Wow. Some of you REALLY need history lessons, don't you? Yaakov, I'm shocked that a Jew would know nothing of Constantine and the Byzantine Roman re-occupation of the Holy Land from the 4th-7th centuries. In post #9, I was talking about the 4th century EBIONITES, not Muslims, stupid. Muslims are post-Mohammed, meaning 7th century onward. In fact Yaakov, you make my point FOR me about the difference between peaceful Ebionites and militant Muslims. The 4th century Ebionites nomads were peaceful people until the Byzantine Romans began slaughtering them for being Heathens. But after 3 centuries of continuous murder, theft and genocide by the Byzantines, the Ebionites converted to Mohammed's Islam and became Muslims. And then those Muslims went marching, scimitar in hand. The Muslims in Europe resulted in the 11th century onward Crusades you mention. But those Muslims would never have gone marching if not for the Christian Byzantines under Constantine who preceded them. DOH.
