This declaration by former PM Aznar is certainly anomalous for him who once was a leader of Spain. On the contrary, Excellency, if Israel goes down and the rest of the world stands aside, we shall all have peace. It is distressing and a blot on the history of Spain that a former leader makes a statement such as that of Señor Aznar's. Perhaps his views are among the factors that got him trounced in the Spanish elections of 2004. Most of the Hispanic world would find Señor Aznar's views at best absurd, and at worst perhaps blasphemous.
