20. Actually Saladin was a Kurd
which are ethnicly distinc from Arabs, as present events illustrate.

He also sent down ice from the mountains to his sworn enemy, Richard the Lionhearted, when Richard fell ill with a fever during a prolonged battle. Not only was Saladin a great warrior, but he was a great humanitarian too, and treated his enemies with great respect.
