The Assassins have had a bad press. Since the thirteenth century their name has been associated with an act which appears to us today abominable, but which was not then considered so in its specific, almost strategic, use for political motives. Far bloodier stories and societies exist in the chronicles of western history, while even in the Muslim world there has never been a dearth of assassinations for avowedly political reasons. The reason is that the reputation of the Assassins stems from hostile sources which provided biased and sinister accounts, crusaders who viewed their suicidal courage with awe and Muslims who considered them as heretics. Hasan-i Sabbah, founder of the Assassins in Persia, is usually portrayed as a ruthless, tyrannic leader of a band of murderers who lived in the impregnable valleys of the mountains of Persia.
