We should analyze a little bit the psychological genesis of this furor in order to understand it well.

With that way of seeing Our Lord Jesus Christ who was being offended by the Mohammedans in the Holy Sepulcher, we can understand well the ascending and descending path of furor and a number of other such things.

In other words, a person who has received the grace to see Our Lord Jesus Christ like the Crusaders saw Him, seeing the offense, becomes genuinely furious, because he loves Him in that way. And because he loves Him as he should, because he corresponds to grace as he should, he is sensitive to the cruelty perpetrated against Our Lord in that place.
