Islamic Crusades pre-date Western Crusades. Western Crusades were a response to try to stop the Islamic invasions.

Picking a nit — a Crusade is a war for the cross. The Muslims have the equivalent (a jihad) which is a war for the Crescent (so to speak).

Islam turned a large part of India into an abbatoir. Here's the truth about Islam:

The Legacy of Jihad: Islamic Holy War and the Fate of Non-Muslims (Andrew Bostom)

and

The Suicide of Reason: Radical Islam's Threat to the West (Lee Harris)

Islam is a serial murderer of entire cultures and peoples. This is what Islam has done throughout its entire history. Those whom it does not destroy, it enslaves and impoverishes. Islam is the enemy. Islam must be destroyed.

List should include the raid on Rome and looting of the tombs of St. Peter and St. Paul by Muslims in 846 A.D. Then, the naval Battle of Ostia off the port of Rome in 849 A.D. The Leonine walls at the Vatican were built as a response (Muslim captured at Ostia were forced to work on the defenses).

There is a “persecuted” mindset which justifies its own actions but condemns a similar response. How many times have we seen Muslims initiate some action and then cry “persecution” when the other side responds and defends itself? I would say in just about every current conflict in the world that involves at least one Muslim side and that means just about every conflict in the world. For such a “peaceable” bunch, the Muslims sure seem to get involved in a lot of conflicts.

Thank you for the post. They are running ads for Islam on the local radio station here in Kansas. I have seen “Islamic Centers” springing up.

Any chance of seeing a St. Peter’s Cathedral in Mecca? No? So much for a religion of peace.

Your site has great links and background.

Also thought exposing Ron Paul’s blame America was a good
addition.

RON PAUL Forgets the Islamic Crusades and Attacks
Posted by FactReal on February 12, 2010

Libertarian Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) blames America for the Islamic Terrorism…and forgets history.

“Why do they hate us?…Why are they terrorists?”
“They are terrorists because we are occupiers.”
“There is hate on both sides,”
said Ron Paul on CNN’s Larry King Live
(video at 5:00 mark)
Watch how Ron Paul’s comments made the liberals happy
(Sheila Jackson-Lee, Larry King.)

On top of that, Ron Paul nodded in agreement when leftist
Sheila Jackson-Lee said, “The terrorists acted on President Bush’s clock.”

Ron Paul seems to forget three important historical facts:

1. Islamics launched their Crusades long before the European Crusades

2. Islamic attacks against Americans started decades before the presidency of George W. Bush.

3. Islamic doctrine calls for Muslims to attack dar al-harb (non-Muslims) until they submit to the will of Allah and accept Sharia law.

So when will the mohammedan hordes return Constantinople to us Christians?

Yeah, that's what I thought.
