FRENCH JUDGE Bruguière says there's no connection between ETA and Islamic terror:
No evidence has emerged to suggest any collaboration or connection between the Basque separatist movement ETA and extremist organizations, French Anti-Terrorist Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere told Spanish radio yesterday. [Does that mean that ETA is a moderate organization? -- ed. No, it's just the PC-traditional way to avoid using the words 'Islamic' and 'terrorist' in the same sentence]

“We have uncovered no document showing a link, not even of a logistical nature, between ETA and extremist organizations,” Bruguiere, an expert on the Al-Qaeda network, told broadcaster Cadena Ser.
I wonder what ETA members were doing in Tehran back in February this year, attending the "revolutionary jamboree" (in Amir Taheri's words) that takes place each year in the Iranian capital. They haven't missed one edition since the 'terror convention' started.
