If that is the case the Dignified Turks and the West must have realized that the IT turks and their remnants were/are nothing more than a bunch of Fake Jihadist Genocidal criminals.

I think, like love, sole super power status comes only once.Ottoman Turks were the third sole super power in history(after the Persians and the Romans). British were the fourth and Americans the fifth.Next one seems to be China reaching there.Napolean and Hitler tried to be there, but cold'nt. The Greeks and the Egyptians and the Caliphates did become grand powers, but just not at sole super power status.

British rose there on base of engine and the Americans on the gas and oil revolutionary modes of economies.

Today, the total use of energy(oil, gas and power) are the basis with oil refining being the ver top thing that makes you sole super power.Steel production, car production and international trades are some other big items, but all added do not equal oil refining.

China leads the world now in car production, power production, international trade all trillion dollars per annum item, but none close to 6-10 trillion dollars oil refining.China is moving ahead in this biggest item(11 mbpd compared to 18 mbpd for America today)which will be 14-15 mbpd for China against America's 18-19 mbpd around 2020.By 2030, China could become the world's biggest oil refiner, will produce half of world's steel like today, twice or more as many cars compared to America and almost twice more electricity than America.

But, the most important thing of all is that we would love to see all -- big or small, stroner or weak, rich or poor, live at peace with each oyher and with all.

PEACE COMES FIRST AND THERE IS NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT.

Obviously there is no dignity for the real Turks and Muslims in being a fake jihadist, coward, self denying republic.
As a TR citizen Armenian I do understand their feeling.

WHAT IS ISLAM

Islam means Peace acquired by submitting his will before the creator The Allah [God] Almighty. The meaning of Muslim means He who bow before will of Almighty Allah and also give support the cause of Islam.

The first Muslim was Adam who surrendered his will before Almighty Allah and where after in obedience of Allah spent his life. After that a chain of prophets and Messengers sent every age and every period by God Almighty Allah to call the people to Islam to submit their will before Allah, The God and His commandments. SO being The Islam is the oldest religion on earth; beginning with teachings of Adam than Noah; where after Abraham; Moses and Jesus. This concept that Arabs are only Muslims or Mohammed [SAW] has come with new religion is totally wrong and incorrect. The Mohammed [SAW] was Messenger of God like Adam Abraham; Moses and Jesus [peace is upon all of them] All prophets called people towards Allah and show them light and truth. To warned those to save them from evil and do good and righteous deeds for which Almighty Allah has promised to give them reward hereafter or the Day of Judgment. This message never changed from very beginning till Mohammad (SAW) as Holy Quran says.
33- 62
That was the way of Allah in the case of those who passed away of old: and you will not find any change in the way of Allah

According to the Holly Quran man has been created by Lord Almighty Allah only for His worship. Almighty Allah also has raised his position high above sprits and made him His vicegerent. All other creatures, even earth has made to facilitate the man or human being.

Where as all men one day finally have to be gathered before Almighty Allah and will be accountable for their deeds which they did in this life according to commandments of Allah which messengers of Allah conveyed to man kind.

The Mohammad (SAW) being last Messenger of Allah came with final message or Book called Holy Quran.

According to Quran Ch: 21 Verse 107

"And we have sent you (O Mohammad SAW) not but as a Mercy for the all human and all that exists in this World"

In the Sight of Allah the only religion which is acceptable is Islam

Quran Says

"On this day I have perfected your religion for you and completed my favors upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.

13And the LORD God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. 14And the LORD God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; on your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life: 15And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

ya Qadir...
all this is nothing new,nor any different than what other religions say in different languages.in short islam and I do know being a muslim albeit a moderate and a modern one,which means i have no time for mumbo jumbo..all religions are the same and shall be the same as long as we stay on this earth before we finsh ruining it;a system of belief for a better life amongst the humans
nothing more,nothing less..and whoever has died has never come back to tell us what is on the other side either-many claimed to have,but even mehdi,nor jesus could come back yet!..if they couldn`t, what chance the mere mortals like the rest have?-therefore, save your breath trying to influence how people want to live and ,let them make their own decisions .this is what matters not any book that`s written thousands of years ago somehow by either one race,clan,nation,community or any other people , the message is the same;peaceful existance amongst all,but religion these days and for so many centruies has been the main dividing warmonger used by the rich and the powerful to serve their own interests and nothing else.so try to get that in your mind and then we can talk.
