In the world of today the same thing is happening but through a different mean-art. When artists portray images revolving around religious icons the image may turn into something highly controversial.
There may also have been the idea of taking revenge on those (the Muslims) who had desecrated Christ’s Holy City, and his people, the Christians. Reclaiming Jerusalem was a main religious factor that encouraged people to Crusade. In 1076, it had been captured by the Seljuk Turks, which was a big problem for Christians.

Shell shock was a term only associated with World War one due to the major impact it had throughout the war. It was specifically used in Britain to express a psychological breakdown for a soldier from stress and trauma and fear from battles and fighting. It was hard to cure them as people and doctors considered them to be cowards therefore refused to offer help. Some men only received help depending on their high class or rank in the community, while others were even put on trial and even executed for being ‘cowards’. Shell shock caused a lot of problems and casualties for the country and for the war.
Families, relatives and friends have lost their home and the effect of this conflict has in turn permanently scared the minds of the innocence. According to the quote “Each day of war takes us farther from all we could hope to be or do. We gain nothing but heartbreak, and lose everything we cherish” by a Vietnamese survivor shows us how war creates nothing but death and devastation. Because of the disagreement between the borders of the country, a ruthless war changed Vietnam, who was once a peaceful country, into a land of battles and war zones. Therefore, conflict between the relationships of others can cause war and lead to problems.

The world we live in today has been struggling with discrimination for over 100 years. Alot of people think/believe discrimination has made big steps forward, but has it really?
(UOP) What is historical trauma? Historical trauma is mixed between psychological and emotional pain that exists over the lifespan as well as generations (Raymond Daw). Atrocities and violence prey on the powerless and the weak. The normal victims tend to be children, women, the disabled, the poor and ethnic minorities. These victims tend to be the main point of interests for mass violence: enslavement, war, genocide as well as colonialism.
Question: If believing in a god or gods is good, then why is so much pain and suffering caused by religion--like the crusades, suicide bombings, etc., etc? Answer: This is a question we hear very often, and there are a number of ways of approaching the issue. I'd like to try a scientific approach. The position is that religion causes war. Just like, say, alcohol causes inebriation and sunlight makes things grow.
