The following sentences of March of the Titans: The Complete History of the White Race by Arthur Kemp caught my attention:
• By 700 AD, Islamic armies had occupied North Africa and had destroyed what remained of the Gothic Vandal state.
• As the Crusaders approached Antioch [during the siege of that city], the Muslim defenders under Turcoman Yagji-Shah started killing all the remaining Whites in the city, along with any non-White Christians who had the misfortune to be present… By nightfall of 3 June 1099, the city was in White hands—and every non-White who had foolishly remained behind in the city was dead.
• By the time they [the Crusaders] got to Constantinople however, the wonder on the European faces must have been apparent—they appeared to have as little in common with the Byzantine Empire as with the Muslims, not only racially, but even in language. The Byzantine Christians did not recognize the Pope, spoke Greek instead of Latin and had distinctly Middle Eastern art and architectural forms.
[Unlike the Hebrews’ ethnic cleansing policies recounted in the Old Testament, in the Crusades the whites committed the same mistake of all white conquests throughout history, even after capturing Jerusalem. Kemp writes:]
However, the Crusader states did not try to change the population make-up of the region by enforced migration or expulsion—nor did they even try to convert the natives. So it was that the first European colonies were created: ironically in the areas where once their now very distant racial cousins had once walked… The Crusaders’ failure to majority populate the areas they conquered with their own racial kind led to their disappearance in a very short while—so that now only their vast empty buildings stand as monuments to the spirit and heroism of the times.
[And in the 2011, printed edition of his book Kemp adds this phrase about the Crusades:]
Never a majority, the white Christian soldiers were overrun, and within three hundred years almost all trace was vanished.
