Identical to three Iraqi Mosques bombings
The trains were 'First service' meaning they came straight out of rail service depot. This area is strictly controlled with heavy security. Al Queda or ETA could never have gained access.
Only Mossad, with it's network of sayanims, could have the accessed the depots and had the sophistication used on the bombs.
Madrid's a population of 2,881,506 in 1998. Madrid has long been the center of Spanish government and culture. As a result, it has drawn its population from all over the country. Castilian, usually referred to as Spanish, is spoken with several regional accents.
The Basques are a Christian group in the mountainous region that straddles the border between modern-day Spain and France and they want an independent state. The train bomb is way beyond anything they are capable of.
Suddenly the blame shifts from Basque to Al Queda
Al Queada suspected
Spanish officials initially blamed the Basque separatist group ETA for the stunningly well-coordinated series of 10 explosions but later shifted their focus to Al Queda.Muslims claim responsibility
The Arabic newspaper Al-Quds al-Arabi said it had received a claim of responsibility issued in the name of al-Qaida - It said the brigade's "death squad" had penetrated "one of the pillars of the crusade alliance, Spain."
Spain back the USA in their attacks on AL- Quaeda
"This is part of settling old accounts with Spain, the crusader, and America's ally in its war against Islam,"
Detonators and Koran conveniently found in nearby Van
But the discovery of seven detonators and an Arabic tape in a van parked near Madrid, plus a purported al Qaeda letter claiming responsibility...
The bombs were set off by mobile phone and contained copper detonators, which are not generally used by armed Basque separatist group ETA.
Arab bomber also spotted ---- "He wore three layers of underwear and was closely shaven, which is common for Arab suicide commandos who because of their faith usually do this before immolating themselves."
Muslims threaten " Winds of death " on entire worldStraight out of a Hollywood movie
"We have succeeded in infiltrating the heart of crusader Europe," the letter said, calling the bombings at three Madrid railway stations "Operation Death Trains."
"We bring the good news to Muslims of the world that the expected 'Winds of Black Death' strike against America is now in its final stage," it added.
U.S. intelligence agencies say Muslims will attack countries such as Spain that supported the U.S.-led war in Iraq Fears that Al-Qaeda was behind the Madrid blasts grew after a video was found Saturday in which a man speaking Arabic claimed the attacks in the name of the Islamic fundamentalist network.
Video tape found at Mosque
"We declare our responsibility for what happened in Madrid exactly 2 1/2 years after the attacks on New York and Washington. It is a response to your collaboration with the criminals Bush and his allies. "
"You love life and we love death, which gives an example of what the Prophet Muhammad said. If you don't stop your injustices, more and more blood will flow and these attacks will seem very small compared to what can occur in what you call terrorism. "
