Ottoman Empire

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.

Muslims Defeated Dracula ᴴᴰ – Islamic Reminder So the Ottoman Empire may Allah reward them, did an amazing job in establishing Islam. However it wasn’t just this, many of us already know about this. We know that they conquered Constantinople, but as I said, there is much that we don’t know. For example many of us aren’t aware of the time of Muhammed Al Fatih (r) fought against DRACULA. You’ve heard of Dracula before? When I say Dracula you’re probably thinking of a Vampire. You’re saying. “Oh Musa, you’re telling me Muhammed Al Fatih fought a Vampire? what’s next he fought Superman? No! Dracula was a real man. He was a real man named Dracula, and he ruled over the southern part of a country of what we called today Romania. You know how they say garlic kills Dracula or a silver bullet through the heart or a wooden steak – none of these killed Dracula. Now Mohammed Al Fatih (r) as he began to advance into Eastern Europe for example Bosnia, Serbia, Hungary… all of these lands, the ...

The King of the North (Turkey shall come against the King of the South (Egypt). Isaiah 19. Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Rev 17:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. Rev 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Rev 17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth ...

Here is a short history of the mineral Diaspore and its gemstone trade name(s) Zultanite® / Csarite® and some of the people involved, also to answer some lingering questions of what it is and how these trade names came to be along with photos and some noted articles associated with it. (At the end of this report is a link to the 96 carat "Sultans Shield" Zultanite® and the Zultanite® "Shooting Star" motif Jewelry Ensemble valued at over $1.5 million dollars: designed by Stephen Webster of London). In early 2006 it was my friend Murat, the current mine owner who suggested we come up with a more pleasing gemstone “marketing” name for the gemstone variety of the mineral Diaspore, it had an awful sounding mineral name sounding like a fungus, so in early 2006 he came up with the name after I suggested we call it "Ottominite" after the Ottoman Empire of Turkey and he said how about "Sultanite" after the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire and giving it a Royal kind of sounding name, well it turns out after re ...

Austria: "Don't worry, what could go wrong?" Greece: "K, so we want to be independent as well, and you all owe us because of civilization and Christianity." Ottoman Empire: "No! You've been quiet for like four hundred years." UK, France, and Russia: "It's okay, we'll just make Greece independent but really tiny, like Serbia." Great Powers: "Well, okay, but..."

To all my non-Armenian friends, My name is Claudia, and I'm apart of the organization AYF Australia. It stands for Armenian Youth Federation. Our main purpose is to reunite our youth with our culture so we can gain back everything we lost in the cruel genocide of 1915. I am messaging you, to please ask for your support in our current movement, . If you have not heard, or do not know much about the issue, it is to raise awareness of what is happening in an Armenian province in Syria, who are Christian. The Turkish government has widened a door through the Turkish/Syrian border letting The infamous Islamic extremist group, Al-Quaeda, through. As a result, they are targeting all the innocent Christians in that area. Many escaped the town, seeking refuge in Armenians churches within neighboring cities. Most importantly, these are the children and grandchildren of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide in 1915, which was again led by the Ottoman Empire, as a result more then 1.5 million Armenians had their li ...
I post this small collection of historical facts about the Ukraine for a fun quick read for my friends!! **The Crimean War of 1853-56 pitted the Russian armies of Nicholas I against an alliance of France, Britain, the Ottomans, and Sardinia. In 1854, a unit of British light cavalry was ordered, mistakenly, to stage a frontal attack on a Russian artillery battery and was decimated. The British poet Alfred Tennyson was inspired by accounts of the massacre to write “The Charge of the Light Brigade.” ** The port city of Sevastopol was founded by Russian Empress Catherine the Great as a naval base in 1783, the year now recognized at the founding date of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. After USSR dissolution, Russia has retained its rights to the naval base, even though the newly independent Ukrainian navy was also stationed in the city. ** Through history, Ukrainian territories were part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and the Ottoman Empire. ** In 1944, Stalin deport ...
Turkey is once again targeting Armenians by initiating their death and dislocation in Kessab. On 24th of April in 1915, the first phase of the Armenian massacres began with the arrest and murder of nearly one hundred of intellectuals of Armenian origin. Subsequently, Armenians worldwide commemorate the April 24th as a day that memorializes all the victims of the Armenian Genocide. There were approximately two million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire on the eve of 21st century. More than one and a half million Armenians perished between 1915 and 1923. Another half million found shelter abroad. The Armenians of Kessab suffered greatly from the Armenian Genocide passing through forced deportations and exile. After surviving the Genocide, in 1918 most of the Armenian population of Kessab returned to their homes to rebuild and develop their once flourishing homeland. Along this Kessab continues to remain one of the main Armenian communities in Syria. Yet the same story, the same hostility from Turkish to ...

March 28 marks the 160th anniversary of the outbreak of the Crimean War - one of the most important conflicts in the XIX century, defined for decades geopolitical relations on the continent. During the last month the international attention is focused on the Crimean peninsula in the northern Black Sea. Its annexation by Russia in Ukraine after the riots that led to the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych, was read by most politicians and analysts as a gross violation of international law. While the conflict is usually seen as a colossal clash between East and West, the role and importance of the peninsula itself often overlooked. Crimea is one of the key strategic points in Eastern Europe and is often passed from one hand to other . foundations of the conflict are still made in Vienna system of international relations to be established in Europe after the Napoleonic wars. The reason for this is that the Vienna system is based on a delicate balance of forces that includes powerful Ottoman Empire that ...
March 27, 2014 Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile Today just happens to be the 160th anniversary of Britain and France's declaration of war on Russia in what would eventually become known as the Crimean War. Part 1. At the time, Russia was a rising power. By the 1850s, Tsar Nicholas I had expanded Russia's domain into Ukraine and Crimea seeking warm water ports on the Black Sea, and it scared the bejeezus out of the rest of Europe. Other nations in the region-- particularly France and the Ottoman Empire, were in obvious decline. By 1854, the Ottoman Empire was only a few years away from outright default, and France was desperate to regain some of its geopolitical glory from the previous century. All of this should sound familiar. As Mark Twain said, history might not necessarily repeat, but it certainly rhymes. Today there is conflict once again in Crimea. And just as before, it has nothing to do with Crimea, but with several other powers trying to keep a rising power in check. Let's be honest-- most human bein ...
“When you cherish someone you should cherish him moderately for he may be your enemy someday, and when you hate someone you should hate him moderately for he may be your friend someday.”- Imam Ali history of French colonialism in Syria dates back to the era of the Crusades. The first Crusade begin in 1096 exactly 500 years after the first Muslim conquests of the Levant had begun. The Christian invaders from Europe failed to occupy the Syrian cities of Aleppo and Damascus. In the early 1700’s the Greek Orthodox Patriarchs in Istanbul, Jerusalem, and Ankara decided to prohibit contact between French missionaries and subjects of the Ottoman Empire. They threatened those praying in these churches with fines and jail time. This led Syrian Christians, particularly in Damascus, to support the Catholic European missionaries and thus Arabism had come up against its first rival; the Greek Priesthood. The missionaries did not work among the Muslims, and were not aggressive or even assertive. They needed consen ...

Greek Independence Day, national holiday celebrated annually in Greece on March 25, commemorating the start of the War of Greek Independence in 1821. It coincides with the Greek Orthodox Church’s celebration of the Annunciation to the Theotokos, when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary and told her that she would bear the son of God. Greece was part of the Ottoman Empire until 1453. The Greek revolt was precipitated on March 25, 1821, when Bishop Germanos of Patras raised the flag of revolution over the Monastery of Agia Lavra in the Peloponnese. The cry “Freedom or Death” became the motto of the revolution. The Greeks experienced early successes on the battlefield, including the capture of Athens in June 1822, but infighting ensued. By 1827 Athens and most of the Greek isles had been recaptured by the Turks. Just as the revolution appeared to be on the verge of failure, Great Britain, France, and Russia intervened in the conflict. The Greek struggle had elicited strong sympathy in Europe, and ma ...

Our Lady of Victory of Lepanto from Hungary, Pray for us. March 23: Our Lady of Victory of Lepanto. The Battle of Lepanto was a naval engagement that took place between the ships of the Catholic Holy League under Don Juan of Austria and the navy of the Ottoman Empire under Ali Pasha, supported by a large fleet of corsairs. The Ottoman Empire was far too powerful for any one Christian kingdom to stand against, and although all of Western Europe was threatened, only Spain, the Papal States, the Duchy of Savoy, the Republic of Venice, the Republic of Genoa, and the Knights of Saint John took a stand against them. Altogether they still had only 212 ships against no less than 278 ships. For ...

Gallipoli (2005) Trailer An epic reconstruction of the battle that changed nations forever: a film of spectacular visual sweep and great emotional power. It all began as a demonstration of strength against the Ottoman Empire by Great Britain and her allies. It became one of the largest landing operations in history and one of the bloodiest and most controversial battles of the First World War. The campaign affected Turkey, Australia and New Zealand profoundly. For Australia and New Zealand, it became their first major trial on the world stage a baptism of fire. For the Turks, it was a crucial step on the path towards a new country and a new national identity. To capture the spirit of the campaign and the experience of the soldiers, GALLIPOLI tells the story simultaneously from the perspective of all sides involved, and sets out to capture the human dimension within the general structure of the battle. The war itself is the only enemy in this film. The campaign is told through the diaries and letters of 2 ...

THE BIG LIE: PARTS OF UKRAINE 'HAVE ALWAYS BEEN RUSSIAN' It has become commonplace to see the international media refer to parts of Ukraine as 'historically Russian'. In doing so, these foreign correspondents are merely parroting Kremlin propaganda designed to undermine Ukraine's statehood and plant the idea that Ukrainians have less of a claim to control of their nation than other European sovereign states. While there are parts of Ukraine which are heavily Russified, it is historically false to suggest that they have 'always been Russian'. CRIMEA - ALWAYS BEEN RUSSIAN? Crimea is one of the most multicultural territories in the entire world - a veritable melting pot of cultures and ethnic groups from across Europe, Eurasia and the Middle East. The peninsula was part of the classical world and features in the tales of Ancient Greece and Rome. It was ruled by the Ottoman Empire for over three centuries before being conquered by Imperial Russia in 1783. Crimea was then transferred to Ukraine in 1954. In oth ...
On this day ( 18 March 1915 ) New Zealand, $ Ireland, launched a massive naval offensive against Ottoman Empire in order to capture and secure sea routes to The battle of the Dardanelles started off with the joint offensive of the British and the French in a bid to capture Istanbul and to give support to their ally Russia. The offensive expected to be crowned with victory in a very short time was pushed back by the Ottomans' unprecedented and unusual defence both at sea and on land. The British and French armies were defeated in the battles at the Strait of Dardanelles and in the Gallipoli peninsula and coerced to withdraw. This is considered an important breaking point in terms of both Turkish and World history.
160 years ago, during the Great Famine in Ireland, the Ottoman Empire sent £1,000 sterling (about $1,052,000 today) and 3 shiploads of food to Drogheda, Ireland.
Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green. But before you celebrate.Please take a moment to appreciate the Irish. At the height of the Irish Potato Famine in 1847, almost 4,000 ships carried food from Ireland to England and Scotland while 400,000 Irish died of starvation and related diseases. The same year, a Native American tribe sent $710 to help ease the suffering, followed by the Ottoman Empire that sent ships full of food, were turned away by the British, and then snuck into Dublin illegally to provide aid to the starving Irish. From the 15th to the 18th century, Irish prisoners were sold as slaves. For centuries, the Irish were de-humanized by the English, described as savages, so making their murder and displacement appear all the more justified. In ...

PROPHECIES BEING FULFILLED RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES WE ARE BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THESE WATCH ISRA'EL, ONLY KEEP YOUR EYES ON Y'SHUA MESSISAH/CHRIST ISRA'EL, THE FIG TREE PT 10 - THE BALFOUR DECLARATION In the early 1900’s, Britain, being the leading world empire, proposed that world Jewry should be given a national home in Africa - the area now known as Uganda. In 1906 a Russian-born chemist, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, visited Britain to protest against the proposal. Representing the Zionist movement, he stressed to the British Govt., that any country other than Palestine would be entirely unacceptable to the Zionists. By 1914, the number of Jews in Palestine had doubled to 80,000. Then the First World War began - the war which many prophecy teachers believe, signalled “the beginning of the end.” It certainly led to the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. During the war, when Britain and the allies were critically short of explosives, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, who was now a Bri­tish subject; presented the British Gov ...
CRIMEA: A HISTORICAL NOTE An inordinate amount of attention has been paid lately to the historical accident whereby the control of Crimea was transferred in 1954 from the Russian Federation to the Ukraine, both then under the Soviet rule. One might even get the impression that the peninsula emerged from the waters of the Black Sea in the year 1953, complete with a Soviet naval base and a predominantly Russian population. Since this is, in fact, not the case, it behooves us to take a broader look at the history of Crimea. Crimea has always been fairly ethnically diverse, serving, in a manner of speaking, as one of the ethnographical attics of the Eastern European steppe. However, from the 13th century and until the relatively recent Stalinist genocide (please see below), the predominant people of Crimea were Crimean Tartars, a nomadic Turkic people of the Kipchak branch. They formed the Crimean Khanate, lately under the protection of the Ottoman Empire. The Khanate, along with the conterminous lands, was c ...
Russia's invasion of Crimea began already in 1783. After the annexation of Crimea in 1783 by the Russians, many Crimean Tatars were massacred and exiled into Siberia and under pressure of Slavic colonization, Crimean Tatars began to abandon their homes and move to the Ottoman Empire in continuing waves of emigration. Of total Tatar population 300,000 about 200,000 Crimean Tatars emigrated. Many Crimean Tatars perished in the process of emigration, including those who drowned while crossing the Black Sea. And during Stalin's erra, Tatar statesmen and intellectuals were imprisoned or executed on various charges. Soviet policies on the peninsula led to widespread starvation in 1921. Food was confiscated for shipment to central Russia, while more than 100,000 Tatars starved to death, and tens of thousands fled to Turkey or Romania. Thousands more were deported or slaughtered during the collectivization in 1928–29.[28] The government campaign led to another famine in 1931–33. No other Soviet nationality su ...
NO MORE GAMES When Armenians and Turks meet to talk of their differences, the attitude of the Turks, unless they are enlightened, is at best “we both suffered during the First World War. Let’s forget the past and become friends” or at worst “there was no Genocide. Armenians died because of war conditions. Besides, Armenians were also out to dismantle the Ottoman Empire with the help of the Russians.” Being factual, the Armenian narrative of 1915-’23 differs from the Turkish version. As well, when Armenians think of the conflict, they inevitably recall the centuries of oppression they suffered under the Ottoman Turks. They remember the 1895 Hamidian massacres when more than 200,000 innocent Armenians were slain by Sultan Abdul Hamid II’s soldiers and the Hamidiyeh irregulars. Armenians also recall the 1909 massacre of 30,000 Armenians in Adana, when the so-called progressive Young Turks were at the helm of the Ottoman government. Armenians also remember a century of Turkish government Genocid ...

Then there is Kemal Atatürk, military hero of the Gallipoli Campaign of WWI, who went on to establish the Republic of Turkey. His creation replaced a lethargic and largely illiterate Ottoman Empire, a Caliphate at the brink of disintegration, with a Western-leaning, progressive secular nation. He was driven by a dictum of “… science and reason over superstition and dogma, and diligence and merit over ethnicity and religion.” In 2002, when Arnold Ludwig, a professor of psychiatry, released his book, King of the Mountain, examining the nature of political leadership, he compared and ranked all known national leaders of the 20th century. The ranking is based on the Political Greatness Scale, PGS, that Dr. Ludwig had formulated by distilling the attributes of individuals whose names have come down through the ages as synonymous with leadership — Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, Washington… Among the criteria are attributes such as military prowess; the nature, number and lasting pow ...

I read the article out loud so that I could follow it, because I can wander when reading silently. For those who cannot read that much, I’ll summarize that Russia had protected Christians against Muslims in that area (and other areas) historically and would have expanded her borders and spread Orthodox Christianity further had Britain not stepped in. In the modern era, Orthodox has cooperated with Russian national interests and the two remain tied together . I’m not sure we recognize that in ...

If you are a member or friend of the Chico Peace & Justice Center , maybe you could ask them why their focus is only on Israel & Zionism. The Syrian Civil War has seen the death of 140,000 in less than 2 years, the Central African Republic conflict (2012-present) is a genocide, and Ukraine has just been invaded & occupied like Poland was in 1939. The CP&JC is not helping "peace" in the region by blaming only one side, and putting out info that is not historically factual, such as their current film event called "The Zionst Story: From Holocaust to Nakba.." (Even the title is misleading: Zionism did not start with the Holocaust. It is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people and officially began as a political movement around 1881-97 in Europe. But it was existent earlier when Jews from the Ottoman Empire (e.g., Yemen, Baghdad, Tunisia, Syria, etc.) were finally able to move freely, --- returning to their indigenous roots in Eretz Israel from around 1865 on in order to escape "pogroms" an ...
Stop Cutting! - Lengthen Your Beard The society we live in today has had a great impact not only on Muslims but on many other religious people too. This is to such an extent that people are often ready to criticise an injunction of their faith merely because it does not comply with ways, fads or modes of today’s society. Is this what we call faith? All religious scholars are unanimous that that all Prophets kept beards. Furthermore, the Prophets have classified the beard as something (that is) part of nature (Fitrah). ‘Allamah Suyuti explains human nature is based on keeping a beard and does not need a special order to be part of a particular faith. Thus, the beard is part of human nature to which all humans (men) have to adhere. The Prophet of Allah mentions in a Hadeeth 10 points of nature. Out of these ten, he mentions is the lengthening of the beard. Allah the Almighty narrates the incident when Sayyiduna Harun Alaihissalam calls out to his brother Sayyiduna Musa , “O son of my mother! Do not se ...
Karzai fears the U.S. more than the Taliban...LMAO ;-P Monday, 10 February 2014 Camelia Entekhabi-Fard As Afghan President Hamid Karzai makes efforts to hold peace talks with the Taliban and as he stalls signing the security agreement with the United States, the Taliban remains busy obstructing presidential campaigns and planning further attacks. The advertising campaign for the presidential elections began last Saturday when Taliban members killed two elections workers in Herat. As usual for the rebels - that is the Taliban in Afghanistan - the elections are considered the perfect opportunity to target people. President Karzai, who was unknown until 2001, suddenly became president thanks to his friend Zalmay Khalilzad who holds Afghani and American citizenship and who represented Bush’s administration in post-Taliban Afghanistan. In the meantime, the man, who was considered a good friend of the Americans and particularly of former President George W. Bush, became the man who represents the biggest prob ...

The question is: is he good at anything else? HIS FATHER, an ultra-ultra-Rightist, once said about him that he is quite unfit to be prime minister, but that he could be a good foreign minister. What he meant was that Binyamin does not have the depth of understanding needed to guide the nation, but that he is good at selling any policy decided upon by a real leader. (Reminding us of the characterization of Abba Eban by David Ben-Gurion: “He is very good at explaining, but you must tell him what to explain.”) This week Netanyahu was summoned to Washington.

Armenian Genocide Survivors and the Woven Art” Conference at CSUN By MassisPost Armenian_Weavers NORTHRIDGE, CA — The Armenian Studies Program at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) will host a conference on the theme of Armenian Genocide Survivors and the Woven Art. The event will take place at the Oviatt Library conference room on Saturday, March 29, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. It is cosponsored by the Armenian Rugs Society and the United Armenian Council of Los Angeles. This conference aims to illuminate the Armenian Genocide from the perspective of the woven art in its widest scope: rugs, embroideries, lace work, handkerchiefs, textiles, and so on. The artists were widows and orphans, survivors who from the massacres in the mid-1890s through the decades following World War I maintained their sanity and dignity by keeping busy with gainful occupations. In a sense, traumatized as they were, they mocked life’s unfairness and cruelty by producing what was beautiful and ennobling. Their manufac ...

HISTORY OF WAHABI FITNA Memoirs of Mr. Hempher, The British Spy to the Middle East or Confessions of a British Spy is a document purporting to be the account by an 18th-century British agent, Hempher, of his instrumental role in founding the conservative Islamic reform movement of Wahhabism, as part of a conspiracy to corrupt Islam. It first appeared in 1888, in Turkish, in the five-volume Mir'at al-Haramayn of Ayyub Sabri Pasha.[1] It has been described as "an Anglophobic variation on `The Protocols of the Elders of Zion`”[2] It has been widely translated and disseminated, and still enjoys some currency among some individuals in the Middle East and beyond. The book tells a story of a British spy named Hempher, working in the early 1700s, who disguises himself as a Muslim and infiltrates the Ottoman Empire with the goal of weakening it to destroy Islam once and for all. He tells his readers: "when the unity of Muslims is broken and the common sympathy among them is impaired, their forces will be dissolv ...

I believe Russia and America were allies those days until the U.S. plots assassination -spearheaded by the Dulles brothers- of Hitler unbeknownst to Russia and thus the mistrust between both nation was born coupled with the U.S. fear of communists domination..so that brought us to 1954 Russian Premier, Nikita Khrushchev offered Crimea to the Ukraine without explaining what were the reason for the gift ..oh! Khrushchev was I believe from, or a grownup of the Ukraine ...so, who has legitimacy to the Ukraine? Maybe Cheney, McCain, Graham, Huckabee, and all these chicken-shawks who has nothing to say when Putin invade Georgia during George W Bush regime..

Im trying to do a mental escape from this place im going deep into my celibacy zone. Im trying to be lively but I have been cleaning and running all day im so tired and it looks the same like no one cares. I love a tidy house near the ocean where you can hear the seagulls like the Carolinas. Since im 29 and promising my life to celibacy I always wanted to live in a house in the Outerbanks look at the stars on my patio in shorts and a tee. Play in the surf and garden in my sun hat inshaallah. Its my dream. Im not ok like with all these children around I cannot seem to forget my days in the NICU with my Asya I miss her. Everyone else is laughing and its just not as clean. Its silly im not married already and everyone is I have only married once. I have been running in the sun alhamdulillah but im ok I guess. So I had this idea if I designed lingerie I would name it celibacy lol. Like I would make it for young women who are single and young or asexuals who perhaps want to enjoy their solitude at night.

Mushtaq Khan Kayani: The Muslim world should know the Saudi Arabia as a country and the Saudi family were created by the British imperialism, and were used against the Ottoman Empire and against the Muslims in general. The founder of the dynasty, a brutal murderer, called Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, was a British puppet and was knighted for his services to the British. They were all used against the Muslims..When the British created Israel, it made a secret pact with Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, that they will always support Israel clandestinely, and would not do anything , directly or indirectly , to harm the interests of Israel. That is why the Saudis have always supported Israel and condemned all those who have been against Israel. For this reason , the Saudis have never been friends of the Palestinians and have always tried to harm the Palestinians in favour of Israel. In 2006 When Israelis attacked Lebanon and the Hizbullah fought back against the Israeli aggression, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia condemned Hizbulla ...
As a an AP US History graduate, I concur that New Mexico is in the Ottoman Empire

Ukraine is perhaps the most misunderstood country as well as the most overlooked. The history of Ukraine goes far back to the Greeks that founded most of the main cities in the South. Kerkinitis was perhaps the first Greek outpost and Chersonesos in the Crimea was a vibrant city. What is not taken into consideration here is that Ukraine since ancient times was the major exporter of wheat in competition with Egypt. Its colony known as Olbia is famous for its rare bronze coinage with the image of a gorgon sticking its tongue out straight at you. Ukraine is the breadbasket today of Russia. It is also the country through which all the energy from Russia flows through. The history of Ukraine demonstrates that these people were always fighting for freedom and independence. They were the mercenary fighters for Poland and the Pope. They were feared by the Ottoman Empire who could NEVER conquer them. This is the real backdrop to Ukraine.
By Hratch Kozibeyokian In the aftermath of the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire, many survivors settled in Aleppo, Syria. They lived in refugee camps (such as that of the Suleimaniye district) and squalid structures under dreadful conditions: utter poverty, indescribable misery, and lack of basic sanitation. However, despite the gloom and adversities encountered on a daily basis, these expatriates, stripped of all of their personal belongings, were determined to persevere. They accordingly relied on what they knew best—hard work. With only very basic raw materials provided by the American Near East Relief and other Armenian and non-Armenian charitable organizations, they set up looms and wove carpets and textiles. They also produced needlework, embroideries, and other material goods with a determination to lay the groundwork for a better future for themselves and future generations. This presentation deals with the conditions under which the refugees labored the types and peculiar ...

Allah ( God ) How many times we ask each other what is Allah what is Islam here is the truth to know about Allah In Arabic, Allah means literally the one God. It is pretty easy to understand how different languages give the same thing different names. Is it that unusual to hear Muslims call God another name, like "Allah", while you call him God or Lord? Some people have no minds; in the last decade, a growing phenomenon was seen on the internet and in published literature. Allah is said to be the “moon god” that Arabs worshiped, and Kaaba (The Muslims holiest place on Earth) is His temple. The evidence for this theory is the crescent that appears on the top of many mosques all over the world plus a fabricated picture of the "moon god". This idea is very dangerous. If you believe that Muslims are worshiping an idol, then there is no basis even to talk to them. They are pagan idolaters like Hindus and Buddhists. It is alleged that although Islam is a monotheistic religion, the Muslims' only God is simpl ...

03 10 2014 Monday Before I get started on the news of the day, I’d like you to think of a kind and generous person from your youth and that as you grew and got to know the world as an adult you learned of the good works they did that they never took credit or glory for. They just did good because it was the right thing to do. Betty Joe Patrick was such a person in my life. She joined her husband in heaven Wednesday at 86, but her time here is best measured by deeds. All those she touched will miss her. RIP Betty Joe. Our World: I hope you had a good weekend. I’ll start with the Malaysian Air disappearance in the area of Vietnam. It seems that two people on that flight had gotten on with stolen passports and their tickets had been purchased with cash in Iran. A Presidential spokesman didn’t have enough information to issue a statement at this time.

The Saudi Sublime Porte Who noticed that the recent Saudi decree banning piratically any thought that deviates from Saudi Wahhabi royal thought referred to the King not as "Servitor of the Two Holy Sites (and IKEA store, of course)" as "Al-Maqam Al-Karim" (or Noble Porte or Stature). Is this like the Sublime Porte of the Ottoman Empire? Posted by As'ad AbuKhalil at 7:23 AM
Over the past week, images of troops massing in Crimea have been broadcast to millions around the globe. It so happens that the first ever official war photographs were from the very same region. In 1853, the Russian Empire fought the allied armies of the Ottoman Empire, France and Great Britain in the short but brutal Crimean War that claimed the lives of three quarters of a million soldiers. And for the first time, photographers were able to give people a glimpse of what war was like. Watch the video for the full Last Look:

In a decision of 17 December 2013, which will remain an absolute disgrace in the history of the European Court of Human Rights, this jurisdiction which has never so little deserved its name, decided to give reason to Dogu Perincek, the zealous and determined denier of the Armenian Genocide by proposing to condemn Switzerland for its infringement of freedom of expression!Co-founder of the Talaat Committee (the Turkish “Hitler”), a backroom created by Ankara to export the denialist theses of Turkey to Europe and beyond, Dogu Perincek had appealed against a decision pronounced by the Swiss courts, fining him twice for his denialist statements. At present imprisoned in Turkey for taking part in the attempted coup by the Ergenekon organisation (which did not prevent Ankara from defending him before the ECHR in this particular case), Dogu Pericenk had indeed claimed that the “Armenian Genocide” was an “international lie” at a series of meetings in Switzerland.These statements, offensive against the ...
Ukraine's military mobilizes, prepares for combat. Trucks , APCs, tanks rolling out. Turkey mobilizes for Crimea after 160 years.Crimean Tatars, who were part of the Ottoman Empire till the end of the 18th century, are ethnically and culturally close to Turkey. On Saturday President Vladimir Putin moved to get parliamentary permission to use Russian troops not just in Crimea, but in Ukraine as a whole. This takes this crisis to a disturbing new level.
Muhammad Ibn Abd al Wahab, founder of Wahhabism was born in 1703, Son of judge in Uyaynah a village in Arab region of Najd. ( i.e. Riyadh The current capital of Saudia Arabia. Riyadh) Muhammad Ibn Abd al Wahab is said to have shown extremist religious tendencies in his youth, Both his father and his brother Suleyman, who were Islamic scholars, warned others against him and Suleyman even wrote a book in opposition to him with the piquant title Divine Thunderbolts. During his vagabond days Muhammad Ibn Abd al Wahab came in contact with certain Englishmen who encouraged him to personal ambition as well as to a critical attitude about Islam. Soon the itinerant Arab and the Imperial British shared a goal. The liquidation of Ottoman Empire. Ibn Abd al Wahab’s, teaching came down to three points 1. Rituals are superior to intentions. 2. No reverence of the dead is permitted 3. There can be no intercessory prayer, addressed to God by means of Prophets and saints. This latter percept was borrowed directly from I ...
"Beginning among the ancient Egyptians with a rapturous worship of the feminine principle in Mother Isis as so far beyond all external nature that it was impossible to express her glorious perfection wholly, and worse than useless to express it in any degree, we find Woman--for a while women--venerated, hailed ruler by divine right, consecrated as inviolate priestess in the Temple, embodied in the Sphinx as incomprehensible but worshipful mystery. A little later, we find women shut up in convents and in harems. She was robbed by degrees, first of her humanness, and, at last, in the Ottoman Empire of today, as in varying degree throughout the East, she is denied a soul; degraded spiritually, because degraded humanly! God requires not merely a man, or some men; but Man, male and female, in largest and best development, for the fuller expression of His thought; that thought which is of His very nature and which when manifested, becomes the God-Man." Paul Tyner
I learned something new today. There is a village in the Northeastern part of Greece called Avato where lives the Black Greeks of Thrace. These are people who were originally brought as slaves during the days of the Ottoman empire but now have an entirely Greek identity. Many of them don't know their true origin since their ancestors had already been enslaved in Arabia prior to being transported to Greece.

3-10 (AP WH) Why do you think the Ottoman Empire continued to weaken during the nineteenth century despite repeated attempts to reform?
Ukraine is very important to Russia's presence in the Mediterranean, as it is directly north of the Black Sea. Crimea was annexed to Ukraine in 1954 as part of the Soviet Union as a way to destroy Russian identity. Just like dividing Austria and Germany was a Hapsburg/Rothschild plot to destroy German identity and created two world wars. Just like the division of the Ottoman Empire into Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Jordan ruined Arab identity and allowed Israel to be created. Ethnic identity is important, and that is why borders are used as weapons to kill ethnicity in the face of nationality.

1850's a declining Ottoman Empire and a Russian one with an eye on expanding. The European powers, England and France along with Turkey, not crazy about the idea. The real estate in question??? The Crimea. How could the Russians justify the smash and grab for the Crimea?? Well, the religious rights of Orthodox Russians in the Crimea might work. And away we go, the result was English, French Turkish troops, about a million, 1 and the Russian troops, about 750,000-- 0. Russia lost some things including the right to have a navy in the Black Sea.

Brodsworth Hall, near Brodsworth, 5 miles north west of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, is one of the most complete surviving examples of a Victorian country house in England. It is virtually unchanged since the 1860s. It was designed in the Italianate style by the London architect Philip Wilkinson, then 26 years old. He was commissioned for the grand residence by Charles Sabine Augustus Thellusson, who inherited the estate in 1859. The house has more than 30 rooms, ranging from grand reception rooms with original furnishings to the servants' quarters. The house is surrounded by Victorian period gardens, which are used for special events throughout the summer. It is constructed in ashlar limestone with lead and slate roofs. The main block is 2-storey rectangular range having 9-bay frontage. George Henry Hay, 8th Earl of Kinnoull bought the Brodsworth estate from Sir John Wentworth in 1713 and rebuilt the house, but lost his money in the 1720 crash and was obliged to take the position of Ambassador to the Ot ...

HOUSE OF SAUD 576 ‘There are more idol-worshippers around today than when the Prophet was alive.’ Thus spoke Muhammad Ibn Abd al-Wahhab. Founder of the Wahhabis. By ‘idol-worshippers’ he meant most Muslims living in 18th century Arabia. Amazing statement. Tantamount to saying that Islam had radically failed in the very heart of the land where, a thousand years before, Islam’s Prophet had fought and won! No wonder some believe he was a British agent… The ruling sect in the Saudi Kingdom, the Wahhabis are peculiar. My interview with al-Ittijah TV last week was about them. Muslims of other persuasions al-Wahhab branded as mushrikeen, polytheists or even kuffaar, infidels. Forging a potent alliance with the desert sheikh Muhammad Ibn Saud was a smart move. Eventually leading to the creation of Saudi Arabia – a nation named after its ruling dynasty. ‘Windsor Britannia’ might be the equivalent. Someone described the sect as ‘austere’ but, notes Professor Madawi al-Rashid, herself a Saudi, ...

Kievan Rus’ was founded in the year 882 and had many rulers during its 400 years of existence, including Vladimir the Great. In 1206 Genghis Khan formed the Mongol Empire and began conquering the known world. A sub-empire known as the Golden Horde and ruled by Genghis’s grandson Batu Khan, invaded and conquered Kievan Rus’ in the mid-1200s, eventually dividing it into modern-day Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Around 1400, the Horde, which was in the northwestern sector of the Mongol Empire, began organizing into smaller khanates. The ethnic inhabitants of these khanates, a fusion of native Turkic elements and the nomadic groups which had been part of Genghis Khan’s army, became known as Tatars. In the 1500s, the Tatar khanates began falling apart. The longest lasting Tatar khanate was the Crimean Khanate which became a protectorate of the Ottoman Empire. The Crimean Tatars were a despicable bunch of folks. They made their living running raids into Russia and Poland-Lithuania, capturing humans as if ...
Guantanamo Bay Cuba was taken by the US by treaty with Cuba in 1903. The Cuban Government has contended that the Treaty was forced by the US and it should be voided. Some legal scholars agree, some do not. Crimea Peninsula was taken by Imperial Russia from the Ottoman Empire in the 18th Century and then through a period of changes in political structure/borders it became an autonomous parliamentary republic within Ukraine. It is the home of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Russia's warm water port. Question: Is there a parallel here of two world powers, still having "empires" and "spheres of influence" not interested in yielding land that is not theirs or was acquired by force? Is Russia correct in believing that their presence there is justified and it is not an international concern? What if the Cubans forced their way into Guantanamo and declared it Cuban land and requested that the US abandon it immediately? E Pluribus Unum.Peace.

Things You Should Know About Russia's Incursion Into Crimea... 1. What Is Crimea? Crimea is a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine, which means that while it is part of Ukraine’s sovereign territory, it is largely self governed. A beautiful place located on the Black Sea, with rugged mountains leading to sandy beaches, Crimea is a popular tourist destination. It is also a tricky place politically. In 1954 Khrushchev decreed that it become part of Ukraine, a move that many in Russia still see as illegitimate. Just over half of the population are ethnic Russians, a quarter are ethnic Ukrainians and most of the remainder are Crimean Tatars who, having been deported by Stalin in 1944, are fiercely anti-Russian. In 1992, after the collapse of the Soviet Unions, Crimea decided to join the newly independent country of Ukraine. 2. Why Russia Wants It Crimea looms large in Russian history. It was the site of the Crimean War fought in the 1850’s against the French, British and Ottoman Empire . Although Russia lost ...

"For history nerds, it's fascinating to see the word "Crimea" back in the news. The last time this peninsula on the Black Sea dominated world headlines was nearly 160 years ago. (Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin met there at the town of Yalta in 1945, but that wasn't really about the region.) The Crimean War of 1853-1856 pitted the Russians against the British Empire, France, the Ottoman Empire and Sardinia. Russia lost. That's about all you need to know about the geopolitics. But the Crimean War played a huge role in the Western zeitgeist of the time, and is notable for the literary, cultural and technological impacts that still reverberate."
The real victims of Russia's illegal and dangerous actions in Crimea are the Crimean Tatars, whose homeland this is. A sense of history is in order. The Russian Empire conquered the Crimean Khanate and subdued the Crimean Tatars in the 18th century. The Crimean War (1853-1856) was the military action and invasion by Britain and France to stop the Russian Empire's dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire. At the end of the war, Karl Marx wrote a coruscating account of Britain's connivance with the Russian Empire - “Revelations of the Diplomatic History of the 18th Century” Marx-Engels Collected Works Vol.15 (London, Lawrence & Wishart) 25-96, originally published in instalments in The Free Press August 1856 - April 1857; and London, Swan Sonnenschein; available in Project Gutenberg at and in the Marx Archive at Under Stalin the Russian Empire reached its widest extent, and the USSR committed genocide when in August 1944 half the Crimean Tatar population died when the entire population were deported to Centr ...
How we made Who Do You Think You Are? with Boris Johnson - Political Murder in the Ottoman Empire
Before it was even known as Crimea, for example, the peninsula was known was "Taurica" by the Greek and Roman empires, both of which at points incorporated the region into their empires. These weren't the only outside forces that dominated Crimea, and at other points in its past it has been invaded or ruled by Gothic tribes, the Kievan Rus' state, the Byzantium empire and the Mongols, among many others. From the mid-1400s it existed as the Crimean Khanate, a protectorate of the Ottoman Empire, during which time it became the center of a roaring slave trade. The modern name "Crimea" seems to have come from the language of the Crimean Tatars, a Turkic ethnic group that emerged during the Crimean Khanate. The Tatars called the peninsula "Qırım." While Russia, which annexed the state in 1783, officially tried to change the name back to Taurica, Crimea was still used informally and eventually reappeared officially in 1917. In "The Tatars of Crimea: Return to the Homeland: Studies and Documents," Edward A. Al ...
Ukrainian Muslims: Between the devil and the deep blue sea! ISLAMIC HISTORY: Crimea which is a peninsula between Russia and Ukraine is home to one of the largest Russain Navy (Black Sea fleet) which Russia leased from Ukraine until 2042. Russia has huge Naval and military presence in this area and Russia will NOT let go of one of their most strategic warm water ports.A warm water port is where the water doesn't freeze in winter and it is of utmost importance to Russian Navy. Crimea is also home to Crimean Tatars which have inhabited this land since the middle ages. They accepted Islam hundreds of years ago and live under the Ottoman Empire. Muslims lost this area to Russians in the Russo-Turkish War (1768–74) and there has been a history of persecution on Islam and Muslims since then. In 1944 after the World War II Joseph Stalin labelled these Muslims as collaborators (with Nazi Germany) and thousands were killed or forced exiled into neighbouring Uzbekistan, Kazakhistan etc. The forced exile of Muslims ...
THE CRIMEAN? - BE INFORMED: Didregard FOX and CNN Talking Points "Crimea became part of Ukraine only in 1954. Crimea was historically part of Russia, and (Nikita) Khrushchev gave it to Ukraine in a gesture that mystified some people." David Ignatius on Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 in comments on CBS' "Face the Nation" Historical claim shows why Crimea matters to Russia Crimea is an eastern Ukrainian peninsula located on the Black Sea. It’s connected to the rest of the country by a small strip of land. Out of its 2 million residents, about 60 percent identify as Russian. That’s the highest concentration of Russian speakers in Ukraine.

BOOK OF THE WEEK Title: From the Ruins of Empire: The Revolt Against the West and the Remaking of Asia Author: Pankaj Mishra Hardcover: 368 pages Publisher: Allen Lane (2 August 2012) About the Book: From Pankaj Mishra, author the successful Temptations of the West and Butter Chicken in Ludhiana, comes a provocative account of how China, India and the Muslim World are remaking the world in their own image. The Victorian period, viewed in the West as a time of self-confident progress, was experienced by Asians as a catastrophe. As the British gunned down the last heirs to the Mughal Empire, burned down the Summer Palace in Beijing, or humiliated the bankrupt rulers of the Ottoman Empire, it was clear that for Asia to recover a vast intellectual effort would be required. Pankaj Mishra's fascinating, highly entertaining new book tells the story of a remarkable group of men from across the continent who met the challenge of the West. Incessantly travelling, questioning and agonising, they both hated the West ...
Kebab (also kebap or kabab) is a Middle Eastern dish of pieces of meat, fish, or vegetables roasted, grilled or fried, originating in the Eastern Mediterranean and later adopted in Central Asia and by the regions of the former Mongol Empire and Ottoman Empire, before spreading worldwide. Kebab refers to meat that is cooked over or next to flames; large or small cuts of meat, or even ground meat is used. It may be served on plates, in sandwiches, or in wraps. The traditional meat for kebab is lamb, but depending on local taste other meats may include beef, goat, chicken or fish. Like other ethnic foods brought by travelers, the kebab has remained a part of everyday cuisine in most of the Eastern Mediterranean and South Asia. It is also popular among people as a snack. Pakistani cuisine is rich with different kebabs. Meat including beef, chicken, lamb and fish is used in kebabs. Some popular kebabs are: Bihari kebab Bun kebab Chapli kebab Chicken kebab Dhaga kabab Fish kebab Gola kebab Kache qeema kebab Pa ...

This week in history USSR forcibly relocates the Chechens Like in many parts of Europe, the period between the two world wars was not one of peaceful co-existence in the Soviet Union. Border disputes and ethnic tensions flared across the Soviet republics. As the 1920s gave way to the 30s, Stalin redirected his ire - instead of suppressing and expelling people according to their economic status (such as with the higher-income farmers, the "kulaks"), Stalin gave into ethnic strife and expelled those who banded together under uncooperative ethnic banners. The Chechens got their turn in late February of 1944 for their part in the ethnic warfare that assisted the German invasion. World War I signified the transition from empires and kingdoms to nation-states and the anomaly of the ideologically driven Soviet Union. Empires such as the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Kingdom, where people were considered subjects, gave way to nations that encouraged ethnic and linguistic identities ...
Ottoman Empire From humble origins the Turks rose to dominate over the whole of Anatolia and even parts of Europe. In 1453 Mehmet the Conqueror captured Constantinople and put an end to the Byzantine empire. The Ottomans conquered much of eastem Europe and nearly the whole of the Arab world, only Morocco and Mauritania in the West and Yemen, Hadramaut and parts of the Arabian Peninsula remaining beyond their control. They reached their zenith of power with Suleyman the Magnificent whose armies reached Hungary and Austria. From the 17th century onward with the rise of Westem European powers and later Russia, the power of the Ottomans began to wane. But they nevertheless remained a force to be reckoned with until the First World War when they were defeated by the Westem nations. Soon thereafter Kamal Ataturk gained power in Turkey and abolished the six centuries of rule of the Ottomans in 1924.
After the Mangol Invasion The Mongols devastated the eastern lands of Islam and ruled from the Sinai Desert to India for a century. But they soon converted to Islam and became known as the Il-Khanids. They were in turn succeeded by Timur and his descendents who made Samarqand their capital and ruled from 1369 to 1500. The sudden rise of Timur delayed the formation and expansion of the Ottoman empire but soon the Ottomans became the dominant power in the Islamic world.
On November 2nd 1917 the then British Foreign Secretary, Arthur Balfour, had promised the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland his country’s help to establish a Jewish home land in Palestine. This is known as Balfour Declaration. The Balfour Declaration to Walter Rothschild, the leader of the British Jewish community, to be transmitted to the Zionist Federation stated that: “… His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish People, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object …” This Declaration was made without regard to and without consulting the indigenous Christian and Moslem inhabitants of Palestine, and even before enforcing the British Mandate on Palestine. In the usual British double dealings this Declaration came in contradiction to the 1915 McMahon-Hussein agreement. Sir Henry McMahon, the British High Commissioner in Egypt, and Hussein bin Ali, the Sharif of Mecca, had an agreeme ...

From 1801 to 1812, Elgin's agents removed about half of the surviving sculptures of the Parthenon, as well as architectural members and sculpture from the Propylaea and Erechtheum. The Marbles were transported by sea to Britain. In Britain, the acquisition of the collection was supported by some, while some critics compared Elgin's actions to vandalism or looting. Following a public debate in Parliament and the subsequent exoneration of Elgin's actions, the marbles were purchased by the British government in 1816 and placed on display in the British Museum, where they stand now on view in the purpose-built Duveen Gallery. The debate continues as to whether the Marbles should remain in the British Museum or be returned to Athens. Acquisition In December of 1798, Thomas Bruce, 7th Earl of Elgin, was appointed as "Ambassador Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of His Britannic Majesty to the Sublime Porte of Selim III, Sultan of Ottoman Empire" (Greece was then part of the Ottoman realm).

At its core, the Ottoman Empire was a strongly Muslim state. The emphasis the empire placed on ensuring the place of Islam in government has scarcely been seen elsewhere in history.
For Poland-Lithuania's Muslims, conflict with the Ottoman Empire was anathema. Nevertheless, Muslim noblemen were legally bound to participate in the wars of their Catholic monarchs. By the 16th century, their existence as an integrated, protected Muslim minority population living in a Christian realm was something of a curiosity for the Ottoman court. You'll never guess how they responded to these issues when approached by Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent...

Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Empire. The Armenian Genocide was implemented in 4 stages: 1 . disarmament of Armenian soldiers, 2 . selective deportation of Armenians from borders, 3 . adoption of law about dispatch, 4 . mass deportation and murders of Armenians. Some historians include in it murders of the 1890th years, slaughter in Smyrna and actions of the Turkish armies in Transcaucasia in 1918. Leaders of mladoturoks Talaat, Dzhemal and Enver, and also the head of "The special organization" Bekhaeddin Shakir are the main organizers of genocide. At the same time with Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire took place the genocide of Assyrians and the Pontic Greeks. The most part of the Armenian diaspora arose from the Armenians ran from the Ottoman Empire.

19th century Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, leader of the Dervis Sultan Yusuf Mahamud Ibrahim, the third Sultan of the House of Gobroon, started the Golden age of the Gobroon dynasty. His army came out victorious during the Bardheere jihad, which restored stability in the region and revitalized the East African ivory trade. He also received presents and had cordial relations with the rulers of neighbouring and distant kingdoms such as the Omani, Wituland and Yemeni sultans. Sultan Ibrahim's son Ahmed Yusuf succeeded him and was one of the most important figures in 19th century East Africa, receiving tribute from Omani governors and creating alliances with important Muslim families on the East African coast. In northern Somalia, the Gerad Dynasty conducted trade with Yemen and Persia and competed with the merchants of the Bari Dynasty. The Gerads and the Bari Sultans built impressive palaces, castles and fortresses and had close relations with many different empires in the Near East. In the late 19th century, a ...

Will the fighting end if Assad goes? When it comes to the three-year old civil war in Syria, everyone knows how complicated the opposition front is. But in terms of the regime forces, there is only one personality that counts: Assad. So will the fighting in Syria end if Assad goes? Subconsciously simplifying matters that are hard to understand and making generalizations is part of human nature. Generalizations may gradually become a fog that shrouds the truth. We see a similar example with the Syrian forces. The instances we have seen since the start of the search for democracy known as the Arab Spring have given many people the impression a similar path will be taken in all countries. However, the Bin Ali regime in Tunisia, the Mubarak regime in Egypt, the Salih regime in Yemen and the Gaddafi regime in Libya all had one thing in common; those regimes were systems in which the state was run by the initiative of a single dictator, and change was possible the moment that dictator was either overthrown or . ...
HISTORY OF COFFEE According to the historical record, in the 1400s coffee became a very popular drink among Muslims in Yemen, in the southern Arabian Peninsula. Legend goes that a shepherd (some say in Yemen, some say in Ethiopia) noticed that his goats became very energetic and jumpy when they ate beans from a particular tree. He had the courage to try them himself, noticing they gave him an energy boost. Over time, the tradition of roasting the beans and immersing them in water to create a sour yet powerful drink developed, and thus, coffee was born. Roasted coffee beans Regardless of whether or not the story of the shepherd ever really happened, coffee found its way from the highlands of Yemen to the rest of the Ottoman Empire, the premier Muslim empire of the 15th century. Coffeehouses specializing in the new drink began to spring up in all the major cities of the Muslim world: Cairo, Istanbul, Damascus, Baghdad. From the Muslim world, the drink found its way into Europe through the great merchant cit ...

Health Tips For The Day. Hookah is not harmless. Smoking hookah can be addictive and harmful, though many dabblers may not realize the dangers, according to a new review. "The cooled and sweetened flavor of hookah tobacco makes it more enticing to kids and they falsely believe it's less harmful," Tracey E. Barnett from the University of Florida in Gainesville told Reuters Health. Barnett has studied the recent rise in teen hookah smoking. She was not involved in the new review, published in Respiratory Medicine. "One-time use can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or other diseases, including but not limited to tuberculosis, herpes, respiratory illnesses including the flu, and long-term use can lead to heart disease and many cancers," Barnett said. Smoking with a hookah, or "shisha," device has become increasingly common in Europe and the Western Hemisphere in recent years. The practice rose to prominence on the Indian subcontinent among Hindus in the 15th Century and subsequently spread through the Ottoma ...

The Crimean War (1853-56) is important because it was truly the crucible in which modern Russian nationalism was forged. The idealized, romantic nationalism that swept across Europe after the Napoleonic Wars (1798-1815) was felt just as keenly in Russia, even in the land of Tsarist autocracy, as elsewhere. It was during the Crimean War that the two particular strains of nationalist sentiment fused together providing, as the century progressed, the impetus for both an aggressive, expansionist policy abroad and, ultimately, revolution at home and leaving in its wake the landscape of our modern world. By the early 1850s Pan-Slavism, or the idea that Russia, as the largest and greatest Slavic state bore a responsibility to protect and liberate the other Slavic peoples on the continent, then toiling under Turkish rule in the Ottoman Empire or under Habsburg domination in the Austrian lands, had gained support among the influential, educated classes in Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

" But the parallels between what happened to the Jews and to the Armenians are striking. In both cases, a murderous policy was shaped in wartime by high officials of state with far more single-minded objectives than those of their populations at large. They prevailed thanks to their control of the machinery of violence, both formal and informal, and to the resources that accrued to them from sudden large-scale dispossession.

In the end of one hundred years of war period, Circassia region of the Caucasus was invaded and colonized by Russian Empire in 1864. During that period of time the inhabitants of the West Caucasus, more than one million five hundred thousand Circassians (Adige, Abkhaz and Wubikh people), were forced to leave their land in famine after all their villages and fields were burned and destroyed. They were exiled from their land to Ottoman Empire under inhumane conditions. Sochi region, where the 2014 Winter Olympics will be held, was the center that the parliament of independent and free Circassia was gathering until 1864. After the Russian invasion it was not only the Circassians removed from their land but also all their cultural heritage and even their graves were completely destroyed brutally. Today in the state museums of Sochi there is nothing displayed related to Circassians, the autochthonous people of that land for thousands of years. The real ancient history of Sochi extends to Anatolian Hattis, fam ...

THE CONDITION OF THE AHLUS SUNNAH IN IRAQ UNDER SHI’I RULE Up until the 15th century Iran’s population was of the Alhus Sunnah wal Jama’ah, following Shafi`i and Hanafi legal rites. Shah Ismail I, the founder of the Safavid Dynasty of Iran, was the first to enforce a brutal military conversion of the Ahl’ Sunnah to Shiism. This dismaying and alarming trend was reignited by the American invasion into Iraq (2003) and continues unabated under the Shi’i government led by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, and the militant Shia cleric Muqtada Sadr. Justification to torture and destroy the Ahlus Sunnah creed in post-war Iraq is blamed on ousting Al-Qaeda from Iraq. The deeper reasons are geo-political. One of the main reasons why Ismail (I) and his followers pursued such a severe conversion policy was to give Iran and the Safavid lands as distinct and unique an identity as possible compared to their neighbouring Ahl’ Sunnah, Turkish military and political enemies, the Ottoman Empire. His methods of con ...
Here I go again, reflecting on the passage of time. In 1923 a young man was commenting unfavourably on Oliver Cromwell. A mature lady of his acquaintance rebuked him: "You should never speak ill of Cromwell. My first husband's first wife's first husband knew him well and said what a considerate and kind man he was." It was 1923 and Cromwell died in 1658. The story is attested, but it involves marriages more to do with the transmission of property than young love. She was 91, born in 1832, and had married in 1848 a much older man. He had married in 1784 a much older woman (property reasons, I'm sure) whose first marriage in 1720 had been to a man who in his youth had been Cromwell's servant. We are going to hear much this year about the First World War.

Glimpses into AMU History The Turkish Lady Who Came to Aligarh Almost a Century Ago Khalida Adeeb Khanum, the famous Turkish writer, journalist and political activist, was one of the leaders of the women's liberation movement and promotion of female education in Turkey in the twilight years of the Ottoman Empire. Later, following Turkish defeat in the First World War, she joined up with Mustafa Kamal Ataturk in the armed struggle to rid Turkey of the Western occupying forces and to establish a secular, democratic constitution. She was hugely popular among Indian Muslims. Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad Ansari, the venerated leader of the Indian freedom movement, invited her in 1935 to visit India and to deliver a series of extension lectures at the Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi. She travelled extensively, visiting many cities in India and meeting almost all important leaders. She also visited AMU, and was enthusiastically welcomed at the Student's Union by a lively body of students. Following are a few of her recorded .. ...
Circassia was a small independent nation on the northeastern shore of the Black Sea. For no reason other than ethnic hatred, over the course of hundreds of raids the Russians drove the Circassians from their homeland and deported them to the Ottoman Empire. At least 600,000 people lost their lives to massacre, starvation, and the elements while hundreds of thousands more were forced to leave their homeland. By 1864, three-fourths of the population was annihilated, and the Circassians had become one of the first stateless peoples in modern history. — Walter Richmond, The Circassian Genocide [28]
Praying for the nations: Montenegro ~ 8 Feb 2014   Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.  He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.     Background:  The use of the name Crna Gora or Black Mountain (Montenegro) began in the 13th century in reference to a highland region in the Serbian province of Zeta. The later medieval state of Zeta maintained its existence until 1496 when Montenegro finally fell under Ottoman rule. Over subsequent centuries Montenegro managed to maintain a level of autonomy within the Ottoman Empire. From the 16th to 19th centuries, Montenegro was a theocracy ruled by a series of bishop princes; in 1852, it transformed into a secular principality. Montenegro was recognized as an independent sovereign principality at the Congress of Berlin in 1878. After World War I, during which Montenegro fought on the side of the Allies, Montenegro was absorbed by the Kingdom of Serbs, ...
LEADERS HOLDING A MODERN CONCEPTION OF ISLAM MUST COME TOGETHER AND BE ROLE MODELS FOR THEIR PEOPLES If Iran held a modern world view it could do great service to the system of the Mahdi. That person is not using modern language, but the ground is pitch black. They are having him talk on a pitch black foundation. Maybe only 50 people with a modern way of thinking might emerge from Iran. But how many people who think the opposite way? At least 50 million. It is very good for an Iranian head of state, president, to espouse a modern view. Saudi Arabia has some princes who really advocate a modern conception of Islam. If these people came together and held secret or open meetings they could give people very significant messages. God will never permit Islam to reign as anything other than modern Islam. People fail to grasp this. That is why the Ottoman Empire collapsed. They are trying to bring back the system that brought the Ottoman Empire down. Did the Ottoman Empire not collapse in that same wind, my broth ...
The Siege of Khartoum Played out for 313 days (March 13, 1884 – January 26, 1885), the Siege of Khartoum remains one the most defining moments of the Sudan we know today. The Kordofan and Darfur regions that have in the recent years interested the International Criminal Court were the forte of Muhammad Ahmad who declared himself the Mahdi – “the promised redeemer of the Islamic world” thus the name of his soldiers Mahdist forces. Sudan, then under the control of Ottoman Empire through the Egyptian Khedive faced a revolt from the resident tribes under the leadership of Mahdi. It started with Ottoman Empire when they retook Egypt after withdrawal of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1798 and the successive leaders known as “Khedives” in Egypt wished to control the whole of River Nile. This desire to control River Nile in the upstream led to colonisation of Sudan. The opening of Suez Canal in 1869 and power struggles in Egypt in 1872 brought in the British interest who were taken in as advisors. Africans can ...
""" The Arab revolt would be useful to the British Empire because it marches with our immediate aims, the break-up of the Islamic 'bloc' and the defeat and disruption of the Ottoman Empire. The states the Sharifs would set up to succeed the Turks would be harmless to ourselves. The Arabs are even less stable than the Turks. If properly handled they would remain in a state of political mosaic, a tissue of small jealous principalities incapable of cohesion.""" Thomas Edward Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) in 1916
From 1900-1917 Wills are found in Washington, DC Archives beginning with Islamic salutations "With the Name of God Amen" with names like Hannah Henderson, Fontaine Mahmood, James Moore, Mary Newman, Edward Quader, and Anne Yarrow. In 1903, Mohammed Asa Abu-Howar arrives in New York. Moves to Washington, DC. He becomes a successful builder as A. Joseph Howar, who backed the construction of the Islamic Center.

Can someone tell me why the Ottoman Empire joined the Central Powers during the war
The Armenian Genocide The Armenian Genocide (1915-23) was the deliberate and systematic destruction of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I. It was characterized by massacres, and deportations involving forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees, with the total number of deaths reaching 1.5 million. The majority of Armenian Diaspora communities were formed by the Genocide survivors. Present-day Turkey denies the fact of the Armenian Genocide, justifying the atrocities as “deportation to secure Armenians”. Only a few Turkish intellectuals, including Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk and scholar Taner Akcam, speak openly about the necessity to recognize this crime against humanity. The Armenian Genocide was recognized by Uruguay, Russia, France, Lithuania, the Italian Chamber of Deputies, majority of U.S. states, parliaments of Greece, Cyprus, Argentina, Belgium and Wales, National Council of Switzerland, Chamber of Commons of C ...
In late June 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, Bosnia. An escalation of threats and mobilization orders followed the incident, leading by mid-August to the outbreak of World War I, which pitted Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire (the so-called Central Powers) against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan (the Allied Powers). The Allies were joined after 1917 by the United States. The four years of the Great War--as it was then known--saw unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction, thanks to grueling trench warfare and the introduction of modern weaponry such as machine guns, tanks and chemical weapons. By the time World War I ended in the defeat of the Central Powers in November 1918, more than 9 million soldiers had been killed and 21 million more wounded. The Treaty of Versailles, signed in 1919, determined post-war borders from Europe to the Middle East, established the League of Nations as an international peace ...

Origin of the emblems The red cross emblem is an inversion of the Swiss flag, which shows a white cross on a red background. This recognises the historic connection between Switzerland and the original Geneva Convention of 1864. But while the red cross emblem has no intentional religious meaning, the symbol reminded soldiers from the Ottoman Empire (modern-day Turkey) of the crusaders of the Middle Ages and so in 1876 they began using a red crescent instead.
Understanding Militant Jihadist Takfiri groups There are 1 billion Muslims on this planet not all of them are terrorist any more than all Christians kill doctors to stop them from performing abortions. Only 10%-20% at most are these ultra-extremist who believe its Gods will to convert or kill everyone with a different ideology than them. In my Opinion weather you call God the father of creation, Allah, Yahweh, or the Great Spirit it’s the Same god just filtered through a different culture. If God Created us then doesn’t it stand to reason that he has a plan for our lives? Any way to understand militant groups any group but Hezbullah, Hamas, Al Qaeda, Or the Muslim brotherhood its important to understand. 1) The Muslim brotherhood is granddaddy of militant Sunni groups started in 1920s in Egypt to resist the occupation and oppression of native Egyptians by the English. A backlash against western domination of the Middle East which started in 1918 with dissolving of the Ottoman Empire after they and Ger ...
SOME THOUGHTS FOR THIS DAY which is International Holocaust Memorial Day - this year, themed Journeys. Not just a day of remembering the 6 million Jews, and the *** Gypsies. Communists, Muslims, Confessional Protestant Christians and Partisans , killed by the Nazis on Hitler's orders, who was, believe it or not, a Roman Catholic, with the idea in his bewildered head of setting up a Teutonic master race based on the medieval Holy Roman Empire [which had later survived as the Austro-Hungarian Germanic Empire until 1914 associated with the Ottoman Empire ]- but also a Day to remember all other acts of Genocide as in Argentina, Angola, Biafra, Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia, the Central African Republic and Syria because of Humanity's insatiable inhumanity to each other. We do well to remember too the Catholic/Protestant wars in France and England and the general hostility of different nations and races towards one another, when we all arise from one basic human stock. In August this year we mark the beg ...
Anzac Day /ˈænzæk/ is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served." Originally 25 April every year was to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Anzac Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, Pitcairn Islands, and Tonga. It is no longer observed as a national holiday in Papua New Guinea or Samoa.
Politics of interest and the affair of Ummah Aijaz Hajini Ever since the Ottoman Empire collapsed in 1924 the Muslims began shattered by cyclic miseries created by colonialism, imperialism, underdevelopment, mutual rivalry and most notably the loss of an exclusive identity (Ummah). Since then collapsed Ummah began to devote the resources and personnel with which it would be possible to stick together and fight jointly against the forces of deprivation and subordination and for this purpose both the government and Non Government Organizations began to fashion the avenues for achieving this objective, but the motive of personal interest drive them away from the cause of Islamic integration and more towards national oriented benefits and desired goals of personal interest. Most states aspiring to be leaders of Islam, such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey and Indonesia and potentially began competing for influence for which no one of them was in a position to mediate conflicts among each other and no o ...
A Brief History of Halabja Halabja is a very ancient town, dating back to the Lullubis era. It is believed that the ancient city of Khar Khar 2000 BC is today’s Halabja. In the year 641, the Islamic Army freed the town from the Sassanid Empire and became a part of the Muslim Empire. During the Abbasid Caliphate, between 959-1015 AD, the Princedom of Hassnawya reigned the town followed by the reign of the Princedom of Annazi between 1016-1117 AD. The Town was reconstructed by the dukes in 1650 near the present Takya mosque. It was an affiliate of Gullanbar (Khurmal) subdistrict Before it was announced a district. Then, in 1889, it became a district during the Ottoman Empire and Othman Pasha Jaff was assumed mayor which was simultaneous with Najaf district announcement. The first school was built in 1919. According to British statistic in 1920, the Town had a population of 6509 and it administrated Penjwin, Khurmal, Warmawa and Darbandikhan. In the 1920s, the Halabja people played a great role in assistin ...

Following yesterday's post on POCs in Europe. This from a comment by Piermarco Terminiello: From the 15th century Lisbon was the hub of the African slave trade. However (although obviously still vile) European slavery at the time was generally less brutal than later plantation slavery, with manumission much more frequent, and sometimes after a relatively short space of time. Therefore in short order a population of first and second generation free blacks spread across (mostly) southern Europe. The most illustrious example being Alessandro de'Medici, the first Duke of Tuscany, who scholarly consensus agrees was born to a black or mulatta servant (Simonetta da Collevecchio). there were also black African populations in Europe before that, in Andalusia, and in Sicily even after the return of Christian rule in the 11th century. There were also black Africans in the neighbouring Ottoman Empire and the Barbary states (and captured crews of Barbary vessels were often made into farm hands or what have you). The t ...

THE MOMENT OF THE TRUTH ABOUT THE LIE OF SO CALLED Armenian Genocide (1) 1) The first Prime Minister of Armenia,Kaçaznuni says,"We declared the war against Turks. We were riot for the dream of Armenia from sea to sea. We were the cause of the events." 2) In 1914, in Venetian Italy,a map and additional chart was pressed personally by the Armenians,and according to this chart, Armenian population in Ottoman Empire is 1,200 million and with Ottoman Asia region the total number is 1,400 million.And again, this map with the chart was pressed by personally Armenians in EUROPE. However, American Armenian diaspora claims that the number is 1,500 million in SO CALLED Armenian Genocide in 1915. 3) The French Consul M.ZARCESKI,in Van city of Ottoman Empire in 1914,reported to his government that the Armenian population in the entire Ottoman Empire was 1,015.800. 4) The Ottoman Empire determined the Armenian population 1,300.000 at that time.

Nadine Dorries just confirmed the ambassador of Bongo Bongo land forgives UKIP and is keen for them to work in coalition with the Tory party. She refuses to even consider the option of allowing the Ottoman Empire entry into the EU. She's fine with immigration from The Holy Roman Empire but says there needs to be "restrictions" on those from Zim. Rhodesia. And as for Spanish asylum seekers fleeing the Inquisition, she strongly insists there is no place for heresy in Provincia Britannia. However on the bright side she is now off for trade talks to meet Montezuma of the Aztec Empire. William Hague has confirmed this as official foreign policy. However at this time Nadine can not be found to comment.

Seeme Gull Khan Hasan: "PEOPLE SAY TO ME WHAT HAPPENED TO MUSLIMS? Yes we had great achievements in the past. We Muslims were number one in many subjects if not all. What happened to us ? this man and his fellow Country men happened to us. I have not checked if this paragraph is true word for word, but I am sure these or similar words were said. Colonization destroyed the Muslims. It divided us and it destroyed us and left us too weak to move forward. The break up of the Ottoman Empire truly hurt us. Thank You for letting us see for our-self we can rise again. We are working hard to come out of the darkness you laid for us. Year by year, we are working hard to educate our youth. Learning technology. Learning how to achieve success. Learning new things and reviving our old Cultures of Art and Architecture.We are back. Now I hope you will understand and not come back to destroy us again. Let us be."
System of the Ottoman Empire Since the birth of Islam in the Arabian Peninsula, Muslims, Christians and Jews survived and often thrived through tolerant interactions and respected partnerships. The Ottoman Empire created an official government institution to maintain a tolerant peace between the diverse occupants of their rapidly expanding empire, the so-called millet system. Nevertheless, the term millet has several definitions until the reform period, or Tanzimāt (Ursinus). In the Quran, millet frequently refers to the “millat Ibrahim”, meaning the religion of Abraham and rarely as milla for only Judaism or Christianity. There are also references to millet as “religion, confession, or rite” from 1158 to 1833 in various internal and international communications between the Ottoman Empire and other, mostly Non-Muslim, empires. Occasionally, millet was translated in the West as “sovereign nations” and especially in terms of rebellion. Commonly, the definition of millet has been “religious co ...
Maurice Abravanel (January 6, 1903 – September 22, 1993) was an American Jewish conductor of classical music. He is remembered as the conductor of the Utah Symphony Orchestra for over 30 years. Abravanel was born in Salonika, Rumelia Eyalet, Ottoman Empire (modern Thessaloniki, Greece). He came from an illustrious Sephardic Jewish family, which was expelled from Spain in 1492 (see Isaac Abrabanel). Abravanel's ancestors settled in Salonika in 1517, and his parents were both born there. In 1909, the Abravanel family moved to Lausanne, Switzerland, where the father, Edouard de Abravanel, was a successful pharmacist. For several years, the Abravanels lived in the same house as Ernest Ansermet, the conductor of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. The young Abravanel played four-hand piano arrangements with Ansermet, began to compose, and met composers such as Darius Milhaud and Igor Stravinsky. He was passionate about music and knew he wanted a career as a musician. He became the pianist for the municipal t ...

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, later George Gordon Noel, 6th Baron Byron, FRS (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824), commonly known simply as Lord Byron, was an English poet and a leading figure in the Romantic movement. Among Byron's best-known works are the lengthy narrative poems Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and the short lyric She Walks in Beauty. He is regarded as one of the greatest British poets and remains widely read and influential. He travelled all over Europe especially in Italy and then fought the Ottoman Empire in the Greek War of Independence, for which Greeks revere him as a national hero. He died at age 36 from a fever contracted while in Missolonghi in Greece. Often described as the most flamboyant and notorious of the major Romantics, Byron was celebrated in life for aristocratic excesses, including huge debts, numerous love affairs, rumours of a scandalous incestuous liaison with his half-sister, and self-imposed exile.

United Muslim Ummah:A Basic Need For Peace Posted By Dharul Huda At 8:43 PM . Labels:Quraan, Ebooks, Articles,Speeches,Photos English Muslim Unity: A Basic Need For Peace By Bushra Tarrar The unity of Muslims the world over is the need of the hour, not for any aggressive design but for own survival, salvation, growth and development. Only unity can bring them the glory that the world of Islam once enjoyed. There will then be a third -world bloc (of the Muslim countries) in this emerging multipolar world that would be powerful enough to stand the rigours and the pressures of Zionist dominated capitalistic bloc or any other power that has expansionists designs. This unity has to move beyond mere lip service but translated in concrete terms. Muslims must understand the divide and rule policy of the West.
