    Oh look, another garbage source.

    It happily ignores the fact that Christianity was used as justification for European colonialism, while screeching about muslim "imperialism".

    It screeches about "colonialism" once again ignoring the way Christians acted at the exact same time--- easy examples being the way Christian "warrior brotherhoods" treated the common people of the Baltic States and the way Jews were forced to convert in Spain under the fanatically Christian monarchs there.

    It manages to throw in some anti Orthodox bigotry on top of that, and repeats the word "bloody" over and over again....apparently forgetting that 1) warfare of the time period was bloody by definition and 2) christians committed atrocities far worse during the Albigensian Crusade and the sack of Jerusalem, just to name two examples.

    Then we get into blithering about "PC" which is even more pathetic....bringing up "Muslim Turkey" and funnily enough, ignoring the fact that christians committed numerous genocides off their own, often explicitly in the name of Christianity.....blithering about wars between muslim states(and again, funnily enough, ignoring the fact that Christian Europe hurled itself into continent wide conflicts pratically once a decade for years) it really does go on and on.

    You didn't read it very well.

    I did, in fact, read the whole thing. It blithered “imperialist, colonialist, bloody Muslim” approximately twenty times. It also managed to try and turn a half hearted condemnation of the atrocities crusaders committed taking Jerusalem(funnily enough, the only crusader crime mentioned) into another attack on Muslims.
