Recommended Posts

So this thread is about the historical records regarding the Crusades and the events that developed around them. I was very tired of always hearing how terrible Christians were, because of what the Crusader's did almost a thousand years ago. Well, I knew nothing about the Crusades at that time, and started doing my own research, I was amazed to discover how woefully ignorant the West is regarding the Crusades. I will post three Documentaries (of which I watched first) and will later post other videos and articles regarding the Crusades. Feel free to post links, or leave comments about the Crusades. =) withought further a do, lets begin, the History of the Crusades!

Today we start the new series 'Real Crusade History'-I believe some good points are made in this Series though some material that is presented I personally believe is debatable, and at times biased.


Episode 1-Did Islamic Atrocities Provoked the Crusades?




Episode 2-Saladin: Good or Evil?




Episode 3-Godfrey of Bouillon: His Life, His Legend




Episode 4-Crusader Government vs Muslim Government

 Yeah this guy has done a lot of study and is very passionate about the subject. I also believe some of his points could be debated against however. I find this subject to be very interesting to say the least, I was very ignorant about the Crusades for a very long time.

 Anyways here are today's episodes from him, continuing with "Real Crusades History".



Episode 19-Richard the Lionheart Kills the Muslim Prisoners at Acre





Episode 20-Reconquista: Weapons and Tactics in Crusader Spain





Episode 21-Acts of Valor During the Crusades

Hello, finally back with some more videos to bring to you all. Hope you enjoy. =)

I believe in this CIA episode some of the material presented is wrong such as it is ok to fight for Cathoclism as he says at the end. It's difficult game to play.

Edit: Should note it is never okay to kill the innocent as the people in these videos sort of illude it is wrong to kill only Jewish people, they may not say ONLY but it is sort of illuded at. I wanted to take this time to say murder or killing of the innocent of any belief system or ethinicty is evil in itself and is wrong.

The video regarding the attacks on the validity of the Crusades and called into question whether or not it was truly defensive, the man in the video above was speaking about. Most of these issues have already been addressed and should show you all just how ridiculous these specific arguments are against the Crusades.

In addition here is another Video Response to this persons outlandish ignorance and condescending attitude in the video.
