It sounds better in Spanish: Prohíben los toros… Para traernos los moros. They ban the bulls to bring us the Moors [Muslims].

There have been quite a few news reports about the demise of bull-fighting in Catalonia. So far I haven't seen any that mentioned the proposals to build a mosque on the site of the soon-to-be-unused bullfighting ring in Barcelona, known as La Monumental. If the plans came to fruition, this would be the third-largest mosque in the world, featuring the tallest minaret in the world. It's worth noting that this would be less than 500 metres from the Sagrada Familia, one of the most famous churches in the world. No doubt the minaret is intended to overshadow it in a typical Islamic supremacist gesture. For more details of the mosque proposals, see here.

As the last bullfighting event took place there on Saturday, members of the anti-immigration, anti-Islam PxC (Plataforma per Catalunya) party handed out leaflets protesting about the plans for the mosque. The party's leader, Josep Anglada, is seen in the photograph below, wearing the black jacket.

Maybe it's the ByeBye Mosque flash game. I'll take it out.
