    Yes, and it's so much easier reading just the headlines than the stories underneath them.

    That kind of depends on which crusade you are talking about and whether you are referring to the publicly-stated aims or the real aims of the leaders. Two quite different things.

    I highly recommend it for reading to better educate oneself regarding the history of the middle east....
    The Crusades Through Arab Eyes by Amin Maalouf is one of the best accounts that you could read to accompany an old-style European viewpoint. For a third perspective, that of the Byzantine Empire (as much a victim of the crusades as the Jews and Moslems) I recommend Byzantium:The Decline and Fall by John Julius Norwich.

    Is that where your ideas about wiping out the Muslim population come from?

    Perhaps you should start using quotes. Are you one of those who are willing to deny free speech to others but will happily lie in order to try and make a point?

    No, not at all. You have every right to say we should go to war with Islam, and I have every right to say that you're wrong.

    OK, edit: I went back to see who had said what, and it turns out you weren't the one who posted:

    I think there are 3 basic outcomes outta this mess

    A The annihilation of Islam and every Muslim from Mother Earth. Destroy or convert every Muslim man, woman and child, burn their mosques, Korans and every writing.

    Aka Wipe them out

    B We convert to Islam or die. They win. No more dar el harb, only the dar el Islam

    C Accept that there will be a state of war to varying degrees between Islam and non-Islam for centuries to come.

    I pick C
    but you do seem to be on the same side of the argument.

    So, am I wrong, or do you agree with the above post?

    I think they're all a bunch of idiots. The Muslims and the Christians.

    No one here is saying what the people did in Afghanistan was right. The fact stands it was wrong in about a million ways. What people are saying is that Pastor Jones caused it. I don’t get how that is not clear. You propagate the values of free speech yet swim in hypocrisy when you endanger others by the words you shout.
