In 2004 there was the Madrid train bombing, the subsequent Spanish election saw a party opposed to war in the Middle East and Spanish intervention there, become the ruling party. Did Spain retain its distanced stance since then or has something changed? If no change, then it seems acquiescence buys a decade of ~peace.

Why oh why didn't you share that piece of wisdom in the Charlotteville thread?

CNN: There Will Be Questions About Whether Barcelona Attack Was ‘Copycat’ of Charlottesville


Of course it was. No muslim could think of something brutal like this on their own - only white Nazis are capable to think up such a devious method of attack. But with the help of Allah, these copycats have been able to travel back through time and attack people in Nizza and Berlin with the same method that they - just to remind you - copied from the Nazis in America.

And LOL at Red_Army who scrambles to defend The Religion of Peace(TM), because an ideology can by no means turn it followers into murderous bastards. That's some unique feature of National Socialism. Stalinist terror, for example, is good violence, and Islamic terror is totally divorced from its parent ideology.

Compare that with the twittering hysteria over at the Charlotteville thread, where people were foaming at the mouth over the driver. Of course, had he been shouting Allahu Akbar, we'd have seen no such reaction. Then the one dead would've been a regrettable singular case.

The difference is nobody regardless of their political opinion on this thread is making excuses for this terrorist scum. No break lights on, no shouldn't have been there, no car trying to move out the way, was attacked first or was he travelling at low speed. Just pure condemnation by everyone.

The difference is that in this thread, every leftie scurries to divorce the driver from his ideology, while over there, everyone is suddenly a Nazi.

That is how it works unfortunately. I read that the injuries toll in this attack and a second related attack is as high as 80 people. If someone isn't white then it has nothing to do with ideology, if a paranoid schizophrenic kills one person during a riot and he's white, it's all about white supremacy. Crazy stuff.

I wouldn't say every leftie. Some of us dislike Islam even more than Christianity and see terrorists of any stripe are the worst kind of scum.

And it isn't like every time an ant gets stepped on the right isn't blaming Islam and demanding collective punishment. The sides are oddly kinda mirrored, they both want to see the side they dissent from get exterminated from existence.

You can thank the likes of Merkel and Obama for that. Spearheading policies that empower extremist groups worldwide, abroad and at home. Also the media which has been completely co-opted by one of the extremes.

Totally agree. Just hang these violent idiots without giving them the honor of receiving a group label. How about a headline that says " Moron drives vehicle into people." It is an injustice to give them any credit for having a belief system.
Wolf Blitzer is a cowardly moron. His voice alone stirs up so much anger in me, I refuse to listen to him. Became famous while acting like a coward. :*(

In Israel the feeling is divided. Many are happy that Europe is finally paying for their Arabophilia, but there are many football fans who fly frequently to Spain for matches and love all thing Spaniard.

The real question is what is actually to be done about such things, other than getting out of the Middle East, gritting our teeth and living morosely with the hangover of imperialism, as we did here the hangover of English strutting in Ireland. Working up silly right-wing hatreds doesn't meet the need: .Hitler's murder-gangs didn't wipe out the Jews, and there are far, far more Muslims.

Bernard Lewis the greatest living Islamic scholar predicts it

'Europe Will Be Islamic by the End of the Century'
Die Welt

"Europe will be a part of the Arab West or Maghreb," he told the newspaper. "Migration and demography indicate this. Europeans marry late and have few or no children. But there's strong immigration: Turks in Germany, Arabs in France and Pakistanis in England. At the latest, following current trends, Europe will have Muslim majorities in the population at the end of the 21st century."
