BRUSSELS - The number of people identified attempting to illegally enter European Union nations in 2013 rose sharply over 2012, the border agency Frontex reported Friday.

In its annual risk analysis, Frontex revealed 107,000 detections of undocumented migrants in 2013, compared to 72,500 in 2012. One in four migrants hailed from Syria, it said.

The 2013 figure is still lower than in 2011, when 141,000 undocumented migrants arrived in Europe as a result of the Arab Spring movement.

As Bob Dylan shouted in his 1966 "Royal Albert Hall" concert,

"I don't believe you!"

(Meaning these immigration numbers.)

Way too low IMHO.

Thank heaven for the original Reconquista in Old Spain.

It will be primarily Catholics, rather than Moors, that takeover the southwest when the new Reconquista occurs.

The same can't be said for Europe which will see the undoing of the good work of Charles Martel.

That is a very interesting point! Pushing the Muslims out of Spain did help keep them out of the rest of western Europe.

As for the New Reconquista, I don't think the Muslims ever would have made it to the New World during the colonial period though, even if they had held on to part of Spain.

If there had been no Spanish colonization of the New World, what would the New World look like today? That is a very interesting question. We're getting invaded now by people of mostly "Native American" stock, which is a factor apart from their religion. They do have a Catholic background, due to their colonizers, as you point out. But what if not? Would there even be all these Mexican Indian invaders today, or would they have died out like the North American Indians mostly did? Very, very interesting. I never thought about it before, and it is a huge question.

Depends on what you mean by “American.” Seriously. The definition has been changing over the years.
