The Spanish began their conquest of the Canaries in the early on 1400s and systematically began to wipe out the local populace. Their main objective was the extermination of the local male populace, while using the local females for interbreeding.

This is incredible, but true. The indifferent behaviour and money-centred reaction of the Spanish minister is a reminder that the Western ideology can be cold, infernal and interested primarily in exploitation and turn a profit.

What rules the being of the Spanish minister is the lots of money that can be made in selling the unfolding disaster equally a perfect tourist bundle. Although a member of the Spanish Socialist Party, she is blind to the loss and sorrow of the victims of the volcano who are her fellow Spaniards.

She is besides unperturbed by the unfolding ecology disaster, including the fact that the eruption and lava would change the geographic shape of La Palma and its environs. It is an eruption, which registered over  22,000 tremors in one week!

But so yous know that Maroto’s mindset is institutional, her boss, Prime number Minister Pedro Sanchez, visited La Palma this week. While promising a €206 million ($239 meg) aid, he urged tourists the world over to come up and watch the unfolding tragedy: “I would like to allow tourists know that this is a safe identify, they tin come and relish the isle.” Campaigning that people should “come and enjoy” a disaster? What actually is left of our humanity?

This was the same mindset that led their forefathers to exterminate the ethnic African population and turn the islands into a white enclave. Once on a trip to Spain, the then Iberian Airlines, which took me from Lagos, had a stop-over at the Canary Islands, and I told myself, “wait a infinitesimal; we just left Lagos!”

That was when I realised that rather than being Spanish, the Canary Islands are actually in West Africa! They are merely 587 kilometres from Western Sahara and 992 kilometres from the West African country of Islamic republic of mauritania, while purple Spain that lays claims to the islands is 2,016.7 kilometres away!

In fact, the West African country of Greatcoat Verde is farther than the Canary Islands! Where the islands are 587  kilometres from Western Sahara, Republic of cape verde is i,358 kilometres away.

The Spanish began their conquest of the Canaries in the early 1400s and systematically began to wipe out the local populace. Their main objective was the extermination of the local male populace, while using the local females for interbreeding.

What the Spaniads did in the Canaries to the indigenous populace by well-nigh exterminating them and seizing the lands, is the aforementioned thing U.k. did in Australia, and the white migrants to the indigenous Indian population in the United States.

Simply partial Canarian customs and traditions like the whistle linguistic communication (Silbo) still survive. The main Canarian language, Guanche of the pre-colonial era, became extinct in the 17th Century.

What the Spaniads did in the Canaries to the indigenous populace by virtually exterminating them and seizing the lands, is the same thing United kingdom of great britain and northern ireland did in Australia, and the white migrants to the indigenous Indian population in the United States.

That was what the whites tried to practise in Kenya, People’s democratic republic of algeria, Zimbabwe and Namibia. The method adopted was the same; white colonialists seize a territory and endeavor to exterminate the local population.

There are other African territories the Spanish seized and continue to occupy. There are iii of them that are Moroccan. These are Ceuta, which a mere 8 kilometres from Morocco; Penon de Valez de la Gomera, which is 75 kilomtres; and Melilla, which is x.5 kilometres from Morocco.

While holding on to Moroccan lands, the Spaniards effort to ransom the Moroccans with other peoples’ lands. When the Castilian colonialists formally left Western Sahara on February 26, 1976, rather than let the Sahrawi independence like other colonies, they gave the state to Morocco as a sort of propitiation.

So, rather than challenge the Spaniards for their lands, the Moroccans are trying to agree on to Western Sahara. Both countries likewise go along to collaborate in this unholy project. For example, when Morocco “expelled” the Sahrawi patriot, Aminatu Haida from her country on November 13, 2009, she was taken to the Canary Islands where the Castilian tried to prevent her from leaving the islands.

There may be no hope of Africa taking back her territories, particularly when the local populace have been wiped out, but our memories must not be wiped make clean. As humans, we must empathise with the residents of the Canary Islands in this their time of grief, but that is non to say nosotros should forget that these islands, fifty-fifty if owned by Spain, are African.
