Call me Ishmael.

ban-sharia1

9Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

11The angel of the Lord also said to her:

“You are now pregnant

and you will give birth to a son.

You shall name him Ishmael,a

for the Lord has heard of your misery.

12He will be a wild donkey of a man;

his hand will be against everyone

and everyone’s hand against him,

and he will live in hostility

towardb all his brothers.”

*THE ISHMAELITE ORDER OF ASSASSINS*

In tracing the history of that infamous and terrible cult of the Hashishim more commonly called the Assassins, we must look to the deviant groupings of the Muslim faith.

The first, and most important schism within Islam was based upon different attitudes regarding him whom they call The Prophet (i.e. Mohammed). On the one hand we have the Sunni’s, who accept the Koran (as presented by The Prophet) as the source of religious authority. The main opposition group is that of the Shi’ite persuasion, which holds that every
age has its own divinely inspired leader or Imam who has absolute, God-given authority over all men.

According to the Shi’ites each Imam has positively superhuman powers – handed down from age to age since Adam. To the Shi’ites, each Imam is, quite literally, the voice of God on earth.

As the Shi’ite sect begun to emerge, being in the minority, it protected itself by resorting to secrecy. And when Shi’ism itself began to fragment this led to the formation of a whole range of new secret societies – most notably the Ishmaelites.

The Ishmaelites are distinguished by their belief that Ishmael son of Ja’far was the seventh Imam and heir to the power and
authority of Adam – all other Sunni’s and Shi’ites believe Ishmael to have been an evil man legally deprived of the Imamate by his father. The Ishmaelite sect also gave rise to yet another sub-group, a secret society within a secret society.! I refer, of course, to the Assassins.
