In a column by Ignacio Ortiz on the Spanish media Atalayar, the vice-president of the association Fórum Canario Saharaui, indicated that in recent months, the polisario has experienced a “horribilis” autumn following the succession of hard blows for the movement. separatist.
“Even if they try to turn a lie into truth by repeating it dozens of times, they will hardly succeed if they indulge in hyperbole with such passion. But it’s their strategy, and they exercise it with peace of mind.”he commented in the face of the flood of fake news and false accusations to which the separatist movement is engaged.
The author evokes the complicit silence of a large fringe of the Spanish press, in favor of the separatist thesis, which has still not swallowed the end of the Spanish colonial era and the return to Moroccan control of the Sahara.
“The successive news that has surrounded the Polisario Front and its interests throughout this autumn, mostly negative, has been little or not mentioned. “, affirmed the Spaniard, adding that nevertheless, it was a real autumn “horrifying” who tiptoed through the Spanish media, pointing out that ” It is not a coincidence “ if it was handled that way.
This bad series, he continues, worthy of the dismissal of any coach if we express it in footballing terms, probably began on September 22 and 23 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, with the successful holding by the Movement Saharawi for Peace of the 1st edition of its International Conference for Peace.
The author indicates having read at the time of the outpouring around the holding of the conference, “all kinds of stories based on the misinformation and inventiveness of the (political and media) friends of the Polisario in Spain”.
In the account of the members of the polisario and their relays in the Spanish press, Las Palmas would have been transformed into a playground for Moroccan spies, a Cold War scenario, and this forum would be a Hispano-Moroccan conspiracy aimed at “threatening the cause of the Polisario (and those who live from it)”.
The Spanish journalist, anti-Moroccan and pro-polisario, Ignacio Cembrero, takes for his rank for his rantings. Cembrero should have “definitely a potential Oscar for Best Original Screenplay”, wrote Ignacio Ortiz.
In October, the disillusion continued with an unprecedented movement of defiance which manifested itself among the youth of the Polisario. The latter used the movement’s media to spread their distrust of the aging ruling class, which does not renounce the privileges and the money drawn from this charade still in place for 50 years.
“We have witnessed many events nationally and internationally which have laid bare the pack of fanatics led by Brahim Ghali and his leadership. First of all, we have witnessed internal denunciations and reproaches made public by the youth of the Polisario against its leaders”, he listed.
But, according to Ignacio Ortiz, the most relevant aspect of this black October of the polisario was undoubtedly to note that it is the Polisario Front itself “acknowledged numerous cases of internal repression and multiple human rights violations during its half-century of existence”,even if it was only done by pure calculation and to “amuse the gallery”, without there being any real reparations, especially since these excuses were rejected by the victims, a large number of whom ‘was not cited, nor the details of the crimes specified.
For the vice-president of the association Fórum Canario Saharaui, the polisario had nevertheless just revealed its true face by recognizing “for the first time in 50 years, the commission of crimes against humanity in the Algerian camps of Tindouf against its own dissident population.
While citing the criminal cases against Brahim Ghali in Spain and commending the perseverance of Judge Rafael Lasala who heard from one of the victims of the leader of the separatist militia, Fadel Breika, the author of the opinion piece considered that the “a real slap that the Polisario received” was that of the content of the recent resolution 2654 of the United Nations Security Council.
“In addition to reaffirming the position of the Council since 2007, and through it of the international community, that the solution to this regional conflict must be political, realistic, pragmatic, lasting and based on compromise, the resolution also denounced the bad practices of the Polisario on fundamental issues that also affect basic rights” he said.
And to point out that the Security Council has expressly asked humanitarian organizations to “the delivery of humanitarian aid is done in accordance with the good practices of the United Nations”,because of the regular and repeated diversion of this aid for personal ends with the connivance of the Polisario. A diversion confirmed in several reports from the High Commissioner for Refugees and the European Union Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).
