Even though you don't come-out and say it, I assume you're talking about the influx of Moroccan muslims into Spain  threatening to destabilize the country socially and politically.  I read that most Spainiards believe this growing muslim minority wants to establish dominance not only in North Africa but also wants to create an islamic state in southern Spain... a modern Moorish Empire, so to speak. Is this what you're trying to present here, or are you trying to say that the sea-levels are going to rise due to the melting polar ice-cap?

spain and morocco have been inextricably linked since the end of the Visigothic monarchy. Until Reyes Catholica Spain had some form of Muslim rule for 700 years revhinv its peak around the millenium

Then on Spain had some form of rule in morocco and the western Sahara until the 1970s, there are still a few  N African enclaves to this day. Morocco will always play  a part in spanish affairs.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
