Oh god, there is so much wrong with this post. The sect was located in a place called alamut, which is located in Iran. They were ismaili shiite muslims whose main goal was to further their religion. They did not simply kill crusaders, but other muslims and anyone standing in the way of the spread of the ismaili. The sect did not consume hash before killing, the name was a kind of slang that meant outcast. And lastly, the taliban are in no way their descendants. They follow different schools of islam, their goals are diferent and the hashashin has long been destroyed. Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassins

Actually, the word "Assassin" was coined by Shakespeare in Hamlet.

Cool story though

actually they couldnt in any way be thought of as the ancestors of the taliban
apart from all the assassins who were eventually hunted down and killed
the byzantine emperor eventually got the last of them to work for him, over in Greece and Constantinople
Where they eventually just died off.

The Taliban are Sunni, not Shia. The only connection between the Taliban is that they are muslim and they get their money from the drug trade.

A better comparison is Iran. Persia is where Hassassins (where we get Assassins) were from. The time of the Persian Empire and the Hassassins however was before Persia converted to Shia Islam, after they converted all elements of the old gods, traditions (including Hassassins) was purged.

there is NO way a sect of assassins could be successful by using hash before every kill.

The Taliban are characters from AC? Too bad for them they don't have loadable save-files.

Assassins have always existed, however being more secretly (or more openly) throughout the ages, it is true of what the term Hashashin but the origin of the word "assassin" is a bit of the edge, since it's first use was in Shakespear's play "macbeth"

And just to talk a bit about it the word Hashashin could as some believe also just derive from the founder of Hashashins: Hassan-i Sabbah.

And saying that Taliban could be considered direct descendant, that equals saying that corporate owners could be direct descendants of traders in the older ages, because there is a high chance of that being true.

And while on the Taliban statement; an assassin i basically someone who murders another person for once own gain, it be money as well as honour.

Please do have any bad grammar excused of 2 reasons; 1 sitting with a dog, 2 English isn't prior language.

Keyword is "invading". Taliban is invading US in a sense. But the content says that assasins killed invading crusades from Europe, which is self defense. Even if this was true, Taliban wouldn't be their descendants.

Apart from 2001, when did the Taliban invade the US? All I know is that the war is being fought on Afghan teritorry.
