Members of the far-right “Madrid Social Home” group attacked Madrid’s main Mosque M-30 with firebombs on Thursday evening. The local media didn’t report any casualties after the terrorist attack.
Besides setting fire at the mosque, the radicals hung a banner on the wall of the mosque, reading: “Today Brussels, tomorrow Madrid?” The also called as “Ramiro Ledesma” group was proud of the attack, posting it on Twitter and saying that it has launched a “campaign against radical Islam.” The radicals claimed that all mosques, including the M-30, finance the Islamic State (IS).
According to Think Spain website, after the brutal Paris attacks in November, Spanish reporters interviewed dozens of Muslims pouring out of the M-30 Mosque following Friday prayer. They all condemned November’s barbaric attack and they stressed that Spain is their home and they would never harm anyone.
“Without a doubt, what happened in Brussels on March 22nd is unacceptable, nor is it accepted within our logic or religion to commit such nefarious attacks…Muslims all around the world have condemned this terrible event that took the lives of innocent victims, including Muslims as well.”
The statement, was sent by Imam Hussam Khoja, who also condemned the terrorist attack by the Spanish far-right group. “We also condemn the reactions of extremists following what happened, including what took place yesterday afternoon by an extremist group that tried to attack our great mosque and cause damage to it…We ask for the public to condemn this event and every other extremist act, reaction or prejudice against a religion.”
