Jihadists Target Spain

“The actions of your ancestors are the reason for our actions today.”

Islamic militants are stepping up a propaganda war against Spain. In recent months, Islamic State and other jihadist groups have produced a flurry of videos and documents calling on Muslims to reconquer al-Andalus.

Al-Andalus is the Arabic name given to those parts of Spain, Portugal and France occupied by Muslim conquerors (also known as the Moors) from 711 to 1492. Many Muslims believe that territories Muslims lost during the Christian Reconquest of Spain still belong to the realm of Islam. They claim that Islamic law gives them the right to re-establish Muslim rule there.

    It’s always amusing to consider how modern-day Muslims read history. However, there really is no excuse for Gatestone’s Soren kern.

    “A recent Islamic State document includes a list of grievances against Spain for wrongs done to Muslims since the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa on July 16, 1212, when the Christian forces of King Alfonso VIII of Castile routed the Almohad Muslim rulers of the southern half of the Iberian Peninsula. More than 100,000 Muslims were killed in the battle, which was a key victory in the Catholic Monarchs’ “Reconquista” of Spain.”

    Kern fails to clarify if these statements are his editorializing or statements from the Islamic State document. Surely he would know that the term “Catholic Monarchs” applied to Isabella and Ferdinand who reigned 250 years AFTER the referenced battle.

      It would be nice to think that 100,000 muzzies were killed in that battle. but it would have been a lot if it was one tenth of that.

        Apparently, 100,000 muzzies were killed in this important battle. Tolosa was the gateway to Andalucia. Check this out:

        But let me correct my error. Spain, until the conquest of Granada in 1492 was a divided country — the southern part — al Andalus, ruled by the Muslims and the northern parts, ruled by Catholic monarchs. My studies in Spanish history mainly focused on the period 1391 to the 1800’s, so I erroneously assumed that only Isabella and Ferdinand were the “Catholic Monarchs.
