In Spain, a neo-Nazi group has attacked the country’s biggest mosque as anti-immigrant politicians across the continent blamed mass migration for the bombings.
Members of Hogar Social Madrid threw smoke bombs and hung a banner at the Madrid mosque that read “Brussels today, Madrid next?”. The group also threatened to cut the throats of Muslims inside, according to witnesses.
The leader of Italy’s anti-immigrant Northern League party was on his way to Zaventem airport to catch a flight when bombers struck on Tuesday. Matteo Salvini said he had not been afraid, but “furious”.Source
Similar actions were held across Spain by a group called in Salamanca, Zamora and elsewhere.
The photo below is from a group in Granada. Appropriately enough, it looks as if it was taken from the top of the Alhambra, the former Muslim fortress/palace.

Here is a video from the group in Salamanca, where I lived for a while.
The groups in the various cities seem to have different names - Lo Nuestro (What is Ours), Csyn Salamanca, etc. - but their actions must presumably have been coordinated in some way. I'm not sure if there is some larger grouping that they are a part of. Their tactics seem similar to the Generation Identity groups in other countries but I'm not sure if they have any formal affiliation.
