    FULL TITLE: EU votes for total ban on organizations opposed to mass Muslim migration, thought police to be created “The Parliament is concerned by the increasing normalisation of fascism, racism and xenophobia and calls on EU states to ban neo-fascist and neo-Nazi groups.” The problem with this is that the EU labels as “neo-fascist” and “neo-Nazi” all those who oppose their agenda of mass Muslim migration and want to preserve European states as free societies. “MEPs argue, that there is a legal laxity towards ‘right-wing organisations’ in some member states and that this is one of the reasons behind the...
  • Spain Says Vatican to Help with Discreet Reburial of Franco

    MADRID, Spain - The Spanish government said Tuesday that the Vatican has agreed to jointly find ways to prevent the remains of late Spanish dictator Gen. Francisco Franco from being reburied under a central Madrid cathedral after they are exhumed from a glorifying mausoleum. Relatives of Franco want to reinter his embalmed body in a family crypt under Almudena Cathedral if the government delivers on a promise to remove it from the Valley of the Fallen, a self-aggrandizing mausoleum outside of the Spanish capital where he was interred upon his death in 1975 alongside the remains of some 34,000 fighters...

    MADRID (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters gathered outside the Almudena Roman Catholic Cathedral in central Madrid on Thursday to demonstrate against any plans to bury the remains of former dictator Francisco Franco at the site. Families of the tens of thousands of his opponents who were killed or imprisoned during his near four-decade rule oppose his burial at such an emblematic site. Spanish lawmakers voted in September to remove the remains of Franco from a mausoleum where tens of thousands of victims of the 1936-39 civil war that brought him to power are also laid to rest. It is still...

    October 21 is Trafalgar Day, the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and the death of England's greatest naval hero, Admiral Horatio Nelson, on 21 October 1805. Fought off the southwest coast of Spain, Trafalgar was the greatest naval victory of the Napoleonic wars and essentially destroyed the sea power of France in a single engagement. Nelson and the British fleet had been blockading the French and Spanish fleet under Villeneuve in Cadiz after pursuing it to the Caribbean and back. When Villeneuve finally emerged to give battle, Nelson, depending on the superior seamanship and fighting skill of his "band...

    SpanishDict. ^ | Columbus Day | Nicole B.
    In the U.S., today is "Columbus Day". Not much is done to celebrate it, although most schools and government jobs have the day off. It occurred to me that in part, it is due to Spain and Queen Isabella, Christopher Columbus and the discoveries of the New World that has led most of us to even be interested in this site. Just think of how many millions of people speak Spanish now around the world as a result of this discovery. When you think of most of the continent of South America, Central America, Cuba, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic,...
  • Scandals pile pressure on Spain’s Sánchez to call early election

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez faces growing pressure from within his Socialist Party to call an early election, before scandals besetting his four-month-old minority government undermine a surge in voter support. Riding high in the polls, Sánchez aims to serve a full term to mid-2020 as he focuses on approving next year’s budget and countering renewed independence moves in the Catalonia region. But last week, his science minister was forced to deny media reports he cheated on his taxes, days after a recording emerged of the justice minister using a homophobic slur. Two other ministers have already been pushed out,...

    Spain’s foreign minister revealed that US President Donald Trump suggested building a wall along the Sahara desert to stem the arrival of migrants, as he plans to do on the Mexican border. “Closing ports is not a solution, and neither is building a wall along the Sahara like President Trump suggested to me recently,” Josep Borrell told a lunchtime gathering this week, according to a video released by Spanish media. “Just build a wall that borders the Sahara,” he quoted Trump as telling him. “But do you know how big the Sahara is?” the minister responded. He did not give...

    Real Madrid, a Spanish soccer club, on Friday hosted teen terrorist Ahed Tamimi. Tamimi served an eight-month prison sentence for attacking IDF soldiers, and has since said that her goal is to "eliminate Israel." Tamimi met with Emilio Butragueño, a former Real Madrid player. She also received a soccer shirt sporting her name and the number 9. Real Madrid welcomed Palestinian teenage activist Ahed Tamimi to the Santiago Bernabeu yesterday after spending eight months in prison for slapping an Israeli soldier in December 2017," the team tweeted Saturday. Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon tweeted, "The prestigious soccer club of Real...

    Turkey has submitted close to a thousand requests to Germany for search and arrest warrants. Andrej Hunko from Die Linke said Turkey is abusing the Interpol.

Turkey has submitted a total of 848 requests for search and arrest warrants through the Interpol. QUESTION NOT RESPONDED TO Germany’s Ministry of Justice didn’t provide information on what percentage of Turkish requests had been met,...

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Thursday denied allegations he plagiarized his doctoral thesis as he battles a raft of problems in a week that has seen him lose his health minister over similar reports of academic irregularities. “The information appearing in certain media claiming the existence of plagiarism in my doctoral thesis is absolutely FALSE,” Socialist Sánchez tweeted just two days after Carmen Montón quit as health minister amid reports of irregularities in how she obtained her degree. Spanish media said Montón had been awarded grades without attending classes and that her final project contained plagiarized passages — charges...

    DNA samples were obtained from eight early Iberian farmers whose remains were discovered in Spain’s El Portalón cave in Atapuerca. Like populations in central and northern Europe, the Iberian farmers had traveled from the south and mixed with local hunter-gatherer groups. “The genetic variation observed in modern-day Basques is significantly closer to the newly sequenced early farmers than to older Iberian hunter-gatherer samples,” “Parts of that early farmer population probably remained relatively isolated since then (which we can still see in the distinct culture and language of Basques)

    Tomorrow morning I board a flight from Malaga to Santiago de Compostela then, 2 buses later, I arrive in Sarria and immediately start walking 20km to Portomarin. Most people who walk from Sarria to Santiago do it in 5 stages but I will be doing it in 6 so I have more time to sightsee along the way, plus I will have 1 full day in Santiago after I arrive and before my flight back. Weather looks good in the 10 day forecast so it should be a good walk.

    A boat carrying young migrants has landed on a beach in southern Spain, catching holidaymakers by surprise in the second such incident in two days. Video footage shows the boat approaching the shore and at least two dozen people jumping off into the shallows before running across the sand. The migrants, seemingly all young men, dash past beach-goers on their towels as they try to make it off the sands before being caught by authorities.

    I really don’t know how to begin this article, but to ask you to watch this 1 minute video taken on Sunday afternoon by a shocked tourist at La Barrosa beach in Cádiz, Spain. The 54 seconds long video depicts a platoon of sorts, composed presumably of Angela Merkel’s engineers and architects, storming a sunny beach in Spain upon their arrival in a flashy rubber dingy; you know, Spain, a so-called civilized country with a standing army and member of NATO, formerly conquered by Muslim Moors over 1,000 years ago if memory serves. And it’s happening again, but this time...
