I have just read a very interesting and profoundly significant book by Dario Fernandez-Morera, the Associate Professor at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese in North Western University. The book is called “The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise – Muslims, Christians and Jews under Islamic Rule in Medieval Spain”. The book has been very thoroughly researched and, for the academically minded, has nearly 100 pages of closely typed footnotes providing sources and evidence for every assertion.

The reason such detailed research is required is because the effect of the book is to explode the unhistorical Leftist theory that has been put forward by academics, politicians and media commentators that Islamic Spain or Al-Andalus was a “multi-culturalist” and “Diverse” paradise.

In fact as Professor Fernandez-Morera shows in comprehensive detail, the written sources, whether they be Islamic or Christian or Jewish, are all agreed there was nothing more or less than the typical Islamist tyranny with widespread executions and discriminatory legal rules suppressing, in particular, Christians.

The current political importance of this research is that it means that those Leftists advocating “multi-culturalism” are now left with no Islamic example in history where “multi-culturalism” and “diversity” has worked nicely, instead what we are left with is very many examples where multi-culturalism has led either to civil war or the need for a ruthless tyranny to put down the dissident elements within the area controlled by that State.

It should however be remembered that “multi-culturalism” has been adopted or fostered by most Empires throughout history. In the case of the British Empire it is worth remembering its record of applying the ancient Roman imperial formula of “Divide and Rule” (“divide et impera”). 

I wrote about that, as regards Malaya, in this article >>> THE IMPERIALISTIC ROOTS OF MULTI-CULTURALISM

Within pre-First World War Europe the key example of a multi-culturalist state was the Austro-Hungarian Empire with its detailed rules on the entitlements of the various ethnic groups within that Empire.

When reading Professor Fernandez-Morera’s book I often wondered about the motivation of the various historians who are quoted telling the most outrageous lies about what life was like in Al-Andalus.

It would be very interesting to know whether their remarks are a product of both sloppy research and of simply going with the least line of resistance in following those others who have made similar remarks, or whether they have a specific purpose in distorting the history to make out that Islamic Spain was ruled justly and thus to ignore the sufferings and oppression of the subjugated Christians.

Given that academics do not mislead in the same way in writing about other parts of the world, such as when Christians subjugated others in more modern Colonial history, it seems to me to be far more likely that the misleading about Medieval Islamic Span has been done deliberately and has been done to specifically advance the multi-culturalist political project with an eye to undermining our own culture and civilisation.

Do read it for yourself and see what you think!

  1. Revisionists on the Left are busily promoting the myth about Moorish Spain and denigrating Ferdinand and Isabella for bringing it to an end. In the march in Barcelona after the terror attack, I noticed a placard reading "No a la islamophobia". I wonder what Ferdie and Bella would have made of that? And I was surprised to learn from Alex Jones on Infowars that the Moors were involved in the mass trafficking of native Spanish women to places as far afield as Indonesia as sex slaves. That doesn't sound very enlightened to me. And they are still at it with the Yazedi women. There was a debate on the parliament channel the other day about the fact that Christians - according to Angela Merkel who seems to want to bring in Muslims to continue it - are the most persecuted religious community in the world. They are persecuted by Hindus in India and the Chinese government but they are persecuted mostly by the Islamic Republic of Iran and all their fellow Muslims. But we must not, according to the Left, be nasty to the Muslims. The start of the Notting Hill Carnival was marked by interfaith prayers for the victims of Grenfell Tower with dotty Christian clerics no doubt thinking it was super. Sadiq Khan said the Carnival represented the marvel that is multicultural London. Contradict him at your peril. Marxism controls the narrative now and will brook no dissent. So stop that talk of the ethnic cleansing of the English from our erstwhile capital right now! or you will suffer the consequences! No London is no longer English but that is a price worth paying for the multicultural dream.
