The pivotal Battle of Hattin, which ended a  90 year Christian occupation of the holy land, (twice the span of Israelís existence in modern times). The Christian defeat led to the next (3rd) Crusade. There were 7 in all, spanning some 300 years. In our time the British occupation lasted less than 30 years. Now itís Americaís turn. Who will prevail in the long run?

 Christian prisoners massacred by the Turks after their defeat at Hattin. Those who would not convert to Islam were beheaded. Today the US uses its own brand of 2000lb decapitation strikes to deal with those who will not get with the program in Iraq.
