Hashshashins

The Hashshashins (also Hashishin, Hashashiyyin or Assassins) had a militant basis as a religious sect of Ismaili Muslims. Founded in the 8th century, this secret society specialized in terrorizing the Abbasid elite with fearlessly executed, politically motivated assassinations. The word "assassin" is derived from their name.

Under the leadership of Persian Hassan-i Sabbah, and later Rashid al-Din Sinan, established a reputation for being able to infiltrate an organization, sometimes over years, waiting for the ideal opportunity to assassinate their target(s). Alliances existed with other secret societies -- legends include the Knights Templar -- in conspiracies to destroy their enemies while sharing the spoils.

They often used men's vices -- drugs, food, women -- to help convert their recruits. By fulfilling their mission -- their assigned assassination -- they would receive event more in paradise.

Supposedly ending in the 13th century with the destruction of their stonghold of Alamut by the Mongols under Hulagu Khan, they appear to be alive and well.

The Hashshashins, as a formal group, may not exist in its 8th-13th century form, but their principles are still in widespread us. Today, they go by different names -- al-Qa'ida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Jemaah Islamiya.

These secret societies have one major goal: power and control through killing, torture, whoredoms and lasciviousness. They have one thing at their root: Lucifer. Terrorist are truly the axis of evil. They have evil intentions at their core using one of Satan's biggest tools -- deception -- as their propaganda machine.
