New route to the West?

Reader comment on item: [West Africa:] New Route to the West

Submitted by Ed Gordon (Israel), Jun 3, 2006 at 02:02

Spain should definitely worry about influxes of Muslims! Any student of history knows that before being driven out in the late 1400's at least a third of Spain WAS MUSLIM! Going to cities like Seville, Granada, Cordoba, etc., is almost like a trip back back in time with Moorish architecture everywhere. Any apparently, the "Moors" want it back!

Immigrant groups, whether Muslim or not, are trying to escape the poverty and nowhereville future of their countries of origin - especially Sub-Sahara ones like Sudan, Moritania and Chad. And as severe famine caused by global warming drives these people to seek their fortunes in Europe, that continent's demographic face will change even more. Even Spain is seeing a severe drop in birth rates as more and more people opt out to not marry or are practicing birth control. Their numbers are being replaced by Muslims and others who have large families.

That's what's in store, and the Muzziahs will one day call the faithful to prayer again in Spanish mosques as they did during their 'Golden Age' there.
