I have never been much of a fan of politician, columnist, and TV chat-show guest Pilar Rahola, as readers of Iberian Notes undoubtedly know, but she's one of the few leading Catalans (Catalans? Europeans) who has taken a stand and spoken up against European anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism. For this she is to be congratulated despite her general obnoxiousness. Here's an interview with her that was picked up by FrontPage magazine. She doesn't say anything particularly original; it is a sign of the deep anti-Semitism in Europe that Pilar Rahola is about the most distinguished person we can find saying such morally obvious things.
