Hashemite, is the English-language version of the Arabic: هاشمي‎, transliteration: Hāšimī, and traditionally refers to those belonging to the Banu Hashim, or "clan of Hashim", an Arabian clan within the larger Quraysh tribe.. It also refers to an Arab dynasty whose original strength stemmed from the network of tribal alliances and blood loyalties in the Hejaz region of Arabia, along the Red Sea..Sharif Hussein bin Ali rebelled against the rule of the Ottomans during the Arab Revolt of 1916.. Between 1917 and 1924, after the collapse of Ottoman power, Hussein bin Ali ruled an independent Hejaz, of which he proclaimed himself king, with the tacit support of the British Foreign Office. His supporters are sometimes referred to as "Sharifians" or the "Sharifian party". His chief rival in the Arabian Peninsula was the king of the Najd (highlands) named Ibn Saud, who annexed the Hejaz in 1925 and set his own son, Faysal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, as governor. The region was later incorporated into Saudi Arabia..Today Hashemites have spread in many places where Muslims have ruled, namely Iran, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Qatar, Palestine, Syria, Egypt, Somalia, Yemen, Djibouti, United Arab Emirates, Ethiopia, Northern Sudan, and Turkey. Some Hashemites in these countries carry the title Sayyid. Many members of the Banu Hashim have spread out across the world but so far there has been no attempt to register them all under one record. The Royal family of Morocco also claims ancestry from Ali (Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib) but they do not use Hashemite as their dynastic name. The Awan tribe of Pakistan also trace their ancestry from Ali..holds a high position in almost all Sufi orders which trace their lineage through Him to Muhammad. Ali's influence has been important throughout IsLamic history...

The Se7en Sleepers (also in Arabic:اصحاب الکھف Ashab al Kahf means companions of the cave) of Ephesus was a group of Christian youths who hid inside a cave outside the city of Ephesus around 250 AD, to escape a persecution of Christians being conducted during the reign of the Roman emperor Decius. Another version is that Decius ordered them imprisoned in a closed cave to die there as punishment for being Christians. Having fallen asleep inside the cave, they purportedly awoke approximately 180 years later during the reign of Theodosius II, following which they were reportedly seen by the people of the now-Christian city before dying..A clandestine cell structure is a method for organizing a group of people in such a way that it can more effectively resist penetration by an opposing organization. Depending on the group's philosophy, its operational area, the communications technologies available, and the nature of the mission, it can range from a strict hierarchy to an extremely distributed organization. It is also a method used by criminal organizations, undercover operatives, and unconventional warfare (UW) led by special forces. Historically, clandestine organizations have avoided electronic communications, because signals intelligence is a strength of conventional militaries and counterintelligence organizations..A sleeper cell refers to a cell, or isolated grouping of sleeper agents that lyes dormant until it Raceives orders or decides to Act...
