+  ISIS flogs the Crusades myth

  • Description: In the hours following the attacks on Paris, ISIS claimed they had “cast terror into the hearts of the crusaders in their very own homeland.” Osama bin Laden made similar statements following 9/11. In 2001, Bill Clinton said that stories of Christian atrocities during the Crusades are “still being told today in the Middle East and we are still paying for them.” Are Islamic terrorists really motivated by a centuries-long grudge for the Crusades? In short, no. Steve Weidenkopf explains why.
