There is ample evidence as to the cause of the crusades. The people of Europe became tired of the continual incursons of the Muslims into their society and their attempts to put them under Islamic domination. So they decided to fight back and drive them out of their countries. It must have been ok in your eyes for Muslims to invade other free societies and try and force their religion on these countries. Then gripe and complain to be victums when the tables are turned. Typical I'd say.
