  • Saladin: When I'm not King, I quake for Islam.

  • Mullah: [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]

    Saladin: Thank you for your visit.

    [the mullah takes his meaning and grasps the offered hand]

    Mullah: You promised. You promised to return Jerusalem. Don't forget.

    [he leaves]

    Saladin: 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.
