Opinions about Granada
They weren't Arabs
They weren't Arabs, but Moors who were in fact African. Africans built Granada. Its in your history books and all over your museums. Moors were black.
Arab rather then Islamic or muslims
Why is everything described as Arab rather then Islamic or muslims? There weren't only Arabs living in the region at the time, there were a considerable amount of Amazighs or Berber (as some people call them) who lived in the region who had contributed to much of the art and culture as well as the Arabs.
I would suggest amazighs as Berber is very easiest term and insulting. I'm Arab and I don't use this term and try to discourage everyone from using it. They are amazighs tribes and lived and conquered Iberian peninsula along with arabs.
