How Barcelona Became a Victim of the Barcelona Process

The murders on the pedestrian street of La Rambla in Barcelona on August 17, 2017 were not the first Islamic terrorist attack in Spain. On March 11, 2004, 192 people were killed, and around two thousand injured, in the Madrid train bombings.

In hindsight, that attack marked a new phase in the modern Islamic Jihad against Europe. After the Madrid bombings, London was hit with deadly bombings on July 7, 2005. In recent years, the frequency of jihadist attacks on European soil has increased dramatically.

It is probably not a coincidence that Spain was an early target of Islamic terror. The Iberian Peninsula, present-day Portugal and Spain, was for centuries under Islamic rule. Militant Muslims have repeatedly made it clear that for them, reconquering Spain is a priority.

    I am willing to admit I don’t care about Catalan. It’s useful to me to me use them to beat Spaniards over the head for their hypocrisy and antisemitism. Whether they are forced, literally by force to stay in Spain or break off and become the Iberian Caliphate I don’t care either way. Let it burn. Or not.

  • Spain is like the other western countries in Europe that refused to accept that cultures matters.

      Look guys
      The northern part of Spain aas never really occupied for very long time. So yet another lie about how Spain belongs to them. Hell they own nothing and we don’t owe those lowlife scum anything but a bullet and a kick to the balls

      Now here a liitle known tidbit. A lot of Moroccans aren’t really; they’re Berber. Further a lot of Catalans dislike the foreigners and not just the usual suspects but Romanians, Bulgars and others. The biggest problem is that the regions don’t control immigration but Madrid. So they tend to toss them in Catalunya as a way to dilute national identity. Yeah the Catalan elite also suffer from kumbayism but they’re closer to the ground andhear the complaints so they have to moderate their enthusiasm.
      In any case, the Moslem community needs to be kick out after the Barcelona attacks. They’re fifth column illegal combatants and need to be treated as such

      • Spain is not going to do that any more than Britain or France will.

        I’m afraid the Kool-Aid has been drunk.
