|"Extermination is on its way" proclaims one of the placards|
An adherent of "liberation theology," she is, the BBC and other leftwing media cheerfully stress, a sharp critic of what she sees as the deep-seated misogyny of the Catholic Church.
(This is the same leftist media which customarily soft-peddles the grotesque and frequently gruesome misogyny that's manifest in Islam, of course.)
"Followers of her movement, Proces Constituent, which has signed up around 50,000 Catalans this year, are mainly non-believing leftists," we are informed by the BBC. "She won't run for office, and says she won't create a political party, but she's undeniably a political figure on a mission - to tear down international capitalism, and change the map of Spain."
Her ten-point programme incudes "An end to xenophobia and repeal of immigration laws" and 'International "solidarity", leaving Nato, and the abolition of armed forces in a future free Catalonia.'
We can hazard a guess about what this Far Left radical in nun's habit thinks of Israel. I'd wager her views don't reflect those of her fellow-Spaniard Jose Maria Aznar.
We can but wonder why this woman and others of her political persuasion seek to flood Catalonia (and for that matter other European lands) with immigrants of the non-assimilating kind; is it some kind of death wish on their part? I guess so.
Around the same time that the BBC was reporting about Forcades and her belief that Catalonia should throw open its doors to all comers, a writer in a publication emphatically determined to expose the dangers facing Western civilisation was reporting:
'A jihadist group affiliated with Al Qaeda has threatened to carry out terrorist attacks in Catalonia, an autonomous region in northeastern Spain that is home to the largest concentration of radical Islamists in Europe.
The threats were issued by a group called "Africamuslima" in response to efforts by Catalonian lawmakers to increase surveillance of radical Salafists seeking to impose Islamic Sharia law in Spain and other parts of Europe.
Catalonia -- a region of 7.5 million people centered on the Mediterranean city of Barcelona -- is home to the largest Muslim population in Spain. Most of the estimated 450,000 Muslims in Catalonia are from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
Many of the Muslims living in Catalonia are shiftless single males who are unemployed and "susceptible to jihadist recruitment," according to diplomatic cables obtained by Wikileaks and published by the Madrid-based El País newspaper.
Spanish authorities are especially concerned about the threat posed by Salafism, a radical strain of Islam that seeks to re-establish an Islamic empire [Caliphate] across the Middle East, North Africa and Spain, which Salafists view as a Muslim state that must be reconquered for Islam.
Spain's National Intelligence Center [CNI] says Catalonia is home to hundreds and possibly thousands of Salafists who, according to intelligence experts, pose the greatest threat to Spain's national security.
Catalan officials recently have redoubled efforts to improve surveillance of Salafist groups in the region....'From Spain to Scandinavia, and in the United States, through the connivance of supine governments and perverse leftists, radical Islamists have been making alarming headway since 9/11, suggests this Christian-made video (hat tip: Vlad Tepes blog):
