Mustafa Kemal & Ottoman Empire

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (19 May 1881 by a posteriori–10 November 1938) was an Ottoman and Turkish army officer, revolutionary statesman, writer, and the first President of Turkey. The Ottoman Empire or Sublime Ottoman State or sometimes also referred to as Turkey in the mid-19th century (Ottoman Turkish: دَوْلَتِ عَلِيّهٔ عُثمَانِیّه Devlet-i ʿAliyye-yi ʿOsmâniyye (also عثمانلى دولتى Osmanlı Devleti), Modern Turkish: Osmanlı Devleti or Osmanlı İmparatorluğu) was a Turkish empire which lasted from 27 July 1299 to 29 October 1923. 5.0/5

WWI: On this day in history, July 3, 1918, with Turkish forces in the final months of fighting against the Allied powers during World War I, Mohammed V, sultan of the Ottoman Empire, dies at the age of 73. Born in 1844 in Constantinople, Mohammed ascended to the throne in 1909 after the forced abdication of his elder brother, Abdul Hamid, under pressure from the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), a rising political party known as the Young Turkey Party, or the Young Turks. Bent on modernizing the fading Ottoman Empire and stopping European powers from taking Ottoman territory, the Young Turks fomented a rebellion within the Ottoman Third Army in 1908 and forced the sultan to meet their demands and restore the Turkish constitution. The army, under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal (later known as Ataturk, he became the first president of Turkey) consolidated power for the CUP the following year, forcing the sultan to abdicate in favor of his brother Mohammed. The leaders of the CUP, particularly Enver Pa ...
Waltzing Matilda Liam Clancy Gallipoli was the scene of famous and often tragic World War I battles in 1915 and 1916. Allied troops (mainly "ANZACS," Australia and New Zealand combined forces) landed in April of 1915, and there was fierce fighting across the peninsula through January of 1916. At Gallipoli National Park there are war memorials, along with Turkish and Allied cemeteries. The natural beauty of this area, with its green hills rolling down to sparkling blue waters, is surely a fitting resting place honoring the 500,000 soldiers who were wounded or died here. The Gallipoli campaign was a decisive victory for the Ottoman Empire, some of the campaign under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal (then Pasha). Of course the Ottomans backed Germany in the First World War, and ultimately lost the war (and their empire). Gallipoli is also widely regarded as a major failure for Winston Churchill, who was First Lord of the British Admiralty at the time. Churchill was sacked and sent into relative obscurity ...
Good morning, Today is the Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day. In 1919, Mustafa Kemal got to Samsun (a city in the Black Sea region) to start our independence war. He toured around Anatolia to covine the men in the countryside, summoned the army and later estanlished the Republic in Ankara with his friends. They fought against the Allied Forces (UK, France, Italy, Greece). If you consider the last Ottoman Sultan's cooperation with them it was very difficult. When you compare the technology, and the sick man's people's motivation (Europeans were calling Ottoman Empire as sick man back then) back at that time, it was very difficult. After the war he and his friends established a secular system. They tried to make everything with our resources in a scientific way. They emhasized education. They asked the people's participation in almost everything. Women were educated and took part in the progress. Then of course the young Republic started producing and the wealth shared. These *** in power w .. ...

I would like to get some feedback from my TURKISH friends "How Atatürk Made Turkey Secular" The evolution of Turkey in the early 1900s is one of the most baffling cultural and social changes in Islamic history. In a few short years, the Ottoman Empire was brought down from within, stripped of its Islamic history, and devolved into a new secular nation known as Turkey. The consequences of this change are still being felt today throughout the Muslim world, and especially in a very polarized and ideologically segmented Turkey. What caused this monumental change in Turkish government and society? At the center of it all is Mustafa Kemal, better known as Atatürk. Through his leadership in the 1920s and 1930s, modern secular Turkey was born, and Islam took a backseat in Turkish society. The Rise of Atatürk The decision of the Ottoman Empire to enter the First World War in 1914 turned out to be a horrible mistake. The empire was run by a dictatorship led by the “Three Pashas” who unilaterally entered the ...
Hello, I’m 25 years old, I’m an English teacher in Turkey and I’m a Turk. I want to start from the beginning- the beginning of Turkey. As you may know at first there wasn’t a republic there wasn’t even a country named Turkey. It was Ottoman Empire and it was ruled by sultans. In the World War I, Ottoman Empire sided with Germany as we couldn’t get much help from them and as almost every country in the world was against us we lost the war. Consequences were too much for us. Winner countries wanted every region for themselves except the part in the middle of the country –Ankara and other cities around Ankara were left for us to live in- At that point Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) came along. He was a soldier then. He broke the rules of authorities and the Sultan in order to start The Turkish War of Independence. We were so poor at that point, we were defeated, lost WWI but Turkish people are brave, they love their country and freedom. No matter how bad the situation was for the Turks everyone did t ...
UNDERSTANDING TURKEY - A PREFACE TO A PRIMER = THE JEWISH PRESS June 9, 2012 "*** Turkey is an arena in the battle between Islamic tradition and the secular-nationalist heritage of Mustafa Kemal “Atatürk” (the father of the Turks) who founded modern Turkey after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the First World War. With his rise to power, toward the end of 1923, he imposed a secular nationalist agenda on the country, encouraged the drinking of alcohol and made “raki” the national drink, despite its being alcoholic. He did away with compulsory compliance with Islamic Shari’a, imposed on the Turks civil marriage and divorce, changed the written language from Arabic characters to Latin characters, closed madrassas, dismissed imams, forbade the wearing of turbans, encouraged women to walk in the streets without a head covering–like the women in Europe–and promoted the political and civil rights of women. His successor, President İsmet İnönü, continued in his path until 1950. Thus, for al ...
Izmir TurkeyTurkey also has a very fascinating recent history. Upon the decline of the Ottoman Empire, a young man named Mustafa Kemal, who was a soldier by occupation but a great visionary in character, took the defeat of World War I and turned it into a shining victory by liberating Turkey of all foreign invaders. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk founded the Republic of Turkey on the 29th of October, 1923. He led his country into peace and stability, with tremendous economic growth and complete modernization. Through decades of change and growth Turkey still boasts of this success by effectively living by their adopted motto of ‘’Peace at Home, Peace in the World’’.
An illustration of how Ottoman identity remained relevant to Arabs is the widespread support in Palestine for the 1919–22 Anatolian struggle against European armies later known as the Turkish War of Independence. Palestinians attentively followed the events of the Turkish War of Independence, conflating nationalist and religious images, personalities, and events and collapsing the Ottoman empire, the offices of the Sultan and Caliph, the resistance movement, and its leader, Mustafa Kemal, into one discursive field that expressed an identity rooted in Islam, the heritage of four centuries of Ottoman rule, and shared opposition to European rule.

LIFE HISTORY OF Mustafa Kemal Ataturk Mustafa was born on an undetermined date in the early months of 1881, either in the Ahmed Subaşı neighbourhood or in Islahhane Street (present-day Apostolu Pavlu Street) in the Koca Kasım Pasha neighbourhood (this house is preserved as a museum) in Salonica (present-day Thessaloniki),[2] Ottoman Empire, to his mother Zübeyde Hanım (a housewife) and father Ali Rıza Efendi (a militia officer, title-deed clerk and lumber trader). Only one of Atatürk's siblings, a sister named Makbule (Atadan) survived childhood; she died in 1956.[3] According to Andrew Mango, he was born into a family which was Muslim, Turkish-speaking and precariously middle-class.[4] Time magazine states that Mustafa Kemal's father was of Albanian and his mother was of Macedonian origin,[5] and Patrick Kinross wrote that he was "as fair as any Slav from beyond the Bulgarian frontier" with "fine white skin" and "eyes of a deep but clear light blue."[6] According to Encyclopaedia Judaica, one asse ...

In 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of an Allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula, according to a plan by Winston Churchill to open the way to the Black Sea for the Allied navies. The objective was to capture Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, which was an ally of Germany during the war. The ANZAC force landed at Gallipoli on 25 April, meeting fierce resistance from the Ottoman Army commanded by Mustafa Kemal (later known as Atatürk). What had been planned as a bold strike to knock the Ottomans out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for eight months. At the end of 1915, the Allied Forces were evacuated after both sides had suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships. The Allied casualties included 21,255 from the United Kingdom, an estimated 10,000 dead soldiers from France, 8,709 from Australia, 2,721 from New Zealand, and 1,358 from British India. News of the landing at Gallipoli made a profound imp ...
