"The jihadist movement in Spain is one of the most active and dangerous in Europe," Pegida members said in an email, calling Spain a "jihad hot spot."
The members of the movement said Spaniards were growing tired of their country's Islamization, explaining a growing interest in Pegida's activities.
"There are many people in Spain who are tired of Europe's Islamization, and many show interest in our movement. We are surprised by the number of Spaniards that show support for us," the email said.
Pegida, which held protests following terror attacks in Paris last week, will hold a rally in Madrid and expects the movement to grow gradually in Spain and in Europe, as it has in Germany. German Pegida members will also attend the Madrid rally.
Pegida is particularly active in Germany, organizing weekly rallies in the country. The movement has drawn criticism from the country's officials, who accused Pegida of promoting hatred.
