Hamas targest Spain

In some conservative traditions of Islam the world is divided into two components: Dar al-Islam (Arabic: دار الإسلام literally house of submission) is a term widely used in the Islamic world to refer to those lands under Muslim government(s), and, Dar al-Harb (Arabic: دار الحرب "house of war") which is the home of the infidels or unbelievers (Arabic: kufr).

Just like Israel, Spain is occupying what is considered Muslim land because it was once part of the Dar al-Islam. Is the "free Palistine" movement going to demand an end to the "brutal occupation" of Spain? The article below indicates the the Muslim Brotherhood has issues a Fatwa.

HAMAS Targets Spain, By Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld December 30, 2005

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos’ efforts earlier this year to remove HAMAS from the European Union’s terrorist list, have done little to change HAMAS’ agenda. It is not only Palestine that children in the West Bank and Gaza are asked to liberate; now they are asked to liberate Seville.......A Fatwa calls on Muslims.... “Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and a victor after being expelled from it twice – once from the south, from Andalusia, and a second time, from the east, when it knocked several times on the doors of Athens.” a senior sunni cleric ruled that Muslims should re-conquer “'former Islamic colonies' in Andalus (Spain), southern Italy, Sicily, the Balkans and the Mediterranean islands."
