More pro Islamic rubbish from the dhimmis over at the BBC. Head of Religion and Ethics Commissioning Aaqil Ahmed again abusing his position to push Islam on the public at the TV licence payers expense. With Muslim reporter Rageh Omaar presenting the show, you instantly know he will not be critical of his Muslim brothers violent savagery and forced conversions.
What the Ottomans did in the name of Allah under the black flag of jihad, invading killing and converting to create the Islamic superstate is no different to what Adolf Hitler and his 3rd Reich across Europe and North Africa during World War 2. Yet i’m sure the Muslim appeasers at the BBC will not portray the Ottomans in that way.
Personally i will give it a miss as The Ottomans: Europe’s Muslim Emperors is coincidently airing the same time as another program featuring Muslim murders that depicts them as the devious Islamofascists they really are…..yes Homeland is back on Channel 4 at 9pm tonight
The Ottomans: Europe’s Muslim Emperors
Episode 1 of 3 DURATION: 1 HOUR
It was the world’s last Islamic empire – a super-power of a million square miles. From its capital in Istanbul it matched the glories of Ancient Rome. And after six centuries in power it collapsed less than a hundred years ago.
Rageh Omaar, who has reported from across this former empire, sets out to discover why the Ottomans have vanished from our understanding of the history of Europe. Why so few realise the importance of Ottoman history in today’s Middle East. And why you have to know the Ottoman story to understand the roots of many of today’s trouble spots from Palestine, Iraq and Israel to Libya, Syria, Egypt, Bosnia and Kosovo.
In this first episode, the unlikely roots of the Ottomans are revealed. From nomadic horsemen, in a rural backwater of modern day Turkey, they became rulers of a vast empire spanning three continents. At an incredible speed they came to rule over Baghdad and Cairo in the south, where they controlled the holiest sites of Islam – Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem, and they reached deep into Europe, taking in Sarajevo and threatening the gates of Vienna.
This is the forgotten story of how one dynasty, a single family, became Islamic rulers over huge swathes of the modern world
