    Spain has no reason to apologise for freeing herself from Islamic jihadist rule

    Spain has no reason to apologise for freeing herself from Islamic jihadist rule



    Another wimpish demand for a Western "apology" for long-past historic events, abetted as usual by le trahison des clercs - the insatiable appetite of modern soi-disants intellectuals to disparage their own civilisation and grovel to others. This time, Spanish writers are demanding that their government should apologise to Moors for King Philip III's expulsion of the Moriscos (Islamic "converts" resident in Spain) from the kingdom in 1609. The claim is they were so badly treated in the process that "hundreds" died.
    In case the virulently anti-Hispanic prime minister who afflicts Spain at present - José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, recently dismissed by Nicolas Sarkozy as "dim" - should be tempted to indulge in any such masochistic exercise, how about taking it chronologically? Let's start with the massive Islamic invasion of Spain by Arabs, Syrians and Berbers in 711, which conquered the entire country by exemplary brutality within five years. Would Morocco like to start the ball rolling by apologising to Spain for that?
    Then there was the little incident at the Battle of Tours on October 10, 732 when Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, governor-general of al-Andalus, the Muslim kingdom of Spain, was finally stopped in his tracks by Charles Martel, 12 miles north of Poitiers - not what you would call a traditionally Islamic area. The signs are these chaps were not going to stop even at the Watford Gap, unless somebody took drastic action. How about an apology to France for that incursion?
    It took the Christians of Spain 800 years to recover their country in the bloody and relentless campaign known as the Reconquista, completed only with the fall of Granada in 1492. During those centuries, along with such atrocities as salting dissidents' decapitated heads as trophies for the Caliph, the Mediterranean populations were dragged in their hundreds of thousands to the slave markets of North Africa. Any apologies on offer?
    Today, Osama bin Laden is urging Muslims from North Africa to migrate to Spain in the largest possible numbers to re-establish the Islamic state of al-Andalus. This campaign is boosted by tales of Moroccans who still hold the keys to houses in Granada, as well as by the fatuity of Spanish and other Western "intellectuals" afflicted with a masochistic, "my country/religion/civilisation always wrong" mentality. Historical apologies were an absurdity made fashionable in the 1990s; it is time to forget about such nonsense.

    The simple sake of suggesting that there could be a reason to apologize is a mistake in itself.
    Another example of Zapatero´s lack of common sense and idleness.

    I definitely can't understand why is so fashionable lately, in the empowered liberal / progressist circles all over, to apologize for suposed crimes against humanity of 300, 400 and 500 years ago... as if that obnoxious expression meant anything whatsoever before the Nürnberg Trials - not that it means much right now, at least for the crimes perpetrated by the winners of war conficts.

    And just to whom is the government of Spain suposed to apologize for the expulsion of the moriscos of 1609? To the alahuit king and his government, that have a lot to complain of that event of 500 years ago, no doubt...

    ... or perhaps the true intentions of the Government led by Zapatero is to find a list of fabricated reasons to induce the spaniards to accept that giving up Ceuta and Melilla is the only posible way of compensating some moors for something that other completly diferent moors sufered at the hands of spaniards that lived five-hundred years ago...

    This is the root of the problem. These apologists are driven by one thing only: an immense degree of self-hate. They will invent any reason and look for any pretext, no matter how idiotic, to denigrate their own culture and put foreign ones on a pedestal.

    Maybe the Moors should apologize for attacking Spain? An interesting idea...
