al-Qaeda to España: "Estamos los reconquistadores."

Alarm in Spain over al-Qaeda call for its 'reconquest'

Madrid - The emergence of a new al-Qaeda-linked organization in Northern Africa is alarming Spain, which is concerned about Islamists' calls for the reconquest of the country they regard as a lost part of the Muslim world.

'We will not be in peace until we set our foot again in our beloved al-Andalus,' al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said on claiming responsibility for an attack which killed at least 24 people in Algiers on Wednesday.

Al-Andalus is the Moorish name for Spain, parts of which were ruled by Muslims for about eight centuries until the last Moorish bastion, Granada, succumbed to the Christian Reconquest in 1492.

The terrorists will undoubtedly attempt to extend their offensive from Northern Africa to European soil, anti-terrorism judge Baltasar Garzon warned, cautioning that Spain was at a 'very high risk' of suffering an Islamist attack.


I guess I better hurry up and take Mrs. Whatsakyer? on that trip to España antes esos putos estallan el lugar. (Poor literal translation: "Before those bitches blow up the place").

Thank to P$ @ Clarity & Resolve for the tip.
