Muslims Demand "Right of Return" to Spain
The Gatestone Institute ^ | 2/21/14 | Soeren Kern

Posted on 02/23/2014 9:21:03 AM PST by marshmallow

Observers say that by granting citizenship to all descendants of expelled Muslims, Spain, virtually overnight, would end up with the largest Muslim population in the European Union.

"Is Spain aware of what might be assumed when it makes peace with some but not with others? Is Spain aware of what this decision [not to include Muslims in the return] could cost?... Does Spain have alternatives to the foreign investment from Muslims? — Ahmed Bensalh, Morisco-Moroccan journalist.

"Persecution of Jews was just that, while what happened with the Arabs was part of a conflict. There is no basis for comparison." — Jose Ribeiro e Castro, Portuguese lawmaker who drafted Portuguese law of return.

Muslim groups are demanding Spanish citizenship for potentially millions of descendants of Muslims who were expelled from Spain during the Middle Ages.

The growing clamor for "historical justice" comes after the recent approval of a law that would grant Spanish citizenship to descendants of Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain in 1492.

Muslim supporters say they are entitled to the same rights and privileges as Jews because both groups were expelled from Spain under similar historical circumstances.

But historians point out that the Jewish presence in Spain predates the arrival of Christianity in the country and that their expulsion was a matter of bigotry. By contrast, the Muslims in Spain were colonial occupiers who called the territory Al-Andalus and imposed Arabic as the official language. Historians say their expulsion was a matter of decolonization.

Historical justice would demand that nuclear bombs be dropped on Mecca for the raping,murdering,and misery inflicted on the world from Muslims since the seventh century.

11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:
“You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael,
for the Lord has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward all his brothers
.” Genesis 16:11-12

That’s like asking a child molester not to look at kids. Imposing Sharia law is part of being a true mooslum.

Expect to hear this same kind of nonsensical BS here from the Mexican Nationals. It’s coming. People better drop all of the political correctness bull**** and start getting serious about defending their countries and their money. The communists are backing this. Total world chaos is the only way they can win.

It took 800 years to rid Spain of the Islamic menace. Don’t let it back in. Islam is destruction and stagnation.

Mooselimbs are demanding right-of-return so they can invade the country again.

And what of Christian right of return to Constantinople? What of Jewish right of return to any and all of the lands they once held in the eastern Mediterranean region?

Are the filthy muzzies okay with those rights and others of a similar nature?

I hope you’re being sarcastic. If they have every right to return to Spain (given they, the Moors of North Africa, invaded it originally, were not invited and behaved as every conqueror does over time) and were subsequently overtime kicked out because of their attempts to subvert, convert, dominate and destroy the previous culture (Christian Western Civilization, the eternal enemy of islam, along with Judaism) they would do so again if invited back given it is the command of Mohammed. They will naturally attempt to impose Sharia Law, as they are attempting to do elsewhere in Europe, Great Britain, and before long, the U.S. and everywhere else that, due to either gross ignorance or incredible stupidity, invites them as immigrants. The West continues to commit suicide in dealing peacefully with Muslims. Madness. Remember the word islam, means to submit, not coexist, not be recognized as equal, but to submit, to their system of a so-called religion, which in actuality, is a complete social system; political, economic, legal and religious process. No separation of church and state, and second class citizenship, or worse, for non-muslims. There is no place in an advancing, modern world for such a system, unless the world wishes to return to the 7th century. The West has plenty of problems facing it’s demise, it doesn’t need to accelerate its decline via viewing islam as some kind of legitimate alternative. If historical truths were provided in schools in this day and age, it would be seen for what it truly is, which is why Spain, and the rest of Europe fought so hard to keep islam out of its territory (Charlemagne, the Battle of Lepanto, Gates of Vienna, etc.) Forewarned is forearmed.

All types of people should demand the right to return to arab lands and for the right of ownership of lands that were stolen from them. Two can play at this game.

Spain should tell them sure, you have every right to come back — as long as you don’t mind being burned at the stake. Muslims demand Spaniards commit suicide... Yeah, right, Haji scum, you first.

And how, pray tell will they determine who these “decendants” are after some 600 years-DNA testing, a master list of every muslim family compiled when they were tossed out in the Middle Ages?

My ancestors left Spain with thousands of others in the 15-1600’s due to an oppressive government, and we have the records to prove it-can we all have Spanish citizenship, too? How about reparations for the property they lost? This whole thing is just ridiculous...

Isabella threw the Muslims out of Spain in the same year she funded Columbus. Both were good decisions.

As for “Right of Return” long term title to land usually is acquired by the historically validated method - conquest.

Also, after a number of years, said land title transfer is not subject to review in court. Hmmn - 2014 - 1492 = 502 years. At 13 years per Muslim generation, more than 40 generations of Muslims have passed.

As lawyers put it, The statute of Limitations bars such a suit.

As Glades Guru puts it, it it past time to play Cowboys & Muslims.

Muslims should be granted “rights” when christians are granted the right to evangelize and open churches in all muslim countries. Not until.
