Remembering The Shameful Legacy Of The Crusades

As Christians congregate all over the world to celebrate Christmas Eve, this is a great opportunity to remember the forgotten victims of historical Christian brutality. Christians like to portray themselves as peaceful and generous people, citing their charitable and missionary work, but history tells a different story.

The bloodthirsty Crusades began in 1095, and continued for hundreds of years, killing millions of innocent Muslims and tearing apart the Middle East. Many history scholars trace the motivations for modern Jihad back to these bloodthirsty massacres at the hands of European Christians. Just as many African Americans suffer from post-traumatic slave disorder, Muslims all over the world still feel the pain and suffering inflicted on their ancestors through the crusades, which has been passed down through the generations in the form of poverty, civil unrest and political strife. Muslims still have deep-seated emotions lingering from these terrible days, such as sadness, misery and anger, which often express themselves in the form of suicide bombings, stabbings and violent outbursts.

Insensitive right-wingers like to hold Muslims fully responsible for the crimes of a small minority, but in reality even the minority that engages in these activities is by large motivated by atrocities committed by Christians and Europeans against their kind. We need to use this time not simply to celebrate so-called Christian values, but also to remember those who have suffered the many atrocities of Christian zealots. We need to have an honest conversation about Christian privilege, in which Christians explore their unprocessed guilt and shame, and Muslims express their pain and anger. Until reparations are paid, it’s unlikely that Christian-Muslim relations will ever improve, and Christians either need to face up to this reality, or continue to endure blow back in the form of terrorist attacks, groping and raping by oppressed Muslims throughout the world.

What is really shameful about the crusades is they didnt really finish the job. Just think how peaceful the world would be without islam.

Wow!

Let us not also forget the war waged by Christians against Muslims in muslim owned lands as far north as Tours. Charles the Hammer Martel, a famous franc, was a huge bigot as he initiated an ethnic cleansing program against muslims that lasted nearly 800 years. Can you believe these people are regarded as heroes now??? It turns my stomach.

Muslims were evicted violently from spain in 1492, the SAME YEAR that Columbus initiated genocide against the ENTIRE new world. Coincidence? I think not. The evil europeans were simply finished with one ethnic cleansing and genocide and COULD NOT REST until they had begun another. So they looked on the map and asked, “where can we go next to oppress peace loving indigenous peoples?” All said “AH HA, we can go here to the Americas where there are lots of innocent natives conducting sophisticated open heart surgeries; we shall go and kill them using smallpox as a bioweapon!” The rest is called “American History” and includes pretty much nothing but slavery and stealing things like the transistor and airplane from black slaves.

Islam is responsible for alot of violence and oppression in the world. Imagine dark ages and thats what you would get with sharia law.

No more progressives, no more liberals, no mare anything but conservative radical islamic law.

My previous articles on Muslim Humor and Muslim Jokes were so offensive, so disgusting, so egregiously insulting that I’ve been asked to offer up some more Muslim jokes. If you are easily offended you shouldn’t be reading my blog in the first place. Proceed with caution.

Q: What do you call a Muslim who owns a camel and a goat?
A: Bisexual.

Q: How do Muslims practice safe sex?
A: They mark the camels that kick.

Q: What do Tehran and Hiroshima have in common?
A: Nothing, yet.

Q: What do you call a Muslim who owns 6 goats?
A: A pimp.

Q: whats the difference between a truck full of dead Muslim babies and a truck full of bowling balls?
A: The bowling bowls are hard to pick up with a pitchfork.

Q: How do you tell a Sunni from a Shiite?
A: The Sunnis are the ones with the Shiite blown out of them.

Q: What’s the hardest part about a Muslim killing his own daughter?
A: Suppressing the erection.

Q: How can you tell if a Muslim girl is old enough to marry?
A: Make her stand in a barrel. If her chin is over the top, she’s old enough. If it isn’t, cut the barrel down until her chin is over the top.

And that is not true Islam. True Islam means peace, and it only targets Jews and Christians AFTER given the chance to convert or submit by paying the jizya.

Wow – what a hard hitting article MDB. This is why the Accredited Times is a world leader in journalism. Other publications are afraid to print the truth when it comes to the difficult topics – you’ve cut straight to the heart of the problem.

Muslims have been gravely wronged by the genocidal Europeans – the Iberian peninsula is part of the Islamic Caliphate. Crusaders completely wiped out the peaceful native Muslims and the peninsular has been occupied by blood thirsty drunken cattle torturers ever since.

Until these historic injustices are addressed – disaffected and marginalized young men from the religion of peace will (against their nature) continue to lash out. The West has given them no other option.

The Christians like to defame muslims, especially the Turks. You hear constantly the Armenians complaining about their behaviour, claiming that 1.5 million of them were slaughtered. Now there are barely 50,000 of them in Turkey, and they are doing well, it doesn’t add up. I never saw a movie concerning this issue, if it was not slanders, you would expect to have at least one movie/documentary with an Oscar.

The original young turks were jews, they would have never done something like this because of the Holocaust.

You don’t know anything. Clearly they were Turkish hence the name “young TURKS”.

Exactly my learned friend, and clearly they are all YOUNG turks hence the name. Also, to use the J word feels all wrong and disgusting – ‘top of the race pyramid’ sounds much better and it’s the scientific and academically correct terminology. People should be more aware of the classics.

Can you substantiate your statement that the original Young Turks (early 1900’s) were Jews? Wikipedia mentions only 3 Jews among the prominent Young Turks, one of whom was Muslim by religion.

More importantly, how can anyone still call them “young” if they were alive in the early 1900s???

Yes, this is a great topic that needs a lot more attention! We can’t overcome anti-semitism without remembering the Holocaust, we can’t overcome racism without remembering the Slavery, and we can’t overcome Islamaphobia without remembering the Crusades. Ignoring the Crusades is the same as ignoring the Slavery and ignoring the Holocaust. We need a National Museum of the Crusades added to the National Mall after tearing down the National Museum of American History, which shamefully only displays the Heritage of the United States.

We need to take the Levant back; all the way back!

While sack of Constantinople was definitely positive since it weakened Byzantine empire and led to Mehmet the Conqueror destroying it, I do not think that ANYTHING can ever redeem crusades!

A lot of us white people don’t know much about the Crusades. But our ignorance does not exempt us from collective responsibility. And a lot of white people don’t know much about the Christian religion. That is also a lame excuse for not paying reparations. I personally would like to live long enough to get a brain chip and enjoy the New World Order. So I hope that outraged Muslims will continue to focus on Europe, or maybe the East and West coasts of the U.S. That way I will make it to the New World Order. Is my attitude selfish?

Black Lives Matter

It is selfish, but you’re a white male!!! A white male!!! You need to get chipped so the government can program the white out of you.

I don’t want to play devil’s advocate but can we conside the sack of Constantinople (1204) by the crusaders as something that redeem their sins against the muslims in some way? After all the barbaric Russians who bombed Aleppo are the spiritual heirs of the orthodox church of Constantinople, so it was some kind of pre-emptive punishment perhaps.

By your criteria, wasn’t Thomas Jefferson a “terrorist” and a “rapist”? He violated his AFRICAN-AMERICAN SLAVE Sally Hemings and violently attacked the established government with explosives and firearms, while supporting attacking and torturing “loyalist” civilians (e.g., tarring and feathering, which involved scalding the victim with hot tar). Yet the whites made him President and consider him a “founding father,” an inherently sexist term.

But I suppose whites like Jefferson “assimilated” just fine in your world view. Why don’t you just come out and admit that you don’t like brown people?

christianity was hijacked around the year 300. The original christians preserved the spiritual wisdom of the Egyptians and spread it among the Jews and Syrians. This religion of brotherhood and compassion was a threat to the Roman and Jewish (Pharisee) elite so they conspired to murder Jesus and his followers. This is why the Romans used Christians as lion meal in the circuses. Saul a Pharisee Jewish elite and a Roman citizen fused Judaism, Roman Saturn worship and Christianity and created the form of Christianity known today. The original Christians understood that Jew god was not the god of Jesus.

Saul who killed many of the original christians and feigned conversion created a false doctrine that holds to this day.

The Romans created an official Bible at the council of Nicea along with the Pharisees who worked together to create a doctrine that would keep the Christians controllable. Those who adhered to texts deemed heretical at this council were murdered and their books destroyed.

Some original Christian books existed.
They were found in nag hammadi Egypt. Its called the Nag Hammadi Library.

Christians didnt kill those people. The Roman Empire under the guise of Christianity killed them. The Romans have been killing everyone who posed a threat for 2000 years now.

lets see my post get flagged for hate speech

theres a difference between roman christianity and the original gnostic christianity.

roman christianity has been controlled by the pharisee jews and roman elite for thousands of years

gnostic christianity was purged by the elite. it remains in some form as the eastern orthodox church but even that has been severely persecuted and only came back to life after freedom of religion returned to the soviet bloc

How can you have gnosis if you can’t capitalize or punctuate properly? Maybe you should read the Nag Hammadi scrolls a bit more. Also, try laying off the crack pipe.

if you wanna know what islam is about, just read the Torah. Islam is just radical Judaism. Genital mutilation, sex slavery, its all kosher to the orthodox jews and muslims.

just cuz there have been some reformations doesnt mean islam is any less savage today than it was in the years of muhhamad

Gosh he’s a hateful racist BLM – don’t take too much notice of him. Once Obama rules the election null and void, due to Russian hacking, and orders a third term for himself (or even better makes Michelle the Leader) people like juicedid911 will be so busy working to pay reparations (plus interest) that they won’t have time to be on the internet, let alone write disgusting racist hate-speech comments.

Its time for modern day Crusades. Lets push the trash out all the way back to the desert where they belong. Let them spend the rest of their days chasing camel tail and dry humping eachother during daily prayer.

The world would be a better place without islam.

Cant wait until we move on from oil or until the arabs run dry. Then they can return back to the dust and sand wince they came.

They would be nothing without income from all that crude. Thanks for contributing to global warming.
