Appeasement Doesn't Pay!

2003 - Just when Spain has voted Zapatero in, and to withdraw its troops from Iraq, the Spanish authorities have been catching Islamic terrorists plotting against Spanish people, and have had their hands full ever since.

2005 - As soon as Israel gave a vital piece of its own land to the Arab "Palestinians", the Islamic Hamas terror with its genocidal ideology only rose among their mainstream.

France, who was spearheading the anti - Iraq - war campaign, has been targeted, like the 'Eiffel Tower' (2006), so was the attack on French tourists in Arab Muslim Mauritania (Dec. 2007).

Jan. 2008 Belgium that was also very vocal in the "anti war movement" was under serious terror alerts especially at its transportation system, from Islamic plotters.

Feb. 2008 - Just when Australia has voted towards the left and away from the "hawk" J. Howard, the Australians have been hearing about horrific confessions of Jihadists in terror plots, especially the "footy Jihad" to massacre at least a 1,000 people.
