Next Up, Spain?

The recent terrorist bombing in Algeria has stirred mounting concern in Spain, as the organization that carried it off says that its ultimate objective is the Muslim reconquest of Iberia:

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.
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.

Spain’s socialist government may have no choice but to confront the threat of Islamic terrorism, whether it wants to or not.
