The region in the Middle East has been the continuing scene of political and economic turmoil. The birthplace of Judaism and Christianity and Islam which ignite repeat wars among the three religions just like in the Three Kingdoms era.
The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, written by Luo Guanzhong in the 14th century is a historical novel based on the events in the turbulent period in Chinese history. Now you'll read a variant of the  Romance of Three Kingdoms called the Romance of the Three Religions.
There has been a bitter vendetta among the Three Religions for many years.
The Crusades were a series of religious expeditionary wars blessed by the Pope and the Catholic Church, with the stated goal of restoring Christian access to the holy places in and near Jerusalem. The Crusades were originally launched in response to a call from the leaders of the Byzantine Empire for help to fight the expansion into Anatolia of Muslim Seljuk Turks who had cut off access to Jerusalem. The crusaders comprised military units of Roman Catholics from all over western Europe, and were not under unified command. The main series of Crusades, primarily against Muslims, occurred between 1095 and 1291. Historians have given many of the earlier crusades numbers. After some early successes, the later crusades failed and the crusaders were defeated and forced to return home.
Several hundred thousand soldiers became Crusaders by taking vows. The Pope granted them plenary indulgence. Their emblem was the cross—"crusade" is derived from the French term for taking up the cross. Many were from France and called themselves "Franks," which became the common term used by Muslims.
The Crusades had political, economic, and social impacts on western Europe. It may have resulted in substantially weakening the Christian Byzantine Empire, which several centuries later, fell to the Turks.
The Reconquista, a long period of wars in Spain (Liberia) where Christian forces reconquered the peninsula from Muslims, is closely tied to the Crusades.

4. The Three Religions should reflect sacrilege, holiness and love instead of blood libel and violence.
5. Politicians take the Three Religions as hostages.

Bibliography / Links :
- The War On Christians by Ayaan Hirsi Ali who fears for Christians in Muslim nations. Her thesis:
Fair-minded assessment of recent events and trends leads to the conclusion that the scale and severity of Islamophobia pales in comparison with the bloody Christophobia currently coursing through Muslim-majority nations from one end of the globe to the other. The conspiracy of silence surrounding this violent expression of religious intolerance has to stop. Nothing less than the fate of Christianity—and ultimately of all religious minorities—in the Islamic world is at stake.
