Spain objects to Irans genocidal lunacy, Ahmadinejad goes ballistic

Persian for Chutzpah


Earlier this week, Spanish officials actually spoke out against the raving genocidal lunacy of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Miguel Moratinos, the EU appeasement weasel who hung out in the bunker with Yasser Arafat almost to the bitter end, called Ahmadinejad’s comments “unacceptable,” if you can imagine that.

And in response, today Spain got a taste of the Persian version of chutzpah:

Iran summons Spanish envoy over stance on Israel remarks.

Iran has summoned Spain’s ambassador to express its protest over Madrid’s reaction to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s recent remarks against Israel, semiofficial Iranian news agencies reported Thursday.

On Sunday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the world would witness the destruction of Israel soon, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

A day later, Spain voiced its objection to the comments, with officials saying Madrid would summon Iran’s ambassador to condemn the verbal attack. Spain’s Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos called Ahmadinejad’s comments unacceptable.

In response, Iran’s Foreign Ministry director for Western Europe, Ebrahim Rahimpour, on Thursday told the Spanish ambassador that the Spain’s stance was a surprise and hasty, the ISNA and Mehr news agencies reported in Iran.

Rahimpour also criticized Spain, saying it has been silent over Israel Defense Forces attacks on Palestinians, the reports said.
