Al Qaeda Opens First Embassy in Madrid By Scott Ott
Spain’s newly-elected socialist prime minister today declared the start of a “new era of protection from terror” as he cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the al Qaeda embassy in downtown Madrid.
The building, formerly known as the U.S. Embassy, will house the offices and “manufacturing facilities” of the global religious social services organization headed by renowned philosopher Usama bin Laden.
“Spain’s involvement in the war on terror caused the recent train station bombings,” said Prime Minister-elect José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. “Now that the Spanish people have elected a socialist government, and embraced al Qaeda’s diplomats, we have nothing to fear. Al Qaeda has promised to protect us from extremists like those at the U.S. White House and Pentagon.”
Mr. Zapatero said he was “pleasantly surprised at al Qaeda’s reasonable pricing for high-quality protection.”
