Was there ever an Army that didn't rape?
"Yet again, the Crusaders went on the rampage in Lisbon, burning, killing and raping. The same performance was repeated in Marseilles, Sicily and Cyprus. Probably they were just practicing and getting in the right mood for massacring Moslems upon arrival in the Holy Land."

Not that you need to bother educating yourself, this is a less Euro-Christian centric way to look at the situation. This is so strange. It actually seems the like the Crusades were a TERRORIST war. Saladin and the sophisticated arms of the Arabs meant that every single major battle was one by the Arabs, but the Christians would strike quickly, slaughtering women and children and men, harassing the enemy. Exactly the opposite as today.
