The Crusades: Muslim Perspective on the Crusades

By February 11, 2006

Follow me on:

Most histories of the Crusades tend to focus on the Crusaders themselves and the perspectives of European Christians seeking conquest and plunder in the Holy Land. But what about the Muslims whose lands were invaded and cities sacked? What did they think about these religious armies marching out of Europe? Read Article: Muslim Perspective on the Crusades

You do realize that for centuries before Europeans invaded Muslim homelands… Muslim armies were raping Europe? So….. I mean, in your article you’re talking about how their cities were sacked.. Well, invaders came to Europe first, sacked churches, pissed on art, raped nuns and even monks and kept child sex slaves and burned towns and massacred millions… So… what right to they have to complain about the crusades?

Millions? OK, prove it.

Tu quoque fallacy. Do you believe that the crusades were morally justified or not?

Honestly, no. There is no way any war is morally correct. It doesn’t matter what religion you are, war is war.

Honestly, it was so long ago, noone could possibly care about the crusades or crusaders anymore, yes they were both in the wrong, and no, nobody should try to force their religion on anyone else. Yes, we all know the correct religion, or we should, but I digress, anywho, It was too long ago to notice the real happening of these two crusade groups. Honestly, you just fight over things that really need to stay in the past. Past is the Past, that’s where it stays, and there’s no way to bring it back. We only talk about it in History class because we “need” to learn these things, therefore, the arguement is pointless. :)

When we will all realize that we can all live and learn together ? there is no need to fight and argue sit back and be still, we are all in this together, give out only love and offer help to all no matter what and without exception. We can all be rich and never hungry no guns and bombs to buy, we can all move onwards and upwards, no more hungry people dying and innocent people getting maimed and killed in unnecessary war. Lets get over our differences and change the future for our children .
