Not good, at all…
The Catalan Caliphate
By Thomas Eppinger
The attackers of Barcelona and Cambrils murdered at least 16 people – a 51-year old German succumbed to her injuries last week. Nothing is known about her identity. German victims seldom have names. 24 victims are still treated in hospitals, 5 of them are in critical condition.
It is hardly a coincidence that the gravest attack in Spain, since Madrid 2004, was carried out in the Catalan capital. Catalonia is a stronghold of political Islam, and for one single reason:
Because the Catalan separatists have extremely pushed the immigration of Muslims from Marocco and Pakistan over the last 30 years.
The central person of the Catalan independence movement is Jordi Pujol, from 1980 to 2003 president of the Generalitat de Catalunya, in other words the governor of Catalonia, and until 2003 the chair of the Party Convergència i Unió (CiU). There are a number of court cases ongoing against him and his 7 children for money laundering and corruption in the billions. The Catalan Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya (CDC), an alliance of Pujol’s CiU and the christian-democratic Unió Democràtica de Catalunya (UDC) was, from 1979 to 2003, in power without interruption.
During this whole time, the CDC pocketed 3% of the contracts they awarded from the companies that got the contract. Alone the Pujol clan moved at least 31 million Euro in cash over the past years to black accounts in Andorra.
Pujol made his fortune with corruption, but his greatest worry was the low birth rate in Catalonia. The shrinkage of „real“ Catalans was impossible to compensate for with immigrants from Murcia and Andalusia. When the economy started to flourish in the 1990s, the separatists worried that the new jobs would be taken by hundreds of thousands of Hispano-Americans. They thought that, as the Spanish-speaking Hispanics did not speak Catalan, they therefore would further the assimilation of the Catalan culture into the Spanish culture.
So a few particularly bright heads got the idea to bring predominantly Muslims from Morocco and Pakistan into the Country – if they need to learn a new language anyway, the government could make them learn Catalan.
