Modern Egypt

Excerpt from Modern Egypt: Egypt During the Crusades, Rise of the Ottoman Power, Napoleon in Egypt, the Rule of the Khedives, Discovering the Source of the Nile, Archaeological Research and Discovery The first efiorts having been crowned with success, the Moslems soon became convinced of the fulfilment of the prophecy that Allah had given them the world and wished them to subdue all unbelievers. Under the Caliph Omar, the Arabs had become a religious-political community of warriors, whose mission it was to conquer and plunder all civilised and cultured lands and to un furl the banner of the crescent. They believed that Paradise is under the shadow of the sword. In this belief the followers of Muhammed engaged in battle with out fear or anxiety, spurred to great deeds, reckless in the face of danger, happy to die and pass to the delights of Paradise. The holy war became an armed prop aganda pleasing to Allah. It was, however, a form of propaganda quite unknown and amazing to Christendom. In the course of two centuries the crescent had sup planted the cross. Of what avail was the peaceful mis sionary's preaching if province after province and coun try after country were taken possession of by the new religion that forced its way by means of fire and sword? Was it not natural that Christian Europe should con ceive the idea of doing for their religion what the Mos lems did for Islam? And that, following the example of Moslems in their holy war, Christians should emulate them in the Crusades?
