MSNBC is running a special section on how wonderful it is that Europe is being overrun by Islam; heres a video report about Spain that is so whitewashed and sanitized youd think the Spaniards never had a problem with the Moors: Reviving Granadas Muslim traditions.
" GRANADA, Spain -
In southern Spain, once the center of Islamic learning during the reign of the Moors, some Spaniards are reviving the tradition by converting to Islam. "

Yeah, right! Barf!
Does it show the burning cars in France? Or the stone throwing "students"?
This makes another country to watch. Maybe they'll try to bring back the idea of conquistadors?
"Muslim Spain was a perfect example of a flourishing society in which Jews, Christians and Muslims lived in mutual respect and cooperation."
Muslim Spain was Christian Spain for over 400 years before being conquered by Islamic Armies in the 8th Century. That is the way the Islamic Religion has been historically spread, though military invasion and occupation. Treatment of conquered people has the same goal, the minimizing of other religions and conversion of the indigenous people. Among other rules for non Muslims in Muslim Spain; Christians and Jews could not bear arms -- Muslims could; Christians and Jews could not ride horses -- Muslims could; Christians and Jews had to get permission to build or fix places or worship -- Muslims did not; Christians and Jews had to pay certain taxes which Muslims did not; Christians could not proselytize -- Muslims could; Christians and Jews had to bow to their Muslim masters; Christians and Jews had to live under the laws set forth in the Koran, not under either their own religious or secular law; Christians and Jew's word in a court of law was not equal to a Muslim's Word; Christian and Jewish families had to give up a son for conversion and military service in Muslim armies and the most beautiful and largest Christian Churches were converted to Mosques. And the list goes on.
Today, 1300 years later, a Christian or Jew living in an Islamic country will still have to live nearly under these very same laws. I can see why the head of the Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations would want us all to do "our part" to create such a world.
The history of Western Europe would undeniably be very different had the Frankish army been defeated in 732.
Like the victory of Constantinople some fifteen years earlier, Muslim advances had finally been thwarted, and the steady Reconquista of Spain and parts of Byzantine Empire began apace.
Though the Byzantines finally succumbed by 1453, the Turks were eventually defeated in the great naval battle at Lepanto in 1571, and turned away from Vienna in 1683.
The threat of the Caliphate encroaching on Western Europe never penetrated as far west again--until today, as unassimilated Muslim immigrants threaten to "behead those who insult Islam" and foment rage at every perceived slight.
So the media are on the side of the train bombers and throat slitters and are actively working for the overthrow of civilized governments.
Coming to a Country near you...the US....if you vote Democrat
MSNBC doesn't realize that radical Islamists would kill them, too, even with their PC attitude, if they don't convert.
" should rethink burning effigies. It contributes to global warming. < /sarc >
But pinatas are very celebratory."
The MSM loves conversion stories, as long as it's Christian to Moslem.
AHAHAHAHAHA! What a joke. This article proves that journalists aren't required to have any formal education, just a GED, a pencil and a membership in a leftist moonbat party, in this case a membership in the totalitarian blood cult known as Islam.
.....shrug when a bunch of foreigners blow up their capital.....
I recomend The Politically Incorrect Guide to ISLAM (And The Crusades). .Author Robert Spencer. Regnery Press 2005. A cryptic remark is on the back cover concerning the author.
He lives in a Secure,Undisclosed location.
"shrug when a bunch of foreigners blow up their capital..... "
I'm sure Keith Doberman will have this on his low-rated show
