Religion

I'm arguing on the Independant site about the attacks in Paris. I'm trying to bring, as I think, a little sanity. I agree with one poster who thinks that we should remove the name 'Islamist' from the terrorists name, as what they are doing isn't any form of Islam.

I, a little tongue in cheek, also said that Christianity started the religious wars between Christianity and Islam with the crusades, and have been called an uneducated idiot as I should have known they started invading us once their religion was 'invented'. I know that 'There are references to Islamic scholars in the prologue to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1386) (http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/islam/history/uk_1.shtml#h1), which is nearly 300 years after the first crusade, but can anyone give me an earlier reference? please
