The "cross" in Arabic language is "salib" therefore, the Arabs name the crusaders "Salibian" or "Salibieen" because the crusades use the cross sign on their uniforms. The Arabs consider the crusades Christians and the enemies of Islam. It is true that the European Crusades battled against the moslems = (muslims) in the Middle East to liberate the holy Land Jerusalem from the Islamic invasions in the eleventh century.]
