Muslim Leader in Spain Wants King to Apologize for Reconquista

Hat tip Vlad Tepes. Translation by Fousesquawk.

"Apologize? We don't think so."

There must be a Spanish word for "chutzpah", but darned if I know what it is. After the new president of Mexico asked Spain for an apology for its conquest of Mexico, a Muslim community leader in the Spanish city of Seville sent a formal written request to the Spanish king asking him to apologize to the Muslim community for the Reconquista (when the Muslim rulers were driven out of Andalusia-Spain).

His name is Yihad Sarasúa, of the Ishbilia mosque in Seville (Sevilla). Here is a translation of the article from La Sexta.

If a few days ago, it was the president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who demanded that King Felipe VI ask for forgiveness for the conquest (by) Spain, now a mosque in Seville is doing the same but for the Reconquista (Reconquest).

The Ishbilia mosque has published a post on Facebook under the name of the Islamic Community itself and its president, Yihad Sarasua, in expressing “the sentiments among Spanish Muslims and those who for certain reasons, reside in Spain, for the lack of conciliation between the Crown and the heirs of the Andalusian legacy.

“Sir, being the King of Spain, I believe that the historical moment has arrived to carry out the recognition of the vileness, plunder, displacement and murders carried out by orders of the Catholic kings and their most direct collaborators, which culminated with the surrender of Granada and the breach of everything subscribed to the Muslim community,” reads the letter.

Besides, he adds that the Muslims were subjected to a “constant persecution” that left “millions of dead”: “Never has existed such a fierce persecution and eagerness to eliminate a religious community, as was carried out by the old Spanish royalty in the times of Felipe II, (an) extermination that culminated in the War of the Alpujarres subsequent to the Pragmatic Sanction of 1567”.
This is why King Felipe VI is asked by the mosque to apologize to his community. “As a descendant of the aforementioned kings, what a formidable opportunity you would have to demonstrate to the Muslim community your respect and your discrepancy, with the Islamic theses, apologizing to our community for so many atrocities and interceding for the recognition of Spanish nationality for the descendants of Al Andalus, as was done with the Sephardic Jewish community."

Fousesquawk comment:

Maybe the Russians should apologize to Germany for driving the Wehrmacht out of the USSR, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary etc.  during World War II. Maybe all the allies should apologize to Germany for driving them out of France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and other countries during WW II. Maybe we should apologize to Great Britain for the American Revolution. We could go on and on with this game. More specifically, however, maybe the entire Muslim world should apologize to Spain for invading and occupying Spain in 711 AD. That occupation and rule lasted 7 centuries until the Reconquista sent them packing.

We should remember that King Ferdinand regained control of Spain in 1492. He agreed to a kind of amnesty for the Moors, provided they maintained peace with the Christian Spanish. However, the Muslims were such a nuisance (persisting in jihad and intolerance)that they were finally driven out in 1567. In short, the Muslims earned the treatment they received. History may repeat itself in the 21st Century as illegal Muslim immigrants to Europe and elsewhere become more and more obnoxious.

Lol, Christ, demographic-wise muslims are growing, while whites are suffering due to white guilt & not reproducing.

Chances of that happening are low. Not to mention Eu is pushing for "euro-Africa."
