      Cause of Habsburg politics, Protestant Reformation, and just overall motivation. There was much more to be gained in obtaining land in Northern Europe than in the Maghreb where population was much more lower and far more hostile to you.

      You're saying that as if (southern) Iberians and Berbers look completely different, when in reality they pretty similar

            Nah, they look closer to say Syrians than Moroccans imo. The Moroccans have around 35+% Black dna compared to the Iberian who only has 5%

      I read that in the 15th century, portugal used to carry out slave raids or buy slaves from sub-saharan africa and bring them to portugal. These slaves were prized possessions that were very well because of their exotic features and the fact that they readily converted to christianity. Meanwhile north african muslim slaves were treated far worse due to islamophobia

    They got BTFO'd everytime they tried. Something you have to keep in mind about Spain is they were good at pushing around weaker polities and unadvanced peoples, but any halfway competent nation could wipe the floor with them.

            ISrael banned all media because they're winning, and Hamas refuses to surrender because they're losing, Israel is saying it will takes months to try "pacify" rafah. Who is losing ? From what I Can tell this has been the greatest anti-Israel movement in history after WW2

    North Africans would be Chrisitan today if the Ottoman didn't come to save their ass. Pretty much all major north African ports from Tanger to Tunis passing through Alger were in Spanish or Portuguese hands. Nafris were totally the b***h of Iberians just like in Roman times.

    They did tho, at least the Portuguese.

    In 1415 the Portuguese conquered Ceuta. It was the first territory a European power had held outside of Europe since the Roman Empire fell 1000 years before.

    They would go on to capture and control many coastal cities in Morrocco. The last one to fall was Mazagão (modern day El Jadida) in the late 1700s (300 years after the Portuguese took over).

    Early on the Portuguese had ambitions to control the main port cities in North Africa, but in the late 1400s they shifter their focus to the establishment and conquest of port cities in Africa and Asia.

    The North African cities were an enormous drain on the Empire's treasury, as they needed to be constantly resupplied with soldiers and wheat.

    Both Spain and Portugal continued it in North Africa, hence the existence of Ceuta and Melilla. Not to mention the fact that cities such as Oran, Larache and so on were at some point in Iberian hands.
