Results of Appeasement
Madrid bombings appears to have been an illusion, as predicted. Spain announced that it captured seven terrorists plotting to bonb their High Court, according to Reuters:
Police arrested seven suspected Islamic militants in raids across Spain on Monday to foil a planned bomb attack on the High Court, judicial sources said. The arrests came seven months after train bombs killed 191 people in Madrid.
The seven suspects, including four Algerians and one Moroccan, were arrested in the southern region of Andalusia, the Mediterranean city of Valencia and Madrid.
Further arrests could be made in the coming hours as part of the operation against a radical and violent Muslim network, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
Perhaps the Spanish electorate will understand now that appeasing terrorists only leads to more terrorism, a lesson that Europeans learned the hard way 60 years ago. The Islamic lunatics don't want to be left alone, as many Europeans assume; they want to take over all of the old ummah, which includes most of Spain, especially Andalusia. The political success of the Madrid attacks has emboldened the fanatics to press their advantage, and the so-called "cease fire" announced by Osama bin Laden in the aftermath of Spain's withdrawal from Iraq only exists while tactically important for the next attack.
Look at your history books, people. Appeasement ploys didn't keep the Anglo-Saxons out of Roman Britain, didn't keep the Turks from knocking on the doors of Vienna, didn't keep the Nazis from invading Poland. When a group is determined to conquer you, appeasement only buys you a little time. And then, an enemy, who is even stronger than the time before will be back. It's going to be no different with the Islamo-fascists. They want it all. And if we let them, the whole world would be like Afghanistan under the Taliban. That is the challenge the West faces.
