Don't you think the Crusades at least had one positive aspect to it? By driving out the Muslims..if it wasn't for the Crusades, the Muslims could have very well driven Islam to the west..

You have a very limited sense of history. The Islamic world has pushed all the way to and conquered Spain, and was moving forward to the west. At the 'Battle of Vienna' were the "Crusaders" able to finally push Islamic advances. We should be thankful for the Crusaders - or else the majority of Europe might at the current moment be Islamic and the majority of Europeans living under true Islamic law.

Did you watch all of that Sassan?(by the way that  kids programme is really good)Now watch it again very slowly and write it down if you have too,then you will see your comment doesn't make sense,even  after all those crusades it was still a Muslim(majority) country from 1500 onwards right up until  the second world war,did the Muslims drive to the west?I suggest you buy the horrible historys kids d.v.d and catch up on it.And it sounds like we started this stupid idea of a promise of heaven for doing wicked  immoral things,the irony.

lol - you are so blind in your anti-Semitism (from other posts) and your hatred for western culture that you are willing to go so far as to infer the Caliphate as a "multi-culturalist" society lol

Sassan that is a slur om me(which i hope will be looked into) and i hope you take that back,i am an atheist and humanist above all and like i said before, what the Israeli's are doing to the Palestinians is what I'm against! along with lots of European and American Jewish people as well,You sir are the one that keeps bringing religion into it,like your comment below about Muslims!
