Read "myth of an andalusian paradise". Its a great book written by an expert in the field who thoroughly debunks this liberal myth that moorish iberia was some liberal multicultural paradise.

In particular there are a few sections dedicated to our favorite merchants and how they allowed our enemies in. History rhymes. Its like pottery.
