How Do Arab Nations Teach the Crusades?

In the first, represented by Amin Maamlouf’s 1983 book “The Crusades Through Arab Eyes”, the events are viewed as a general clash of Western and Eastern culture. The second is represented by an Al-Jazeera documentary series of 2016, “The Crusades: An Arab Perspective”, where the theme of Christianity versus Islam is particularly highlighted. The school textbooks in Arab countries are generally regulated by a government institution, such as the Ministry of Education of each country.
