Clash of Civilizations: the Moguls, & the Mahdi, the Mandate

East and West have been at war since Xerxes. Modern jihad is but the latest incarnation of this timeless struggle.  From the Mogul empire to the British Mandate, this series pretends to play it straight down the middle as it explores the history of Islam’s most recent conflict with Christendom, and now with the secular West.  This documentary is decidedly anti-British, anti-Christian, and pro-Arab (they clearly don’t count the Islamic conquest of the Holy Land from the Byzantines as “empire”, only the Crusaders who tried to take it back).  It is told purely from the Muslim and Arab point of view.  But there’s so much good stuff in here I decided to post it.  If you love history, this one plays like a thriller.  If the clips don’t load the first time, try refreshing the page a couple of times.
