Wiesenthal Centre Delighted at the Resignation of Spanish Politician Calling Adversary “Nazi Jew”

June 9, 2023

Paris - The Centre’s Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels, noted that the Centre’s report - regarding the President of the PSOE (Socialist Party) in Seville, Amparo Rubiales - was picked up in Europa Press and other media outlets.

Rubiales had attacked PP (Centrist Party) National Coordinator, Sen. Elias Bendodo, calling him a “Nazi Jew”. After a sort of rectification, she called Bendodo, who is a Sephardi Jew, only a “Nazi.”

The Wiesenthal Centre, together with Spanish Jews, “are delighted that our action has led to Rubiales’ resignation. May this serve as a lesson for others involved in the political arena.”

“The PP is presenting a complaint against her for 'hate crime' in a Seville Court, which we support,” concluded Samuels.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations in the United States. It is an NGO at international agencies including the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the OAS, the Council of Europe and the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino).
