 The Impact of Colonialism

As noted above, Alfonso held out to the Moorish kings the rope with which they hanged themselves, intimidating them with his military might, demanding tribute, and using one group to strike at the others.

In the days of Andalusia, although the military defeat and expulsion were certainly a heavy loss, at least the Muslims had a great civilization. The grave scandal of our times is the total retreat and debacle in the face of the West’s cultural, economic, and military invasion.
