That other 11th

11 MAR is to many Spanish their 11 SEP. Though not on the scale of the attacks on the American East Coast in 2001, the Madrid bombings do serve as an interesting template on the differences in our countries. As is our nature, when we were attacked, American turned into the fury and marched forward to bring some Old Testament Justice on our attackers. Jules paraphrased the 23rd Psalms and Ezekiel 25:17 for us quite well.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides with the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon those with great vengeance and with furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know that my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee
The Spanish response, Ferdinand and Isabella must be rolling in their grave, was "We quit. Please don't interfere with our summer holidays. We'll do anything if you just let us wallow in our self-hate." Very nice Dhimmi, very nice.

OK, that may be too much, but that is how it translates towards the Islamofascists. Too bad the weight of the Spanish Dhimmi outweigh the
solid Spaniards that stood with Anzar and the forces of the West.

So, what has supine Spain bought from its Muslim

'We are going to issue a fatwa (religious decree) against Bin Laden this afternoon,' Mansour Escudero, who leads the Federation of Islamic religious entities (Feeri) and co-secretary general of the Spanish government-created Commission told AFP.
Isn't that sweet? And timely too. And so quick!!!

The Commission has also drawn up a document designed to 'thank the Spanish people and the government for their attitude towards Muslims' since last March 11, in particular for not taking 'disproportionate' measures similar to those which the Sept 11 attacks sparked in the US.
Of course not. We don't want Spain to properly defend itself. We want Spain to retreat, surrender, and act like nice little Dhimmi. Set a good example for your dying European neighbors in "Dar el Harb."

This does nothing to honor the dead. Only the murdering Islamofascists.

On an unrelated issue (not really), yesterday was
another lesson in the American way of war. Not pretty, but it is our way of war. You attack us, we will respond in an order of magnitude. Tokyo 9-10 MAR 1945.
In a single night, 334 B-29 "Superfortress" bombers carpeted Tokyo with a half-million incendiary cylinders, sparking fires that spread with deadly speed through the cramped wooden homes and buildings of densely populated downtown quarters.

The official death toll was 83,000, but historians, considering the destruction of records and the chaos following the attack -- generally agree that about 100,000 people died in that one night of fire.
Update: Rusty as usual hits the right tone. If you are more of a visual person, and if you need a reminder, here is the video from LGF. Watch. Remember. Learn. Act.
