Knights Templar

The Knights Templar were a military order, founded by the Catholic Church, to wage a Holy War against the Ottomans and reconquer Jerusalem. The Order of Malta were their rivals and played a role in their suppression. They survived as the bankers of the City of London and were precessors to modern freemasonry, with an emphasis on John the Baptist and sodomy. Like freemasons, they served to protect a 'Holy' bloodline.

They are often glorified and romanticised in Hollywood movies, as heroes fighting a Holy War (Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven) or used in misleading conspiracy theories (bloodline of Christ, Priory of Sion, The Da Vinci Code,..) to discredit the topic as unscientific or ridiculous.

Charlemagne already used Jews like Isaac Judaeus in Jerusalem to teach Kabbalah (nasi's princes) and to steal gold. According to the Bible, Solomon was a worshiper of Ihstarte, worshipped on high mountains as mount Hermon (connected to fallen angel Lucifer), Astarte became Mary. They taught knowledge of Toth/Hermes, sacred geometry from the east.

They call themselves 'poor fellow soldiers of Jesus' (in the Quran there is a commandment to pray towards Mount Moriah). Western Europe is an underdeveloped region, compared to the more sophisticated culture of the Arab world. The aim of the soldiers is to restore lost kabbalistic knowledge of original tribe of Dan Draco-Oion bloodline, to learn Arab kabbalism (The Templi Domini, near 32nd meridian, the first temple of Solomon and David was destroyed by Babylonians, 2nd temple of Zerubbabel destroyed by the Romans, the 3rd temple will be built at the arrival of a Messiah). The Islamic equivalent of the Templars are the Hashishim or 'Assassins'.
