  1. Funny hearing Al-Salami complain about Christians taking lands first inhabited by Christians and then conquered by Muslims. May we be talking about the reconquista of Egypt, Anatolia, and the the Levant in 200 years

  2. I appreciate your work, however I take issue with this account. I did not see a single reference to the centuries of raids and pillaging in southern and central Europe that led to the buildup of anguish and tensions that led to the eventual Crusades that were backed by both public opinion and the Lordship; not merely based on religious, monetary, territorial, or other gains.

  3. The Zengis started the fight back against the crusaders followed by Saladin, Qutuz, Baibers then finally by Qalawun who ended their reign.

  4. I love each and every video you guys post. But please don't ever recommend Magellan to me again. I tried it with your link, and canceled almost right away. Atleast in terms of Pre-Modern War History, they are aweful, and any time spent attempting to watch on their platform should be spent here, on your channel(s).

  5. ‘Crusaders’ still has a negative connotation in most Arab countries even by some Arab christians and jews. I don’t think it is just about religious wars but about the “Barbarism” of these soldiers. Levante muslims did not really understand who these people and what they were after. Most invaders were after money but crusaders were not and were truly religious christians devoted to their cause (like early muslim soldiers). I can imagine that early Mesopotamian and Levante (pre-Islamic) populations who had to witness the early muslim conquest of the fertile crescent have thought the same about Peninsular Arab muslim soldiers who were less “civilized” compared to Syrian or Iraqi societies.

    It would be interesting to see the early perspective of the fertile crescent populations regarding the muslim conquest of their lands.

  6. The manga and anime Altair: A Record of Battles (Shoukoku no Altair) really took the Muslim perspective almost precisely as laid out in the plot and story, and also how it is explained in this video. It is however still a fiction; many events and historical figures portrayed are greatly exaggerated or changed to fit the narrative of the story.

  7. An addition to the conclusion "Some Muslim politicians still refer to…" please include G.W. Bush too, who word by word said it.

  8. Re your last sentence, is it really only the arabs who think the crusades haven't ended? I seem to remember everyone from Bush to Blair to Rice and Armstrong bandying the term and also saying things like 'respond to attack on the civilised world'.

    The arabs, nay, the remaining four fifths of the world would not be wrong to observe that Europeans have been war-mongers, mercantilists and colonisers for most of the past millenia and the veneer of moral superiority they wear is thin.

  9. They all seem to ignore the fact that they themselves was conqueror's of the christian world you could argue that the seeds of the crusades started with the umayyad's as records of there conquest might have still been around at least in the papacy's vast libraries

  10. 8:02 So the Turks and Muslims got a taste of what they did to the Byzantines/Romans. They continuously attacked their territories while the Byzantine empire was divided in leadership. And don't forget how it was Islamic Arabs who were the aggressors when they took North Africa and the European controlled Iberian peninsula yet they complain when Europeans finally responded after 700 years of Islamic aggression? Give me a break.

  11. It is a fact that; In the Middle Ages, the Turks defended the Crusades. They were the most warlike people of the Muslims. Although the Ottoman Empire was once only a small Turkish state, it defeated the Crusaders many times. There was no power to defeat the Ottomans in the field battle.

  12. Next do a video about muslim perspective in the reconquista. I am from Portugal and I have surely Muslim ancestors.

  13. Holy war doesn't mean Jihad. It's the crusaders who used the term to refer crusade after taking cross, killed millions of Muslims..

  14. The thing every Frankish children learn the most at school about the crusade episodes, is that moment when Saladin sends his own doctor to diagnose and treat Baudouin IV le Lépreux, king of Jerusalem. This event shows Saladin was a honorable enemy, even if he was a sarrasin de ses maures.
