Illuminati Terrorists and the Cults of Death 


Book Review:
The Templars and the Assassins: The Militia of Heaven
by James Wasserman
(2001; Inner Traditions)

What do you get when you cross a religious fanatic and a bloodthirsty killer?

Either a Templar or an Assassin -- depending on your "Christian" or "Muslim" persuasion.

"The Templars and the Assassins" by James Wasserman is not only a history of the Cults of Death, but a rationale for these Religious Mafia Enforcers, created by the Secret Societies of the Illuminati.

Both the Templars and the Assassins were the embodiment of the Left-Handed Path, manipulating the spiritual aspirations of their followers and perverting them to ignoble ends. In contradistinction to the pursuit of spiritual truth, these cults of death slaughtered countless innocents who wouldn't bend the knee to their twisted ideologies and "religious" beliefs.

In this book, Wasserman's command of history is impressive He shows a macroscopic vision of the flow of events leading to the Crusades and the fanaticism, which ended in massive bloodshed, as so-called Christian and Muslim warriors killed each other on behalf of their puppet masters.

The Templars, after all, were considered "the Pope's private army," while the Assassins had a similar agenda in destabilizing political power in the Middle East.

After a rather mundane recitation of facts about the Assassins, Wasserman rationalizes their murders with a dubious and groundless conclusion. "While the Assassins have been identified as the world's first organized band of terrorists," he writes, "their methods were far different from those of today's indiscriminating bomb-wielding kamikazes." (p.148)

Wasserman evidently doesn't understand the realpolitik of terrorism and seems to assume that today's terrorists randomly throw bombs for no reason. On the contrary, things are blown up and people are killed, so that society can be moved by the Illuminati to a more restrictive State, in accordance with classic Hegelian methodology - Thesis (Action), then Antithesis (Reaction), and then Synthesis (More Control).

(That was indeed the only "reason" for destroying the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 - to inflict trauma and use the subsequent anomie, in order to program the population and prepare it for more restrictions on freedom and civil liberties.)

"The warrior tradition of Islam frequently justifies killing, as do the sacred scriptures of many world religions - from the Old and New Testaments to the Hindu Bhagavad Gita," he continues disingenuously, as if the "religious" justification of political murder is supposed to absolve the Illuminati killers of their crimes.

"The Islamic concept of jihad, or holy war, applies equally against Muslim usurpers of the Law of God as it does against the non-Muslim infidel. The Assassins served the greater glory of God through their practice," writes Wasserman - without a trace of irony.

"The glory of God"? Wasserman must have meant the Nephilim gods of the Illuminati, for whom blood sacrifices are the only meaningful propitiation.

In another rationale for Illuminati Terrorists, Wasserman writes "it was Hassan-I-Sabah who turned assassination into an art form [huh?] - maximizing the political benefit of minimum loss of life and offering a more human method of resolving political differences than the carnage and suffering of the traditional battlefield." (p.109)

"More human"? Wasserman's idea that using Illuminati killers to get rid of your enemies is somehow more noble or honorable than combat is again an astonishing assumption.

Wasserman also fawns shamelessly, when he writes about the pseudo-spiritual Knights Templar and their Wacky Christian Crusades, which accomplished nothing, but the wholesale spilling of blood in the so-called “Holy Land.” The Crusades were simply a power grab by the Roman Church under the guise of a contrived “religious” war.

As a political tool of the Roman Church (the aptly named "Church Militant"), the Templars revealed their pretensions of piety and religiosity to be completely void, when they murdered the Cathars in southern France in 1244. Their true nature as mercenaries in the service of the Illuminati (the grossly iniquitous Roman Catholic Popes) became perfectly clear, when they exterminated their fellow Christians.

Finally, double-crossed by the wily Philip the Fair, the ill-fated Templars and their leader Jacques de Molay, the 23rd and last Grand Master, have forever branded the Templars as a gang of dead losers -- brought down by the hubris of their own unchecked temporal powers.

"The Templars were thoroughly identified with the Crusades," Wasserman writes. "Their defeat and the obvious question of God's support for the Christian cause pressed more and more on the pious heart as defeat was added to defeat."

This degenerate and murderous behavior, then, is the legacy of the Templars and the Assassins, who killed in the name of their Gods of Death.

Oddly enough, author James Wasserman was also responsible for the production of the infamous "Necronomicon," published by Avon Books as a latter day grimoire (book of spells) for aspiring black magicians.

The Necronomicon (Book of Dead Names) is a sorceror's handbook with formulas for conjuring the demons of Sumeria (the Nephilim gods) as promoted in recent years by Zecharia Sitchin.

Contemporary Death Cults are amply represented by the promotional copy on the book, as Michael Aquino, "High Priest Emeritus, Temple of Set," (an offshoot of Anton LaVey's Church of Satan), Hymenaeus Beta, of the Ordo Templi Orientis, (OTO) and Christopher Hyatt, Magus of the Golden Dawn, all weigh in on the benefits of knowing the history of the Illuminati Hit Squads.

Coincidentally or not, these are all groups with ties to "intelligence" agencies and "alleged" mind control and satanic ritual abuse.

Wasserman's credits also include editing "AHA! (Liber CCXLII)" by Aleister Crowley and "Aleister Crowley and the Practice of the Magical Diary." It should be noted that Aleister Crowley, who called himself "The Beast," was the Archetypal Satanist of the early 20th century.

"Templars and Assassins" should have been subtitled, not "The Militia of Heaven," but "The Hit Men of Hell." Terrorism and murder committed under the pretense of "religion" are truly among the most heinous crimes on earth.
