en idea segunda

Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to show you could be intimidated by bombings:

MADRID - Islamist terrorist attacks in North Africa have revived concerns in Spain about threats made by Al Qaeda to recover what Arabs know as "Al Andalus".

National Court Judge Baltasar Garzon warned in an interview published on Thursday by the daily La Vanguardia that there exists a "high risk" Europe will suffer a new attack by fundamentalist Muslim terrorists.

....Spanish defense minister Jose Antonio Alonso emphasized the need to be "very attentive and prepared" and not to downplay "any threat" after terrorist attacks in Algiers and Casablanca.

....The Algiers attacks were claimed by the Al Qaeda Organization in the Countries of the Islamic Maghreb, which - in a statement released on the Internet - swore not to rest until it had liberated "the land of Islam from Jerusalem to Al Andalus".

....Referring to the Al Qaeda message about the Algiers attacks, Garzon said it "can and must be considered the relaunching of its terrorist campaigns".
