Resuming the Crusades?

Reader comment on item: The Pentagon Looks at the Koran
in response to reader comment: The Crusades continue!

Hi

Interesting idea. While I don't think the original concept behind the Crusades (reconquest of lands taken from the East Roman Empire) would work today, there's something to this idea.

And using modern technology to show the advantages of Christianity over Islam just might fit the bill. Give Muslims an alternative, let them discuss freely, and then adopt the religion that seems best to them.

There are obstacles, however. Turkey, who brags about trying to join the European Union, just obstructed a Christian television station from broadcasting into Turkey. No explanation, their sattelite deal was just cancelled.

I hope increased freedom in the Middle East will open new opportunities.
