Former Spanish prime minister José María Aznar’s 
article in 
<http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/opinion/columnists/article2559280.ece>The 
Times of London* “If Israel goes down, we all go 
down” jumped out of his box of naphthalene balls, 
in which the Zionist movement and the 
neo-conservatives put him in, to be preserved 
till the time when he is required by their 
godfather Western colonialism, as they see fit to 
take him out, when they brush off his dust and 
eliminate the disturbing smell and bring him to face the public once again.

The time has come for José María Aznar to write 
his above mentioned article when the assault by 
the “Israeli” commandos on the Mavi Marmara, 
descending from their helicopters and ascending 
from their warships without prior notice, opened 
fire on the unarmed peace activists aiming at 
delivering humanitarian aid to the starved 
besieged Gazawis. Activists who, according to the 
Zionist entity’s armed forces, should not have 
tried to defend themselves even with whatever 
rudimentary things they found to do it, sticks, 
metal pipes and kitchen knives that are normally 
on board the tourist ship. For the Israelis, they 
should have (while bleeding) instead invited the 
assaulters on for tea with the Mavi Marmara’s 
captain on the ship’s deck. They unknowingly 
disturbed and annoyed the former Spanish P.M. 
with their “impoliteness” in resorting to the 
famous Zionist excuse of “self defense” whenever 
committing massacres, which obviously IS impolite 
of them to do so. According to Aznar, they should 
have sacrificed their lives for “Israel’s” 
security, safety and prosperity. As for the 
Gazawis, they are living in abundance and security!

According to Aznar “For far too long now it has 
been unfashionable in Europe to speak up for 
Israel. In the wake of the recent incident on 
board a ship full of anti-Israeli activists in 
the Mediterranean, it is hard to think of a more 
unpopular cause to champion.” The former Spanish 
P.M. should have used rather than “anti Israeli” 
activists, a different name. Why not call them 
“humanitarian” activists? They are those who have 
been aware of the massacres, land and other 
property theft, ethnic cleansing, and many other 
forms of war and crimes against humanity that the 
Zionist entity has been committing against 
Palestinians and other Arabs for as long as a 
century and a quarter, since the Zionist invasion 
of Palestine started in the 1870s, and they 
wanted to bring aid to people who are victims of 
that. It is really not their fault if the Zionist 
entity, through its actions and behavior had 
forced Europeans and some of their regimes to 
shift from their full support of it towards at 
least a shy support to the occupied and 
terrorized Palestinian Arabs?! (Probably it was 
really due to European racism against Jews who 
wanted to “get rid of them” by establishing for 
them a “homeland” in Palestine and at the same 
time be able to use them as a front line for 
Western colonialism in the heart of the Arab homeland?)

Señior Aznar, the Zionist entity – which includes 
government, armed forces and people, that you 
champion and consider as your ideal political 
entity – are nothing but a bunch of thieves. Here 
is a testimony by an Italian journalist who was 
on board a smaller ship that was a part of the 
flotilla. The following is a quote from the 
Israeli paper Haaretz: Dimi Reider “Italian 
flotilla journalist: My credit card was used 
after IDF confiscated it” 
<http://www.haaretz.com/.../italian-flotilla-journalist-my-credit-card-was-used-after-idf-confiscated-it-1>www.haaretz.com/
/italian-flotilla-journalist-my-credit-card-was-used-after-idf-confiscated-it-1 
.

After the Israel Navy took over the boat, he 
said, the soldiers searched every passenger and 
confiscated everything they found. "They took two 
cameras, microphones, a stand and other equipment 
from me and my photographer. They took one of the 
cameras as I was taking photographs," says 
Luppichini, who was working for Italy's RAI-3 
television and an Italian-Swiss television channel when he was detained.

"Afterward they took my wallet, passport, bag and 
all personal effects on the boat," he says. “On 
June 2 he was taken to an Immigration Authority 
compound and on the following day was deported. 
Although he showed the document proving Israel 
had confiscated his passport, he says he was 
deported without receiving any of his property or identification papers back.

“A few days ago Luppichini discovered that while 
he was confined in Be'er Sheva and after he was 
back in Italy – a day after his deportation – 
purchases were made with his credit card, which 
the Israeli authorities had confiscated.”

Señior José María Alfredo Aznar López, you as a 
former prime minister of Spain for eight full 
years, your country, a European country that used 
to express more friendship towards Arabs than 
most European countries, should have been aware 
of all the daily Zionist atrocities against 
Palestinians and other Arabs and their lands. 
Let’s for argument’s sake, say that the Zionist 
entity has a right to the 1948 Palestinian Arab 
lands, not to say even for argument’s sake, their 
colonization of the 1967 Arab lands including the 
West bank of which East Jerusalem is an integral 
part, the Golan Heights and what is still 
occupied in south Lebanon. Shall we leave out the 
Zionist greed for the newly discovered voluminous 
gas and oil deposits in the territorial waters of 
Lebanon? Sure Señior Aznar will still have 
remnants, or actually a lot of the old 
colonialist ambitions, which still rely on the 
Zionist entity to fulfill as a front line for western colonialism.

Here is a nice joke by the funny ex prime 
minister, José María Aznar proceeded saying 
something that no self-respecting human being 
would say: “In an ideal world, the assault by 
Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara would not 
have ended up with nine dead and a score wounded. 
In an ideal world, the soldiers would have been 
peacefully welcomed on to the ship. In an ideal 
world, no state, let alone a recent ally of 
Israel such as Turkey, (Turkey seems at last 
became aware with what sort of a state it was 
dealing with in the past as part of the NATO) 
would have sponsored and organised a flotilla 
whose sole purpose was to create an impossible 
situation for Israel: making it choose between 
giving up its security policy and the naval 
blockade, or risking the wrath of the world.” Is 
risking the security of a colonialist racist 
entity that requires the enslavement, occupation 
and at last the annihilation of the indigenous 
population part of your idea of an “ideal world”? 
This is a land that is promoted as having been 
promised by a private God to specific people 
alone, actually the converted Turkish tribes into 
a certain religion, these invaders claim sole 
rights, though it is clear that they came from 
the far ends of the world. Those invading 
commandos, Señior Aznar ascended from their 
helicopters while opening fire on the activists 
for “a reasonable reason”, to avenge the Turkish 
Prime Minister for breaking his strategic 
alliance with this rogue state. According to you, 
Señior Aznar, the Zionist commandos should not be 
welcomed only with a cup of tea, but a very 
lavish banquet should have been prepared to honor 
these “humanitarian” commandos in spite of the 
nine martyrs and over fifty wounded shot by them. 
Zionist authorities agree with Señior Aznar, that 
the activists should not have defended 
themselves! And this is an incredible irony in a 
country that names its army “Defence Force”.

We, Señior Aznar, the descendents of the original 
Christians of the world who came from the holy 
land, and who suffered with their other Arab 
brothers and sisters, including our Muslim 
compatriots, Arab Muslims, and non-Zionist Arab 
Jews at the hands of those imported converted 
Zionist Jews, and their allies the so-called 
“Christian Zionists”, the believers in the Bible 
of the Babylonian myths, and not in the peaceful 
Jesus Christ, and what Aznar insisted as 
legitimate with his, “Israel is a fundamental 
part of the West. The West is what it is thanks 
to its Judeo-Christian roots.” The roots of 
Western and the original Eastern Christianity lie 
in Christ’s Gospels, which came to correct the 
myths of the racist part of Judaism, which 
Christian Zionists adopt and wage wars to fulfill 
its myths. Señior Aznar, George W. Bush’s 
student, who calls national resistance against 
Zionist and American occupation and terrorism, 
“terrorism”, which is what Zionism and other 
sorts of colonialism call “jihadis”. We wonder 
what Señior Aznar calls those Zionist invaders, 
both the racist, extremist religious Orthodox and 
the so-called secularists, who believe in the 
annihilation/assassination even of the peaceful 
Arab civilians, this applies also to the equally 
racist Neo-conservatives. What justification 
would those Neo-conservatives give for the 
invasion and the full destruction of Iraq except 
for the insistence of the Zionist entity: here is 
what a high ranking “Israeli” official said about 
this matter, which proves the colonialist character of Zionism:

“Israel: We Destroyed Iraq.. Iraq must Stay 
Divided and Isolated – The Oil of Northern Iraq will Flow into Israel!

“Posted: 26 May 2010 10:41 AM PDT
“Avi Dichter, the Israeli Internal Security 
Minister, said in a lecture at the ‘Israeli 
National Security Research Center’ “about the 
Israeli role in destroying Iraq after it was 
occupied in 2003 “we achieved in Iraq more than 
we expected and plan!” Dichter confirmed that 
keeping Iraq weak and isolated is an Israeli national interest.
“Weakening and isolating Iraq is no less 
important than weakening and isolating Egypt,” he 
said. Weakening and isolating Egypt done by 
diplomatic methods while everything is done to do 
achieve a complete and comprehensive isolation to Iraq”, Dachter added.
“Iraq has vanished as a military force and as a 
united country. Our strategic option is to keep it divided,” he added.”

This is what Zionism is. This is its colonialist 
characteristic, that aims at exploiting the third world and sucking it dry.

Aznar added: “A reasonable and balanced approach 
should encapsulate the following realities: 
first, the state of Israel was created by a 
decision of the UN. Its legitimacy, therefore, 
should not be in question.” But we should remind 
the former prime minister how and why the Zionist 
entity was created: John Quigley, wrote in his 
“Palestine and Israel: A Challenge to Justice.”

“By this time [November 1947] the United States 
had emerged as the most aggressive proponent of 
partition
The United States got the General 
Assembly to delay a vote ‘to gain time to bring 
certain Latin American republics into line with 
its own views.’
Some delegates charged U.S. 
officials with ‘diplomatic intimidation.’ Without 
‘terrific pressure’ from the United States on 
‘governments which cannot afford to risk American 
reprisals,’ said an anonymous editorial writer, 
the resolution ‘would never have passed.’” 
President Harry Truman said: ““I am sorry 
gentlemen, but I have to answer to hundreds of 
thousands who are anxious for the success of 
Zionism. I do not have hundreds of thousands of 
Arabs among my constituents.” President Harry 
Truman, quoted in “Anti Zionism”, ed. by Teikener, Abed-Rabbo & Mezvinsky.

Palestinian Arab writer, Sami Hadawi, wrote in 
his book, “Bitter Harvest.” In response to the 
question: “Was the partition plan fair to both Arabs and Jews?”

“Arab rejection was
based on the fact that, while 
the population of the Jewish state was to be 
[only half] Jewish with the Jews owning less than 
10% of the Jewish state land area, (In 1948 Jews 
owned less than 6% of the area of Palestine that 
included public property Palestinian land that 
the British mandate authorities leased to the 
imported Jews for 99 years at nominal fees) the 
Jews were to be established as the ruling body – 
a settlement which no self-respecting people 
would accept without protest, to say the 
least
The action of the United Nations conflicted 
with the basic principles for which the world 
organization was established, namely, to uphold 
the right of all peoples to self-determination. 
By denying the Palestine Arabs, who formed the 
two-thirds majority of the country, the right to 
decide for themselves, the United Nations had violated its own charter.”

Would the “honorable” former Spanish P.M. 
challenge the credibility of this statement. 
Which proves that the partition resolution was 
reached, as President Truman and John Quigley 
clearly said by the U.S. Administration delaying 
the voting on the resolution by force several 
times before it allowed the UN General Assembly 
to vote on the resolution? Small states were 
pressured and bribed to shift from voting against 
or abstaining to achieve the required two thirds 
majority vote, which ended in giving 55% of an 
Arab land to the imported one third of the 
population at the time, people who were smuggled 
into Palestine with the help of the British, 
actually self-mandated authorities, and were 
still not yet even by the legality of the British 
occupation authorities, granted Palestinian 
identity cards, while the owners of the land – 
who formed 67% of the population – were given 42% 
of their own land (3% was the international 
Jerusalem zone). We also shouldn’t forget the two 
colonialist arrangements, Sykes Picot Agreement 
and the Balfour Declaration, both colonialist 
arrangements reached among themselves without 
consulting with the lawful owners of the land, 
Palestinian Arabs. Our own land was split into 
bits and pieces of political entities to make it 
easy to put under the so-called mandate 
(colonization) and hence create a “Jewish 
homeland in Palestine” a Zionist entity, within 
it the aim of continuing the colonization of the 
Arab homeland the wealth of which Aznar is 
worried about.. This is what is the aim of 
erecting the front line for “Judeo/Christian 
Western civilization” in our Arab homeland is all about!!!

Again the Neo-conservative Aznar puts the blame 
on the indigenous Palestinians, partly Muslim 
Arab population for resisting Western colonialism 
as if we have to willingly allow our subjugation 
to Zionist inclined colonialist powers. What they 
call extremism, whether Islamic or any other 
religious or national resistance, was caused by 
occupation. Had there been no occupation or 
attempt to occupy a people and a land, would 
there be a need of a rise of resistance? Which 
occupied European people didn’t rise up to resist 
a foreign occupation? Examples are numerous 
during WW I and WW II starting with France and 
not ending with Russia, not to speak of Asia 
where the best example was Vietnamese resistance, 
and that of the African and American peoples. Of 
course, though what is now The United States of 
America was colonized by settlers of British 
origin, they revolted against direct British rule and expelled it.

Aznar proceeded saying: “The real threats to 
regional stability, however, are to be found in 
the rise of a radical Islamism which sees 
Israel’s destruction as the fulfillment of its 
religious destiny and, simultaneously in the case 
of Iran, as an expression of its ambitions for 
regional hegemony. Both phenomena are threats 
that affect not only Israel, but also the wider 
West and the world at large. Of course, Aznar 
expects that our primary worry, we the colonized 
Arabs by Western colonialism, should be the 
security and safety of the west and its coddled 
baby: “Israel”, and not our own safety and 
security. On the other hand, throughout history 
Jews had never been treated and considered as 
full citizens except among Arabs back in history and up till recently.

Sami Hadawi, Sami Hadawi. 
<http://www.passia.org>http://www.passia.org 
added in his book: “[During the Middle Ages,] 
North Africa and the Arab Middle East became 
places of refuge and a haven for the persecuted 
Jews of Spain and elsewhere
In the Holy Land
they 
lived together in [relative] harmony, a harmony 
only disrupted when the Zionists began to claim 
that Palestine was the ‘rightful’ possession of 
the ‘Jewish people’ to the exclusion of its Muslim and Christian inhabitants.”

Aznar proceeds saying. “The core of the problem 
lies in the ambiguous and often erroneous manner 
in which too many Western countries are now 
reacting to this situation. It is easy to blame 
Israel for all the evils in the Middle East. Some 
even act and talk as if a new understanding with 
the Muslim world could be achieved if only we 
were prepared to sacrifice the Jewish state on 
the altar. This would be folly.” Definitely this 
is partly the truth, the Zionist entity is where 
it doesn’t belong and its greed for more land to 
occupy is endless, and that is why bloodshed 
shall never end unless “Zionists” go back, as 
Helen Thomas said, to their own homelands to 
where hundreds of thousands of “Israeli” Jews who 
lately, but better than never, discovered that 
they don’t belong in occupied Palestine; so at 
least 700,000 of them left occupied Palestine, it 
is not our worry where they ended up living. 
Millions of Jews around the world are as adamant 
to end Zionist occupation of Palestine and its 
surroundings, and they struggle with Arabs for 
the purpose, but please don’t be too foolish to 
call us anti-Semites, and the anti-Zionist Jews 
as self-hating Jews, because they are the 
contrary, because they fight Zionism for their 
own safety, as it is a self-destructive movement.

Aznar goes further and deeper to express his 
colonialist attitude, policy and beliefs, he 
added, “Israel is our first line of defence in a 
turbulent region that is constantly at risk of 
descending into chaos; a region vital to our 
energy security owing to our over-dependence on 
Middle Eastern oil; a region that forms the front 
line in the fight against extremism. If Israel 
goes down, we all go down. To defend Israel’s 
right to exist in peace, within secure borders, 
(where are these borders to worry about their 
security, ex PM?) requires a degree of moral and 
strategic clarity that too often seems to have 
disappeared in Europe. The United States shows 
worrying signs of heading in the same direction.” 
By saying that “Israel” is the first line of 
defense, he should instead say its first line of 
colonization and theft of our homelands’ fortunes 
and a jumping board to control its resources and 
suck it dry. Also to keep our people occupied 
with this enemy that the West finances and arms 
so as not to develop our land and improve the 
standard of life for our people. One of the vital 
reasons for the establishment of the Zionist 
entity in the Arab homeland is being a vital 
source of energy for the peoples of the world. 
But why should the west worry about its supplies? 
The Arab people need to sell its oil production, 
otherwise producing it, good friends deserve priority in good treatment?!
“To defend Israel’s right to exist in peace, 
within secure borders
” Did Aznar ask himself who 
prevents the Zionist entity from living in peace 
except “Israel” itself? It doesn’t want peace 
because it is never satisfied with the Arab lands 
it has already stolen and the number of Arabs it 
has uprooted from their homes and land.

Concluding our comments on Señior Aznar’s 
article, we say that it is a shame for Aznar and 
his retired, present and future colleagues to say 
that their fate as great European powers and of 
course American powers, relies on the existence 
of their colonialist racist entity in the heart 
of the Arab homeland. Of course Aznar’s 
idolization of the Zionist state of “Israel” with 
all its criminal past and presence is a debasing 
of all the values that Western civilization values and cherishes.
