Reply To: How should we deal with the topic of the Crusades, both in our own thinking and in engagement with Muslims?

Hey Hans,
I admired your response in answering this question because the topic of the Crusades has an important historical value. From your summary, the first word that came to mind was to be tolerant in dealing with the issue of the Crusades in the thinking and engagement with Muslims. I believe this is a crucial value to have because it demonstrates that there are events in our life that is uncontrollable, but how we react to them is different. We should react to this with a sense of calmness realizing that there is so much we can control and the best way to combat these problems is to react to what we can control with a tolerant attitude.
