The Spanish state of Navarre voted to endorse the BDS movement against Israel, calling on the European Union to impose sanctions on Israel, while slamming the United States’ decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to “occupied Jerusalem.”
More than 50 Spanish cities and regions have passed motions condemning Israel. Driven by the rise of the political far-left in Spain, this proliferation of anti-Israel activism is establishing the kingdom as the most anti-Israel member state in the E.U., reports the Gatestone Institute.
If Spain truly cared about Israel’s “occupation,” why does the kingdom continue to preserve its own colonialist legacy? Since 1815, Spain has occupied the Portuguese town of Olivenza, despite signing a treaty agreeing to return control to Portugal.
