What were the religious wars by Christians over Palestine called?
Beginning in the eleventh century the Christian Crusades began to save the Holy Land from Islamic forces. Until the middle of the 13th century, the Pope and monarchs of Europe led Christian armies to keep Jerusalem safe from from Muslim armies. Whatever successes the Crusaders accomplished would however not be long lived.
The Muslims had control over Palestine, where Jesus lived and died (especially Jerusalem, which is located in Palestine). The Crusades were an attempt to put Christians back in control of Palestine. The Crusades were for the most part a failed military disaster, and finally the Christians and the Muslims came to an agreement: The Muslims would continue to control Palestine, and the Christians were allowed to visit there and make pilgrimages to Holy Sites in… Read More

The christians have a mission to spread the word of god all over the world. It is a mission.
The short answer is yes. They were called the Holy Crusades in their time and people were called to battle from the pulpits of churches. People who went to fight were absolved of all former sins and were considered soldiers of the Church and were thought to be fighting for Jesus, God and "to free the Holy Land from Mohammedan tyranny."

They are fighting over land. Israel occupies Historic Palestine, a holy land for not only Jews, but Muslims and Christians as well.

It really depends on what you mean by 'Palestine'? There is no country today called Palestine, but in the past there were various territories referred to as Palestine, though it was never a well-defined independent country.

That territory today includes the countries of… Read More
