Arabs, Kurds and other Muslims are not entitled to Egypt, Mesopotamia or Jerusalem.

Raynald of Chatillon certainly was interested in plunder. Saladin's sister would not be sent on her journey without proper provisions what in this case meant riches. The caravan of Saladin's sister highly probably was preceded by another caravan with people and materials ready to build up a caravansary to accommodate Saladin's sister.

Sas? Nic. Sassnitz. Rug, ja? Rugen. Telemark in Harzgerode.

Under Saladin's command, the Ayyubid army defeated the Crusaders at the decisive Battle of Hattin in 1187, and thereafter wrested control of Palestine—including the city of Jerusalem—from the Crusaders, who had conquered the area 88 years earlier. Although the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem continued to exist until the late 13th century, its defeat at Hattin marked a turning point in its conflict with the Muslim powers of the region. Saladin died in Damascus in 1193, having given away much of his personal wealth to his subjects. He is buried in a mausoleum adjacent to the Umayyad Mosque. Saladin has become a prominent figure in Muslim, Arab, Turkish and Kurdish culture, and he has often been described as being the most famous Kurd in history.[
