Groundwork For a Terrorist Attack On Rome?

With all of the jihadist talk of "war against the west," "war against the evil crusaders," and "war against the Pope," has anyone talen time to notice the anniversary coming up in November?

In November of 1095, Pope Urban II gave a sermon at the Council of Clermont that called for Christians to "go to war for the Sepulcher." In the sermon, he promised that "the journey would count as full penance and that the homes of the absent ones would be protected by a truce." The first of the crusades started in the following Spring of 1096.

November of 1095 subtracted from November of 2006, according to my handy little calculator, equals 911 years.

Just a recurring thought that I felt should be shared.
