Atlantis found off of Spain?

Apparently, the lost city of Atlantis has been found off the south coast of Spain. If true, this would be indeed a great discovery.

To solve the age-old mystery, the team analyzed satellite imagery of a suspected submerged city just north of Cadiz, Spain. There, buried in the vast marshlands of the Dona Ana Park, they believe that they pinpointed the ancient, multiringed dominion known as Atlantis.

Feelings of Anger and Powerless

I really understand the people of Spain and share their sentiments of anger and powerless for these coward attacks, but I would not blame the Prime Minister Aznar for them.

If he decided to join the crusade against terrorism along side with the US, it’s simply because Spain has suffered for more than 30 long years of such terrorist attacks and an end had to be set for it, whether by him or someone else.

Leave the guy alone, he did what he had to do, and I admire his decision, as a matter of fact I will vote for him again, as usual. The Popular Party has been doing an excellent job for the country, and if the people are feeling he’s guilty, they’d better rethink their position here.

This is a very serious act of terrorism. Serious enough to cause another civil revolt among the people; if this was done by ETA, they’ve shot their last bullet because nobody in Spain would be able to tolerate them anyway ever. But if this was done by someone else, then the people had better prepare to plan how they’re going to secure the entire country, going forward as this could’ve happened anywhere in the world, and this is exactly what Mr. Aznar was thinking of, so I believe he’s very capable of coming up with the answers that are needed in this case and he will not fail.

Also, Spain will see the support of not only the US, but the entire world. Spaniards must think with their heads of what’s ahead of them and the rest of us, rather than blaming any one at this point.

Justice must be done, one way or another, I agree. If these attacks were done to settle something that happened long ago about 1492, then we’re dealing with the most stupid people on earth, but then again, not only stupid but without human feelings.

I personally have nothing against Islam, but Muslims should really think of doing something to rid Islam of fundamentalists who come and ruin their whole cause for existence.

God is a loving God, who would not tolerate these actions to be done in His name. If Muslims think otherwise, then they must not be worshipping the same God.

Again, Mr. Aznar made a good decision here, and he has demonstrated that fear should not be the leading sentiment for not doing what is right.

Spain is targeted by terrorism

Demonstrators hold up their hands and call for an end to violence at a gathering in Seville.

Taunting claim of responsibility

In a five-page e-mail claim sent to Al-Quds al-Arabi, Abu Hafs al-Masri said the brigade’s “death squad” had penetrated “one of the pillars of the crusade alliance, Spain.”

This is part of settling old accounts with Spain, the crusader, and America’s ally in its war against Islam,” the claim said.

The statement taunted the prime minister, asking: “Aznar, where is America? Who will protect you, Britain, Japan, Italy and others from us?”

The message, which the newspaper faxed to The Associated Press office in Cairo, Egypt, also warned the United States that another major strike was approaching.

“We announce the good news for the Muslims in the world that the strike of the black wind of death, the expected strike against America, is now at its final stage — 90 percent ready — and it is coming soon, by God’s will,” the message said.

This apparent disconnect led some Thursday to speculate that Islamic terrorist groups might be behind the blasts, perhaps striking a blow at Spain for its decision to support the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, or angered by the fact that Spain has arrested more alleged al-Qaida operatives than any European country outside Germany and France. Certainly, viewed from the perspective of al-Qaida, a group that dwells on perceived injustices centuries past, striking at the nation that drove the Moors from Europe in 1492 would not be hard to justify.

“… we weep with the families. We stand strongly with the people of Spain. I appreciate so very much the Spanish government’s fight against terror, their resolute stand against terrorist organizations, like ETA. The United States stand with them. Today we ask God’s blessing on those who suffer in the great country of Spain.”

–U.S. President Bush
