Reader comment on: Muslims Angry Over Spanish Citizenship for Jews
Submitted by Zagreus (Germany), Dec 22, 2012 03:49
It's really sweet:
"Al-Ahmar wants the Spanish monarch to apologize 'on behalf of his ancestors' and to assume 'responsibility for the consequences' that this would entail. He says it is necessary "to identify criminals, to convict retroactively, while at the same time to identify and compensate victims for their calamities and restore their titles."
And in which way did the Moslems come to Spain or in most other places, like to Nord-Africa: In the way of peace or as conquerer with swords and fire in their hands? How many of them did they kill and destroy on their ways of 'colonizations?' And how many former Spanyards and other Europeans were caught as slaves in the endless raids since the Middle Ages till the 17 century?
If we speak about the crimes of ancestors, then we will speak of all crimes of the ancestors of both sides.
