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.
In any event, the descendants of Muslims expelled from Spain are believed to number in the millions-possibly tens of millions-and most of them now live in North Africa. Observers say that by granting citizenship to all of them, Spain, virtually overnight, would end up with the largest Muslim population in the European Union.
In a recent essay published by the Morocco-based newspaper Correo Diplomático, the Morisco-Moroccan journalist Ahmed Bensalh wrote that the "decision to grant Spanish citizenship to the grandchildren of the Hebrews in Spain in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, while ignoring the Moriscos, the grandsons of the Muslims, is without doubt, flagrant segregation and unquestionable discrimination, as both communities suffered equally in Spain at that time. The decision could also be considered by the international community to be an historic act of absolute immorality and injustice...This decision is absolutely disgraceful and dishonorable."

There's a reason that the patron saint of Spain is called "the Moor Slayer."
I thought it was the ‘Moops’!
no you Moslems, go back to your liar father satan who spawned you
All Muslim who can swim the reverse Magellan Course with only one stop on the North Shore of Australia and without using the Panama Canal can returm!
I was really pissed when I read this, and then your Seinfeld reference made me laugh. :)
I’m sorry to say that I’d forgotten that gag. It still made me laugh.
Spain should use this Islamic nonsense as an excuse to expel every Muslim living in Spain, making the world a better place one country at a time.
Why are you so easy on them?
Don’t sell these moose limbs short.
Just look at what obammy, your basic low rent moosie turd has accomplished.
Spain, don’t forget the hard fought lesson you learned last time you were overrun by the murderous, intolerant followers of mo’bomb-head. Don’t let their recent claims of being the religion of peace fool you. Islam is the religion of blowing people to pieces and mosques are military outputs. Keep them out and kick them out while you still can.
The world should give them the”right of return” to their territories of 650.
Insofar as this pushes some of these Europeans to pull their heads out of the sand & wake up to what has been going on. Unity & homogeneity are strengths; diversity is a weakness.
I-for one-love it!
I-for one-love it!
Gee, I wouldn’t mind the “right of return” (what total BS) to some of the countries my ancestors came from - especially Italy.
The muzzies are like a virus - why don’t they try to fix their own forsaken hellholes.
GO POUND SAND MOHAMMAD !
I actually thought this was satire at first, I’m wrong, no?
Once you cure a disease, you don’t invite it back.
