Do you think ISIS and Taliban are reincarnation of Dark ages Crusaders and inquisitionists?
With the exception as one is Muslims and one is Christians, ISIS and Taliban have one thing in common with dark ages European crusaders and inquisitionist, they are both religion extremists group, that enforce religion law, kill people who refuse to follow their religion and church and want to invade the land of other nations, just like how ISIS and Taliban make the issue between them and US as issue between Muslim and Christians, Crusaders made the issue between Crusaders and the Moorse Empire that rule Middle East during the time, issue between Christian and Muslims.
In a broad sense yes. ISIS, however is merely a guerrilla militia and has had no success in the areas they have taken over in actually being capable of governing them whereas the Taliban WAS the governments ruling political party as well as being Islamist extremist for 3 decades in Afghanastan. Unfortuneately, many of their soldiers were trained to be good soldiers by the U.S. when they were fighting the U.S.S.R. It was the old axion " The enemy of my enemy is my friend". To your question regarding how the situation now compares to the Crusades by the Christians during the dark ages, the similarities are certainly there. The Crusaders mission was to convert Muslims to Christianity, and now the Muslim "Crusaders" are doing the same thing in reverse. It is important to remember, however that ISIS is a militia that seems to lack the coherence and ability to govern a territory once they gain control of it's people while the Taliban was both religious and political in nature.
No. ISIS and the Taliban are the reincarnation of the Muslim invaders who took over then Christian Egypt and Constantinople.
The ISIS and Taliban hate and want to kill everyone who doesn't think exactly like them, including other islamic sects. The Crusaders were simply taking back lands that were captured by muslims in the first place.
Moreover, the events of the dark Ages occurred when the concepts of humanity and equal rights were not as ingrained with the human species as they are now. The rest of the world has developed humanity and intelligence - terrorist organizations persist in not only performing acts what the rest of the world acknowledges were committed in barbaric and brutal times, but in committing even more barbaric and brutal acts.
