To back that up, from Creative Screenwriting Magazine circa 2005:

David S. Goyer, who co-wrote Batman Begins with director Christopher Nolan, says they wanted to broaden the parameters of the Batman mythology. "I think, of the Batman villains, Ra's Al Ghul is the most complex," he told Creative Screenwriting magazine. "We modelled him after Osama bin Laden. He's not crazy in the way that all the other Batman villains are. He's not bent on revenge; he's actually trying to heal the world. He's just doing it by very draconian means."
Throw in the added fire of vengeance present when the LOS resurface in TDKR and you have the most dangerous threat possible for Gotham.
