Egyptian Muslim Protesters Demand End to Spanish Occupation of Spain

To the Israelis, it’s Israel. To the Muslims, it’s Palestine. To the Spanish, it’s Spain. To the Muslim, it’s Occupied Andalusia.
Hundreds of Egyptians demonstrated on Wednesday Jan. 2 in Safenex Square in Cairo to commemorate the 521st anniversary of the fall of Granada.
The demonstration was called by The Free Movement (Harakat Ahrar).
The protesters organized a human chain around the square and held signs that said: “Obligatory return”,”We have not forgotten Al Andalus” and “Of course we will return” …
And they really mean it.
Demonstrator: As we speak, in Islamic Andalusia, in Spain, they are marching to celebrate the fall of the Islamic state of Andalusia, or Spain. While they are celebrating, we here are upset, because the Muslims used to rule in those European countries.
Over there, they are celebrating the fact that they killed Muslims and drove out the Muslims rulers, who ruled them with justice.
By “justice”, they mean “oppression under the code of Islam.”
Demonstrator: We are trying to remind people of the history of Andalusia. It was toppled over 500 years ago by the Spaniards, who are occupying it to this day. We want to remind people that no matter how long the Spanish occupation of Andalusia continues, the day will come, Allah willing, when we liberate it and Islam will return.
The rhetoric is exactly the same as that of the Palestinian Arabs because it’s all the same Islamic imperative of foiled colonialists who are determined to reclaim their empire and their slaves.
In the city of Salt, parents have come to pick up their children from school. Muslims already make up 40 percent of city residents and will soon be the majority.
A Pew survey found that 7 out of 10 Muslims in Spain think of themselves as Muslim rather than Spaniards.
Lleida, which is about one-quarter Muslim, was the first Spanish city to ban the burqa. Then the mayor shut down the city’s mosque because it was overflowing with Friday worshippers.
Meanwhile, the Muslim birthrate is at least twice the native birthrate, and the number of Muslims has increased tenfold in the last 20 years.
“The greatest threat for Spain, Catalonia, and Europe is Muslim immigration,” Anglada told CBN News.
“We know they are coming here to conquer what, according to Muslims, used to belong to them,” he said. “We have a moral duty so that in the future they can say that at least there was someone, one party, that was not willing to surrender the West to Islamization.”
