This is all you need to know about Al Qaeda and terrorists summed up:(emphases mine)"The war with Israel does not depend on cease-fires ... . It is a Jihad for the sake of (Allah) and will last until (our) religion prevails ... from Spain to Iraq," al-Zawahiri said. "We will attack everywhere." Spain was controlled by Arab Muslims until they were driven from the country at the turn of the 16th century.From this one paragraph you can conclude:
1) The terrorists have stated very clearly that a cease fire will not work.
2) The terrorists will continue their terror campaign until one objective is achieved: Islam is installed as the one and only religion and all other religions are completely destroyed.
3) There is no negotiation possible. The only point for them is one world religion - Islam. How can that be negotiated? Anything short of complete and total Islamic domination means the terrorists will continue to attack.
4) Appeasement does not work. If memory serves, Spain was told to get troops out of Iraq or they would be a target. If they withdrew, they would no longer be a target. The Madrid train bombings happened and the Spanish people voted in a government sworn to appease the terrorists. Spain did withdraw from Iraq yet they are still being identified as a target in that paragraph. Why? Simple, the promise not to target Spain was a ruse to stop the Spainish army (and other world armies) from killing the terrorists in Iraq and the real objective of Islamic domination has not been achieved. Thus Spain remains a target.
5) The terrorists use the oppression of the Arabs by Israel and 'evil' US foreign policy as an excuse; their objective is not to change Israel or US foreign policy, but to make Islam the only religion. All these excuses and supposed causes serve to win popular Arab and Muslim support, so the terrorists can operate with impunity within those areas and countries. If Arabs and Muslims can look the other way, the terrorists can operate freely while they train, scheme and attack. The terrorists latch to Arab causes, so their Arab neighbours will passively or actively support and harbour them. Don't be fooled! The terrorists' true and only objective is for an exclusive worldwide Muslim religion.
6) Yes, Muslims had conquered in Spain and they were driven out. Be thankful or history today would be quite different.
