The Crusades is a fascinating history of a subject that was quite new to me, as Americans rarely study the Crusades in school. Despite the title, the expert commentators represent a balance of French and English historians, as well as Muslim scholars from various Middle Eastern universities. Most of the documentary series consists of historical re-enactment of papal enclaves, battles, sieges, treaty signings and other historical events. The filmmakers use a series of maps to plot the progress of European occupation of Jerusalem and the Levantine* coast, as well the eventual liberation of these territories in the 13th century.
The documentary leaves absolutely no doubt that the Crusades were an imperialist campaign of colonization – and not religious wars, as is commonly claimed. Whenever European crusaders conquered a specific city or region, they indiscriminately slaughtered most of the inhabitants, whether they were Muslims, Jews or fellow Christians. The entire fourth Crusade (1203) was devoted to sacking the greatest Christian city in the world (Constantinople), whose residents were mainly Byzantine Greeks.
Part 4 is my favorite because it focuses on the role of the Crusades and Muslim influence in facilitating the European Renaissance of the 14th-15th centuries. When the Crusades began in 1085, the vast majority of Europeans (99%) were illiterate, whereas Middle East cities enjoyed an advanced flourishing civilization (as did India, China, Africa and North and South America prior to European colonization). When occupying crusaders were finally defeated and forced to return to Europe in 1291, they took with them advanced knowledge of Arab military tactics and agriculture, sugar cultivation, medicine, algebra, glass manufacturing and Greek philosophers ( whose work had been translated and preserved by Muslim scholars.
Part 1 – covers the role of Pope Gregory and Pope Irwin in instigating the disastrous Peoples Crusade and the first Crusade (1086-1099), resulting in the sacking and occupation of Jerusalem (lasting nearly 200 years).
Part 2 – covers the fragmented Muslim resistance to the expansion of European occupation, hindered by both religious (Sunni vs Shia) conflict and tribal rivalries. It’s during this period (1100-1127) the term hashshashin (origin of the English words assassin and hashish) came into usage, owing to the Shia assassins hired to secretly kill Sunni military commanders. Between 1127-1143 a Muslim revival led to the liberation of numerous crusader strongholds, and the launch of a second crusade by Pope Eugene, Louis VII of France and Conrad III of Germany.
Part 3 – describes the rise of Salah Ad-Din (known in in Europe as Saladin), who unified rival Muslim armies and by 1187 retook all crusader strongholds except Jerusalem. This led to the launch of the third Crusade by Philip II (France), Frederick I (Germany) and Richard the Lion Hearted (England) This was followed by the fourth Crusade, which sacked Constantinople; the failed fifth Crusade (1213); the sixth Crusade in which Frederick II (Germany) retook Jerusalem by treaty and the failed seventh Crusade, led by Louis IX of France (1248). In 1244, Muslim armies retook Jerusalem, which remained under their control until it became part of the British protectorate of Palestine with the defeat of the Ottoman Empire.
Part 4 – in addition to outlining the cultural riches Europe gained from the Crusades, Part 4 also explores how Europe’s medieval colonization of the Middle East laid the groundwork for the eventual European colonization of North Africa and the Middle East (in 1917), with the formation of the state of Israel in 1948 representing a major milestone in this re-colonization.
*Levantine – a term describing a region on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea north of the Arabian Peninsula and south of Turkey, usually including the area of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria.

Following the breaking report from Fox News that third-party investigators in the Seth Rich murder have linked the former high level DNC staffer with Wikileaks as the possible source of over 44,000 emails, we thought it appropriate to post the following video.
While we’re not claiming there was any direct involvement by the DNC or Party heads with the killing of Rich on a D.C. street, we’re also not going to rule it out because… well, just see for yourself:
Nothing makes sense anymore. No wonder many of us retreat to conspiracy theories and evil entities. How else can we explain the evil that humanity does to other species and to itself?

We are being attacked from all angles, each and every one of us, every single day of our lives.
How clever the powers that shouldn’t be are, they have brainwashed us completely. We cannot even see that we are being culled.
People have strong feelings about many things; they may have thoughts in the back of their minds, thoughts that won’t go away.
Things just don’t seem right but they can’t quite put their fingers on what is actually wrong, they can’t quite grasp it.
Then the thought fades as everyday life takes over.
They may feel that governments aren’t doing anything to help them and whoever is in power nothing ever seems to change. Why is that?
They may see religion as a control system that is fundamentally flawed and causes more harm than good.
They do not believe in war and yet there are wars going on all the time.
They may not really understand why fluoride is added to water.
They may feel chemtrails are normal, aren’t they?
They may see that vaccination regulations are getting out of hand and people are being brainwashed to vaccinate at every opportunity for every little thing and that mandatory vaccinations can’t be right.
They may feel GMO crops are not good for us and the chemicals used on these crops are toxic.
They may think healthcare has become far too expensive and that it is being controlled by large pharmaceutical companies and there should be a better way.
They may believe we are now in a nanny state with too many rules and regulations that are not really beneficial to humanity.
They may see too many legal controls in place that do not benefit the general population they seem to benefit large corporations instead.
They may feel banks are ripping us all off, not really helping us. Banks seem to want us to get deeper in debt.
They may see the breakdown of family traditions and wonder why?
They realize work has become too important and is gradually taking attention away from their loved ones.
They may feel the world has gone mad and chaos is all around.
They may see injustice all around them, the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.
They may see health services failing; they may see family and friends succumb to drugs and alcohol addictions.
They see people becoming more and more stressed and miserable with their daily lives.
They see homeless people living on the streets and they try to avoid them.
They see nature slowly being destroyed and manipulated.
They keep losing more and more freedom every day and there always seems to be a logical explanation for it, it’s for our safety after all.
All this new technology is for our benefit it’s all to make our lives much easier isn’t it?
They see all these things and more, day in day out.
Slowly these ideas seep into their subconscious minds.
Somehow they cannot gather all of their feelings together, they see them as disconnected events all engineered by different sections of society.
They feel that they must be wrong, if all these areas of concern are opposed to their internal intuition and feelings. They get a sick feeling in their stomach and they try not to think about it all.
They feel that it must be them that are on the wrong track, so they slowly and silently forget about their feelings. Push them to the back of their minds.
They lack trust in themselves, they have been conditioned, manipulated, controlled into being obedient, they are frightened to speak up, no one else seems to be concerned, why should they be?
If something was really wrong wouldn’t someone be doing something about it, wouldn’t someone be telling everyone?
They continue watching these events unfold before their eyes. They do nothing.
They feel as if they are in a movie and everything is out of control.
They cannot seem to connect the dots.
The truth is too unbearable to imagine.
Could something be out there trying to destroy mankind as we know it? Could we really be in danger? Could all these events be controlled by the same source?
Denial takes over it is all too ridiculous to believe. No, this can’t possibly be happening. Can it?
They switch on the television and slowly fall back to sleep.

Mainstream media has been sent into a frenzy as Donald Trump’s White House grants White House press credentials to InfoWars, the media outlet owned and operated by Alex Jones.
This means that an InfoWars reporter now has the option to be present at all White House press conferences and briefings just as those from CNN, the New York Times and state-owned British Broadcaster BBC currently are and have been for decades.
Whilst InfoWars does not have a fraction of the budget available to corporate media outlets like CNN and MSNBC or state-run broadcasters like the BBC or Canada’s CBC, InfoWars will now sit beside their reporters with equal access to White House events.
This is objectively a victory for alternative-media and for the ‘little guy’. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the editorial line of InfoWars, it is high time for White House press credentials to reflect the popularity and influence of one’s outlet rather than the wealth of those who fund the outlet.
Donald Trump’s White House would be well advised to continue along this line and grant further press credentials to media outlets that represent the future rather than the past.
Now watch Alex Jones describe the occasion as only he can.
