The Crusades: an ongoing psychological disorder?

The Crusades: an ongoing psychological disorder?
Back in the past, the ruler of the Eastern Roman empire asked the European church in Rome for help against the Turks who were practicing the new religion called 'Islam'.

The Pope in Rome agreed to the proposal of his Eastern Roman counterpart, and decided to launch what became to be known as "the first crusade". Exaggerated tales were used to gather supporters, promises of wealth and heaven were given, and most importantly: the biggest act of demonetization in human history.

Demonetization of "Brown Arabs" and "Muslims" of course. "The wretched beasts who were raping the virgins and crucifying the infants"

The motives of the knights who went in these organized serieses of terrorist attacks against the people of the Middle East didn't stop up until Jerusalem fell, and was given to European-supported Jews; a proxy that carried on the terrorism. 

The people in the region were decimated for a thousand year with war and external invasion; or aggression by proxies supported from the outside.

What the pope did a thousand years ago was to be carved in the cultures of the East and the West; racism became a fact between Europeans and Arabs, you don't have to be Christian to inherit an unexplained hatred for Muslims -or Arabs-looking people-; if you're an Arab or of Muslim-heritage you will be fed the hatred.

Is religion to be blamed? then what about the pope "promising the hungry European population rivers of milk and honey if they invade the Turks"?
If religion is also responsible, then why did the pope ask his knights to "ignore the 7 deadly sins" because they are forgiven anyways; if they joined the crusades?
Was christianity behind the starvation of Europe?
How is Islam responssible, after seeing the kind of civilization that grew in spain?

Why don't humans blame themselves for the destruction they cause? 

Is Islamophobia a mere ongoing mutated psycological disorder that grew in the hearts of non-Muslims because of:
1-the lies of the pope
2-the horrors of the crusades
3-Bush's media and its lies -that matched the pope's lies- about Muslims?
4-The war on terror

------
Just believe me. Your face, clothes, the way you speak, the money you have, the things you own, the car you drive, nothing of that defines you; only your actions do, only, that's your worth. Every action can be one of two: good or bad. That is you. Don't allow anybody to fool you into self-hating because of stupid standards, that sidetracks you from the main categories that define you.

Clearly because we're jealous of your faction being so blameless. Wink

Everyone that fought in the Crusades is unavailable for comment at this time. The peoples of a book are undeterred in their quest for resolution to this ancient sore on humanity's ass. Atheists worldwide are trying to avoid the crossfire. This is chimp3 reporting. Back to you Atlas!

Islam had been around for nearly 500 years (according to the story they tell) by the time of the Crusades and Jerusalem had fallen by 637 so by 1096 people should certainly have gotten used to the idea.  There is fairly convincing evidence that one of Urban's main objectives was to get squabbling xtian knights out of Europe so they would stop killing other xtians.

I find it hard to feel too sorry for anyone who gets involved in a war over who has the better invisible friend.

That's an ironic statement coming from you, they guy that thinks that the Middle East being a shithole is the fault of everyone but the people living there.

The religious elite offering imaginary rewards to the masses in exchange for their blind obedience? Nope, don't see any religion in that.

Religion is often a tool of politics. Those who wield it don't even need to believe in any of the bullshit, they just need those who do their bidding to believe it.

No one deserves to be hurt based solely on their religion, and I scorn anyone who does that, whether they're from another religion or irreligious.

Yes politics. That's why the Saudi princes have lots of nice toys and get away with sex before marriage. Then they have to hand lots of money to pseudo charities around the world in order to keep their Wahaabi-Salafi allies in check.

Al-saud uses DAESH as a tool to beat Shia and Kaffir with and the Americans obviously know this but do nothing. Hilary could have used her extensive "foreign policy experience" to stop this madness. Instead she's happy to take the money they offer for all those fabulous speeches.

Did you know that somebody born in space (e.g. on Mars) will NEVER be able to conduct Hajj or Umrah because the gravity of the Earth will be too much for their bodies to handle? You can forget about giving Dawah to Luke Skywalker, because he will never be able to visit Mecca. If you have to retrofit the Quran then that should be a clear a sign as any that your religion is not the right one. And that's the Quran debunked. Easy.
