Hmm, these are the kind of news that make me vomit. How on earth people can be sooooo brute???? I’m going to name this kind of news “World’s going nuts” ūüė°

A security video from an apartment hallway shows at least 10 witnesses ignored a woman’s cries for help for more than an hour as a man beat and sexually assaulted her, prosecutors in Minnesota said.

The surveillance video clearly showed men and women looking out their apartment doors or starting to walk down the hallway before retreating as the woman was assaulted for nearly 90 minutes, police spokesman Tom Walsh said.

Police said they responded to a call of drunken behavior and found Somali immigrant Rage Ibrahim, 25, and a woman lying unconscious in the hallway early Tuesday. The woman’s clothing had been pulled up and she had fresh scratches on her face and blood on her thigh, according to the criminal complaint.

Ibrahim says he is innocent and that the incident was a misunderstanding, according to Omar Jamal, the executive director of the Somali Justice Advocacy Center, who spoke on Ibrahim’s behalf.

Ibrahim says he is innocent and that the incident was a misunderstanding“. Yeah, right. And I believe that.

More about this here: It should be noted that this Jamal slug was convicted of lying to immigration officials and should have already been deported. Law was not fulfilled and a woman was attacked. The every-day’s tale… ūüė°

And father of 7-Year-Old Boy accused of biting Son’s Toes. He bited his son “hard enough to cause deep bruising and crack his toenails“. My goodness, the world is going nuts… ūüė°

From Life Site.Net:

A peaceful pro-life witness was violently assaulted outside an abortion site on Tuesday. Police responded late to his 911 after he was beaten by an unknown visitor to the clinic.
Early on Tuesday morning August 21, three Rockford pro-lifers-Ken Plez, Pat Brady and Kevin Rilott-were praying quietly in front of the Northern Illinois Women’s Center (abortuary) for an end to abortion. A large white truck pulled into the clinic parking lot, and without setting foot on the clinic property, Rilott approached and tried to talk to the people inside.
In a detailed account of the event Rilott described how the pro-choice man got out of his truck and approached him, saying, “You shouldn’t be here, you’re upsetting my wife.” He then began to hit Rilott in the chest, ribs, and stomach. Rilott did not strike back at the man, but managed to call 911. As he was being beaten, he begged for immediate police assistance.
He told his pro-abortion attacker that the police were on the way, but the man said he didn’t care. The assaulter also said that “after he bonded out” he would come back and get him. After breaking Rilott’s sign, the man then went into the abortion clinic.

In India, sex-selective abortions are rocketing. The reason?

A large portion of the Indian population believes that male children enable families to survive and ensure that their parents will be taken care of. Female children are considered a burden for whom parents will have to shell out expensive dowries, which leads many to elect to abort them.

On the other hand, a 2001 census revealed that there were 927 girls for every 1000 boys among children younger than age 7, as opposed to 945 in 1991. Last month, police discovered thirty bags full of aborted and newborn babies in a well near a clinic in eastern India.

Meanwhile, a huge explosion in India has killed at least 44 people. According to CNN, “militants” were responsible for it:

“These are things that will not be openly discussed … we can comment when the investigation is complete,” Home Secretary Shivraj Patil said at a news conference in Hyderabad.

In earlier news conferences, local officials placed the blame squarely on Islamic militants.

Available information points to Pakistani and Bangladeshi groups being behind the blasts,” Y.S.R. Reddy, chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state told reporters. The minister earlier said “this is definitely terrorist activity,” and urged everyone to stay calm.

Moroccan Islamists support pragmatism (well they are going to present themselves to the elections, so it’s better for them to seem moderate. Link in Spanish):

The Party of Justice and Development (PJD), the main Islamist party in the oposition, is going to present a program in which the daily worries of the voters will be the first objective instead of religion in the campaign for the parliamentary elections of September 7th, according to its leader.

Experts consider it’s possible the party will obtain more MPs and could be the main group in an election where more than 30 parties will concur to.

Observers see the result as a measure of the level of disillusion with the liberal and laic elites who have been in charge in Morocco for the last 50 years.

The Parliament only has limited powers in the North African country, where the King Mohammed VIth, controlls all the main sectors from the Army to the religious affairs, and can name the Prime Minister and “veto” laws.

Some analysts say that in any case the elections will help to revitalise some aspects of the body of the governing elite.

“Our agenda is inspired without doubt in our Islamic surrounding, but in an Islamic surrounding linked to the voters’ needs”, told Reuters the PJD’s leader, Abdelilah Benkiran.

[…] “Frankly, the citizens won’t vote for us if we go to the elections to impose the veil on women, the bears on men and to all the people to make them go to the mosque”, he added.

Just let them take power. After four or five years, we speak about this.

About children abuse: Kids forced into domestic servitude in Haiti:

Evans Antoine wakes at 7 a.m. and dusts himself off from his night on the floor. While other children in his middle-class neighborhood overlooking the Haitian capital head to school, the 15-year-old puts on toeless sneakers and gets to work washing dishes, scrubbing floors and running errands at the market. He also works in the yard and sometimes wields a scythe in the family’s fields.

There is little reward for his toil, except for food and a roof over his head. And often, the quality of his work isn’t good enough; his caretakers sometimes hit him with a switch or slap him on the back of the scalp. Once they tied his hands and put a bag over his head before beating him with a stick.

This has been his life for the past three years.

Read it all. Specially interesting is this paragraph: “Haiti revolted against French colonial rule and became the first “black republic” in 1804. With newly emancipated slaves in power, it also became the first nation to outlaw slavery. Dependent on coffee and sugar, however, Haiti kept the plantation system after the revolution, requiring “mandatory labor” of many citizens. The masters were no longer white, but working conditions improved only marginally“.

The proof that changes sometimes don’t change anything really. Just another people step on charge.

More news from Iran: as ever not very promising:

Iran vowed Sunday to use a new 2,000-pound “smart” bomb against its enemies and unveiled mass production of the new weapon, state television reported.

The government first announced development of the long-range guided bomb Thursday, saying it could be deployed by the country’s aging U.S.-made F-4 and F-5 fighter jets.

“We will use these (bombs) against our enemies when the time comes,” Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said on state television Sunday.

Iran often announces new weapons for its arsenal, but the United States maintains that while the Islamic Republic has made some strides, many of these statements are exaggerations.

In China they continue with their magnificent view of Human Rights:

A prominent bishop of the underground Catholic Church in China was arrested on August 23, apparently to prevent him from distributing the Pope’s message to the Church in China.

Bishop Jia Zhiguo of the Zheng Ding diocese was taken into custody on Thursday morning, the US-based Cardinal Kung Foundation reports.

The bishop’s arrest came after several days of tight surveillance in his residence. The Cardinal Kung Foundation reports that visitors to the bishop’s home were held and interrogated by police before being released.

But religious persecution does not only exist in China. In Uzbekistan:

When seven police officers with a video camera raided his home on Sunday morning, 29 July, Nikolai Zulfikarov was away. But this did not stop prosecutors launching a criminal case to punish him for “illegally” organizing a religious community, with a possible sentence of five years’ imprisonment. The small Baptist congregation that meets in his home in the eastern Namangan Region refuses on principle to apply for state registration. One local Baptist told Forum 18 News Service that prosecutors wanted to sentence Zulfikarov immediately, but now there is “total silence”. He added that “it is not clear if this means they will abandon the attempt or if they are moving stealthily behind the scenes”.

More worrying news for Musharraf:

Another defeat for President Gen. Pervez Musharraf in Pakistan’s Supreme Court has narrowed the options for the U.S.-allied military leader as he seeks to extend his rule.

Thursday’s ruling that his arch rival, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, whom Musharraf ousted in a 1999 coup, can return from exile leaves the general vulnerable at home and abroad ahead of crucial elections.

Talks with another ex-prime minister on a pact that would keep Musharraf in office are proving tough. And U.S. impatience with his failure to eliminate Taliban and al-Qaida strongholds near the Afghan border is growing.

Driven by a clamor for the restoration of democracy, the military-led government has responded with calls for national reconciliation.

But Musharraf “is hardly talking from a position of strength,” the Dawn newspaper said in a weekend editorial. Talks with his opponents “must have a one-point agenda: a truly free and fair general election.”

In Brussels they are forbidding Sept 11th’s demonstration against Islamic terrorism, and yet they are letting a Pro-Hizbullah group’s demonstration:

The Arab-European League (AEL), a pro-Hezbollah organization of Arab immigrants in Belgium and the Netherlands, is rallying its members to march in Brussels on 11 September ‚Äúagainst Islamophobia and racism in Europe.‚ÄĚ The AEL demonstration is a response to the request by the Danish-British-German organization Stop the Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) for permission to demonstrate on 9/11 in front of the European Union‚Äôs buildings in Brussels against the introduction of Sharia laws in Europe.

Two weeks ago the SIOE demonstration was banned by Freddy Thielemans, the mayor of Brussels. According to Mr Thielemans the SIOE demonstration is a criminal offence because it ‚Äúincite[s] to discrimination and hatred, which we usually call racism and xenophobia. [This] is forbidden by a considerable number of international treaties and is punished by our penal laws and by the European legislation.‚ÄĚ

Of course, Hizbullah’s members are peaceful, respectful of other people’s lifes and caring. As I said, the world’s going nuts…

Hillary Clinton’s remarks about terrorism are just very similar to the ones made by James Clayburn about Iraq:

“There are circumstances beyond our control, and I think I am better able to handle things I have no control over,” she said. “It’s a horrible prospect to ask yourself ‘What if? What if?’ But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world,” she said. “So I think I’m the best of the Democrats to deal with that as well.”

Nigeria: From Gateway Pundit: Angry Muslim Mob Storms Prison to Lynch Homosexuals. A prison guard has been injured. Will all the Gay Pride’s organisers say something about this? Eehh, no, that’s only said if they are Christian and preferably Catholics the ones who critisize the right to marry. That is an offense grade A. But if fundamentalist Muslims do it, ehh, welll, then it’s only an offense grade Z, at the most…

And now for some Catholic news:

Pope Benedict XVI explains last Sunday’s Gospel:

The way to eternal life is narrow because it is demanding, requires commitment and denial of one‚Äôs own selfishness, Pope Benedict XVI said today in his Sunday angelus address. He was referring to today‚Äôs Gospel in which Jesus calls on his followers to strive to enter the ‚Äú‚Äėnarrow gate‚Äô to eternal life, because many shall seek to enter in, and shall not be able‚ÄĚ.

‚ÄúWhat does the ‚Äėnarrow gate‚Äô mean?‚ÄĚ, the Pope asked pilgrims gathered in the courtyard of his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo. ‚ÄúWhy do many not succeed in entering through it? Is the way reserved for just a few elect?‚ÄĚ

The Pope said it is often a trap and a temptation to interpret this passage as a reference to religious practice as a source of privilege or security. But in reality, ‚Äúthe message of Christ is actually quite the opposite‚ÄĚ, the Pope explained. ‚ÄúAll can enter eternal life, but for everyone, the door is narrow. They are not privileged. The path to the eternal life is open to all, but it is narrow because it‚Äôs demanding, asks for commitment, abnegation, and the mortification of selfishness‚ÄĚ.

As a result of the stress and lack of tranquility of modern life:

More and more Italians, tired from the routine and noise of the city, are opting to spend their vacations in monasteries and convents that offer them a time of reflection and contact with nature.

Many religious communities‚ÄĒeven cloistered convents–have opened their doors to young people and families to join in their daily life of prayer and activities, as well as to listen to their concerns and provide them spiritual guidance.

I think I’m going to book a holiday like that… when I have time for it! ūüėÜ

This poll appeared on Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia some days ago. it was made by Maryland University in Morocco, Pakistan, Indonesia and Egypt.

Summing up the data:

  1. Only 35% of the Moroccans say they are sure that the culprits of the Sept 11 terrorist attacks belong to Al-Qaeda. In general, 21% rejected to answer, 31% says he is not sure, 38% considers they are sure and 10% very sure.
  2. The majority of Muslims opposed to terrorist attacks against civilians perpetrated by Al-Qaeda, but they support some attitudes of the Bin Laden’s net against USA, and they also share its final goals. When asked if Al Qaeda fights for the dignity of the Muslims, 75% of Moroccans answers affirmatively.
  3. In Morocco, the 67% of the people interviewed things that establishing a Global Caliphate is a target of the terrorist organization and 71% is also supporting that objective.
  4. 76%  of the polled subjects also support the strict application of Sharia Law in theis countries.
  5. Asked if the terrorist attacks are justified, Moroccans answer in 34% that they are never justified, 19% not often justified, 19% excuses them often and 16% justifies them usually.
  6. For 84% of Moroccans, the terrorism is a “little problem” and only 13% considers it as a subject of great dimensions.

Just the same day, ex-US ambassador in UN, John Bolton was interviewed by right-wing newspaper La Razón: an excerpt:

-Spain has suffered two terrorist attacks on Lebanon and Yemen. Is Spain and Al-Qaeda objective or they just attack where they can?

-I really believe they are targeting Westerners, and that is why there should be much more cooperation between Europe and US. A lot of people in Europe and some people in the US think that only US is a terrorists’ target. Or only United Kingdom because of its pro-Israeli policy or in Iraq. This is a great error because Al-Qaeda’s long-term objective is to finish West off. Every part of the world is vulnerable.

-Ben Laden and its terrorist organization have reclaimed a lot of times the liberation of Al-Andalus. Should Spanish Government take this threat seriously?

-Yes, Ben Laden and many other radical Islamists really believe that they should revert the course of history in Spain, in the east and center of Europe and everywhere. This is not a hypothetical position. They also are looking very close to the immigration through the north of Africa as a part of their reconquest plan.

-So the idea of restoring the caliphate is a part of their working plan.

-They are very serious about this, because for them the caliphate is an order which comes directly from Mohammed. In their vision of the world there is no diference between the political and religious life. Everything is the same. The caliphate includes both the political and religious legitimation which emanates from the prophet.

By the way, the Spanish wounded tourist in Yemen’s attack, has died this last night. She had been declared as “brain dead” some days ago and the doctors have openly spoken against her being transferred to Spain as her wounds were so grave. With Mar√≠a Asunci√≥n Vitorica’s death, the total toll of Spanish dead in Yemen is eight.

 Police has detained today in Barcelona three Moroccans, two of them this morning and the third in the afternoon, with alledged links with Al-Qaeda in the Maghreb.

The first detained were 23-year-old Mohamed Laksir and 27-year-old Moulay Lahoucine Miftah Idrissi. The two are accused of an alledged crime of belonging to illicit association to prepare and commit terrorist attacks. The two belonged to a cell which made the job of recruiting, proselitising and taught the radical teachings of Islam.

The objective was to travel to the training camps of the African region of Sahel.

The investigations were began in Dec. 2005, after the dismantlement of a terrorist structure which had roots in Spain with a close relationship with Salafist groups.

In fact, Moulay Lahoucine Miftah Idrissi is the brother of Mohamed el Idrissi, one of the last Islamists accused by Judge Garzón two weeks ago. Mohammed was impeached, but not accused because of an alledged relationship with March 11th bombings, because, according to the investigation, El Idrissi carried a mobile phone to the families of one of the terrorists who fleed, Mohammed Afalah, to let him speak before dying in Iraq.

According to Spanish leftist newspaper El Periodico de Catalu√Īa, AlQaeda is recruiting lots of youths in Catalonia:

A person in charge of the Brigade of Information of the National Body of Police (CNP) -the speaker in question is Rodrigo Gavil√°n- talked about “a constant dripping” of resident Muslim volunteers in Spain who give themselves to yihad international. “Yearly, the number of Spanish mujahidines oscillates between the 30 and 40 people who disappear in radical surroundings or who are detected in Iraq or in route towards countries with terrorist campings“, affirmed.

The person in charge of a foreign secret service alerted that “Catalonia is the place of origin of many of them, due to the influence that radical salafi circles have in that region“.

The preeminence of Catalonia over other Spanish regions was specially clear, as in the last two years in Vilanova, Santa Coloma, Barcelona and Girona, three important networks of recruitment and shipment from young people to Iraq has been dismantled. After Catalonia, the other seed plots of radical islamists in Spain are mainly Madrid, Ceuta and Melilla.

[…] Two methods of recruitment of voluntary young people have been detected. First one occurs in districts with great presence of Muslim immigrants. There, individuals pertaining to radical cells approach teenagers and young people with strong problems of marginalization and uprooting.

“”Salafis” means recruiters, some come from France and of Belgium, that works of traveling form moving by all Spain“, a person in charge of counterterrorism explains. The boarding can take place during religious classes in mosques and pray rooms, although also in cafeterias and in the middle of the street.

They are summoned in floors, in the back of butchers or similar places, wherever at midnight or at daybreak those recruiters chat with them on yihad.

The other route of recruitment takes place in Internet, where young that has been radicalized by themselves visit forums, chats and radical webs and are contacted there by pick up networks that first request an economic aid to them and later offer them the possibility of going to Iraq.

[…] Once chosen, those young people are obliged to leave the studies and other occupations are offered to them. “The network offers them work in building companies owned by Moroccans“, added east police control. In those companies the indoctrination work continues. When the network considers that the young person is ready, manages its transfer to Iraq or, if she is a person specially enabled, to a field of training.

Those sources indicated that “one of the main routes by which it is sent to voluntary young people to Iraq they manage extremist cells Pakistanis that operate in Ceuta and Melilla“.

[…] Those transfers are financed thanks to the traffic of hashish coming from Morocco and to the obtained drug trafficking money with enterprise activities like the computer science construction, services and the forging of clothes and clocks.

The recruiters are salafist who have come from France or Belgium.

For example in 2005 one of the accused of March 11th bombings flee to Iraq using this method.

But there is more:

As the recruited ones in Spain lack military formation, knowledge of explosives or urban guerrilla, mainly “are sent for kamikaze actions“, or “are instructed” in military actions. “the danger, as both sources from the National Police and of the Civil Guard have pointed out – is that, once formed as terrorist in those fields or trained in combat in Iraq, the recruit is sent back to Europe to stay latent until the order arrives to them to activate“.

But the Catalan Interior Conseiller, Joan Saura (Socialist), known for having said that he is for the legalization of all the drugs, denies that Al Qaeda is operating so importantly in Catalonia. More here:

I do not know of any Jihadist focus in Catalonia“. But he added that “the fight against Islamist terrorism is the most important concern in the Western world, and also here, and more since Al-Qaeda menaced Al-Andalus.

I hope he is not considering Catalonia outside of the Western world…

And of course, I hope that the fight against Islamism is not a concern but a priority.

Also we have to remember that back in 2003, 16 Islamists were detained accused of plotting to commit terrorist attacks with explosive and chemical devices. Place where they were staying? Catalonia. When Aznar announced it, leftist groups in the parliament mocked him, because the Islamists have washing powder branded “Dixan”. The terrorist commando was then, named Dixan. On 2007, 5 of them had been condemned to 13 years in prison each. The substances that they had, though they weren’t enough to make explosives, could be used to build explosive devices, combined with the right electronic devices, devices which they had. They weren¬īt condemned by possesing explosives but by only belonging to terrorist network and forging documents.

Meanwhile, the Prosecutor’s office confesses that the Islamist terrorism is the first concern with more than 56 detained Islamists [alleged ] in 2007.

Update: Catalan newspaper LA Vanguardia reports that while the lider of CiU (Catalan moderate nationalists) has blamed the Government of the Generalitat for this rise in the Catalan jihadis, the CiU’s candidate to Major of Barcelona has stated that he does not consider Islamism a priority and that the city’s major problems come from common delinquents. “ I am dedicating myself to Barcelona, not to problems of the rest of Spain“.

From LD:

The Association of relatives of imprisoned and disappeared Saharaui people alerts the International Community of the wave of repression against Saharaui students by the Moroccan authorities in the Universities of Agadir, Marrakech, Casablanca and Rabat. The Polisario points out that we are in front of facts that had no precedent in the past because before the violations of Human Rights were only against the Occupied Sahara (Western Sahara). Among the 30 Saharaui students gravely beaten, the most hardly beaten has been Saltana Khana, 20-years-old (photo, right), who lost an eye after she was beaten by the Moroccan police.
She was just a peaceful demonstrator at the Marrakech University. She was beaten by a police with a stick in the eye. With blood all over her face, she lost conscience and in the floor she was again menaced with death by some other police members. But instead of carrying her to the hospital, she was detained and carried to a police station, her sister has said.

She will be imprisoned again“, Brahim Gali, the representant of Polisario in Spain has said. “This is only a consequence of the anger Moroccan officials have, after the right to determination has been recognised even by UN, without excluding independence“, he added.

No Spanish official has condemned these agressions, but Zapatero has said in the past that Morocco “was heading to democracy”. There has been another expulsion of PSOE campaign acts because of supporting Sahara: a young man shouted his support and was expelled from the building.

Several weeks ago I was writing about the Al-Qaeda new franchise in North Africa -in that case about the consequences for Spain-. And we had had the horrible proof these last days.



Moroccan police kills a terrorist and another one suicides himself in a persecution. After that, a female suicide terrorist has exploded the charge that she had tied to her body. Two policeman and a boy had been hurt in the explosion, according to police sources.



According to CNN:

Three suspected members of a terrorist group blew up themselves, and police shot a fourth after a chase in Casablanca’s al Fida neighborhood, security services said, according to Morocco’s state-run news agency, Maghreb Arabe Presse.

As police closed in on the suspects, one of them threatened police officers with a sword, pushing the officers to open fire, eventually killing him, said Casablanca governor Mokhtar Bekkali Kassimi.

The others blew themselves up — one apparently by accident during the escape, another while breaking through a police checkpoint, and the last, as police were pursuing him early Tuesday in al Fida, Kassimi said. The checkpoint explosion killed a policeman and wounded another, the governor added.

Security services had tracked the suspects thanks to an ongoing investigation stemming from the March 11 suicide bombing at an Internet cafe in the Sidi Moumen neighborhood, Kassimi said. (Watch how terrorism is on the rise in northern Africa Video)

In that incident, the shop owner had noticed two people logging on to a Web site that advocated terrorism, and they were “behaving in a violent manner,” MAP reported. When the shop owner threatened to call police, one of the suspects blew himself up. The other escaped, the agency said.

More than 30 suspects have been arrested so far, among them the man who escaped the bombed Internet cafe on March 11, MAP reported. All have appeared before a magistrate on terrorism-related charges.

Remember the explosion in a cyber caf√© when its owner forbid two people to read Islamist websites. The Counter-terrorism blog underlines that “the most credible explanation for what happened last night -for the day of those explosions, not the last ones- is that the two terrorists wanted to consult Internet to receive their orders for an attack against another target.



The Moroccan Security forces are in red alert after the suicide terrorist attacks.





And then they want to go nuclear. And Socialist Candidate to the Canary Islands’ Autonomous Government has asked for respect for this measure, because “that is a part of the strategic alternatives of a neighbour country that merits as respect as any other” (h/t Bonobus). Looks like they want another Iran but now just here, just around the corner…



And today nearly 25 people had been killed and more than 220 hurt in Algeria after two explosions, one aimed against the Primer Minister and another one against a police station. [Don’t worry, WaPo calls them “insurgents“].



By the way, according to Le Monde:

L’attaque de mardi attribu√©e aux islamistes intervient √† cinq mois des √©lections l√©gislatives, o√Ļ le Parti de la justice et du d√©veloppement (PJD, islamiste mod√©r√©, d√©nonc√© par les groupes djihadistes) est donn√© pour favori. Selon le r√©cit de la police marocaine, les √©v√©nements de mardi ont d√©but√© au petit matin, alors que les forces de l’ordre encerclaient une maison o√Ļ quatre hommes suspect√©s de pr√©parer de nouveaux attentats passaient la nuit, dans le quartier populaire de Hay Farah.


Translation: The attack on Tuesday blamed on Islamists, happened 5 months before the legislative elections, when the Justice and Development Party (PJD, “moderate” Islamist, denounced by the Jihadist groups) is the favourite. According the Moroccan Police, what happened on Tuesday, happened in the morning, as the police surrounded the home where the 4 suspects were to prepare new attacks, in the popular district of Hay Farah.





The attacks were a devastating setback for the North African nation’s efforts to close the chapter on its Islamic insurgency that has killed 200,000 people. After years of relative calm, the al-Qaida affiliate recently has recently waged several smaller attacks in the oil- and gas-rich nation.



According to Arab broadcaster Al-Jazeera, a spokesman for al-Qaida in Islamic North Africa claimed responsibility for the attacks, saying they were carried out by three suicide bombers in trucks packed with explosives. The spokesman said the bombers targeted three sites: the government headquarters in Algiers and the Interpol offices and a special police forces building in the suburb of Bab Ezzouar.

The Al Qaeda Organisation in the Islamic Maghreb claimed responsibility for the bombings in an Internet statement, which also included a claim of responsibility for attacks in neighboring Morocco and pictures of three “martyrs”.

Of course, Spain is also worried about possible attacks (Counterterrorism Blog):

The Spanish ministry of Foreign Affairs recently sent a note to its embassies in the Maghreb inviting them to:

Take ‚Äúall necessary precautions‚ÄĚ

To raise the level of alert in the consulates, and companies w/ Spanish stakes.

Why these measures???

A relatively new terrorist structure, named the ‚ÄúOrganization for Liberation of Andalusia‚ÄĚ (OLA) is said to be ready to strike against Spanish interests in the Maghreb.

About OLA:

1 year ago, the OLA issued a statement on the web in Algeria, inviting Al Qaeda elements:

To go to Iraq

To carry out the ‚Äújihad‚ÄĚ in Andalusia against the ‚Äúapostate State‚ÄĚ ‚Äúto liberate Sebta and Melilla‚ÄĚ [two Spanish enclaves near Morocco]

This call is intended ‚Äúto declare a long war with Spain by creating a powerful front‚ÄĚ and not ‚Äúto carry out a few operations‚ÄĚ

Not very amazing, but has anyone heard about this??? Has La Primera mentioned this??



Spanish State Secretary for Security, Mr. Camacho, has stated that “we should pay attention to the suicide attacks in Casablanca“, but has denied that the Government had activated any special measures.



Algerian writer Mohammed Sifaoui, author of “Combatting the Islamist terrorism“, considers that Al-Qaeda wants to unite [federate] some violent salafist movements in North Africa, as a way to strike both there and in Europe.



But this is the very best of all:

Alors que les autorit√©s ont pr√©sent√© l’attentat de mars comme un “produit purement marocain”, le politologue marocain Mohammed Darif qualifie les kamikazes de “salafistes djihadistes” endoctrin√©s pour servir de martyrs. “Je ne dis pas qu’ils sont membres d’Al-Qaida, mais tout tend √† montrer que nous sommes face √† un r√©seau organis√© qui vise le Maroc et dont les t√™tes pensantes ont des liens avec l’√©tranger”, analyse-t-il. A ses yeux, la mont√©e dans l’opinion du PJD r√©pond √† la strat√©gie de la monarchie marocaine visant √† int√©grer ces islamistes mod√©r√©s pour contrer les djihadistes.

When all the Moroccan authorities have rushed to present the attack last Tuesday as “Purely Moroccan product“, the Moroccan politologue Mohammed Darif considers that the kamikazes are “jihadist salafists“, indoctrinated to serve as martyrs. “I am not saying they are from Al-Qaeda, but everything has shown us that there is an organised base in Morocco but whose thinking brains have foreign links“, he analyses. In his eyes, this is a move from the Moroccan Monarchy who seeks to integres the moderate Islamists to win over the Jihadists.

Extreme Centre.org cites Walid Phares: “This is an additional evidence that the War on Terror is global and not linked directly and exclusively to U.S. Foreign Policy. The Jihadists in Algeria are targeting Algerians from all backgrounds while there are no US troops in that country. It is a struggle that began before 9/11 and is resuming today“. He also says “In the current debate on the War on Terror, and while voices in the US Congress -as well as in the European Parliament- have called for banning the term ‚ÄúGlobal War on Terror,‚ÄĚ the attacks in Algeria today demonstrate (with blood and statements) that many in the West haven‚Äôt yet understood the Global aim of the Jihadists. In my book, I argue that the War of Ideas has to be won at home first, so that the Global Conflict with the Jihadist can be won as well“.



Sarkozy: “The main terrorist menace to France comes from Algeria“. [link in Spanish]



Christian Science Monitor:

Political parties based on religion are banned in Morocco, but parties with “an Islamic reference” are permitted to run in elections as long as they follow the monarchy’s rules. That means acknowledging the authority of the king and submitting to election laws that make it impossible for any one group to dominate the parliament. Some groups are participating in elections and gaining limited political power, while others reject the system entirely but maintain grass-roots support.

“In the Islamic world, the Islamist movements are close to the people because the governments aren’t there. The people go with the Islamists. In every small place, every alley, there is [The] Justice and Charity Organization,” in Morocco, which rejects political participation, says Mohammed Darif, a political science professor at the Hassan II University in Mohammedia, Morocco. “Any Islamist group that supports the government will lose their popular support.”

Another group, The Justice and Development Party, is taking a different route. It is the third-largest political party in the Moroccan parliament and the leading group with an “Islamic reference.” It is expected to garner even more seats in parliamentary elections planned for September.

More on Counterterrorism Blog:

We bring good news to the larger Islamic nation and, in particular,

to our mujahideen brothers concerning the execution of special type of an operation for the very first time… We say to the apostates and their lords among the crusaders: behold the young Muslim men who are coming to you, behold those who cherish death more than life itself, and cherish martyrdom the same way that you cherish your corrupt lifestyle. We shall not put away our swords and we shall never live in peace until every last Muslim land is set free from the crusaders, the apostates, and the collaborators… O‚Äô Allah, attack the Jews and Christians and their apostate collaborators and bring victory to the mujahideen everywhere
.”

Increasing evidence gathered by Western intelligence agencies seems to also suggest that Al-Qaida’s forces in Algeria are playing in role in fomenting Islamist violence in neighboring Morocco. If accurate, this would be the first official indication that the GSPC is actively seeking targets outside the borders of Algeria.


More on Michelle Malkin. She links to the Times:

The scenes in Algiers were grimly reminiscent of the terrorist war that

cost up to 200,000 lives between 1992 and 1998. That came after the

first multiparty elections since the country gained independence from

France in 1962. The army moved in to halt the poll when it became clear

that an Islamic party was on the way to victory and the military

quelled terrorist activity ruthlessly.

More about Morocco: The Daily Standard (h/t Barcepundit):

In their new book “Quand le Maroc sera islamiste” (When Morocco
will be Islamist), journalists Nicolas Beau and Catherine Graciet paint
a very bleak albeit realistic picture of the Kingdom. Indeed, one of
the top French anti-terrorism officials, cited by Beau and Graciet,
recently stated that Morocco is by far the most worrying country in
North Africa. The official’s comparison: “today, Morocco is 1916
Russia.” Also, according to Spanish anti-terror judge Baltazar Garzon:
“Morocco is the worst terrorist threat for Europe.” He estimated that
the al Qaeda-linked cells number more than 100 and that at least 1,000
terrorists are now being actively sought by Moroccan authorities.

In fact, Western intelligence agencies fear specific attacks on Western
interests in the country. Some are even warning of a “terrorist
tsunami.”


According to an article in the Algerian daily L’Expression, partially translated by The Croissant,
the CIA recently beefed up its presence in Morocco and Algeria. Also,
right before this latest incident, Moroccan authorities had closed in
on an armed group that was preparing its own attack. The group was
composed of 21 Algerians, eight of whom were subsequently arrested–the
others are still on the run.

La prueba de que Al-Qaeda ha comenzado a operar a trav√©s de su franquicia del Norte de √Āfrica la hemos tenido estos √ļltimos d√≠as en Marruecos y en Argelia.

En Marruecos, la polic√≠a ha abortado un atentado suicida en el que han participado 4 terroristas (1 muerto por la polic√≠a y otros, una mujer y un hombre, se han suicidado, el 4¬ļ est√° huido). Pero lo interesante es que se produce a 5 meses de las “elecciones” en las que parte como favorito el Partido de la Justicia y del Desarrollo, “islamista moderado“, con los que quiere pactar el rey Mohamed VI para frenar a los islamistas. Las autoridades marroqu√≠es niegan que sea islamista este atentado y dice que “es un producto marroqu√≠“.

En  Argelia, 30 personas han sido ASESINADAS y m√°s de 150 (dec√≠an antes que 220) han sido gravemente heridas, por la rama de Al-Qaeda en el Norte de √Āfrica.

Pero si lo anterior es un horror, Espa√Īa est√° amenazada por un nuevo grupo terrorista isl√°mico, seg√ļn The Counterterrorism Blog:

Una relativamente nueva estructura llamada la ‚ÄúOrganizaci√≥n para la Liberaci√≥n de Andaluc√≠a‚ÄĚ (OLA) que ha dicho estar preparada para atacar los intereses espa√Īoles en el Magreb.

Sobre el OLA:

Hace un a√Īo, el OLA hizo un comunicado en la web, invitando a los elementos de Al Qaeda:

Para ir a Irak

Para llevar a cabo la “jihad” en Andaluc√≠a contra el “Estado ap√≥stata” “para liberar Ceuta y Melilla“.

Esta llamada tiene por objeto “para declarar una guerra larga contra Espa√Īa creando un frente poderoso‚ÄĚ y no “s√≥lo algunas pocas operaciones”.

Moratinos ya ha advertido a las embajadas y/o consulados que tomen las medidas oportunas.



Los del No a la Guerra, ¬Ņa qu√© est√°n esperando para ir en contra de la guerra de Afganist√°n? Ah que no, que ellos siguen con Iraq y el PP tiene la culpa…

From Le Figaro.fr:

Une d√©l√©gation du groupe public russe Atomstroyexport √©tait √† Rabat cette semaine. Elle y aurait fait avancer sa candidature dans le projet de construction d’une centrale √† l’ouest du pays, √† Sidi Boulbra, entre Safi et Essaouira. Atom¬≠stroyexport est le bras arm√© du Kremlin pour mettre en musique les accords politiques de coop√©ration nucl√©aire. Le groupe russe construit des centrales en Chine, en Inde, en Iran et en Bulgarie, √† un co√Ľt tr√®s comp√©titif par rapport √† ses concurrents occidentaux.

Plusieurs dirigeants d’Atom¬≠stroyexport avaient d’ailleurs d√©j√† accompagn√© Vladimir Poutine lors de sa visite de septembre dernier au Maroc. Pour l’heure, aucun appel d’offres n’a √©t√© lanc√© par le gouvernement. ¬ę Les groupes fran√ßais et am√©ricains tels que Areva et General Electric ne sont pas dispos√©s √† laisser les Russes leur souffler un joli contrat et les gouvernements de ces pays ne voudront pas laisser le Maroc entrer dans la zone d’influence du nucl√©aire civil ¬≠russe ¬Ľ, fait valoir un observateur marocain.

La presse espagnole s’est √©mue ces derniers jours de l’√©ventualit√© d’avoir une centrale nucl√©aire √† quelques encablures des √ģles Canaries. Les commentateurs y doutent de la capacit√© du pays √† assurer le niveau de s√©curit√© n√©cessaire √† de telles installations et rappellent que la menace terroriste est bien r√©elle dans le pays.

Autre inqui√©tude, entendue il y a dix jours √† Rabat : les partis islamistes, dont le PJD (Parti de la justice et du d√©veloppement), pourraient fort bien remporter les √©lections l√©gislatives de septembre. ¬ę Si les barbus ont le pouvoir, le nucl√©aire sera un sujet central, voire une priorit√© ¬Ľ, affirme un chef d’entreprise.

Mais, pour l’heure, la situation est plus simple. Le Maroc a un besoin urgent de r√©pondre √† la demande croissante d’√©nergie de sa population et de ses entreprises (+ 8 √† 10 % par an). Le pays d√©pend √† 97 % de fioul, de gaz et de charbon venant de l’√©tranger et ne dispose pas dans son sous-sol de r√©serves naturelles. Il ne veut pas non plus se mettre sous la d√©pendance du voisin alg√©rien.

So, a Russian firm is possibly going to build a nuclear reactor for Morocco, just at the same time when Zapatero’s Government has announced that Spanish nuclear energy production will be ended in 30 years’ time and when the position of the Government about the rightly independence of ex-Spanish Sahara has changed, as FM Moratinos has already recognised (also here; both links in Spanish), as it was very clear since they first recognised that Western Sahara could belong to Morocco with an “autonomy statute”, which had been rejected even by UN.

As ever, UN has now changed its own views: Ban Ki Moon considers “flexible” the proposal made by the Moroccan king. I was -an still am- a fierceful critic of this man, forged in the appeasement towards North Korea. Of course, now he is more interested in satisfying France -a very good ally of Morocco- than justice. But well, that is normal in Un, isn’t it?

The reasons that Morocco is basing the building of this nuclear facility are basicly, that Morocco does not have enough resources and that they do not want to be dependent from Algerian neighbours.

Of course, Le Figaro is not worried about the reactor security nor abour Islamists. It just says, “nowadays the situation is much more simple”.

Other things to read: “Rodr√≠guez Zapatero: another treason to Saharaui people“.

___________________________

Al parecer una empresa rusa va a construir una central nuclear en Marruecos, cerca de las Islas Canarias. Marruecos basa su intenci√≥n en que no tiene suficientes recursos energ√©ticos y no quiere depender de Argelia, con la que ya se lleva mal como consecuencia -entre otras razones- del contencioso sobre el S√°hara espa√Īol. La empresa es la misma que est√° construyendo centrales nucleares, entre otros pa√≠ses, en Ir√°n y que se considera el “brazo armado del Kremlin” en cuestiones nucleares.

Ban Ki-Moon, el nuevo Secretario General de la ONU, del que nunca he sido una admiradora, ha dicho, despu√©s de recibir a una delegaci√≥n marroqu√≠, que el plan del rey de Marruecos sobre el antiguo S√°hara espa√Īol, es “flexible“, contradiciendo otra vez la justicia y no haciendo caso de sus propias resoluciones…

Es curioso que Le Figaro, despu√©s de enumerar las causas por las que es peligroso que Marruecos tenga una central nuclear (b√°sicamente, el peligro islamista y la falta de seguridad), dice “pero por ahora, la situaci√≥n es mucho m√°s simple”. ¬ŅA que no se nota cu√°l es la relaci√≥n entre Francia y Marruecos?

Por cierto, que esta revelaci√≥n se hace cuando Zapatero acaba de anunciar que tiene un plan para suprimir la energ√≠a nuclear en 30 a√Īos y cuando Moratinos ha reconocido lo evidente: el cambio de pol√≠tica respecto de Marruecos.

And we go on with the pacifist hypocrites (I am going to add a label for hypocrites):

According to the President of the State Cooperation of the Associations of Solidarity with Sahara (CEAS-SAHARA), Jos√© Taboada, the Spanish Government, with its “infamous” support of the Moroccan Autonomy plan, “far from finding a just, pacific and enduring peace, is contributing to the return of war, completely justified”. On the contrary, he asks in an interview, “What is the real cause of selling to the Moroccan kingdom more than 1.200 tanks, and other war weapons, worthy of 200 millions ‚ā¨?. Is giving weapons to a regime which has an open war with the illegal occupied lands, even if there is a truce, and which uses its tanks to break on the minority for, at least, not let them speak, as the Zapatero’s Government wants to achieve peace?“.

Peace, how many crimes are comitted in thy name!!! This is the Government of the absurd “peace processes”.

“So, as the Saharauis of the occupied lands resist to the Moroccan pressure”, says Taboada, ” those who are in exile are facing the desert hostitlity, where at least there lives are not at risk”. There are two Saharas, one occupied and another one, which is free, and now Spain is capitulating to Moroccan blackmail, he laments. This position of the Spanish Government, he continues, “is not ethic, it’s not clever. It’s dangerous as it maintains an status quo that makes the poverty grow when it could just use it’s power to push Sahara into economic development”. So many years of suffering, he goes on, to blush with the Spanish support ti a plan which does not even consider independence, conditio sine qua non for the conflict’s solution, that was considered by James Baker plan, which was accepted in the beginning by all the sides.

But Taboada goes on asking himself: “Why Saharauis cannot have,as any citizen, of the minute of freedom that gives you the election? Does Spain has a debt so important with Morocco?”. According to the coordinator, the answer is yes, and “the price is going to be paid by the saharauis, a change coin, with which Spain is protecting the agreements with Morocco regarding the fish market, the immigration and terrorism, or to prevent any question about Ceuta and Melilla”.

He adds that the Kingdom of Mohammed VIth is also menacing other countries of UE and USA.

He considers the “possibility of Morocco being converted into a Republic under Islamic rule if the Western Sahara is lost“. He denounces, in view of this dangerous considerations, that the Socialist Government prefers to “ally itself with the plans of the Moroccan Kingdom, that are no others than legitimate before the UN its illegal occupation“.

So, let me sum up the facts. Morocco invades ILLEGALLY Spanish Sahara, in the precise moment in which Franco is dying and Spain is not worried but by its own existence.

Since then, Socialists and Communists have been supporting Saharauis. And pointing the blame on center-right people as the ones who “abandoned the Saharauis“, and asking for “freedom for saharauis“.

Aznar wins the elections and, not liking very much the Moroccan King, fights in the UN to maintain the Baker plan which recognises the right of the Saharauis to have a referendum to decide about their future and near the end of his 2nd term, makes a preference agreement with Algeria to import natural gas from there.

In a private conversation, Piqu√©, then Spanish FM, is menaced by the Moroccan King, telling him that “though Spain has not been the target of Islamist attacks, that does not mean that an Islamist attack couldn’t take place in Spanish soil“. Moratinos, later as FM, says, speaking about that menace, that “we have to maintain good relations with Morocco“. (¬°!)

Zapatero goes to Morocco where he is photographed with a map in which Ceuta, Melilla and the Canary Islands are depicted as a part of the Moroccan kingdom.

Zapatero wins the election after the street, MSM and citizen pressure regarding the Iraqi war. And of course, after March 11th bombings, which causes I do not know, but of the people detained -I am not particularly inclined to any supposition: I think all of them are wrong and right. I do not think truth will be ever known …- most of them are Moroccans, who cannot pass as very Jihadi types. Zapatero says, in relation with the Spanish foreign policy, that “he wants to go back to the heart of Europe“.

Zapatero goes in his first trip to Morocco (which as you know is NOT Europe).

Three years later, after having a lot of crisis with Moroccan kingdom [Immigrants, the case of the oranges that some of the Moroccan producers say were invented by them and asked for a compensation -Lo le√≠ en El Mundo, peri√≥dico de papel, si alguien tiene un link, me lo deja en comentarios-, the drug dealing…], he recognises the Moroccan autonomy plan, sells tanks and other weapons to Morocco for a total valor of 200 millions of ‚ā¨ and agrees to build a train with Morocco under the sea.

Algeria raises the gas prices 20% as a result.

I keep on asking the same question: what has seen our president in this man?

Other related news:

Aznar reveals that Chirac told him to give Ceuta, Melilla and the Canary Islands to Morocco. Chirac denies it (of course, the contrary is a little bit shameful: pressing on the President of an INDEPENDENT State to modify his territory).

So the question is: is Morocco related to the March 11th bombings or they are just playing the card of the Islamoterrorists knowing that so pacifist a Government, the same one who proposed the Civilizations’ Alliance relies precisely in being the opposite to Aznar’s Government? Could Moroccan King ally himself with the Islamists not to leave power, if the moment comes?

[NOTE: the related facts are only that: FACTS. Each one can interpret them as is able or wants to].
