Islam and War Spain 1491 A.D.

Islam and War Spain 1491 A.D.

For the loss of Zahara of which you write us, we have deep anger and grief for the Christian’s who died there! For although the fortress and the city may be recovered, as we hope in God that they may be recovered soon, the death of the Christian’s cannot be remedied. But let this be clear; we intend to make war upon the Moors (Muslims) throughout the land, and in such a way that we hope in God that we may not only quickly recover this city which we have lost, but gain others so that our Lord may be served and His Holy Faith exalted, and that we may render Him great service! Queen Isabella of Spain 1491 A.D.
