Balian of Ibelin
: What is Jerusalem worth? Saladin
: Will you yield the city? Balian of Ibelin
: Before I lose it, I will burn it to the ground. Your holy places - ours. Every last thing in Jerusalem that drives men mad. Saladin
: I wonder if it would not be better if you did.
: [to Guy de Lusignan
] A king does not kill a king. Were you not close enough to a great king to learn by his example?
: I pray you pull back your cavalry and leave this matter to me. King Baldwin IV
: I pray you retire unharmed to Damascus. Reynald of Chatillon will be punished. I swear it. Withdraw or we will all die here.
: When I'm not King, I quake for Islam.
: Who defends? Imad
: Balian of Ibelin, the son of Godfrey. Saladin
: Godfrey? Godfrey nearly killed me in the Lebanon. Truly, I did not know he had a son. Imad
: It was his son at Kerak. Saladin
: The one you let live? Imad
: Yes. Saladin
: Perhaps you should not have. Imad
: Perhaps I should have had a different teacher.
: I drink water for what it is. Saladin
: I did not give the cup to you. Reynald
: No, my Lord. Saladin
: A king does not kill a king.
: As-Salaam-Alaikum Balian of Ibelin
: And peace be with you.
: [the mullah pays a visit to Saladin in his tent after the battle at Kerak
] Why did we retire? Why? God did not favor them. God alone determines the results of battles. Saladin
: The results of battles ARE determined by God, but also by preparation, numbers, the absence of disease, and the availability of water. One cannot maintain a siege with the enemy behind. How many battles did God win for the Muslims before I came... that is, before God determined that I should come? Mullah
: Few enough. That's because we were sinful. Saladin
: It is because you were unprepared. Mullah
: If you think that way, you shall not be king for long. Saladin
: [Saladin rises to his feet
] When I'm not king, I quake for Islam. Thank you for your visit.
[the mullah does not budge; Saladin takes a step forward and extends his hand
: Thank you for your visit.
[the mullah takes his meaning and grasps the offered hand
: You promised. You promised to return Jerusalem. Don't forget.
: If I do not deliver war, I have no peace. Imad
: The King of Jerusalem will die soon. When he is dead, the boy will become king of a kingdom he cannot control. The Christians will make the war you need.
Balian of Ibelin
: [Saladin has just offered safe conduct in his terms
] When the Christians captured Jerusalem, they massacred every Muslim in the city walls... Saladin
: I am not those men. I am Salahudin.
[with more emphasis
: May the Seven Doves rest on your shoulders. Sir Kenneth
: Doves or vultures, you slippery infidel? Saladin
: Come, I invite you to share the waters of the oasis with me.
: These strange pale-eyed Goths, they show their hearts like the bumps on a pomegranate.
Berengaria, Princess of Navarre
: We've been blind. We were proud dearest when we took the cross in our pride, we fought to conquer Jerusalem. We tried to ride through blood to the Holy Place of God. And now... now we suffer. Saladin, Sultan of Islam
: The Holy City of Allah. Berengaria, Princess of Navarre
: What if we call him Allah or God? Shall men fight because they travel different roads to him? There is only one God.
: This is my brother, Fakhr.
: Hold one hand out in friendship, but keep the other on your sword.
