So what is the difference between the Arab invasion of the Middle East in 633CE and the crusades?

Let me help you: Your Allah demands that you invade the lands of the infidels so he can get 1/5 of the loot. And who says that islam was not spread by the sword?

As for the crusades, they were very much conducted despite Christian teachings, and I'm not even a Christian.

So who is really the person who posted this post, because he ain't you!
