Discussion About : # Munzinger to Keren and Theodor II plan for crusade

1863 | Munzinger had became an intermediary by now, for Europe and Eritrea acting on behalf of commerce companies in around the world. He began to sell leopard furs and ivory which is then sent to Europe. During this time the Ethiopian general Kassa or Theodor II, was against Mecca, Cairo and "liberation" of Jerusalem. He had very stron anti-Islam views in Abyssinia. Kassa was planning crusades of the Abessinian and European "Christendom" against the Islamic "hereditary enemies". By letter he is begging for military help to queen Victoria of England, however the Ethiopian ruler gets nothing except a one rivolver from the queen.
