GN Online: Youssef M. Ibrahim: Spaniards send US a message by voting out Aznar’s party: “Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaida, most experts agree, has now morphed from a Muslim extremist organisation to a sort of a club for anyone who hates America. Terrorists who are not necessarily Muslim extremists are joining the fight against the Americans in Iraq, and now in Europe against governments that supported the US.
It is entirely possible, as Spanish investigators are suggesting, that the Basque terrorists of ETA joined hands with Al Qaida to mount the bloody attack on innocent civilians in Madrid. If not so, this is probably the work of Al Qaida, as ETA has no record of such horrific terror. Either ways, it is a criminal act clearly motivated by a desire to attack America and its friends. “
