Eight Jihadist Groups Have Settled in Spain

AMDG at La Yijad en Eurabia has an alarming report about the presence of terrorist mujahideen in Spain. First, some excerpts from his translation of a Spanish news article:

According to antiterrorist sources consulted by 20 minutes, eight Jihadist groups have already settled in Spain and are located mostly in Catalonia, Madrid, Andalusia and Valencia.

Their threat is real, since most of these sleeping cells “can be activated at any time and perpetrate criminal attacks”.

Three of these groups have a remarkable appeal among the Moslem community in Spain, especially among the young men that the National police defines as “second generation”, that is, children of immigrants born in Spain, with higher education and western lifestyle. They do not seem to be radical Islamists. [This paragraph just repeats conventional info. Moreover, there is not yet a “second generation” of Muslim immigrants in Spain]

The first of these groups is Al Qaeda for the Maghreb, the former Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat. It has been responsible for the last big terrorist attacks in the north of Africa; in their statements they use to call for jihad in order to take back Ceuta, Melilla and Al Andalus.


The second group is the Islamic Combat Group of Morocco (GICM), detected in Madrid and Catalonia. They are the authors of the 11-M attack. [The responsibility for the attack has been never clear]

The third movement is linked with the ideological group Takfir Wal Hijra (Anathema and Exile), the most violent and radical movement of Islamic fundamentalism.

AMDG offers some commentary:
- - - - - - - - -
The fact that Spain is one of the targets of the Third Jihad is not surprising. Muslims have the religious obligation to expand Islam — mostly political Islam; conversion can be forced later on in many ways — and in particular they have the compelling obligation to retrieve those lands on which Islam once ruled. Al Andalus — that is Spain, and not only the south of Spain, the modern Andalucía — was once under Mohammedan yoke and is therefore among the priorities of the Jihad.

The answer by Spaniards to this threat cannot be more discouraging. Spanish government withdrew its troops from Iraq immediately after the first terrorist attack, even if they were not combat troops. Their next initiative was the proposal of the Alliance of Civilizations. Spanish citizenship showed their spinelessness the day after the attack, flocking together in massive demonstrations with white painted hands and pathetic slogans like “Terrorism = Pain¨, “No more death” or “Death will not suppress your voices”.

AMDG also notes that Spanish Government is currently “negotiating” (i.e., paying the ransom) for the release of 26 Spanish sailors kidnapped by Somali pirates.

This ties in nicely with an item on BBC Radio 4 yesterday in which a member of Spain's Socialist government was boasting to the interviewer about the success of their mass immigration policy, and offering to share their expertise in this area with Britain and other EU countries (as if these needed any encouragement!)
The main subject of the item was actually the collapse of the birthrate in Europe and how various countries were tackling the problem. The French for example now claim the highest birth rate as a result of various financial inducements to couples having a third child. This was contrasted with Spain which apparently now has the lowest birthrate. A couple there would have to have 16 children to obtain the benefits on offer to French women with three children. The Spanish solution is to complacently invite ever more immigrants to replace the aging work force - it's not that big a surprise that some of those invited are mainly interested in the work of Jihad.

Carnackiuk, it is amazing what you are saying. As a matter of fact the first we are hearing the first declarations of the left on the repatriation of immigrants in order to cope with the looming economic crisis that is starting.

I have pending a post on the Spanish situation on immigration. I will draft something this weekend.
