The Spanish Jewish community has wired UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim to protest against the “barbaric treatment ” inflicted on Israeli POWs in Syria. Referring to reports of “massacre and torture” of the Israelis, the community expressed its “horror in the face of such savage acts.” At the same time, the community reaffirmed its “total and unconditional solidarity with the Israeli people, who are an integral park of the Jewish people in its sacred struggle for survival and a just peace.”
