    Agreed on Hezbollah, but we should do the same for all murderous religious fanatics be they Hezbollah, Daesh or Army of God.

    From Elpais, one they are looking for worked at a mosque there for 2 years, not sure what role, as translated it reads as a magnet, but it appears he lead in prayers. Ok, it appears he is an imam at the mosque, up until 2 months ago. Imam translate to magnet-


    The Mossos d'Esquadra investigate the role of the Ripoll magnet, Abdelbaki Es Satty, in the preparation of the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils. The Catalan police registered the night of Friday to Saturday their house, in the street of Sant Pere de Ripoll. Officials were seeking DNA samples because they suspect that Abdelbaki Es Satty is one of two people killed in the random explosion in a house in Alcanar, Tarragona, allegedly used by terrorists to plot the bombings. Abdelbaki had practiced a magnet in Ripoll for about two years, although he had left that function about two months ago, explain the faithful of the mosque, who since then have been leading the prayer themselves. Most of the terrorists detained (four) or shot dead by the police (five) live in Ripoll, the town where Abdelbaki preached, which opens the unknown about the role they played in their radicalization. MORE INFORMATION The keys to the Barcelona and Cambrils attacks According to the Mossos, the attacks began to prepare a few months ago. The group intended to commit a major bomb attack in Barcelona. But the fortuitous explosion last Wednesday night in Alcanar, the logistics base of the cell, forced them to change plans. Investigators suspect that one of the bodies found in Alcanar's home is that of the Ripoll magnet.

    Pogo: "you sure they aren't Catalan Separatists? They look like it!"

    Call me a pessimist, but I don't think they will find the driver. The longer it takes the less the chances.

    The fleeing terrorist Younes Abouyaaqoub was pursued by a police car when he hit the poor people after he was able to escape running that strangely look as the same attack in Germany the terrorist had fled before being shot in Italy
    Berlin truck attack suspect shot dead in Italy
    So he could be anywhere in Europe !

    From Poland....what a novel idea...prevent too many Muslims from immigrating to your nation and you won't have terrorism.

    The official, a member of the ruling rightwing Law and Justice Party (PiS), said he asked his country’s security services what they were doing to prevent similar incidents and noted that Poland is safe because “we do not have Muslim communities which are enclaves, which are a natural support base for Islamic terrorists.”


    A “possibility” to prevent terrorism is closing in Europe, according to the minister. As RT reports, Blaszczak also lashed out at the refugee resettling scheme in the EU, claiming it's “encouraging millions of people to come to Europe,” and that would effectively have tragic consequences.

    Is not the blood of innocent Euros on the hands of many stupid government leaders and bureaucrats, who promote and institute open immigration of Muslims?

    Attacks in Spain: the murder of a motorist intrigues the investigators.

    [​IMG]

    Police on the scene of the attack on the Ramblas in Barcelona, 17 August 2017(AFP/Josep LAGO

    The investigators try to make the link between a motorist found larded with knives on the outskirts of Barcelona and the course of the author of the attack on La Rambla. The victim and his car could have been used by the terrorist to escape.
    Little by little, the path of the authors of the attacks of Barcelona and Cambrils became clear. In particular, the investigators had to extend their investigations to Europe, suspecting the passage of one of the key members of the terrorist cell, the imam of Ripoll, by Belgium, and after the report of one of the vehicles rented by The group in France. One of the suspects, who belongs to one of the four siblings of the cell, is still sought after. And a few shady areas persist.


    A particularly confused episode intrigues the investigators. It intervenes Thursday night, shortly after the attack on Barcelona, and could lead to an upward revision of the death toll of deceased persons. The Mossos (the Catalan police, note) confirmed Sunday that they were investigating the death of Pau Perez. This 34-year-old motorist was found larded with knives late Thursday afternoon in his car, in a parking lot of Sant Just Desvern, on the outskirts of Barcelona. The Ford Focus had earlier forced a police barrier on the Diagonal of Barcelona, one of the main arteries of the city.

    A man still on the run

    The Catalan investigators believe that the vehicle could be used by the terrorist of the Ramblas in his escape. He allegedly forced the owner to cross the dam before removing it. A thesis confirmed by a witness claiming to have seen a person leave the Focus and to leave running the parking where the body was discovered. Pau Perez could therefore be the 15th death of the attacks.

    The investigators did not confirm the identity of the author of the Barcelona attack. However, the Spanish media ensure that the police are almost certain that it is Younes Abauyaaqoub, the young man of 22 years on the run.

    Some Barcelona recent history may explain things
    Cambrian Dissenters: Barcelona - Death Is What You Get When You Invite the Grim Reaper
    Barcelona - Death Is What You Get When You Invite the Grim Reaper
    Back in February this year 160,000 Spaniards took to the streets of Barcelona, Spain, to demand the government open the doors to more refugees. It was just over two weeks ago on 4th August that a group of Spanish socialists rampaged through popular tourist resorts demanding their free spending visitors go home labelling them as the real terrorists while at the same time putting out the welcome mat for refugees. (See here)

    lol infantile rubbish. You aren't 'rational', by the way, just another fashionista spewing nonsense because you think it makes somebody believe you have some mental capacity.
