Although Saladin fought the crusaders and regained Jerusalem, he did not slay women and kids like the cannibal crusaders did. For this reason, the Kurdish Muslim hero Saladin gained respect even from his enemies. At one point, Richard the Lion heart offered him his sister provided he give Jerusalem as dowry. The point here is that there is a lot to learn from Muslims and from the Shintu and Budhists a lot. To see Richard being fair in academia and morality is something to be saluted!! congrats..
