Islam is a religion of peace – 13
A comparison between the attitude of the Crusaders and the Islamic hero, Salah Ad- din, provides enough proof of the innocence and peaceful nature of the Muslims and the aggressiveness of its critics.
Raymond of Aguiles, a crusader, boasted of this massacre and violence in the following words:
‘Wonderful sights could be seen. Some of our men (and this was more merciful) cut off the heads of their enemies; others shot them with arrows whereas others tortured them longer by casting them into flames’.
This is a clear proof of the savagery and sadism on part of the crusaders.
Since the crusaders had resorted to such evil means they feared that Salah-ad-din would also stoop low like them and that he will go on a killing spree to avenge the death of the Muslims. However, Salah-ad-din did not harm any Christian. He just commanded the Latin (Catholic) Christians to vacate the city. This was quite reasonable. The Orthodox Christians, who had nothing to do with the crusaders, were granted permission of living. They were also granted religious freedom.
Karen Armstrong, a British historian, has described the second Islamic capture of Jerusalem in the following way:
On 2nd October, 1187 Salah-ad-din entered Jerusalem as conquerors and Jerusalem would remain a Muslim city for the next 800 years. Salah-ad-din kept his word and he conquered Jerusalem according to the Islamic ideals. He did not take revenge for the massacre of 1099, as the Holy Quran has advised (16-127). Not a single Christian was killed and there was no plunder.’
Ironically, this stands in sharp contrast to the barbarism of the crusaders.
