SCARY! Looking for Signs:Spain (and France)(and Itlay)

Today Spaniards go to the polls to elect a new president.

*** ASSASSINATION

this just in: Socialist city councilman Isaias Carrasco was shot dead just hours before Spain’s elections began today. The 42-year-old was shot dead near his home in the Basque town of Mondragon.

The cynic in me is suspicious–after all, Zapatero was elected in 2004 on a wave of panic after Muslim Terorrists bombed Madrid’s train station. Early this week, polls showed Popular Party (Conservative) candidate Mariano Rajoy was slightly ahead of the socialist incumbent, Zapatero. The timing of the assassination is too convenient–and appears to demonstrate the violence of the Right–although the Basque separatists are not affiliated with the Popular party. A new killing drama by might be the edge that Zapatero needed to edge out Rajoy, and keep Spain firmly in the grip of anti-family socialists.

Original post:

The current feckless–no, dangerous!–president of Spain is Jose Zapatero, the socialist who issued in anti-family policies including “rapid divorce” and “gay marriage.” He was elected on the panicky backlash just days after Muslim terrorists bombed Madrid’s train station in 2004. The challenger is Mariano Rajoy, of the more conservative People’s Party. Rajoy has the support of the Spanish bishops. In December over a million Spaniards jammed into Madrid to hear a message from the Pope and to support the natural family.spain.jpg

Rajoy’s campaign called for restrictions on the Islamic veil and proposes that immigrants sign a legal contract to integrate into Spanish society. I may be looking for signs, but his goal of curbing Islamic immigrants, customs and excesses appear to be a message: Rajoy is from Galicia the province in Spain where Santiago de Compostela is home to the relics of St. James the greater. St. James is the patron of Spain, the saint invoked as Catholics fought to free themselves of Muslim domination. Please pray, ask St. James for his intercession on behalf of Spain.

Pray also for France–municipal elections tomorrow. A Muslim is running for mayor of Strasbourg: Mohammed Latreche of the Party of the Muslims of France.

Americans take note: Mohammed ‘s campaign promises “real change.” No kidding. Have we heard this before? The Muslim candidate calls for Halal food in government institutions (schools, universities, hospitals).

We can be sure that is just the beginning of the Islamization of Strasbourg.

Meanwhile, Italy’s national parliament is dissolved and elections are scheduled for April 13th. As in other European countries, family policy and cultural rights are at stake.

—John Paul II, intercede for Europe, we pray.
