Nautikos, the Historian?

I am but an amateur historian, and you are a professional historian? Do not let your expertise go to waste here! Might I suggest that you post pertinent videos to make your points, so that you do not have to write lectures? Of course, you have to spend the time to find the videos, and there is the rub.

Not to impose upon your time further,  but did you watch the video I presented here, showing the 548 Muslim battles against the Judeo/Christian/Greco/Roman West? I would value your opinion of the video's accuracy and impact.

You may have noticed that TAPS uses videos to excellent effect in his blogs, as well.

I do thank you indeed! I am actually quite familiar with the history of the crusades, but have never dicussed them in detail here! It's just that I have shied away from giving 'History Lectures' here for a number of reasons, not least that they involve more work than I'm willing to put into all this. But I certainly commend you for making this effort, with excellent results...And people here know what I think of B (ISIS-is-not-Islamic) O...

Thank you so much for responding to me. Yes I agree about the present and past of the two. I was not trying to find fault but those who are not familiar with Christianity, at least not closely do not get the differences in the wars. I appreciate your work.

BC-A and Intern--  thanks for the encouragement, it is appreciated.

Justi-- great point about the Crusaders being Catholic, and not Protestant, and the big difference. The Muslims also have their schisms, the main one being Sunni VS Shi'ite, as we all know now. In the religious wars of Christianity, Catholics and Protestants kiiled each other with equal enthusiasm, but the Catholics were generally the attackers and the Protestants were generally the defenders. That is many centuries behind us, but the Sunnis and Shi'ites are slaughtering each other and us NOW. In the context of my article (the basic differences between Muslim and Christian), the finer points of Christian divisions were not pertinent.....  and would have made the article even longer! Plus, I am not prepared to write about the finer points.

This one's better than Naut's. I'm in the library. I can see that this one's a good historical analysis. Good luck with your blogging.

There are some points left out! All the talk in here called Christian means that this was an agreement between the Catholic Church and the King of England at the time. There was no Protestant church and that makes a tremendous difference in calling anything just Christian. Your posts are very good but also very long.

A very interesting read, and you have done a fine job making your argument. I am sure Naut will appreciate this entry when he comes across it.

Thanks to you both for pointing out that awful typo, that reverses the meaning. Reminds me of the importance of proper punctuation, illustrated by "Let's eat, Grandpa" as opposed to "Let's eat Grandpa". LOL, I will fix that immediately.

The video alone is extremely eye-opening. The red dots spread over the map like measles, and it is indeed a disease of the mind and spirit. That video should be shown on the news shows of every network, as it is real history, and the video is news. Not gonna happen, but wouldn't it be nice.

Excellent post...and, Taps is right about the typo....In fact, I highlighted that sentence as something very powerful that could be a slogan on a t-shirt!  Peaceful Muslims can choose to be peaceful in spite of these doctrines,  but that does NOT make Islam a peaceful religion.

Like I have many that Naut has posted, I'm forwarding this one to some friends and my daughter.  I wish the peaceful Muslims would wake up and start denouncing the radicals, identifying the imans and the schools where they know the violence is being preached - I'm afraid the mood is going to get ugly here and they are going to be forced to get more active.

A very interesting, informative and well-written post.  I haven't yet looked at the video, but I will.  I have just been reading what you have written.  There is, I think one typo that needs to be corrected before too many get into reading here:  "Peaceful Muslims can choose to be peaceful in spite of these doctrines,  but that does make Islam a peaceful religion."
