Convivencia versus the Cult of Death

Via Hak Mao, here is the first post-Madrid article we’ve seen that even mentions Ceuta and Melilla, in the course of explaining what we’d wrongly hoped was bloody obvious: that Al Qaeda are much less concerned about election results, or other such merely secular and transient matters, than about the “recovery” of al-Andalus (Iberia) for (horrible irony) a fanatical cult that nobody in medieval al-Andalus would have recognised as Islamic. Read the whole thing, especially if you’ve never heard of Ceuta and Melilla, and/or want to know more about al-Andalus, the land that gave the world the still not fully realised vision of convivencia.
