AZNAR RUFFLING FEATHERS with his remarks at the Hudson Institute the other day. Everybody here, including many in his own party, thought he'd gone too far. Only for seeing so many biempensants and PC-people with their eyes popping out, it was worth it.

I think he would have overstretched his point nalogy if he said what they said he said, so to speak. He didn't actually call on Muslims to apologize for occupying Spain for 800 years: if so, Spaniards would have to apologize for what the conquistadors did in America, wouldn't they. His main point was that he thought that the Pope shouldn't apologize for his famous remarks, and revealed the double standard: “It is interesting to note that while a lot of people in the world are asking the pope to apologise for his speech, I have never heard a Muslim say sorry for having conquered Spain and occupying it for eight centuries,” were his words.

And on that I agree completely.
