Any intelligent person knows that eyewitness accounts can vary. Historians’ rule no. 1 is to evaluate all sources critically.

Calling me names doesn’t change the fact that you are the one violating the basic FR principle: evaluate things critically.

All I said is that most historians do not take Fulcher literally. They have discovered Muslim eyewitness sources that contradict him.

They are just being historians. You are being obstinate.

In post #34, you were the one who called me a dupe, pal.

Complete BS. Please point out these new Muslim sources that paint the Crusaders as nice guys after they captured Jerusalem.

And you did not answer my question about the sack of Constantinople, which undermines your whole silly assertion.
