This is a transcript of the videotaped message claiming al-Qaeda carried out the
Madrid train bombings, as translated by the Associated Press.
We declare our responsibility for what happened in
Madrid exactly two-and-a-half years after the attacks on
New York and Washington.
It is a response to your
collaboration with the criminals Bush and his allies.
This is a response to the crimes that you have caused in
the world, and specifically in Iraq and Afghanistan, and
there will be more, if God wills it.
You love life and we love death, which gives an example
of what the Prophet Muhammad said.
If you don't stop your injustices, more and more blood will flow and these attacks will seem very small compared to what can occur in what you call terrorism.
This is a statement by the military spokesman for al-Qaeda in Europe, Abu Dujan al-Afghani.
