The total estimated total deaths was 1.5 million so far.
Many more deaths are coming in the near future.
Any religion that demands earthly vengeance and retribution for any reason is not a religion at all, but a mental illness and should be treated as such.
The Crusades were sponsored by the Catholic church and the goal was to eliminate the Jews, Muslims and heretics in Europe and the middle east. The campaign against the Muslims was not unprovoked aggression but a delayed response to Muslim aggression. The area around Jerusalem is conquered, reconquered, conquered again and reconquered again.
The Crusades are far from over and are still in progress under different disquises in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran. Stay tuned for more bloodshed.
Sooner than we expect, nuclear weapons will be introduced into the equation.
In an age of nuclear weapons, the dangers of a God belief far outweigh its usefulness.
