On November 27, 1095 at Clermont in France, Pope Urban II gave this speech that launched The Crusades and the eventual capture of Jerusalem. The speech not only emphasized the Christian character of the coming Crusade but also the racial aspect of the conflict — God’s Christian Europeans against the pagan Arabs and their cohorts:
Oh, race of Franks, race from across the mountains, race chosen and beloved by God as shines forth in very many of your works set apart from all nations by the situation of your country, as well as by your catholic faith and the honor of the holy church! To you our discourse is addressed and for you our exhortation is intended. We wish you to know what a grievous cause has led us to Your country, what peril threatening you and all the faithful has brought us.
From the confines of Jerusalem and the city of Constantinople a horrible tale has gone forth and very frequently has been brought to our ears, namely, that a race from the kingdom of the Persians, an accursed race, a race utterly alienated from God, a generation forsooth which has not directed its heart and has not entrusted its spirit to God, has invaded the lands of those Christians and has depopulated them by the sword, pillage and fire; it has led away a part of the captives into its own country, and a part it has destroyed by cruel tortures; it has either entirely destroyed the churches of God or appropriated them for the rites of its own religion.
They destroy the altars, after having defiled them with their uncleanness. They circumcise the Christians, and the blood of the circumcision they either spread upon the altars or pour into the vases of the baptismal font. When they wish to torture people by a base death, they perforate their navels, and dragging forth the extremity of the intestines, bind it to a stake; then with flogging they lead the victim around until the viscera having gushed forth the victim falls prostrate upon the ground. Others they bind to a post and pierce with arrows. Others they compel to extend their necks and then, attacking them with naked swords, attempt to cut through the neck with a single blow. What shall I say of the abominable rape of the women? To speak of it is worse than to be silent.
The kingdom of the Greeks is now dismembered by them and deprived of territory so vast in extent that it cannot be traversed in a march of two months. On whom therefore is the labor of avenging these wrongs and of recovering this territory incumbent, if not upon you? You, upon whom above other nations God has conferred remarkable glory in arms, great courage, bodily activity, and strength to humble the hairy scalp of those who resist you.
Let the deeds of your ancestors move you and incite your minds to manly achievements; the glory and greatness of king Charles the Great, and of his son Louis, and of your other kings, who have destroyed the kingdoms of the pagans, and have extended in these lands the territory of the holy church. Let the holy sepulcher of the Lord our Savior, which is possessed by unclean nations, especially incite you, and the holy places which are now treated with ignominy and irreverently polluted with their filthiness. Oh, most valiant soldiers and descendants of invincible ancestors, be not degenerate, but recall the valor of your progenitors.
But if you are hindered by love of children, parents and wives, remember what the Lord says in the Gospel, “He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me.” “Every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name’s sake shall receive an hundredfold and shall inherit everlasting life.”
Let none of your possessions detain you, no solicitude for your family affairs, since this land which you inhabit, shut in on all sides by the seas and surrounded by the mountain peaks, is too narrow for your large population; nor does it abound in wealth; and it furnishes scarcely food enough for its cultivators. Hence it is that you murder one another, that you wage war, and that frequently you perish by mutual wounds. Let therefore hatred depart from among you, let your quarrels end, let wars cease, and let all dissensions and controversies slumber.
Enter upon the road to the Holy Sepulcher; wrest that land from the wicked race, and subject it to yourselves. That land which as the Scripture says “floweth with milk and honey,” was given by God into the possession of the children of Israel Jerusalem is the navel of the world; the land is fruitful above others, like another paradise of delights. This the Redeemer of the human race has made illustrious by His advent, has beautified by residence, has consecrated by suffering, has redeemed by death, has glorified by burial.
This royal city, therefore, situated at the centre of the world, is now held captive by His enemies, and is in subjection to those who do not know God, to the worship of the heathens. She seeks therefore and desires to be liberated, and does not cease to implore you to come to her aid. From you especially she asks succor, because, as we have already said, God has conferred upon you above all nations great glory in arms. Accordingly undertake this journey for the remission of your sins, with the assurance of the imperishable glory of the kingdom of heaven.
It couldn’t be more clear from this speech that Pope Urban was asserting that the Frankists were counted among God’s “chosen people,” as he makes a point of declaring them the descendants of the ancient Israelites who were originally given the “land of milk and honey” by God.
After the Scythian Israelites migrated out of the Levant up into Europe, the land was eventually taken over by pagan Turks, Muslim Arabs, and Jews — and the idea that these profane races of people were now occupying Jerusalem, the birthplace of Christianity, was completely unacceptable to Europe’s early Christians.
Pope Urban was not urging the Crusaders to go and convert these profane races to Christianity so that their occupation of Jerusalem would be acceptable to God; rather, he was commanding them to drive these enemies of God’s race out of the Holy Land at the point of the sword.
It should also be noted that the Pope was encouraging the Crusaders to lay aside their own internal conflicts with one another and join together against this common enemy–and this common enemy wasn’t just Islam or Judaism but rather the profane people themselves who were sullying the Holy Land with their mere presence there.

Black == pure blooded.
Its depressing, really. White people – all of us, have impure blood. A lot of it, actually, due to our ancestors disgusting sexual preference for animals. I didn’t know until recently. 🙁 This lowers my estimation of humans, and also whatever the rest of us White volk are. “Hybrids” I guess.
I’ll explain. Black people are pure humans because specifically they did not interbreed with Neanderthals and Denisovans, at least those whose origin is in the sub-Sahara region in Africa. So generally we are talking about having less than 1% non-human DNA . All the other peoples in the world are at 3-6% (roughly) , though outliers exist on both sides of the distribution. Asians favoring Denisovan DNA, particularly the Sherpa (Tibetans), while white volk favor Neanderthal DNA. Interestingly, the worlds smartest nations (Japan, China, South Korea) are of the Denisovan derived phenotype, and also happen to be the nations with some of the lowest incident rate of Christian belief. Japan is 1% Christian, and has the highest avg IQ on the planet, whereas China comes in #2 or #3, depending on which tests you avg together, and has a whopping 152 trillion cumulative IQ points. They are 2-3% Christian.
Israeli citizens have a lower avg IQ than in the USA, though it has been moving up in the ranks recently. Huh.. their avg income is about $46K/yr, compared with about $75K in the USA. I guess Jews are poor and dumb, relatively, although not as much as uhm Nigerians and Chads. The USA shares the 29th place for highest avg IQ with Mongolia, and is roughly 70-75% Christian. I’m not making this up. Google “IQ by nation” and “Christianity by country”; I’m pulling results from the top 2 sites that report such numbers. The Sothern African nations have the lowest IQ on the planet, and also the highest rate of Christian faith. North African nations are more typically Muslim, and also have very low avg IQs- about half that of Japan and China. Anyways – that kinda sucks, but I prefer to know the truth rather than live in some make-believe fantasy world. Don’t you? -SOL
None of this makes much sense, and you don’t include any sources to check, so what’s the point of it?
First, which “black people” are you talking about that are “pure blood”? Surely not all black people? Most blacks outside of Africa are mixed with whites and arabs and Jews, so if Whites are all “race mixed” with Neanderthal DNA, then so are all these blacks. Get it?
And there’s no proof that all white people have Neanderthal DNA. Since white people are descendants of Adam from less than 7,000 years ago, they were not anywhere near Neanderthals in Europe to mix with. If any “whites” mixed with cavemen, it was pre-Adamic whites, if they existed at all.
You seem to be suggesting that IQ lowers people’s IQs? White Christians created virtually everything of significance in the last 2,000 years. Before that every great ancient civilization was created by Adamic white people (Egypt, Greece, Rome, Persia, etc.). White Christians, White pagans. Same people. Not low IQ black Christians in Africa.
Average IQ in America is misleading because it’s barely 50% white at this point, and the non-whites drag the average down.
I doubt you will even be back, but just in case —- do you even consider yourself a follower of Jesus Christ? Where in the world did you acquire your “knowledge”?
Science is jewish
Sardon: Yep, there is no truth in you.
First and foremost, we do NOT know with direct certainty that anyone, ESPECIALLY WHITES, have mixed with archaic humans. It’s simply that we have DNA “commonality”, which can signify intermixture, OR that we have a COMMON ancestor. Maybe look into this topic before making these erroneous claims.
And black Africans? They allegedly have up to 19 percent of their entire genome from an “ARCHAIC HOMINID”, so, by your logic, they are also hybrids. Blacks, also, contrary to popular belief, also have neanderthal admixture (or commonality), though less than Whites or Asians. You are unbelievably ignorant, deceiving, and likely a jew, n*gger, or some random variety of a devil.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Why does JEW “science”? Constantly want to tell all of humanity, but mainly Whites, that we are all mixed, therefore we should all love each other and mix, so the jew can have a mixed slave race to rule over? Well, it’s PURE PROJECTION ON BEHALF OF THE JEWS. David reich, leading Harvard geneticist behind these various studies? A jew, who openly states that part of his aims is to “end racism”, and that Whites need to be more open to “mixing”, because AND QUOTE: “That’s your history”. No no JEW, David Reich, that is YOUR RACES HISTORY. YOU are NOT a people, you are a mixed race devil, and that is just your history.
You are missing the point that the Roman Empire did not fall. Pagan Rome fell in that it became a Christian empire under Constantine and his successsors – Nova Roma. The Roman general Constantine was a Briton. When the pagan Roman Empire disintegrated into the wars of the Tetrarchy – his legions emerged the sole victor. Here is the statue of him in York.
Both East and West the nations of the Roman Empire became Christian and were under the Justinian Law of Constantinople. Rome was being sacked by the barbarians of the North. The new capital was in Constantinople. In the sixth century, Islam came out of Arabia and began the conquest of the nations of the Christian East and they conquered the Iberian peninsula. They imposed Islam and Sharia. Constantinople called for the crusader arms to reclaim the nations of the Christian East and Iberia- entire populations put to the sword that did not convert. One of the largest population transfers in human history – out of Arabia moved into those nations of the Eastern Empire and North Africa.
Bill Warner on the history of Islamic Conquest
While I still don’t wholly agree with the motive behind the crusades, being that Christ had already cursed the area 1000 years prior and the children of God (Rome) destroyed Jerusalem 40 years later. We were never meant to take it back, let alone seek to continue to revere the land over its history, rather than revere its history over the land in the name of Christianity. But if part of its purpose was to provide wisdom to our current generation, may God be praised because this is some amazing evidence in support of Christian “racism” as a mandate from God, and that we are to view all non-whites as “unclean”.
God inhabits every molecule of the Universe; therefore, everything is “holy”.
Karl the Hammer
An amazing speech indeed. This should be the rallying cry for all Whites who claim the title Christian, as the same problem which Urban here addresses now profanes and violates beloved Europe and her people.
I am amazed I have not read that speech before. What a smoking gun for the cause of true Christianity.
Now this, this is pure gold.
