Correction from AMDG :
The Spanish Euro-MP who was busy trying to block the camera covering the protest in the European Parliament was not from the Partido Popular, but from Union del Pueblo Navarro. This is more than an ally, it is a kind of branch of the party in Navarra, but a branch that it is formally a different party. UPN participates in Spanish general elections as the PP in Navarra and the PP does not participate in regional elections in Navarra.
AMDG, who blogs at La Yijad en Eurabia, has written a summary of Spanish politics in which he outlines the reasons why the PP (People’s Party) is no friend of the Counterjihad.
In his cover note he says:
I’m sending you the basics about Spanish politics, before publishing it on my blog. Please edit it (for the language) if you deem it necessary.
I have to say that I have voted for the PP until now, but I will not do so anymore.

To help readers make their way through the alphabet soup of Spanish political parties, here’s a handy reference table for the different acronyms mentioned by AMDG:
|BNG||Galician Nationalist Bloc||Bloque Nacionalista Gallego, in Galician Bloque Nacionalista Galego|
|CIU||Convergence and Union||Convergència i Unió, the Catalan nationalist party|
|IU||United Left||Izquierda Unida, the former communists|
|PNV||Basque Nationalist Party||Partido Nacionalista Vasco, in Basque Eusko Alderdi Jeltzalea, abbreviated EAJ|
|PP||People’s Party||Partido Popular, the largest (supposedly) conservative party in Spain|
|PSOE||Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party||Partido Socialista Obrero Español|
And now for AMDG’s summary:
Why the PP is not an ally in the fight against the Islamization of Europe
(Porqué el PP no es un aliado en la lucha contra la silamización de Europa)
I would like to present a summary on the current situation of the Islamization of Spain. I will start with a description of Spanish politics. In particular I would like to show why the PP is not an ally against the jihad. The reason why I want to start with this is that some of you may still think it is.
The first thing to know about Spanish politics: voters do not change their party easily. People vote for PSOE or PP, and will not change their vote, but they will not vote at all if they feel uncomfortable with their party. This has been shown in this study.
That is why in the elections in the year 2000 Aznar could reach a majority. In normal circumstances, PSOE or PP will be forced to ally with the nationalists (gradual secessionists). Spanish voters lean to the left, but the fact that the left is split between PSOE and extreme left (IU, former communists) makes it also difficult for it to have a clear majority. In 2000, when they announced that they would join in coalition, PSOE voters stayed at home and Aznar had his majority.
The second key aspect: in Catalonia and Basque Country, the right has their own “national” parties (CiU and PNV, respectively); the PP is their minoritarian. Galicia has also a “nationalist” party (BNG), but it is a left party in that case.
As a proud and traditional Spaniard, for me the secession of Catalonia and the Basque Country would be very sad, but I am changing my opinion on that. Catalonia has been playing mad with immigration: they have fostered immigration from Morocco and Pakistan against that from South America, because the latter speak Spanish, which they try to eradicate (unsuccessfully). Basque nationalism is rather racial (and racist). See more on the results of the General Elections 2004, and 2000.
You may wonder what the views of the PP on immigration and Islamization are. I see that sometimes it has been mentioned as a possible ally. No. The PP is a pro-immigration party, even if its voters are not.
The PP has not stated its position on Islamization, but the party would be afraid of being called Islamophobes. In any case: if you are pro-immigration and say nothing about Islamization, then you are passively letting it happen.

Immigrants, the new neighbors. This is one of the official debates in the party conference in 2006. There is no mention of a clear restrictive policy but just a question: Is it possible to continue accepting new immigrants without reforms? No mention of a proposal to limit immigration, just a question.
Proposal to ban “fascist” parties and demos against immigration. The PP presented in Parliament a proposal to make “xenophobic” parties illegal. Curiously enough, the left rejected it, letting them know they should present specific cases. PP was outperforming them.
Blas Infante, Pater Patriae in Andalucía. This curious freak converted to Islam. Still, the Popular Party supported considering him the Pater Patriae of modern Andalucía, the new al-Andalus.
Madrid: Special cemetery for Muslims. The major party (PP) took the initiative to grant 10,000 square meters for the new cemetery to Muslims. They will manage it and say who and how people will be buried there. In the early 20th century, laicists fought against the fact that Spanish cemeteries were confessional (Catholic), when atheists would be buried in special small third-class cemeteries. They wanted civil cemeteries for all. Now they are fighting for the privileges of Muslims.
Madrid: €4,417 million for integration of immigrants. I cannot believe it; this is several thousand euros per immigrant in Madrid… I understand that it would be a several-year plan; still it is outrageous. They come to Spain to improve their economic situation; if they do not manage, the best thing for all is that they return, not to fund their stay.
In summary, the PP is not an ally.
