Comments on: Alleged Terrorist Recruiters Arrested in Spain http://poliblogger.com/?p=12004 A rough draft of my thoughts...

My point was that one of the main reasons is easier to radicalize Muslims in Spain is because of the whole Andalusia business. There has been a great deal of activity and arrests in Spain--moreso than say, France, or other states in the region that also receive a great number of muslim immigrants. I think that the whole reclaiming of the Caliphate issue is a propaganda aid to al Qaeda types. I don't see why that would be a stretch. Granted.

The article is about recruiting people to fight in third countries, not in Spain. How on earth would recruiting people to fight in Iraq restore Andalusia to Muslim rule? It wouldn't. What we have here is Muslim recruiters targeting Muslim immigrants because they're the natural recruiting pool. It could and does happen anywhere there's a Muslim community. Man what? “al-Andalus?”
