Jerusalem was captured by the Christian Crusaders in the First Crusade. It was captured by the Muslims in the Second Crusade.

They killed them: men, women, children.
Tunisia was the location of the Eighth Crusade. The leaders on the side of the Crusaders were Louis IX and Charles I. The leader of the Muslims was Muhammad I al-Mustansir.
The Crusaders, upon entering Jerusalem slaughtered just about everyone they came across. Crusaders have noted in their diaries from the period that the smell was nauseating and their horses were ankle-deep in blood wherever they went. They also killed local Christians because it was impossible to recognize what religion any particular civilian in the city was and argued that "God would sort out the saved from the damned".
Pope Urban II called for the first crusade on Nov 27, 1095.
He led a very large crusade of Christian warriors, known as the Crusaders, into battle against the Muslims in order to "cleanse" the Holy Land from the Muslims who were expanding rapidly and gaining extensive control. The four Crusades caused thousands of unnecessary deaths of innocents and warriors alike.
They didn't exactly 'attack Palestine'. The mission of the Christian Crusaders was to rescue the Holy Land from the hands of whoever was there and was not Christian. They generally slaughtered any Muslims and Jews they met on the way.

There were no crusaders fought in Europe there were all fought in the middle east and Turkey.... There was a time when the Muslims did control Spain but it's not a Crusade.... Crusade even means "Holy War".
Badly, to be honest. When the Crusaders first conquered Jerusalem, they butchered almost all its inhabitants, including all its Jewish citizens. They also were supposed to help the Christian Byzantine Empire against the Muslims, but ended up directing the whole (fourth) Crusade against it, largely destroying its capital Constantinople.
The Muslims controlled the Holy Land long before the first Crusaders. The advancing Muslims conquered northern Palestine in 636 and Jerusalem in 638. They controlled the whole of Syria, Palestine and Egypt by 641. Christians and Jews were permitted to remain, subject to payment of a poll tax. In 1099, the Christians of the First Crusade took Jerusalem and massacred the population, which was predominantly Muslim. They created several small Crusader states, notably the Kingdom… Read More
The crusades started because the Pope wanted to reclaim the Holy Land from Muslim control. While there were actually many small crusades, there are four major ones that stick out in history. The first crusade, from 1095-1099, is considered a Christian success because the crusaders were able to reclaim Jerusalem. The second crusade, from 1145-1148 was fought to claim Edessa from the Muslims. The crusaders lost the battle. The third crusade, from 1187-1191, was fought… Read More
The crusades affected the Muslims because the Muslims had what the crusaders wanted the crusaders went to war against the Muslims trying to get that "thing" back, which was Constantinople, and the crusaders killed half of Muslims to try and get Constantinople back.
The crusades were effective in cementing the hatred of Christians by Muslims. (The Christian performed horrendous deeds of cruelty).
The reconquista was the crusade to drive out the Muslims from Spain
In the first crusade they fought over and through Jerusalem. After capturing it from the Muslims, the crusaders established some counties and other minor areas.
Well, in the Crusade of the Christians vs. the Muslims, the Christian lord was Richard the Lionhearted, and the Muslim lord was Saladin.
the holy land
The first crusade
The first crusade was the most successful one because at that time the Muslims were not united under one strong leader and could not effectively fight against the Europeans, therefore the crusaders managed to capture Jerusalem and a number of other Muslim cities.
To drive the Muslims from the Holy Land and return it to Christian control.
The Third Crusade lead to: The Treaty of Jaffa, which guaranteed safe passage of Christians and Muslims through Palestine and a 3 year truce between the armies Most of the Levantine coast, from Tyre to Jaffa, returned to Crusader control Crusaders recaptured Tiberias and some inland territories from the Muslims The capture of Cyprus and the establishment of Kingdom of Cyprus
the muslims won the eighth crusade
The First Crusade.
Because mainly all crusaders or Franks/Franj should have been Christians and Jerusalem was were Christ was said to have been most of his life, in that day and age people were very religious and the thoughta Muslims and other non Christians controlling the city also scared and angered them. There had also been rumours that Muslims had been mistreating Christian pilgrims and this, again angered them.
From the Old French 'croissade', meaning '(war) of the cross' i.e. a Christian campaign. That's why Muslims get the wrong impression when we in the West talk of, for instance, a crusade against bad parking!
By now, the first of the five armies of the First Crusade were on their way to Constantinople. Godfrey of Bouillon arrived first. Soon after him, Bohemond of Taranto arrived, followed by Count Raymond IV of Toulouse. After that, Count Robert II arrived. Last came Duke Robert of Normandy. Together, they attacked Muslim lands. The city of Nicaea was taken first. Following that, the crusaders attacked and captured Antioch. Nearly all of the Muslims inside… Read More

Crusaders return to Europe. 5. Those who stayed set up four Christian kingdoms. 6. Muslim Turks repeatedly attacked these kingdoms. 7. European Christians then launched more crusades.
Muslims regained the territory they lost in the 1st crusade
The Muslims did.
There were several reasons that crusaders had for joining the crusade. 1) Wealth-many went over for gaining wealth from the gold and money that the Muslims had. 2) Glory- many went over thinking that if they killed as many Muslims they could, that they would have all the glory. 3)Forgivness- many went to Jerusalem to seek forgivness from their sins. 4) Religion- many went to bring their religion to the Muslims and thought that they… Read More
Well , I like Penis's so yeh. Muslims had control of the third crusade but not my big penis
The actions of the Muslims was to fight against the invading Crusaders.
to retake Jerusalem form the Muslims
The crusaders foes where the Muslims and Jews.
I believe that Crusades means a holy war lead by a Christian to recover the Holy Land from the Muslims. It was a military-religious expedition organized by the Pope from a Roman Catholic Church. Christians made an attempt to recover Christian territories lost to the infidels. It was all about recapturing "Christian" lands that had been invaded by Muslims.
Most of the crusades we think of were wars with Christians on one side and Muslims on the other, so the answer would be Christianity and Islam. There were other crusades, however, with other religious intent. The Albigensian Crusade was one of several against Christian heretics. The Hussite Crusade was against protestants (Catholic vs. Protestant). There were crusades against pagans (Christian vs. pagan), and there were crusades against Mongol hordes (Christian vs. Mongol). There was… Read More
the Muslims won
i think it was the Muslims
he went on the crusade because he wanted the holy land because he was a christian. it was said that Jesus died there so he wanted it back from the Muslims.
The armies that the Crusaders were fighting were mostly compromised of either Muslims or Christians. They were claiming to be fighting for religion.
A: Jews were easier and less dangerous opponents than the Muslim armies would be. They were thought to be responsible for the crucifixion, and they were more immediately visible than the far-away Muslims. Many people wondered why they should travel thousands of miles to fight non-believers when there were already non-believers closer to home. It is also likely that the crusaders were motivated by a need for money. The Crusades gave the knights and their… Read More
The Christians where the Crusaders as they started the Crusades
They were the opposition to the Crusaders. The Crusaders wanted to regain the Holy Lands for Christianity. The Muslims were on the losing side at first and the Crusader armies established themselves in many key cities. Eventually they were displaced and the Muslims took back what was after all their land.
