in response to reader comment: Islam is the true victim....have you ever read history? Islamism has always been Terrorism

I believe you need to ask yourself who is writing the history you are reading. I would have to believe that the Christians were probably being called barbarians and terrorists on the other side. No conflict on this scale is ever black and white. Try to consider all points of view. This is hard though because you have been biased to this topic whether you would realize it or not. I'm sure I have too, there is no way around it. Please just consider this before making judgments on people.
