Basically you had Muslims pushing and taking over certain lands and the Christians got fed up and pushed back.

The response was, in history's eyes, overdone. But we have people nowadays that argue the bombs didn't need to be dropped to end WW2.


Very true. Good points.

I thought the Muslims controlled it for a long period of time and then the Christians attacked and killed/banned all Muslims and Jews during the first crusade and then more crusades followed (short version)

I could be wrong, it's been a LONG time since college history classes.

See, that has always been MY understanding. I will know more on it by next week. She did say today there were 9, but its been debatable. I think 7 or 8 has always been the consensus.

friendly muslums ran jeruselem and allowed christians access, mean muslims conqured friendly muslims and put the town on lockdown, murdered christians, ambushed them during their travels to the city.

believe it or not there was a peaceful co-existance before the mean muslims rolled into town.

Thats what I thought. The Turks weasled power from the Palestinians and then sliced and diced Christians making their pilgrimmage to Jerusalem.
