Follow Up To Superpower and Caliphate Post

In that post I mentioned that Black Agenda Report got it wrong when they stated that ISIS (or ISIL) was "Anti-Imperialist". I noted that while they may be anti "western" imperialism, they are themselves quote imperialist in nature. Here is a nice recent example:
'We’ll take back Spain': ISIS fighters vow to seize 'occupied lands'
From the Russia Times:
he minute-long footage shows them speaking in Spanish, and saying that ISIS will take over Spain.

“I tell you, Spain is the land of our forefathers, and, Allah willing, we are going to liberate it, with the might of Allah,” says one of the men. He adds that the group won’t stop at Spain and intends to spread its Islamic Caliphate across the world.

So much for "anti-imperialist". I like many black folks used to like to talk about the Golden Age of the Moor, but it took me a while to realize that what I was in fact in awe of European colonization. If colonization is wrong then colonization is wrong. Spain belongs to the natives of that land, not some folks from the Middle East or North Africa.
