Was This Hidden Tunnel Used by the Knights Templar? (Video)

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

In the historical landscape of the Holy Land during the Crusades, the Templars, a formidable and influential order, established their presence across strategic locations. One such place was the city of Acre, situated on the Mediterranean shores northwest of Jerusalem. This city held immense importance, with its Citadel standing as a reminder of the Templars' power. Within the remnants of Acre’s Templar fortress, a remarkable discovery unfolded in 1994. A concealed tunnel emerged, stretching an impressive 1,150 feet to connect the fortress to the city's port. This feat of engineering displayed the Templars' ingenuity.

The purpose of this subterranean passage remains shrouded in mystery. It could have served as an escape route during tumultuous times, or perhaps, it facilitated the discreet transfer of valuable assets out of the Holy Land. The Crusades, characterized by the clash between Christianity and Islam, extended beyond the Holy Land's boundaries, reaching deep into European territories. The Templars' operations knew no bounds, revealing their vast influence and strategic acumen in a complex historical era.

It is hard to know what is truth and what isn't, regarding the Templars. The waters have been muddied by popular authors, the Vatican and the Freemasons, which has suited some people very well.

It is worth remembering one thing, however. Hegel never invented his infamous dialectic. He merely gave his name to a time-honoured, yet dishonourable practice.

The victims of the Middle Eastern turmoil were the pawns, such as they are today, as is true Christianity.

The Hegelian dialectic is a successful strategy because so many take things at face value.

Indeed, the average person is like a young woman who has grown distrustful of her boyfriend, but agrees to have dinner with him to talk things through rather than simply dump him. As she alights her vehicle near the restaurant, an assailant grabs her. Fearing for her life, she is saved by the arrival of her boyfriend, who sees off the threat with little regard for his own safety.

After such an heroic action, she gladly accepts him as genuine.

But was what she experienced real? Or was it simply an exercise in further mind control orchestrated by a man she was beginning to seriously doubt?

Ultimately, people believe what they want to believe and some of those that know this prey upon it.

Many conspiracy theorists understand this happens, but still fall for it constantly. And they're supposedly the aware ones. The unaware don't even realise it happens.
