    References are introduced in the discussions with regard to Islam, given the conflicts raging in Iraq and Lebanon, and the conflict between the US and certain groups. Hopefully this provides some context and useful background information.

    So what happened in the 1200's?

    The key may lie in the migration of Mongols and other tribes into central Asia and Eastern Europe - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Age_of_Islam#Mongolian_invasion_and_gradual_decline
    Then came the Ottoman Empire, which absorbed the millenium old Byzantine empire.
    from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_History#Three_Muslim_empires which leads to - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_Empire
