Where is the outrage? Where the rioting? Where the defenders of religious sensibilities?

At least the Buddha statues at Bamiyan destroyed by the Taliban got SOME attention.

Back to my point of why your signature line on Roncesvalles is in error and how I have rebuked your historical scholarship with regards to thanking only the Catholics for European freedom from Islamic hegemony. You forget the 10 centuries of Byzantine Eastern Roman Greek Orthodox defense of the Eastern Front!! You forget that it was the Byzantine teaching of the Greek classics that made it's way through Europe via Moorish Spain into the Latin world. The Latins, in their dark age, would have never known of the Greek classics if not for Byzantine Greek Orthodox trade and education of Islamic scholars.

This article on Serbian Churches destroyed by Moslems is interesting. I'm going to make an educated guess and say that the majority are Orthodox and those that were not were built under Orthodox Christian tolerance. The Serbian Orthodox church is a direct offshoot of Byzantine Greek Orthodox proselytism. The Serbian Church was created by the Greek Orthodox church as the Byzantines spread the Word to the Slavs, Bulgars, Serbs, Russians, Syrians, Egyptians, etc. These were all Christian buffer states shielding Europe's Eastern Front at one time or another. It is no revelation among modern day historical scholars that Catholic histories are now known to be notorious for forgetting their Orthodox brethren's contributions in protecting Islamic incursions into the heart of Europe. But when you'd like to not accentuate the Catholic atrocities committed against the Orthodox out comes the white wash.

Your signature lines fail to mention the debt owed to the Orthodox for protecting the eastern flank of the Roman Catholic world. You also fail to address the fact that it was Roman Catholic armies that sack Constantinople in the 12th century after the Byzantine Patriarch and Basilius both pleaded to the Roman Catholic Pope for help with the Turks. Your scholarship is rebuked!! If you can even call it scholarship! You leave out half of world history and are stuck on crediting the Franks for the preservation of Western Civilization. You are in error completely. Besides it was Charles Martel that staved off the Saracens in France, not the mythical Roland or the illegitimate underling of Pippen the Short, illegitimate grandson of Martel, Charlemagne. The premise of your entire blog heading is full of wholes and based on shoddy scholarship.

I revere the Song and Roland's legend too, but that is only half of the story, Editrix. Ten centuries of Byzantine Eastern Roman protection was no small reason that Europe could even contemplate a Renaissance. And that Renaissance was largely financed on the backs of dead Byzantine Knights and Nobles. The accoutrements depicted in your imaginary artwork of Roland are largely Byzantine designs. Chivalry went west from Constantinople. When Christian Constantinople was the Jewel of Jewels of world cities Paris was a collection of mud huts on the Seine. Even the so called Islamic Renaissance was financed and created with conquered and conscripted Byzantine artisans/architects and the pillaged resources taken from them. Same for Venice and the Venetian "entrepreneurs" that inveigled Byzantine resources leading to Europe's Renaissance. Just last year a Byzantine altar cross was returned to the Patriarch of "Istanbul", after it was pillaged by the Catholic armies as they sacked Constantinople during the fourth Crusade. At least they returned it, after eight centuries of "safe keeping".

Imagine that, the Editrix in need of editing? But we all know now that you are NOT an historian. And, on top of that, you have absolutely no sense of humor to go along with you ill temper. And I know you will read this to edit it. That is a given. It is also a given that you will conveniently edit out anything that proves you are an historical neophyte. Again, your scholarship is REBUKED! You are a shrew in need of taming but I'll pass on that one.

Print this if you have any balls, Frau Frankophile.

Are these churches not all Greek Orthodox in origin? Byzantine proselytes? And, is it not true that Greek Orthodox Byzantine religious ceremonial accoutrements are just now being restored to their rightful owners from the Vatican vaults where they were held for "safe keeping" after Constantinople was sacked by the Catholics who were supposed to be helping their Orthodox brethren fend of the Turks when they were banging on the gates of Europe? Just answer the damn question. Or do like you like to do and edit everything out that makes you look bad. Talk about a double standard. YOUR SCHOLARSHIP REMAINS REBUKED!!
