Like Most People, President Obama Gets The Crusades Wrong

In light of President Obama’s recent remarks comparing the brutality of the Islamic State to the Crusades, it might be time to take a fresh look at those events, according to The Federalist. Were they really the one-sided Dark Ages barbarism we have been taught? Were they an early manifestation of Western imperialism and global conquest?

for The Federalist writes about the history of the Crusades and how they were in response to the Islamic takeover of the Byzantine Empire, Persia, most of Spain and parts of Italy and France. He also writes about the way conquered people were treated. He also talks about the mass murder of Christian pilgrims and monks: 5,000 German Christians killed by Bedouin robbers in the 10th century.
