All Europe can bring itself to do is “pray for Barcelona”

13 people killed in Barcelona. There is no strategic reason to attack Spain, a poor country, nonexistent on the military and international fronts. Radical Islam simply loves killing “infidels”, especially on the Ramblas. And the intimidation works.

It was a spectacular sequence in 2004: the bombs at Atocha, the elections, Zapatero’s victory, the rapid withdrawal from Iraq. Then we should have begun to understand that the West, this West, was falling apart. I hope that the candle shops in Barcelona are closed. The more we light candles, the more they enjoy butchering us.
