    The Aztecs were a chichimeca tribe living in some caves in the North American desert.

    When the Apache invaded in the late Middle Ages, some Aztecs renamed themselves Mexica and went south and conquered the people down there in the 1400s. The Aztecs that stayed near the Apache became Comanches.

    You live in the desert of Aztlan.

    I think what we need is for more people to be racist scumbags, then the era of peace and harmony will surely commence.

    I don't believe you are a white South African, never have, never will.
    Correct, I am not a white South African and never claimed to be. I do like it here in Cape Town with its multicultural environment. There are about the same number of Mosques as Churches and every skin colour you can imagine.
    Of the nice people that I have encountered that really welcomed me to Cape Town, one was Jewish, one was Christian, two were Muslim and several others never mentioned religion.

    ATY likes to make up his own history.
    For example, "The Romans were Latinos because they spoke Latin " -ATY

    Is this even real, or is it a youtube hoax?

    In a free democratic country everyone has the right to peacefully demonstrate, even if you happen to abhor their ideas. This looked like a peaceful demonstration. I do not agree with what they stand for but I will fight for their right to express their views in a peaceful manner. Blowing up property and people is not a peaceful demonstration of views.

    What is it that you think they stand for? I couldn't tell from the video what the march was about. I do not like many of the teachings of Islam, but it is entirely possible they were marching against discrimination in which case I might agree with their cause.

    Arizona was north Mexico until very recently. Chichimeca means nomadic tribe from the North American Southwest desert which was a single cultural region as can be seen here:

    wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nordamerikanische_Kulturareale_en.png

    Late middle ages is the 13th century and 1400s is 15th century.

    The phrase "Aztec Empire" is an inaccuracy that some historians choose because they get confused between the Mexica tribe and the nation of Mexico.

    Oh, and uther, its perfectly ok that you don't understand how la cosa nuestra works. 😉

    You are absolutely right. I made an assumption I should not have made. Thank you for pointing it out.

    "A plane was also seen flying over Pendle, with a banner saying 'We Love Muhammad-Mercy To All Mankind’.

    Note sure what the problem is here - it's a community event in which Muslims invite non-Muslims to celebrate a religious birthday, and pay for the costs themselves. The town itself is clearly segregated and has some BNP activists, but it's a tiny Muslim outpost in an overwhelmingly white, Christian and secular region.

    I was making a joking reference to the retarded Fox News analyst who claimed Birmingham was a "Muslim-only" city.

    I've been there on not a few occasions, have friends who live in Nelson, a pretty little place with lots of mill workers cottages still extant. The drive down through Kirby Lonsdale is pretty as well, not as majestic as Scotland, but pretty in its own way.
