Interesting PBS series called Empires. This has 2 one hour episodes about Richard I, the Loinheart and Saladin and the control of the city of Jerusalem. Ongoing agenda for the European Crusades and for the Muslims an ongoing agenda to keep the Christians out of their part of the world and to unify various Muslim factions. Historically recreated with actors and experts - I thought it gave a good overview of both sides - their strengths and weaknesses and some of their follies/activities and some rather superstitious beliefs and practices that evolved. All this happened in the 12th century, but still has implications and ramifications for the area today.

Interesting story about History. Saladin's name is actually mis -pronounced by most westerners. I t was Salah- al -din. I think that is a good thing that Jerusalem is Administered by a Neutral Third Party.

Very stodgy, with extremely earnest re-enactments and a rather surprisingly large number of close-ups on gory battlefield injuries. I was quite interested in learning about the timelines and historical facts so stuck with it, but I stopped watching and just listened (much better as "radio"). The re-enactments are obviously necessary as one needs some kind of visuals for tv, but they didn't really add anything. I probably should have just picked up a couple of books on the topic instead.

For the message to listen and let be for the believers to know for sure if others that say they believe will be as the same or as what is truly revealed as it is defined to be of the relationship of oneself and or of a group membership or of the existing leading soul or spirit and or the powers main source of protection and or cover story for some and nothing for others even unto the pay of a meaningful moment in time even of the separate numbering of that which is alloted for the time and place above or beyond the realm of the true imagination of what was framed and forced for the benefit of others and not just for the one truly.
