    I agree that showing torches was not the best way to claim for independence because it can remind what happened during nazism. However, it was not the purpose. Catalan independentism is totally democratic and most people who want the independence of Catalonia do not hate spaniards and Spain. We think that living in different countries catalans and spaniards would be better. Besides, why doesn't the autor of the article understand the catalan "nationalism"? Didn't many jews want their own country? Couldn't they have decided to stay in the prosperous Europe? Finally, catalan society is not antisemitic. A minority? Maybe... In general, Noa was, and will be, welcome. Shalom
