Barcelona cancels Holocaust Memorial...

And, why have it when the Israelis are creating another holocaust as we speak...
The Catalunya government has called off the ceremony marking the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which was scheduled to take place on January 27, citing the Israeli offensive in Gaza as the reason.

The Gaza campaign has inflamed the already pro-Palestinian public opinion in the northeastern Spanish region, and the local media has run endless stories comparing the Israeli stance on the situation in the Strip to Nazi atrocities.

Over 30,000 people marched in Catalunya's streets in support of Hamas, during the three-week campaign, burning Israeli flags and handing out flyers threatening local pro-Israel journalists.

The overwhelming public support for the Palestinians has prompted the government to cancel the Holocaust Remembrance Day service. This was to be the only public event marking the day, and was scheduled to take place in Barcelona's central piazza.

"Marking the Jewish Holocaust while a Palestinian Holocaust is taking place is not right," a local City official told Barcelona's La Vanguardia newspaper.
I am actually in Barecelona right now...and there is a huge banner on a building downtown about the whole world being accomplices in the shedding of Palestinian blood. The banner is professionally printed....and runs across the side of an entire building...about 300 feet long....

Barcelona is the Montreal of Spain. It is the capital city of the region of Catalonia. Its inhabitants speak Catalan first, not Spanish. There is an autonomous/independent streak that runs through Barcelona. The people living there may make parallels with the people of Gaza. Whether this is right or not, the drive for autonomy and independence from their "oppressors" exists.

Andalusia will enjoy islamification as much as they did the last time. When their women become cattle again it will at least solve their birthrate problems.
