There Goes the Sun

From the news:

The Spanish Government has disqualified the Israeli team from the bi-annual Solar Decathlon because the team is located in “occupied territory” - Samaria. Engineers, architects, solar experts and other visitors to the Solar Decathlon will thus be denied the opportunity to study and benefit from the solar-powered energy-economical “Stretch House” designed and built by students of the Ariel University Center of Samaria.
Wait! Will they try to stop the sun from shining over Ariel next? Shiloh?

Oh my gosh!

And to think, these guys kicked the Arabs out of "occupied territory" themselves.

We don't get the right to reconquista?

Winkie,
unfortunately you overlooked the fact of the expulsion of the Jews, which coincidentally occurred in the same year [1492] as the culmination of the Reconquista.
You could say:
The Spaniards in 1492 didn't want us Jews in their country. In the 21st century, they don't want us Jews in our own country.

Today's Spaniards, if they know their own history, especially their history of relations with the Jews, should appreciate that ugly irony. Maybe some do.

I think that the high degree of Judeophobia/Israelophobia in Spain today shows once again that it is not necessary for Jews to be present in sizable numbers in a country for there to be much Judeophobia there. Very few Jews live in Spain today but their media, led by Yasser Zapatero, the PM, agitate and misinform them considerably about what goes here in the Land of Israel. I call him Yasser because he once posed with a keffiya on his small kepeleh.

On the other hand, Rodriguez Zapatero notwithstanding, Spain's foreign ministry did issue some sort of criticism of the daily El Mundo for interviewing David Irving on the Holocaust, as if he were some sort of authority. This was probably at moratinos' initiative since he has been here and seems to have some small inkling of what offends us.

Spanish Judeophobia has its roots in the Span RC church. But fascist Franco too, not to mention what is called the Left [Izquierda], made their own contributions.
