    Obama’s Moral Idiocy By Dennis Prager. the Crusaders’ war in the Holy Land is a poor example of evil in the name of Christ. suffice it to say that it is now acknowledged among scholars. There is a major moral crisis in one religion on earth today — Islam. To say so is not to get on a high horse. It is to identify violent Islam as the greatest evil in the world since Nazism and Communism. Dennis Prager’s latest book, “Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph,” was published by HarperCollins. A major new history of the Crusades with an unprecedented wide scope, told in a tableau of portraits of people on all sides of the wars, from the New York Times best-selling author of The Templars. For more than 1, years, Christians and Muslims lived side by side, sometimes at peace and sometimes at war.
