A great summary of the aggressive, expansionary cult that is Islam. From a post on Sodahead.
Muslims historically peaceful? Don't make me laugh.
To put matters into some historical perspective (which Muslims and their liberal apologists are very loath to do), the Crusader occupation of Jerusalem lasted less than 100 years. Subsequent to that, they managed to hold on to a few cities on the eastern Mediterranean coast (principally Acre) for another 100 years or so.
Meanwhile, what had the Muslims been doing? Well, hundreds of years before the first Crusade, the Moors were busy attacking Spain and France. They were only stopped at Tours in 732 (about 90 miles south of Paris) by Charles Martel, the grandfather of Charlemagne. That prevented the occupation of France, but Spain remained under Moorish rule for about 700 years, until well after the Crusades were over.
In the eastern Mediterranean, the Turks (not to be outdone) took over Constantinople in 1453 (and still have it), and then went on to conquer and occupy the rest of Greece until the early 1800s, as well as the Balkans, Georgia, Armenia and parts of south Russia. The Turks made incursions as far as Austria and were only stopped at the gates of Vienna in the late 1600s.
Oh, and speaking of Armenia, don't forget the Armenian genocide of 1915-1921, when the Ottoman Turks murdered about 1.5 million Armenians.
Since its inception, Islam has spent FAR more time invading and occupying Europe than vice-versa.
