It appears that the “History” Channel has presented a travesty of the Crusades in their new special “The Crescent and the Cross”.
Once again, in a distorted revisionist history, the Christians and the Church are presented as greedy, ruthless oppressors of peaceful cultured Muslims! Christian wrongdoings are described in lurid detail. Muslim ones glossed over or suppressed. We need to protest these sort of falsehoods as strongly as other religions would do.
Why do the Liberal establishment do this? All such distorted programming will do is back up the Bin Laden view of history and inflame Muslims with a false sense of grievance. Then the hotheads go off and look to kill a few christians.
This sort of distorted “history” doesn’t make Muslims face up to their own ill deeds. It just falsely paints the Christians as evil aggressors. In fact between 650 and 1700 AD Muslims invaded Syria, Palestine, Anatolia, Armenia, Byzantium, Greece, Hungary, Turkey, Lebanon, Tunisia, Serbia, Croatia, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, France and Spain.
I really think the Church needs a department that will make formal objections to such distortions of history!
