Deleted the Traditions section because it is all wrong.[edit]

I have deleted the "Traditions" section as it is just totally wrong. The cathedral in Santiago is not dedicated to "Santiago Matamoros" and Mohamed Meziane never did the traditional offering a anyway. The supposed offering by Mizzian is a matter of legend and the article in telegraph.co.uk, by Isambard Wilkinson, dated 22 July 2004, is really shoddy reporting, most of it just repeating poorly sourced information or just legends. It is very easily verifiable that during the two short years that Mizzian was in Galicia the offerings were not made by him. In 1953 the offering was made by Admiral Regalado, in 1954 by General Franco, and in 1955 by Lt. General Rubio. GS3 (talk) 14:32, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
