No Islamic terror in Madrid train bombings March 2004

Just a note to clarify the point that neither Al Quaeda nor any other Islamic terror network were responsible for the Madrid train bombings of 11 March 2004,which left nearly 200 Spanish citizens dead and over 1850 wounded. The Islamic hypothesis was in reality a cover story (among several other high flying kites) for a 'golpe de estado', i.e. a violent coup d'etat designed by X to remove the conservative PP government from power, led by JM Aznar. The sole and unique beneficiary of the action was the Socialist Party, the PSOE, which in the confusion of the aftermath of the bombings, between the 11-14th March 2004, managed to create sufficient hysteria and doubt among Spaniards to shift enough votes to win the general elections of March 14 2004.

The use of 'flash mobs' in front of PP HQs, sms messaging, as well as distorted and deceitful radio and television coverage by PRISA media, kept the pot boiing over that fateful weekend. Who or which institutions planned and organised the 11M? Frank Gaffney probably got it right in 2005, pointing the finger at elements of Spain's disloyal and treacherous police and intelligence services, working alongside the PSOE, ETA and Morrocan Intelligence. Who supplied the explosives and made the rucksack bombs? Probably elements of ETA and the Policia Cientifica, most likely under the direction of Jose Juan Sanchez Manzano. How many Islamic jihadis were jailed for their crimes?

At the last count none, though a certain Jamal Zougam was given 42000 years in jail illegally, for a crime he did not commit. Was ETA involved? Yes, which explains the incredible political concessions made by the PSOE to ETA-linked political front groups in the Vascongadas since 2004. Nowadays, the Basque Country is a total mafia fiefdom run in the interests of ETA and its allies. Why did the 11M happen? Not for the first time in its history, when the PSOE realised it was never likely to win a democratic election in 2004,it resorted to force; the planning of the 11M was probably subcontracted by Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba to close friends in the Spanish police. What now? The PP government in power since November 2011 made a pact with the PSOE in 2008 never to acknowledge or investigate the true story of the 11M, a shameful act of cowardice and betrayal.
