opinions from the high desert

Possession is not 9/10 of the law.

From the Clarity and Resolve Lexicon.

waqf: an Islamic religious endowment, wherein the property (land or otherwise) is entrusted to God in perpetuity to be used for the benefit of Muslims. In Islamic doctrine, lands conquered by Muslims in God’s name are considered to be thereafter inviolable and may not be forfeited. Muslim land, past and present, and the totality of its respective awqaf (pl.) are considered to be the eternal property of God and His servants (Muslims). Israel, for instance, is considered to be an Islamic waqf, and therefore not open to appropriation by Jews, even though its their homeland.

So, does this mean Spain owes some back rent?
