Without any doubt nowadays Islamphobia is one of the most strategic fears of the West and Christianity.  Islamic revoloution happening with leadership of Imam Khomeini (PGOH) and its intellectual and political side effects on contemporary world increased the passion for study and research of Islam and Shiism in a very notable way. At the same time breakdown of Soviet :union: as the most powerful rival of the West and growth of Islamic movements under the effect of Islamic revoloution idea, made paying attention to Islamic Middle East and reviewing Islamic history more necessary especially when it comes to historical relations between Islam and Christianity.
Showing a horrible face of Muslims and emphasizing on them as an outsider accelerated Islamphobia day by day. However it’s undeniable that Islamphobia has been formed and developed up on a long historical basic.  The main problem of current the research is to outline what are the source of Islamphobia and where are its intellectual origins.

At the same time this article tries to research the role and position of the Crusades as one of the main factors of Islam phobia in West.
