Hundreds of posters are said to have been distributed over Spain encouraging Muslim men to marry Christian women in order to strengthen the religion. The posters are reported to urge Muslim men to 'teach them that Islam is the true religion.' The posters are said to have appeared all over the town of El Raval in Spain which is a neighbourhood in the Ciut at Vella district of Barcelona. An area well known to be inhabited with nationalities from South America, Pakistan, the Philippines and Romania. According to Breitbart, the poster reads as follows:
"It is permissible and encouraged that the Muslim man marries honest and chaste women who belong to the People of the Book. Even though they have distorted and altered the tradition, they are still suitable for marriage," the poster reads, which translated the poster's content into English from the original report in the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta.
"Brother, enter a partnership with a Spaniard, teach her that Islam is the true religion," the poster adds. "Islamic law dictates that the fruits of this alliance will follow Islam, which will further strengthen our community."
The area of El Raval is said to be a key target for Muslim groups who say that Islam has a 'right to return to Spain' because of its Islamic history. Posters also invite members of the community to an 'information meeting' to be held at a Arabic restuarant.
Between 711 and 1492, Islamic Spain, or Al-Andalus, was a multi-cultural mix of Muslims, Christians and Jews, though with restrictions.
Currently, about four percent of Spain's population is Muslim, more than half of which are immigrants. Some jihadist groups have been calling for a re-establishment of Islamic rule in Al-Andalus.
