The left-wing Catalan nationalist party ERC recently held an event in Barcelona. During the discussion, one of the speakers proclaimed: "We'd rather be poor than Spanish." Another then added:
"Or Muslim. We'd rather be Muslim than Spanish."

This was greeted with applause. The many North Africans present were happy to join in.

Isn't that how Spain was conquered the first time?

King Rodrigo of Spain married the daughter of one of his noblemen, Count Julian against the wishes of her father. To avenge what Julian perceived as his violated honor, he opened secret parleys with the enemy and invited with the Emir (Governor) Musa ibn Nusayr, the Muslim ruler of North Africa, who was based in Tunisia to invade Spain. The Caliph al-Walid authorized the invasion of Spain (710-711 AD), on condition that Count Julian recited the Shahada and embraced Islam

So the story goes. But there is an alternative account.

Is there a difference between Islam and Insanity?

I am a catalan nationalist and I, like many others, fiercly oppose islam. This article seems to try to discredit catalan nationalism as a whole, and this is absolute non-sense. Every country has its bastards. Please, do not embrace spanish imperialist views (at least not without some critical review).
Thank you.

I am not against Catalan nationalism as a whole. I recognise that not all Catalan nationalists are like that. If you look around the site, you will see that I have made many favourable posts about the PxC.

Pay no heed to those who whisper lies in your ear, and do not succumb to the deceitful intoxication of Catalan nationalism (Marxist-Leninist group)

And PxC It is not a nationalist party.

The poor Josep Trinxeira just realised why intolerance and ethnic hate is wrong. Today you hate the muslims, tomorrow the black, the gay, the nationalist, the feminist, etc., etc., etc. It never ends.
