Added DiffLines:

** He carries the theme of the above further before the famous "Nothing, everything" line. When Balian threatens to burn Jerusalem to the ground, including all the holy places of all faiths - "everything that drives men mad", Saladin has a thoughtful moment on the cause of the fighting.

** Saladin's BadassBoast also carries with it a very palpable RealLife subtext. Upon Saladin's death, the previously-united and enlightened nations under Islam quickly devolved into infighting and squabbling which made them easy prey for the Mamluks.

Upon Saladin's death, the previously-united and enlightened nations under Islam quickly devolved into infighting and squabbling which made them easy prey for the Mamluks. In addition, Saladin's death sowed the seeds of the fundamentalist takeover that has kept the greater part of the Middle East stuck in the seventh century in terms of cultural values.

* The final sequence with Salahadin, as he walks through the city for which he has united a people, fought a war, annihilated an army and humiliated a king. He walks on rose-petals into the Dome of the Rock as Crusader banners fall from the ceiling. And then his servants and soldiers all leave, the doors close behind him - and he marks his victory by bowing in silent prayer.
** When Salahadin walks around the city of Jerusalem, he stops in his tracks once he sees a Christian cross knocked to the floor during the siege. He picks it up and respectfully places it back on its altar. According to some news reports, at this scene Arab movie-goers in Beirut rose and applauded.
