    Don't blame 'em for being worried. The Muslims wouldn't be as kind to them if they were occupied like they were those centuries ago.

    Al Andalus is actually a major area i studied during my undergrad. Its a facinating time. Im not surprised they are worried there. One of the books I read studying it was the Martyrs of Cordoba. Basically i accounted for many Christian executions during a short time period. (its been a while since i read it so i cant be more specific). Granted alot of those Christians wanted to be martyred for some odd reason, but its not exactly the best time for Christians.

    THE ONCE AND FUTURE AL-ANDALUS
    Al-Andalus remains on Muslim minds and on that To-Do List.
    March 15, 2017

    ...

    For on the To-Do list of Muslims, the lands that were once part of Dar al-Islam are those that should be the first to be recovered for Muslim rule. As it says in the Qur’an 2:191, “Expel them from wherever they have expelled you.” And for several years, some Muslims in Spain have been conducting a campaign on social media in support of the Islamic State, while the Islamic State, for its part, has continually called for the “return” of Spain to Muslim rule, as in a video it produced in Spanish in which an IS spokesman says: “I say to the entire world as a warning: We are living under the Islamic flag, the Islamic caliphate. We will die for it until we liberate those occupied lands, from Jakarta to Andalusia. And I declare: Spain is the land of our forefathers and we are going to take it back with the power of Allah.

    ...

    But instead of winning Arab gratitude, the Spanish government simply whetted Arab appetites for more. Claims to Al-Andalus have multiplied. Osama bin Laden himself referred frequently to Al-Andalus, and the need to again make it Muslim. And so too did members of ISIS, beginning in 2014 and repeated most recently this January, when the Islamic State issued a threat that it would “retake the land [of Spain] from the invaders.” For Muslims, the Spanish are the invaders, and they the dispossessed but rightful possessors, who deserve to, and will, recover Al-Andalus. The Spanish don’t need reminding that while they have so far suffered only one major terrorist attack, the simultaneous bombing of four train cars as they travelled between Alcala de Henares and the Atocha Subway Station back in 2004, that attack killed 191 people and remains the deadliest single terror attack in Europe.

    ...

    This headache can be cured. Don’t make it easier, don’t help swell the Muslim population of Spain or the European Union. Don’t do anything more to a future Al-Andalus. Give up Ceuta, give up Melilla. Kutuzov defeated Napoleon’s Grande Armee not by fighting, but by strategic retreat. History teaches that sometimes, less is more.

    Ceuta and Melilla serve a useful purpose in protecting the Straight of Gibraltar. The free navigation from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean is assured as long as Spain is present.

    One of the fears that racists propagate is that Muslims will turn Europe into an Islamic caliphate. This is precisely why Ceuta and Melilla must remain part of Spain. They represent one of the two pillars of Hercules and a centuries-long reconquest of Spain for Catholicism.

    The bishops of Córdoba, Sevilla, and Granada have nothing to fear. Their brother bishop of Cádiz and Ceuta should tell them to pray that God will deepen their faith and protect Spain's experienced military who keep a watchful eye protecting Europe and do their best and whatever more is needed. Ad infinitum plus ultra.

    Sadly, the English have decided to retreat from the European Union leaving poor Gibraltar all alone. Until the people of Gibraltar want to rejoin the mainland of Spain, Britain could agree to allow joint administration of the Rock and, as part of an agreement, the Gibraltarians can remain in the European Union where they wish to be.

    Yup it looks like this could turn into another Jerusalem where Akmed The Great supposedly flew into heaven on his horse and left 4 imprints in the rock while doing it.

    Fokking moosleems are so gullible and stupid.
