At last a truthful version of the terrible wrongs committed by all sides during the Crusades. In between this chaos some people came to the fore and history became slightly changed for the better.

The feud was and is not between Christians and Muslims, but between good and wrong from any perspective. It is not religion that is a problem, but fanaticism. This viewpoint is still the real evil in this world.

Used to the good, religion can be a powerful draw card to make this Earth a haven of peace through cooperation with each other, with all living in prosperity.
