They refer to 'The Talisman,' which depicts the Muslims as sophisticated and civilized, and the Crusaders are all brutes and barbarians. It has nothing to do with reality."


The reality was they all were brutes and barbarians. Wink

I agree, both sides were uncivilized, but it seems that Saudi money is pouring into the movie industry to misrepresent history as muslims usually do locally.

Of course the poor Templars are always the bad guys.  I agree about Guy of Lusignan he was a rather unsavoury character.

I wonder how it will play the Orthodox there.  They'll just probably not exist - be replaced by Catholics or whatever.

Hmmmm... Anyone know what the Orthodox were doing in the Holy Land during the Crusades?  I've never thought about it, just curious...

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

  Granted, the Normans were not the most civilized people on Earth (my great-whatever uncle led a large army in the 1st Crusades).

  But I think that the Muslims will try to make Peter the Hermit's Crusade seem like the norm, which would be greatly false.
