What is khilafa?
What is autocracy, totalitarian, otoritarian, fuhrerprinzip, meritocracy, or the other?

This one is absolutely crazy.
A matter of attitude.

The English spelling, Bel, is "caliphate"... You've heard of it? :) It ruled your country for quite some time...
But I suppose your firmly antidisestablishmentarian, aren't you? :) (Imagine a world ruled by Pope Francis!)

Theocracy, Sparta... And -in its current contenders- admittedly and adamantly totalitarian. (What are ya gonna do? Argue with God? :) )

Not exactly Oakdale, in the Iberian Peninsula the Caliphates were the final phase of Muslim presence, when former powerful Kingdoms were split into many small states ruled by local lords, the "Khalifas". Many of them fighted ones against the others and even made alliances with the Christian kingdoms.

Portugal had already turned independent from Leon and defeated the Moors when that hapened at today's Spanish southern areas, the Al Andaluz. We never had caliphates at our territory.

Both Portugal and Spain are proud of our Muslim heritage at culture, art, poetry, philosophy, science, architecture, food, life style, etc, that makes us absolutely unique amongst Europeans.
One thousand years ago we were already so much ahead of northern european barbarians, including those that went to colonize your country Oakdale.
We still are. :)
A matter of attitude.

Technical question : Is it possible to have a bot, a software, an app, a virus, pay someone for doing it, whatever, that automatically posts "Shut up rjhowie"?
A matter of attitude.

Emotional Iberian stuff and traditional - so expected. Portugal virtually only exists thanks to the handouts from the EU. Without it begging bowls would be a big industry. If the Islamists did a big flood into that country what an added mess that would be!  :headbang:
