I hope that you do not bother but when I read your post I see that you are extremely resentful
With all my respect for you, I understand that moroccans like you feel resentful but it is known by all that Ceuta and Melilla are Spanish, and I think that it is time to accept this dear shrifia.
People in Ceuta and Melilla are Spanish with moroccan influences and the kings of Spain tomorrow will visit two spanish cities, and that is the reality.

I am Portuguese and I don't have much to say about this controversial issue but I don' think anyone here is extremely resentful. I can tell you I found the argument between lula and shrifia very important to understand what is going on with this trip.
Let's enjoy the royal visit and be Friends

In the same way that many countries have islands in seas and oceans, or that Russia and Turkey are between two continents.

In 1415 Ceuta was occupied by John I of Portugal, in 1580 the crowns of Portugal and Spain were united so it became part of the Spanish empire too. After Portugal became independant from Spain, Ceuta sided with Spain and in 1668 Alphonso VI of Portugal ceded the city to Carlos II of Spain.

Melilla was conquered in 1497 by the 3rd Duke lof Medina Sidonia and became part of the crown of Castille.

Neither city was ever Maroccan as Marocco didn´t exsist yet, the belonged to the Kingdom of Fez.

And before they had been linked to the Moslem Kingdoms of the Peninsula Iberica, or to civilizations as the Byzantine one and Carthage.
