Recent events, together with the news that the Al-Qaeda terror group and the Taliban look up to the medieval Muslim hero Saladin, have prompted me to write some notes about this notable man.... More > Salah-ad-Din means ‘Righteousness of the religion'. He lived from 1138-1193, a Kurd who reunited Egypt, Syria and Mesopotamia (Iraq) and almost succeeded in driving the incursive European Crusaders out of the Holy Land. The Crusades were the very first manifestation of European imperialism. Saladin was a great general and sultan, respected in the West, and one of history's only Muslim leaders to acquire a Westernized name. When the Crusaders took Jerusalem in 1099 they murdered virtually all of its inhabitants, boasting that parts of the city were knee-high in blood. When Salah-ad-Din re-took the city in 1187, he spared his victims, giving them time to leave and safe passage - it was, after all, a holy city, and this was fought as a 'just war' by the Muslims.
