    Keeping in mind that a good 80% of the Television media and academia is either liberal or sympathetic to liberals.

    If you have been educated in the West about the Crusades there is a 80% chance that you have been taught it from the liberal viewpoint, which is the Crusades was an unprovoked aggression.

    The history usually starts with the call of Pope Urban to war.

    While that is part of the History, the white liberals purposefullly ignore a span of 300 years leading up to this point.

    First let me try to explain the genral mindset of the white liberals. It is basically this: The West(USA & Western Europe) has been and is the problem in the world. The evil in this world is all about European colonialism and American Emperialism. Anything that distracts from this viewpoint is ignored, erased or downplayed. The evils of communism or Islamic Theocracy for example, is either completely ignored, downplayed is blamed on the West or is discussed outside of the context of these two.

    While there certainly is a case to be made for the evils of the West, it does not mean we should ignore the evils of other parts of the world!

    The Crusades in brief.

    Prior to the Crusades, the Christians were living peacefully(after suffering years of persecution in the Roman Empire until the time of Constantin) within the Byzantine Empire(Aka the extended Roman Empire) which stretched from Rome throughout all the territory that surrounded the Mediterranian sea including Jerusalem.

    The Muslims conquered Jerusalem in the 7th. However the Christians were initially allowed to stay but they had to pay the Jizya and obay Muslim rule. They were also allowed to make pilgrimmages to Jerusalem.

    This changed when the Sejuk Turks won an internal Muslim struggle against the Fatimid Muslim branch in the 11th century.

    The Seljuk Turks basically had a more hardline form of Islam and they started attacking unarmed Christians pilgrims and beheadeding many of them brutally...

    This specifically lead Pope Urban to call for a Crusade to not only free Jerusalem but also allow safe passage for Christian pilgrims to Jerusalem.

    The Seljuk Turks eventually defeated the Byzantine Empire and grew into the Ottoman Empire, which was a Muslim empire, with the seat of the Caliphate in modern day Turkey. This Empire was eventually defeated during WWI and the Empire was split into the Middle Eatern countries we know today such as Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Syria, Libya, etc.

    Since this defeat there has been a tension te re-establish the Caliphate(Empire). This is the struggle that we see being played out today.

    Amazing, especially since I just said a couple weeks ago, "I think I'm beginning to understand the reason for the Crusades!" What we are seeing today with ISIS and similar types of bloody evil has happened in history, thus, sending forth the crusaders protecting the christian people, their right to have freedom. It makes sense now in light of what we've been seeing -- mass murder in depraved actions! In fact ISIS is following the same pattern used before in history.

    You have sensible knowledge and therefore a true north leader, rare and wonderful. Yeaaaa! Keep praying.
