Irony of Irony. Guadalajara is named after a Spanish city of Guadalajara. The name comes from an Arab word, (Wadi hijara) which means River of Stones.

Apparently, the Spanish and the Mexicans have forgotten that it took their own Christians 781 years to free themselves from the Muslims.

I find it fascinating that they embrace Arab culture so fully.

Arab dance is much bigger in the Latin World than in the USA.

Spain’s Leena Qadi


Posted on YouTube: August 15, 2015

LEENA QADI seems to hail from Spain, though I cannot be sure. In any event, Spain is Latin.

Arab culture has penetrated far more into Latin Culture than in other parts of Europe. Understandably, due to the Moorish Occupation of Spain (711 – 1492 AD)

She got a write-up in WebIslam.
