Alarm in Spain over al-Qaeda call for its "reconquest"

EUX.TV reported The emergence of a new al-Qaeda-linked organization in Northern Africa is alarming Spain, which is concerned about Islamists' calls for the reconquest of the country they regard as a lost part of the Muslim world.

Concern is one thing, but what are they going to do about it.
"We will not be in peace until we set our foot again in our beloved al-Andalus," al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said on claiming responsibility for an attack which killed at least 24 people in Algiers on Wednesday.
Islam, the religion of piece (not peace, but piece, which is what was left after bombs blow up.
Al-Andalus is the Moorish name for Spain, parts of which were ruled by Muslims for about eight centuries until the last Moorish bastion, Granada, succumbed to the Christian Reconquest in 1492.
I wonder if that is why the queen sent Columbus on his trip; maybe they did not know the reconquest would be successful.
The terrorists will undoubtedly attempt to extend their offensive from Northern Africa to European soil, anti-terrorism judge Baltasar Garzon warned, cautioning that Spain was at a "very high risk" of suffering an Islamist attack.
All of Europe is at risk, and the EU needs to wake up very soon.
