Barack Obama suggested that the Crusades were somehow similar to, or even a justification for, 21st-century Islamic terrorism. That is so far from the truth, it is laughable. It shows how little Obama understands history, or maybe it shows how he intentionally skews it.
The Crusades were appropriate for times, but poorly executed. They were a response to Islam’s conquest of the Holy Land. Unfortunately, the Crusades failed and Islamic terrorists are still marauding and plundering, just like their 11th century counterparts.
Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam produced this video to explain to children (and Democrats) the difference between the Crusades and Islamic terrorism.
It’s a short, five minute video that points out the fact that the Crusades were a blip in time compared to the relentless onslaught of Islamic terrorists.
