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.

"And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not bow down to the sun nor to the moon, but only bow down (prostrate) to "Allah" Who created them, if you worship Him." [Holy Quran 41:37] What is the significance of the crescent moon in Islam? Answer: The crescent moon and star often seen on mosques and Islamic archecture is actually a symbol of the last rulers of the Muslims called the Ottoman Empire. The Qur'ân answers this question before you asked it. Read this verse: "They ask you about the new moons. Say: These are signs to mark fixed periods of time for mankind and for the pilgrimage." [Holy Quran 2:189] The real question here should be: "Why do they keep lying?" EXPERT(? Robert Morey) ON ISLAM - SAYS - "Muslims Worship A 'moon-god' called "Allah" Is it True? Is there proof?" Now read for yourself the real truth:
A little history on how Iraq sprang from the Ottoman Empire via
Iraq is a mess. Eleven years after the U.S.-led coalition invaded to remove Saddam Hussein, and three years after the war was declared over and American troops withdrawn, it appears that what once was a promising future for the nation is crumbling. But it seems that modern Iraq's prospects have been ill starred from the beginning. After the Ottoman Empire fell at the conclusion of World War I, Iraq and several of the other nations in the Middle East were created by the stroke of a pen. Literally. Britain's Colonial Secretary, Winston Churchill, essentially drew the map of the modern Middle East. He once noted that he created the nation of Jordan "with the stroke of a pen one Sunday afternoon in Cairo." Such arbitrary lines defined the nations of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. Prime Minister David Lloyd George admiringly commented that in Iraq, Churchill had turned "a mere collection of tribes into a nation." In truth, what Churchill created was a time bomb. His new nation included heavy n ...
Numerous historians have asserted that Nicholas I of Russia considered it worthwhile to keep the Ottoman Empire intact in the first half of his reign, and this was laid out in a memorandum by Karl von Nesselrode, the Tsar's German foreign minister. But why? The policy of Catherine, of Paul, and of Alexander had been the destruction of Turkey. Arguably it had been enshrined in the precepts of Peter the Great. Nicholas had the chance and didn't take it. At the Treaty of Adrianople (1829) Russia merely confirmed the Treaties of Akkerman (1826) and Bucharest (1812), while pushing the Russian border in the Caucasus to Akhaltsikhe, with the Circassian littoral including the ports of Anapa and the future Novorossisk. In addition, the Russian border in the Balkans was pushed to the Saint George branch of the Danube, placing the Danube Delta entirely under Russian control, and subordinated the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia to joint Ottoman-Russian patronage. As considerable as these gains were, they wer ...
Me because I said that John Calvin, Henry VIII and Martin Luther were involved in the fall of the Ottoman Empire
"Iraq is not a real country - simply a line drawn after the Ottoman Empire after WWII." (Howard Dean, MSNBC) President Malaki was living in Iran in exile for 20 years, as a Shiite." The current Sunni rebellion is based on Shiite Malaki's successful attempt to marginalize them. Now, Shiite Iran, Shiite Syria and America will (paradoxically) join forces to thwart the vicious slaughter by the marauding Sunni insurgents, ISIS, bearing down on Baghdad. Though Republican NeoCons - who got us into this sectarian quagmire in 2003 - want full military involvement - Obama will have none of it. Expect Drone/Air strikes, but no Republican-advised boots on the ground. An all-out Civil War in Iraq is in no one's interests. The Sunni current slaughter of northern Kurds will force intervention, if it continues. ISIS - The Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (that's Syria) is an offshoot of an earlier group, al-Qaida. As the prescient Vice President Joe Biden told us years ago, (and I suggested in 2003), the Kurds, the Shiites ...
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 ...

itself, to further their imperialistic objectives. That a British spy by the name of Hempher was responsible for shaping of the extreme tenets of Wahhabism was mentioned in a Turkish work, Mir'at al-Haramain , by Ayyub Sabri Pasha between 1933-1938. British policy in its colonies often involved the creation of deviant sects, in order to Divide and Conquer, as was the case with the Ahmadiyya sect of Islam in India in the nineteenth century. The details of this conspiracy are outlined in a little known document by the name of The Memoirs of Mr. Hempher published in series (episodes) in the German paper Spiegel, and later on in a prominent French paper. A Lebanese doctor translated the document to the Arabic language and from there on it was translated to English and other languages. The document is a first-hand account by Hempher of his mission for his government, who sent him to the Middle East to discover ways to undermine the Ottoman Empire. Among the vices the British were to promote were racism and nat ...

In The Netherlands, Armenians have created a monument to commemorate the Armenian Genocide. So what does the Turkish government do? It subsides Turkish people to demonstrate against this monument. But it is quite clear, there is so much historical proof. Successive Turkish governments between the 1890s and the 1920s wanted to rid themselves of as many Armenians as possible. In 1890 there were some 2.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. Between 1894 and 1896, the Sultân had mass killings organized, leading to approximately 200,000 victims. During World War I the Ottoman Empire sided with Germany and Austria against England, France and Russia. Russia tried to enlist the Armenians to take up arms against the Ottomans but, overall, it was not very successful. However, the Young Turks regime that in 1915 succeeded the sultân, used the war as a pretext for mass killings of the Armenians on a nation-wide scale in 1915-1916. Mustapha Kemal Atatürk (Father of the Turks), who built Turkey as a secular sta ...
Does anyone know why was it that Charles II of Spain left the Spanish throne to a Bourbon (Philip V of Spain) and not to a Habsburg (Charles VI Holy Roman Emperor)? After all France had a history of "animosity " against Spain and not only that but they also had united with non-Christians (Ottoman Empire) and Protestants in the thirty year war to battle Catholic kingdoms, even though they were Catholics.
THE TURKISH FLAG is a hang over from the now defunct Ottoman Empire, to do with mythology, moons, sun, stars and blood!
Let's not under estimate our enemy! Luke 10:19-20 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. In 1917, the Ottoman Empire controlled the city of Aqaba which seemed impregnable to any attack. Behind the city in every direction was a vast desert, and overlooking the city's harbor were huge naval guns protecting it against any enemy attack from the sea. But on July 6, 1917, Lawrence of Arabia bravely led a force of irregular Arab cavalry across this vast desert wasteland and swept into Aqaba from the north. In the surprise attack, Aqaba fell because its gigantic naval guns faced the wrong way and could not protect the city from the invading forces. Suddenly the Turkish hold over Palestine was broken, to be replaced by the British mandate, which eventually led to the creati . ...
Judaism:- - Judaism is the religion of the Jews. Judaism was the first religion based on monotheism, the belief in one God. Jews traditionally do not encourage converts The Jews are the only people in the world who have found hostility in every country in which they settled in any numbers A Brief history of the Jewish people:- - The history of the Jews, as described in the Bible, begins with the patriarch Abraham. Abraham was the first to forsake the polytheism and idol worshipping of his people for a belief in one God. Abraham's son, Isaac, and Isaac's son, Jacob, are also considered to be patriarchs by the Jews. The story of Joseph, one of Jacob's twelve sons, is also found in the Bible. He was sold as a slave to the Egyptians by his own brothers. As a result of a famine, the remainder of Joseph's family resettled in Egypt where they and their descendants lived in peace for several generations. In the Book of Exodus, the story of Moses and his liberation of the Jews from Egyptian bondage is told. Moses ...

Via Jay Goldberg. The reference here to 1922 adverts to the San Remo Conference held in 1920 by the Principal Allied Powers which adopted binding resolutions to anneal the outcome of World War I following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire. The so-called Mideast resolutions, constituent to that consensus were ratified two years later via writ of the League of Nations over the objections of Turkey (which accounts for the delay between the two dates in question). Because the provenance of this positive declarative international law pre-dates the UN the juridical standing of the resolution trumps any subsequent international resolution emanating from the latter body, absent a specific repudiation of San Remo (WHICH HAS NEVER ISSUED!). And, if you think about the standing of the proposition as consensus international law preceding the formation of the UN, it's valence as described is logically ineluctable. Without this principle as foundation the whole body of international law preceding the emergence of the UN ...

Before the tears get louder... Shortly before His crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus Christ delivered a major prophecy of end-time events, recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. He was asked by His disciples: "When will these things be? And what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?" (Matthew:24:3). Jesus responded with a description of conditions and events that would lead up to His second coming. Moreover, He said that when these signs became evident, His return would occur within one generation (Matthew:24:34). Could this be that generation? Throughout the nearly 2,000 years since Christ gave His prophecy, many have thought that theirs was the time of His return—and turned out to be wrong, of course. But interestingly, there are a number of prophecies in the Bible that could not be fulfilled until our modern era, the post–World War II period. 1. The human race would have the ability to exterminate itself In Matthew:24:22, describing world conditions prior to His second ...
Slavery in Islam and how does shariah want muslims to treat slaves: Slavery is a disgrace on the history of mankind. Like a weed, it grew on most lands, whereas as a fruit of Islam, tens of verses in the Koran and hundreds of Hadiths (sayings) have sown its seeds from Medina along to Iran, Middle East, central Asia, Africa, and Europe. Under the Prophet Muhammad, his direct successors ( Rashidun Caliphs: Abu bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali), and all along the way to Islamic Caliphs of the Ottoman Empire, millions of defeated nations or kidnapped non-Muslims have been enslaved. Islamic approach to slavery argues that there are three manners to enslave people: 1-” Dhimmis” (non-Muslim communities under Islamic state) are only allowed to live under an Islamic rule if they pay a tax “jizieh”. Those dhimmis who cannot pay the tax, cab be enslaved. 2- After an occupation of non-Muslim, the non-Muslim men, if not killed, can be along with their women and children captured as booty of war and thus can be ensl ...
Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, "Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great *** that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication." Revelation 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. It can be seen here that the *** rides upon the seven headed beast, which represent the seven empires that have existed throughout world history (see Daniel 7 and Rev. 13) Revelation 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE ...

1915, New Years Day, Broken Hill. A train carrying 1200 Australian civilians was on it's way to Silverton on New Years Day, 1915. 40 open carriages carried men, women and children to the annual picnic held by the Manchester Unity Order of Oddfellows. 3 kilometers outside of Broken Hill, the train came under fire from two men, positioned 30 meters from the tracks on an embankment, who discharged 20 to 30 rounds before fleeing the area. They were flying an Ottoman flag. 17 year old Alma Cowie died instantly; William Shaw was also killed. Shaw's daughter, Lucy, was injured, as were six others. These were Mary Kavanagh, George Stokes, Thomas Campbell, Alma Crocker, Rose Crabb and Constable Robert Mills.

Who is the AC, the *** of Babylon, and the 3500 yr connection between Israel/Arabs/Muslims, and prophecy to be fulfilled soon. How to understand what the Islam/Jewish connection is, who the Mahdi/AC is, where he will come from according to scripture, and links, and videos for proof. Also who the *** of Babylon is. Bibilical proof of Jewish/Arab resentment 3500 yrs ago: If the Arab nations surrounding Israel can be traced back to Abraham through his son Ishmael, then the roots of Jewish/Arab resentment can be traced back 3,500 years. This shows how obvious to whom the Lord’s wrath is against, how Islam will come against Israel, and with whom the Peace treaty will be signed. Esau's descendants want their inheritance that Esau forsook returned to them. Even though Esau was Isaac's first son, he forfeited his inheritance to Jacob and turned against his people, Israel. Even though Isaac had told Esau not to marry into that pagan people (Canaanites), Esau married his half cousin, Ishmael’s daughter, w ...
Hindu-Muslim Unity, a dream of Gandhi, was ideally the solution to British hegemony over India. The political fortunes of Muslims with the carving up of the Ottoman Empire in 1920, and the foundation of the secular state in Turkey by Kemal Ataturk and his "Young Turks" put an end to that dream. The Muslim League, headed by Indian politician Jenna, voted for Pakistan. The violence of civil war was continual until Muslims were forced out of India by British, Sepoy and Sikh mercenaries. Pakistan has been a violent menace to itself and the world since 1949, as the forces against secular freedoms there often mandate Muslim doctrines of dictatorship over all others.

ISLAM & THE WEST’S ELITE: This post is a brief overview of the Illuminati & Freemasonry within the Moslem world. It is a follow up on previous articles. (There are false stereotypes of Muslims & Freemasons, and this post is not trying to encourage stereotypes. Each person should be evaluated as his or her own person.) POWER, MONEY, SEX & MIND CONTROL. Britain & France were major colonial powers within the Islamic world, and Spain & Italy were also on a lesser scale. Many of the Islamic countries only shook off colonial rule after WW 2. During colonial rule, the mother country had enormous power and as Britain & France were ruled by the Illuminati, one can see who had direct control over much of the Moslem world. If a Moslem wanted a position of power he had to line with The Power. After colonialism, many Moslems were buyable with bribes. For example, Lockhead & Northrup, whose agent was Adnan N. Khashoggi, paid enormous bribes to Saudi officials via Khashoggi to insure their products were bought by the ...

Evidence of an early settlement in Lebanon was found in Byblos, which is considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world,.[8] The evidence dates back to earlier than 5000 BC. Archaeologists discovered remnants of prehistoric huts with crushed limestone floors, primitive weapons, and burial jars left by the Neolithic and Chalcolithic fishing communities who lived on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea over 7,000 years ago.[18] Lebanon was a part of northern Canaan, and consequently became the homeland of Canaanite descendants – the Phoenicians, a seafaring people that spread across the Mediterranean before the rise of Cyrus the Great.[19] Their most famous colonies were Carthage in today’s Tunisia and Cádiz in today’s Spain. The Phoenicians are best known as the inventors of the alphabet, among many other things. After two centuries of Persian rule, Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great attacked and burned Tyre, the most prominent Phoenician city. Throughout the subsequen ...

"It should be remembered that in 1918, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Britain and France were handed more than 5,000,000 square miles to divvy up and 99% was given to the Arabs to create countries that did not exist previously. Less than 1% was given as a Mandate for the re-establishment of a state for the Jews on both banks of the Jordan River. In 1921, to appease the Arabs once again, another three quarters of that less than 1% was given to a fictitious state called Trans-Jordan." (Jack Berger, May 31, 2004.)
*** THE CRIMEAN WAR The Crimean War (October 1853 – February 1856) was a conflict in which Russia lost to an alliance of France, Britain, the Ottoman Empire, and Sardinia. While neutral, the Austrian Empire also played a role in defeating the Russians. The immediate issue involved the rights of Christians in the Holy Land, which was controlled by the Ottoman Empire. The French promoted the rights of Catholics, while Russia promoted those of the Orthodox. The longer-term causes involved the decline of the Ottoman Empire, and the unwillingness of Britain and France to allow Russia to gain territory and power at Ottoman expense. Russia lost and the Ottomans gained a twenty-year respite from Russian pressure. The Christians were granted a degree of official equality and the Orthodox gained control of the Christian churches in dispute. Russia survived, gained a new appreciation for its religious diversity, and launched a reform program with far-reaching consequences. Russia and the Ottoman Empire went to war ...

For the last 50 years, the Jews have their sovereign Israel, and control its governance. After more than 1900 years, this majority status is new for them, as new is the power they wield over themselves and the goyim minorities within its borders, and over the two million neighboring Palestinians under Israeli military occupation. Yet the Jewish majority is all too conscious of being a national, ethnic and religious minority in the Middle East. The Jews desire to be at least tolerated, if not equally respected, yet not at the expense of their own identity and "particularity" as a Jewish people in its own State, and even more so, never, never at the cost of its own national security. In 50 years the new State never enjoyed the luxury of floating on the world’s margins until it could enjoy a child’s quiet innocence, then endure the minor growing pains of trial-and-error adolescence, then become politically mature with a seasoned democratic tradition. Israel never had an innocence to lose. Military and po ...

Tulip It comes from the genus of Tulipa which belongs to the family of Liliaceae. There are 109 known species and the nativity seems to extend over half the world’s land mass, from Temperate to mountainous regions of Southern Europe, Anatolia in Turkey to Israel and Palestine, North Africa and Iran even the Northwest of China especially in the depth of Pamir, Hindu Kush and Tien Shan mountain range. They are observed to gain a height of mere 4 inches till 28 inches. Tulips are originally assumed to have come from Netherlands but it was the Ottoman Empire that first commercialized it.

How multicultural was the Ottoman empire? Calendar says everything.
During the 16th and early 17th centuries, the Zaporozhian Cossacks often conducted amphibious raids on ports along the Black Sea, in the Crimean Khanate and the Ottoman Empire. With that in mind, I have begun researching ways to navigate at sea. Apparently in 1594, an Englishman named Captain John Davis invented the "backstaff", which allows one to measure the height of the Sun (and thus latitude) without actually having to look at it. This is a huge improvement over previous instruments such as the astrolabe. I wonder if I could purchase or build one and learn to use it? I seem to have infinite ideas to waste time.

USA & The Middle East: The U.S. and the Middle East Since 1945 A Guide to Mideast Policy from Harry Truman to George W. Bush The first time a Western power got soaked in the politics of oil in the Middle East was toward the end of 1914, when British soldiers landed at Basra, in southern Iraq, to protect oil supplies from neighboring Persia. At the time the United States had little interest in Middle East oil or in imperial designs on the region. Its overseas ambitions were focused south toward Latin America and the Caribbean (remember the Maine?), and west toward east Asia and the Pacific. When Britain offered to share the spoils of the defunct Ottoman Empire after World War I in the Middle East, President Woodrow Wilson declined. It was only a temporary reprieve from creeping involvement that began during the Truman Administration. It’s not been a happy history. But it’s necessary to understand that past, even if only in its general outlines, to better make sense of the present -- especially regardin ...
On This Day... On May 30, 1913, a peace treaty is signed ending the First Balkan War, in which the newly aligned Slavic nations of Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Greece had driven Turkish forces out of Macedonia, a territory of the Ottoman Empire located in the tumultuous Balkans region of southeastern Europe. After rebellion in Macedonia—led by a secret society of nationalists known as the Young Turks—shook the stability of the sultan's hold on Ottoman territory in Europe in 1908, the Austro-Hungarian empire acted quickly to annex the dual Balkan provinces of Bosnia-Herzegovina and to encourage Bulgaria, also under Turkish rule, to proclaim its independence. Austria-Hungary's actions clearly upset the delicate balance of power in the Balkans. The small, boisterous monarchy of Serbia was outraged by the annexation, having long regarded Bosnia-Herzegovina as part of its own rightful territory due to their shared South Slavic heritage. Meanwhile, czarist Russia—an important supporter of Serbia and t ...

Pope Nicholas V Dum Diversas is a papal bull issued on June 18, 1452 by Pope Nicholas V, that is credited by some with "ushering in the West African slave trade."[1] It authorized Afonso V of Portugal to conquer Saracens and pagans and consign them to indefinite slavery.[2] Pope Calixtus III reiterated the bull in 1456 with Etsi cuncti, renewed by Pope Sixtus IV in 1481 and Pope Leo X in 1514 with Precelse denotionis. The concept of the consignment of exclusive spheres of influence to certain nation states was extended to the Americas in 1493 by Pope Alexander VI with Inter caetera.[3][4][5][6] Issued one year before the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, the bull may have been intended to begin another crusade against the Ottoman Empire.
Does History keep repeating? Empire = Government in my book... Sir John Glubb, a British author and lecturer, argued that most empires generally don’t last longer than 250 years. Greek Empire? 231 years. Roman Empire? 207 years. Ottoman Empire? 250 years. Romanov Russian Empire? 234 years. British Empire? 250 years. The United States of America? Well, it's sitting at a ripe old age of 237 and deep in the midst of what Glubb called the Age of Decadence — the final stage of an empire that is marked by defensiveness, pessimism, materialism, frivolity, and the Welfare State. But we’re too big and powerful to fail! This is America, the land of freedom and opportunity. I’m sure the Greeks and the Romans felt much the same way. The fall of the Greek empire is, among other things, a story of a top-heavy government that could not tax enough producers to sustain a growing number of bureaucrats. Conflict and competition between city-states destroyed a sense of national unity. And the citizens were more inter ...

Fact 336 days to go: Missionaries were the first foreign eyewitnesses of the Armenian Genocide. With their successful evangelizing among Armenians of the Ottoman Empire, Protestant missionaries, mostly associated with the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM), had created an extensive network of schools, orphanages, hospitals, and colleges across Anatolia and Armenia. On account of US neutrality during the first three years of World War I, the missionaries were allowed to stay in the Ottoman Empire. Their institutions, however, were devastated by the destruction of the Armenian population. The missionaries made heroic attempts to provide for the care and feeding of the destitute, especially orphans, only to face hardships of their own at the hands of Turkish officials. Attempts to provide refuge proved futile and only provoked the ire of the government, which came to look upon them with increasing suspicion. Next to the US consuls, the American missionaries collectively became the s ...

This message is from Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb. I am heartbroken and crying tonight. Daoud Nasser and his family at The Tent of Nations Environmental and Educational Farm in the West Bank was invaded by Israel. Entire fields of grapes, apples, apricots, almonds, fig and olive trees were wiped out. Up to 1500 trees destroyed. Daoud and his family own the land, have papers dating from the Ottoman Empire. The picture below, painted in a cave on the land, demonstrates their legacy. The Nasser family has been persecuted mercilessly by five surrounding settlements, the IDF, and the Israeli government for decades. The Israeli authorities had had 13 demolition orders on the land, and forbade the building of any structures (including tents) and placed boulders on the exit and entrances to their farm, and has uprooted trees before. Getting to the farm from Bethlehem-a ten minute ride-can take at least an hour due to the circuitous route Palestinians are forced to follow… Those of us who know Daoud have been deeply imp ...
Ottoman Miniature or Turkish miniature was an art form in the Ottoman Empire, which can be linked to the Persian miniature tradition, as well as strong Chinese artistic influences. It was a part of the Ottoman Book Arts together with illumination (tezhip), calligraphy (hat), marbling paper (ebru) and bookbinding (cilt). The words taswir or nakish were used to define this art in Ottoman language. The studios the artists worked in were called Nakkashane. The miniatures were not signed. This is partly because of the world view of the tradition that rejected individualism. Another reason is that the works were not created entirely by one person: The head painter designed the composition of the scene and his apprentices drew the contours (which is called tahrir) with black or colored ink and then painted the miniature without creating an illusion of third dimension. The head painter, and much more often the scribe of the text were named and depicted in some of the manuscripts. The understanding of perspective ...

Habonim Dror Southern Africa is currently providing information, background, facts, figures, context and history in their campaign for a 2-state solution to the Israeli / Palestinian conflict; calling it Project 242 (“two for two”: 2 states for 2 nations). However, I think it’s time for some perspective on this issue. Not to prove a point or settle a score, but to share an intellectually honest and spiritually authentic point of view; another side to this whole story entirely. The most troubling part of Habonim’s Project 242 is the theoretical and hypothetical nature of the campaign: emotionally charged, passion-infused, heartstring-tugging – yet as useless as a plank of wood in a desert. Armed with all the facts and figures; all the statistics and consensus; all the rallying and campaigning – to what end? What will ever come of it? Nothing. As unjust as it seems, as unfair as it looks and as sad as it sounds, the Israeli / Palestinian issue is likely to continue on for many years in its curre ...

The problem with Aoun is that his devastating effect seems as endless as the emptiness of his followers' brains. This fraud is a calamity and a mass punishment that we probably deserve.

To write about Carlos II of Spain, the last Spanish Habsburg could be easy. "He was a lunatic, he was born from a lunatic, and he belonged to a family of lunatics." Seriously, his mother and father were niece and uncle. He was descended from his great great great grandparents Juana la loca (Joanna the Mad) and Philip the Handsome through three of their children. Whereas someone whose ascendants were all unrelated to their spouses would have 32 great great great grandparents, Carlos only had 14. But that would be to easy, and it would not make Carlos II justice, nor his ancestors, for to truly understand Carlos II, one must understand not only the Spanish Habsburgs, but Spain itself. I shall try my best to do just that. In old maps (as the one below), Spain stands at the extremity of Europe, and separated by the Pyrenees from the rest of the continent. Over a long period of time, stretching many centuries, the Iberians had wandered their own path of Christianity. Uniquely, Spain and Portugal had experience ...

Today In History: May 20, 1506: Christopher Columbus dies On May 20, 1506, the great Italian explorer Christopher Columbus dies in Valladolid, Spain. Columbus was the first European to explore the Americas since the Vikings set up colonies in Greenland and Newfoundland in the 10th century. He explored the West Indies, South America, and Central America, but died a disappointed man, feeling he had been mistreated by his patron, King Ferdinand of Spain. Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1451. Little is known of his early life, but he worked as a seaman and then a sailing entrepreneur. He became obsessed with the possibility of pioneering a western sea route to Cathay (China), India, and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia. At the time, Europeans knew no direct sea route to southern Asia, and the route via Egypt and the Red Sea was closed to Europeans by the Ottoman Empire, as were many land routes.

The Forts of St Elmo and St Angelo, The Great Siege of Malta took place in 1565 when the Ottoman Empire invaded the island of Malta , then held by the Knights Hospitaller . The Knights, together with between 400 Maltese men, women and children and approximately 2,000 footsoldiers won the siege, one of the bloodiest and most fiercely contested in history, and one which became one of the most celebrated events in sixteenth-century Europe. Voltaire said, "Nothing is better known than the siege of Malta," and it undoubtedly contributed to the eventual erosion of the European perception of Ottoman invincibility and marked a new phase in Spanish domination of the Mediterranean.

Spartacus c.109 - 71 BC Thracian Gladiator Spartacus was born in Thrace, became a soldier, and was captured by the Romans. He was sold as a slave to be made a gladiator. With 70 comrades, he escaped, hid on Mount Vesuvius, and raised a large army of rebel slaves. With his army he defeated two Roman legions. Spartacus intended to lead the slaves over the Alps and out of Italy, but the slaves forced him to march on Rome. A fresh Roman army under Crassus finally defeated Spartacus and his men. After his defeat, 6000 men were crucified along the Via Appia as a warning to other slaves. _ Slavery had become an important part of Roman life. They became rampant as the patricians became lazy and rich after the spoils of the Wars of Expansion reached Rome, and prisoners of war became a source of free labour. In the latter part of the 1st Century BC, war and piracy maintained a constant stream of slaves into Rome. Roman society had also degraded, as a result of the popularity of blood sports, especially gladiator fi ...

Foreign Power can’t rule but sow seed of hatred When the Mughal Empire was at its zenith; nobles, poets, artists, and architects from all over the Muslim world arrived in India in the hope of royal patronage at the Mughal court; and they were certainly not disappointed. They settled in the subcontinent and in recognition of their services, they were granted privileges, jagirs, powerful positions and titles. There are no historic records that show any evidence of the migration of Mughal aristocracy to other Muslim states for economic opportunities. As long as the Mughal power was stable, they had no feelings of insecurity. The situation, however, changed after the death of Aurangzeb in 1707; as the process of` decentralization began and regional powers challenged the authority of the Mughal emperor. At this juncture, the Mughal nobility reacted by migrating to Awadh and Hyderabad in search of new patrons. Those who chose to stay back at the royal court fell into a rather critical social and economic situ ...

Five Muslim inventions that changed the world: About 1,600,000,000 cups of coffee are consumed every day around the world. Billions of people rely on it as part of their daily routines. And yet, very few people are aware of the Muslim origins of this ubiquitous drink.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. 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.

19 May 1935 T.E. Lawrence, known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia, dies as a retired Royal Air Force mechanic living under an assumed name. The war hero, author, and archaeological scholar succumbed to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident six days before. Thomas Edward Lawrence was born in Tremadoc, Wales, in 1888. In 1896, his family moved to Oxford. Lawrence studied architecture and archaeology, for which he made a trip to Ottoman (Turkish)-controlled Syria and Palestine in 1909. In 1911, he won a fellowship to join an expedition excavating an ancient Hittite settlement on the Euphrates River. He worked there for three years and in his free time traveled and learned Arabic. In 1914, he explored the Sinai, near the frontier of Ottoman-controlled Arabia and British-controlled Egypt. The maps Lawrence and his associates made had immediate strategic value upon the outbreak of war between Britain and the Ottoman Empire in October 1914. Lawrence enlisted in the war and because of his expertise in Arab ...

As it became clear that Narendra Modi of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was going to win big in India’s massive national elections commentators began to read the tea leaves. Some looked to Israel. “Israel’s best friend in South Asia,” Palash Ghosh at International Business Times declared. Noting that the countries only established relations in 1991, he argued that the BJP had been an architect of warmer Israel ties in the early 2000s and pointed to Israeli business relationships that Modi had cultivated in Gujarat, where he was state governor since 2001. But outside of the realm of practical economic and political ties, the real reason Modi matters, in terms of Israel and other countries, are shared affinities for preserving uniqueness in a globalized multi-cultural world. Both India and Israel are nation states emphasizing a national and ancient religion. The BJP and Modi are often derided in the media as “hardline.” The BBC, for instance, claimed that “the Hindu hardline party ...

Islamic societies (500–1500 AD)[edit] Opium users in Java during the Dutch colonial period, circa 1870 As the power of the Roman Empire declined, the lands to the south, and east of the Mediterranean Sea became incorporated into the Islamic Empires. Some Muslims believe hadiths, such as in Sahih Bukhari, prohibits every intoxicating substance, though the use of intoxicants in medicine has been widely permitted by scholars.[16] Dioscorides' five-volume De Materia Medica, the precursor of pharmacopoeias, remained in use (with some improvements in Arabic versions[17]) from the 1st to 16th centuries, and described opium and the wide range of its uses prevalent in the ancient world.[18] Between 400 and 1200 AD, Arab traders introduced opium to China.[8][13][19] The Persian physician Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi ("Rhazes", 845–930 AD) maintained a laboratory and school in Baghdad, and was a student and critic of Galen; he made use of opium in anesthesia and recommended its use for the treatment of melancho ...
Order of AHEPA - May 19, 2014 AHEPA Remembers The Greek genocide, part of which is known as the Pontic genocide, was the systematic Ethnic Cleansing of the Christian Ottoman Greek population from its historic homeland in Asia Minor, central Anatolia, and Pontus during World War I and its aftermath (1914–23). It was instigated by the government of the Ottoman Empire against the Greek population of the Empire and it included massacres, forced deportations involving death marches, summary expulsions, arbitrary executions, and destruction of Christian Orthodox cultural, historical and religious monuments. Several hundred thousand Ottoman Greeks died during this period. Some of the survivors and refugees, especially those in Eastern provinces, took refuge in the neighboring Russian Empire. After the end of the 1919–22 Greco-Turkish War, most of the Greeks remaining in the Ottoman Empire were transferred to Greece under the terms of the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey.

Some says that Muslims hate Jews, but History says a different story. The historical fact is that in 1492 when King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella came to power in Spain there were about a quarter of a million Jews living in Spain at the time. About 25,000 of them ended up in Holland, England, German, and Scandinavia after the Christian reconquest of Spain as the infamous Spanish Inquisitions began. About 3000 Spanish Jews ended up in France and about 5,000 in the Americas. The majority of Spanish Jews ended up in Turkey, the seat of the Ottoman Empire. Morocco took in about 20,000 of them while Algeria took in about 10,000. Estimates are that about 50,000 Spanish Jews converted to Christianity yet practiced their Judaism in secret while pretending to be Christians in Spain. About 20,000 died en route to various places of exile. Regarding Muslim history and the Spanish Jews, known as Sephardic Jews, it was the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II who undertook a mass evacuation of Jews from Spain who had been ordered ...

Well feel totally refreshed now after a gorgeous week away. Turkey may not have been my choice of holiday but I absolutely loved Icmeler!

The staff at the Ida Hotel were all absolutely lovely. In a week I have had 8 marriage proposals and one who wanted to be my "special" friend. They really did make me laugh. My friends and family will be happy to know I come back a very much the happy singleton I was when I went :) I've also learnt a bit about Turkish life and the different calls of prayer from the one in the middle of the night through the 5 throughout the day till late evening. I've learnt a bit about the Turkish Flag, The Ottoman Empire and the 'blue eye' that's everywhere. Will I go back? Yes that's more than a certainty :)
Soma acilarimiz sarilirken 19 Mayis kutlu olsun, Turkiye! Mustafa Kemal ATATURK and May 19, 1919 "The founder of the Turkish Republic and its first President, stands as a towering figure of the 20th Century. Among the great leaders of history, few have achieved so much in so short period, transformed the life of a nation as decisively, and given such profound inspiration to the world at large." Columbia University And HE started all that 95 years ago today, when he left Istanbul with his military rank in the Ottoman Empire behind and landed at Samsun in a small boat to show the world what ordinary people could do for independence, self determination and freedom. HAPPY YOUTH AND Sports Day, TURKIYE!!!
Just checked with Toshi what was he studying in World history for his test tomorrow. He tells me he doesn't know. It turns out it's the Ottoman Empire. I'm wondering about the test.
Sometimes I like to daydream about Austria winning the Austro-Prussian War. But would that have truly been a good thing? Given Austria's commitment to Italy and the Balkans, the possibility of French intervention, the problem of ethnicities, and the strength of Prussia, one doubts that Austria could have forced Prussia out of the German Confederation and united Germany herself. As such, the likely result of Austrian victory would be the return to the status quo ante, with the possible annexation of Silesia by Austria and other comparatively limited territorial reductions of Prussian territory. While this would obviously perpetuate and solidify Austria's informal, indirect, supremacy in Central Europe, something any Austrophile would be completely content with, this would not be sufficient for other purposes. One begins to conclude that united Germany was necessary for Austrian survival, which is indeed what increasingly made Austria subservient to Germany. In 1800 the population of Austria was about 30 mi ...
Where did the name Palestine come from? The name Palestine is given to the region spreading from eastern Mediterranean coast to the Jordan Valley to the area covering Galilee Lake in the north and southern Negev Desert. The origin of this word lies in “Plesheth”. This is a name appearing frequently in the Bible and have started being known as “Philistine” in English. The world root of “Plesheth” lies in the word “palah” was is a term used generally in the sense of migratory, referring to the Palestinian’s conquest of the coast of Mediterranean. These people were mostly originates of Asia Minor and Greece and gradually became a part of the Arab world. The Philistines entered in this region not all at one time but in different eras. The first group reached here in the pre-patriarchal period and made a settlement in Gerar, south of Beersheba. The second group arrived from Crete and settled in the southern coastal area where it divided made different settlements into Gat, Ekron, Ashdod, Asc ...
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 .. ...
Who is Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan? By Craig C. White Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39 warn us about two separate invasions into Israel. They are both led by the chief prince of Turkey. Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, What is a chief prince? The Hebrew word translated chief means first or primary. The Hebrew word translated as prince means governor. So the chief prince of Turkey is its primary governor. I feel comfortable calling him Prime Minister. Today Turkey’s Prime Minister is Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Who is Prime Minister Erdogan? Well he became prime minister in 2003. Since then he has led Turkey towards a more and more Islamist state. Erdogan has visions of a reestablished Ottoman Empire with him at the head. You may remember the protests in Istanbul about building Ottoman Empire style barracks in their central public park. Erdogan dealt with these protestors with a strong hand. The protests were stopped . ...
I am in the midst of an interesting re-read: The Sound of Medieval Song by Dr. Timothy McGee. For those sick of the Copenhagen Canard, i.e. that Byzantine music was captive to Turkish musical influences of the Ottoman Empire, "too eastern" and in need of reform along the lines of the Solesmes re-creations of so-called Gregorian chant, this books puts an interesting light on the latter assertion, in that Dr. McGee's conclusions find that western chants had a much more ornamented and "pan-Mediterranean" sound than previously ever thought. His book provides some background details, particularly for fans of Msr. Marcel Peres and his Ensemble Organum's realizations of Old Roman, Mozoarbic and Ambrosian chants of the early medieval period. Further, he points to a period when changes away from the old style of singing became evident, namely *** of Arezzo's introduction of staff notation. Of peculiar note, is that the book is written without a single reference to Byzantine music in general or specific. I ...

Istanbul: Memories and The City written by Nobel laureate (2006) Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk is a book that paints the history of the decayed city of Istanbul in a deep melancholy during the sixties and eighties. Istanbul: Memories And The City is a stunning novel that begins as the autobiography of the author and eventually becomes the story of an amazing and beautiful city. It gives you one of the best perspectives about Istanbul and the changing demography from the fall of Ottoman Empire to the formation of Republic and beyond, the devastating effects of World War 1, political metamorphosis affecting the common man all wrapped up in the writer's experiences. It's a wonderful book I have just finished.I strongly recommend you to read the book. Other books by the author include The White Castle; My Name is Red, Snow, The Black Book, The Museum of Innocence, and The Silent House.

Turkey formally entered World War I on October 28, 1914, with the bombing of Russian Black Sea ports. The Triple Entente, or Allied Powers, declared war on the Ottoman Empire on November 4. Two major factors led to Ottoman involvement on the side of the Central Powers: German pressure and the opportunism of Turkish minister of war Enver Pasha. Other motives for joining the Central Powers were the German victories early in the War and Turkey's friction with the Triple Entente. Germany's aim was clear: to keep Turkey from joining the enemy (and by gaining Ottoman support, encourage Romania and Bulgaria to enter the Alliance). ...

Vampires The vampire is a legendary creature. Following different folklores and according to popular superstition, this undead feeds the blood of the living in order to draw its vital force. The legend of the vampire has its origins in ancient and various mythological traditions, she finds herself in all sorts of cultures around the world. The character of the vampire was popularized in Europe at the beginning of the 18th century. CA. 1725, the word 'vampire' appears in the legends of Arnold Paole and Peter Plogojowitz, two Austrian soldiers who during a war between the ottoman Empire and the Empire of Austria, would be returned after their death in the form of vampires, to haunt the villages of recall and Kisiljevo. According to these legends, vampires are portrayed as ghosts in shroud that visiting their loved ones or their loved ones, cause death and destruction. Michael Ranft wrote a book, the by masticatione mortuorum in tumulis (1728) in which he examines the belief in vampires. The revenant is comp ...

: 'Bvlgari'- Bvlgari is an Italian luxury goods company that has been owned by the French firm LVMH since October 2011. The trademark is usually written BVLGARI in the classical Latin alphabet (where V = English U), and is derived from the surname of the company's Greek founder, Sotirios Voulgaris (1857–1932). Although the company made a name for itself with jewelry, today it is a diversified luxury brand that produces and markets several product lines including watches, fragrances, accessories, and hotels. Sotirios Voulgaris-( bottom left photo)- began his career as a jeweller in his home village Paramythia (Epirus, Greece, ex-Ottoman Empire), where his first store can still be seen. In 1877, he left for Corfu and then Naples. In 1881 he finally moved to Rome, where in 1884 he founded his company and opened his second shop in via Sistina. The store in Via Sistina was then replaced by the current flagship store in via dei Condotti opened in 1905 by Bvlgari with the help of his two sons, Costantino (1889 ...
The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini, a remnant of the Ottoman empire permitted to remain in Palestine as a religious adviser, was the founding father of the jihad plot to overtake Palestine which lead to a war that continues to this day. When the hearing took place in 1937 the mandate had already been subject to sudden and aggressive mass immigration for ten years by Arabs from neighboring countries called to jihad, particularly from Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The British government wanted to know why al-Husseini had such animosity to the Jewish people and why he wanted to block Jewish immigration. Al-Husseini’s strategy was to fill the barren wasteland with a Muslim majority to try and get rid of the Jewish people by force. During that time the British had blocked Jewish people entry into Palestine to try and prevent an escalated conflict and only Muslims were pouring in illegally and occupying the region. In the hearing the British official states that 400,000 Jewish people were already li ...

Well Pakistan, this is the first thing you should do. You bomb Pashtuns in Afghanistan, annex all of Afghanistan. Then you move up the Amu-Darya and you annex Uzbekistan, Tajikstan, Turkemnistan, Kyrgyzstan and Khazakhstan. The same Pashtun troops that took Kashmir for you, line them up next to China and make them march towards Xinjiang and capture the Uyghur lands and make Uyghurs a part of Pakistan, If you dare, move into Russia and try to annex Bashkirs, and Volga tatars into Pakistan, then send your ships and annex Caucasian muslims to Pakistan...

TURKISH OIL WRESTLING It's the ancient and sacred ritual that traditionally took place before war. Combatants called 'pehlivan' would douse every yummy inch of their body in oil and only wear leather shorts called 'kispet'. Compared to the conventional (yet equally homoerotic) wrestling, oil wrestling is more challenging due to the loss of friction from the oil covering all that hot sexy manflesh. When a younger opponent defeats the older, they would kiss as a 'sign of respect'. Despite the homoerotic implications by western standards, proponents of the obviously homoerotic sport vehemently deny any *** associations with it, more so that it is emergent within an Islamic culture way back from the Ottoman Empire. source:

"There is a demand for Islamic Union all over the world. But when a structure reminiscent of fanaticism in any way emerges God immediately crushes it in order to prevent radicalism appearing. God won't allow structures that are closed to fanaticism to progress. They do not ask why God is overthrowing them. God wants a time like that of the Companions. God will not permit a time in which women are oppressed, when life is low-quality, and when there is no art or beauty. 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 brother? If you get that same wind to blow, you will just tear it down again. They are getting that wind to blow underneath the rubble.

July 28th 1914, supposedly the “last day of peace”. WHAT peace? During the first 14 years of the 20th century. Britain had been fighting in several parts of Africa and Asia.

Probably because they were bored. The Dutch were fighting in Asia, Indonesia mainly. The US were fighting the rebels in Venezuela, Brazil and Nicaragua. The Russians, well, they were fighting themselves after they got beaten by the *** No change there, then. The 1905 skirmish was to become the 1917 to 1923 Russian / Soviet Civil War. WHAT peace?

The main cause of problems about Ukraine is probably the fact that, in the last few decades of independence (the first in hundreds of years), Ukraine didn’t manage to form a well functioning state. The quality of Russian state is nothing to brag about, yet it functions way better. The other problem is that Ukraine has a dangerous geopolitical location. Over the centuries, bits, even whole Ukraine was part of Poland, Ottoman Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, czarist then Soviet Russia, and now Putin’s Russia.

"He [Omar Khayyam] was stretched out in his bedroom with the lights out; his arms desperately held an imaginary Jahan, his eyes red from tears and wine. On the floor to his left were a carafe and a silver goblet which he seized from time to time with a weary hand in order to take long pensive drafts of disillusion" From Samarkand by Amin Maalouf in which Maalouf recreates the history of Khayyam's Rubaiyaat. Here Khayyam has just failed to persuade Jahan to escape with him from the imminent danger to her life. Later that night the palace where she was staying was ransacked and all the occupants massacred. Khayyam's beautiful and moving Rubaiyaat was given birth in the midst of bloodshed and intrigue in the Ottoman empire.

Today I traveled with my group to the ruins of Ephesus, to where Paul wrote one of his epistles. After a lunch in a restaurant hidden in a valley forest; it was cut into two layers into the side of the mountain. On the second layer of the restaurant there was a group of the seven meanest roosters you will ever meet! After lunch I actually visited the alleged house of the Virgin Mary where she fled with St. John after the crucifixion of Jesus! After that we saw the ruins of the basilica and castle of St. John where he wrote his gospel. On the inside of the castle there was a mosque that stood since the days of the Ottoman Empire. To finish the day, a couple of friends I made on the tour group are currently at a hookah bar on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Izmir. Pictures will be soon to follow, I promise!

Prayers for the Nations: May 6, 2014 - Cyprus Republic of Cyprus (South only) Europe Please pray for: That old grievances and bitterness might be overcome by forgiveness. The culture of Cyprus is divided between the two distinct cultures of Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Each community maintains its own culture, linked to the cultures of Greece and Turkey, and there is little cultural interchange between the two groups. The Greek culture first has been present on the island since antiquity. The Turkish culture arrived with the invasion of the Ottoman Empire in 1570, and it was under this rule that the divide between the two communities became prominent and encouraged by government policies. The British did nothing to change this, leaving the island in its divided state with no unified culture.

At 8 p.m., the siren blasted and heads everywhere bowed in silence at the Old City of Jerusalem’s Western Wall and at community centers throughout Israel built by Beit Yad LeBanim—an organization that provides support groups for the families of fallen soldiers and security forces. Following the siren, the Israeli flag was lowered to half-staff. All across the nation, Israelis stopped what they were doing to pay homage to those who died. Even cars and buses stopped in the streets. The sirens mark the beginning of ceremonies at cemeteries throughout the country where soldiers are buried. It was a very moving, unifying moment among the living as they honored the 23,169 casualties of war and terrorism who have fallen since 1860, which is when Jews were initially allowed to live outside of the Old City walls of Jerusalem under the Ottoman Empire.
Marina's History Lesson of the Day: during the reign of the Ottoman Empire there was a mentally unstable sultan called Ibrahim. Among his weirder tastes, he developed a thing for fat women and ordered his people to go out and find the heaviest broad they could find. They did. She was found somewhere in Armenia and she weighed over 300 pounds, and she was called Sechir Para, which means "Sugar Cube". He fell madly in love with her and she became a highly influential concubine for the 17th century. Sometimes real life is better than anything any writer can come up with.

In late 1553 or 1554, Suleiman the Magnificent, the reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, issued a firman (royal decree) formally denouncing blood libels against the Jews.[65] In 2003, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram published a series of articles by Osama Al-Baz, a senior advisor to then Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Among other things, Osam Al-Baz explained the origins of the blood libel against the Jews. He said that Arabs and Muslims have never been antisemitic, as a group, but accepted that a few Arab writers and media figures attack Jews "on the basis of the racist fallacies and myths that originated in Europe". He urged people not to succumb to "myths" such as the blood libel.[66]
I really have a love of history but it's very selective in nature. By that I mean that there are some eras that hold little or no interest for me and others I am very fascinated with. Even though I took two years of Latin in high school and learned some about Roman history the Roman Empire is not of any great interest to me. I don't really have much of any interest in the European Middle Ages beyond the Bubonic Plague and its effects on the populations of Europe and the resultant power shifts and cultural changes that it caused. Other historical eras are highly intriguing to me. The Holocaust era of the1930s and 1940s is one that I find very absorbing as well as the era of the American Civil Rights movement going back to Reconstruction.

Only this time, light operatic moments are popping up in the repeat performance, as Washington has joined London and NATO to castigate Russia with pointed words but no hint of bayonets. “Russia has engaged in a military act of aggression against another country,” Secretary of State John Kerry declared. “The sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Ukraine has been violated,” UK Foreign Minister William Hague said. “I have convened the North Atlantic Council today because of Russia’s military action in Ukraine,” NATO Secretary General Fogh Rasmussen said, “and because of President (Vladimir) Putin’s threat against this sovereign nation.” These ominous words followed Russia’s decision to secure its Black Sea fleet at Sevastopol and ...

The Boatmen of Thessaloníki or the Assassins of Salonica, was a Macedonian anarchistic group, active in the Ottoman Empire in the years between 1900 - 1903. Most from its members were young graduates from the Men's High School of Thessaloniki. From 28 April until 1 May 1903 the group launched a campaign of terror bombing in Thessaloniki, the so-called "Thessaloniki bombings of 1903". Their aim was to attract the attention of the Great Powers to Ottoman oppression in Macedonia and Thrace. Source : The St. Louis Republic., August 09, 1903

Armenian Genocide Big Lie As a bridge between Asia and Europe, with its straits connecting The Black Sea with the Mediterranean and its geopolitical situation at a point where the Central Asian, Caucasian and Middle Eastern natural energy sources intersect, Turkey draws the attention of the entire world. The Ottoman Empire in the past and Turkey at present has always been an arena for which intrigues were incessantly designed. The colonialist superpowers wishing to eradicate the Ottoman Empire from the world by dividing it did not fail to use in their schemes also the Armenians who coexisted in peace with the Turks for so many centuries. There are today just like in the past, several countries striving to secure themselves political and economic benefits at the expense of Armenian community. Monuments accusing Turks and Turkey of having committed genocide are being erected in some countries; decisions intending to recognise the so called genocide are brought into the parliamentary agenda in several count ...

WAKEUPCyprus Revolution of the Mind By Andreas C Chrysafis The city-state of Sparta developed the most powerful war-killing machine ever known in ancient Greece. Young boys from the age of seven were taken from their mothers by the state and sent to military “boot camps” until they reached twenty years of age. Inured to hardship, they went barefoot; dressed in a tunic - both summer and winter - and were portioned meager portions of food for survival. The recruits underwent a rigorous military training focused in excellence; ingenuity; education; moral and social principles but above all else, national pride. Influenced by Spartan ethics, Devsirme was another practice by which the Ottoman Empire took slave boys from Christian families between 7 and 10 years old and converted them to Islam with the primary objective of training the slave-children for military and civil service. In time, the devsirme system produced a fearsome Islamic army made up of devoted slaves set on hatred for all Christians. In ab ...
