But if to think that Spain is Spain thanks to the Muslims makes you happy, here we leave it

No problem
But Spain is Spain thanks to Catholic Kings from the 1400's.


You said somewhere that Spain doesnt have that many Arabic words, yet you use at least one every day of the week.

Many historians feel that "Hola" is a bastardization of the word "Allah" and is part of a long lost greeting among Iberian Moors, not to mention the word Andalucia, or Al Andalus in Arabic.


Lets look at words like aceite, a Spanish word surely, well you may think so, but when we look at the Arabic for oil, az-zeit, we start to question it don't we?

Even the word Hasta, when we look at the Arabic word for "until", hatta, they sound VERY similar don't they?

Yes, are there muslim swords, roman words, greek words, something of english words... which is the problem? In English there are many words that are Latin pure; many tribes of Indians from North America (that today is United States) do they use some words in Spanish, due to the Spanish presence in those territories when they formed of the Spanish crown, even in Philipine also does happen something similar, then which is the problem with the words in Spain? What you want to tell me concretely?

Because I have not denied anything, is you who is inventing the movie

No, I was pointing out the ones that are semi famous around the world.
