Portugal: Muslim Prayers on a Square Named After a Crusader

Martim Moniz Square, Lisbon

Muslims in Lisbon, Portugal celebrated the end of Ramadan this past week by holding an outdoor gathering. The place they chose to do it was Martim Moniz Square named after a famous Christian Crusader who helped overthrow Muslim overlords in Lisbon in 1147. The RAIR Foundation has the story on this and the symbolism behind this choice of location.

Here is a shorter posting from a Portuguese blog, Perspectivas. It is translated by Fousesquawk.

The question from “Poligrafo”: “Do you believe what your lying eyes see, or what I tell you?!”

The image below comes from Ademastor: It shows a comparison between what happened on 13 May, in the sanctuary of Fatima, and on the field of Martim Moniz, in Lisbon.

So we see, we verify on the spot; but according to “Poligrafo”, our eyes are liars.

Now, Dear Reader, imagine that the Catholic Church acquired the habit of systematically occupying, for example, Rossio Square (in Lisbon) for its weekly religious celebrations: We would have the left screaming, and asking the government to send in the shock troops “against the reactionaries”,  But when it concerns the partners of the alliance between Marx and Mohammad, not even “Poligrafo” is inhibited from coming out in their defense.

Allahu Akbar !

Note: The sentence, “Do you believe what your lying eyes seem or what I tell you?” is from Groucho Marx; Portuguese politics transformed it into an anecdote.
