Western Civilisation

Join Gab (@StFerdinandIII) Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed.  Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.  Raising the alarm about the fascism called Submission since 2000.

Witless Westerners, the 'sack of Jerusalem', and Moslem propaganda.

Only a Phd or politician could opine that the 1099 retaking of Jerusalem was a 'slaughter'.

by Ferdinand III



From 632 AD to 1099 AD, Moslems slaughtered, conquered, sex-slaved, slave-traded and wiped out Christians and Christianity, from Arabia to Switzerland. Millions were forcibly converted to the moon cult, millions more killed or enslaved. Yet the 1099 re-capture of formerly Christian Jerusalem is portrayed by Western Phd's [pretty happy dudes, piled on high and deep]; as the animating act of Moslem distrust of the West. 400 years after the Moslem Jihad had begun the process of eradicating Christianity, destroying civilization, and effacing Christians and their [to quote the Koran] satan created theology; the Westerners or 'Franks' are to blame for Moslem violence? Anyone proposing this must contain a brain roughly similar to that of an ape. The siege of Jerusalem may have resulted in the deaths of 3.000 Moslems and a few Jews. It was benign by comparison to Moslem atrocities against Christians.


The crusaders, though, did not kill most of Jerusalem’s inhabitants as historians like Steven Runciman suggest. Translations from documents written shortly after the Christian conquest of Jerusalem prove that to be true. According to the Gesta Francorum, ‘our men took many prisoners, both men and women in the Temple. They killed whom they chose, and whom they chose, they saved alive.’

A letter written by a Jewish Chronicler in the summer of 1100 suggested that there were many Jews who weren’t slaughtered when the Christians captured Jerusalem. ‘News still reaches us that among those who were redeemed from the Franks and remained in Ascalon, some are in danger of dying of want.’

Many Jews and even Muslims were taken as captives. It's quite possible that more were taken captive than killed. The crusaders forced them to collect the bodies, remove them from the city and burn them. Most likely, the crusaders also had their captives rebuild what had been destroyed during the siege.”


The sack of Jerusalem by a Crusading army soon to be caught in a pincer movement by an Egyptian Fatimid relief force, and a Moslem garrison still committed to the fight, had little choice but to eradicate all opposition. The Jews as well, were collaborators with the Moslems. It is all fine and good for fat patty Westerners on their couches to opine the usual platitudes. But after 2 years of fighting Moslems, 50% casualties, the threat of annihilation between a besieged and a coming Moslem relief force, the normal middle age imperatives and laws of 3 days of pillage and plunder most certainly do make the 'sack' of Jerusalem a rather benign and by contrast with Moslem atrocities, rather un-bloody event.
