Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I disagree. They are offering their support to "defeat" ETA along the lines of the "anti-terrorist agreement" which Zapatero and Aznar entered into in 2001, excluding other political parties (including the Basque ones).

it's a poisoned pill, IMHO.

They offer Zapatero support to pursue the PP agenda, and they still oppose any dialogue. The Spanish parliament voted to "allow the government to negotiate peace should ETA give up armed struggle" with the opposition of the PP (including street demonstrations). That has been Zapatero's agenda since last May. It was suspected that he must have had some information about movements within ETA, and this confirms all that Zapatero has been implying.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
