Catalonia has 7.5 million inhabitants, including an estimated 450,000 Muslims, who account for 6% of the total Catalan population. In some Catalan towns and cities, the Muslim population now reaches up to 40% of the population.
Today, however, Catalonia not only has the highest Muslim population in Spain, it is also one of the most Islamized regions of the country. (See here for a 45-minute documentary about the Islamization of Catalonia.)
In an effort to promote Catalan nationalism and the Catalan language, Catalonian pro-independence parties have deliberately promoted immigration from Arabic-speaking Muslim countries for more than three decades, in the belief that these immigrants (unlike those from Latin America) would learn the Catalan language rather than speak Spanish.
The thing with Islamic incursion is that they’ve known all the tricks since the incursion into Spain way back when and it’s been well documented. The move to ‘gerrymander’ so to speak, to create a mini-nation within a nation where their proportion is much higher overall, especially in towns, is to get that population over 10%, which is the point at which they generally go on the offensive.
The violence was pretty bad, supposedly – the press were given all the shots of police brutality and the Spanish government and courts do seem dumb but that’s not to say this independence should be given in this case, say we who are all for our own independence.
In our case, Brexit will hardly alter it seeing as many of the monsters are own homegrown variety in London and Scotland – they’ll still wreak their havoc but within the isles now, rather than on the continent as well.
