Dr. Pipes

Yes Muslims want to invade Spain again.

They also want to invade روما or Roma aka Rome because Muhammad said so but when you dig in deeper to get to know is this روما in Italy? you will get the answer from those that know that this روما is really the capital of the Quranic الروم or al-Ruum and this word really means the Greeks and Sura 30 in the Qur'an is really called Suart al-Ruum or سورة الروم but when one mentions that the capital of the Quranic Ruum is really القسطنطينية or al-Qustantinyya or Constantinople you will get the "Huh?" this is القسطنطينية that Muhammad was talking about and most of them have no clue

But again when you remind Muslims that Rome and Constantinople are two different cities you will get the silly answer that Roma is really Constantinople ب التقريب or close enough

And when reminded that the Turks are already occupying Constantinople you will only get a stare

This is a case of what Egyptians call in Egyptian Arabic كولو عند العرب صبون or everything for the Arabs is soap which means they have no clue

I can only tell them: Dream on
