Islamic State has claimed it carried out the deadly attack in Barcelona, according to the group's Amaq news agency.

In a statement, it said: "The perpetrators of the Barcelona attack are soldiers of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls for targeting coalition states."

Just as effective as bombs and guns, sadly, when you target the unsuspecting civilian there will always be means and opportunities.

It should become policy that if someone "on the radar" commits such a crime, the government representative who had the power to preempt that individual should be held legally accountable for not doing.  Meanwhile, if they find this guy, I hope the apprehending officer has a rusty straight razor close to hand.  The perp might live forever on the Spanish dole, but he should never have the opportunity to breed again.

Too many innocent western deaths and too many muslims hating the western world and all non believers - enough!

Irrelevant of what these islamic fanatics are calling themselves now, they are all part of the same barbaric religion which does not and will never fit within the western world.

We can not keep being fooled by the "good muslim" excuse anymore, every single muslim entering the western world needs to be checked out fully, and if they can not be, then they should not be allowed to enter.

Every person who was watching them should be made accountable, but that is never going to happen. We have the security services telling us once in a while what a wonderful job they have done by preventing a terror attack, but they also are allowing muslims to walk our streets even though they know they are part of terrorist groups or associated with them. These muslims are laughing at us! 

Many a  mosque here needs to be pulled down, we are seeing more and more muslim only areas, this is not being diverse, this is not being non racist, this is not being multicultural, this is being = islam only .....jeeeze!!!! in our own bloody western world!

I heard some where that 2 houses also blew up yesterday and a few people died. Both houses had evidence of propane tanks and other items which may have been meant to go in the van.

The left leaning msn have managed to create an anti trump naravite out of this. 

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to to the right. Here I am stuck..... 

Perhaps this can be the slogan for the normal people stuck in the middle. 

Or perhaps Perl jam 1/2 full would be a more appropriate song

It was Al-Quada who bombed Madrid, frightening the Spanish government into pulling it's troops out of the Iraq operation. Al Quada left them alone after that because it's primary beef is the presence non-muslims in "muslim lands", and so from it's perspective, Spain had shown due Dhimmitude.

ISIS, on the other hand, wants all non-muslims dead or in slavery, and regards ALL lands as "muslim lands". As they said in their propaganda magazine... "Even if you pulled out of all muslim lands, we would still hate you and seek to kill you, because you are not muslim"
