"The Muslims in Spain sometimes had their mosque adjacent to a synagogue (Toledo, Spain)..."

Well how very nice of them Muslims.

Perhaps one could find some outrage in the fact that Islamic militants marched across much of Europe in an effort to make Islam the dominant faith

The Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal were not separated yet) was occupied for 800 years and the native people were subjugated, raped, robbed and terrorized. Outrage at historical atrocities seems to be directed at certain favored people and not at others.
