Thanks. Chapter 10 should come tomorrow or the next day.

Been a bit busy with work myself.

The first arc should be done somewhere at around Chapter 18 to 20.

Now it is August 18. When is it coming?
Soon as it sees its cousin in a towel of course! Oh look, Jacob found my preferred pronoun for Jacob.

Honestly, Jakeyboy, you're long overdue for new material. Much like your denim fetish, your second cousin's poorly covered vagina, your conspiracies to castrate yourself and whatever other shit you said that I wasn't paying attention to, all of this feudal revival bullshit has grown stale. Maybe you'd like to restore a nomadic warrior society to Central Asia for reasons, eh? That could be interesting. Or perhaps bring back prohibition so that the devoutly Catholic Italian Mafia can be restored to their rightful, God given place in American society, no? That would certainly be a breath of fresh air. Just pick something new, because it's safe to say everyone's sick of your opinions on English monarchs.

Jerusalem and Israel were owned by other people before the Byzantine Christians. Same goes for Spain as well.

You are very inconsistent in what you consider "rightfully owned."

Also, you can stop being apologetic for the Inquisition. Jews weren't forcefully converting anyone and it was the Christians who forced them to convert or die. It was a catch-22, Jews were told to stop practicing their faith and convert to Christianity and any who were found not to have done so were punished.

For some reason I doubt that you defend Muslims who have forced everyone in their region to convert to Islam.

But the Christians did not take Israel or Spain from anyone, they were both under the Roman Empire which later converted to Christianity.

On the wikiepedia article on the Alhambra Decree(the expulsion of Jews from Spain), "The primary purpose was to eliminate their influence on Spain's large converso population and ensure they did not revert to Judaism." It was to prevent Jews who converted from reverting back. The Jews were given the option to convert or leave.
Christians were never more than a despised minority in Judea, just because your boy came from there doesn't mean the majority of Judeans ever folliwed his sect in the time the Romans had the run of the place.

So if Muslims forcibly conquer some part of "Christian" Europe, make everyone there convert to Islam under threat of expulsion, and then also impose expulsion (or worse, say, the death penalty) for apostasy...

I mean, you seem to be of the opinion that the only legitimate way to change governments wholesale is military force, and that you can't do it by peaceful means.

That is difference since Europe is not rightfully theirs. In fact the Inqusition against the Muslims in Spain was in retaliation for their conquest of Spain.

And the reason why a military intervention is needed to restore the rightful heir to the thrones of England, Ireland, and Normandy, is because the people probably won’t vote on restoring the heirs to their thrones. The infiltration has to happen in the United States to change England’s government since as I said, the Queen can use her veto power to prevent the changing of the monarchy.

What kind of horrid wasteland is Disqus if this is what goes on in it? Is it like Breitbart The Discussion Board?

This isn't Disqus.  It's its own place, but it has licensed the Disqus forum model for discussion.

And if you think that is fair then you cannot object to Muslims forcefully converting Christians without being hypocritical.

But the contexts were different. As I said, the specific reason was a concern that Jews who converted to Christianity would convert back to Judaism. They were maintaining Christianity in an already Christian Land.
