So Spaniards can consider themselves lucky if the arabic admixture there is only 11%.
True.

Being an Arab, Being a Muslim and speaking Arabic are not synonymous.

Not true, mixed marriages were not common at all, were forbidden by law and only allowed between Christians Iberians and Jews, but not for Muslims.

And mentioning the "spanish" enclaves, the autochthonous population of Ceuta and Melilla was expelled, and you have more chances of finding Latin American than African blood in the Canary islands due to the extermination of its native inhabitants.

If you don't mind -
1. By whose law?
and 2. Define "marriage" according to Islam please.
