The Ottomans never achieved greatness on their own accord. They were nomads and as nomads they engaged in the art of rape, plunder and pillage just like their Muslim brothers- the Tartars, Mongols and Arabs. They committed genocide against the indigenous Christian populations even when as they were forced to pay the jizyah tax that forced many into conversion because they could no longer pay. The Turks stole little boys and turned them into mindless killing machines AKA Janissaries or after cutting off their testicles and tops of their penises sold these unfortunate boys as homosexual slaves- if they survived their mutilations (most didn’t). The Ottomans turned once thriving, literate regions from Anatolia to the Balkans into intellectual bloodstained wastelands. They stole and raped without remorse because under Sharia the non Muslim has no recourse in a court of law. Only a Muss is wholly human and so non Muslim are considered sub human and were subjected to the same abuse as an animal of burden. The tales of impalement, burning at the stake, gang rapes at church altars, using Christian children as prey to hunt, throat cutting, and other horrors are well documented but alas ignored by the West. And, that’s unfortunate because the Muslim looks at them in the same way they look at the Eastern Christian. Shame, the West can’t comprehend the enormity of Islamic evil. If they only could then maybe they could still save themselves, but they won’t until its too late.
The Muslim is evil. He’s cruel because he has no heart and the Turk is the most cruel of all the Muslims. It was the marauding Turks attacking mostly at night who struck terror into the hearts of Christians. They were the true vampires and werewolves.
By the 17th century, the Turk caliphate was dying but its buddy, the British saved it so Russia could be kept at bay. The Brits even modernized Turkey’s navy and provided them with the most up to date military equipment so that the blood sucking Turks could better hunt down Armenian children (and their Moms and Dads) The empires of Islam were built on the Muslim terror, and the tears, heartbreak and broken backs of Christians. There is no future for Islam without its host, Christianity. The Turks don’t have a people to stand on- so no empire.
