From the Paper:

"During the period referred to historically in the Western World as the Medieval and Early Modern Ages, religious leaders with tremendous social authority under that of the great Monarchs initiated wars that lasted for centuries and which destroyed the lives of generations of human beings on two diverse and far-removed continents. Beginning in the late 12th century, the Christian Church initiated a war on foreign soil against peoples who bore no threat to the Western World primarily to capture lands referenced in a Bible of dubious origin, at best. For several centuries, Western warriors wrought savagery and murderous rage against men, women, and children in the Middle East, culminating even in a Children's Crusade toward the end of that period. In fact, the peoples of Arabia had committed no crime against the West, but merely differed in their religious beliefs."
