Europe Died in Auschwitz - A Translation

Recently while catching up on my blog reading, I stopped in at SEARCH. Often one finds interesting stuff in the comments and I wasn't disappointed this time. My friend, Leap Frog, a fabulous Canadian lady, left a note to see Free Republic for an article making the blog and e-mail rounds. It's entitled "Europe got Muslims for Jews." It's a translation of an article from a Spanish newspaper. "The truth must be told! All European life died in Auschwitz" by Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez.

As interesting as I and others found the article, I was skeptical as to it's provenance. I wasn't so sure that a Spaniard would have such a clear eyed view of the "Muslim Question" after the explosive events in Madrid, the over-turning of the Spanish government, and finally the withdrawal of the brave Spanish troops from Iraq. So I went Googling. This is what I found and I reproduce the article here attempting to maintain the integrity of the original page design from Gentiuno:

Europa murió en Auschwitz

Caminaba por la Rambla del Raval (Barcelona) y lo vi claro:

"La verdad no se casa con nadie" (refrán español)

Nosotros asesinamos a 6 millones de judíos, para acabar importando 20 millones de musulmanes por lo común integristas.

¿Qué no es posible generalizar? Bien, en vista de como nos han ido las cosas yo creo que sí se puede generalizar. ¿Qué si hay excepciones? De acuerdo… pero son excepciones.

Para el resto, es decir, en general debe decirse que en Auschwitz quemamos la cultura, la inteligencia y la capacidad de crear riqueza ; quemamos al pueblo del mundo, el que se autoproclama el elegido de Dios. Porque es el pueblo que ha proporcionado a la Humanidad las mayores mentes, capaces de cambiar el rumbo de la historia, (Cristo , Marx , Einstein , Freud), y grandes momentos de progreso y bienestar.

Y es preciso decir también que el resultado de relajar fronteras y del relativismo cultural y de valores bajo el absurdo pretexto de la tolerancia han sido estos 20 millones de musulmanes, a menudo analfabetos y fanáticos que Europa ha dejado entrar y que en el mejor de los supuestos están, como decía, en esta Rambla del Raval, expresión máxima del tercer mundo y del gueto, y que en el peor de los casos preparan atentados como el de Manhattan o el de Madrid , en los pisos de protección oficial que les proporcionamos día a día.

Hemos cambiado a la cultura, por el fanatismo la capacidad de crear riqueza, por la voluntad de destruirla . A la inteligencia, por la superstición.

Hemos cambiado el instinto de superación de los judíos,- que ni en las peores condiciones imaginables no se han cansado -nunca- de querer un mundo mejor en paz, por la pulsión suicida de Leganés. Los diamantes como riqueza portátil para la próxima vez que deban huir, por las piedras palestinas contra cualquier intento de paz.

Hemos cambiado el orgullo de sobrevivir, por la obsesión fanática por morir , y de paso matarnos a nosotros y a nuestros hijos. ¡Que error que hemos cometido!

(There are many translations of this article, but none seemed right, so I have translated the Spanish myself. I neither read nor understand Spanish, but I think I've come closer to the authors intent than the other, more literal translations available. I welcome any corrections--Indy)

Europe Died in Auschwitz

I walked down the Boulevard of the Raval in Barcelona and I clearly understood the Spanish proverb: "The truth marries with nobody." We assassinated upwards of 6 million Jews only to end up importing 20 million, in general, unified Muslims.

Isn’t it impossible to generalize? Well, in view of the things that have happened to us since [the Madrid bombings] I believe that, yes, it is possible to generalize. What if there are exceptions? I agree there are exceptions, but they are exceptions.

For the rest, in general, it must be said that in Auschwitz we burned the culture, intelligence, and the capacity to create wealth; we burned the people of the world, those proclaiming themselves the chosen people of God, because they had provided to Humanity the greater minds that were able to change the course of history, (Christ, Marx, Einstein, Freud), and great moments of progress and well-being.

And, it is also fair to say that the result of relaxing the borders, the cultural relativism, and the values under the absurd pretext of tolerance has been that Europe has allowed 20 million Muslims, illiterate and often fanatical, to immigrate. In one of the greatest expressions of being taken for granted, as it is said on the Boulevard of the Raval, the poverty of the third world and the ghetto have been brought here, and in the worst case, to prepare attacks like those of Manhattan and Madrid under the official protection that we provide them daily.

We have exchanged culture for fanaticism; wealth creation for voluntary destruction: intelligence for superstition.

The instinct of beating the Jews, who, neither in the worst conditions imaginable, have themselves tired – never – of wanting a better, peaceful world, we have exchanged for the suicidal impulse. We have exchanged the portable wealth of diamonds for the Palestinian stones to be used against any intent of peace.

We have exchanged the pride to survive for the fanatics obsessional pursuit of death for themselves, for us, and for our children.

What a mistake we have made!

This is just an example of seeing the truth that is right in front of their noses. I wonder if he'd make a trip next door and explain the obvious to SOFO.

SoFo will figure it out when his ole lady gets beaten for showing an ankle.

Indi, if I may, I would like to remind all to visit the uso site and help if they can. thanks for the space.

Not sure I want to see SoFo's wife's ankle!

This is most interesting. I have a had a version of this translation on my site for some time now, but frankly your translation is more to the original feeling of the article in Spanish.
