The leader of the Paris Mosque saved the lives of 100 Jews during the Holocaust
"...there is strong evidence that the most influential Arab in Europe -- Si Kaddour Benghabrit, the rector of the Great Mosque of Paris -- saved as many as 100 Jews by having the mosque's administrative personnel give them certificates of Muslim identity, with which they could evade arrest and deportation. These men, and others, were true heroes." (pic: scene from the French movie “Free Men” (“Les Hommes Libres”), based on this story) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/06/AR2006100601417_pf.html
