Spain

Madrid looks back one year ago and remembers the victims of the bombings in Madrid. More here, including a report that Muslim clerics have issued a fatwa against Osama bin Laden:

Asked if the edict meant Muslims had to help police try to arrest the world's most wanted man -- who is believed to be hiding along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan -- [Mansur] Escudero said: "We don't get involved in police affairs but we do feel that all Muslims are obliged to ... keep anyone from doing unjustified damage to other people."

I hope those who crow about how "The United States hasn't been attacked" since 9/11 remember that that doesn't mean there haven't BEEN attacks. Like it or not, Spain, France, Germany, etc., i.e., countries the war crowd barks and brays about, are STILL our allies--allies which we need and could learn from.

¡Recuerde Madrid!
