And the crusades never entered majority muslim regions. Those might be muslim countries today, but back then they were mostly christian.

And to add to that, the original Crusade was mostly about making the pilgrimage routes safe. Stupid muslim raiders attacked religious pilgrims, and so Mother Church felt the need to step in and safeguard the travel routes.

Christians didn't have a problem with Muslims in the Holy Land until they started mugging people who were on their way to pray. They did this to themselves.

Then the mother hutch went on to crusade in the slavic areas.

The map is missing a majority of the crusades. It only shows the Islamic ones.

Muslim rules say that any land ever under the control of Muslims is perpetually Muslim land and must be reclaimed. Technically they believe all land belongs to Islam but they are very particular about any land they once held. Doesn't matter if the only Muslim there was the person in charge, it is theirs forever.

The map probably only shows official Papal approved battles. It would be interesting to see all Christian initiated battles against Muslims.
