Al-Qaeda lays claim to Spain....

Are the Spanish ready to fight?
The emergence of a new al-Qaeda-linked organization in Northern Africa is alarming Spain, which is concerned about Islamists' calls for the reconquest of the country they regard as a lost part of the Muslim world.

"We will not be in peace until we set our foot again in our beloved al-Andalus," al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said on claiming responsibility for an attack which killed at least 24 people in Algiers on Wednesday.

Al-Andalus is the Moorish name for Spain, parts of which were ruled by Muslims for about eight centuries until the last Moorish bastion, Granada, succumbed to the Christian Reconquest in 1492.

The terrorists will undoubtedly attempt to extend their offensive from Northern Africa to European soil, anti-terrorism judge Baltasar Garzon warned, cautioning that Spain was at a "very high risk" of suffering an Islamist attack.

The reference to al-Andalus was not the first by al-Qaeda, which has also vowed to put an end to the Spanish "occupation" of the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla on the Moroccan coast.

Such announcements worry the security services in Spain, where 29 mainly Moroccan suspects are on trial for the 2004 Madrid train bombings that killed 191 and injured about 1,800 people.

You know, there's an easy solution to solve the islamic nutbar problem, one that will be implemented if Iran ever decides to turn Israel into a parking lot: drop a nuclear warhead on Mecca. Destroy the centre of this barbaric, idolatrous religion and the house of cards collapses.

Spain capitulated to the Islamofacists by withdrawing from Iraq after the Madrid bombings.

After Chamberlain's Munich capitulation of 1938, Churchill warned, "You were given a choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour and you will have war."

Spain and Europe had better wake up quickly!

Andalusians may feel nostalgic about Spain, but that will pass, Islam does not tolerate any history but its own - the reason they blew up the Bhuddist statues in Afstan - so Andalusians won't even know Spain existed in the future.
