On November 27, 1095, Pope Urban II stood up at the Council of Clermont in central France to make an important announcement. Persians (by whom he meant the Turks), “a people rejected by God,” had risen up against the Christians in the East, he said. It was imperative for the knighthood of Europe to rush to defend their brethren. Take up arms, he urged, and defend the faithful who were suffering unspeakable deeds at the hands of the oppressors.

The story of the First Crusade has remained largely the same ever since. The expedition that eventually reached and captured Jerusalem in 1099 was conceived by the pope, who seized the chance to encourage men in Western Europe (above all France) to march to drive the Turks back from major Christian sites. It is a story that was commemorated in chronicles, poems and songs almost as soon as the Crusaders reached the Holy City; and it is a story that has been told for generations ever since.

Lies! The Latins conspired to conquer the Orthodox lands for the relics and booty (which includes treasure AND hot Greek women!)! Killing mohammedans and liberating the land was just icing on the cake.  Soon they would try to make all Orthodox Uniates, as they only partially  accomplished at the Union of Breast.

Im glad someone did. I was trying not to laugh typing the thing.... I dont see how anyone reading it would take it seriously. Especially the "breast" part.

Just say it with exaggerated disdain... "Latin"

You really emphasize the "L"  heheh.

Ah.  Thanks for the clarification.  I understand now.  So the Crusaders were pretty much Harkonnens?
