Populist party Vox in Spain has gained 12 parliamentary seats in the regional election of Andalusia. For the first time in DECADES, a right-wing party, has won seats in Andalusia on Sunday. The Vox party won 12 seats which surpassed the five seats predicted.

Vox are tough on immigration and since being founded in 2014, have been called far-right, populist, anti-immigrant and anti-Islam.

The party’s leader, Santiago Abascal thinks its recent increase in support is because it is “in step with what millions of Spaniards think”.

The Socialist Party has ruled Andalusia for 36 years and winning 33 seats on Sunday were still the leading party.

However, they fell short of a majority, which means that the conservative Popular Party (PP), having come in second, could potentially form a coalition in the region with Vox and the centre-right Citizens party. The three parties hold a majority of seats.

The nationalist movement is storming Europe!

Muslim migrant punches a female doctor and tells her that being treated by a woman is against Islam – where is the outrage?

By 

A doctor from Linares (Jaén) has received a brutal punch from a young illegal Pakistani because he resisted being treated by a woman. According to what he said on Wednesday before the judge, the reason is because “his religion forbids him.”

According to Carlos Garrido, the victim’s lawyer, the events occurred at two o’ clock in the morning of Monday at the Virgen de Linarejos health center.

The assailant was in the waiting room waiting to be seen when suddenly, “he threw himself to the ground and started screaming”.

A watchman witnessed the scene and helped him up and seated him in a chair. “Nobody understood what was happening to him, the young man indicated that he could communicate in Arabic or Italian,” adds the lawyer.

It was at that moment that the attacker hit a female doctor in the face with a punch that caused her to fall backwards to the ground. Several of the doctor’s colleagues then immobilized the Pakistani man, so as to avoid further violence.

The National Police immediately detained the aggressor. On his appearance before the Court this Wednesday, the defendant has acknowledged the facts, but added that “he does not remember anything”. In relation to the cause that pushed him to hit the victim, he added that “my religion does not allow women to invade my space.”

The victim is currently on leave due not only to her physical injuries, but also the psychological consequences that persist after this type of attack.

The defendant was in Spain illegally and had come from Italy. The coroner does not rule out that he was under the influence of a drug.

The Prosecutor’s Office is asking for five months in prison, a restraining order and compensation of some 600 euros.

The attacker walked free without charges and the police have opened a file to him as well as removed his passport for security reasons.
