On 4

July 1187 the Muslim warrior Saladin trounced a weary, thirsty column of Crusader Knights at Hattin not

far from the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kineret/Lake Tiberius). The surrendering remnant of the Knights

Templar and Knights Hospitalers were all beheaded by the order of Saladin. Saladin went on to

recapture Jerusalem for Islamdom.
