ETA concludes it has killed 819 people needlessly

The leader of Batasuna, ETA's equivalent of Sinn Fein, has just declared that "No one, not even ETA, considers it possible to build an independent state in the Basque Country through armed conflict”, and "it would be an error to think Basque independence can come about through anything but democratic means”. More at El Pais (Pdf only)

Not that Arnaldo Otegi is prepared to condemn ETA violence, but if is is not advancing the cause of Basque independence, it does rather beg the question as to why they should be carrying on bombing and shooting. My tally of ETA kills comes to 819, including two Ecuadoreans killed in December.

I`ve read that their Language is not related to the Germanic and Romantic families.

On the genetic inheritance ..I saw that we , the English ,are in fact chiefly decended from the people that were here before the Anglo Saxons . Its very mysterious isn`t it .Lets have a close look at the the Age when all of this was happening

Hmm. Wikipedia doesn't seem to back this (the Kelt theory) up. I notice that editing of the Spanish article has been disabled. Wonder who're worse - the Etarristas or the anti-Etarristas?
