A New Crusade?

The crusades were medieval wars over 500 years ago declared by various Popes in the name of protecting Christendom from Islam.

The illustrations on this certificate compares the patriotism of a solider with a crusading knight. This may have been a reference to one of the opposition countries, the Ottoman Empire (now modern Turkey), the world’s largest independent Islamic power at the time.
