* A recurring pattern: google ‘Spain arrests Islamic ….’ and you get page after page of the same. When will authorities in Al Andaluz grow some cojones and call for the immediate internment and deportation of these jihad apes?
* Members of the Spanish national police carried boxes of documents from a Muslim society they raided in the city of Badalona.
* What’s wrong with this picture? Why does Spanish law enforcement have to cover up like Islamo-fascist thugs in Gaza?
MADRID (Thomson Financial) – Six people suspected of recruiting Islamic militants to send to Iraq have been arrested by Spanish police, the interior ministry said.
Paramilitary police were searching the homes of the suspects in the northern Burgos region, it said.
The cell is alleged to have operated through internet chat rooms and discussion groups.
‘The dismantled group was organising clandestine meetings, was gathering funds for imprisoned terrorists (and) was justifying terrorism,’ the ministry said.
Police seize ‘world jihad’ teamÂ
MADRID, Spain (CNN) — Six suspected Islamic militants were Wednesday arrested in northern Spain on suspicion of using the Internet to recruit for and plot a ‘world jihad,’ a Ministry of Interior statement said.
The arrests came in Burgos province, a few hours’ drive north of Madrid.
The six, allegedly linked to international Islamic terrorist activity, were seized in an operation involving U.S., Danish and Swedish intelligence agencies, the statement said.
“A large part of the activity was carried out on restricted Internet ‘chats’ and forums, which shows that the cell arrested was the first one detected and dismantled in Spain that promoted ‘world jihad’ through the Internet,” the statement said.
Police were searching the homes of the six suspects and also a butcher shop run by one of them. Documents and computers were seized, the statement said.
Some of the money raised by the group allegedly was sent to Islamic terrorist convicts or suspects in prison, it said.
The alleged ringleader is Abdelkader Ayachine, an Algerian, and his top aide, Wissan Lotfi, a Moroccan. They were allegedly preaching violent jihadi ideology to promote an international “holy war,” especially in Iraq, the statement said.
