    Former spanish PM, mr. Jose Maria Aznar, who now says that he supports Israel, is from a political party, the PP (Partido Popular), that never has wanted to condemn Franco's crimes. We'll see that he says on this new: I bet total silence. The PP, like Aznar, is heir of Franco's fascist and ultranationalist wiews and many of his militance have ultraright and fascist pasts as members of former dictatorship or fascist, ultracatholic, even nazi, political groups. Aznar popularity in Spain is zero and he's considered a clown and a political corpse. When Alqaeda killed 200 people in Madrid in a chain bombing, Aznar blamed basque group ETA and manipulated media in a maneuver that was considered one of the most infortunate blunders in spanish political history. That's for all this that Aznar could be a bad friend for Israel. Israel can't be popular, can't be understood, with people like Jose Maria Aznar. Israel deserves best.
