How come there were so many invasions of Muslims to Europe, where they enslaved and raped the populace, but so little invasions of Europe to Africa and the Middle East?
Because the Western Kingdoms had very little interest in such invasions, apart from the Holy Land because the Pope promised goods.
It was the Byzantines that should've done something about it, but they were complete idiots. Still are, we just call them Greeks now.
Europeans favorite past time was fighting among themelves
While Muslims were spread among a way bigger land so the fights among themselves while normal, had a lesser impact in their future alliances.
But also, that's a really shitty image.
>so little invasions of Europe to Africa and the Middle East?
>All these years of slavery, colonialism and imperialism
Truly an American level of ignorance. Canada is oficially imbecile country now.
He does have a point. Apart from top management administration, almost every single muslim living in Iberia was already of Iberian ancestry.
It still was a continuous war against Berber administrators, though.
This one says explicitly "NW African" though and has Iberia range between 3-8%
I thought there was no migration over the strait of Gibraltar in ancient times? So mustn't it have come with the Moors?
Not pro muzzy but >>53886436 is right.
cherry-picked as fuck. And most of this Muslim shit was against other Muslims. Show northern Europe. Show the 100 year war. Show South America.
>I thought there was no migration over the strait of Gibraltar in ancient times?
Says who? Northwestern iberians even had trade with the British Isles during the neolithic.
>So mustn't it have come with the Moors?
Again, explain why is Asturias and Cantabria more african than Granada when they were never under islamic rule.
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bait to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
That map fails to show the christian conquest of pagan europe, and the christian conquest of themselves during the 30 year war (lol)
Of course it says "NW African", that's literally just the name they gave it. Doesn't mean shit.
And there was, though. Archaeologists have a very clear culture pattern going on in Southern Iberia and Northwestern Africa in the Stone Age called the Iberomaurusian culture. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iberomaurusian

>Implying it wasn't just about power with confession only used for brainwashing the dumb peasants into dying on the battlefields for their overlords
Well maybe there's something to it, hard to asses which percentage from your NWA DNA comes from ancient times and which one is younger, but I refuse to believe you literally killed ALL of them during reconquista, I mean not even the Swabians were completely killed (there's some tiny amount of DNA left from them)
>but I refuse to believe you literally killed ALL of them during reconquista, I mean not even the Swabians were completely killed (there's some tiny amount of DNA left from them)
They weren't killed, they were simply expelled. Even the Iberian muslims, which is why some Berbers these days literally look like us.
Well sure, but Mehmet conquered a weakened Constantinople. There is no denying that the 4th crusade permanently crippeled Byzantium.
Whetever the incompetents in Byzantium could have quelled the rising threat of the Muslims had they not been pillaged, I don't know.
>but I refuse to believe you literally killed ALL of them during reconquista
They were little in number and many berbers went back to Morocco after the conquest because they were given shitty lands. After 200 years almost all the iberian christians converted to islam. Again, check the fucking map, the west-east gradient doesn't make any sense if you believe all the african blood came from the berbers. The only one that makes sense is the southwestern asian admixture and even in that case could have come from the phoenicians, including the punics. Or even maybe Tartessos was originally founded by people the Middle East instead of an autoctonous culture.
The Ottomans would have gotten it either way, but the Fourth crusade and the following civil wars helped a lot.
That plague was almost an entire millennium before the fall of Constantinople, and even after the Arabs kicked some Byzantine ass, they actually fought back and even had a period where they gained the upper hand during the Macedonian dynasty.
The Seljuqs actually did some serious damage to the Byzantines, after Manzikert the Byzantines were basically doomed in my opinion
It's not that we killed them,it's what came next,they got segregated after forcefully converted(they had 3 choices:convert,die,run),they were called new christians and were labelled that way so people wouldn't marry them or just to be aware.
Then the inquisitions came and fucked everything...
