Palestine. In a press appearance with Abbas, Mas defended “peace” and “freedom” in the Middle East, emphasizing “the closeness” between the two Palestinian and Catalan territories and, therefore, assured to understand the desire for self-determination of Palestine.

CiU and PP Catalan, lackeys of Israel

From his visit to Israel in November 2013, Artur Mas and CiU became radical Zionists. Thus, in July 2015, the Catalan Parliament rejected a motion which called for, among other things, recognition of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination. The rejection was possible thanks to the votes of CiU and PPC.

Instead, in that vote, the Catalan Parliament, thanks to CiU and PPC, took a stand in favor of Israel, rejecting the points of the motion asking to rethink the relations of the Generalitat with the Government of Israel, such as the one that urged the Catalan Government to publish all its agreements with the Israeli Executive and the companies and institutions of the country. Also rejected was the text that claimed that the Government should not promote any agreement with Israeli companies and institutions “that have a direct and demonstrated role in the occupation and illegal colonization of Palestinian territories.”

The review of relations with Israel that promoted that motion also affected Catalan universities, which were encouraged to rescind the current agreements signed with Israeli universities when it is shown that “they have direct complicity with the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories”, point this one that also was rejected thanks to the votes of the CiU and the PP.

The position of the CiU in that vote was so hostile to Palestine that it also rejected the text that asked the Government to urge the central government in Madrid to bring to Israel the need to comply with the different UN resolutions in favor of the rights human rights and the Palestinian people. ” That is, both the CiU and the PP agreed that Israel did not comply with UN resolutions or respect international law.

Israel supports and encourages the dismemberment of Spain

Why is it that Zionism and independence of the Catalan nationalists find such a harmonious consonance with Israel? Israel would have its motives, not by chance we find numerous Israeli journalistic, diplomatic and political testimonies that extol Catalan separatism, instigate it and applaud it. Thus, for example, Adar Primor, editor-in-chief of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, wrote the following in the aforementioned newspaper, on September 28, 2012, the day after the great independence demonstration that filled the streets of Barcelona under the title Viva Cataluña, Viva Israel): “Just as Catalonia is soon to be the state of the Catalan people, Israel is first and foremost the state of the Jewish people. There will be no future for a binational state, for a federation, for a confederation, for autonomy or for cantons. “ And he closed his chronicle on the demonstration, in which he explained the Catalans’ motives for wanting to become independent, with the proclamation “Visca Israel, Visca Catalonia”.

The then Israeli ambassador to Spain, Alon Bar, in an interview with the Catalan Nació Digital and also published by “Help Catalonia” on June 19, 2012, advised the following to the Catalans and their independence movement: “… Therefore I recommend raising a state, respecting your neighbors and negotiating with everyone. I recommend achieving independence through negotiation with all your neighbors. “ That is to say, Israel, according to its ambassador, is very much for the work of which Spain dismembers. And they say it with all the naturalness of the world.

The other Catalan independence leaders Carles Puigdemont and Oriol Junqueras.

In fact, the vast majority of Catalan independence leaders are Zionists, not just the CiU. Thus, Oriol Junqueras, ERC leader, met Oren Bar-El, minister of political affairs at the Israeli embassy in Madrid on April 26, 2012, a meeting that according to Nació Digital was “intense” and “positive”. What would the Israeli diplomat promise to Oriol Junqueras in an intense and positive interview like that, and for what?

Alfons López Tena, a former leader of Solidaritat per la Independencia, stated in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz on September 28, 2012: “Personally, I am pro-Israeli and a pro-zionist. […] At least half of the members of my party are from the Catalan Association of Friends of Israel. Israel is a democratic state and we support all the steps it has to do to survive. We do not intend to criticize the Israeli Government. We look for cooperation with Israel and hope that Israel will support the movement for the independence of Catalonia. It is clear that independent Catalonia will be a very close friend of Israel. There’s no doubt”.

After all this, and many other data that has no place here, there is no doubt that Pujol, Mas, and other Catalan ‘independentistas’, sell Catalonia to Israel and Zionism, behind the backs of the Catalans. The vast majority of the cooperation and collaboration agreements signed by the Catalan Government with Israel are secret, and what the Catalan opposition and the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) Movement in Catalonia require is the publication of all the details of these agreements, which were mostly reached in Israel.

Por Saiid Alami*/(R).-El patriarca de CiU (actualmente PDeCAT) en la democracia española, Jordi Pujol, no ha ocultado nunca la predilección que siente desde siempre por el sionismo. Pujol me dijo, en un encuentro con periodistas celebrado en Barcelona durante los preparativos de los Juegos Olímpicos de verano de 1992, que él se sentía sionista. Y lo decía desafiante, sin que viniese a cuento, y a sabiendas de que entre los periodistas presentes había un nutrido grupo de corresponsales de medios de prensa árabes que habíamos llegado desde Madrid.

Más de 15 años después de aquel encuentro de periodistas árabes con Pujol, concretamente el 28 de octubre del 2007, Pujol compareció ante sus amos sionistas en el Knesset (Parlamento) israelí y pronunció un discurso servil que rezumaba sometimiento a sus patronos, que son los dueños y señores de la banca de Nueva York, por la que tanto le cae la baba a este Berlusconi español de reducido tamaño que en la pasada década de los 80, y mientras ocupaba el cargo de presidente de la Generalitat, triunfó como banquero para fracasar después, en los 80 (aquella Banca Catalana, desaparecida en 1984).

Frases como: “La idea básica de ser el pueblo escogido creo que ha representado un factor potentísimo para el pueblo de Israel” y esta otra: “Tener la conciencia de pueblo escogido –escogido por Dios- y por consiguiente de pueblo único da mucha fuerza”, dan idea de la zalamería de este hombre al servicio del sionismo, insistiendo y recalcando él mismo en que los judíos son un pueblo elegido “por Dios”, lo que repite varias veces a lo largo de su intervención.

Esto se puede entender como que Pujol reconoce que el pueblo de Cataluña, del resto de España y del resto del mundo son “viles” comparados con el “pueblo” de Israel. ¿Se atrevería Pujol o Artur Mas (anterior presidente de la Generalitat catalana) a ponerse delante del pueblo de Cataluña y decirle: “Catalanes, reconozcan de una vez que sois un pueblo de mucha menos categoría que el pueblo de Israel….ese sí que merece mi admiración?”. ¿Se atreven los líderes separatistas que tanto cacarean su admiración por el sionismo y por Israel a decir eso mismo en discursos ante los catalanes? ¿Se atreven a reconocer ante sus votantes catalanes, a quienes llevan decenios engañando, que en realidad son sionistas y por lo tanto ponen a los intereses de Israel por encima de los intereses de los catalanes, como ocurre con todos los sionistas de Occidente? Aquellos congresistas estadounidenses que reconocen que son sionistas ponen en sus páginas de internet que están en el Congreso para servir los intereses de Israel. ¿Se atreverían los lideres y diputados del CiU a ser tan valientes, salir del armario, y declarar eso mismo? Porque si sus almas están prendidas por el sionismo y por Israel, como ellos mismos reconocen, ¿qué puñetas están haciendo pues en Cataluña? La respuesta es simple: servir a los intereses de Israel, y todo tiene su precio, por supuesto, que es como funcionan todos los sionistas de Occidente, auténticos mercenarios de Israel.

Pujol reconoció ante el Knesset israelí, en aquel vergonzoso discurso, que es profundamente sionista, desde su más tierna edad y de la mano del fundador del sionismo, Teodoro Herzel, a través del libro de éste titulado “El Estado Judío”: “Como les decía, yo no entré solo en contacto con el judaísmo. También y en un cierto sentido y sobre todo con el sionismo. Y no de manera superficial. Con sólo 17-18 años leí (Der Judenstaat) de Herzel”. El expresidente catalán se deshace en su discurso en enumerar los libros y los textos de autores sionistas que leyó desde jovencito, empapándose de una ideología criminal y profundamente racista, como reconoce él con su concepto de “pueblo escogido por Dios”.

Ser sionista, como los son los Pujol, Artur Mas, Puigdemont, PDeCAT y ERC, es ser racista (La ONU reconoce al sionismo como ideología racista en la resolución 3379 de la Asamblea general aprobada el 10 de noviembre de 1975), es ignorar los derechos del pueblo palestino, es aprobar y ser cómplice de las innumerables matanzas perpetradas por Israel en Palestino, Líbano, Egipto y Jordania, es aprobar la expulsión de su tierra del pueblo palestino, es rechazar las incontables resoluciones de las Naciones Unidas que hacen justicia al pueblo palestino y condenan a Israel, es apoyar la política del “apartheid” que constituye la columna vertebral de Israel y ser cómplice en su puesta en práctica contra los palestinos, es rechazar la legalidad internacional y ponerse en contra de la comunidad mundial que reconoce sin paliativos los derechos inalienables del los palestinos. Ser sionista es ser todo esto y mucho más. Ser sionista no resulta ya gratuito, pues obliga a cargarse la conciencia del sinfín de crímenes y atrocidades del sionismo y ser cómplice de todos y cada uno de ellos. Y no es cuestión que admita discusión a estas alturas del siglo XXI, cuando ya tanto Israel como el sionismo han perdido el poder que tenían en el siglo pasado de engañar, embaucar y confundir a la opinión pública de Occidente.

Mas, sionista radical

Pero todo esto parece que les importa un pimiento a Pujol, y mucho menos a Artur Mas, su predilecto alumno en la disciplina del sionismo racista y cargado de odio, ideología a la que el expresidente catalán se convirtió durante su mandato. Si lo era antes lo ocultaba muy bien, por lo menos hasta el 20 de junio del 2012, cuando declaró durante un viaje a Estados: “Con una visión más grande que la estrictamente europea, tengo ganas de asociar Catalunya, como mínimo, con Massachusetts e Israel”.

Cuando Mas visitó Israel a lo largo de 4 días, en noviembre de 2013, se negó a entrevistarse con ningún responsable palestino, incluso se negó a contestar a cualquier pregunta que tenga que ver con los palestinos en la conferencia de prensa que protagonizó en aquella visita. No sólo esto, sino que se atrevió a hacer lo que ningún responsable europeo o estadounidense se han atrevido a hacer: visitar la ciudad vieja de Jerusalén (Jerusalén Este) que es reconocida por todos los países del mundo, sin excepción, como ciudad ocupada, tal como establece la legalidad internacional encabezada por la ONU.

Con aquella visita a la futura capital del estado palestino, Artur Mas agredió, intencionadamente. al pueblo palestino, despreciando a sus anchas sus sentimientos nacionalistas, él que se llena la boca con un nacionalismo teledirigido desde Israel.

Un portavoz de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina, Xavier Abu Eid, mucho más diplomático que yo (se lo exige el cargo) declaró al respeto, el 14 de noviembre del 2013, que “de forma consciente o inconsciente Mas ayudó a legitimar una ocupación que reconocen todos los organismos oficiales internacionales” (http://ccaa.elpais.com/ccaa/2013/11/13/catalunya/1384373691_470071.html).

En estas mismas declaraciones Abu Eid va más lejos y dice: “Sabemos que el señor Mas no es líder de un Estado. Sin embargo, e independientemente de su condición de presidente autonómico, el derecho internacional rige para todos. Lo que ha hecho el presidente de la Generalitat es una grave falta”. De hecho, Mas ignoró virulentamente a los palestinos, tanto al pueblo y su perenne tragedia, como a los funcionarios de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina.

En un discurso pronunciado en la universidad de Tel Aviv, durante su mencionada visita, Mas decía que Cataluña había elegido a Israel como “un modelo” a seguir y como “un socio para la innovación”.

El ex presidente de la Generalitat, en su afán de lamer las botas a los israelíes, llegó a decir en aquel discurso que los catalanes “tenemos orígenes judíos”. ¿Qué ha querido decir con esta frase tan falsa y cargada de mentiras? ¿Tal vez poner a Cataluña a los pies de Israel? Que diga él que es lo que quiso decir con aquella frase, si se atreve.

En un intento de tergiversar y falsificar, un ridículo Artur Mas subrayó que Cataluña “acogió a muchos judíos que escapaban del horror del nazismo en el siglo pasado”. Vano y chusco intento de rescribir la historia. En aquella época (1939-1945), en España gobernaba el general Franco y los responsables de la Generalitat durante la II República habían huido de España. Es decir, que si los judíos de los que habla Artur Mas lograron asilo en España fue gracias al régimen franquista y no a los nacionalistas catalanes, que entonces ni pinchaban ni cortaban.

Llama la atención que esta actitud adoptada en noviembre del 2013, tan proclive al sionismo y a Israel y tan hostil hacia Palestina y la tragedia palestina, ha supuesto un vuelco total respecto a su postura mostrada públicamente en julio del 2011, cuando recibió en Barcelona al presidente de la Autoridad Nacional palestina, Mahmud Abbas. Entonces Mas dijo ante los periodistas que “Palestina y Cataluña son dos viejas naciones que, de acuerdo con esta tradición histórica y de acuerdo con este concepto de un pueblo y una nación, entendemos perfectamente aquellos pueblos que desean vivir en libertad, en paz y prosperidad”, señaló Mas, comparando Cataluña y Palestina. En aquella comparecencia ante la prensa junto a Abbas, Mas defendió la “paz” y la “libertad” en Oriente Medio, subrayó “la cercanía” entre los dos territorios palestino y catalán y, por lo tanto, aseguró entender el deseo de autodeterminación de Palestina.

CiU y PP catalán, lacayos de Israel

A partir de su visita a Israel de noviembre 2013, Artur Mas y CiU se volvieron sionistas radicales. Así, en julio  de 2015, el Parlamento catalán rechazó una moción que, pedía, entre otras cosas, reconocer el derecho de autodeterminación del pueblo palestino. El rechazo fue posible gracias a los votos de CiU y PPC.

En cambio, en aquella votación, el Parlamento Catalán, gracias a CiU y el PPC, tomó una postura favorable a Israel, rechazando los puntos de la moción que pedían replantear las relaciones de la Generalitat con el Gobierno de Israel, como el que instaba al Govern catalán a publicar todos sus acuerdos con el Ejecutivo israelí y las empresas e instituciones del país. También fue rechazado el texto que reclamaba que el Govern no impulsase ningún acuerdo con empresas e instituciones israelíes “que tengan un papel directo y demostrado en la ocupación y colonización ilegal de territorios palestinos”.

La revisión de las relaciones con Israel que promovía aquella moción afectaba también a las universidades catalanas, a las que se animaba a rescindir los actuales convenios firmados con universidades israelíes cuando se demuestre que “tienen complicidad directa con la ocupación ilegal de territorios palestinos”, punto este que también fue rechazado gracias a los votos del CiU y el PP.

La postura del CiU en aquella votación fue tan hostil a Palestina que rechazó también el texto que pedía al Govern que instase al Gobierno central en Madrid para que hiciera llegar a Israel la necesidad de cumplir las diferentes resoluciones de la ONU a “favor de los derechos humanos y el pueblo palestino”. O sea, que tanto el CiU como el PP estaban de acuerdo en que Israel no cumpla las resoluciones de la ONU ni respete la legalidad internacional.

Israel apoya y alienta el desmembramiento de España

¿Por qué será que el sionismo e independentismo de los nacionalistas catalanes encuentra tan armoniosa consonancia en Israel? Israel tendría sus motivos, no en balde encontramos numerosos testimonios periodísticos, diplomáticos y políticos israelíes que ensalzan el separatismo catalán, lo instigan y lo aplauden. Así, por ejemplo, Adar Primor, redactor jefe del diario israelí Haartz, escribía lo siguiente en el mencionado diario, el 28 de septiembre 2012, al día siguiente de la gran manifestación independista que llenó las calles de Barcelona, bajo el título (Viva Cataluña, Viva Israel): “Justo igual que Cataluña va a ser pronto el estado del pueblo catalán, Israel es primero y ante todo el estado del pueblo judío. No habrá futuro para un estado binacional, ni para una federación, ni para una confederación ni para una autonomía ni para cantones”. Y cerraba su crónica sobre la manifestación, en la que explicaba los motivos de los catalanes para querer independizarse, con la proclama.”Visca Israel, Visca Catalonia”.

El entonces embajador de Israel en España, Alon Bar, en una entrevista con la catalana Nació Digital y también publicada por “Help Catalonia” el 19 de junio del 2012, aconsejaba lo siguiente a los catalanes y a su movimiento independentista: “…por eso recomiendo levantar un estado, respetando a vuestros vecinos y negociando con todo el mundo. Yo recomiendo alcanzar la independencia a través de la negociación con todos vuestros vecinos”. O sea, Israel, según su embajador, está muy por la labor de que España se desmembre. Y lo dicen con toda la naturalidad del mundo.

Los demás líderes independentistas catalanes

Carles Puigdemont y Oriol Junqueras.

Carles Puigdemont y Oriol Junqueras.

En realidad, la inmensa mayoría de los líderes independentistas catalanes son sionistas, no sólo los del CiU. Así, Oriol Junqueras, líder de ERC, se reunió el 26 de abril del 2012 con Oren Bar-El, ministro consejero de asuntos políticos de la embajada de Israel en Madrid, reunión que, según Nació Digital, fue “intensa” y “positiva”. ¿Qué le prometería a Oriol Junqueras el diplomático israelí en una entrevista intensa y positiva como aquella, y a cambio de qué?

Por su parte, Alfons López Tena, ex dirigente de Solidaritat per la Independencia, en una entrevista al diario israelí Haaretz, el 28 de septiembre del 2012, declaró lo siguiente: “A título personal, yo soy proisraelí y prosionista. […] Como mínimo la mitad de los miembros de mi partido son de la Asociación Catalana de Amigos de Israel. Israel es un estado democrático y nosotros apoyamos todos los pasos que tiene que hacer para sobrevivir. No tenemos la intención de criticar el Gobierno de Israel. Buscamos la cooperación con Israel y esperamos que Israel apoye el movimiento por la independencia de Catalunya. Está claro que la Catalunya independiente será un amigo muy estrecho de Israel. De eso no hay ninguna duda”.

Después de todo esto, y de otros muchos datos que no tienen cabida aquí, no queda duda alguna de que Pujol, Mas, y demás independentistas catalanes, venden Cataluña a Israel y al sionismo, a espaldas de los catalanes. La inmensa mayoría de los acuerdos de cooperación y colaboración firmados por la Generalitat catalana con Israel, son secretos, y lo que exige la oposición catalana y el Movimiento BDS (Boicot, Desinversión y Sanciones) en Cataluña, es precisamente la publicación de todos los detalles de estos acuerdos, que en su mayoría fueron alcanzados en Israel.

Independence Referendum Turns Violent As Police And Pro-Separatists Clash: The Two-Way

What the international Jewish media is reporting is FALSE. And this is how they shape public opinion. TRULY REVOLTING! There is an obvious conspiracy against the Spanish people, against the truth, and against their unity. What we see is a direct attack on patriotism and the unity of a European country. SPAIN HAS GIVEN THE WORLD A LESSON, they have shown, HOW STRONG PEOPLE BECOME WHEN THEY COME TOGETHER. IF WE ALL DID THIS, THERE WOULD BE NO MORE ‘JEWISH INFLUENCE CAPABLE OF DESTROYING US’. That is the reason why the media does not want you to know the truth. 

The ‘referendum’s’ intention, was unconstitutional and anti-democratic, it had no legal base. The Constitutional Court had suspended the referendum of October 1. The pro-separatists tried to give it a ‘legal appearance’, but what Catalunya has done is EMBARRASS itself before the world. The Jewish controlled media, with lies and distortion of the facts, will try to convince the world that ‘the government has imposed their will and that the police acted with brutality’. You see in the video, how the people applaud and gave flowers to the police thanking them for their support. Only a few threw stones at them.

 

There was NO consensus, no legality in voting, no accredited polling stations. But, their leader Puigdemont and his minions ignored all the rules and called for a referendum.

How about the millions that Spain as a country is losing? Economists have been warning for some time that the push for the independence of Catalunya is having a strong effect on the economy and it is affecting investments. Several companies based in the region are now ready for a 24-hour exit. This is hurting Spain’s economy. But isn’t that what the reds truly want? 

The majority of the people in Cataluyna want to continue being part of Spain, only a minority (incited by Communists) want their independence from Spain.

This is the real SPAIN, who sings “Spain United Will Never Be Divided”. Lots of WISDOM in those words. You can hear the older folks say: “This is a ‘repetition’ of 1939 when the COMMUNISTS tried to divide the country”. Others say “We go to the streets to fight for our country”. Others sing: “Do not lie to us Catalunya is Spain!”, “They will not vote”. You can hear the National Anthem! Truly inspiring. A great lesson to the entire world. VIVA ESPAÑA!!!!

Scenes of chaos and violence unfolded in Catalonia as an independence referendum deemed illegal by Madrid devolved quickly on Sunday.

As police followed orders from the central government to put a stop to the vote, they fired rubber bullets at unarmed protesters and smashed through the glass at polling places, reports The Associated Press. Three hundred and thirty-seven people were injured, some seriously, according to Catalonia’s government spokesman.

Spain’s Interior Ministry said a dozen police officers were injured. NPR’s Lauren Frayer reports from Barcelona that some people were throwing rocks down at officers from balconies.

Yet the violence came from all directions.

“Horrible scenes,” Lauren reports. “Police dragging voters out of polling stations, some by the hair.” 

Scuffles erupted as riot police forcefully removed hundreds of would-be voters from polling places across Barcelona, the Catalan capitol, reports AP.

Spanish National Police push away referendum supporters outside a polling station in Barcelona, Spain on Sunday.

Nevertheless, many people, managed to successfully cast their ballots across the region after waiting in lines hundreds-of-people-deep, including the elderly and families with small children, says Reuters.
Sunday was a culmination of a decades-long movement in the autonomous region of Catalonia nestled in Spain’s northeast corner. Pro-separatists say they deserve self-rule, pointing to their unique history, culture, and language. And as a wealthy region, they say Catalans pay an outsize share of taxes to Madrid while seeing little in return.

Independence supporters knew that Sunday’s vote would be much more than a simple exercise in democracy as the stage was set for a showdown.

“There will be no referendum on Oct. 1,” government spokesman Inigo Mendez de Vigo declared on Friday.

After the highest court in Spain had ruled the referendum unconstitutional, the central government sent in thousands of police reinforcements to try to halt it, in part by dismantling needed infrastructure, reports Reuters.

The government said organizers were facing criminal charges and arrest.

And Catalonia’s High Court ruled that Google had to delete a smartphone app that the Catalan government was using to spread information about the vote, reports the wire service. Google apparently complied.

Despite the setbacks, pro-separatists forged ahead.

“Everything is prepared at the more than 2,000 voting points so they have ballot boxes and voting slips, and have everything people need to express their opinion,” Catalan President Carles Puigdemont told the wire service.

Puigdemont cast his vote Sunday in the province of Girona.

Lauren reports that referendum organizers had to deploy creative tactics to skirt authorities. “The polling station where I am right now, ballot boxes had to be smuggled into the building before dawn in garbage bags so that they weren’t confiscated by police.”

Tens of thousands of people registered to spend the night at polling places in defiance of court orders that they be shut down. Organizers told Reuters that even if people were prevented from voting, the mass sleepover would show solidarity in a peaceful resistance.

But as authorities moved in Sunday, there was an apparent divide between the Catalan regional police and national police.

Lauren says when Catalan police arrived Sunday morning to confront parents and teachers camped out at a polling station at a school, “they didn’t lift a finger. In fact, people here applauded them and said those police are on our side.” However, when national police sent in from elsewhere in Spain arrived, the crackdown began.

People try to offer flowers to a civil guard at the entrance of a sports center used as a polling station near Girona, Spain on Sunday.

The vote is largely symbolic, its results having no legal status after being blocked by Spain’s constitutional court. But experts say a constitutional crisis may be looming as the rift between Madrid and Catalonia deepens.

“Although the Catalan referendum is considered unconstitutional, the defensive posture adopted by Madrid is only adding more fuel to the fire,” Stephen Gallo, European Head of FX Strategy at BMO Financial Group tells CNBC. “Regardless of turnout or the result this weekend, the Catalan referendum is becoming yet another PR disaster for the political establishment in Spain.”

In 2014, Catalonia voted overwhelmingly to break away from Spain in another referendum that the central government had deemed illegal. Madrid did not recognize the results.

Whatever the outcome of Sunday’s vote, some pro-separatists sounded resigned to what could be lengthy battle ahead.

“Now we are in front of guns. We are surrounded, it’s true,” said polling volunteer Lluis Rotger on Sunday. “But I think in the end, we will win. How? I don’t know.”

 Spain Tense As Catalonia Plans Independence Referendum

What is happening in Cataluña is Communism in action. What is the end goal, divide Spain. Communists have been trying to destabilize Spain ever since they settled in Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War. The country has already suffered the horrors of the reds, so most Spaniards know better, most are very patriotic and recognize the Communist infiltration and their end goal. The terrorist attacks led by ETA, the latest false flag Islamic terrorist attacks and the so-called independence of Cataluña are all being financed and promoted by Putin and his cohorts.

BARCELONA, Spain — A battle over the future of Spain is intensifying as conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and the central government in Madrid are on a collision course with a left-wing separatist movement in Catalonia, the country’s richest region, over a planned referendum on independence, which Spanish high courts have declared illegal and many fear will explode into violence as federal security forces try to block the vote.

Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona, is a center of industry and culture, equivalent to Spain’s California or New York, whose secession could lead to an unraveling of the Spanish state. With its own language and a tradition of suspicion toward Madrid, Catalonia was the bastion of communist and anarchist forces during Spain’s 1930s civil war, nurturing strong regional parties that have dominated its politics since Spain restored democracy in the 1970s.

Defiant crowds gathered outside government buildings in Barcelona on Wednesday in an effort to prevent police from carrying away 16 local officials accused of using public funds to finance the referendum. It was part of a massive security operation underway since last week aimed at neutralizing any vote. Federal authorities also seized 10 million ballot papers printed for the planned Oct. 1 provincial vote.

In a televised address Wednesday night, Mr. Rajoy warned local officials directly of “greater harm” if they don’t drop the referendum bid, which he called a “totalitarian act,” according to an account by The Associated Press.

“If you care about the tranquility of most Catalans, give up this escalation of radicalism and disobedience,” he said. “You still have time to avoid a greater harm.”

Some were predicting Madrid’s hard line could backfire, sparking sympathy for the independence movement as polls show Catalans sharply divided over the idea of breaking away.

Thousands of Spanish national police and gendarmes have fanned out across Catalonia to search political party offices, warehouses, and private homes. They have confiscated literature, ballot boxes, voter registrations and other electoral material with the aim of neutralizing the referendum’s logistics.

Court citations have been issued to 721 Catalan mayors who support the referendum, and separatist websites have been closed in acts that Carles Puigdemont, president of the Catalan regional government, has equated to martial law.

Among the Catalan regional government figures reportedly swept up in the arrests: Josep Maria Jove, secretary general of economic affairs, and Lluis Salvado, secretary of taxation.

“The central government has intervened against the rightfully elected authorities of Catalonia,” Mr. Puigdemont told a press conference on Wednesday as some of his closest aides were being taken to jail.

Mr. Puigdemont is supported by Spain’s leftist Podemos party, whose leaders recall the Franco dictatorship’s crackdown on any manifestation of regionalism. Opinion polls show that 65 percent of Spaniards support Mr. Rajoy’s crackdown.

While pro-independence protesters take the streets of Barcelona, spontaneous shouts of “Long live Spain are increasingly heard at bars and cafes throughout the rest of the country. Insulting Catalan independence leaders has become as popular as cheering the Real Madrid football team.

Write-in ballots

Mr. Puigdemont has refused to call off the Oct. 1 vote and urged supporters to turn out with write-in ballots and cast them at improvised polling stations that will be set up at party offices, homes and other private premises. Police have closed off town halls and schools that are normally used in elections.

Catalan leaders have said they will declare independence from Spain if they win the referendum by a single vote, in a referendum in which only the “yes” side can be expected to participate.

The looming threat of violence was illustrated by the presence of a notorious militant of the Basque terrorist organization ETA, Arnaldo Otegui, at a half-million-strong independence march in Barcelona last week.

“As far as we know, Catalan officials only have a plan A, which mainly involves strengthening their hand with Madrid,” said one well-known local political analyst, who declined to be quoted by name because of threats critics of the independence movement have received. “But there are more radical actors who have a plan B and may seek to use Catalonia’s frustrated national aspirations to mount a violent separatist movement of the type which plagued the Basque region for a generation.”

Factions of the pro-independence CUP party, the main driver of the independence referendum, have participated in training camps and indoctrination courses organized by the Basque youth movement JARRAI, which served as a support group and recruiting pool for ETA, according to sources of the Spanish gendarmerie, the Guardia Civil.

A CUP faction called ARRAN has circulated threats through social media against elected Catalan officials representing Spain’s national parties, including mainstream opposition social democrats, showing their names and pictures with guns pointed at their heads.

Anti-referendum mayors and town councilors say that their children have been harassed and bullied at schools and that spray-painted graffiti and other acts of vandalism have defaced their homes.

ARRAN leader Mar Ampurdans has called on militants to “take Barcelona on the day of the referendum, saying that “independence will be achieved only through pressure from the streets.”

Fears of growing unrest and lack of legal protection could be causing a capital flight from Catalonia. The region has lost almost $2 billion in private investment since last year, according to Spain’s Mercantile registry. Eight thousand companies have transferred their headquarters from Barcelona, according to the source, including several U.S. and European multinationals, according to the U.S.-Spain Chamber of Commerce.

Spanish government security forces have chartered three cruise ships to billet 4,000 national police officers and Guardia Civil gendarmes being deployed to Catalonia. Police officials say the reinforcements would not be as secure at hotels or guest houses under current conditions.

Security analysts also say that the army is deploying armored personnel carriers painted in police colors.

The vote is being planned as Barcelona reels from a string of deadly terrorist attacks in and around the city Aug. 17 carried out by a previously unknown cell of local Muslim youths. The clash is drawing in even those not normally associated with politics.

Barcelona’s world-famous soccer team put out a statement saying it “condemns any act that may impede the free exercise of [democratic] rights.” The soccer team vowed to “continue to support the will of the majority of Catalan people and will do so in a civil, peaceful and exemplary way.”
