JNS.orgSpanish authorities have arrested members of an alleged Islamist terror cell on suspicion of trying to obtain explosives and bomb a Jewish bookstore in Barcelona.

The terrorists were also planning to target synagogues and other public buildings, said an investigating magistrate, Reuters reported. Of the 11 people arrested, seven are being formally investigated and are being held in custody until their trials.

Authorities found 25 bags that belonged to the suspects containing trace amounts of chemicals that could be used to make explosives. The leader of the cell, who was one of the suspects detained, has said that he had been “about to attack a Jewish bookshop in Barcelona.”

    Given what frothing, irrational, psychotic Jew-haters the Spanish (especially the Catalans) are, I have to wonder if they plan to jail these Islamonazis or release them and help them to kill Jews.
