This seems highly disrespectful to disbelieve a person who claims to be 
using his own name.  There needs to be more to that than your personal 
finding that the name is objectionable.  If you doubt that it is his 
name you should provide evidence that he is lying.

about the Crusades rarely mention the names of the Muslim leaders.  The 
tone in [[Saladin]] emphasizes his chivalrous character.  He was, 
however, intolerant of Christian terrorists.
