Remember the Crusades were in response to the Seljuk Turks capturing Jerusalem and murdering Christians. The previous owners were also Muslim, but they didn't have a tendency of burning Christian children alive in the streets.

>Spanish inquisition and pretty much all the other inquisitions/witch hunts, if you want an example of Christians killing the literal shit out of each other
Also bloody mary, the Protestant vs. Catholic battles... the list goes on, Christians killed the shit out of each other before.

Crusades would've happened even if religion was not a factor.

You seem to have forgotten the fact that the purpose of the Crusades was to take back land already conquered by the Muslims. Saying "Oh, those dang Christians, coming in and taking and stealing and pillaging!" means you must also say "Oh those dang Muslims, coming in-yadda yadda" was the Crusades were a reaction to the Jihad.

There were many reasons. Under the leadership of Saladin, he DID allow Pilgrims of all faiths to enter and prey, however, as he held pieces of The True Cross (the cross jesus was hung on) he refused to give it up and let christians even see it, due to the moral he feared it would give them.
There were also economic and territorial reasons, political battles, and of course, the repelling of invading Muslim forces coming up the coast.

Forgetting the crusades.
Let's think of the inquisitions and witch hunts, bloody marry, the protestant vs catholic fuckstorm that happened in the sixteenth and seventeenth century...
Christians killed the literal fuck out of each other, Spain did so much conquering in the name of God it's ridiculous, the Americans destroyed the Indians in the name of god (don't believe me, go look up manifest destiny)...
The crusades were holy wars and so not really an accurate depiction of what is really going on in the middle east now. It's not a holy war, it's a splintering of the religion itself as it goes into the modern world and starts having to answer modern questions such as those of scientific nature. The muslims pretty much condemned science even more violently than the church did after having gotten so far in a few decades... so that set them back into a dark age for a few thousand years, filled with as much fighting and pillaging as the Christian dark ages.
They need to settle down but a lot of fractions are set in their extremist ways and so, just like with Christianity, have to be slowly condemned and made to fizzle out, or killed by a ruler who doesn't believe in what they do.
It took Christians 300 or 400 years to settle down after Luther caused the first wave of what was to be a massive clusterfuck of battles and massacres and what I consider to be the first "modernization" attempt by Christianity- if the church's power was absolute than things like science couldn't flourish and of course the Royals did like the idea of themselves being absolute and not subject to the church, give em time and in the meanwhile shoot the extremists to help speed things up.

Indeed, but all battles counted must follow these prerequisites:
1. They must be large scale battles, no skirmishes
2. They must be offensive battles, designed to take land and control over territory, not defensive battles, designed to keep the land currently held.
Both the Jihads and the Crusades follow these rules.
#85 - bojesus (02/20/2015) [-]
That hasn't answered any of my questions. Unless I missed something when watching that, he didn't mention anything about excluding battles based on their size. In terms of them being offensive battles, he did say that for the crusades, but when talking about the jihadists he included battles initiated by christians in Spain unless a misunderstood what he was saying .
Again, if that is what he did, he should have mentioned it.
#87 - captainfuckitall (02/20/2015) [-]
Eh, I would think going INTO a foreign land and spreading yourself out counts as a 'hostile take-over', especially since violence was indeed often used.
I swear I heard those rules for that map before, but since I cannot find them you are under no obligation to believe me. I can only hope that the sheer vast difference and the amount of time Jihads have been going on vs. the Crusades will speak for itself. Also, I'm pretty sure the word Jihad in itself implies aggression.
#89 - bojesus (02/20/2015) [-]
I don't know what the first sentence you put has to do with anything, as I already agree with it.
And, again, its not that I don't believe you. I would just rather he made it clear that he wasn't including every battle that happened. Someone watching that video who didn't know anything about the crusades would get the wrong idea from it.
Also, I never claimed that the christians were in the wrong with the crusades. I just think spreading misinformation to convince people of the fact is stupid.
And both crusade and jihad would imply aggression.
