    Traditionalists are furious after it emerged that one of the “Three Wise Men” in the January 5th Epiphany parade would in fact be played by a drag queen. The January 5th Three Kings parades are a highlight of Spain's busy Christmas calendar and see the Three Wise Men, or Magi, parade through cities, towns and villages throughout the country distributing sweets to children. Once upon a time, the roles of “Los Reyes Magos” were played by local councillors, one of whom traditionally “blacked up” for the part of Balthazar. But in recent years, and since the arrival of a left-leaning...

    The parallels to the political situation are beautiful, regardless of whether Catalonians are exactly the culture we love. Messi - small and humble, always smiling or concentrating, at one with life. Ronaldo - always whiny, petulant, feminine-metrosexual, narcissistic, rigid. If I ever have kids, may they be like Messi and not Ronaldo. Barcelona won this morning 3 - 0. Sweet!

    The president of Catolonia has now taken back his illegal declaration of independence. If he didn't, he would have been arrested or the government would have sent in the national guard. Anyway, now he wants to negotiate over the next two weeks. Here in Madrid, everyone is annoyed with Catalan, there are Spanish flags hanging everywhere which mean that they want unity. Most people here think Catalan is acting very stupid. I don't usually contribute my opinion about it because I don't know enough about the history. But my roommate sais that Catalan is not perfect, they are not innocent...

    The White House has been examining a proposal by James Baker to launch a Middle East peace effort without Israel. The peace effort would begin with a U.S.-organized conference, dubbed Madrid-2, and contain such U.S. adversaries as Iran and Syria. Officials said Madrid-2 would be promoted as a forum to discuss Iraq's future, but actually focus on Arab demands for Israel to withdraw from territories captured in the 1967 war. They said Israel would not be invited to the conference. “As Baker sees this, the conference would provide a unique opportunity for the United States to strike a deal without...

    Footage captured a Spanish aircraft flying nail-bitingly close to cars as it came into land at Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaría airport on Sunday. The video, taken by Carlos Rojas and uploaded onto Youtube, shows Iberia flight 6313 from Madrid coming into land at the Central American country's airport. But as the Airbus A 340 approaches landing it appears to come dangerously close to cars parked at the end of the runway and misses the airport perimeter fence by just a few meters. The landing provoked a flurry of comments on social media from local residents about the “narrowly averted disaster”...

    Anti-Israel boycott movement’s ‘victory’ in Valencia music festival casts pall on historic citizenship law The Spanish government passed a headline-grabbing law on June 11 bestowing Spanish citizenship upon descendants of Sephardic Jews. The high-profile effort, lauded as a historic measure “correcting” sins from a 500-year past, is set to be implemented by October and is expected to potentially draw some 90,000 applicants.

    FULL TITLE: Left-wing mayor of Madrid plans to rename Plaza currently dedicated to Margaret Thatcher after Socialist gay rights activist Spain's Left-wing Mayor has said she is planning to rename a Plaza currently dedicated to Margaret Thatcher after a former Socialist Party leader and gay rights activist. Manuela Carmena, who took over from Madrid's former conservative mayor in May, said Thatcher's name was inappropriate because she was 'the Iron Lady who enslaved the workers'. Her announcement comes just ten months after Mark Thatcher was invited to the Spanish capital to name the plaza after his mother and the former British...

    A large international conference of Holocaust deniers recently took place in the heart of London, Britain's Daily Mail reported on Saturday. "This is the biggest and most significant meeting of Holocaust deniers that Britain has ever seen. It is a very worrying development," the paper quoted Gerry Gable, an expert on the extreme Right who aided the news outlet's undercover investigation of the event, as saying. The event was held under a veil of secrecy at London's Grosvenor Hotel in a room draped with the Union Flag. A spokesman for the hotel said the room booking was made online and...

    'Forensic scientists say they have found the tomb of Spain's much-loved giant of literature, Miguel de Cervantes, nearly 400 years after his death. They believe they have found the bones of Cervantes, his wife and others recorded as buried with him in Madrid's Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians. Separating and identifying his badly damaged bones from the other fragments will be difficult, researchers say. The Don Quixote author was buried in 1616 but his coffin was later lost. When the convent was rebuilt late in the 17th Century, his remains were moved into the new building and it has taken...

Feigning an intent to attack an area other than the actual target, for when the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wanted to attack one area, he would give his army the impression they were going to attack another. “If a man’s chest is too narrow to hold his own secret, then the chest of the one with whom he stores the secret is even narrower” [Poetry].
