The current islamic extremism teachings are for the erradication of ALL people who are not part of the Islamic faith. Starting with Jews and Christians, they are teaching these beliefs as early as age 3 and reinforcing it throughout their kids lives. This practice is exactly as Nazi Germany did with their "hitler youth". If the situation in the middle east isnt dealt with soon, history is doomed to repeat itself.
Also the crusades you are referring to were to reclaim the "holy land" for christianity. Not the eradication of the islamic faith
