seems believable
14 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

History Channel's the Crusades Crescent and Cross is about the 11th century Catholic crusades brought about by religions politicizing of beliefs based on bad intelligence and misinformation by Pope Urban. A gullible and zealot population of poor and rich alike get together to take over the holy land by force and war. As in every war, the atrocities committed remain the responsibility of those that do them and those that sent them. Since each religious group involved worships the same God, it is very strange that they would be fighting each other in the name of that same God. You get some pretty good accounts from both the Catholic side and the Muslim side, not much from the Jewish side. The take away is that religious wars are for the ignorant and the bloody thirsty.
