The chef José Andrés has become one of the names of the day in Spain after his very harsh message written in X, formerly Twitter, about the Minister of Social Rights and Agenda 2030, Ione Belarraon account of some statements about Israel.
“Your government is carrying out war crimes in the Gaza Strip, massive bombings, water and electricity cuts, they are not letting in humanitarian aid. Denouncing this genocide is not ‘aligning with Hamas’, it is a democratic obligation. Silence, complicity with terror,” responded the leader of Unidas Podemos on Elon Musk’s social network to a message from the Israeli Embassy in Spain where some members of the Government were criticized for their position in the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
The chef José Andrés entered fully into the conversation leaving a very harsh reply to Belarra, whom he also accused of supporting Russia: “You as a minister have to first recognize that the Hamas attack against civilians is a terrorist act… and that Israel is defending its citizens… then you can ask for restraint and respect for the lives of civilians in Gaza.”
“In the end we must ask for restraint from all parties… but never support the terrorists and the aggressors… besides, do you support Russia? Who has killed children and women and the elderly and civilians? I have not heard you say a word against such a massacre? You are Pro @KremlinRussia_E and Pro Hamas? You do not represent me or Spain. She doesn’t deserve to be a minister….President @sanchezcastejon should remove her from office…”, declared the Princess of Asturias de la Concordia for her work with her NGO, World Central Kitchen.
José Andrés’ reaction has not fallen on deaf ears and people like the actor Guillermo Toledo or the journalist Antón Losada have come out to respond to him. Toledo has been one of the most critical and has stated: “Here is a chef who has been making money off of other people’s misfortunes for years, saying that a minister voted for by millions of people “does not represent Spain” and demanding that the Zionist @sanchezcastejon remove her from office. office”.
And he said: “I’m not going to tell you what you are because they’ll close my account.”
