Amazigh Language and Culture (Berbers and Moors)

Parent Category: Languages and Cultures
The Amazigh are the indigenous people of North Africa, who have long been known by the exonyms Moor and Berber and have a number of distinct languages. They have historically been divided between those who remained in the mountains and opposed the various civilizations of North Africa (the Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, etc.) and those who integrated into those societies, who became part and parcel of the Arab Islamic Empires in North Africa and Spain.
The Moors bought mathematics, philosophy, literacy, science, and tolerance to Spain. It was quite a dirty barbaric country by comparison.
All countries conquered by the Muslims were allowed to practice their own religions. Islam is very tolerant of other religions. There were certain exceptions for the Ottoman Empire. The government was to be Muslim, non-Muslims had to pay a special tax, and non-Muslims had to wear certain clothing....
  The Berbers, or Moors, of North Africa invaded Spain in the eighth century, possibly at the invitation of the Visigoths who refused to adopt Catholicism. There were some forced conversions and atrocities, but the Muslims largely accepted the Jews and Christians of Spain as "people of the Book"...
The Robin Moor was a US ship sunk in neutral waters by a German submarine several months before the United States was in the Second World War. The sinking was an illegal act and caused increased tension between the United States and Germany.
in 1492 Isabella of Castille and her husband Ferdinand of Aragon forced the Moores to surrender at Grenada. This would end the official rule of the Muslims in Spain. The Spanish Inquisition also hugely decreased Muslim's presence.
Isabell and her Husband King Ferdinand inflicted the final military defeat on the Moors in 1492. Various Spanish kingdoms fought to evict the Moors over seven centuries.

The part of Spain under Moorish control was called Al-Andalus
The movement to drive the moors out of Spain since the first invasion in 711 AD until the last battle in 1492 AD (almost eight centuries) is called the Reconquista.
The Moors influenced Spanish in something like the way that the Normans influenced English. In both cases, the ruling class of the country spoke a different language than the ordinary people, imposing that language on them and gradually altering the vocabulary. The underlying grammatical structures...

Moors were among the Muslims who invaded Spain 711. They settled southern Spain, and maintained kingdoms there until 1492, when they were conquered, and most of them left soon after as a result of practices of the Spanish Inquisition. In the meantime, they had contributed to one of the most advanced...
This response will use the term Amazigh which is the proper term for Berber. It depends entirely on the country, what is meant by "more rights", and which distinguishing factor is more important (Amazigh or Woman). With the exception of Morocco and Tunisia, Amazigh women in most North African...

The Moors were Muslims from northeastern Africa that invaded the Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal) during the middle ages.

Persistence drove the Moors from Spain. Spain was not a unified country when the Moors invaded in 711 AD.
