The Crusades are History - Get Over it Ahmed

By Bernie on 18 Feb 2013

One of the oft-repeated lies that Muslims enjoy spreading is that the faithful of Islam were minding their own business when for no reason Christians began a series of crusades against them. In an article about Bible-burning, Dr. Ashraf Ezzat wrote this bit of nonsense:

Veterans Today, 9 Sep 2010, Why Muslims Dare Not Burn the Bible in Return

In the eleventh century the crusades began and lasted for two hundred years in trying to rid the holy land of Jerusalem of the barbaric Muslims whom they were told desecrated the Christian sanctuaries in the holy city. Ironically it took the Arabs 70 years to figure out why they were engaged in a war with the Europeans. The Muslims were only defending their homeland against an outward aggression. That much they knew. When they were finally oriented with the true reasons behind the crusades they were more perplexed simply because they never did any harm to the Christian sites anywhere, let alone the city of Jerusalem.

So we are told that no Christian sanctuaries in the Holy Land were desecrated by Muslims and that rumors of such destruction were baseless propaganda to incite Crusaders against the Muslims. However history records the following truth: On 18 Oct 1009, the Fatimid Caliph al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah ordered the complete and utter destruction of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre as part of a general campaign against all Christian places of worship in Palestine and Egypt [Wikipedia]. For those of my readers who do not know, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is purported to be the site of the resurrection of Jesus and one of the holiest of Christian sanctuaries.

No destruction of Christian holy places? That's lie number one, Dr. Ezzat.

But for a moment let's ignore those attacks. The good doctor also writes that the Muslims were only defending their homeland against an outward aggression. OK. Let's consider the following map of the Christian world shortly before the birth of Mohammed:

Aside from Europe, Christians were in North Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Asia Minor, and even parts of the Arabian Peninsula.

And half a millennium later, just before the Crusades, the map looked like this:

If this were a horror movie, someone would be saying, "Hey guys, if we don't stop this green thing soon, there won't be any of us left!"

The map tells the whole story. Muslims were not minding their own business in their own part of the world. They were century by century rapidly infesting not only Christian lands but everywhere else as well.

The truth, Dr. Ezzat, is that the Crusades were in fact a moral and just defense of the Christian homeland against an outward aggression by Muslims. Muslims defending their homeland? That's lie number two, Dr. Ezzat.

After a thousand years, Muslims are still crying about the Crusades. Hey, guys, the Crusades were a good thing; otherwise the whole world would be Muslim today and there would be no America.

If not for the Crusades, the world today would be a stinking sewer of Shariah-compliant nations filled with ignorant, violent, stupid, sick, bigoted, primitive, deluded, misogynistic, intolerant, hateful, backward savages. A world without innovation, industry, freedom, tolerance, or joy.

I, as an Atheist, say thank god for the Crusades. To my Muslim readers I say, "Stop bringing it up as if it were an evil thing. You deserved everything that happened to you. Get over it."
