“The left defends any gratuitous offense, even the most beastly ones, against Christians as ‘freedom of expression.’ At the same time, the mere fact of criticizing Islam is branded as ‘Islamophobia.’ …. Is this still Spain or are we in Iran?” — Elantir, blogger, Contando Estrelas.
The chutzpah is off the charts: Voice of Europe reported on Saturday that the Ishbilia mosque in Seville, Spain, is demanding that King Felipe VI apologize for the Reconquista, the Christian Reconquest of Spain.
The mosque’s president, Yihad Sarasua, addressed the King in a Facebook post: “Sir, being the King of Spain, I believe that the historical moment has arrived to carry out the recognition of the vileness, plunder, displacement and murders carried out by orders of the Catholic kings and their most direct collaborators, which culminated with the surrender of Granada and the breach of everything subscribed to the Muslim community.
A few days ago, the new president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Abrader, demanded that King Felipe VI ask for forgiveness for the conquest by Spain, and now a mosque in Seville is doing the same but for the Reconquista (the Reconquest, when the Muslim rulers were driven out of Andalusia-Spain).
The leader of the Spanish far-right party Vox is following in the footsteps of Donald Trump with demands for a wall at the border to stop the flow of immigrants.
Santiago Abascal believes that not only should “insurmountable walls” be built at the borders of Spain’s north African enclaves to halt “the wave of illegal immigrants”, but that Morocco should foot the bill.
In a new book published this week, called “Santiago Abascal: España vertebrada” Abascal reveals more about the immigration policies of the Spain’s newest political party.
Spanish investigators believe that two assailants who broke into the North Korean embassy in Madrid last month and took hostages have links to the CIA, according to reports.
None of the 10 individuals who broke into the embassy before tying up and beating staff as they looked for information on computers have been caught.
But sources from the investigation told the Spanish newspaper El País that they been able to identify several of the attackers from video evidence.
Although the majority of the assailants who sped away in two of the embassy’s cars before vanishing have been identified as Koreans, two of the group “have been recognised by Spanish secret services as being linked with the CIA”, El País reported on Wednesday.
Ever since the leftist coalition’s soft coup last summer, Spain’s immigration policy changed dramatically overnight as we covered in detail at the time. Consequently, as has happened across The West when immigration policies unravel and begin to import chaos in massive numbers, voters turn to the more conservative parties for solutions.
Police in the northeastern Spanish region of Catalonia arrested 18 members of a jihadi cell plotting an attack in Barcelona — and then released all but three.
The arrests have drawn renewed attention to the continuing problem of radical Islam in Catalonia, which has one of the largest per capita Muslim populations in Europe.
The cell — comprised of individuals from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya and Morocco — was broken up on January 15, when more than a hundred police officers raided five properties in Barcelona and the Catalan town of Igualada.
The wave of right-wing resurgence that has flooded Europe following the refugee crisis has reached Spain. An upstart anti-immigrant party has entered the parliament in Spain’s Andalusia and might yet become a kingmaker.
Spain’s most populous region and one of its economic powerhouses, Andalusia held parliamentary elections this past weekend. Although the vote was technically won by the Socialists, who have governed the region for almost 40 years, it is the surprising success of the right-wing Vox party that made the headlines.
One man died and 19 were injured as hundreds of sub-Saharan Africans – all men – tried to get to Spain’s enclave in North Africa, Melilla, separated from Morocco by a fence. About 200 reportedly managed to enter the Spanish territory; some of them allegedly joined other migrants in a local center with the victorious chants “boza, boza.”
Cientos d migrantes subsaharianos han saltado hoy la Valla d Melilla.
El Gobierno deberá aclarar el motivo por el q varios han resultado heridos y uno ha fallecido. De igual forma, tendrá q explicar a cuántas personas h devuelto a 🇲🇦 d manera sumaria. #FronteraSur #Bossa pic.twitter.com/71Ck8xpimA

Spanish police have dismantled a jihadi network operating inside and across more than a dozen Spanish prisons. The network, allegedly linked to the Islamic State, was established and operated by one of the most implacable jihadis in the Spanish prison system — apparently under the noses of prison authorities.
The network’s existence has called into question not only the effectiveness of security procedures in Spanish prisons, but also of Spanish “deradicalization” programs, which are aimed at “rehabilitating” Islamic militants for eventual “reinsertion” into society.
Podemos, the far left party of the Socialist coalition running Spain now after its soft coup in June, says it will propose a minimum aid of 1,200 euros annually for each immigrant’s child – “regardless of their administrative situation” – meaning, whether in Spain legally or not .
The AIReF considers that the total population of Spain will increase between 4 and 13 million people in 30 years, so that it will reach between 51 and 60 million people by 2050. Immigration will be “fundamental” to maintain this population gain.
I don’t think they’re taking the inevitable pogroms into account.
The existence of a Muslim kingdom in Medieval Spain where different races and religions lived harmoniously in multicultural tolerance is one of today’s most widespread myths. University professors teach it. Journalists repeat it. Tourists visiting the Alhambra accept it. It has reached the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal, which sings the virtues of the “pan-confessional humanism” of Andalusian Spain (July 18, 2003). The Economist echoes the belief: “Muslim rulers of the past were far more tolerant of people of other faiths than were Catholic ones. For example, al-Andalus’s multi-cultural, multi-religious states ruled by Muslims gave way to a Christian regime that was grossly intolerant even of dissident Christians, and that offered Jews and Muslims a choice only between being forcibly converted and being expelled (or worse).”1 The problem with this belief is that it is historically unfounded, a myth. The fascinating cultural achievements of Islamic Spain cannot obscure the fact that it was never an example of peaceful convivencia.
The 25-year-old victim was spotted lying in a pool of blood in the notorious Ravel district of Barcelona in Spain early this morning.
Foreign investment has shrunk in Madrid and all but dried up in separatist Barcelona, streets are dirtier, illegal immigrants wander around carefree selling fake goods, and crime is up, amongst other things.
