excerpt from the above URL:
"Drug use by Islamic terrorists is nothing new and it has existed at
least since the 11th century. The first recorded users were the
Hassassins (or "hashasheen" or users of hashish) of 11th century Iran.
The training back then was similar to what many Islamic terrorists
groups still use today. There was liberal use of hashish to provide a
taste of paradise for new recruits. As is the case now the medieval
Hassassins went on suicidal missions assured that they would
experience eternal paradise if they died.

The Hassassins began when a Iranian minor noble with a grudge and
excellent organizational skills created a network of suicide assassins
who were convinced they were doing God’s Will. The Hassassins thrived,
and killed, for many decades until the Mongols came along and
destroyed their impregnable mountain fortress. The Mongols were not
afraid of suicide assassins but were annoyed by them. Back then,
annoying the Mongols was almost always fatal.

The current crop of suicide terrorists do not provide a single
fortress to go after, so the Mongol approach of overwhelming force
applied to one objective will not work. But the resolute Mongol
attitude towards terrorism should be remembered. While the Mongols did
not adopt Islam until the 13th century they were impressed by the
fanaticism and dedication of the Hassassins. Most Mongols eventually
abandoned Buddhism (and a host of other religions) for Islam because
they considered it a more suitable religion for conquerors. There was
also the fact that the term “Islam” is based on the Arab word for
“submission.” For the Mongols this was a better fit than the pacifism
implicit in their former religions (especially Buddhism, Hinduism and
Christianity). The Mongols did not change their lifestyle much after
the conversion."
========================
======================================
========================
The Mongols are an East-Central Asian ethnic group native to Mongolia
and China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. They also live as
minorities in other regions of China (e.g. Xinjiang), as well as in
Russia. Mongolian people belonging to the Buryat and Kalmyk subgroups
live predominantly in the Russian federal subjects of Buryatia and
Kalmykia.

The Mongols are bound together by a common heritage and ethnic
identity. Their indigenous dialects are collectively known as the
Mongolian language. The ancestors of the modern-day Mongols are
referred to as Proto-Mongols.
