The Crusaders: The Battle Of The Jewish
By: Alejandra Franco
"A country has the Jews it deserves. Just as mosquitoes can thrive and settle only in swamps likewise the former can only thrive in the swamps of our sins."

1). Why was Jerusalem important to your group? (Jewish)
Jerusalem was important to Jews because christianity was developed around Judaism in the middle east and Jews are related to Judaism, therefore Jews wanted to protect their religion.
2). The reason for the crusades based on your groups' point of view
Crusades went to go liberate Jerusalem from the hands of Muslims. Thousands of Jewish men were killed. The next 100 years new crusades were accompanied by massacres and pillage among the Jewish population.
3).The effect of crusades on your group
Crusades effected Jews by killing a ton of Jewish people. About 800 were murdered in Worm, Germany and some chose to commit suicide. So as you have realized many of the men died. Even children fought in the battle. "Why should we attack the unbelievers the Holy Land, and leave the infidels in our midst undisturbed?" (unknown)
4). Your groups' perspective on the other groups
Jews didn't really communicate with the other country's. And when they did, it was at battle where many of the Jewish would not survive. A lot of the men would die. Jews and Christian wouldn't get along because Jews had more money lending business and Christian didn't aprove.
