Crusade Myths

Many believe the common untrue myths and misconceptions about the crusades, such as that the crusades were a way to make fast money or that because the westerners raided Muslim territory the Muslims now want payback with terrorism. But any true historian can tell you that going on a crusade was no way to make fast money. Most crusaders ended up with debt and mortgages after they returned from battle, that is even if they didn’t die on a crusade. The Muslims barely even remembered the crusades in their history since it was such a failure on the crusaders part. They only remember it now because the westerners have talked about it so much.

There are many myths in this world, some of which are better left unheard and unbelieved like the myths about the crusades.
