Then let’s call it Jihad....

On Nov. 14, less than two weeks after the Ottoman Empire entered the war, the sheikh-ul-Islam ,Mustafa Hayri Bey,
made a formal declaration of JIHAD in Constantinople. (Istanbul) The Germans and Austro-Hungarians were the only Christians exempt from the Jihad.Pamphlets were circulated
extolling the need to exterminate the Christians....”He who kills even one believer shall be rewarded by God.”

RE: Then let’s call it Jihad....

I never thought of that, that's great! Thanks!

That kind of Islam was crushed in the modern secular Turkey but it is coming back.. easy to find it documented even right here in FR -- in some important aspects the return of an Ottoman Empire-like Turkey is being immensely aided from right here in the U.S. of A.

Thanks again. I have a lot of respect for the Turks.. even my wife whom I met and married in Madrid made the point that Madrid v. Ankara looks-wise Madrid wins easily.. but it is just the opposite people-wise. I absolutely agree. This was several years before the AK Party and such.
