Five years after March 11th, which made Spain a target of the Islamist terror, Interior Minister has stated that “Spain is now a source of Human Resources for future terrorists”, “situated in the 1st place in the ranking of their preferred recruitement’s places for Al-Qaeda in Europe, and, at the same time, it continues to be a target of international terrorism”.
Hmm, just tell this to Obama. Giving money to Hamas is not the solution cannot be considered a way to show respect for Muslims.
A two-week operation to secure the frontier city of Peshawar, which sits on a key supply route for U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, killed 25 suspected militants, a Pakistani official said Monday.Security forces backed by warplanes and artillery swept through an area between the city and Pakistan’s wild tribal belt, where Taliban and al-Qaida militants have found refuge.
Zafrullah Khan, commander of paramilitary Frontier Constabulary troops in the area, said his force and police have taken control of 22 of 25 targeted villages and would clear the others within a week.
Radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada has been arrested after allegedly attempting to flee the country. Qatada, described as Osama bin Laden’s “right-hand man in Europe”, is under strict bail conditions following an earlier Court of Appeal decision to refuse his deportation.
After being freed from HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire in June, he was ordered to spend at least 22 hours a day confined to his West London home, wearing an electronic tag.
However, according to The Sun newspaper, Qatada, 47, has been arrested after allegedly breaching his bail. The newspaper reported that the UK Borders Agency received a tip-off that he was planning to leave Britain.
Of course, no one never imagined this could happen… Just kidding.
This is especially the case in prisons around Casablanca, where the majority of al-Qaida insurgents have been held, the Med Basin Newsline reported Tuesday, citing the city’s Okasha prison, where al-Qaida-aligned inmates were reported to have taken over an entire ward.
Sources told the news agency that opponents there were intimidated or assaulted until they were transferred or accepted al-Qaida’s rule, which includes strict adherence to Sharia law. Some who have opposed the Islamic militants — most of whom were convicted for terrorism offenses — have been strangled to death, the sources said.

Around 40 African migrants took advantage of flood damage at the border to cross into Spain’s North African enclave of Melilla from Morocco on Monday, police and local government officials said.
Just consider that Moroccan king has given several amnesties to jailed terrorists who had not been condemned for killing people. And then the state of Moroccan prisons. Hmm, what a marvellous perspective.
A senior Whitehall official who left highly classified intelligence documents about al-Qaida and the capabilities of the Iraqi security forces on a train was fined £2,500 today by Westminster magistrates court after admitting negligence.
Richard Jackson, 37, who was on secondment from the Ministry of Defence to the Cabinet Office at the time, 37, of Yateley, Hampshire, was charged under a section of the Official Secrets Act covering the safeguarding of information.
It is the first prosecution of its kind and it had been widely assumed in Whitehall he would be disciplined by internal procedures rather than charged under the criminal law. The court heard he had already taken a “drastic” pay cut and effectively been demoted by three grades.
I don’t know the facts, but it seems rather odd someone who is a senior official forgets such documents in a train, isn’t it?
Iran is halfway to a nuclear bomb, and Hezbollah, Hamas and Syria are using the status-quo to significantly rearm, the head of the Israeli military intelligence research division said, according to media reports.
This is surprising (no, not the least…)… As these other news aren’t either:
Their names are included on a list of enemies in the video released by Al-Qaeda’s production arm, al-Sahab, on the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The old war between Sunni and Shiite Muslims continues…
Pakistan’s top leaders were to dine at the Marriott devastated by a truck bombing over the weekend, but changed the venue at the last minute, a senior official said Monday. A hotel official, however, denied there were any plans for a government dinner.
I really believe more plausible that the terrorist attack took place to make Pakistani leadership break definitely with US in counterterrorism matters.
