Actually, you inadvertantly hit the nail on the head!
The crusades didn't start for 200 years after Omar conquered Jerusalem. What took so long?
Simple. The conquering Muslim armies swept across Europe, wiping out the liberal elites. When the liberal establishment had ceased to exist, all
that was left were the fanatics and conservatives. The European armies were completely outclassed in both technology and logistics. But they
excelled in two other dimensions: naval supply lines, and ferocity.
Islam's war with not-Islam is a 1400-year old dialectic.
Think about it: Islam swept across Europe, killing or enslaving every prince, except those who were too ferocious to subdue. Men like Vlad Tepecsh,
whom the Turks called "The Little Dragon:" Dracula.
The reason whites are so prone to violence and blood-feuds goes back to the fact that their culture was almost
wiped out by the technologically
superior Islamic civilization. Spain would have been conquered, but for the blood-lust of El Cid. ... and france would have been, except for the
ferocity of Roland. The Viennese held the line at their city gates, as did the Romans.
Remember, Christianity originally had SEVEN popes; seven patriarchs of the original mother churches. Five of the others were obliterated. The pope in
Rome, and the patriarch of Constantinople were the only ones to survive.
The reason those two are so weird is because their thrones are the only two bits of Roman civilization to survive the "first contact" with Islam.
