Spain: “Extremely dangerous ISIS member,” 2 other Muslims arrested days before Gay Pride festival

This Muslim was in an “advanced state of radicalization,” which means that he was fully prepared to gain the promise of Paradise for those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (Qur’an 9:111).

“‘Highly radicalised’ ISIS terror suspect is arrested in Madrid just days before two million arrive in the city for Gay Pride festival,” by Gerard Couzens, Mailonline, June 21, 2017:

Police in Madrid have arrested three Moroccans including an ‘extremely dangerous ISIS member’ just days before two million people arrive in the city for the Gay Pride festival.

The 32-year-old man was described as being in an ‘advanced state of radicalisation’ and likened to terrorists behind recent attacks in the UK and France.

Two other suspects he shared a flat with near to Madrid’s Atocha train station, one aged 38 and the other aged 33, were also held in dawn raids on Wednesday.

Madrid’s famous Gay Pride festival will be held from Friday 23 June to Sunday 2 July.

A spokesman for Spain’s National Police, referring to ISIS by its acronym DAESH, said: ‘Officers have arrested a 32-year-old Moroccan man living in Madrid who belonged to the terrorist organisation DAESH and was in an advanced state of radicalisation.

‘He had an extremely dangerous profile, coinciding with those of the terrorists recently involved in attacks in the United Kingdom and France, and was considered an obvious threat to national security.

‘The suspect had carried out an exhaustive study and search for official DAESH training material.

‘He had compiled an abundant amount of jihadist terror manuals such as a suicide bomber manual or an Electronic Jihad manual.

‘The subjects covered by these documents range from ideological preparation through to acts of martyrdom.

‘There are other manuals that the police are analysing at the moment.’

The force added in a statement: ‘During the investigation, it has been possible to detect different markers on social media that link this man to ISIS members in Syrian-Iraqi war zones.

‘He was also trying to recruit people in his close circle so he could convince them to wage violent jihad in our country.’…
