Adiós Mohammed

Spain suffered grievously from North African invasion and occupation. Much of Spain was occupied by the North Africans from the times of the first invasions in 711AD until the Moors were finally expelled in 1614.

Should you visit Spain’s Mediterranean coastlines, every few kilometres you will discover watch towers overlooking the sea. These were built and maintained over the centuries. From these turrets and towers approaching fleets of slave-hunting Moorish marauders could be seen. This would hopefully give local villagers time to flee and hide.

The Iberian Peninsula is situated directly opposite North Africa’s coastlines. Due to Spain’s geographical proximity to North Africa, the peninsula’s luckless inhabitants suffered nearly 1,000 years of Arab occupation and slavery. Spain never forgets; throughout the year, and every year, colourful celebrations mark the Christians’ defeat and expulsion of the North African Moors.

Perhaps it is for this reason that Spain is far less accommodating to a repeat performance than is Germany and Scandinavia. During 2015 Spain recorded a 10-fold increase in threats and attacks on Arabs and Muslim institutions; mosques are constantly targeted. A total of 534 anti-Islam attacks were recorded by Spanish monitors. Recently, following the Arab-inspired terrorist attacks in Brussels, ethnic European activists attacked a mosque in Madrid.

Claiming responsibility, Hogar Social Madrid (Madrid Social Home) posted photos on social media of their lighting flares in the vicinity of the Arab religious and cultural centre.

Spanish protesters gathered at the Omar Mosque in Madrid. Fearing Muslim terror attacks in Spain, many protesters placards carried the slogan, ‘Today Brussels Tomorrow Madrid’. In another incident a man was arrested in Parla, a suburb of Madrid on suspicion of throwing red paint, symbolic of blood.

During the previous year there were only 48 such attacks. The attacks are thought to be acts of revenge. It is claimed that ISIS and Muslim-related attacks elsewhere result in a spike in such incidents in Spain.

Spanish police say they have so far identified fourteen national defence activists seen in the vicinity of the M30 mosque at the time of the attack. As our report is filed Spanish police are analysing data to see if any of the fourteen can be charged with what are described as ‘hate crimes’.
