At this point, it would be useful to take into account the symbolic significance that the first Summit between an Arab country and the European Union be held in Granada, whose conquest marked the end of Muslim Spain and precisely in the Palace of Carlos V domain monument located in the heart of the Alhambra and that once symbolized the triumph of Christianity over Islam 2. Is not less worthy of taking into account the fact that 20,000 Moroccans come legally to work regularly to Spain each year 3, where there are already established 746,000 living in our country and constitute the second largest, after the Romanian population, while the number of Spaniards living in Morocco is of 6.278. Now that our country is suffering an unprecedented economic crisis, authorities in Morocco have because of thinking that it is time to pour a new pulse to Spain. Hence, the statements of the Prime Minister, Abbas Farsi, constitute a gift poisoned our Government. Open a dialogue on this topic, would mean making sacred it and would eventually turn against Spain, since it would be the beginning of the recognition that there is really a contentious to Rabat.
