New Crusader Kings II ‘Sons of Abraham’ Lets Jews Rebuild Temple

Convert others to Judaism, bring back the Priesthood, build the Holy Temple, re-create the Kingdom of Israel and hit up the pope for money at the same time. Yep, Crusaders King II has gone Jewish.

Crusader Kings II 'Sons of Abraham' video game allows Jews to rebuild the Temple

The popular Crusader Kings II computer game has created Jewish roots and has gone for monotheism with the new fifth expansion of the game called “Sons of Abraham.”

The “Khazar Khanate” in the game begins in the year 867, when the nobility converted to Judaism. Once you start the game you can educate your heirs with a Jewish tutor to convert everyone in the kingdom. Then, with the right mouse clicks, you can build the Kingdom of Israel without the interference of the United Nations.

Crusader Kings II, for the informed, is a strategy video game set in the middle Ages but later moved back a few centuries, and the player controls a Medieval dynasty through the use of war, marriages, assassinations and other fun stuff.

All of the dynasties have been pagan, Muslim or Christian, featuring Catholic rulers such as the Templar Knights, the Hospitallers and the Teutonic Knights, and all of them can be played with holy crusades.

Sword of Islam and Legacy of Rome were  introduced last year, giving each of them a chance to rule, but now it is the Jews’ turn, with the “Sons of Abraham.”

The Boycott Israel movement is going to go bonkers over this one. Let’s see how far they get with a worldwide embargo on it.

If the programmers had added the BDS movement as a function, the player could zap them while taking over Judea and Samaria before rebuilding the Holy Temple. There won’t be any protests from the Palestinian Authority because it is not part of the game, but that doesn’t matter because it never has played by the rules anyway.

John Kerry notwithstanding, the player can bring back ancient days to Jerusalem and even go to battle against two opposing forms of Sunni Islam.

The new version also allows the player to use Christian lords to gain influence in the Catholic Church by using a loyal bishop who can be appointed Cardinal. Once the time comes for white smoke, your friend the Cardinal can elect your favorite as pope, who will be happy to reciprocate by granting your best Catholic friend a divorce.

Now the Jews can manipulate the Catholics for a change, choose the pope, take control and make the world a better place.

It won’t work for long because how can the world consider it good if Jews are in charge?

  1. This is a non-issue. Don't inject political drama into a historical video game when it isn't there already. Nobody involved with playing this game wants this kind of bad attention. We are celebrating the inclusion of developed Judaism and the diversity it will provide the same as we celebrated Sword of Islam when it was released for CK2. There was no real controversy. Please take some time to enjoy the title before displacing your strong emotional connection to current issues upon it.

  2. Sam Glatting says:

    Bet if it made no historical sense like assassins creed, no one would fuss.

  3. Join together to do this work of God.

  4. John Lion says:

    Poorly written and awful sentiment. However, here's hoping they include some lowland dynamics. Will love to tango with french/merc incursions during the hundred year's war. See what I did there?

  5. I suppose after the Sunset Invasion, where Western Europe gets invaded by the Aztecs, making the Jews successful wasn't that much of a fantasy.
    Although it is a bit amusing they came after literally every other religion in the area, including Zorastrianism and Ásatrú.
