"Some Israelis remember that during his first mandate, between 1996 and 1999, Netanyahu freed Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, founder and spiritual leader of Hamas in exchange of three Mossad agents arrested in Amman when they wanted to murder Khaled Meshaal, the leader of Hamas in the exile. Meshaal currently lives in Damascus and Sheikh Yassin was murdered in Gaza by the Israeli aviation during the second intifada."
So, according to Público and its journalist Eugenio García Gascón, Palestinian terrorists who killed innocent Israelis and are currently under Israel's custody are "militiamen responsible for deadly attacks and strikes" instead of "criminals responsible for terrorist attacks", while the Mossad wanted to "murder" Khaled Meshaal and the Israeli Air Force "murdered" Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, in spite of the fact that they were enemies of Israel (as well as criminals) during wartime.
This exemplifies again how the Spanish mainstream media distorts reality when it comes to Israel and the Palestinians.

But he doesn't only write novels, poems or scripts, but also opinion articles to be published by Spanish daily El Mundo. And, as Libertad Digital reported on Wednesday, March 16, 2011, one of his last ideas consisted of using the human and national tragedy Japan is currently living to target Israel.
Gala explained in his article about what he calls the "human fleas" that "lessons such as the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan should teach them other kinds of behaviour: unity in the face of helplessness, generosity, (...). But they don't learn." And then he writes about Israel in this manner: "So we see Israel there, the most racist country, going back to Gaza after the fright."
This is not the first time he targets Israel or even the Jews. In an article published on February 5, 2009 by El Mundo, he explained that "the Jewish people will succumb again. Like it happened many times: pogroms, voluntary or unvoluntary ghettos, extermination, persecutions, expulsions,... From Egypt to Sepharad, from Canaan to Zion: all of them promised lands. Shouldn't they ask themselves why does always happen the same to them? Or is the rest of the world wrong?"
Spanish journalist David Gistau answered Gala through an article published on February 8, 2009 by El Mundo. He wrote that Gala's "reasoning makes Hitler an executor arm of a hate morally justified by a majority", as well as "we should ask Gala whether he would apply the same logic to (...) understand other persecutions (...). For example, those which were suffered by homosexuals."
Did Gala react to Gistau's argument by apologizing to the Jews? No, he didn't. On March 5, 2009, another article written by Gala was published by El Mundo. The Spanish writer explained about the Jews that: "Always the same: or persecuted or persecutors. Or both things at the same time."
