I believe in religious literacy. We need to understand people and their points of view rather than grouping them into stereotypes.
Here’s a little background for you, In the Middle East there are two types of Jewish view points: hawk and doves. The same is true of the Palestinians, they have their hawks and doves. Hawks take an uncompromising stand in dealing with the Palestinians, support the notion of a greater Israel, which implies keeping and annexing the territories occupied in the Arab-Israeli wars, and advocate Jewish settlements in the territories. Doves, by contrast, support compromise with the Palestinians, advocate exchanging land for peace, and oppose Jewish settlement in the territories (Bar-Tal et al. 1994)
I wonder if the eagle on the towers is really a hawk, showing Altair and Ezio’s points of view. Before you get mad at me for suggesting they are Muslim, you should read about the Hashishin.I know that the assassins have Eagle Vision, but that could very easily be an idiom.
It would be taking terminology from today and applying it very subtly into the world of Assassins Creed. What do you think?
