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.

A Walk Thru Old Jaffa

This video is amazing.

The song is Geografia, by La Oreja de Van Gogh (Van Gogh’s Ear)

The words to the song are amazing and can be found: (Click Here)

Who says the Mideast and Latins do not go together.

That being said: La Oreja de Van Gogh (Van Gogh’s Ear) is a Basque band from the north of Spain.

The person who matched the video to the music was amazing. Perfect song!

The Expulsion of the Moors

From: When the Moors Ruled in Europe

Spain kicked the governing Moors out of Spain in 1492, but allowed some Muslims to remain. Over time, the religious rights of the remaining Moors were restricted.

By 1609, the Moors (Moriscos in Spanish) were ordered to be totally expelled from Spain. It took about 5 years to complete.

Why is this important?

We know that many of these Moriscos went to Latin America. The early colonial records speak of Moors in Spain. There is evidence that the guachos might own part of their culture and dress to the Morisos.

I put this in as a reference point. Latin and Arab culture are different – certainly in religion – but not as different as one would think.
