"What if the Crusades' history was told from an Arab perspective? In fact, in 2016 al-Jazeera TV did just that. It released a four-episode documentary on the Crusades, and the trailer introduced the subject in the following words:

"In the history of conflict between East and West. The mightiest battle between Christianity and Islam; a holy war in the name of religion. For the first time, the story of the Crusades from an Arab perspective."…"

If al-Jazeera reported that the sun was going to rise in the east tomorrow morning I would have to wake up early just to check. LOL

Well at least it isn't from the Marxist perspective… which seems to be all the history I have read lately.

Is there any other history being written now?

Nice article, thanks for sharing. For those interested The Crusades Through Arab Eyes by Amin Maalouf is a very good read
