Why did Saladin let the Christians go freely back to Europe when he took Jerusalem back from the Crusaders instead of murdering them all like the Christians did to the Muslims 100 years prior?
>so you're saying islam was better than christianity?
Islam is better than Christianity. Naturally.
no pagans left
Plenty of minorities everywhere
it's clear who are the bloodthirsty ones here
>I asked a very specific question
except you didn't ask a question at all
1. because he levied a toll on their safe passage out of the town, thus ostensibly bypassing his troops right to sack the town and take a share of the loot for themselves
2. because he was a smart guy: he knew the whole of Europe was watching, but also that the Christian princes were as petty as they were bloodthirsty, and broke, too; by avoiding a scandal in Jersualem, he allowed them to return to their feuds without their having to feel the need to pawn all they had to wreak bloody vengeance on Egypt. When retribution at last came, it was in the form of the rich and chivalrous Richard the Lionheart, and we all know how that ended. However, the Germans certainly would not have been so courteous had disaster not struck their ranks before they had the chance to repeat the First Crusade.
When the Muslims first took jerusalem, they slaughtered all christians and jews inside
so thats what the crusaders did to the muslims when they got there
when saladin took jerusalem he knew that if he slaughteres all christians inside, one or two generations later a new force will come and massaker the current population.
One way he broke a cycle of death, in another he redeemed a mistake commited by islam in the first place
Therefore, if you encounter those who deny the truth (in warfare), then bring about the captives until when you have subdued/overcome them, then strengthen the bind. Then after either grace/favour or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens. That, and had God willed, surely He would have gained victory Himself from them, but He tests some of you with others. And those who get killed in the cause of God, He will never let their deeds be put to waste.
- The Holy Quran [47:4]
Qur'an says you should ransom war prisoners or just let them go.
>When the Muslims first took jerusalem, they slaughtered all christians and jews inside
Are you fucking retarded?
1- There were no jews in jersualem because they were expelled
>Middle East plenty of minorities
Retardation confirmed. The Jews were kicked out, the Christians slaughtered constantly, and the yazidis sold to see slavery. Seriously fuck Muslims always down playing their subhuman ways but always exaggerating everyone else's.

1- Who are the Mizrahi
2- Who are the Christians in Egypt, throughout the levant, Mesopotamia
3- Yazidis are still around after 1400 years of Muslim rule
fuck off kike subhuman
In 613, the Jewish revolt against the Byzantine Heraclius culminated with the conquest of Jerusalem in 614 by Persian and Jewish forces and establishment of Jewish autonomy. The revolt ended with the departure of the Persians and an eventual massacre of the Jews in 629 by the Byzantines ending 15 years of Jewish autonomy.
Following the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem, Jews were once again allowed to live and practice their religion in Jerusalem, 8 years after their massacre by the Byzantines and nearly 500 years after their expulsion from Judea by the Roman Empire.
Had Saladin truly been such a pious Muslim in political matters, he would not have massacred the Fatimids. I'm not deeply knowledgeable in the matters of Islam, but from what I know the Shi'a-Sunni divide was not as drastic in Saladin's time as it is now. Therefore Saladin can be viewed in the same light as the best of his European contemporaries: a religious man who nevertheless instinctively acted on his political instincts with only nominal justification, for he was no fool.
Saladin massacred the Fatimid family so his rule in Egypt wouldn't be questioned. Is it Islamic to do it? No, but he really didn't have any choice with the Muslim empire fractured at the time, the fatimids would have rebelled while he was out fighting crusaders and the caliph in Baghdad couldn't give two shits about Jerusalem. he did not however kill the citizenry. The Fatimids were an extremist shia rulers, like the safavids that came after them in Iran and basically tried forcibly converting everyone https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safavid_conversion_of_Iran_to_Shia_Islam
>Plenty of minorities everywhere
Now I'm triggered. All those based languages and religions wiped out by subhumans.
The muslims massacred the Christians and banned worship for about 400+ years before the Christians did the same much later.
Also Christians allowed muslims to worship in Jerusalem provided they pay a small fee. The 'tolerant' muslims did the exact same thing with Nestorian christians and the like elsewhere.
Native Christians were allowed to stay in Jerusalem
Crusaders paid ransom
Old people were free to go
Poor men and women were slaves but thousands were freed by Al-Adil, Heraclius, Balian and Muzaffar al-Din
Also it's worth noting that the Muslims prior to Saladin that this 'american' keeps mentioning treated the Christian and Jewish Denizens like complete shit which is what ended up causing the crusades when people could not even pilgrimage to Jerusalem. This was especially prominent under the Seljuks who were notorious for massacring Christians and jews.
wew The Arabs are objectively greater than Romans m8
No retard stop lying
Why are you lying?
>Although details of the siege were not recorded,b[›] it appeared to be bloodless. The Byzantine garrison could not expect any help from the humbled regime of Heraclius. After a siege of four months, Sophronius offered to surrender the city and pay a jizya (tribute), on condition that the caliph came to Jerusalem to sign the pact and accept the surrender.
>Upon Umar's arrival in Jerusalem, a pact known as The Umariyya Covenant was composed. It surrendered the city and gave guarantees of civil and religious liberty to Christians in exchange for jizya. It was signed by caliph Umar on behalf of the Muslims, and witnessed by Khalid, Amr, Abdur Rahman bin Awf, and Muawiyah. In late April 637, Jerusalem was officially surrendered to the caliph. For the first time, after almost 500 years of oppressive Roman rule, Jews were once again allowed to live and worship inside Jerusalem.
Nice wikipedia article, arguing is easy when you glaze over the 400 years of abuse the denizens inside of Jerusalem suffered as a consequence of Islamic rule, while using sources from Islamic 'scholars' since the Muslims burned down any libraries they saw
Hey man, I'm with you, but its a lost cause on 5chan. They automatically call you faggot and spit out antifacts at you.
Its best you just let them win. Their arguments never end, after all, they jerk off to your madness.
>I give you sources
>you just keep talking out of your ass
>A less organized band of knights and commoners known as the “People’s Crusade” set off before the others under the command of a popular preacher known as Peter the Hermit. Peter’s army traipsed through the Byzantine Empire, leaving destruction in their wake.
>Another group of Crusaders, led by the notorious Count Emicho, carried out a series of massacres of Jews in various towns in the Rhineland in 1096, drawing widespread outrage and causing a major crisis in Jewish-Christian relations.
>Muslims burning libraries
that's a Christian tradition
Why are you avoiding me?
Shamed that you were spouting bullshit and got called out?
>Encamping before Jerusalem in June 1099, the Christians forced the besieged city’s governor to surrender by mid-July. Despite Tancred’s promise of protection, the Crusaders slaughtered hundreds of men, women and children in their victorious entrance into the city.
The Brazilians raped the Scandinavians, they're really oppressive. Their kingdoms lasted 1,000 years until the Teutonic knights came the liberated the Nordic folk.
See I can make shit up too, pass if for an argument
>2- Who are the Christians in Egypt
The guys all emigrating and getting beheaded? The ones who are an ever-shrinking part of Egypt?
> kike subhuman
Boo hoo, those awful lizard-men
because he was kind of a cuck desu
kek i almost feel bad for Arabs. They had literally several centuries when they could have wiped out almost all of the world Jews outside of Europe minus Spain. now they suffer the consequences of being cucked
Why are you lying, I thought Israelis will be smart, you know how many israelis author I read that write about Islamic history, so stop lying. If you hate Muslims I can understand.
>Why did Saladin let the Christians go freely back to Europe when he took Jerusalem back from the Crusaders instead of murdering them all like the Christians did to the Muslims 100 years prior?
Believe it or not muslim leader were not always the savages they are today. Also the middle east was not controlled by degenerate arabs.
>Even the American posters have been infiltratred by muslims
I thought it was enough with Sweden/France/Germany/UK
my god has a longer penis then yours
What a crock of shit. The Arabian peninsula used to be mixed. It is now 100% Muslim. Christians are reduced to a handful in the ME and the only Jews live in Israel after 850,000 of them were removed from the rest of the ME. Zoroastrians are reduced to a fraction. Muslims slaughtered 80 million Hindus. Afganistan used to be Buddhist. Zero Buddhists there now. Fuck you, you blood thirsty savage.
Consider me triggered. I really hope we get to stamp out the cancer that is Islam some day.
