The Gift of Appeasement

Appeasement. Europe specializes in it. America has totally rejected the idea, that is sane Americans. Not convinced that appeasement is a bad idea? Do you still think that if the big, bad Americans would just leave those poor, defenseless Islamic fanatics alone, then peace would abound again all over the world? WAKE UP!! If you still believe in that premise, then logic would say that Spain should be sitting pretty with the terrorists. The Spanish people bowed down to the terrorists and dutifully submitted. If your not scared to let the facts get in the way of your logic, check this out.
A radical Muslim cell broken up by Spanish police had been plotting to bomb the National Court, a hub of Spain's investigations of Islamic terrorism, the interior minister said Tuesday. (/snip)

Seven suspects were arrested on Monday in Madrid and southern Spain, and one more Tuesday in the northern city of Pamplona. Most are Algerian, and some had contacts with militants elsewhere in Europe, the United States and Australia.

"This was an operation against radical Muslims. They were planning to commit terrorist attacks," Interior Minister Jose Antonio Alonso told reporters at Parliament.

"They were talking about attacking the National Court, a judicial body. But the police do not rule out any other kind of possibility," Alonso said, adding that no explosives were found during the arrests.

How about them apples?
