The real enemy is Islamic terrorism, the rest mere smear campaigns

Terror revisited Spain with tragic results last week as a bunch of madmen ran amok in the heart of Barcelona killing half-a-dozen people and injuring many more. The scale of the terror and destruction bears little resemblance to the carnage visited upon another Spanish city thirteen years ago but that does not make it any less criminal and cowardly.

In 2004, as the attention of much of Spain was focused on the general election a few days away, serial bomb blasts ripped through the heart of Madrid’s commuter train system in morning rush hour killing nearly 200 people. The attacks ignited public anger, unseated the centre-right government in the elections that immediately followed and led to the exit of Spanish troops from Iraq.

    Rubbish. The real enemy is Islam. Islamic terrorism is the fruit of Islam.

    Islam is NOT responsible for Islam !

  • Not merely “half-a-dozen killed and many more wounded” – it was 14 killed and a hundred maimed or wounded, not to mention the survivors having to deal with the loss of their loved ones. And much more was planned, intended.

    Jihad is war, not insanity or criminal conduct. Those killed and injured in Barcelona are not victims, but casualties. Only when governments see what is happening in this perspective can they respond effectively by attacking the sources root and branch.
