Dear Richard Lion Heart,

i have more than one thing to say about your comment:

1- where did the Byzantine empire origin from? Europe i think. so ,what was it doing in Egypt, syria , Palestine and........? what would you call this? does it have a name other than conquer?

2- why did you blame muslims for conquering Egypt, Syria, Palestine and............? was it allowed only for the Great Empire?

3- Why didnt the Egyptian Christians, followers of the empire defend it against the mslim conquer? was it because Western Christians treated Eastern Christians as their inferiors? or was it because muslims allowed them to live and work in peace just like muslims? Besides, muslims defended non muslims who were not asked to take part in wars in exchange of a sum of money.( America did the same to liberate Kuwait in 1991, i mean got paid for this)

4- as for your nickname, doesnt it mean that you still believe in crusades and thier leaders?

enjoyed your message . answer soon
