Some 500 Madrid residents, carrying Spanish and Israeli flags, joined in a demonstration of solidarity with the people of Israel and the recent victims of terror, outside the Israeli embassy on Sunday.

In the light drizzle, against a background of Matisyahu, the president of the Madrid Jewish Community, David Hatchwell, also addressed the gathering, enumerated the recent terror attacks, pointing a warning finger at Palestinian “made in the Middle East” terrorism, comparing it to other terrorism that is being exported, and warning of potential danger to Europe and Spain if the government does not take a clear stance against terror.

He slammed the Spanish Foreign Ministry for its “immoral equidistance” and its use of the terms “cycle of violence” and “disproportionality” when in these cases there were very clearly divided victims and aggressors.

Israeli ambassador Daniel Kutner was unable to attend, being out of the country, but he sent his adviser, Yinam Cohren, and a message of thanks for the support shown to Israel in “these difficult times.”
