Pictured is Tina Solomon, who coordinated the event. I JTA Spain's president visited Israel and the West Bank and received a medal from the Palestinian Authority president. President Jos~ Luis'Ro- drfguez Zapatero arrived in Tel Aviv on Oct. 15 for his one-day visit, which was part of a larger tour that included Syria. Spain is interested in expanding its role to help restart peace negotiations between Israelis and Pales- tinians. Zapatero told Israel's daily Ma'ariv that Spare wants to open a new page in bilateral relations. "Spain is a friend of Israel." the socialist leader said. "When we criticize one another, we do so as friends." Accompanied by Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos, the trip to Israel included meetings with Israeli President Shi- mon Peres. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and opposition leader Tzipi Livni of the Kadima party. Zapatero also went to the West Bank city of Ramallah, where P.A. President Mahmoud Abbas gave him a medal of honor for the Spanish government's support for the "liberty and independence of the Palestin- ian people." Asked about his position on the Goldstone report on the Gaza war, which blamed Israel for war crimes and which Israel has discounted as inherently biased. Zapa- tero said, "The response to the report should be intel- ligent, rational and in no way should be an obstacle to the peace process. I know that it is a very sensitive subject in Israel and we should act with caution." Zapatero also denied a recent report by the Anti- Defamation League express- ing concern over an "alarm- ing rise" in anti-Semitism in Spain; a survey had shown 75 percent of Spanish respon- dents believed Jews have "too much power" in international financial markets. "There is no anti-Semitism in Spain in any of its expres- sions." Zapatero said. "Not every commentary, publica- tion or photograph should be considered anti-Semitic. The best proof is that today there are no anti-Semitic acts in Spain."
