From Mark Urbin:
We should also recall that in addition to the Anglo-Americans a significant part of Texas culture was derived from Spain. The primary accomplishment of the Spaniards prior to the settlement of the New World was the liberation of their homeland from Islamic tyranny. Oh, and the main point of their funding the Columbus expeditions was to effectively fornicate the Islamic rulers who were blocking trade between East and West.
In the conflict between Islam and Texas the Texans will win every time.
