"Both Christians and Muslims admire Saladin…."

Saladin’s soldiers broke all discipline in greed of plunder…. Muslims  try to sell this savage as a man of great virtue:

Saladin, the re-conqueror of Jerusalem was not  merciful at all. After defeating a large Latin army on July 3, 1187, he ordered the mass execution of all Hospitallers and Templars left alive, and he personally beheaded the nobleman Reynald of Chatillon.

“After capturing Jerusalem in October 1187, Saladin’s civilized act in signing the peace treaty and saving Christian blood was indeed a pious act.”- is what Koranimals have us believe.

Typical Mohammedan BS. In reality this is what happened:

Saladin’s secretary noted that:

He ordered that they should be beheaded, choosing to have them dead rather than in prison. With him was a whole band of scholars and Sufis . . . [and] each begged to be allowed to kill one of them, and drew his sword and rolled back his sleeve. Saladin, his face joyful, was sitting on his dais; the unbelievers showed black despair.{5}

In fact, Saladin had planned to massacre all of the Christians in Jerusalem after taking it back from the Crusaders, but when the commander of the Jerusalem garrison threatened to destroy the city and kill all of the Muslims inside the walls, Saladin allowed them to buy their freedom or be sold into slavery instead.{6}

Saladin: “A Benevolent Man Respected By Christians– from OnIslam


There are many examples of Saladin’s willingness to fight, kill, or burn churches during Ramadan,and there are many examples where he had  Christian prisoners sacrificed- ritually slaughtered by having their throats cut — in place of goats or sheep.

Muslims still point to the Crusades as an example of injustice perpetrated by the West on Islam.

  1. I have a book on this guy Saladin. He was brutal.
    As for the muslim guy that wrote the very misleading article, it’s all taquiyya. There’s no way a true Christian would respect a killer like Saladin.

  2. Agreed StandingStong, Saladin was a brutal liar and that is about all that he was. His victories were also assisted by the Christian leaders refusing to co-operate with each other, so the muslim myth of his generalship is also incorrect.

  3. It’s hardly surprising the Muslims make these claims when Europeans are so paralysed by guilt about “racism” that they bend over backwards to be nice to brown people. Look at Ridley Scott’s film about the Crusades, Kingdom of Heaven. The Europeans generally are portrayed as selfish, greedy, dishonest and uncouth. The Muslims, by contrast, are cultured and sophisticated, veritable paragons of virtue, especially Saladin. We have internalised Muslim mythology and are now making it our own.
