Battle cry "Deus vult" (Latin for "God wills it")  at the declaration of the First Crusade by Pope Urban II at the Council of Clermont in 1095 

Pope Urban Preaches The First Crusade (1095) In response to requests from the Byzantine Empire for mercenaries to help them fight the Sejuk Turks, who had overrun the heart of Asia Minor and taken much of the Holy Land in the decades after defeating the Byzantines at Manzikert in 1071, Pope Urban II (1088–1099) called for an armed pilgrimage to Jerusalem to free the Holy Land from the hands of the Saracens.

It has been suggested this Crusade by Catholics and Orthodox, was a covert and cunning attempt by Pope Urban to reunite both religions back into one, and perhaps seeing this the Orthodox only help to start the crusade more than help finish it.

Peter the Hermit returns joining the Princes Crusade beginning the First Crusade proper.


Western Leaders in First Crusade

1) Raymond IV of Toulouse,  (the knights of Provence)

2) Bohemond of Taranto & Tancred, (Normans of southern Italy)

(all were offered remission of sins by the Pope for going to war).

Eastern Leaders in First Crusade:

1) Alexios I Komnenos

2) Tatikios

3) Manuel Boutoumites

4) Constantine of Armenia

Notice this is after the 1054 schism where they both together are still united in killing, murdering and destroying. Alexios forced the crusader armies from Europe to pledge all future reclaimed land back to the Eastern Empire (him) as they arrived one army at a time and were vulnerable to this "persuasion".

12th century:  (1101 AD to 1200 AD)


Dark Ages

1 the period in western Europe between the fall of the Roman Empire and the high Middle Ages, c.500–1100 ad, during which Germanic tribes, and the Vikings,  swept through Europe and North Africa, often attacking and destroying towns and settlements. It was judged to have been a time of relative unenlightenment. Essentially it is the time when heathen tribes did most of the killing instead of the pseudo Christians. 

1101-1200 - with the popularity of the Cathars. Inquisition and death sentences  become more common.

      1101 - Crusade of 1101: called: "The Crusade of the Faint-Hearted" was a minor crusade of three separate movements, organized in 1100 and 1101 in the successful aftermath of the First Crusade.

1106 - The Battle of Tinchebray.

Not one battle during the crusade was lost.

This may have been fuelled by

1)  The Great Schism

2)  several past battles with catholic invaders, such as Robert Guiscard invasion of Sicily,

3) The First Crusaders breaking the agreement to give conquered land over to the Byzantines.

4) The failure of the second crusade, making the Latins just look like dispensable failures and now thus cultural / religious invaders.

1904-1905 - The Russo-Japanese war. It has been suggested the real reason for this was that the autocratic Czar Nicholas II, had become unpopular and started this war simply to deflect criticism from himself. As this is argued as setting the stage for World War 1 and thus later World War 2 Nicholas II (known in the Russian Orthodox Church as Saint Nicholas the Passion-Bearer) has much to answer for! And totally proves the connection between Eastern Orthodoxy and war, and their claims on pacifism are entirely false!

1904-1908 - Herero and Nama genocide - committed by the Germans in Africa which may well have influenced Hitler later on, as it was also committed to make "Lebensraum" colonialist land grabbing by settlers, as in Mein Kampf.

1917 1923 - Russian Civil War /  


1917-1918 - Estonian War of Independence (thus this period of history simply being called WW2, as if German expansion was the only issue is a vast oversimplification, as Estonia, Latvia. Lithuania, Belarus, Poland and the Ukraine all wanted independence and as the Germans retreated (who wanted to take over)  and they fought Russia (who also wanted to take over)  to remain free the Orthodox may have fought the Orthodox (I am researching this now, don't quite understand yet how WW1  and The Russian Civil war and these wars of Independence crossover - very complicated to trace Orthodox troop involvement)


Estonian War of Independence animated .

Russian Revolution 1917 .

the revolution in the Russian empire in 1917, in which the tsarist regime was overthrown and replaced by Bolshevik rule under Lenin. Some say Communists murdered between 12 and 20 million Orthodox and others calling themselves Christians.

1936 1939 - Spanish Civil War.

1939–1945  -  The Second World War,  The Russians, Greeks, and many other predominantly Eastern Orthodox countries fought in World War 2. I have yet to hear of a massive doctrinal pacifist objection being put forward by the Eastern Orthodox church or clergy.

1960's - World War 3 - a chemical and abortion war begins.

​An estimated 62 million abortions have occurred since Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.

The pill is approved for contraceptive use. In my opinion world war 3 has already started and is still going on today, a chemical war to murder babies. It is little realised that unlike the first contraceptive pills the modern pills are also abortion pills using progesterone. Abortions in clinics also massively increase. The Europeans were and are killing off millions upon millions of European babies, causing a massive increase in the Muslim / Arab population of the USA and Europe, and therefore a growing crisis of culture and values in the western world.

1979 to 1989 - Soviet war in Afghanistan. The USA see this as Soviet expansionism and back the mujahideen . (see 2001) . Some believe the USA training of the mujahideen later led to the knowledge to conceive the plan of 911. It has been suggested that Osama Bin Laden was outraged by the unholy presence of the USA troops later in the Gulf War (1990 1991) in what he regarded as the holiest country on Earth (the home of Mecca), and his reward to the USA for winning the war was 911. Others think Bin Laden was simply paranoid the USA was now going to keep invading Arab countries for oil.
