Jerusalem has fallen to Muslim forces. Correspondents Louis de Jaen and Selim Karasi describe the battle, show footage of the carnage, and interview Salah Ed-Din and Count Balian of Ibelin, Crusade commander, to learn the terms of surrender. Will Salah Ed-Din continue his jihad (Holy War) to push the Christians into the sea? Viewers see “archive footage” from 1095 and 1099 to learn about events leading up to the fall of the sacred city.
