Spain’s al Qaeda Cell

With Civil War and an Arab uprising in the Middle East ongoing, it is easy to forget that al Qaeda are still at work in many western countries.

Last week, officials in Spain captured one of the largest operations they have ever found in their country.

The al Qaeda cell was apparently targeting a Gibraltar shopping mall as well as certain British territories which have only been identified as such.

The terror cell consisted of a Moroccan and 2 Chechen-Russians.

Not only does this show that al Qaeda is still around, but that they may include people who we view as “caucasian,” people that we typically don’t stereotype as terrorists.

It’s important to pay attention to the world around you. You never know where the terrorists will be, when they will attack and what they look like. This is a great example of that.

For all you know, they may be your neighbor.

Just one more concern to have in this already stress-filled world!
