Hi DNM, I don't know how and why people forget, jihad or holy war to spread Islam started right from Mohammad's time. Simply put, it was because of these jihads, crusade were started in the 11th century! Jihads took Muslims to Asia(Persia and India), Europe and Africa!

So almost 400 years of jihads were forerunners of crusades!! Is there any doubt about it or the Muslim invasions by jihad don't count in Muslim and Western apologists' minds!!
