Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Saturday that Israel's offensive against Lebanon could fuel radical Islam, as he said the war in Iraq had done. Zapatero said the war in Iraq had led to "radicalization, fanaticism, conflict and instability" in the region and he urged Israel to end hostilities and respect international law. "Those who promoted the war in Iraq told us that after the intervention a horizon of peace would open up," Zapatero told supporters at a Socialist rally in Ibiza in the Balearic Islands. "I hope the lesson given by these facts will make them think things over," he said, referring to Israel. Zapatero on Friday said Israel was wrong in attacking Lebanon and he called on the United Nations and European Union to "actively intervene" to stop the fighting.
