Sultan Saladin, Admired by Friends and Foes

Saladin_01.jpg

 

My forthcoming Ebook illustrated mainly by myself. While the history is accurate from the Eastern and Western point-of-view, my own drawn coloured illustrations is plainly fiction along the “Assassins” personages, though some photographs here and there. Hereby, a view of my drawings, while my artwork is not yet finished.

 

Shortly, the history is as such:

 

The army proceeded from Arsuf to Jaffa, which the Crusaders took and fortified strongly. Jaffa, they hoped, would be the base of operations in a drive to reconquer Jerusalem itself. As the winter of 1191­1192 approached, active campaigning was abandoned and further sporadic negotiations between Richard and Saladin were taken up, though without any immediate result. During the winter months Richard's men occupied and refortified Ascalon, whose fortifications had earlier been razed by Saladin.

 

The spring of 1192 saw continued negotiations and further skirmishing between the opposing forces. During this period Richard began to receive disturbing news of the activities of his brother John and of Philip Augustus, and as the spring gave way to summer it became evident that Richard must soon return to Europe to safeguard his own interests there. Saladin several times attacked Jaffa and once was on the point of taking the city during Richard's absence; the plan, however, was foiled by Richard's unexpected return.

 

During the summer Richard fell ill and this, added to the news of the rapidly deteriorating situation in Europe, brought him finally to accept Saladin's peace terms . The departure of Richard the Lionhearted from the Holy Land in October 1192 ended the third major Western invasion of the East. On this expedition three great armies had toiled to conquer Jerusalem and the whole of Palestine for the West. But, in 1192, Jerusalem was still in Saladin's hands and the deliverance of the East from the Moslems was still a pious hope. The positive achievement of this Crusade was modest: it had re-established a tiny Latin Kingdom on the Palestinian coast. The major task of the Crusade, however, was left undone.

The Saladin Knight Gianni da Cabbala settled himself at Poortakker Monastery in Ghent, near the Saint Nicolas Church where normally new Knights are yearly invested. While as today, the whole Christian philosophy dismisses the faith of Islam as one that rejects Christianity, the truth of the matter is that it is the Christian church as a whole (Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants) and the tenets of Judaism as well, no matter which mainstream protagonist of them, which reject all other faiths. In fact, for the greater part of two thousand years of history, the Christians have actively fought against them all, be it the Jewish faith, the Islamic faith the Buddhist faith and any other faiths on the face of planet Earth. As such Knight Gianni da Cabbala has an immense mission in  North of Europe, defending the Truth that all religions are alike, and that the one is not better than the other. Religion is fiction. (Latest addition in my Ebook to end up the story.)

William, young European boy of almost sixteen, converted to Islam received the name of Hamza. Influenced by extremists in Sultan Saladin’s army joined the battlefield against the Knights Templar during that particular Crusade, called the Crusade of the Assassins. He was asked to go to battle and kill without pardon as much unbelievers to the Islamic Faith as possible. The extremists suppressed the lad by telling him that this is the wish of Allah, and the sure reward is paradise. The flames of hell are not for him but for the unbelievers, they will burn forever, in spite that the Islamic doctrines in the Hadiths say, that it is possible to leave hell at the long run, though with great difficulty,  if this is the will of Allah. Impossible without his will. However, they also say that if it is the will of Allah, the believer, the good person, may also go to hell. As such Islam is not a religion of hope. Reminding here, that the three Abrahamic Faiths are blood religions. No longer of our time, and even very dangerous. They all have extremists.

 On the attack

Knights Templars knew most well that the East was scientifically  more advanced than the West; as such they reduced themselves to work for the Muslims and learn their skills, to bring the acquired knowledge to the European countries in due time. The pope forbade all scientific research work, and sentenced those who did do scientific research. This prohibition was not to contradict biblical history and Christian truths. The Bible leaves with many, many problematic questions for which there are no answers, and therefore reckoned as “doubtful”. Remember God did not created man, but man created, and all other deities.

 About sports, there are many different and exciting Japanese martial arts styles that people around the world are training in those styles: Karate, Aikido, Kempo, and Kendo...

 Also, it is believed that elements of Chinese martial arts originated more than six thousand years ago as the first cavemen learned simple blocking and striking techniques to protect themselves. The first documented form of Chinese martial arts, traditional Chinese wrestling, is noted in the texts written by and about the legendary Yellow Emperor, Huang Ti, in the first half of the third millennium BCE (Before Common Era).

 Yoga and meditation are systems that help people to increase their ability to relax, concentrate and enhance their memory. Different styles of meditation and Yoga use different methods to achieve these goals. Some focus on breath meditation, some focus on meditation through body movement, and some follow different paths. Meditation helps create a feeling of inner peace and tranquillity and is also thought to tap the hidden potentials of an individual.

Guy de Lusignan King of Jerusalem, afterwards of Cyprus. Philippe L. De Coster, is also a knight in this lineage; and ever since his investiture "Grand Master Rose + Cross". He belongs also with the same title to the Sovereign Order of the Elder Brethren Rose + Cross, and the Poor Knights of Christ, Gardians of the Holy Land. This means the Knights had to watch over the safety of the pilgrims. The Grand Master General still gathers new recruits.

Sovereign Order of the Elder Brethren Rose + Cross

Sovereign Order of the Elder Brethren Rose X Cross

Founded by Pope John XXII of Avignon (France) in 1317

Philippus-Laurentius, Grand Master (1975-)

Foreword by the General Grand Master

 

Violence was approved by society and supported by religion faiths, and proved commonplace of civilised communities. What are now known as the Crusades represent one manifestation of this phenomenon, distinctive to Western European culture over five-hundred years from the late eleventh century of the Christian Era. The Crusades were wars justified by faith conducted against real or imagined enemies defined by religious and political elites as perceived threats to the Christian faithful.

 

Throughout the Medieval Ages, the Mohammedans were more civilised and more humane than the Christians. Like in last World Wars under National Socialism, the Hitlerian Era, Christians gladly persecuted the Jews, especially at times of religious excitement; the Crusades were associated with appalling pogroms. In Islamic countries, on the contrary, Jews at most times were not in any way ill-treated. Especially in Moorish Spain, they contributed to learning; Maimonides (1135-1204), who was born at Cordova, is regarded by some as the source of much of Spinoza’s philosophy. When the Christians reconquered Spain, it was largely the Jews who transmitted to them the learning of the Moors. Learned Jews, who knew Hebrew, Greek and Arabic, and were acquainted with the philosophy of Aristotle, imparted their knowledge to less learned schoolmen. They transmitted also less desirable things, such as alchemy and astrology. After the Medieval Ages, the Jews still contributed largely to civilisation as individuals, but no langer as a race.

 

The religious beliefs crucial to such warfare placed enormous significance on imagined awesome but reassuring supernatural forces of overwhelming power and proximity that were nevertheless expressed in hard concrete physical acts as: prayer, penance, giving alms, attending church, pilgrimage and in spite of the God of Love, “violence”, because he also hates the sinful. Today, we are all convinced that not God created man, but man created God, which makes all the difference in our ways of thinking and acting.

 

In the eleventh century of the Christian Era, the region between the Atlantic, the Sahara Desert, the Persian Gulf, the rivers of Western Russia and the Artic Circle lived in the shadow of two great empires, Rome and the Baghdad caliphate, and accommodated two world religions, Christianity and Islam. However, the legacy of the classical Roman Empire still determined cultural assumptions even outside the attenuated rump of the Eastern Roman Empire that survived as a comparatively modest but still powerful Greek-speaking empire situated between the Danube and the Taurus mountains, based on Constantinople, known to modern historians as Byzantium. In Western Europe north of the Pyrenees, where Roman imperial rule had vanished five centuries before, the image of Rome, in law as well as in art, architecture, learning and the Latin language, persisted, even in places between the Rhine and Elbe where the legions had never established their grip. The rulers of Germany claimed to be the heirs of the Western Roman Emperors, direct successors to the Caesars. To the East of Byzantium, the Near East, Egypt, the southern Mediterranean coastlands and most of the Iberian Peninsula preserved the inheritance of the great Arab conquests of the seventh and eighth centuries, which had established an empire centred on the caliph (Commander of the Faithful, political heir of the Prophet) of Baghdad from the mid-eighth century. Cultural divisions were reinforced and defined by religion; Christianity in Byzantium and Western Europe from northern Iberia to the Elbe, Ireland to the Hungarian plain; Islam to the east and south, in western Asia, north Africa and the southern Mediterranean. Neither religions block seemed to be united.

 

One of the curious things about the Medieval Ages and the Crusades is that they were original and creative without knowing it. All parties justified their policies by antiquarian and archaistic arguments. The Emperor appealed in Germany, to the feudal principles of the time of Charlemagne; in Italy, to Roman law and power of ancient Emperors. The Lombard cities went still further back, to the institutions of republican Rome. The papal party based its claims partly on the forged donation of Constantine, partly on the relations of Saul and Samuel as told in the Old Testament. The scholastics appealed either to the Scriptures or at first to Plato and then to Aristotle; when they were original, they tried to conceal the fact. The Crusades were an endeavour to restore the state of affairs that had existed before the rise of Islam.

 

The Crusades need not concern us as wars, but they have a certain importance in relation to culture. It was natural for the papacy to take the lead in the initiating of a Crusade, since the object was increased by the war propaganda and by the religious zeal that was excited. Along the Christian side, another important effect was the massacre of large numbers of Jews; those who were not massacred were often despoiled of their property and forcibly baptised. There were largely murders of Jews in Germany at the time of the first Crusade, and in England, at the time of the third Crusade, on the accession of Richard Coeur de Lion, York, where the first Christian Emperor had begun his reign, was the scene of one of the most appalling mass-atrocities against Jews. The Jews, before the Crusades, had almost a monopoly of the trade in Eastern goods throughout Europe; after the Crusades, as a result of the persecution of Jews, this trade was largely in Christian hands.

 

We cannot possible believe the dogmas of religion and metaphysics if we have the strict methods of truth in heart and mind, but on the other hand, we have become through the development of humanity so tenderly sensitively suffering that we would need the highest kind of means of salvation and consolation: whence arises danger that man may bleed to death through the truth that he recognises. Byron expresses this is immortal line:

 

Sorrow is knowledge: they who know the most

 

Must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth,

 

The Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.’
